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.

Golden Thread Tarot Deck
I am so impressed by the energy, beauty, and quality of this deck! Interacting with it is a unique and joyful experience. I am returning to tarot reading after a long hiatus and this is the first deck I have purchased in years, but I feel like this deck and I have developed a strong relationship incredibly quickly.
I love the card face designs aesthetically and appreciate that they are similar enough to RWS that they jog my memory when I’m forgetting a card meaning, but are simple and minimalist enough to give a modern, clean feel.
The materials choices (plastic and gold foil) also feel modern and clean to me in a way that’s exceptionally pleasing, making the deck feel natural, comfortable, and frictionless to hold, shuffle, and select from.
This deck is truly unique, and working with it is a genuine pleasure.
I've seen your deck online so many times, and eventually had to cave and get one. This only the third deck that I've owned- I just began reading this year. I can't compliment you enough on your ability to really capture symbols to create an effortless read. My two other decks are great, but I always find it to be a little simpler to read with the Golden Thread. I generally have been tending to do a daily read with them after a quick morning meditation- so I really want to know how your designs have truly impacted my life and helped me begin a spiritual journey that's been a long time coming. I also have both the Labyrinths and Golden Thread apps that have been priceless tools in learning when I'm stuck.
Ok, enough gushing, here's my only minor criticism- the cards feel so fragile! I'm sure some people may love this, but I treasure them so much I fear I'm going to scratch them, and sometimes a little more difficult to grab a single card because they're so thin. Believe me, this hasn't stopped my use in the slightest. I'm still in love with them
This deck was shipped astoundingly quickly and is well made, beautiful, and a joy to use. I'm very, very happy, would definitely recommend!
They're simple yet expressive. Definitely a good buy.
I love how the cards feel in my hands , everything about this deck is awesome !! I connected with the cards as soon as I held them !! I'm in love !
I love this deck so much, its more than just a tarot deck, its a piece of art, something that i enjoy looking at just for the beauty of it. My purpose for the tarot deck is actually for gaming, but i do feel a connection to this deck and it has encouraged me to learn the tarot and to do readings. Thank you!
First off, the feel and finish of these cards is delicious. They handle and shuffle so smoothly. Truly a different experience than any deck I own, and I own several. They feel very fluid and it is a sensual, tactile experience when you shuffle them. As far as reading this deck, I find them very accessible and intuitive to read. The graphics are direct and to the point. The deck almost has a personality which is light hearted and at times actively amusing and cheeky. Thank you for an excellent deck.
I started out using just the app (which I love!), having stumbled across it by chance, and decided to get the physical deck as well. And am I glad I did! This is a gorgeously produced deck with top-notch design and packaging. The cards are made of quality flexi-plastic stock, and feel and look luxurious. And they are a pleasure to shuffle! The handling is so easy and the cards don't stick together. The minimalist/modern line illustrations are stamped in gold and reflect beautifully under light. This deck is one of a kind and makes for a nice collector's item too.
The cards are absolutely stunning! They are beautiful to look at and I have found myself countless amounts of times getting lost in the imagery of them. They shuffle so easily and I have had such accurate readings since I received them. I felt like I connected with them instantly, I have already recommended them to quite a few people and a couple bought a deck as soon as they saw my Instagram post about them! Very happy with them
I absolutely adore the Golden Thread Tarot Deck. It shuffles beautifully and a stunning deck to look at and read with!
I inherited six our so tarot decks from my father but they never felt like they were mine. I searched the internet for one that I felt really represented me and I finally found it. I absolutely love this deck, from the beautiful gold designs to the corresponding app, its just prefect for me. I could go and on about it but I will just say I am more than happy with my purchase.
I love the Golden Thread Tarot Cards! Seriously, these are the sexiest cards I have ever owned. I love the velvety feel under my fingers as I shuffle them. They feel luxurious and are easy for my petite hands to shuffle. Also they have a very positive vibe attached to them. I like the simple yet elegant design of the cards. The gold foil is stunning on the black card. These are my new favorite cards! And they feel intuitive to me! Thank you!
I will keep it short and sweet, bad before good:
-some people may not like the synthetic card construction or the simplified artwork. these are not an issue for me, especially when doing online readings.
-the backs of the cards make it very easy to tell if a card is inverted during a reading. i feel this is a simple, but necessary fix for more advanced readings
-incredibly durable; the advertised material for the cards make them lightweight, flexible and insusceptible to tearing which is crucial for Mages who travel a lot, such as myself.
