Three tarot cards next to each other one of a woman in childs pose under water, another of a humpback whale, and another o two birds in a nest.
Mariza Tovar calls her deck “The Gentle Tarot.” She created it, in part, because she’s been practicing tarot herself for many years and hadn’t come across a deck with artwork that reflected the unique support and warmth she seeks while practicing. (COURTESY OF MARIZA TOVAR)
