Cats in Space Tarot Handmade Small artist created Indie Deck, UNIQUE and fun
Cats in Space Tarot is a unique Tarot deck featuring 78 cards!!!
You can use Tarot cards however they suit you. Because Tarot is simply a tool, and as with all kinds of tools, how you use it is completely up to you. Tarot is perfect for self-development, making choices, manifesting goals, coaching others, planning a business, writing a book, meditating—you name it. Tarot is the storybook of our life, the mirror to our soul, and the key to our inner wisdom. The most powerful way to read the Tarot is to use the cards to access your intuition and your inner wisdom. You are already so powerful. You are already much wiser than you give yourself credit for! The imagery in the cards give you instant access to your subconscious mind and your intuition. And from this place of inner power and wisdom, you can discover how to make positive changes now so you can manifest your goals and your dreams in the future.
My name is Thea. I have always loved the night sky. I grew up just outside of Albuquerque far enough from the “Big City” to see most of the night sky, including the Milky Way. I got into tarot when I was a really young. I was instantly drawn to the pictures and colors. Growing up admiring painters like Vincent Van Gogh and Leonardo Da Vinci. I wanted to paint cards like the ones my mom had. And I did! I created the Painted Tarot, currently available on Etsy! But after successfully completing that kickstarter, I realized that I wanted something a little big more in depth in terms of Astrology and Astronomy. So I created the Cats in Space Tarot Deck! It features pictures from Nasa to inspire wonder and the cutest cats!
This Tarot Deck features the traditional card layout in any Rider Waite deck! It features all 78 cards. The suits are Mars ( wands ), Neptune ( cups ), Earth ( pentacles ), and Mercury ( Swords ). It comes with a detailed guidebook. Please send me your Email. Currently the Guidebook is digital. Those who backed the kickstarter will receive a hardcopy of the guidebook. The physical guidebook should be available in 2 weeks!
In this deck the suits are represented as planets. I chose these planets based on their elements but also based on the photos and knowledge that NASA has, so I chose close planets. There may be more suited planets in this universe but we don’t have great photos or knowledge yet about all the cosmos. So I picked things close to home. Easy way to read the cards is when you draw a suit card think of it in terms of the following:
• NEPTUNE Cups (element = water): Emotions, creativity, intuition, relationships
• EARTH Pentacles (element = earth): Material wealth, money, career, manifestation
• MERCURY Swords (element = air): Communication, truth, intellect, thoughts
• MARS Wands (element = fire): Inspiration, energy, enthusiasm
I wanted to create a Tarot deck using two things I love. Who doesn’t love Cats? Who isn’t fascinated by Space?? After months of study and lots of cat drawings, I decided to use real cat pictures and REAL NASA photos for this tarot deck. There are other cat decks out there. But none like this one. This deck sets you off to take a journey through space. Each card pictures real photos from NASA with information on real space phenomena. All my sources are cited but the main source all comes back to NASA.gov There is a plethora of FREE fascinating knowledge available for you. I hope with this will deck to inspire you to look to the stars in wonder. I also hope you saw “AWE” a lot because these cats are so stinkin’ cute!
Astronomy is the oldest science and some important insights about the universe were gained even before the invention of the telescope.
Astronomy is slightly different than a lab science like biology or chemistry because we can only observe space. We can go and get lab samples from a bunch of different planets and test the compounds in a lab. We have to use our technology abilities to study what we can see. We also have to apotheosis alot of what we want to test in Astronomy because it’s not testable. While Einstein can pontificate about notions, and years later we had the technology to prove some of his thought experiments. It is different than studying Chemistry because there isn’t the component of always being able to test things in the lab.
It’s harder for Astronomers to know if their assertions are 100% true. But over time with more data and more observations we can use comparable data to make sure we are completely sure. We know the earth is bigger than the moon, therefor we know the moon is smaller than the sun. That is a silly example but we can extrapolate more important things by making comparisons and putting more data together. Our technology has greatly improved, we can measure different types of waves, not just light waves to determine chemical composition of planets, which is really awesome. We can study waves and look at things really far away, things we can easily travel to and learn things about those places, and shine a brighter light, so to say, into the universe.
Ancient cultures built some impressive structures that incorporated astronomical functions and information. We have been looking at the sky since forever. The best example for me is Chaco Canyon, since that here in New Mexico. While some people could believe such structures were built by Aliens, a basic look into the history of the people that lived here would show you these people were much more capable despite lacking current technology, does not mean they weren’t intelligent or intuitive to the environment. without light pollution, the night sky is absolutely amazing. Of course watching the sky you start to find patterns. Chaco Canyon was a major settlement for 300 years while the Anasazi Chacoan villages reigned. Chaco specifically housed a lot of people most based on a single walled enclosure with hundreds of inter-linked rooms known as a great house, but it seems evident this was also a major location for vast trade networks, with a network of roads and outlying settlements that extended 100 miles to the south, west and north all the way to Aztec ruins to Farmington. I think it’s a disservice to the ingenuity and creativity of the human mind to assume aliens created these structures.

