A 33-card oracle deck based on codices containing the original Toltec wisdom tradition

• An interactive oracle and divination tool 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 Quetzalcoatl, or Tonalpohualli, The Toltec Oracle compiles the essence of the magical knowledge of the Toltec and provides a sacred mirror with which to see the hidden truths and potential of our souls in the context of 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 relates 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 readings accompany the cards.

“I love Victor’s integrity, his insight, and his depth. Using this oracle, I have learned more about Toltec spirituality and understood more about my own presence, as well as how to come into greater harmony with the whole--the holy circle of All My Relations.”

"In this work, Sanchez offers entertaining, enjoyable, and fascinating ways to begin exploring non-Western ways of thinking."

"Sanchez gives an overview of the Toltec spiritual principles such as dualism and interconnected fields of energy that their use is meant to incorporate."
The Midwest Book Review

"Victor Sanchez has provided us with the first authoritative account of the Toltec Wisdom tradition based on the actual codices. The text itself was direct and, for me, quite personal. I must say how completely impressed I am with the whole process!"
Philip Glass, composer

"If you have ever been fascinated by ancient cultures or if you want something that is set apart from the more common tarot or oracle decks, then this set is worth the look."
