For hundreds of years the tarot has been used as a system of divination. Seekers have used the tarot to gain insights, tell fortunes, make plans. But as the saying goes, if you want The Gods to laugh, make plans.

Enter The Tarot of Why. 

The Tarot of Why will not tell you where you are going. But it may tell you Why you are going there. 

The Tarot of Why will not tell you what you are going to do. It may tell you Why you are going to do it. 

The Tarot of Why will not tell you when something is going to happen. 

But it may tell you Why. 

We live in confusing times. We never know what's going to happen next. Wouldn't it be comforting to at least know Why?

Ask The Tarot of Why.

R. Campbell ( created and designed each card by hand. Ink, watercolors, gouache, coffee and blood were used to create each original design.

Those familiar with the Rider/Waite symbology will see that The Tarot of Why holds to that tradition and departs from it as well.
