Australian Animal Tarot

[Star] [6 of Wands] The Australian Animal Tarot combines the structure of a tarot deck with the special wisdom of mammals, birds, and other creatures of Australia. Ann Williams-Fitzgerald believes there is much we can learn by opening ourselves to the gifts these animals offer. In the center of each card is the animal's picture, name and associated esoteric symbols. In the border is the tarot name at the top with the number and corresponding crystal or stone at the bottom. To both sides are keyword meanings. The border color is purple with the major cards all having the same light shade. The artist is Tracy Hinschen. The Australian Animal Tarot is based on a different 48-card, non-tarot deck by Williams-Fitzgerald and artist Karen Osborn called Wisdom of the Australian Animals.
