Cosmos Tarot and Oracle

This is an oldie but goodie, and I thought I’d share a walk-through of the deck now that collaborative tarot deck projects are gaining in popularity. I mean, like, every third deck launched on Kickstarter or through a crowd-funding campaign these days has been a collaborative deck. Which is very cool!

The Cosmos Tarot and Oracle is per the namesake– a two deck and book set, one deck being tarot and the other an astronomy-based oracle deck– that comes in a slim, handsome keepsake box.

A smartphone app is also forthcoming, so keep your eyes open for that.
