Guidance & Inspiration From the Angelic Realm

The first oracle deck I have ever created, is finally complete! I am happy to announce that ~

Guidance & Inspiration From the Angelic Realm

is now open for pre-order!

archway

Channeled from Archangel Michael, Archangel Raphael, and David Bowie, Guidance & Inspiration From the Angelic Realm is intended to provide you with not only spiritual guidance, but concentrating on the channeled phrases on the cards helps you to connect with your angels & spirit guides.

For the story of how this oracle deck came to be, please visit my deck’s blog.

The deck is all hand-created. I hand-painted the watercolor gouache backgrounds in color combinations I was shown so the colors associated with each phrase are also channeled. I created the font by hand and each phrase is handwritten, not computer-generated. Each original image was attuned to Reiki up to the master degree and also attuned to the * Clear Iridescent Energy Ray (* CIER) that is  a new healing modality Archangel Michael is introducing to us at this time.

Please note that this is a self-published deck. As such it will have a limited print-run. I cannot guarantee how long copies will be available & please understand I am unable to hold copies in reserve.

Your deck arrives:

The Avalonian Oracle

avalonian-oracle-boxHow I absolutely love the stories of King Arthur, his knights of the round table, & the gods, goddesses, & magical beings associated with those stories. I have been to England & climbed to the top of Glastonbury Tor, which I still consider to be one of the highlights of my life. I was understandably excited when I heard news of The Avalonian Oracle being published by Schiffer Books. The complete title of this deck is, The Avalonian Oracle: Spiritual Wisdom From the Holy Isle. The 128-page paperback guidebook is written by Jhenah Telyndru with artwork by Emily Brunner. The deck comes housed in the 6 x 9 x 1 1/2″ hinge-lidded magnetic closure box that is pretty much standard now for Schiffer decks. The deck can be stored on its end so the footprint in a bookshelf is very small.

The Avalonian Oracle is a 46-card oracle deck with a twist. There are seven “suits,” avalonian-oracle-2which are referred to as “Cycles.” The guidebook is organized so that the cards belonging to each cycle are discussed in each chapter, which results in the guidebook containing seven chapters of card meanings and interpretations. The other two chapters consist of an introduction and the guidebook concludes with a chapter devoted to eight card spreads and a few concluding paragraphs with suggestions as to how to use the cards as a magical tool.

The introduction in most guidebooks is basically a “how to use this deck” chapter, but that is not the case for The Avalonian Oracle. The chapter is important and should not be glossed over in order to get to the meat of the book. The introduction lists the names of the cards in each “cycle” and by their titles and brief explanation of the “cycle” this gives you a good overview of the overall feel and vibration for each cycle of the deck. The introduction is also an excellent reference point to use as you do readings with the deck. The cycles are not indicated on the cards, but you can easily discover to which cycle they belong if you refer to the introductory pages. That will then tell you in which chapter you can find each card’s meaning.

The cards themselves build upon the concept of the spiritual journey and include such avalonian-oracle-1beings one would expect to encounter when taking a spiritual journey that is of a Celtic nature. Cycle One (5 cards, referred to as Seeds) focuses on your journey to Avalon and the various stages that comprise that part of your journey. Cycle Two (5 cards, referred to as Stations) is about the stages of healing we encounter. Cycle Three (5 cards) depict the goddesses you may encounter on your journey (Rhiannon, Ceridwen, Blodeuwedd, Arianrhod, & Branwen). Cycle Four includes a card for each moon of the year (13 cards for 13 lunar cycles) . Cycle Five (9 cards) is entitled the Nine Morgens who are important ancestresses. Cycle Six (3 cards) represent the 3 realms of the universe as the Celts saw them. Cycle Seven (6 cards) represent the forces that make up the Avalonian cosmology. When doing a reading it is important to note from which cycle your cards originate because knowing that will add a deeper meaning to your readings.

