The major arcana cards feature a fundamental scientific concept, like extinction, diversity or gravity. The 56 minor arcana cards feature inspirational women who have changed the course of STEM. We're proud to be creating a feminist tarot deck that values diversity and representation.
Is this science? No, it's a game! The Women of Science Tarot Deck is a game of cards for telling stories: stories about our lives, stories about our universe, and stories about our future. We’ve updated our tarot to reflect our scientific, 21st century curiosity about how the world works. It's a modern, feminist tarot deck that anyone can enjoy.

We don't think creativity, storytelling, magical thinking and scientific thinking are totally disparate subjects. Here's a longer answer, by the illustrator himself.
