Dark goddesses
are disturbing, fearsome, and beautiful. They can be shunned or overlooked, as they represent aspects of life that people find uncomfortable--sometimes only when those powers are in female hands. Powers of age and death, sex and sovereignty, ferocity and judgment. Of magic, mystery, and transformation. Of suffering and shadow.

The Dark Goddess Tarot invokes these beings, that their stories and wisdom may guide us through the darkness they traverse. This tarot is inspired by and for troubled times. Not to deny pain nor celebrate it, but to look at it with honesty, address it with honor, then bloody well do something about it.

Dark Goddess Tarot is a 78 card tarot deck with a goddess or mythical female figure depicted on each card. The structure is traditional although several cards have been renamed. Among these are Sovereignty (Emperor), Corruption (Devil) and Liberation (Judgment).

The suits are named for the four magical elements: Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. Goddesses are selected for the suits based upon an affinity for the element as well as for the meaning of the card.

The titles of the court cards have changed into labels of fearsome, female power: Amazon, Siren, Witch, Hag. The Amazon is fierce and independent, the Siren's power is her sexuality, the Witch is a practitioner of magic, and the Hag walks with death.
