Connect with your ancestors to seek guidance, insight, and healing with this unique deck that combines playful vintage photography overlaid with familiar tarot imagery and symbols.
The Relative Tarot features vintage 19th-century photographs of ancestors from a wide array of ethnic origins and various walks of life. Its aim is to help you discover your true potential by connecting you with your beloved ancestors.
The ancestors come together in the spirit of providing not only answers but resolution, evolution, truth, and transcendence. They are here to help illuminate that deeper meaning that may or may not have eluded them in life.
This spirited deck is rich in photographs overlaid with familiar tarot imagery. The accompanying book guides readers on how to calculate their personal birth, annual, and significator cards, inspired by the works of Mary K. Greer and the late Angeles Arrien. The Minor Arcana represents how our life lessons have materialized on the physical plane through the initiations, tests, and lessons unique to each suit.
The deck includes multiple versions of select cards in the Major Arcana so that readers can choose those that best represent their sexual orientation and gender identity.

“What would it be like to sit down with your ancestors? What questions would you ask them? What stories might they tell you of their own travails? And how might their experiences mirror and shed light on your own? Through Carrie Paris's utterly unique tarot deck and book you will discover the support and wisdom that your ancestors can bring you. Heal your present by getting in touch with the past. Your work may even bring ease to those who came before. Highly recommended.”

“This is one of those rare decks that causes you to gasp when you open up the box. The gilded edges, vintage images, and accompanying guidebook will delight every tarot lover! The extra cards make The Relative Tarot stand out from traditional decks—there are three versions of the Lovers, which allows the reader to find a more accurate depiction of themselves and their loved ones. Alternate numbered versions of cards for Strength and Justice means there is now an option to decide if you prefer Strength as an Eight or Eleven. Frankly, I prefer keeping all of them in the deck when reading with The Relative Tarot because I’ve found it adds subtle nuances to the stories the cards are trying to tell. This deck is perfect for communing with the ancestors, divining the future, and illuminating your life’s purpose. I’m madly in love with The Relative Tarot and I think many more readers will feel the same way."
