The Guided Hand Tarot is a hand-collaged Tarot deck, created by artist and illustrator Irene Mudd. It was self-published through Kickstarter in March 2018, and has since been sold to tarot lovers from all over the world.This deck approaches the symbolism of the Tarot from a queered, feminist perspective. It blurs many of the rigid gender binaries present in traditional tarot decks by representing queer and sometimes androgynous figures in place of many "male" or "female" archetypes. The overall aesthetic of the deck is vibrant, colorful and tactile, as it was created by hand through a combination of collage, painting, and embroidery.
The name “Guided Hand” is inspired by the muse of the deck, abstract art visionary Hilma af Klint (who makes a cameo as the High Priestess in the deck), who believed herself to be a conduit for messages from the Divine, which she would record through her art. She believed that unseen forces were guiding her hand, and maintained that her paintings did not reflect her own ideas, but that of Spirit.
