About the Deck

Fifth Spirit Tarot is a modern and independently published 78-card tarot deck, lovingly created to expand the archetypes beyond the gender binary and to reflect the variety and diversity of human bodies and human spirits. With nods to Smith-Rider-Waite symbolism, the imagery re-imagines the cards from a queer and inclusive perspective, familiar and new at the same time, with the intent to connect you to the full spectrum of your possibility.


Fifth Spirit Tarot is dedicated to the queers, the weirdos, the outsiders, the survivors, and everyone else making magic from the margins. It knows that light never comes without its shadows and that binaries are an illusion. This deck is made of grief and love, hope and stubbornness, healing and fierce survival. It's a testament to not just surviving, but surviving and thriving.

Its purpose in this world is to help you do the same.

Tarot doesn't tell the future.



                         It helps us create it.
