This is an interactive oracle and means of divination that functions as a sacred mirror for self-exploration and soul transformation. Based on the divination tool known to the ancients of Mesoamerica as the Cross of Quetzacoatl, or Tonalpohualli, The Toltec Oracle provides a mirror with which to see the hidden truths and potential of our souls. It gives us the deeply reflective space that allows the contours of the soul to be seen as it interacts with the governing principles of life. The deck consists of 20 Tonalpohualli cards, calendar signs that represent archetypal situations of life, and 13 Ruler cards, which depict the main deities and sacred principles of the Toltec tradition. Using original sources of Toltec literature, poems, paintings and philosophical texts, The Toltec Oracle gives the meaning of each card as it related to Toltec symbolism and metaphysical concepts, as well as how that meaning is affected by the placement of the card in one of the four quadrants in the principle layout spread corresponding to body, mind, emotions and spirit. More than 200 exercises and practices with practical applications for the reading accompany the cards.
The actual artwork on the cards is taken directly from original 16th century Toltec codices.
