New Tarot Deck Releases for 2021
Written by: GN
At one point in life or the other, we’ve all wanted to know what the future holds. We’ve all felt the temptation to peer into the crystal ball, have our palms read, and, yes, see what the cards have in store for us—we want to explore the unknown.
Since the 14th century, people have looked to the cards to figure out the answer to life’s biggest questions. It is believed that tarot cards harness mystical power to encapsulate all of life’s stages and emotions. Others believe that it’s simply a way for us to understand the universe and ourselves.
Whether you believe in the otherworldly or are simply fascinated with how tarot cards can reflect ourselves, these newly-released tarot decks will simply beguile you!
1. Tarot Vintage Cards
A new twist to the classic Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot designs, this “vintage” version was made to look used and worn for those who want that antique look. Certain parts of each pictorial key used are faintly colored, and the cards have that glossy linen finish.
This deck retails for $26.95 and will be available on Amazon starting this August 8th.
2. The Living Altar Oracle Deck
If you’re in the market for an edgier deck, then this Little Red Tarot deck is the one for you! The whole deck includes 52 oracle cards and 14 spell cards, all rendered in the heavy lines of the modernist style.
Described as “for the radical witch,” the grungy reimaginings of the tarot cards is a stand-out. It’s printed with silk lamination and matte edgings and comes in a deck box with a detailed guide. This deck will be available online in late summer this year.

4. The New Chapter Tarot
The New Chapter Tarot is an immersive and emotional journey through one woman’s changing perspectives on her life and her place in the world. Artist Kathryn Briggs handpainted her exploration of mythology and symbolism in her personal interpretation of the tarot. With vivid watercolors and delicate sketches, the New Chapter Tarot is both personal and universal.
The deck was released last March and can be ordered online through Liminal 11 for only $24.99.
