Animalis Arcanum

Animalis Arcanum Tarot

This is Oephebia’s deck in progress. The meaning of the cards remains close to the esoteric tradition of the Tarot, whilst having their own powerful and mythical message and depiction, using animals and birds as messengers of the Tarot in addition to human’s figures.

Some of the cards have a powerful visual impact whilst others have a timeless quality due to the influence and association with mythology, folk tales and legends.

Poetry and the magic of nature are often present in the cards and the animals’ energies give an extra dimension to them.

The 22 major arcana are now finished and Oephebia has started (albeit at a sloth pace, whenever she has time from her busy schedule) the minor arcana.
