While much of the flowering of new Tarots since the 1960's has been the work of the Pluto in Leo generation, there have been contributions from more recent generations as well, and there are differences in the collective works of these generations, in my opinion.

To the best of my knowledge, the creators of these decks are members of the Pluto in Virgo generation (as am I), with birth years approximately 1957 to 1972. This also corresponds to the mundanely identified early wave of Generation X.

The exact dates are actually meaningful in the case of Brian Williams as he was born January 30, 1958 and thus was almost a member of the Pluto in Leo generation. Pluto was:

  • In Leo: June 14th 1939 to June 11th 1958 (with two brief brushes in Virgo from October 19th 1956 to January 15th 1957, and from August 19th 1957 to April 12th 1958)
  • In Virgo: June 11th 1958 to July 30th 1972 (with a brief brush into Libra from October 4th 1971 to April 16th 1972)
  • In Libra: July 30th 1971 to August 28th 1984
    Mara Aghem, Fey Tarot is a tarot creator from this generation.
