Who’s ready to embrace a little magic, mischief, and mayhem this Fall?
Just in time for Halloween and the release of Hocus Pocus 2 on Disney + (September 18th), Insight Editions has launched the Hocus Pocus Tarot Deck and Guidebook.
The use of Tarot decks, as a divination device, dates back to the late 14th century. Fortune tellers and laymen alike used highly illustrated cards to tell a person’s story or provide clues to their life’s path. Each card in a set was given a specific meaning or theme. When the cards were shuffled, drawn, and laid out next to each other they provided a message from another realm. Some believed they told of the future.
This deluxe tarot deck set includes 78 highly detailed and stylized cards for fun and Tarot reading. The cards are based on the original Hocus Pocus film and characters. Users should be prepared to be guided through the divine by their three favorite Hocus Pocus hags and a series of the film’s heroes. Below is a sampling of the cards.

For those new to tarot card reading, or just could use a refresher, this set comes with a 128 page detailed guide book. Authors Minerva Siegel and Tori Schafer use their vast Tarot card knowledge to write a truly exceptional Hocus Pocus themed experience. They gently lead the user by the hand down the path of this ancient type fortune telling in a fun and new way.
This beguiling set is really brought to life, however, by the beautiful imagery of Pacific Northwest Illustrator Drea D. Her renderings reek of high flying Disney fun. Card by card, image by image, the drawings lead one into the land of enchantment and nostalgia. No broomstick or flying vacuum cleaner needed.
The Hocus Pocus Tarot Deck and Guidebook is a devilishly delightful way to celebrate Halloween time and the long overdue return of Disney’s cult classic spooky comedy, Hocus Pocus 2.
