The Motherpeace Round Tarot deck is a co-creation of Karen Vogel and Vicki Noble. One night in their home in 1978, within a year of being given their first tarot deck, they were taken by surprise when Karen felt the room literally tilt, and Vicki proceeded to have a life- changing vision of Goddess energy and transmission of ancient wisdom. They soon began drawing the Motherpeace deck based on the traditional tarot system with ancient images from goddess-centered cultures throughout the world.
The 78 cards in this round tarot deck are powerful, evocative images, using 30,000 years of symbols.
