A Study in Feminist Tarot
Over the years, the theme for the We'Moon day planner, our flagship offering for over 40 years, now, has been built using our feminist interpretation of a different major arcana card each year as our touchstone. Beginning in 1990, through the 2022 edition, one can use these datebooks as a deep study into the various Major Arcana archetypes, as seen through the eyes of the feminist artists and writers whose work is represented there.

Getting to Know a New Tarot Card Deck
When you first open a new tarot card deck, take a look through the cards and see what images you are drawn to, and what your first impressions are. Notice how you approach the cards. What kind of relationship do you wish to have with your tarot cards? Treat them accordingly. You may want to wrap the deck in a special cloth, put it on your altar, create sacred space for laying the cards out—or just take time to get to know the cards and see how you are moved to work with them, as time goes on. If you want the cards to help you get to know yourself better, as guides on your path in life, it helps to be open to getting to know them, too . . .

Want to Learn a New Tarot Card Spread?
There are as many ways of laying out the cards for an in-depth tarot reading, as there are ways of interpreting the cards that turn up. In the We'Moon Tarot guidebook, Musawa shares her favorite tarot card lay-out, what she calls a Mandala Spread—a circular variation on the Celtic Cross. It's a spread of 11 or more cards laid out in a circular pattern, intended to guide you on a path of understanding a particular situation or circumstance that you bring to the divination table for insight.

Reversed Tarot Card Conundrum
To read a card as reversed, or to read every card as upright . . . that is the question. Some readers interpret the meaning of a reversed tarot card as the opposite of the "normal" meaning, others have a more nuanced interpretation. For some, a card turned up in reverse means nothing, and they simply turn the image upright and move along. Your choice may depend on the particular situation you are seeking insight into, the specific spread or card draw that you're doing, or simply your mood at the time. One thing is certain with the We'Moon Tarot Deck: we have ensured that you won't know if a card has been drawn right side up or upside down until you make the flip! We have printed half of the card backs upside down, so when you are shuffling the deck, and laying out your cards, the outcome remains a mystery until you turn the card over. What you do with the results is up to you.
The We’Moon Tarot is dedicated to Pamela Coleman Smith
Pamela Coleman Smith was the unacknowledged woman artist who created the images for the renowned “Rider-Waite” Tarot deck back in 1909, yet it was never published under her name, and she did not receive the credit due to her, for the fine tarot art she created. We pay homage to her by dedicating the We'Moon Tarot to her and her legacy.
