Featuring body outlaws, endangered cultures, and anti-colonial belief systems, THE NEXT WORLD TAROT envisions a world where justice relies on respect and revolutionary love. The Fool’s Journey is about smashing systematic oppression, owning their truths, being accountable to the people and places that support them, and taking back a connection to their body that may have been lost through trauma or societal brainwashing. A truly powerful deck that is intersectional, anti-oppression, and speaks to the ongoing fight for liberation, love, peace, and justice for all. The NEXT WORLD TAROT is a visual spectacle of both the battle cry and the reconnection between outcasts and their criminalized identities.
This set includes 78 Tarot Cards (4 x 6 inches, full colour) and accompanying Tarot Reader, written and illustrated by Cristy C. Road. Also available in a smaller deck-only pocket edition (2.6 x 3.5 inches) with instructional booklet.
