Motherpeace Round Tarot

[Chariot] [4 of Wands] The Motherpeace Round Tarot by Vicki Noble and Karen Vogel was one of the first feminine, Goddess-oriented decks, designed to celebrate "the Great Mother and Her peaceful, life-loving creatures." It was self-published in 1981 in Berkeley, California and later released in a U. S. Games version in 1984. The cards are round with brightly-colored scenes featuring mostly women and some men of many races and cultures, both modern and old. The court cards are gender-balanced: shaman, prietess, son and daughter. These round cards can take on many positions in a reading beyond the usual two choices - upright and reversed. The Motherpeace Tarot is also available in a mini version. There is a separate companion book for this deck called Motherpeace Tarot Guidebook.
