Step Through the Lua Portal, Where Wisdom & Wonder Meet
Lua is the Portuguese word for the moon, a lua. You may be familiar with its Spanish relative, la luna. The moon’s shades of gray and silvery luminescence are reflected throughout the deck’s work. As the cards took shape during my creation process, their dreamy & soft quality inspired the deck’s naming.
The Lua Tarot was created using stunning 19th-century engravings of extraordinary landscapes and portraits from around the world. With this work, Maree strived to excavate and seamlessly collage fragments of a bygone era, combining diverse portraiture with timeless landscapes to create an inspiring tool for modern practitioners of magic, ancestral healing, and inner work.
The Lua Tarot is a portal. Through it, one discovers a world lit with moonlight; a world awash in monochromatic tones and silvery grays. Beyond color, a union of black & white, and all of the shades in between. A dream world, a moon world.

Much of modern occult wisdom was passed down through the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, which scores of decks & books have drawn from. Maree's knowledge pulls from modern and classic Western occult sources. The Lua deck is largely based on the Rider Waite Smith (RWS) Tarot. Anyone with knowledge of RWS can easily work with the Lua Tarot.
