The rose is a through line in The Rosebud Tarot, a rose-gold thread weaving its way into each line of the Major Arcana and into the heart of every Minor. The playfulness and sharp edges of the rose shimmer through every reading, each card’s dream-layer collage a petal of insight.
The Rosebud Tarot is a 78-card tarot deck based on the structure found in the classic Rider-Waite-Smith. Its exquisite images are digital collages, created by Amanda Lee Stilwell, which offer a dreamscape of pathways into the tarot.
Its guidebook, written by Diana Rose Harper, gives keys to meaning, not just keywords to memorize.
Several of the cards have been renamed, including the court cards. For example,
- THE FOOL becomes THE YOUTH
- THE HIGH PRIESTESS becomes THE WITCH
- THE EMPRESS becomes THE LIFEGIVER
- THE HIEROPHANT becomes THE PROFESSOR
- TEMPERANCE becomes ALCHEMY
- JUDGMENT becomes EMERGENCE
When it comes to court cards, the names have been changed to highlight a core quality that each embodies:
- PAGES become CURIOSITY
- KNIGHTS become VELOCITY
- QUEENS become GENEROSITY
- KINGS become SOVEREIGNTY
