Sibilla Oracle Cards

[Trap] [City House] Sibilla Oracle cards were a popular tool for divination in France in the 18th and 19th centuries. They are a regular deck of playing cards with the usual four suits, but they also show scenes from the daily life of the time. These and a short descriptive phrase illustrate each card's meaning. In this deck the playing card symbol is shown in the upper left corner. The meaning is given in four languages - Italian and French at the top and English and German at the bottom. Each of the 52 cards is numbered in the upper right corner. The Sibilla Oracle cards often have precise meanings - such as "Wedding" or "Trip to the Country" - which make them fun to explore for guidance in everyday affairs. The small 6-page instruction sheet describes how to use the cards.
