1. Seventh Sphere Tarot de Marseille

The Seventh Sphere Tarot de Marseille is a modern aesthetically pleasing twist on the very ancient Marseille Deck. The most commonly known and traditional tarot deck in the west is the Rider-Waite deck, which you may have heard of. However, before the rider deck and especially in Europe the Tarot De MArseille was the most well known and used deck in the world. This deck was a more simple version of the tarot we are used to today with only the major arcana and court cards illustrated with deatil. This new seventh sphere spin deck gives a new, modern, and beautiful look to the original Tarot de Marseille. Very dainty and gorgeous deck! It also contains rose gold accents decorating each card!

2. Arcana Iris Sacra Tarot Deck

Arcana Iris Sacra Tarot Deck

From the Labyrinthos website: “A gilded edge tarot deck based on the language of color, the tree of life, and the tradition of the Golden Dawn. 4 colors represent the 4 elements, and a rainbow represents universal energy, creating a simple framework for reading. The Arcana Iris Sacra, translated roughly from Latin as the “Mysteries of the Sacred Rainbow” is a vintage-inspired tarot deck, drawing upon the dense and complex traditions of the Golden Dawn, the Kabbalah and astrology.” This tarot deck is beautiful, detailed, modern, and mysterious!
