Tarot cards decorated with symbolic images have been used for centuries for entertainment, insight and exploration. The images on the cards depict mythic human experiences and archetypes. Science Tarot reinterprets the tarot with original artworks inspired by scientific discovery of the natural world. This offers an engaging, personal invitation into diverse fields of science, including astronomy, chemistry, physics, and biology.
Science Tarot cards can be laid out in patterns and read like traditional tarot. By viewing the science concepts on each card, associations trigger insights about the world around us and our place in it. Campbell's Hero's Journey is adapted to tell each suit's unique story from Ace to Ten. Find your own hero's path through the myths and archetypes represented in these science stories.