This is the Kickstarter for a Tarot Deck called Cats in Space. And you guessed it, it features CATS! and SPACE!
I wanted to create a Tarot deck using two things I love. Who doesn’t love Cats? Who isn’t fascinated by Space??

Backing this project means you will be helping create and get printed the Cats in Space Tarot Deck designed by Thea! Each card was uniquely designed and a special kitty was chosen to represent each card. The deck features all types of cats to win over every Cat lover. The deck also features REAL photos from NASA! It is not only adorable but also educational! I have used real science data from NASA to make connections with the messages in Tarot. This deck is great for any Cat lover, Space lover, or Tarot lover! Whether your new to Tarot or read Tarot professionally! You need this deck on your alter!
Cats in Space Tarot was born out of an idea I had about making Tarot more accessible and cuter. Tarot can be so serious and intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be! Tarot can be a ton of fun! I was trying to think what could make Tarot Cuter (obviously Cats) but what is also a unique spin on Tarot? I myself own several Moon Oracle decks but nothing like this deck exists! If you are new to tarot this is a great beginners deck! If you are a Tarot master this is the perfect deck for your collection! Also it’s really stinking cute!

More About this Project
I will be posting more photos of each of the backers rewards as the project unfolds! Specifically the Hoodie! The prototypes came out amazing! I also have lots of different stickers planned and will be sharing those as they come in. Prototypes have been ordered and I am so excited!
Once I reach my goal I will be able to order the decks and send them your way. The cost of printing the decks is so high that as a small business I cannot afford it but with your help I can! By paying me upfront with this kickstarter I am able to purchase the decks in bulk so I can afford to sell them to you at a lower price! Unfortunately the deck printing time takes about 1 to 2 months. And things may be delayed further by Covid. But I hope to get them to you by the very latest before Christmas! There should not be any delays in my timeline as long as you fill out the backer survey so I can get your hoodie size!!
The Decks are all finished and ready to order! All artwork is finished and we just need the capital to start printing! The prototype is amazing as you can see from the photos! Each Card is unique and adorable! I am so excited for this project, it excites me every time i look at it!
I am also printing a detailed guidebook. Creating this deck, I learned SO much about space and want to share everything . The Guidebook turned out way longer than I originally thought it would be, it is an in depth guide to not only learning tarot but also learning about space! Each deck will come with a printed guide! The guidebook is going through one more round of editing before being sent to printers. I wasn’t happy with the original prototype so I am going in a different direction, You will also get the guidebook as a Digital Copy with the purchase of a deck! But once the new prototype comes in, I will share pictures and videos!
Please contact me if you have any questions!
About the Creator
Who am i? I am Thea! I am founder of Black Cat Consulting LLC. I am an Artist, a Personal Trainer, and a full time Nerd. I love learning. I love a challenge and I love TAROT! I have successfully funded Painted Tarot on Kickstarter, and have that deck currently available for purchase on Etsy. My hope is to be able to cover the high printing costs with this Kickstarter and have Cats in Space also available for sale after this kickstarter. However, My main focus is selling Cats in Space here on Kickstarter so this might be the only way to get this Fun Unique Deck. If it is offered on Etsy it will be offered at a much higher price. So get it now!
I hope you will consider backing my project. I appreciate you taking the time to read this, Have a Puuurfect Day! <3 🙂
Risks and challenges
The hoodies are a big risk on this deck. Just because they are a huge cost investment that I haven’t been able to reduce. I have had to increase the price to ensure they are produced. I apologize for the higher price.
