THE FOX TAROT: PIPS EDITION
The Fox Tarot is an astrology-inspired tarot deck that blends together traditional tarot wisdom with the zodiac and planets. Each box includes 78 cards and a 116 page guidebook. All cards and the guidebook were designed and written by Taylor Haigh on Gabriola Island in British Columbia, 2017.
I have been working with the Tarot for a long while and in recent years felt it helped me navigate my own mental health during a period of struggle. I thought it would be really helpful and rewarding to design my own deck with a guidebook that had all the information I usually looked for all in one place to make readings that much easier. The Fox Tarot was born! I went underground for the whole winter and when I emerged the Fox Tarot was finished and off to print. It has been an illuminating and cathartic process for me, and I hope everyone that uses the deck loves the artwork and the feel of the cards.
The guidebook covers meanings for all 78 cards in addition to zodiac signs, astronomy, elements, card suits, and additional card groupings. It also discusses intention, tarot therapy, and card spreads. The tarot is a tool to help you on your journey of self exploration, asking the questions you didn't think to ask and leading you to new revelations and discoveries about yourself.
A successful Kickstarter campaign lead to the printing of the first edition of The Fox Tarot in 2017. In 2018 it was sold out and a second printing was done of what would be known as the Pips Edition. The second printing sold out in 2019.
For the third printing the cards have been totally reworked with revisions to some of the Major Arcana (most of which will remain the same) and a new cleaner look for the pips. The cards feature a new design for the back that does not reveal the orientation. The guidebook has been restructured for ease of use collecting all associations for each card onto one page rather than in separate sections, and fleshed out further. The box has been upgraded to a sturdy two piece box with new design, and the edges of the cards are gold for some extra shine.
"I love this deck so much. The card design is beautiful yet simple, perfect for a minimalist enthusiast." - Taylor-Nicole
"This is just as expected, super nice design and the quality of the cards very good. The contact with the buyer was friendly and fast. I love the fox tarot, thanks!" - Cristina
"Beautiful cards! Love the quality and gilding. I wasn’t sure if I would ever gel with a black and white deck, but that was before I came across this one. I love that the majors have their associated signs on the cards (I’m kinda a newbie so this will help me memorize), and that moon phases, MBTI, and other associations have been made with the pips and courts. This feels like a deep deck I’ll definitely spend some serious time with. Cannot wait to dive in with it! Thank you!" - Karisa
"This is such a massive, beautiful deck, I'm so impressed and in awe of the art. The guide book is thoughtful, but minimal leaving lots of space for your own guidance during your readings. One of my new favourites." - NamasteLaurie
"What a stunning tarot deck! Amazing quality - the box is super sturdy, and the cards are thick and feel amazing. And the booklet that comes with it is so useful and well written." -Stephanie
"These are so beautiful and sturdy. The gold on the side of the cards is so vibrant. The designs are so clear and clean as well. I also love that the astrology signs are listed at the top. The book is also amazing too and really helped me to see tarot in a new perspective and become better at reading." - Jessica
"Thank you Fox Island! I am super happy about my new deck. The feel of the cards is super nice and the illustrations are beautiful and inspiring, also I like the little guide, very practical." - Clara
"Thank you for creating this gorgeous tarot deck! The overall feel and quality of the cards is awesome and the art itself has a fantastic mysteriousness about it. Thank you!" - so
"Beautiful art, excellent print quality, and all-around great product. Taylor has obviously put a lot of love into her work; it has so much detail. Divination? Psychological introspection? Playing cards? This deck has you covered! Despite its size, the guidebook is packed full of info, but if you are a beginner you might benefit from additional resources covering RWS card meanings since this is a pip deck and lacks traditional imagery. Even so, this is an amazing deck and I highly recommend it! If, like me, you’re sick of traditional RWS imagery and can’t get into it, grab this deck! Taylor’s art style is so funky and fun! Origami animals? Sign language? Yes, please!" - 720red
