The tarot is truly for everyone. Rainbow Moon Tarot is a fantastical tarot deck that breaks out of the traditional gender binary, instead focusing on inclusivity, whimsy, and humor.
When creating this deck, the alternative designer and artist Sam West knew some things would be important for her to include—fantastical elements, modern fashion, diversity, breaking out of the traditional gender binary, and whimsy. She opened her Instagram to volunteer models for the deck to ensure she would include real, diverse bodies. The result is stunning.
Although the traditional tarot structure has been maintained, the images have no gender, which allows the reader to focus on the duality of receptive and outward energy. Created through a Kickstart campaign, this deck offers a unique, hands-on guide to the craft of ritual-making in a secular age.
Intended for serious readings, Rainbow Moon Tarot also reminds us that it is okay to smile and enjoy the cards.
The Salem Witch Trials: Reckoning and Reclaiming (October 7, 2022 - January 22, 2023) explores how, even after 300 years, Salem’s witch trials remain a defining example of intolerance and injustice in American history. The extraordinary events of 1692-3 led to the deaths of 25 innocent people, the vast majority of whom were women. The exhibition includes tangible fragments from the past that illuminate the real lives of Salem’s residents: those accused of witchcraft, their accusers, and those who defended them against legal charges, risking their own lives and reputations in the process.
