The Worldwide Bestselling Tarot Deck

Drawing on characters and stories from Greek mythology, The Mythic Tarot offers an imaginative and accessible approach to classic Tarot. Each suit depicts archetypal characters -- such as the heroic Odysseus, the Earth Mother Demeter, and Athena, the goddess of justice -- and every card tells a well-known mythical story. Rich with psychological insight, these mythical legends provide the wisdom and the insight we seek for personal growth.

In this beautifully designed kit you'll find:

  • An elegant, colorfully illustrated deck of cards
  • A reading guide, complete with information on how Tarot works, the meaning of each card, and how to conduct readings
  • A black silk cloth for use in readings, outlined with the classic Celtic cross spread

Appealing for both beginning and experienced Tarot readers, The Mythic Tarot will stimulate your curiosity and offer you an endless source of fresh insight and intuitive guidance.
