One of the decks I bought during my New Year’s shopping spree is the Wolf Pack Tarot. Despite the name, it’s really more of an oracle deck than a tarot deck — it has the expected 78 cards but none of the typical major/minor arcana cards. It was created by psychic Robert Petro in 1995. The first version of the deck was black and white and featured 60 cards with artwork by Bruce Silkwood. The later 78-card colour version was apparently created in two runs, with the first run somewhat lighter in tone than the second. It features the artwork of Pat Morris. Both decks were published by Wind Spirit Productions, Inc., and were printed in Belgium.

The black and white deck includes a card with an excerpt from the book “The Donkey Man: Lessons on Prosperity” by Robert Petro and Therese Finch, a card describing the deck and the author, and a card explaining a 8-card spread. The colour deck includes a card describing the deck and author and a card explaining a 10-card spread.

(Italics denote cards that are different between the decks.)

I just googled for additional information and someone has made a calendar with some of the images. I don’t know if they have the permission of the designer or the artist — they refer to the latter as Pat Morrison, while the deck box itself says Pat Morris. The woman that I bought the decks from has created her own Web site for the decks but I’m a little disappointed by it as she provides precious little actual background information about the cards or their background.
