“Nicki Scully and Linda Star Wolf are modern mystics who have gifted us with access to the deities of ancient Egypt whose archetypal force is expressed through this Anubis Oracle and card deck.

“Experiencing the archetypes of the alternate reality is a way to become a fully realized human being.

The Anubis Oracle offers many easy and fun ways to play with the spirits so they can gently guide you to greater wisdom. The spreads created by the authors open uncanny doors into the alternate reality, the mysterious world of the neteru.

Egyptian Magic is lost in the sands of time. Yet, some writings have been translated and the images endure. Its true, this is reconstruction mysticism with a "new age" slant. It is the Egypt I have always imagined. Indeed, it lasted 5000+ years. Most of these images survived and are just as universal today! This may be the closest thing to the origins of the tarot there is. A historic achievement, indeed.
The colors are bright and warm. Children can easily connect with the cards. The archetypes are potent and soothing. Perhaps this deck will open the doorway for a new generation to spend hours in the Egyptian wing at their local museum. Educational and empowering!
The cards in this oracle are difficult to handle due to their size, bigger than the standard sized tarot. They are bordered blue, numbered and named in white at the top with key words in white at the bottom, descriptive of each card.
Cards 0 to 21 relate very closely to the 22 cards of the Major Arcana in Tarot as follow:
0. The Dove - 0. The Fool
1. Nekbet-Mother-Mut - I. The Magician
2. Nephthys - II. The High Priestess
3. Isis - III. The Empress
4. Khnum - IV. The Emperor
5. Sphinx - V. The Hierophant
6. Sobek & Horus - VI. The Lovers
7. Sekhmet - VII The Chariot
8. Ma'at - VIII. Strength
9. Thoth - IX. The Hermit
10. Khepera - X. Wheel of Fortune
11. Bast - XI. Justice
12. Anubis - XII. The Hanged Man
13. Osiris - XIII. Death
14. Hathor - XIV. Temperance
15. Set - XV. The Devil
16. Wadjet - XVI. The Tower
17. Sothis - XVII. The Star
18. Khonsu - XVIII. The Moon
19. Amun-Ra - XIX. The Sun
20. Ptah - XX. Judgment
21. Nut and Geb - XXI. The World
Cards 22 to 25 relate to the four elements (fire, air, water and earth) representative on the suits of the Minor Arcana in Tarot. Cards I to VIII, labeled in roman numerals, are special combinations of the "Major Arcana".
Waldherr's Egyptian imagery is stunning in this deck, which make me feel slightly disappointed that the creators of this deck didn't go for a full 78 cards tarot deck, and instead the opted to create an "oracle" version. Still, this is an interesting deck which combines the Major Arcana from tarot with Egyptian mythology.
Beautiful pictures, well thought out layouts and explanations - these girls know their stuff and get it right.
If you want to make a connection with the Spirit of Ancient Egypt this will get you there
