NOTE: I made an error in the accompanying booklet: in the table of contents I accidentally switched the headers WANDS and RINGS. (These two words are the only error I know of.) I’m sorry for the confusion. Please use white-out to fix my mistake. – Ranger Mickey
What to gift on the playa in 2015?
The tradition of gifting “Ranger Love” swag isn’t new, and we’re really excited about what we’re been able to put together for all of us to be able to gift on-playa next year:
The Ranger Love Tarot
- A complete 78-card tarot deck, with the major and minor arcana illustrated with playa moments, printed on premium quality card stock, in the traditional tarot size of 2.75″ x 4.75″. (To see a BIG version click on either the early samples – above – or the finals – at the bottom of this page.)
- Explanations of the traditional meanings of the cards, suggestions for readings.
- Credit to the most awesome and generous photographers who shared their beautiful work so we can show off the beauty of the playa & our beloved city: Barbie Paulsen, Flint Hahn, Ian Norman, Jcomeau Ictx, John Tupper, Michael Holden, Mike Alberghini, I Must Be Dead, Jason Johnson, Ranger Belmont, Peretz Partensky, Rick Willett, Trey Ratcliff, Don Landis, and Tripod.

My answer is this video:
This tarot is perfect for gifting to anyone in love with the playa. Just sayin’. They’ll know you didn’t pick this up last-minute in Reno.
As with previous Ranger Love swag projects (like the carabiner-flashlight, the gaming dice, etc.) The Ranger Love Tarot is made for gifting.
A brief history of tarot on the playa
In 2003 Burning Man-related tarots were created by two camps. Here’s the theme camp member tarot deck by Fuego Diego:
and Tribal Penis Gourd.
If you know of other Burning Man-related tarot, please let us know!
The Ranger Love Tarot project history
Early Autumn 2014 ~ Several excellent photographers have replied enthusiastically and have provided artwork. We’re going through the photos of our beautiful event; we’ll have wonderful things to show you!
Late Autumn 2014 ~ A collaborative effort of volunteers are working on completing the artwork and tarot card layout. We aim to have the tarot finished in early 2015.
We’ve worked through several designs, many fonts, and more colors than we knew existed. Things are looking very shiny and pretty.
Winter 2015 ~ The tarot is finished! Well, almost finished. We keep tweaking things. See the gallery of proof card images; this thumbnail goes to a BIG-PICTURE:
We are so excited to have worked through this project. It’ll be such a pleasure handing these out on-playa.
THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT THROUGHOUT!!!