-convenient, rugged storage box. this may seem insignificant, but most decks only come with a cardboard slip-box, which wears out, loses tabs, gets wet and dirty when on the caravans. this Box is very protective, and airtight too.
-design is amazing, the gold inlays arent tacky, and make the cars look refined.
-card faces are true to the original meanings of tarot and maintain all the essential imagery whilst remaining clean and easy to read.
while expensive, I highly recommend these cards whether you're doing readings or you're a collector, as they have an elegant design, and fit a lot of themes.
My cards offer me quick answers to my questions. While other decks with elaborate artwork may be beautiful, they sometimes distract from the meanings imprinted within them. The cards are made from plastic, so they are durable and easily shuffle. The flat black with golden writing make the cards both beautiful and mysterious.
Perfect in every way. I really connect with these cards.
Very well-designed deck that not only looks incredible, but is easy to read, both visually and symbolically. It also shuffles very well and the matte material of the cards feels incredibly pleasant to touch.
Can't wait to do a proper reading; so far they've certainly bolstered my inspiration.
I am in love with this deck. The minimalist design in gold is exactly my style and it feels wonderful in your hands. I have been wanting this style since I started and it's well worth the money.
I love the cards. They are gorgeous, and they read clearly. The only thing I could say, is that in images, they look thicker. They feel much thinner than I was expecting.
I discovered this gorgeous deck on my Pinterest page after starting a Tarot board. I was immediately drawn to the black and gold detailed graphic art, and after seeing how it had a companion app I was sold! What a great idea!
Previously I had bought my first Tarot deck, but wanting to educate myself first before diving in, I had waited on opening it. I took my time and read The Illustrated Book Of Tarot by Jane Lyle. After ordering the Golden Thread Tarot, I downloaded the app, and it was such a wonderful way to become acquainted with the cards before my actual deck arrived in the mail. ( which was very quick - maybe 5 business days ) By the time it arrived, I felt comfortable and truly excited to explore and delve into the world of Tarot.
Thank you for such a thoughtful and truly beautiful Tarot deck. I cherish it.
Gorgeous and playful deck tbqh
I fell in love with the look of this deck, but I wasn't quite sure how I'd feel about plastic cards. If that's holding you back, let me tell you, it's actually kind of exquisite! The cards are smooth and feel luscious in hand, not cheap at all. The gold is beautiful, and the illustrative choices have a sense of humor that really makes the deck special, even though it's very much based on the RWS.
The accompanying app is also great, especially for those who aren't especially versed in the RWS. The keywords and blurbs are short but informative, getting to the meat of the card without being too wordy about it.
In summary, this is a great deck for a beginner, but an experienced reader will find just as much to love in it!
OK, So I've been reading tarot for about 10 years. I love everything about it but I've been using my classic ol' RWS deck since the beginning. When I decided it was time to get new decks, I searched and searched for one I truly felt connected to, that was until I saw this one. The design was amazing, they looked cool and matched my style perfectly. But when they finally arrived. WOW, and I mean WOW. Everything about the deck was perfect. Size, feel, design, touch, material, smell, LOL. We clicked immediately and I smile every time I see my deck.
At first I wasn't sure about the app instead of a manual, but once I used it I got why it was the perfect companion for the deck. No tarot app works that way, but this one is enjoyable, useful and fun.
Thanks for all the effort put into this project, it clearly has paid off. Amazing work!
This deck is amazing! I ABSOLUTELY ADORE IT!!! The feel of it, is perfect for me and i love the fact that the cards are plastic so I dont have to worry about accidently spilling tea on them when I do a reading at 3 in the morning XD
But all in all this is an amazing deck, the app that you can get goes hand in hand and its very helpful if you’re still trying to learn or get back into the swing of tarot. This is beautiful work and it’s an honour to use such perfection.
This deck is so beautifully designed, and the quality is delicious. I think my only critique would be supplying a book with the card descriptions, but aside from that.. amazing work! Hoping all the best in tarot expansion.
I'll be honest, I fell in love with the deck the second I saw it in a tumblr post. I was dismayed that, until very recently that I was never able to find it again. I love the feel of the cards, how one is able to tell easily if a card is reversed or not during a reading, how well the minimalist designs work, and how much the colors gold and black bring the design and symbolism in each card.
Me and a friend have done a good deal of readings with the deck, to the point she wants to buy the deck for herself when funds allow. I myself own four tarot decks and this one is my favorite to use alongside the Hermetic deck. Each design is spot on, none of them are lacking, I'm particularly fond of the designs of (and in no particular order) The Moon, Ace of Cups, 8 of Pentacles, The Hermit, The Tower, Ace of Swords, Justice, Ten of Wands, 2 of Swords, The Sun, 6 of Cups (My friend finds the bunnies adorable), The World, and The Star.