The information included for each card varies from Cycle to Cycle. For example, the cards of Cycles 1 – 3 include with their card interpretations a card description, keywords, quest, divinatory meaning, and affirmation. This same information is included for the cards of Cycle 4 (the 13 Moons of Avalon), but a brief explanation of the particular herb associated with each of these cards opens the card interpretations. The final card of the deck, The Silver Wheel, includes an herbal association as well as a brief discussion of the mythology of the Silver Wheel. Otherwise, all other cards follow the descriptive outline of card description, keywords, quest, divinatory meaning, and affirmation.

The cards measure 3 3/8″ x 5 1/4″. They are well laminated with a glossy finish. Card avalonian-oracle-3backs are completely reversible although the guidebook does not provide reversed card meanings. The cards are are of sturdy, yet flexible card stock that makes them easy to shuffle. They have a blue border with silver detailing. The herb, plant, animal totem, symbol, or spirit associated with each card is depicted within the card image itself and also in isolation as an additional feature of the card in the lower left or right-hand corner of each card.

The Avalonian Oracle provides very deep readings. I recommend that when using this deck you leave your reading out for a while so you can ponder it. I have gained many fresh insights into various situations simply by leaving the reading out so I can look it over as I walk past it throughout the day. If you have an affinity to the Celtic pantheon, culture, or the Goddess in general, you will really enjoy this deck.

Blessings!

The Mystical Wisdom Card Deck Review

Mystical Wisdom Card DeckThe Mystical Wisdom Card Deck is a lovely collection of artwork by renowned artist, Josephine Wall. The card-sized paperback booklet is written by Gaye Guthrie. The deck and booklet are housed in a 4 1/8 x 5 7/8” box with fitted lid. The box has a glossy finish with the image from the Peacock card on the box lid. Two additional cards are featured on the bottom of the box with isolated elements of card images on all four sides of the lid.

The guidebook for The Mystical Wisdom Card Deck contains 64 pages with two pages labeled for notes. Gaye Guthrie begins with a brief discussion of how to use the deck. This is followed by the interpretations of the cards. A 3 x 1 ¼” black and white detail of each card appears on the page followed by the card’s interpretation that concludes with what the author refers to as a “mantra,” which many will also recognize as a positive affirmation. No information is provided on how to use the mantras. Myself, when I am using a positive affirmation I repeat it five times in front of a mirror as I look myself in the eye. I do this three times a day. Repeating a statement five times assures that it reaches the subconscious. Looking at yourself in the mirror while using an affirmation or mantra focuses your conscious mind on whatever you are hoping to manifest by using the affirmation or mantra. One page is devoted to each card and its interpretation. The guidebook concludes with a section entitled, “Reading the Cards.” This consists of a one-card spread, a three-card spread, a four-card spread and the Celtic Cross that is usually found in most Tarot guidebooks.

There are 46 cards in The Mystical Wisdom Card Deck. Cards measure 3 ¾” x 5 ½”. They have a nice smooth laminate semi-gloss finish and shuffle easily once you’ve broken them in a bit. Josephine Wall’s artwork is gorgeous. She makes wonderful use of bright colors and light. Images have a flow that gives them a sense of movement and inner life. When using the deck I recommend that you allow your eyes to wander over each image. Something specific will pop out at you and grab your attention (at least for me). If this happens pay special attention to that symbol or color that is calling to you because there is additional meaning for you. There are three angel cards (Archangels Gabriel and Raphael, and the Angel of Miracles), eight animal guide cards (Animal Bond, Dolphin, Dove, Dragon, Dragonfly, Owl, Peacock, and Unicorn), and thirty-five additional insightful cards for guidance.

The Mystical Wisdom Card Deck is very simple to use. It is ideal for beginners because it does not contain any images that some may find frightening or upsetting. The images have a healing vibration to them and are soothing to the psyche. The card spreads are very simple to use and there are simple explanations included in the guidebook as to how to use the card spreads. All of these factors combined make The Mystical Wisdom Card Deck an ideal deck for beginners. I also consider this deck to be suitable for children who may be interested in exercising their intuitive muscles.

