The Crystal Visions Tarot
is hand painted by fantasy artist Jennifer Galasso.
She was inspired by singer Stevie Nicks' Crystal Visions
album as well as her own interest in crystal balls.
It is a traditional tarot deck in most respects except for the fact it contains an extra card known as The Unknown Card
which represents situations that are not meant to be revealed quite yet and require further introspection by the seeker.
The symbols of the Suit of Wands are candles, sprites, dragons, lions, unicorns, horses, crystal balls and snapdragons.

The symbols used in the Suit of Cups are different phases of the moon, enchanted coves, water lilies, dragonflies, and water nymphs.
The spring time scenes take place at dusk, with the sunset colored skies and Spanish moss turning an inlet into a romantic hideaway or a place to reveal your emotions and find spiritual growth.

The symbols used in the Suit of Swords are birds, mostly ravens, plus butterflies, and winged and armored characters.

The symbols used in the Suit of Pentacles are earth spirits, dryads, lush and fruitful trees and plants, wildlife, crystals and gems.
The autumn scenes are wooded and shady, where much of the greenery has set its roots deep into the earth, while other life has just begun to sprout.
