Golden Thread Tarot Deck
Golden Thread Tarot: A Light in the Dark
Though originally starting out as an illustration project to help me create closer connections to each card, the project quickly evolved into a physical deck as well as a companion app.
The design of the deck was inspired by the concept of the night, and the archetype of a single string that connected all things within the universe, threading images in a murky unknown.
The Golden Thread Tarot App: Tarot for Wellness
The companion app is coded, designed and launched by yours truly. It's completely free, without ads and is only supported by purchases of the deck.
The app focuses on the philosophy of teaching tarot as a tool for introspection, tieing together an ancient tradition with a modern approach to wholistic wellness.
The app comes with the following features:
☽ Digital readings
☽ Guided readings with deck of your choice
☽ Database of tarot card meanings
☽ Log and save your readings
☽ Tarot lessons with foundational philosophy
☽ Mirror: using your logs, we analyze the data and give you patterns on yourself and your readings.

Although I have been curious about Tarot for a long time, I had never owned a deck, and never found a way of learning my way around the Arcana that resonated with me. After using the Golden Thread app for a week or so, I realized that doing daily readings and learning about Tarot was going to be an important part of my routine. The Golden Thread app was so cleverly designed that I really started to understand what I was reading, and the design of the cards spoke to my creative instincts. I knew I needed to support the work of Labyrinthos by purchasing a Golden Thread deck, which is my very first deck. Working with the physical cards that are so beautiful and feel and sound so good in conjunction with the app that is still guiding and teaching me, it’s a fantastic combination.
I started with the Labryinthos app as a new learner of tarot. I love how intuitive learning the card meanings is with the flash cards! The readings and explanations are easy to understand, and the Golden Thread deck was my go-to because of its simple, elegant style. I'm a person who learns best by doing, so I ordered the Golden Thread Tarot deck to be able to physically hold the cards as I learned them. It just seems so much more meaningful to me this way. I love the designs of the cards! The black and gold theme is stylish, professional, and clean to look at. They have a nice, sturdy feel and shuffle well. Although I'm new to learning to read tarot, I have multiple decks that I've collected through the years, starting with the basic Rider set. Style, simplicity, and elegance are what make the Golden Thread deck my favorite. Thanks, Labyrinthos!!!
From the moment I saw it on Tumblrs a few years ago, I’ve been in love with this set of tarot. I loved it so much, I recently bought I new deck for the road. So now I have my home tarot deck, and one that travels in my work bag with me everywhere. Cause you never know when you’ll need guidance! Now I don’t have to wait to get home for clarity.
The Golden Thread tarot deck is the most satisfying card deck to shuffle I believe ever, like, in the history of the world. 😂🤷🏾♀️ Something about the cards being made of thin, flexible plastic instead of just coated in plastic gives them a feeling of durability and a flexibility that makes them irresistible to shuffle. They feel luxurious and upper-level. My perfectionist side noticed there are some imperfections in the texture/surface of some of the cards that made me worry the foil might start to chip and come off, but so far it hasn't and I think the cards will probably still be beautiful even if it eventually does. The only other downside I can think of is that they don't photograph well. The camera can only see the foil from certain angles so it's hard to send a photo of a spread to a client. So instead, you have to pick up the cards and show them 1 by 1. The art is compelling and beautiful and fitting of the message of each card. In person, they're super impressive and the super satisfying sound they make when you shuffle them usually piques others' interest. So maybe make a disclaimer when you pull them out if you don't want anyone to touch your cards, they will definitely want to!!
I got this deck during an extremely challenging time in my life and I've been calling it "the hard truths" deck. The cards that show up in readings aren't always the ones you want, but definitely the ones you need to acknowledge your shadow side and harness your powers of transformation. In readings for myself and others, I've noticed that things I/they have been in denial about often come to the fore. This deck asks you to face the ways in which you may be getting in your own way so that you can take responsibility for yourself and generate the magic you need in your life. I've seen many positive changes in my life, internally and externally, since using this deck. I never really connected with the artwork on the Rider Waite Coleman Smith deck and I like that The Golden Thread is based on that system so I can still learn it while using a deck that is much more my style. I've gotten a lot of compliments on this deck and am excited to use it for years to come!
