About the Artist and CVT

Back to Top


Ever since receiving her first Tarot deck at the age of 15, Jennifer wanted to create her own deck. Over the years, she has read and collected many different decks but until a few years ago, it never felt like the right time to begin a deck of her own. It was a daunting task--78 cards--and part of her feared she wouldn't be happy with what she created. When she finally decided to begin the deck, she wasn't satisfied with the first few paintings. Originally, she thought she would try and let the ideas flow, painting each image as they came to her. It was a nice thought, but not very practical for such a big project. She decided to change her course of action and tackle the project from a decisive point of view. She researched and planned out the majority of the deck, much like she would with any other illustration project, all before touching a paintbrush. It was hard at times, especially as many of the sketches called out to her to be painted, but in the end, there was peace of mind in knowing that she would be happy once the painting began. Through her process, Jennifer concentrated on painting each suit one at a time, for the most part, while working on some Majors in between. She found that concentrating on one suit at a time built a sort of momentum and helped her break through on a few of the card images that she had trouble visualizing. At present, the deck is complete and is published by U.S. Game Systems, Inc.

Jennifer Galasso is a fantasy artist and illustrator whose work is published as prints, greeting cards, collectible figurines, and many other gifts items, and sold in retail shops in the United States and throughout the world.

Deck Symbolism

Back to Top

The Crystal Visions Tarot is a traditional Tarot with much traditional symbolism, four suits in the Minor Arcana, Swords, Cups, Pentacles and Wands, and 22 Major Arcana. Jennifer plans on including a 79th card (blank card) for those situations not meant to be revealed.

The Suit of Swords represents the intellect, communication, conflict and resolution, action, change, force, power, oppression and ambition. The Suit of Swords represents the element of air and therefore corresponds to the astrological signs of Aquarius, Gemini and Libra. The symbols used in this suit are birds, in particular, ravens, butterflies, and winged and armored characters. The scene is stark and gray, with cloudy skies and snow-covered, rocky terrain. Through this, roses, both dangerous and beautiful, continue to grow, and daylight continues to break through, signifying a promise of hope to end conflict and strife. Most of the characters found in the suit are dark haired, dark eyed and winged. The Suit of Swords in this deck corresponds with the season of winter.

The Suit of Cups represents emotions, love, connections, the subconscious and relationships. The Suit of Cups represents the element of water and therefore corresponds to the astrological signs of Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. The symbols used in the cards of this suit are different phases of the moon, enchanted coves, water lilies, dragonflies, and water nymphs. The scene is dusk, with the sunset colored skies and Spanish moss turning an inlet into a romantic hideaway or a place to reveal your emotions and find spiritual growth. Most of the characters portrayed in this suit are water deities and nymphs, and are light haired and light eyed. The Suit of Cups in this deck corresponds with the season of spring.

The Suit of Pentacles represents money and material things, work, business, trade and prosperity. The Suit of Pentacles represents the element of earth and therefore corresponds to the astrological signs of Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo. The symbols used in the cards of this suit are earth spirits, dryads, lush and fruitful trees and plants, wildlife, crystals and gems. The scene is wooded and shady, where much of the greenery has set its roots deep into the earth, while other life has just begun to sprout. Many of the characters portrayed in this suit are earth spirits and are darker haired with light or dark eyes. The Suit of Pentacles in this deck corresponds with the season of autumn.

The Suit of Wands represents creativity, inspiration, artistic endeavors, primal energy, spirituality, determination, strength, intuition, ambition and courage. The Suit of Wands represents the element of fire and therefore corresponds to the astrological signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. The symbols used in the cards of this suit are candles, sprites, dragons, lions, unicorns, horses, crystal balls and snapdragons. The scene is stark and mountainous, with blazing skies burning with the power of inspiration and creativity. Many of the characters portrayed in this suit are auburn haired with light or dark eyes. The Suit of Wands in this deck corresponds with the season of summer or summer.

The credit MUST appear in close proximity to the image, NOT as a footer or a disclaimer at the bottom of the webpage or on another page all together.
  • Images must not be "hotlinked" to this site. If you plan to use images on your website according to the rules listed, you must download the image and then upload it to your own server.
