The Luminous Void Tarot Deck
The Luminous Void deck is finally manifested, from years of painting, and a lifetime of practice. Sacred arts communities, invisible beings, and unseen forces have aligned to birth this unique deck.
The deck is 100% watercolor. I chose this medium for its combination of lush, ethereal, emotional color, and organic accident.
I was already painting when, as a small child, my maternal grandmother and aunt introduced me to the Tarot and psychic realms. I combined my artistic career with my healing practice at the San Francisco Art Institute while earning a bachelor’s degree, then went on to practice evolving forms of art and mystical practice in New York City, Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2014 I created, in my art studio, a dedicated Tarot reading room, and began seeing clients there. This led to the merging of my two passions into an all-encompassing art project.
Mainstream culture has a distorted picture of the Tarot, of flashing neon signs and shady ‘fortune telling'. My practice involves re-contextualizing this ancient art form as an ethical, emotionally intelligent healing practice, viewing the Tarot as a cycle of universal archetypes and symbols, which map human psychology and consciousness. Inspiration for the Luminous Void arose from Tibetan Buddhist concepts of Crazy Wisdom and the Rainbow Body, Trickster Medicine, and mystical Medieval manuscripts, as well as the modern art world.
The deck has rounded tops and bottoms resembling medieval playing cards from the 15th century, found at the Cloisters in NYC.

Laura Zuspan the creator of the Luminous void Tarot deck uses the Tarot an ancient book of wisdom to read and unlock the mental and spiritual pathways that will lead you to make clearer more objective decisions in your life. She help's create understanding into why you’ve been held in certain patterns and behaviors and guides you into positive change and empowerment. The Tarot is a visual map of consciousness and a symbolic system that offers insight into your professional contributions, personal motives/life path, and spiritual development. The Tarot operates primarily through the symbolic, non-rational aspects of consciousness, the same state in which dreams are communicated. Tarot is an expansive tool best used as an ongoing alternative therapy to help aid in empowering, clarifying and realigning ones life purpose and outlook. I am committed to healing; using this tool from a deep and ethical place. Tarot helps us dive deeper into the great mystery of life and uncover layers of patterning, stories and conditioning that are no longer serving growth or expansion. Please feel free to email or call Laura 310-736-0495 if you have any introductory questions. She looks forward to working with you!
