“When I created this deck, I had two goals – make each card a piece of art that pays homage to the crow on each card and to infuse each image with familiar symbolism from the original Rider-Waite tarot deck so that the novice and professional tarot reader will be able to use the deck with confidence without needing to memorize new interpretations.”
~MJ Cullinane, creator of The Crow Tarot
The Crow Tarot is a marvelous new deck, inspired by the mystical energy of this remarkable bird. Each card is a transformation of a classic Tarot card, and the human figures have been re-imagined, or shape-shifted, into Crows.
This added layer of symbolism brings greater depth to your readings and invites deeper exploration. The Crow Tarot will lead you to consider the cards’ messages from a fresh and fruitful perspective.
“Connect with the intuitive power of the crow and fly through the veil.”
MJ Cullinane, the creator of this fabulous tool, uses vivid descriptions and powerful language to explain her personal connection to crows, and the origins of The Crow Tarot:
“From the perspective of an artist I often find myself mesmerized by their feathers, each one holding a myriad of colors that when combined with sunlight their bodies appear vibrant and iridescent, as shades of purple, deep indigo and soft caramel colors play in the light and then in an instant turn pitch black as if creating a hole in space before my eyes.
Living in Seattle, […] Each evening around dusk the skies become speckled as hundreds of birds make their evening trek across the city sky, echoing between the buildings and trees loud rambunctious cawing drowns out even the low flying seaplanes.”
The Mysticism of Crows
The Crow, being a creature of every continent, is recognized the world over in symbolism and folklore. In some legends they can be tricksters, and shape-shifters who can take on human form. Other traditions hold that contrary to what their midnight black color would suggest, they are a sign of good luck to come! And finally, the Crow is a figure of personal transformation, often signalling an important transition in life. It is an appropriate symbol for the Tarot, and a powerful companion to bring along as the cards lead you on a spiritual journey.
MJ Cullinane Talks Tarot
“We all possess the answers to our life questions, everything we need to know is already within us – we just need to tap into the source. I believe through the use of tarot cards we have a direct channel to our higher-self and when used correctly tarot cards are less of a fortune-telling novelty but instead a valuable resource for gaining access to our psyche.
The Crow Tarot deck was created to help you gain a better understanding of what makes you tick, what areas are you finding difficulty developing and how best to maximize your strengths. I believe that through the Tarot we can create a blueprint of our life’s purpose and how to achieve it.”
