This deck has been made from an original copy of the Author's Grandmother's cards. The Grandmother was a card reader in the 1930s at the seaside town of Fingal in Northern NSW. She read from the kiosk/post office that she ran. Card reading was for entertainment as "Fortune Telling" was illegal at the time. The deck came to the author when she found them in her mother's possessions after her death.
Through Historical published information, the history of the deck can be traced through more than 12 generations of the Author's family. The passing down of the cards has been through the female line and always to the most intuitive of the siblings.
This deck may be one of the oldest decks in the world. The original was created by Mother Shipton in the mid 1500's, a good 200 years before Le Normand cards and the Rider Waite Tarot...
It is said that The Old Crone who created the original cards was also an oracle.
The deck comes with 3 booklets.
Booklet 1 shows how to read the cards in the old way from the mid 1500s.
Booklets 2 & 3 shows how to read the cards in a more modern way where relationships are very different now.
Simple and easy to read, this deck is unique and very special.
