TAROT BY SAGE© is a divination and empowerment system for feminists and lesbians, leading women on a journey through a 28-card deck with text captions that reveal each meaning ♥ ♠ ♣ ♦
TAROT BY SAGE© consists of 28 cards, one for each of the 28 ribs of the buffalo, and also a sacred number analogous to the 28-day lunar calendar which marks the menstrual cycle, a very dynamic time of the month for women's emotions to surge, a time when she is closest to her spiritual world.
Sage's illustrations fluently take women on a spiritual journey of myths, legends, and psychologies unique and applicable to lesbians.
The name of each of the cards that she has chosen are suggestive of Southwestern desert themes. Native American, and other cultures.
Through the shades of the soft pastels, Sage's designs are intended for women of all races, feminists, and lesbians to examine their lives. TAROT BY SAGE© is the tarot that brings women together over coffee-table conversation.
The cards are meant to stimulate the imagination and will have different meanings to different women, each who will interpret them through metaphor for her personal improvement, spiritual healing, and sexuality. The inner meanings of the cards provide insight through six categories; MEDITATION, BEWARE, HIDDEN STRENGTH, HIDDEN WEAKNESS, SLANT, and POWER.
TAROT BY SAGE© is illustrated by Sage Sweetwater from her novel BLUE CORN WOMAN which Sage released in December 2007 on her publishing list of lesbian Western pulp fiction dime-store novels. The cards are in order on these pages as the scenes appear in the novel, so when you are viewing these tarot cards, you are also seeing the plot lines of BLUE CORN WOMAN.
