Mermaid fortune telling -- mermaid divination decks
For those who can't get enough mer-tails in their daily lives, here is a list of divination decks featuring mermaids to add to your deck collection.

The mermaid trend has been riding high for years. There are plenty of mermaid decks with consist entirely of mermaid themed cards, and also decks with individual Tarot cards and other oracle cards which feature mermaids.

These items can be difficult to find since many are out of print. Some great places to buy these things online include:

Full Tarot and oracle decks

Note: None of these full decks are recommended unless you just want a deck featuring mermaids.

The art in general is not very good (most of them have too much Poser in their ancestry), the cardstock is flimsy, and the images lack the underlying symbolism expected in a readable deck. There is, to be blunt, a lot of "fluff" going on rather than the proper symbolism expected from a Tarot deck, or even an oracle.
