As bona fide students of the occult, we view the tarot cards as sacred works of art rendered from spiritual communications which we were blessed to receive. We are generally uninterested in crafting mundane novelty tarot decks merely as a framework for an art project, and some of us even see this trend as a corruption of the term tarot.
Furthermore, we do not endorse fortune telling, as the occult-adapted tarot cards were intended to be used for spiritual purposes such as divination. We believe readings should empower the querent with heightened awareness, giving one the ability to create one’s own future with better clarity — not to direct the querent blindly towards a certain future. We put our creations out there to help seekers find, and cannot be held responsible for the misuse of these potent spiritual tools.