Here is a sample of how the deck works. I used the 4-card spread. My husband, who has been out of work since last October, decided in December to start his own business. He provides in-home care for the elderly in order to keep them in their own homes for as long as that is physically possible for them. It’s been touch and go with getting started up so I asked what we could expect from his new business venture regarding income. The cards I received are as follows:

Mystical Wisdom Deck

Past: Epiphany ~ the meaning of this card is a sudden realization. This occurred in early December when my husband suddenly realized the banking industry was not for him. I had been telling him this for years, but of course he doesn’t listen to me, but I’m glad he finally woke up!

Present: Seven Heavenly Virtues ~ this card neatly sums up what his business will provide others since the Seven Heavenly Virtues are Faith, Hope, Charity, Fortitude, Justice, Patience and Temperance. This card sums up his need to put his spiritual gifts to work, which is exactly what he is finally doing.

Future: Archangel Raphael ~ the archangel of healing blesses my husband’s business. I am amazed that the term “caregiver” is used here because those are the people my husband has employed and he refers to them as his Care Team. They focus on helping the person with whatever they need, taking them out, and providing companionship.

Outcome: Money ~ the advice of this card is to be strong and the money will come in, so in a nutshell the Money card answered my question. I swear I did not pull these cards purposefully. This was a completely random draw. I am very pleased with how each card of this spread applied to my husband’s business situation.

I have just begun to use the card images for meditation. Josephine Wall’s art is so intricate that your eyes will not get bored as you center yourself and examine the same card image for a few minutes. The card images of The Mystical Wisdom Card Deck lend themselves easily to meditation. I also feel that with proper focus, intention and use of the included mantras they can be used as an additional tool for spell work for those of you who are practitioners.

As you can see, The Mystical Wisdom Card Deck is very user friendly. I highly recommend it to those new to divination as well as to those who may find Tarot to be a bit too daunting or frightening. I also feel that children would love this deck if they are interested in card reading.

Blessings!

The First Light Tarot

Dinah Roseberry      The First Light Tarot      Schifferbooks      $24.99

First Light Tarot: 22 Majors, 22 Insights, 22 Spread Cards

The First Light Tarot consists of 66 cards and a 96-page paperback guidebook. The cards are housed in a recessed well inside of a 6 x 9” hinged box with a magnetic closure that allows the box to be stored standing on its end as if it were a book. The First Light Tarot also includes a 6 x 18” fold-out laminated Reference Card that provides card names and major keywords, concepts, astrological correspondences and basic interpretations for quick and easy reference.

Entitled The First Light Tarot, this deck is more of an oracle deck. The First Light Tarot consists of a 22-card major arcana with the traditional card titles, along with an additional 22 Insight Cards for a total of 44 cards with interpretations. There are an additional 22 Spread Cards meant to be used by readers in order to create their own spreads. A single card position is noted on each of the Spread Cards that include two Wild Cards so readers can come up with their own names for a card position within a spread.

 

The 22 Insight Cards lend a more oracular feel to The First Light Tarot. The 22 Insight Cards and the 22 Major Arcana cards can be used in isolation for readings or combined. Only one spread is included, entitled the Universal Spread, which is a 10-card spread that is laid out just like the Celtic Cross, but card positions have different associations than in the traditional Celtic Cross tarot spread.

The artwork for the card images consists solely of gorgeous photographs of outer space taken by the Hubble Telescope that have been cropped to focus on a particular area within the larger original photos. The title of The First Light Tarot refers to the very first time light hits the mirrors contained within a telescope that enables the telescope to take its very first photograph. It is a moment of tremendous excitement for the telescope developers and the staff of NASA.

