Does anyone know what deck this is?

Yes - that's the one. I got it years ago; it was all over the place under various names. Mine is just called Royal. Odd back yours shows, though. very out of character. Mine has the same box as the ebay listing, but with the word Royal in the same font instead of the word Mystic ! IT's all over ebay now - and the Royal one  is mostly in Greek....

 

It's quite sweet, but I wouldn't pay a lot for it.

Thanks! Yeah the back doesn't seem to match fronts at all. Makes me wonder if it's a pirated deck...

There's a blog (I don't even know how I got there) that has posted a few cards from this deck and never says what deck. When I do a Google search on any of the images the only thing that comes up is the blog. It's got me curious, anyone know what it is?

 

(At first I thought the blogger wast the creator, but then they talked about not really jiving with some of the imagery, so that can't be it.)

It's the Forager's Daughter Tarot, a kickstarter deck by Jessica Lei Howard. Link below for your reference:

It is still available if you wish to know ! (I bought it - a first edition with the mistake and the extra corrected card ! - second will be out soon -  a couple of weeks ago.) I hadn't backed it as I avoid US KS decks because of UK customs - but I sourced a copy in Spain. Or maybe it was Portugal....

 

It's rather lovely.

I feel silly because that was my only guess and at some point it occurred to me to google it but my brain got scrambled. Thank you!

Oof, you've convinced me. I forget what turned me off about it the last time I looked into it but I watched a flip through and its looking pretty good. Order, but I'm not sure what "Your order has not been locked down yet." means, it makes me keep looking for some kind of "complete order" button but I don't see anything.

 

I seem to be heading into a deck-buying-spree...

Has anybody watched days 3 &4 of the wonderful Queen Auset's (Oya's Girl on YT) Kwanzaa Tarot challenge and can tell me what the name of the tarot deck is she uses for the spreads?

It's not hard to find... Gets a bad press, but it's quite nice really.


Everything to do with Miss Cleo gets bad press. It's a shame, really - it was the company that was ripping people off, Youree Dell Harris (Miss Cleo) was a hired actress with a SAG card. She was doing honest work. Shilling for a dishonest company, yes, but most of the population has to aid and abet corporations in order to make a living. And I enjoyed her ads, they made me laugh. ("An' he's BROKE? What you want HIM for?" 🤣)

 

 

Here's the instructional video that was included with the deck as a VHS tape back in the 90's:

I had no idea what to look for, tried an image search for "Egyptian Tarot" but the deck did not show up for me. Don't think that I would have been able to find it without your help.

There's something about this deck that I like.

 

Thank you for posting the videos @katrinka, love it!

I think there are quite a few people esp in the black US community who grew up with her on the TV.

And it appears to be back in print. I think a lot of people like it. 😉

Yes. There wasn't much diversity in Tarot before Miss Cleo came along. You couldn't find a deck or book by a Black person. Now we're seeing that, and they're from the generation that grew up seeing Miss Cleo. Maybe it's coincidence, but I think she ended up having a positive impact. 💖

Yeah. People used to take the piss out of the deck mercilessly on AT - and it is a perfectly nice deck. (Actually I might even use it this month !)

 

It's much nicer than a lot of those flavor-of-the-month decks they used to swoon over at AT. And perfectly readable. I hope you DO use it!

Okay, deck sleuths, I am at my wit's end to identify this deck. I *swear* I've seen this one before but the name is eluding me. It might? be one you can download and print yourself.

(This printing appears to be in Portuguese.) Any ideas? I tried Google Image Search on the Moon card (that being the easiest to identify) and got nothing. It appears to be a full deck.
