Welcome to the magical, colourful world of Cat Aura Tarot deck!
Created by a cat mom, experienced Tarot reader and Reiki Master, Cat Aura Tarot brings you to a gorgeous universe where these lovely little cats accompany you on your journey of inner healing. These curious, courageous and happy little cats have so many stories to share with you.
Cat Aura Tarot deck with guidebook is created by Malumir R. Logan. Art by E.C. Mazur.

Let’s visit these lovely little souls in this gorgeous, magical world!
In the Cat Aura Tarot deck, you will find our magical cats frolicking among ancient temple ruins, long abandoned by humans.
Each of the seven aura colours corresponds to one of the seven chakras in the seven-chakra system. Most of the Major Arcana cards have two aura colours on them! This means there is an important connection between two of your chakras, and it is a connection that’s worth exploring with the help of these wise cats.
Three of the Major Arcana cards have ALL seven aura colours on them, indicating key milestones on your journey through the Major Arcana. These three cards with all the chakras include the Fool, Wheel, and World cards.
Here are some of the Majors!
The Minor Arcana cards find our cats in four magical kingdoms:
- Wands: In these cards, we find our kitties exploring ancient grottos lit by streaming sunlight. These cards represent your spiritual and aspirational energy (how you are motivated, your values).
- Chalices: These cards find our lovely felines peering into pools of water, adventuring near gently flowing creeks or taking a respite on smooth stones by the lake. This suit represents your emotional energy (how you feel, includes all of your emotions!).
- Swords: In this suit, we find our cats basking below wide-open skies to represent the air element. These cards represent your mental energy (how you think, your mental cycles).
- Pentacles: These cards find our little cats in lush and leafy surroundings of meadows and sacred forests. This suit represents your tangible energy (how you give or receive tangible things. Tangible things are things you can touch and feel like money, belongings, your physical body, etc.).
In the Cat Aura Tarot, the Minor Arcana cards have ONE aura colour to represent the chakra correspondence of each.
Here are some of the Minors!
Each deck includes a 200-page Tarot-sized, perfect bound guidebook, complete with instructions, card meanings, spreads, and other ways to support your practice. Each card meaning in the guidebook includes:
- Which chakra(s) the card’s aura corresponds to.
- A clear message to you from the card.
- Key phrases that are grouped into “Vibrant” and “Suppressed” (which could be used as “Upright” and “Reversed” for those who use reversals, or simply as additional meanings to support your reading).
- The planetary/elemental energy associated with each card, based on the planet, sign, or element assigned to each Tarot card in the Western mystery tradition.
- Traditional key phrases so that beginners can build up Tarot knowledge.
Preorders help me estimate how many decks I need to order. I will be taking early-bird preorders from October 19 – November 23, 2023.
In late November 2023, I will send the files to the printer. The production and delivery time from the time I send the files to the printer, to the time I receive the decks’ shipment, is approximately 3 – 4 months.
Barring any unforeseen challenges, I expect to receive the decks in March or April 2024. I will ship the decks out as soon as I receive them from the printer, and they will be shipped out based on geographic location.
Orders coming in after November 23, 2023, will be shipped after the initial preorders.
I don’t expect any production issues with my incredible and very experienced Tarot printing company (people raved over the cardstock from Chakra Healing Tarot, and we’re using the same cardstock again!). Still, I will be sure to update folks on the status of production. Please ensure that you are receiving newsletter updates from my Acorn and Burdock email, and that they’re not heading to spam!
How to know if Cat Aura Tarot is right for you
Cat Lovers and Tarot Newbies: Even if you have never picked up a Tarot deck before in your life, that’s okay! This deck is beautiful, supportive and accessible.
The guidebook is comprehensive and will guide you every step of the way! You will be able to read these cards for yourself, and these wise little cats are so excited to support your journey.
Tarot Enthusiasts, Advanced Readers, and Professional Readers: This deck applies a chakra healing lens to your existing knowledge of the Tarot. This can enhance your readings with additional energetic body insights—a powerful complement to the archetypal wisdom of the Tarot. Of course, you can also use Cat Aura Tarot as your go-to deck for clients who love cats and are drawn to the magical art.
Note: Cat Aura Tarot has been created by humans. AI has not been used. Thank you for supporting small creators!
