Arcana Iris Sacra Tarot Deck
A Rainbow Tarot Deck for Reading the Language of Color
The Arcana Iris Sacra, translated roughly from Latin as the "Mysteries of the Sacred Rainbow" is a vintage-inspired tarot deck, drawing upon the dense and complex traditions of the Golden Dawn, the Kabbalah and astrology.
Use the colors and their intensities to create additional layers of meaning:
∙ Red - Fire: Willpower and creativity
∙ Blue - Water: Emotions and habits
∙ Yellow - Wind: Intellect and ideas
∙ Green - Earth: Material world and sense of stability
Each card also contains a rainbow - the four colors described above - either swirling, twisting, moving or beaming - to help you understand the focus of each card and where the primal energy of that card lies.

Love them!💜 Exactly what I needed in my life! Thank you!
I have several tarot decks and this one just might be my new favorite. I love the size of the cards, and the detail on each one of them. The gold edging and design on the back of each card is beautiful. I love the feeling of the cards, they don't stick together, they're smooth and easy to work with with a beautiful finish. I would highly recommend these to ANYONE interested in tarot.
These cards are absolutely gorgeous. They seem to fit me & glide so much easier through my hands than other tarot decks I own. I am quite new to tarot, so I’m thankful for the companion app. My only question is why on the companion app I can’t select the cards in reverse... again I’m new to tarot so maybe it’s just something I’m not understanding. I am obsessed with these cards though.
Hey Kirsten! Thoth tradition decks weren't intended to be read with reversals -- but I *do* know some folks that read them reversed too. I am one that doesn't, and haven't felt comfortable adding that to the app at the moment. These days, I am *sometimes* reading with reversals using this deck, with the hope that with enough practice I'll feel more comfortable adding those meanings to app. Hope this helps!

Gorgeous deck that's especially fun for anyone already familiar with the elemental/astrological resonances. I particularly like the way each card is interpreted as a piece of the Fool's journey. However, it's worth noting that some of the variant cards (Lust instead of Strength, for example,) can be difficult to match to more traditional decks/books due to wrong card numbers and changed names, which is only a problem if you like to consult multiple interpretive resources. The booklet included is pretty sparse in its descriptions of each card (think two or three words), which means that you pretty much have to consult the app to do a reading if you don't have all the cards memorized. Some of the card descriptions don't match with the app (wrong descriptions attached to cards, wrong numbers on cards, etc.), but these are minor criticisms that could theoretically be fixed with an app update and won't slow you down much if you know what you're doing. The art is striking and the cards good quality--a great deck but probably wouldn't recommend it for beginners.
Hey M! You're totally right about this deck being quite different. I wrote a blog post about this since it's been a question that keeps coming up. Things like the order of the cards, the use of reversals, the names of the cards are all very different within these 3 traditions. Lots of folks are really used to the Rider Waite Smith, which is just what is most common hereabouts in the English speaking world: https://labyrinthos.co/blogs/learn-tarot-with-labyrinthos-academy/tarot-deck-types-rider-waite-smith-vs-marseille-vs-thoth If you see any additional bugs not addressed by this post, feel free to send me an email and I can take a look!
This deck has quickly become my favorite. The cards are so beautifully designed, they feel nice and sturdy!
