Ostara Tarot is as fresh and wild as the verdant springtime. The creation of four artists from the Pacific Northwest, the deck is a unique and surreal interpretation of the traditional Rider-Waite cards. In Ostara Tarot, the familiar scenes take fanciful forms, and the usual suspects are played by a wondrous array of divinities, people, animals, and mythical beings. Some cards show us unearthly visions of nature, others portray realms of purest whimsy. Each artist drew one suit and some of the Major Arcana. Each creator has endowed her suit with a distinctive yet complementary art style, giving us a playful, cohesive, and innovative masterpiece.

Excellent app!


I was initially drawn to the sample tarot app by the fool's dog, and discovered the magnificent artwork of Ostara tarot. As a tarot deck, I find it continually engaging and deep; I love that many of the cards meanings are revealed through the perspective of the animals in the picture, rather than the people. As a tarot card reading app, I'm not sure functionally what more could be expected. The interface is seamless and intuitive, with great options for exploring the deck. I absolutely love the conciseness of meanings through keywords with greater descriptions available. I have been extremely impressed, and the $4 was worth the artwork alone.

Beautiful deck!


I only wish I'd known about this physical deck while it was still available in its limited run!
I love Fool's Dog apps a lot, I use them several times a day, and this might be one of my faves, as someone still learning and absorbing the nuances.
It's nice that the app always allows reversals, HOWEVER, usually the Little White Book guides attached do not list reversals' meanings. (at least it's the case with the other Fool's Dog apps I have. Zombie, Steampunk, Housewives, etc)
So thanks Ostara for including reversed card entries in your digital LWB!

Beautiful and intuitive

Tonal eclipse

This deck is absolutely gorgeous. It is not simply a Rider knockoff. The imagery is fresh, new, and expressed beautifully. I have already preordered the physical deck. As always, Fools Dog is an incredible app series that brings ease to exploring new decks.
