The self-published Maat Tarot by artist Julie Cuccia-Watts
is ordered to correspond with lunar cycles, seasonal festivals, and zodiac associations.
The word ‘Maat’ was chosen for its translation to justice (or truth), and because the goddess Maat was the wife of Thoth, the Egyptian god of magic.
Despite its' name the deck draws on many cultures, spiritualities and time periods throughout world history.

The Devil is a particularly confronting card because of its' female physicality: a woman with long dark hair is naked and giving birth, the baby’s head just visible with radiant white light streaming outwards.
It’s an image of sensuality, of earthly power, and utter control to a bodily or lower plane force.
