The Spacious Tarot is an immersive 78 card tarot deck and guidebook, created by Annie Ruygt and Carrie Mallon.
The Spacious Tarot is a tarot deck, but to simply call it a tarot deck does not fully describe the magic you’ll find here. This deck invites you into an energetic realm, beckoning you to enter and explore. Immerse yourself in the scenes. Sink into the colors and textures. It doesn’t matter if you are new to tarot or a seasoned reader – these cards will evoke your intuition!
The Spacious Tarot is more than a deck of cards. It is an energetic realm, beckoning you to enter and explore.
The deck features earthy, nature based illustrations, as well as more mystical and cosmic elements. Immerse yourself in the colors and textures, and embrace the wisdom available to you here.
The Spacious Tarot is a 78 card tarot deck, loosely based on the Waite-Smith system. The deck will come with an accompanying guidebook tucked right into the box. You will surely form your own connection to these cards, but the guidebook will offer nudges to help you bond with this unique deck.
There are no humans in our deck, but there are a few hints of humans (such as the skeleton hands in Death and the lantern in The Hermit). A few animal companions are present, most notably in the court cards. The courts have also been re-named to focus less on gender and hierarchy, and more on levels of experience. The Child is equivalent to what most decks call Page, Explorer for Knight, Guardian for Queen and Elder for King.

First edition. Printed on 100% post-consumer recycled card stock.
Important message from the creators (30th Dec 2019):
There’s a small “error” in our first print run!
Hey there! Carrie here with some IMPORTANT INFO for you. Take a look at this card. You might not notice anything the first time you look. But if you look at it KNOWING you’re looking for something off you might spot it…
You see it now, right? A wee typo. Three of Penatcles!
EVERY DECK in the first print run has this “error.” This means that your deck will come with this special card.
There wasn’t much we could do but laugh when we discovered this. Both of us looked at the proofs approximately 13083250913 times and somehow missed this! As hundreds of these have already been shipped (and hundreds more are waiting in the wings) we are hoping that no one will think of this as a fatal flaw.
There are examples throughout various cultures of artists who purposefully put flaws into their work. Although this flaw was not intentional, we like to think we are in good company. This shows the deck was made by real humans, right?!
We hope you understand that small mistakes are just part of supporting an independently created product! We hope you will love the deck as is! If you do not, let us know and we can look into cancelling your order. When we do a second print run (which will likely be later in 2020) we will update the card. But until then, receiving this special Three of Penatcles is just another way of knowing you have one of the very first copies of The Spacious Tarot!
