Picking out a new deck of divination cards can be a daunting experience.  You need one that speaks to you, one with your life and intentions at heart.  Perhaps the way to go is to search for one designed by someone who too has been looking for a deck that calls to them. Have you ever thought about what goes into making your decks?  Who designs the illustrations or writes the guides? Take some time this month to explore decks that are being developed right now specifically for someone like you.  Watch the journey of creating these cards unfold before your very eyes, and have a hand in bringing them to life..  Here is a list of ten innovative oracle decks to back this month.

Dark Days Tarot Deck

Are you inspired by the moon, her every renewing life, and the way her tides push and pull you every day?  This deck is inspired by the way the moon is both restorative and cyclical with gorgeous black and white illustrations to boot. Preorder the deck, scheduled to ship this month, on Indiegogo.

The Lost Tarot

Inspired by the medieval style art in our favorite classic decks, this collection of only the major arcana features photo-based imagery made to look like ancient portraiture. Originally black and white, the images have been digitally colored, making them look almost like old reels of film that were painted by hand.  The minor arcana is predicted to come out sometime next year. Back this limited run deck on Kickstarter.

Delta Enduring Tarot

“There is a savage beauty in the depths of the swamp. For each drop of blood spilled into those dark waters, the delta rises. She thrives. She continues to resist the encroaching gulf. So too is the way of her people, who despite endless struggle, continue to find love and wonder in the ruins of the natural world.”  We don’t know if there is a more enticing way to describe this divination deck.  With many elements attributed to the deep south and the people of the Delta River, these cards have a uniquely human feel to them.  It includes people of all walks of life, people of all colors, genders, and economic statuses.  If you’d like to fund this deck act soon!  The last day for pledging is June 12th!
