Design and Artwork
‘Fifth Spirit Tarot’ by Charlie Claire Burgess is an innovative tarot deck that reinterprets traditional tarot archetypes through a queer and inclusive lens. This deck features 78 beautifully illustrated and hand-lettered cards that go beyond the gender binary, offering a unique and fluid perspective on tarot symbolism.
About the Deck
The artwork in ‘Fifth Spirit Tarot’ includes diverse representations of race, body shapes, abilities, ages, and gender expressions. Instead of renaming the cards for gender neutrality, the deck challenges and expands traditional notions of gender through a creative blend of traditional titles and queered imagery. It represents a shift in understanding tarot as a tool that can encompass all aspects of human experience, including diverse gender identities.
