As far as we are aware, the creator has no plans to re-print this deck. We spoke to Ellen about her decision to discontinue this deck – do read!
“The Tarot of the Crone is inspired by the ancient holy one. She is grandmother, witch, and hag. She has been ignored or trivialized because she holds powers that others fear or deny. Powers of time and transformation, of death and shadow, of wisdom and pain, of magic and wonder.”
This unique feminist tarot reclaims the power of the Crone, the hag, the elder, the wise woman. It is a wonderful companion for shadow-work and for connecting to ancestral femme and feminine wisdom, drawing on the symbolism of colour, of light and shadow, and the four elements of earth, air, fire and water.
