Tarot of the Orishas review by Bonnie Cehovet
I absolutely love this deck - the energy level is tremendous, the graphics have a soft, fairy tale quality to them. (Lovely pastel coloring.) The deal is - despite its name - this is not a Tarot deck! It is a wonderful oracle - just not a Tarot deck. :)
There are 25 cards that roughly correspond to the Major Arcana (see below) and 52 cards assigned to the four elements - 13 cards to each element. The 25 Major cards are unnumbered, and represent Orishas (Orixas/Orichas), which roughly translate to saints, supernatural beings or superhuman beings. They are the pure energy of the Divine - i.e. Yemaya is the Orixa of saltwater, of the sea, and would represent that force in nature.
