With a turn of the wheel and a spin of the cog, the oracular machinery lumbers into action. The curtains slowly draw back; the time has come to reveal your destiny.

Brilliantly brought to life by artist Aly Fell, The Steampunk Tarot deck offers a glimpse of the future through a lens to the past. Retooling the gears of the Rider-Waite tradition, each card's intricate artwork depicts a scintillating fusion of man and machine, nature and technology, science and alchemy, romance and fashion.

This is the mini pocket size deck.

78 cards

The deck can be divided into sub-decks. This makes learning the cards easier, because each sub-deck contains cards that have common characteristics. The first division of the deck is between the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana. Arcana is a lovely old word for "secrets". One part of the deck reveals the big, or major, secrets while the other part holds the small, or minor, secrets.

There are four suits of the tarot. Each of the suits is associated with different aspects of our lives. Wands are careers, projects, passions, and our will. Cups illustrate our emotions, experiences and relationships. Swords show us our challenges and our ways of thinking. Pentacles represents the physical aspects of life. Each suit has fourteen cards; ace through ten, a page, knight, queen and king.

The cards can be used in many ways; any one card can be used as a journaling prompt, as a focal point for meditation, or for a traditional tarot reading.
