The Santos and Signs—Holy Intermediaries for Sacred Journeys are modern holy cards for all your pilgrimages of the soul. Whether your quests are within or without, these portable icons offer both earthly and transcendent messages for navigating a life of devotion in motion.

The imagery in Santos and Signs is a mix-tape, mash-up of religious iconography from Catholic cemeteries and roadside shrines, combined with the symbolic directives of disintegrating highway advertisements.

It is an intuitive cross-training tool, with the guidance revealed through the communion of saints as your own personal divine intercessors; amulets of protection in pocket-sized packaging.

These are hardworking, dedicated Santos who are there to offer solace and support as you gather all of the fragments of your soul, embracing your clay footed divinity. Put them to work, guiding all of your leaps of faith into the unknown of your true destinies.

The deck is 104 pocket-sized cards (2.5” x 3.5”) for traveling pilgrimages, and there are three main components to the deck. The first is the Santos, your 72 otherworldly divine intercessors guiding your sacred quests from an ascended viewpoint. The second aspect is the graffiti-strewn highway billboards that are contemporary oracles with mystical instructions hidden in their beautifully deteriorating graphics.

The final element is the 32 single word devotional concepts (1.75” x 2.5”) that suggest either the perspectives or actions for best embracing the current phases of your journey. Each set will have a magical little medal and elemental items. It comes packaged in a wonderful Virgin Mary organic cotton pouch. The backs of the two Santos and the Madonnas and Virgens decks are all the same to mix and match.



How to use the cards: these Santos and Madonnas cards are to be read totally intuitively by the diviner, making unique relationships with the Spirits on the cards. I do suggest writing down your initial impression of each card immediately; those hits are ephemeral and usually very important. Also, look at everything on the card, from the colors to the symbols to the beings or signage, and let your unique oracular languages decipher the messages. Off-the-wall things can also have some major accuracy; these cards have the ability to give readings other cards do not from the range of images on them. Using other cards with them is also recommended, and Theresa Pridemore’s Sovereign Oracle is a great match. And of course, you can always just ask them to speak with you. Blessing on your journeys with these otherworldly emissaries. ML



NOTE: There is an Oracle of Initiation card (15. Discovery) in the center of the second photo. That deck is sold separately. Those three montage photos of the deck were graciously taken by Nina of Shuffle Tarot (Instagram and YouTube).

Mellissae's customer service is the best I've experienced on Etsy yet. This deck is beautiful and came thoughtfully packaged with some goodies including a small crystal and sample cards from the next(!) installation of Santos and Signs. I'm so excited to have this one in my collection. Thank you!

A rather unusual deck! I am having fun experimenting with different combinations: here I added cards from Divine Doors and Kamienie Wroza.