The golden thread deck has undoubtedly caught your eye online, believe me, it will do the same in your hands! The design is minimalist enough to allow room for interpretation and intuition in your readings, and the beautiful gold on matte black brings a shine to the little details that makes this deck worth the price. The delivery and service is above and beyond. Tina was incredibly helpful and had the fastest turnaround time ever with correcting an error I made in my delivery address. The dedication I saw from her in every single step of this process speaks to the passion she has for tarot. Tarot is meant to be shared, and I am incredibly grateful that you have decided to share your skill and love of this art with us all.
just got it a bit ago, already feel a great connection with the deck. very nice deck, very high quality, very intuitive to use.
I'm new to tarot and the Rider Waite doesn't really "speak" to me. This deck does, I love it so much and cant wait to become proficient in reading your deck
I have a few decks, but the artwork and feel of these cards have quickly made this my favorite deck!
I ordered this deck September 5th, 2019. It’s currently September 17th, 2019. I paid extra for the USPS priority mail (1-3 days) and it still hasn’t arrived. I looked at the Labyrinthos.co website to track my order and apparently it got to and has been sitting at Jacksonville since September 10th, 2019. I like in Gainesville, Florida (about 2 hour drive away from Jacksonville). I was super excited to start trying to use tarot cards since my boyfriend is Wiccan and really wanted me to try something new. Now, all my excitement has died, and he’s, of course, very upset as well. I assume it’s a lack of competence since I didn’t get a phone call, text, email, fax, whatever form of communication to let me know “hey, sorry, the package is coming a little late” or even refunding the extra shipping price (because obviously, 12 days is not 1-3 days). I can’t wait to screenshot and submit this review. I shall be posting it to Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and sharing it on my snapchat story. This negligence will not go unpunished and you guys have seriously disappointed me. I’ve gone far past anger and I’m now sitting at “wow, these guys really don’t know what they’re doing.”
I'm glad you reached out, and I'm sorry you're disappointed! I wish you had reached out sooner, it seems you’ve been monitoring the package for a long time, but only messaged us now. I could have messaged USPS on your behalf a while ago. We rely on our customers to check their tracking number, and message us when there are any issues, even if you think it’s silly. That’s what we’re here for! The faster you message us, the faster we can try and solve the problem for you. We can't monitor the status of every package at all times and we can't control what happens with USPS, even though I wish we could.
But rest assured, we'll make sure you get your deck! I let you know through email that I'll be working with USPS to either locate the package, or if the package is lost, reship you another one. Please stay tuned!
Edit: It looks like you didn't give us an apartment number and USPS considered it an invalid address. They are shipping it back to us. We reshipped this item to you after you gave us an apartment number via email. Can you please confirm you received it?
These cards are beautiful! I love the symbolism that is depicted in the cards; as someone who is new to tarot, the cards have excellent descriptive elements that help you remember the meanings of each card.
The cards are made of plastic, which makes them feel almost indestructible, while still being easy to shuffle and flip.
They came in a very pretty box, but perhaps an improvement that could be made is that the box have some kind of snap or tie for closure. I'd like to carry my cards with me in my purse, and while the box seals pretty tightly, I'm worried that this closure will loosen with time.
The Labyrinthos Academy app has also been very helpful; the tarot lessons are awesome, and they're helping me learn quickly! However, if you just wanted to use the brief guide that came with the cards, that would work too.
This is an all-around great set for someone who is new to tarot! I'm sure that even more experienced members of the community could be entranced by the beauty and utility of these cards.
These cards are so smooth and beautiful. Dropping to 4 stars because of the app. I wish the app had more details though - I often have to look up the card meanings on different websites because the details are very short in the app.
My Golden Thread tarot deck and I are still in the getting acquainted stage. I shuffle her everyday and she is like silk in my hands. Seriously, one of the nicest tarot decks I've ever owned, and will likely be the last one... it really is that nice. I also love the app that is helping me to re-learn tarot. Very pleased. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I recently purchased a Golden Thread tarot deck as a gift. I received excellent customer service, and the shipping was prompt. The deck was/is beautiful! Great quality, easy-to-handle cards. We were both very pleased with the purchase. I plan to purchase a couple more decks in the near future. Thank you for great service and a wonderful product.
