Originally written 28th of January 2017, on the Chinese New Year.
It is the Year of the Rooster in China.
The rooster is the tenth in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac sign. The Years of the Rooster include 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017 and 2029. The rooster is almost the epitome of fidelity and punctuality.
We’re excited to announce that we have finished the completion of an Oracle deck of cards that we’ve put together to be released in time for the Chinese New Year.
The Oracle deck has 50 cards in total, all with a unique message contained within. With messages taken from actual fortune cookies, we feel that these will be a great accompaniment to Tarot readings, perhaps used as clarification cards for clarifying the outcome card in readings.
The cards are Bridge size 2.25” x 3.5” (57mm x 89mm) and ships directly from our printer.
This is our first venture into the world of Oracle decks and has been a lot of fun illustrating the cards. Since the focus is solely on the fortune cookie, we originally planned for the background of each card to be a carbon copy repeated throughout the deck.
For the most part this is true, but there are a few little changes here and there with the menu!
I must admit that it’s a very different deck than any we’ve done before. it’s the first card deck we’ve ever produced that doesn’t have people or animals. The deck is now available on our site.
