FIFTH SPIRIT TAROT

A QUEER AND INCLUSIVE DECK FOR A WORLD BEYOND BINARIES

Expanding the archetypes beyond the gender binary, this deck reimagines tarot from a queer and inclusive perspective.

Originally crowdfunded and self-published in 2020, Fifth Spirit Tarot is now available in a new edition from Hay House! With a new guide booklet, upgraded box, and updated cards, this edition is sure to be just as beloved as the original.

"This is a deck that looks like my friends have invaded my tarot cards. The 5th Spirit is a deck that remembers we all exist in this world and just might need a tarot reading one day. [It] is full of racial, gender, sexual, body, age, ability and class diversity. Like I said, everyone is included. And not just in that token way where 20% of the deck is diverse, this deck is fully integrated and any 5 card + spread you pull is going to be representational."

- Krista Flute, creator of Land Back Tarot and the Marseille Prendre Vie, in a review for the Indie Deck Review Instagram

MAY THIS DECK GUIDE YOU TO YOUR TRUTH, FOR WHERE YOU FIND YOUR TRUTH, YOU'LL FIND YOUR POWER.

"The Empress can have long, cascading hair and a flat, hairy chest. The Emperor can wear flowy clothes, grow a beard, and have breasts. A nonbinary femme can be King, a cisgender man can be Queen, and anyone can defy, expand, or ecstatically embody any gender that they wish. This is true of tarot's archetypes and of you, reading this. Whether you're transgender or cisgender, gay or bi or straight, liberation from enforced gender norms and binary thinking means greater self-determination for us all.

I believe that anyone should be able to pick up a tarot deck and see themselves reflected in it. My dearest hope is that this deck becomes a tool for your own personal revolution, a portal to your deepest inner knowing, and a support as you forge your unique path."

- Charlie Claire Burgess, Fifth Spirit Tarot guidebook

Tarot is a tool of possibility, questioning, exploration, and transformation. Yet too often it is reduced to rigid, binary definitions that reinforce restrictive norms. In Radical Tarot, Charlie Claire Burgess reclaims tarot as a tool that can help free us from oppressive paradigms and empower us to direct our own futures through radical reflection, self-discovery, and change.

THIS IS MORE THAN A GUIDE TO TAROT. IT'S A GUIDE TO YOUR OWN PERSONAL REVOLUTION.