I’m ordering another deck! Trying to get one of each! I really love that these are printed on plastic, they hold up so much better than any other cards and they feel really smooth too. Everything about these decks/company are great, the easy to interpret artwork, the app, customer service and creators. 10 out of 10 you guys are wonderful!
So I've been using this deck for a while and it's my absolute favorite! It's my go-to deck because of the design and quality. I personally really love the app and the option to use the deck with the app to perform readings and learn.
However, there are two small things that detract from my overall enjoyment and make me give this 4 stars instead of 5.
1: the back of the card makes it apparent whether the card is upright or reversed. If you're not including reversed cards in your readings, this is not a big deal, but if you are then it means you know ahead of time whether state of the card. For me, this can lead to me slightly changing how I shuffle, flip, and draw cards. I wish that the back had a design that didn't make this apparent.
2: The box is a beautiful touch and I love it! However, there is nothing keeping it from sliding open if you put it in a back. I kind of wish it included a drawstring bag, or had some sort of included elastic closure or something to keep it secure.
3: (and this is really an app issue, nothing with the deck) In the most recent Labyrinthos update, the reversals are no longer included in the lessons. I really miss this, as this was the part of tarot that I needed the most help learning. I can still use the physical reading companion and look up the meanings in the reference guide, but I wish it was included in the lessons still.
Overall, a great deck, even with these minor points.
I’ve never connected to a tarot deck as deep as I have this one. The entire deck and I are in touch on a very personal level and Tina’s designs are truly something! If you get anywhere close to where I have with this deck you will not regret your purchase or support.
I saw someone using this deck randomly online. Without knowing the name of the deck or the creator Tina, I managed to find it! Ha! Not only is the deck amazing, i love the app. Both are beautifully created and simplistic throughout. Tina's done an awesome job and taking the original tarot format and making it stand out among others. Black and Gold mesmerizes me lol. This is my favorite by far!
The art resonated with me when I saw it online. I used them in my larping group and got wonderfully insightful results. The fact that they are made of plastic makes it really helpful Incase they get a little dirty and need to be cleaned up. I’m super happy that I got them.
These are great! They look lovely and the feel of them is really nice. I love the simple design and the black and gold color scheme of them. I especially enjoy that since I use them on a dark surface in a somewhat darkened room, the cards themselves seem to disappear into the table and only leave behind the gold design reflecting the light. It gives it a really nice look when reading them.
The aesthetics of this deck is unmatched. I’ve enjoyed learning through the companion app. It’s been an exciting journey becoming more familiar with and learning with this deck. I was very anxious to receive it and once I finally did I was not disappointed. I will be ordering from here again!
I couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase of the Golden Thread Tarot. The application is awesome and the cards are beautiful and simplistic enough for a beginner but has enough depth for experts.
Customer service is over the top. I received an email on every step of the shipping and receiving process.
I look forward to a long relationship with my new deck and Labyrinthos.
Tina, You have indeed created a fine Tarot deck here. I had some problems with my address and you were right there to help get them to me. They came yesterday and they have made my week❣️
I used and enjoyed the digital deck for quite some time. This is my first REAL deck. It was a gift from my lovely BIG sister❤️. But I picked it out, and I am VERY HAPPY with them. I can’t wait to use them.
Thanks Tina, you are AMAZING 😉
This is a great introductory deck for those who are beginners at the tarot. I bought this deck because I resonated with the minimalist design and illustrations - they're fantastic at portraying the meaning and emotion of each of the cards, and were simple enough to allow me to attach my own interpretations. I've learned a lot and improved greatly using this deck! They are very easy to shuffle and stunning in person. My own criticism is that the gold foil has begun to scrape off on certain cards, but I'm sure that's just because I've been a bit rough with them, haha. I definitely recommend and can't wait to purchase more decks from Labyrinthos!
