Oracle of the Radiant Sun
The Oracle of the Radiant Sun is another deck from husband-and-wife team Caroline Smith and John Astrop, who also created the Runic Tarot, Elemental Tarot and Moon Oracle. The 84 cards are based on solar astrology, and are divided into seven suits with old-fashioned and often surreal illustrations.

Oracle of the Radiant Sun review by Chloe McCracken
This very nicely boxed set comes with 84 cards and a 144-page book. Unlike this partnership's other decks, the Moon Oracle, the Runic Tarot (which isn't actually a tarot, but an oracle) and the Elemental Tarot, the images here have a real Victoriana feel to them. The cards are relatively small at 10cm by 6,5cm (4 by 2 1/2 inches), which is a good thing in terms of shuffling, especially as there are 6 more cards than in a tarot deck. The card stock is sturdy and laminated, and the backs are non-reversible, done in a pale beige with a sun face in white.
