In conversation With Lisa Sterle, Creator Of The Modern Witch Tarot– interview with Charlotte Richardson Andrews ( The Culture Witch). Being a Satanist in Mexico, however, is still taboo, since many people around the world have misconceptions about what the practice entails. Never before have I come across such a cute guidebook as the one included within ‘The Modern Witch Tarot’. The strength of feminine energy is what we notice first when looking through this deck but masculine energy is not forgotten with the absence of male-forward characters. The introduction by the artist details how she came to create the deck as well as her hopes for you, the Seeker, as you use the Modern Witch Tarot.

The Modern Witch Tarot deck aims to celebrate diversity and help us to connect with the practice of Tarot. Acclaimed illustrator Lisa Sterle marries the symbolism of the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith deck with youthful, stylish characters and items from our modern lives.Aside from her focused development in spirituality, Lou enjoys writing freelance articles and ebooks on meditation, wellness, and crystal healing. While witchcraft is a relatively prominent part of the culture of the US, and steeped into the energy of Mexico, it takes a different tone in Japan, where the majority of the population is polytheist.

Dive into the magical world of tarot with this colourful deck, embracing the traditional tarot symbolism, with a modern twist. Navigating pop culture with a pointed hat and a sharp cackle, the witch is an elusive figure of power and mystery. You may find the answers to your questions about the past, the present, and the future in the Modern Witch Tarot Deck, and you can use the deck’s encouraging messages to take the next step toward achieving your goals. This deck is intended for people of color, LGBTQA and femme people, the young, middle-aged, and mature; however, cis women (and male supporters) may also use it. On the back, we are told that the Modern Witch Tarot deck is ‘inspired by fashion and modern witches from every walk of life.The finish on the cards is super smooth, with a high gloss finish which makes the cards quite slippery and (in spite of the density of the deck) easy to shuffle. While the depictions of technology may put some readers off, I really like how it reflects the kind of witches and Tarot readers that exist in the world right now. While some may regard it as comic book art, the pictures don’t have the monotonous uniformity of comics; each figure is distinctive, with minute elements characterizing their look and emotion. It was at this point that Lisa began illustrating this very card, incorporating her modern ideas and flair for fashion within her work.

Known for their hatred of children (see Roald Dahl’s The Witches) and love of evil (the Wayward Sisters in Shakespeare’s Macbeth) as much as for their ability to create and heal (cue Harry Potter) , witches have always reflected the zeitgeist, whether that be society’s feelings towards women or our collective relationship to ritual and magick. The Modern Witch Tarot deck by Lisa Sterle updates the traditional Rider Waite Tarot deck and gives it a fun and contemporary look. My father has always fostered my curiosity for the unknown and religion, while my mother shared practices like yoga, crystal healing, mindfulness and meditation with me since I was a toddler. It’s a wonderful way of underlining the very important concept that we all possess both energies and we draw from both at different times. The card asks us to step into the unknown, and the Fool infamously does not see the cliff right in front of them.As someone who is always walking around town, earphones in, oblivious to everything, I definitely see myself in this card.

It’s entrenched in personal empowerment and impacted by the culture that each witch is surrounded by. Based between Tokyo and Los Angeles, her work dissects the differences between the two cultures and the fusion of feminism and witchcraft in the US. The cards measure 70 mm x 120 mm, which is a fairly standard size for tarot cards, they are neither overly long nor particularly broad. I would also appreciate it if the guidebook contained the card keywords, as I think keywords are super useful for beginners. The Modern Witch Tarot is a magical take upon the traditional RWS tarot, inspired by fashion and modern witches from every walk of life, this divine deck will spark your imagination, enable you to seek your inner wisdom and aid you in the discovery of your true power.Once I got my hands on the Modern Witch Tarot deck, I was immediately impressed with the artwork and inclusive imagery. I’m sure that at some moment in our lives, we all get to a point where ‘enough is enough’ and Lisa felt that she was at her lowest when she was reminded of ‘the ten of swords’– the tarot card signifying defeat and woe. At first glance the deck seems to be top-heavy with the female imagery, but gender/identity is depicted across the spectrum, with traditionally masculine elements represented in such a way as to be open to interpretation. She wants to showcase and celebrate the diverse people who read Tarot and leave the exclusionary Rider-Waite imagery in the past. And this deck definitely celebrates strong people of many different kinds, including LGBTQ, plus-size, and older people.
