Daughters of the Moon Tarot

[Star] [6 of Wands] The Daughters of the Moon Tarot was created to celebrate the consciousness of woman and Goddess-centered spirituality. It was originally called the Matriarchal Tarot when first conceived in 1976. Artist Ffiona Morgan sees the Daughters of the Moon tarot as an archive or record of womanlore and knowledge. These round cards bring the idea of cycles and gradations of positive and negative to the tarot. The deck is divided into five arcanas: the aether (majors) and those of the suits (flames, cups, blades and pentacles). Some traditional male cards have been removed or changed to the feminine. The Magician has become the Witch. There are two new major cards: Pan and Coyotewoman, the Trickster. The court cards have been reduced to three in each suit: the Maiden, Mother and Crone - three archetypes of the Goddess. The Daughters of the Moon Tarot is inclusive within its feminine orientation: all races, ages and body shapes are represented. There is a separate companion book for this deck called Daughters of the Moon Tarot.
