This is not merely an “Egyptian themed” deck, it is an authentic Egyptian Oracle, utilizing astrology as it was practiced in 2400 BC, with all Greek, Persian, and Hebrew influences stripped away. The foundation is the astrology practiced by the ancient “star priests” of Asyut for divination and evocation of the 36 unwavering stars known as "decans”. Each decan represents a specific star and deity. Renowned occultist and best-selling author Travis McHenry has sourced all images on these cards from ancient Egyptian artwork, including papyrus, pottery, and the walls of tombs. The background of each card contains a snippet of texts that the author gathered at the Pyramid of Teti in Saqqara. Each card includes historical details, meaning, and ritual uses. This oracle set is ideal for art lovers, those fascinated with ancient Egypt, tarot historians and collectors alike. This deck features gilded edges, an extensive guidebook, and an Eye of Horus charm, all in a sarcophagus-shaped box.
