The Small Spells Tarot Deck is a culmination of the healing and artistic work that artist Rachel Howe has done for herself, and spread to her community, for the past five years. The card drawings and the writings in her book are filtered through her characteristic visual and written languages that are now recognizable - a voice that combines relatable honesty, humor and real talk with high vibrational energy and loving care. Her illustrations embrace mysticism while staying firmly rooted in the culture of modern design – drawing on the imagery of cartoons, tattoos, handmade illustrations and low-fi graphic design. The deck includes all 78 cards of the Major and Minor Arcana. The accompanying book contains reproductions of the drawings, with writing about the corresponding meanings from Rachel’s perspective, which pulls from tradition as well as her own investigations and intuitions.
- 78 card deck, 2.75 x 4.75 inches, in tuck box. Color
- 92 page guidebook, 5.5 x 8.5 inches. B&W
- Comes packaged together with custom wraparound printed label.

Small Spells, run by Rachel Howe, is a multi-dimensional brand, joining healing and the arts. Rachel provides inspiration and healing through private tarot readings and reiki sessions, as well as her regular astrology posts and channeled messages on her Instagram feed, @smallspells. Her work empowering others to find their way to healing also takes the form of teaching regular workshops on tarot and accessing intuition. Reaching a broad audience through her illustrations that embrace mysticism while staying firmly rooted in the culture of modern design – drawing on the imagery of cartoons, tattoos, handmade illustrations and low-fi graphic design, Rachel has found a voice that is both accessible and aspirational. Whether through energy work, a hand-poked tattoo, or a t-shirt, the aim is always to lift up those around her, to raise the level of communication and self-awareness, and to enable personal healing and growth to occur. The Small Spells Tarot Deck is a culmination of the healing and artistic work Rachel has done for herself, and spread to her community (in Brooklyn NY, and now relocated to Los Angeles), for the past five years.
