MINI DECK SPECS:
- DECK SIZE: 78 tarot cards (22 Majors and 56 Minors), a ‘Possibilities’ card and two, double-sided reference sheets. The deck is protected by two blank cards.
- CARD SIZE: 58mm x 99mm (roughly 2.28 x 3.89 inches) with white borders and rounded corners. The backs aren't reversible, but it doesn't mean that you can't read using reversals. We encourage you to use this deck in whatever way suits you best.
- CARDSTOCK: Eco-friendly, 350gsm, FSC accredited/carbon balanced paper with veggie inks (protected by matte, anti-scuff laminate)
- BOX: The cards are housed in a light brown, 350gsm tuck flap box (with an easy to open lid and a glued base); beautifully embossed in black veggie-based ink in a woodland design.
Since we want to keep Oak, Ash & Thorn as eco-friendly as possible, there's no physical guidebook that accompanies this Tarot deck, and there are no plans for one. Instead, we include two double-sided companion reference sheets featuring keywords that thoughtfully depict the nature of each card, allowing the deck to be read intuitively. An accompanying PDF guidebook will be emailed automatically upon purchase.
THE MAJOR ARCANA:
The Major Arcana showcase animals whose personality traits parallel the 22 individual universal archetypes represented in the Major Arcana of a classic Rider-Waite-Smith deck.
THE MINOR ARCANA:
The Minor Arcana are broken down by an animal representative of each element.
- The Cups (squirrels) represent feelings, emotions and relationships. They resemble a heart-centred spirit.
- The Pentacles (hares) represent the material world. They resemble a grounded and bountiful spirit.
- The Swords (ravens) represent intellect, thoughts, and state of mind. They resemble a logical and intelligent spirit.
- The Wands (foxes) represent creativity, inspiration and passion. They resemble a bold and adventurous spirit.