Once again I'm really happy with the deck and I'm very happy you made it.
Absolutely love this deck. It's the first tarot deck I've ever owned, and honestly purchased just because of how beautiful it is. However I recently started using the app along with making spreads with the deck, and together it helps a beginner like me understand and interpret tarot. Highly recommend.
I felll in love with the designs of the golden thread while using the labyrinthos app, and knew they had to be my first physical deck. I was pleasently surprised by the material of the deck, which feels like a matte plastic, as it makes the cards more durable and really stand out. I love these!
This deck is only my second attempt at learning tarot and it has swiftly become my favorite and go-to for all my tarot practice. While the cards can be blunt sometimes, they are always accurate and easy to interpret thanks to the simplified yet elegant design. I would strongly recommend these cards for anyone who wants to start learning or get better at tarot and even for professionals who just want a clean design that is easy for querants to understand.
I fell in love with these card the first time I saw them. This deck is the most responsive I've had, and I'm so thrilled to have found it. The time and care put into it is clear in its design and aura. This shop is quirky and adorable, I highly recommend it.
The golden tarot cards are so stylish looking. I'm just a sucker for contrasting matte and gloss styles. The cards are also really sturdy plastic so it seems like they'll last a long time. The designs really convey the meanings of each card, at least for me and I'm an amateur!
First of all thank you sooo much for the super fast shipping. It took only 2 days to get here to Germany,only our tax office made the process taking long as It had to,but that's okay.
I am so in love with the tarot deck,the artwork and how it's looks and feels ist just amazing!
If you ever bring out another tarot deck similar to that style I would definitely purchase it again.
I'm thinking about getting another golden thread tarot for my moms birthday because she also loved the look of this beautiful deck.
Keep your awesome work going!
Sometimes I think it would be cool to have some kind of hard cover book especially for the golden thread tarot but since it's basically another form of the rider Waite I've been using for years it's not that necessary.
This is my first deck! The cards are absolutely beautiful and hold a very special energy. The recycled card stock is excellent as well and easy to handle. I'm so pleased and am diving right in to my training .
I simply adore this deck, the detail and its simplicity gives you more space to dig into your soul when reading. The companion app is awesome. I use it everyday. Thank You for designing these magical pieces!
Beautiful designs and finished product.
I love everything about this deck, including the beautiful box for traveling
- Moon Hermit
I love this deck. The design is lovely and the black and gold is visually awesome! I love the pictures, and find it easy to read the cards from the pictures/ visuals. BUT the shipping cost was way too much! I assumed it was coming from America or something as it was $30. I received it very quickly.. so it obviously didnt come from very far away... so it would have been much better to have a cheaper shipping price :(
The quality and energy from these cards are amazing!
I love that they're black and nicely designed.
They're extremely accurate also. I have many tarot decks but this one by far is my favorite!
This is the first new deck I've bought for myself in years and I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. The bold geometry and simple lines make for a gorgeous aesthetic, and the symbolism worked into each card is great for people (like myself) who have trouble keeping every card straight.
I was even more impressed with the cards when I got them. They're made of a high quality plastic instead of card stock, is super easy to keep clean and even easier to shuffle. Even the box they came in is lovely and sturdy and looks perfect on my alter with my other divination tools.
I adore these cards and cannot recommend them enough.
I had watched several online videos featuring this deck. It is just so breathetaking. From the design, to the material, to the feel. I can't stress enough how satisfying it is to shuffle this deck. It reads like a dream. Even for a beginner such as myself.
It has been hard to find decks that I connect with, sometimes the traditional imagery feels too foreign. This deck is wonderful because each card still tells the story but the images are more universal!
Initially I was unsure about the stock/plastic of the cards, but once I started shuffling and did a few readings with them, I loved the texture and weight of the cards!
I love this modern take on the tarot, great job Tina!!
Best tarot deck ever!!
These are by far the most beautiful cards I have ever seen! I even have one tattooed on myself and my husband, we drew the two of cups before our engagement. Thank you for designing such an outstanding deck!
Golden Thread Tarot Deck
I love the deck. It's silly smooth to the touch, the designs tell the story of the card and I love trying to understand the meaning before researching. As a newbie to tarot, my one complaint is that there's no description booklet and the app doesn't seem to have a feature to search for certain card meanings. The website is mostly helpful. It there has been a few cards that didn't show up on my search on labrynthos. Other than that, I highly recommend this deck!
