Asherah Tarot Third Edition

Greetings to you all!

I have decided it is time to rework the cards and reassess the means of production so I plan to withdraw them from sale and rerelease them a few months later in a third edition. There will be changes to a few of the cards that I have decided are not completely satisfactory and also a rethink of the container issue. A tin or a pouch of some kind and hopefully a hard copy of the revised guide book. I’m looking at releasing the third edition at the beginning of the Year of the Rat (next year), which will mark new 60 year cycle. I also want to try and improve the site situation as well so there is a lot to do. I am hesitant to name a release date yet because these things always take longer than you expect.

Please note that on Septembers full moon I will withdraw the second and first editions from sale in case you want to get a copy of any of them before they go.

I still do see the deck and the book as a work in progress, and so I intend to continue being an independent creator, and keeping total control of my creative content. Of course I won’t mess with the core images. I’m too lazy to go through all that again! But there are one or two cards that really need to change.

The last year has been rest and recovery time for me, essential down time after more than ten years intense work on the cards, followed by moving to the opposite side of the world, but now finally I am starting to regain my strength and inspiration for the task at hand. Leaving the city to live on a beautiful island has done wonders for my health and happiness and I now feel I can get to work again. 

I am so very grateful to all of you for your support and love over the years. The response to the release of the Asherah Tarot totally exceeded my expectations and it’s thanks to you all that I am now inspired to get back to work and make this deck the best that it can be.

Sarah

    1. Nothing definite yet. It probably will end up being a few months away yet.
      Lots of decisions to make.
      Thanks for your interest and for encouraging me to get a move on 🙂

  2. Hi Sarah,

    I have been looking at all my Tarot decks and yours is strikingly my favorite. I have the large cards—I think I got them from makeplayingcards. The card stock is incredible. I just sent my niece a picture of QoS, and there was absolutely no glare.

    Sarah I am wanting to ask: will the next edition (if you know) have a smaller-sized option? Also, I apologize if you’ve already posted this—are these oil or acrylic paints? Is there anywhere you’ve written about your artistic process? I would love to learn more—I’m a new painter and love learning from brilliance.

    I hope you’re doing wonderfully! Thank you!

    1. Hi Rachel,
      Thanks very much for your lovely feedback 🙂 It’s good to hear you like the Makeplayingcards edition as I will probably use them again and will most certainly have a small poker sized version as well as a large one, as that worked very well last time.
      The original paintings are gouache, watercolour and acrylic ink on 35 X 50 cm rag paper. I haven’t written much about the process but really I should do that. Might be a good idea for my next blog post!

  3. I’m very much looking forward to the third edition! I only have the poker-sized version (which I love), but I’d really like to have both the large and small sizes of the third edition (and a tin or hard box for storage and/or travel would definitely be welcome!). I don’t believe I ever received a guidebook, though (I had ordered the decks through Makeplayingcards). I would greatly appreciate one for the next edition (especially with as much information as possible about all the details you painted into each card and the symbolic meanings you intended to convey). Is there any way I could obtain a copy of the original guidebook in the meantime?

  4. Hi Sarah,

    I would like to be notified when your deck comes out for purchase. I’ve seen it recently and fell in love with the images. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to have it!

    1. Hi there 🙂
      Well I was waiting for the Covid chaos to subside but it only seems to be getting worse.
      I have decided to get on with it anyway, but it might take time because I have been busy changing cards during the lock down, and there are now at least a dozen needing reformatted! Planning to write a blog soon regarding progress.

      1. Hi Sarah,

        I’m so excited to hear you have decided to go on with the new edition! I look forward to your blog post about it. Thanks so much!

    1. I wouldn’t say that. This is not a themed deck and I started it long before I discovered Asherah, but as it progressed to completion and I learned more about solar goddesses and the Qabalah, she came to represent a certain type of goddess I found inspiring. To me she is a spirit of the Tree, and represents middle eastern solar/lion goddesses in general.
      Plus her name sounds a bit like mine, with an honorific…Ah Sarah.

  5. Hi Sarah,
    I am so looking forward to buying the third edition of the Asherah Tarot. I was bidding on one of the older versions on eBay, but it got away from me in the final moments😔
    Will the guidebook be available for sale too?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Lorraine, sorry for the late response.
      I haven’t really found a solution to printing the book yet, but I’m working on it. I’ll certainly have a pdf available.
      Kind Regards
      Sarah

  6. Merry Meet….I am so absolutely in LOVE with your Tarot deck and I was wondering IF the 3rd. Edition will be available by the Christmas/Gift giving season?? The colors are so delicious and the symbols are so dreamy…it’s candy for my eyes and it would absolutely make the perfect gift to myself ….lol….I actually love the Larger scale cards because of my old lady eyes so I hope you will have the Large size and the smaller Bridge size….Thank You so much …be safe and well…KAT

    1. Hi Kathryn,
      It would be a good idea to get it out for Christmas 🙂
      I will certainly release both large and small.
      Thanks very much for your kind feedback!