Reiki Practitioners, Coaches and Other Energy Workers: Created by a Reiki Master, this deck can help you identify the chakras your clients most need assistance with during a session. Pulling a card from this deck can help you pinpoint the relationships between chakra issues for your clients.
Cat Aura Tarot will also provide you with insights into the context and nature of the issue. These are all powerful insights that will help you provide even greater support and healing to your clients.
Supporting the Local Humane Society
Many folks who have followed me know that I adopted Goliath, this gorgeous, sweet soul, from my local Humane Society last year.
My local Humane Society was founded in 1884 to provide shelter and care for homeless animals and investigate cases of animal cruelty in town and surrounding communities. This shelter is:
- A non-profit charitable animal welfare organization.
- Supported solely by the community, receiving no government funding to assist with their mission.
- The only open shelter in the region, accepting every animal brought to them
- Committed to their mission and work with reputable and established rescue groups, province-wide.
- A last resort, providing haven from the hazards and cruelty of life on the street or neglect.
- An affiliate of the OSPCA, with the authority to investigate complaints of animal cruelty.
Currently, this same Humane Society is facing dire overcapacity. The Executive Director has shared that this animal shelter has been at record-breaking overcapacity for more than year.
“Our capacity is 144 animals and we’ve had no less than 230 animals in care,” said the Executive Director, referring to 2022. In August 2023, the numbers increased even more to 266 animals — 122 animals overcapacity.
Cats make up a significant majority of the animals in the shelter, and animals are staying longer in the shelter than they ever have been.
Between being overcapacity to try to help as many animals as possible, and inflation, the Humane Society is in serious need of support. Their annual expenses have increased by $200,000, just for the care of the animals.
I already support the Humane Society with a monthly donation, but I would really like to be able to offer some additional support to the important work these amazing folks are doing to help all these precious little souls.
So, for each copy of Cat Aura Tarot sold during preorders, I am going to make a donation of $2 per deck toward my local Humane Society. If we all pitch in, things can be better for all of these special little ones.
About the Creatrix
As a certified Reiki Master, I have worked with clients’ energy centres extensively. Through this experience and my own healing over the years, I have seen the importance of helping people connect with their bodies through greater awareness of their energetic bodies.
An experienced Tarot reader, my passion for the Tarot is a long-term, committed relationship! I firmly believe that the complexity and universality of the Tarot system and the archetypes it contains can help anyone find the insights they need.
I created my first Tarot deck, Chakra Healing Tarot, in 2019-20, and it was successfully funded on Kickstarter and fulfilled in 2021! Now, I am so excited to bring my great love for cats into the magical universe of energy healing in Cat Aura Tarot!
As an NLP Master Practitioner and public policy leader and instructor, I am passionate about helping people rediscover the inner power that has always been within them. Proudly mixed heritage, and neurodivergent living with less visible disabilities, I also love spending time in nature, and cuddling up with my Mainecoon cat Goliath and little Chihuahua Gabriel. Here are photos of these two lovely little souls!
About the Artist
Ella Mazur is a Toronto-based artist working in ink and colouring her works digitally to create vibrant dream worlds.
Her art is inspired by the magic all around her: the diversity of creatures and plants that inhabit our planet, the endless depths of the ocean waves, the enchantment of the forests, and the mysteries of the stars in the sky.
After Ella created the art for the Chakra Healing Tarot, I was so grateful that Ella was willing to take me on as a client again. A Tarot deck is such a significant project, and Ella has again created such stunning art that has brought my vision and written descriptions to life so magically.
Frequently asked questions
What is a preorder?
Preordering means that you won’t receive your order right away. Instead, you’re securing your order for a later date. Preorders help me to correctly estimate how many decks to have printed.
How much is Cat Aura Tarot?
From October 19 – November 23, 2023, each copy of Cat Aura Tarot deck with guidebook will be on special for $78CAD + shipping, and will include some fun little extras. Additionally, the first 50 people to place a preorder will receive an additional surprise that will be sent to you right away, as another way of thanking you for your support.
After November 23, each copy of Cat Aura Tarot deck with guidebook will increase to $87CAD + shipping. Orders placed from November 24 and onward will not include the early bird extras.
