The major arcana of the Tarot of Cleopatra
are linked with 22 Ancient Egyptian divinities, and the court cards with 16 slightly inferior divinities. The four Aces are linked with the traditional seasons of the Egyptian calendar, plus the ascent of Sothis (the star Sirius) which appeared just before the annual flooding of the Nile river.
The 32 numbered suit cards have been matched with 32 doyens, which are celestial divinities associated with the Egyptian zodiacal calendar.
Images appear on a papyrus-like background, with frayed edges, for an authentic look.
