Tarot cards are so art, and nothing is cooler than 80’s art. Except 80’s art on tarot cards! Woah! Imagine sitting down to get your reading and your psychic is dressed in an 80’s gypsy outfit and pulls out a deck of 80’s tarot cards… hey, I think I’m seeing my future career calling – 80’s tarot readings by the new age hipster, leave your iPhones at the door!
So what deck are we using? Oh how about the Cosmic Tarot from 1986? I mean check out those earrings. This deck is going for about a tenner + postage at Amazon.
Or maybe the 1983 Karma Tarot is more your thing… What is even happening here? Who cares, it’s 80’s! It’s rad! And it’s only about £10 from Amazon too!
OK those cards are pretty and all, but they just don’t have enough 80’s hair, and let’s face it, the only reason you want a pack of 80’s tarot cards is for the hair. Well kid you’re in luck! The Art Nouveau Tarot from 1989 is just young enough to remember good hair.
Oh such pretty hair Ken! But wait, Matt Myers didn’t stop there! He actually gave his King of Coins a perm-y mullet thing. Like, WOW.
“You will meet a man with 80’s hair.” = Best fortune ever.
It’s just a damn shame these cards cost like £60 used. SAD!
The Yeager Tarot from 1982 is pretty totally awesome too. Blue horses and whatever else is happening in that picture makes me want it! £20 + postage!
And introducing – the amazing Medicine Woman Tarot! It’s so earthy and rainbows! Eeee!
OK, that’s enough goofing around, let’s get onto the two decks that are at the top of my Amazon wish list, and yes I know Amazon is bad right now, but I have to keep track of my wishes somewhere. I promise to buy them from an independent retailer if I can. One of these two has to be a pay day purchase for sure!
The Voyager Tarot deck from 1986. It’s basically a collage deck and it’s amazing. I mean look at this kid. As if you don’t wanna pull that in a reading!?
And I’ve saved the most bizarre tarot deck of the 1980’s for last, and it could well be my favourite. It’s called the Morgan Robbins Tarot deck from 1984, it’s not coloured in, but it is amazing.
Be sure to follow me on instagram at newagehipster333 to check out my posts of these cards as soon as I get them! Wheeeeee!!
Love, light and time travelling tarot!