In celebration of the Cat Aura Tarot launch, I will also have a shop wide sale from October 19 – November 23, 2023, and everything else in the shop will be on special at 10% off. This discount will automatically appear at checkout, so no promo or coupon code will be necessary.
Important: If your order includes Cat Aura Tarot, we will ship everything together in the same package, which means you won’t receive it until March or April 2024. If an item is currently available and you wish to receive it sooner, please place a separate order for that item.
When do I pay for my preorder?
Preorders are charged at the time of ordering.
What if I order additional items with Cat Aura Tarot?
If you order additional items with Cat Aura Tarot, I will ship everything together in the same package. This means you will receive everything in that order at the same time in March/April 2024.
If another item is currently available and you wish to receive it sooner, please place a separate order for that item.
Was any generative AI used to create this deck?
No, absolutely no AI was used to create this deck. Just like with Chakra Healing Tarot, Cat Aura Tarot has been created by real, live humans over the course of about a year and a half.
If you’re curious to learn about the iterative process that E.C. Mazur and I used to create the art for both decks, you can read this blog post about the art creation process.
What is the timeline for shipping Cat Aura Tarot preorders?
- October 19 – November 23, 2023: Early bird preorders
- Estimated December 2023 – March 2024: Production and shipping from the printer to me
- Estimated March/April 2024: Shipping out preorders
How is postage calculated?
As postage rates have changed and vary from location to location, shipping is now set up to offer you live postage rates with our reliable shipping partners. You will see the live postage rates when you have added items to your cart.
Live postage rates means that the cost of your shipping will be calculated based on the weight, size and destination of your parcel, and you will be able to select from the shipping options provided to you. Please note that shipping rates include insurance, and only options with insurance will be provided.
Will you send me a tracking number?
You’ll receive an email with a tracking number soon after your order is shipped (estimated shipping in March or April 2024).
Are there additional customs/duties charges on my order?
Here are a few notes on shipping:
Customs/VAT: Your deck will be declared on the customs form as a “Tarot deck,” without exceptions. It is your responsibility before purchasing to confirm that your country permits Tarot decks’ import. If the package is seized by customs and not returned to either one of us, then regrettably, the order is non-refundable. If, however, customs returns the deck to me, to even out the burden of cost between us, I will issue you a refund for the cost of the deck only (no refund on postage fees).
It is your responsibility to be current on any customs fees or VAT taxes that may apply to you on your order. I am not liable for customs fees or VAT taxes that your country charges you, the importer, for purchasing overseas, nor am I responsible for any delays in delivery on account of customs. Please be aware that some countries do not permit the import of Tarot or playing cards, so please check to confirm that your country permits the import purchase of Tarot or playing cards. For customs purposes, I must declare the contents and full value of the package. I appreciate your understanding in this matter.
Timely pickup: While most shipments will go directly to your door, you may receive a notice to pick up your parcel from your local delivery or post office. If you receive a notice to pick up your parcel from your local delivery/post office, remember that you only have a limited time to pick up the parcel. If you don’t pick it up before that date, it will be shipped back to me (or, as experience has shown, it will more likely disappear into the ether and will be permanently lost!). I will not be responsible for replacing or refunding any missing orders because you did not pick up your parcel on time. If it is sent back to me, I will ship it out to you again, but you’ll be responsible for the cost of postage to reship.
Delivery date: The delivery date provided is my best approximation made in good faith but cannot be guaranteed due to factors that may be out of my control. You will be kept up to date on the deck’s progress during the production and delivery (to me from the printer) and shipping (from me to you) phases.
What if my mailing address changes?
You can contact me anytime before I dispatch preorders with your name, new address and phone number, and I’ll be happy to update your information. You will also receive some email reminders from me asking you to update your mailing address before I dispatch preorders, so please make sure your inbox is receiving regular emails from me, and reach out to me if you are not receiving emails from acornandburdock.ca.
When will I receive my preorder?
Cat Aura Tarot is estimated to ship in March or April 2024.
Please remember that shipping times are estimates and are not guaranteed. Experience has shown that some packages can take up to 35+ days to be delivered; however, the vast majority are delivered in a timely manner by our dependable shipping partners. While I aim to dispatch orders promptly, unfortunately, I cannot promise on-time delivery, and I cannot provide more information than what the tracking shows (if applicable).