I absolutely love this tarot deck. I love the fact that they're made of recycled plastic and they have a beautiful matte finish and minimalistic design. I love the backs of the cards too which is probably my favorite thing about them. The only thing is that when I received my package I didn't get the little foldout with keywords in the box. The website said it comes with a keyword page. Otherwise, everything about this deck is magic to me and it has become my favorite deck
언젠가 한국의 어떤 사람들이 이 카드를 너무 구입하고 싶을 때 이 샵을 발견한다면, 그러나 해외 구매라서 불안하다면 일단 망설이지 마세요. 제품은 DHL로 배송하고 물품이 $45, 배송비가 $26.50 정도로 저는 $71.50 한화 8만 4천원 정도에 구매했습니다. 이 가격은 이 카드가 한 번 한국에 나왔을 때 8만원에 판매된 적이 있으니 가격은 괜찮은 것 같습니다. (구매 시기는 환율이 매우 높을 때라서!) 샵 자체에서 한국 직배송을 서비스 하기 때문에 배송대행지를 선택할 필요가 없고, 금요일 정오에 주문해 월요일 아침에 받았습니다. 주말에 이 카드는 미국에서 날아오고 있었어요! 마스터카드, 비자카드 등으로 결제하시면 됩니다. 주문 과정은 한국에서 인터넷 쇼핑으로 옷을 사는 과정과 똑같습니다! 카드는 아주 얇은 플라스틱 재질이고(오사카 주유패스 같은 재질) 종이보다는 습기에 대한 오염에 강하지만 확실히 종이보다 얇아서 저는 보호필름을 사용할 생각입니다. 금박 가루가 덜 털려서 남아있는데 저는 필름에 하나씩 넣을 때 마른 헝겊으로 닦아서 넣었어요. 너무 예뻐요. 간소화된 심볼 같은 디자인이라 초심자에겐 추천하지 않습니다. 제게는 두 번째 덱입니다. 너무너무 예쁘고 쉽게 구매했어요. 감사합니다.
When I first received these cards I was a little disappointed. I though they were just cheap cardboard/paper but didn't realize they're made of recycled plastic. They're very flexible and lightweight which makes them easy to shuffle- but they're still strong and substantial. The gold foil on each card is absolutely beautiful and after giving each card a wipe after first opening the deck, there isn't any extra flaking.
The artwork itself for the cards is simple and meaningful. There is a lot you can intuitively read from the artwork before reaching for the app or booklet. Even the simple expressions from the figures on the cards makes it easy to interpret!
I love that you can use both the app or the included booklet to read these cards. The booklet is very small and minimalist- only a few folding pages providing some keywords for each card. But is enough to get a general feel for a reading- the rest is up to your own intuition!
Overall, a very positive experience and I'm happy to start reading with these gorgeous cards!
I discovered this deck through the app, and found that it was really intuitive and easy to read. It's by far the deck that speaks to me the loudest. I like that they're slightly more narrow, like the size of a playing card. The plastic is awesome too, easy to shuffle and literally clean. The app is rad too, super helpful.
Other decks i have invite a lot of storytelling and introspection, "what if this card means x...." The Golden Thread Tarot deck, in sharp contrast, speaks very clearly. It is straightforward and refreshing. I adore this beautifully minimalistic deck and find the 3 card layout (situation - action - outcome) works best with it. So lovely to work with when you want a straightforward answer. Also - the companion app is super useful and convenient.
Out of the beautiful box, these cards wowed me instantaneously! I am in love!
The iconography is spectacular, current, and meaningful. I can see these being popular to use with my most playful clients. Immediately, it's evident that careful consideration was given to provide rich stories in every image. I am also loving the quality of the deck in-hand. Beautiful craftsmanship by the creator. Thank-you for sharing your vision. PS. Great packaging, and the guide is ultra-handy with its summarized meanings for each card. ♡
Absolutely beautiful deck, even more beautiful in hand! I've been eyeing these for at least 6 months. I'm very new with tarot and this is my first deck. Has been very easy with the book and app, easy to learn quickly. I was supposed to get these, and they confirmed it upon opening. thanks you for this beautiful deck!
