Lookee! A uniquely South African tarot :D
The iTongo Tarot for Transformation is a 78 card deck with 144 page reference book, designed and self-published by Robyn-Anne Pollard, a counsellor and Coach. The deck is based on the myths and legends of South Africa, with images painted by Chantal Fielding.
The Majors depict “translations” of the cards – eg. a Sangoma, commonly known as a “witch doctor”, is shown as The Magician – or related concepts, eg. The Sun as “Ubuntu”. The Minors show the 4 major tribes or tribal groupings in South Africa: isiZulu, isiXhosa, SeTswana & SeSotho and the smaller Venda/Pedi/Nedebele.
You can see more cards at aeclectic tarot, as well as the official website. If you’d like to own a copy, it can be purchased directly on the iTongo website. Tarot Media Company is the US and Canadian distributor, selling it for ($70).
I am so torn over this! It’s more than I would pay for a tarot deck under normal circumstances and I know I won’t read with it, but it’s like a little piece of home…
