"The Radiant Tarot lives up to its name, radiating color, and style, and warmth, and meaning. There is a beauty and simplicity to the images that at the same time yields clear and strong reading.” —Rachel Pollack, author of Seventy Eight Degrees of Wisdom
Richly painted, at times fantastical, fine art images of plants, animals, and people co-inhabit a dream-like world guiding tarot readers down a radiant path of awakening creativity and personal growth.



The creation of The Radiant Tarot deck was born from the author and artist’s years of working with archetypal images, the universal symbolic language. Sentient animal and plant kingdoms animate the artwork, honoring and acknowledging the interconnectedness of all life. The art is inspired by “Gaia mind,” where all creation’s forms—animal, vegetable, mineral—affect our precious planet in life-supporting ways.



The words of Rainer Maria Rilke “the animal world?beholds the Open” invite us to understand this renowned poet’s insistence that “one must know animals, must feel how the birds fly, and know the gestures with which small flowers open in the morning.” William Blake speaks of “animal forms of wisdom,” says that “Nature is Imagination itself.” It is the creative energy of these master artists drawn from the natural world that inspire The Radiant Tarot.

Alexandra Eldridge cofounded Golgonooza, a center for the arts, based upon the philosophies of William Blake. She has had over 40 solo shows, and has participated in many group shows throughout the US and internationally. ARTnews, art ltd, Art on Paper, New American Paintings, and American Art Collector are just a few of the publications that have featured Eldridge. Her work can be found in many collections, including those of William Hurt, Steve Buscemi, and Edie Falco. Follow her on Instagram at @alexandraeldridge8.
