This new independent deck by Lauren Over, Earthstar: An Astro-Botanical Tarot is a concoction of astrology, numerology, weeds and wild growth, herbal medicine and the symbolism of flora, fauna, and mythological beings.
The tarot box contains a full 78 card Tarot companion deck and little booklet for Earthstar: An Astro-Botanical Tarot. The deck is hand drawn, partially using plant and food based pigments like walnut, beet, wine, turmeric and spiraling, the images are digitally composed and described with hand lettering and calligraphy.
The book encourages the exploration of Synchronicity: the creation of meaningful connections between seemingly unrelated elements. Like all images, the visuals and text in this deck function as mirrors - as Rorschach inkblots - to help viewers access the contents of their deeper levels of consciousness. The opening to a random page in response to an inquiry, and reflecting upon what's found.
Tarot is a fantastic tool for reflection upon what's foremost, as well as deepest in the mind. Allow the images in this deck to spark memories, associations, and inner dialogues.
Earthstar: An Astro-Botanical Tarot and Book, exclusively on Sacred Infinite. The first 50 book copies are signed and numbered by the artist.
Lauren B. Over, creator of Earthstar: An Astro-Botanical Tarot, holds a BFA in Drawing and Painting from Tyler School of Art (Temple University) and an MFA in Studio Art from California State University, Los Angeles. She currently lives and works as an artist/illustrator in Southern California.
