“With vivid elegant images from varied cultures and traditions, The Uncommon Tarot brings the traditional tarot scenes to life in new and thrilling ways. The cards move across ethnicities and genders in ways that are evocative yet always in harmony with the qualities of the card. Whether you read with the deck, or simply look at the pictures, or, perhaps best of all, tell stories with them, they will carry you to wondrous places.”– Rachel Pollack, author of 78 Degrees of Wisdom

“Shaheen Miro’s gorgeous tarot deck is uncommon in the best possible way. The Uncommon Tarot’s rich, evocative imagery draws from a variety of cultures, places, and perspectives, offering an expansive collection of symbols and archetypes. Sometimes cheerful, sometimes haunting, Miro’s complex interpretations of the familiar cards engage the imagination and inspire us to explore our own depths to gain wisdom from this timeless oracle.” – Skye Alexander, author of The Modern Witchcraft Book of Tarot

“Shaheen Miro’s Uncommon Tarot is a heartfelt contribution to the tarot world. Inspired by myth and devotional art from Eastern and Western traditions, the deck acts as a connector to collective wisdom and the exceptional, or uncommon experiences that make us unique; within these cards, we may see the deeper stories of our lives. Vibrant and richly symbolic, this is a truly global tarot that will resonate with all those who walk the uncommon path.” –Liz Dean, author of The Ultimate Guide to Tarot and HBO's Game of Thrones Tarot.
Tarot has always been a vehicle for storytelling, a way to see and understand human experience. The creative potential of tarot is as varied as the people who work with it. The Uncommon Tarot is a contemporary reimagining of the rich symbolism of the Rider Waite Smith tarot. Shaheen Miro’s artwork breathes fresh life into the traditional tarot imagery, weaving together a mélange of people, places, and settings where everyone is invited to be part of the story regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or race.


The Uncommon Tarot honors and empowers the wisdom of the tarot, the ancestors of our past, the avatars of the future. This is a global tarot deck, one that serves as a path for all people who have a hard time relating to the traditional symbolism of tarot. The Uncommon Tarot is for everyone, but mostly for seekers who wish to live an authentic life.


Theresa Reed provides commentary on the symbolism of the cards, beginning each with a question: What does this card ask of you? Where does this card lead you? Who are you in this card?"
