A colourful Tarot deck of 79 cards - the typical 78 plus one bonus card - based on beautiful original paintings by me, Sushila Burgess. The deck has a Four Elements theme where Wands mean Air, with fully illustrated pip cards that echo the designs of the classic Rider-Waite-Smith deck, though hopefully without so much sexism as in A.E. Waite's original designs. IN STOCK, ships in 1-3 business days.

This is a companion piece to my Fiery Wands Tarot, also currently on sale on Etsy. In the Fiery Wands Tarot pages, there is more information about the inspiration for the deck. Almost all the cards of the Major Arcana, and the suits of Cups and Pentacles, are the same in both decks; but in this version, Swords correspond to Fire and Wands correspond to Air.

There are two versions of the first card : The Juggler as well as The Magician. The Juggler is based on the old medieval decks and is a fairground character; the Magician floats like a translucent phantom above the mountain tops, his magical symbols hovering around him.

This particular copy of the deck has been professionally printed, with rounded corners, and is of the traditional size for Tarot cards: 4.85x2.85 inches (12.3x7.2cm). Although professionally printed, it is still entirely and wholly based on my own hand-painted artwork. It was a massive project to paint a picture for each card of the Tarot. It feels strange to realise that I spent nearly four years on it in total, including all the variations of which the illustrated Airy Wands Tarot is one.

I am in love with this beautiful heartfelt hand painted deck! A lovely size and the pictures really speak to me. I've been learning tarot but find some decks really hard to memorise meanings or infer the meaning. This deck is very clear and intuitive to me. Thank you so much! Xxx

I liked the naive-style art and warmth of this deck so much that I have also ordered the Airy Wands - which will be not so warm but just as approachable.

I love this deck. It lives in my handbag, the pokersize is perfect for it. It's colourful, easy to read and it just makes me so happy. The fact you can choose the card-size and back image is awesome. I'm very very happy with it!!