I can't effectively express how well done everything is. The deck is gorgeous and feels great and every other one on the site seems to look amazing as well which I'll 100% be getting. The branding and design of the website looks fantastic and all of the information on the site all in one place is great as well. This is without even including the apps that help you learn tarot in such a concise way. Labyrinthos is such an incredibly well done expression of art and creativity with an evident and very admirable compassion for the craft. I'm new to tarot and I've been able to learn so much and I genuinely feel so welcomed into it all because of Labyrinthos. I really could not be more satisfied, 11/10. Amazing amazing amazing and every other synonymous word!
I've been reading and learning tarot for several years and I have a few dozen decks. This deck is easily one of my favorites. It's simple design keeps things straight to the point. There isn't an over abundance of artwork to have to read into and clarify with, and I like that. Sometimes you just need something straightforward. The cards are neat and a lovely design. They're light and thin, very easy to shuffle and they don't crease. I definitely recommend getting a deck of your own to see for yourself!
The Golden Thread deck is exceptional. Beautiful artistry but on plastic backing to keep the deck in good shape.
This deck is better than it looks online. They catch everyone's eye and they ask where I got them. I am SO SO SO HAPPY with this deck and I am tempted to purchase another just because they are SO freaking awesome!
I am loving this deck more and more. I have fairly small hands and some decks I literally haven't been able to work with because the cards are too long, thick, or stiff. This deck shuffles flawlessly on top of being a gorgeously produced and designed. Highly recommend. I've gotten several compliments on how lovely the cards are, and it has quickly become the deck I keep on me at all times.
Bought the Lenormand Deck earlier to compliment this deck. Both are wonderful to use in readings.
Golden Thread Tarot Deck
Thank you so much. This is my first tarot deck. I was never much interested in tarot until I saw your cards. The apps have also been very helpful for me to get my footing with it. I am astounded that you do this all be yourself. I love how you have created different cartoon characters to give the appearance of a whole school full of demons and wizards. Very impressed. Wish I had thought of it myself. Cheers to you,
I love they're design, simple but powerful. In love
Purchased as a Valentine's gift for someone special getting into ritual magic and he couldn't be happier with it. Good size, high-quality material, beautiful art, and it all came in an equally tasteful box.
They are nicely made other than the fact they are super thin/flimsy and don’t feel substantial in your hand. Would be nice if they were a bit larger as well.
Received these cards within a couple days of ordering, fast easy purchase and love the emails as well. The tarot cards are so beautiful I don’t even want to use them, they look like something that needs to be displayed. Simplistic, sleek, and just absolutely perfect in design! Highly recommend!
Read the reviews or don’t- just go with your gut and get these!! Bought the deck because I loved the simple design and fell in love with the app! It was everything I was looking for in a tarot app. I love the different spreads, it has helped me learn the craft much quicker! The cards are beautiful and sturdy, a little big for my very tiny hands but I can still shuffle them easy enough. Amazing that this is a one woman shoe, brava!!! Ugh I really cannot get enough of these.
The deck is beautiful! I've been using a couple of the Labyrinthos apps for a few months and it feels nice to finally have the cards in my hands. My only complaint is that because they are printed on plastic, they're very prone to static. Any time I do a reading, the deck is picking up fuzz from any surface I set it on. Aside from the static, I am happy with my purchase.
Cards are so beautiful, sturdy, easy to shuffle. Shipping was faster than expected, that's always amazing. Service was outstanding. Would absolutely order again from Labyrinthos Academy.
The best surprise about this deck, for me, was the size. I assumed they would be the size of standard playing cards and there's something satisfying about a deck you need your whole hand to hold. I first had an interest in tarot cards from my favorite video game "Dragon Age" (not the most practical example but hey, something got me started) and then I found the app that goes with this deck. It's all very well done and I can't imagine finding another alternative. The gold inlays are something I find difficult to look away from and that's to say nothing of the design of each card. I couldn't recommend this deck enough.
