About

The Oracle of Fantasy and Myth is a 55-card divination box set featuring the art of fantasy artist, Rob Carlos (who happens to be my husband).  You can view his artwork at his site, www.colorsmith.com.

This deck is something that I've wanted to put together for a few years.  The universe finally told me that now was the time.

This isn't your traditional Tarot deck.  It is an oracle deck.  It incorporates the elements, zodiac, and numerology elements - as well as a little dragon magic.  It has been designed so that anyone can pick it up and use it.  There are five suits of 11 cards (a master number in Numerology) each that can be broken down into the five elements listed or the suits: Dragon, Zodiac, Myth, Upper, and Lower.  It can also be used with just the Upper and Lower Suits (total of 22 cards, another master number) or Dragon, Zodiac, and Myth suits (total of 33 cards, the final master number).

The cards are over-sized at 3" x 5" - which is larger than your standard playing deck.  However, the deck is still small enough to be comfortable in your hands.  This was very important to me as I have extremely small hands for a woman! =D

In addition to the 55 cards, the box set also includes a companion book written by empath and intuitive reader, Jean Carlos (me - Ta Da!), and an organza bag to help keep your cards neat and tidy after opening.  All of this is packaged in a beautiful storage box.
