Created by Mariza Ryce Aparicio-Tovar, a nature-inspired indigenous artist based in Alaska, The Gentle Tarot: Heal Yourself, Heal the Earth simply radiates soulful beauty, thoughtful positivity and spirituality.
A classic 78 card deck, some of the cards are lightly based on the Rider-Waite system, although many of the illustrations are the result of complete surrender to creative/spiritual process. Motifs and symbols, along with colors, have been used throughout the deck to make for easy recognition and to assist with remembering the meanings of the cards. This deck will give you gentle and loving readings as the title suggests. The illustrations are simultaneously thoughtful and powerful, mixing imagery of nature, animals and women of all shapes and colors.
Cards have color coded rims to match their element: Major Arcana - Spirit - Purple // Cups - Water - Blue // Wands - Fire - Red // Thunder - Air - Yellow // Stones - Earth - Green
In order to honor and care for the Alaskan animals and environment that underpin the visual and spiritual inspiration of this deck, 10% of proceeds will be donated by Mari to ocean and climate change research.

\\ ABOUT MARIZA RYCE APARICIO-TOVAR ||
Having grown up with ceremony and daily rituals that connect us with the elements, songs that ancestors sang with words and sounds that speak to this connection, I am inspired to share the love, honor, and respect that our planet is due. It is my hope that the love embedded in my work can serve as a reminder of this connection so that we may feel supported by our natural environment and also responsible for its well-being. Heal your self, heal the earth.
