Despite the title, the White Witch Tarot has little, if anything, to do with contemporary Wicca. Instead, creator Maja D'Aoust -- who is a self-avowed white witch -- appears more interested in presenting viewers with a tool for psychological development (which, admittedly, is compatible with Wiccan tenets), and the accompanying booklet does not seek to tie the deck directly to Wicca in any way. As a further irony, there really isn't much "white" in the cards -- the images are gold etchings contrasted against solid black backgrounds. Quibbles with the deck's title aside, however, the concept is interesting: D'Aoust challenges us to interact with the cards in miniature "psychodramas", using them in a sort of ritual in order to process experiences and desires. While one could use the deck for more traditional readings, this does not appear to be the main focus of this majors-only deck.