I adore this deck! They are amazing in both form and function. They look exactly as they do in the pictures, so if you like how they appear there you will like them irl. Strangely, the thing I like best about them is something I didn't even consider when I purchased them.
I knew they were made from "eco-friendly plastic", but I didn't really think about it until they arrived. I wasn't sure about it at first, they do feel very different from any other deck I own. But now after spending a lot of time with them, it's my most favourite feature!
I love how I don't have to worry about damaging them when I use them. They'll never peel at the corners or tear, or warp if I spill something on them. I even shuffle them normally, like a pack of playing cards (something I never do with my other decks). Because of this, I find myself using them more than the others. It's always heartbreaking when you start to notice signs of wear on a beautiful (and expensive) decks, and it does make you want to use them less. But I feel these are so difficult to damage, I think you'd actually have to take scissors to them for them to tear. They are clearly made to last and to be frequently used. So if you want both a beautiful, and practical deck, I would definitely recommend them.
This is my first tarot deck and I'm so happy I chose this. It's even more beautiful than the pictures.
I love this deck - the art makes interpretation easy, and the gold foil lines are beautiful. The thing I love most about this deck is that it's plastic and very durable so I feel comfortable taking it with me, where I might not want to take my more fragile decks.
The deck is stunning, the artwork is really cool, easy to shuffle, love it and do recommend! Also love the entire presentation, the packaging is nice and it comes with a beautiful message inside.
Very beautiful cards but many of them were scraped. Thank you anyway for a very nice deck.
Golden Thread Tarot Deck
I spied your beautifully designed deck on Instagram and knew as a Graphic Designer this deck would resonate with me. Playing with the app for a week getting acquainted with the design of each card while waiting for the physical deck to arrive, I was not disappointed. My heart fluttered as I un-boxed the gold embossed cards. The design and feel of the cards are just beautiful. It's one of my favourite decks. You're truly gifted, thank you x
Every single card of this deck is a unique masterpiece. Sophisticated and elegant pictures, what a pleasure to contemplate it again and again! Thank you, Tina, for my very first Tarot Deck and amazing iOs app, that give me a daily doze of mindfulness and self-knowledge! Your project is really awesome, I wish you all the best with it.
This deck wasn't for me but for a friend and he absolutely loved it! He totally didn't expect to get this and he is quite happy with his gift
I am absolutely in love with The Golden Thread Tarot! The profound blackness of the cards is a captivating backdrop for the shimmering golden thread weaved through the 78 card images. The simplicity of the imagery has been a powerful tool to connect me with my intuition and not get overstimulated like overly designed decks. I also love the texture and weight of the cards. They are a breeze to shuffle. The Golden Threads Tarot is quickly becoming my go to deck!
This deck is absolutely beautiful. I love how simple the images are and how sturdy yet flexible the cards are. They're great to work with and shuffle well. They've quickly become a personal favorite of mine and are very much worth it.
Golden Thread Tarot Deck
I love the material of the cards, the art is stunning, and even the packaging are above and beyond in the best ways. I like the structure of the app, but would love to see more in the area of the background lessons for learning about tarot. Deeper discussion of the suits and the influences on the minor arcana would be particularly useful to someone like myself who is just beginning to venture into tarot.
Golden Thread Tarot Deck
This deck is absolutely beautiful. It has a very timeless feeling and the symbology on the cards is unique and very resonant.
I also purchased a deck as a gift for a friend of mine who has a deep study in tarot and she is also over the moon. Thank you
From the minute I laid eyes on the deck online, something strung with my senses. It's made with remarkable sensibility and craft; it goes without saying that it's a beautiful work of art. It's quickly entered into my artistic and tarotology practice.
I found this deck while looking for a replacement for my mothers deck, which I've been using for close to 20 years. I wanted something uniquely me with my own imprint, so to speak. These are perfect! They are simple and elegant and they are plastic so they won't bend or warp if they get wet (which is likely with a toddler running around). The apps are also awesome! I love being able to get a card of the day reading on the fly, then go to my deck when time allows and study the card for imagery/ energy. Thank you!
Rating this only 3/5 stars. I have no problems with the deck itself and love bonding with it; it has a personality that meshes well with my own. Even so, I am still very disappointed that upon arrival/when I unboxed my cards for the first time, I realized that several of the cards were severely scratched on the back and front. I'm not sure what caused this or if these occurred when they were manufactured, but it takes away from the experience.