I went ahead and took a leap of faith, took the plunge, dove into the unknown, and ordered the Golden Thread Tarot Deck, along with the Golden Thread Lenormand Deck, and the Map of The Universe Altar Cloth-viscose version and I never regret making that decision. I am so happy I did order them and the outcome was that what I received was well beyond my expectations.
The cards shuffle beautifully. The gold ink over the black plastic cards really stand out and are very eye-catching. Although there's no other "colour" in the cards other than gold, you don't go blank in a reading, for its image sort of "jumps out" and you get the message.
There are 7 cards that draw my attention because the lines go beyond the determined borders: the magician, the hanged man, the king of cups, the queen of cups, the knight of cups, the tower, and the temperance card. Also the world card is another eye-catching card having the 4 elements at the corners in supposed of the more traditional figures in other tarot decks. If you want to have a sense of what these beautiful cards look like, you can visit the Labyrinthos page card meanings for the 78 cards by suits, element, and zodiac.
I highly recommend this deck to newbies and experienced tarot readers. You won't regret your purchase and be glad you did.
The cards are gorgeous and the companion app is a very helpful tool, especially when getting started with tarot. I came across your site when I was looking up beginner tarot questions online and had an immediate connection with the cards. The site, app, and deck all appear to have been created with the same level of care and attention to detail.
After I received the cards, the customer service was quick and accessible. I'm so surprised that this is a one-person company, I still don't quite believe it. Thanks for all you've made and for sharing it all.
This is a fantastic deck! Easy to handle and shuffle. The designs truly are like nothing I've seen before, and I mean that in a good way. Very unique and give off a classy, almost Egyptian vibe in a way? That was my first take. But they are well made and well designed. Truly a one of a kind deck. I love them
These are really stunning cards. Some reviewers have said that the stock is thin, but I think they are still very sturdy and their thinness adds to the elegance of these cards. They feel so good in the hands and shine beautifully by candlelight. The box is just as gorgeous as the deck and I always feel very quiet and centered when I read with them. The app has been a favorite for a long time and a prime resource in re-introducing me to Tarot. Thank you so much for this stunning deck.
I just got my Golden Thread deck today. There was some delay between UPS and USPS tracking status, but Tina responded quickly to my email and in no time it was tracked and delivered. It was perfectly packaged, and the deck itself looks and feels amazing. The gold detail is flawless and it feels right for me. I can tell I'm going to be using it a lot
I absolutely love the deck,plus is before I review my deck I took the course to have better understanding of the deck which was huge help.since I'm newbie I needed her training course to really appreciate the deck. I give triple AAA RATING QUALITY AND DESIGN AND CUSTOMER SERVICE
I've had the Golden Thread app for a while, and I love the app's functionality and simplicity. It deserves 5 stars... 5 suns... and 5 world cards :P.
I finally purchased the deck as a Christmas gift to myself... and I found that any digital version of the deck does not give justice to its beauty. I just love the way it feels on my hand... and the shuffling is just heaven. It's very easy to connect to the deck and I find it very easily sponges up energies. It's an extremely effective intuiting tool. The simplicity of it's aesthetic adds to its charm. It's very modern, minimalist, but still retains the RWS feel to it. I just love and adore it.
I am definitely getting the Golden Thread Lenormand and Map of the Universe Altar Cloth on my birthday.
Kudos to Tina for a very beautiful art work. I send love and light her way and I hope she gets wish-fulfillment throughout her life.
These cards have an incredibly attractive design—the black and gold sing together. The designs are simple yet expressive, and so far I've done well intuiting the stories the deck has presented to me. The plastic cards are super flexible and the shuffles are buttery smooth, while the metallic ink reflects ambient light and shimmers under firelight. There is certainly a magic imbued into these cards, and over the last month of playing and doing readings I've found my deck has quite the personality.
The companion apps are as amazing and lovingly crafted as the deck, and they've been a great tool to help log and analyze my own subconscious projections. Well done Tina, you've created something truly beautiful and shared it with the world. You are an inspiration. Mahalo!
My witch girlfriend is too lazy to review her "best Christmas gift" so here I am. I don't understand them but they look cool as shit, 5 stars
