"Tarot is fascinating. No matter the deck, each card represents a circumstance, situation, or type of person that can be encountered along the human journey. Our whole experience of life can be reduced, to a degree, to a system of varied archetypes or highly applicable situational portraits. To make the most of each Tarot reading, it’s important to ask how each card meaning can apply to your life and simply allow it to stir up the dust." – Ana Haydee Linares, creator of the Floriography Tarot
Imagine a Tarot deck filled with vintage photographs and designs, where the heads of the Major Arcana figures are replaced with bushes, flowers, plants and trees—and where the Minor Arcana suits happen to be Sunflowers, Birds-of-Paradise, Tulips and Tree Trunks.
A full color chart accompanies this deck, detailing which flower, plant or tree serves as each Major’s headspace. Such substitutions for actual heads make me want to research the various flora to discover the attributions of each, including historical symbolism, so I can (possibly) figure out why Ms. Linares made these artistic and botanical choices.
