According to Pamela Eakins, the “scribe” for the Tarot of the Spirit, this deck has three purposes. It can be used as “a set of images for meditation, a step-wise path to spiritual realization and a sacred oracle for divining mysteries of the past, present and future.” The Tarot of the Spirit has a spiritual quality that is heightened by the washes of color and flowing images on the cards painted by Joyce Eakins. The suit names reflect the four elements and the court cards bear family names. There is also a mystery card – “the master card of the deck.” It has an inverted yellow triangular shape, but is unlabeled. There is a separate companion book for this deck called Tarot of the Spirit.
