Based in the Rider-Waite tradition, the major Arcana cards of the Everyday Powers Tarot feature bright, rich colors and inclusive imagery. Each card bears both the traditional card name and a keyword to help both new and experienced readers draw on the empowering aspects inherent in Tarot tradition.
The minor Arcana cards of the Everyday Powers Tarot loosely follow the Rider-Waite tradition for easy readability, and like the Majors, each card includes a keyword as a mnemonic device. In addition to the staves, pots, swords and sovereigns, Everyday Powers features a fifth suit, crystals, which corresponds to the element of Spirit.
The Everyday Powers deck features a court re-imagined to emphasize character traits and community roles. The new titles – Novice, Initiate, Mentor, and Champion, deliberately step away from constructs of gender and hierarchy. Like the other cards in the deck, each court card bears both its name and a keyword to help with interpretation.

First off, let me just say this is my own deck, my creation, and damned if it isn’t calling me out all over the place! For real, it’s worse than my kids! No respect!
I’ve made it a practice to share my own readings for two reasons – first, as a way of journaling them for myself, and second – more importantly – to serve as an example of how to interpret the Tarot as an introspective, transformational tool. If you’re used to looking at Tarot as an all-knowing oracle for divination, it can require a bit of a mind reset to use it in other ways. Sometimes, examples help!

This month’s full moon – with a full lunar eclipse – invites us to examine what is working and not working in our lives, and to question how our emotions both make us vulnerable and give us life. The questions in this spread push you to examine the passions and emotions that move you, how they make you vulnerable, as well as how they empower you. I hope that it helps you examine what’s working for you and what’s not, as well as giving you concrete steps and advice on how to transform each of those areas for the better.