Dinah Roseberry’s goal for The First Light Tarot was to create a deck that could easily be used straight out of the box and not require any great study, thus being user friendly. The card interpretations for The First Light Tarot are traditional tarot major arcana interpretations for the 22 Major Arcana cards while interpretations for the 22 Insight Cards have a more oracular feel to them that are based upon Numerology. The two types of cards create two 22-card decks that can also be used in combination with one another. The First Light Tarot works well as a stand-alone 22-Majors only deck, a 22-card oracle deck, and in combination. The cards also work well with both traditional tarot spreads and spreads commonly found in guidebooks that accompany oracle decks, most of which are strongly based upon traditional tarot spreads. Card imagery of The First Light Tarot lacks the symbolism of tarot cards so readers do not feel bogged down with symbolic associations due to the simple imagery found in outer space photographs.

The 22 cards of the Major Arcana of The First Light Tarot have astrological associations that are factored into their card interpretations. The 22 Insight Cards have numerological associations as part of their interpretations giving The First Light Tarot a heavy dose of Numerology if one also takes into account the numerological associations typically associated to cards of the Tarot major arcana.

The card images of The First Light Tarot are beautiful, but unlike other Schiffer decks, the card stock is flimsy with a semi-gloss finish. The Major Arcana, Insight, and Spread cards all have different card backs so they can be easily sorted by looking at the reverse side of each card. The cards are very flexible and are therefore easy to shuffle despite their size. The First Light Tarot lend themselves well to both tarot and oracle spreads making this a well-rounded deck with numerous applications.

Blessings!

Free Reading for the Week of May 18, 2015

I asked the cards in general, what do we all need to know for the week ahead? I drew 3 cards representing Body, Mind & Spirit.

The Magical Times Empowerment Cards by Jody Bergsma. US Games, Inc. 2013.
The Magical Times Empowerment Cards by Jody Bergsma. US Games, Inc. 2013.

The message on each card reads:

BODY:  Journey: Focus on how far you have come, not on how far you have to go. you will find help in unexpected places (original emphasis).

MIND:  Adversity: See the gifts in challenge. One can be taught within the calm, but the greatest lessons are learned from the storms (original emphasis).

SPIRIT: Manifestation: Your dreams have untold energy. Open the door and let them live. Desire and belief are your power.

For an oracle deck, The Magical Empowerment Cards can provide some very heavy duty readings, and this reading is a good example of that. (For my review, please see yesterday’s post).

This reading starts with a Journey, as do most things. The first card is saying we’re on a journey and heading toward somewhere & we need to focus on how far we’ve already come, not how far we have yet to travel.

Adversity tells us there will be obstacles along our path. Well, that’s life. There are obstacles and within them we find our greatest lessons.

The final card is Manifestation. If we’re brave and undertake the journey, deal with the adversity we must all face, then through our desire and faith our dreams can manifest.

This week may prove to be one of major achievements and dreams realized as long as we don’t allow the blocks we run across to overwhelm us. Instead, look past them and keep your eyes on your goal.

Thank you for following my blog & feel free to leave comments.

Wishing you all many blessings!

Deck Review: The Resonance Oracle

Resonance Oracle Cards

40 cards & 93-page guidebook

http://www.schifferbooks.com

ISBN # 978-0-7643-4138-0

$24.99

         Intended for novice and experienced readers alike, The Resonance Oracle Cards is characterized by thought-provoking channeled images in both portrait and landscape orientation.  The cards measure 5 X 3 ½” as does the guidebook.  The cards and guidebook are housed in what we’ve grown accustomed to seeing from Schiffer Books, a stiff, sturdy and highly laminated cardboard box with a hinged magnetic lid with ribbon pull.  The packaging makes for a lovely presentation.

Resonance Oracle - Garden of Beauty The guidebook is open-ended regarding the typical “how to use this deck” goes.  You can draw a single card, 3 cards, or carry out more involved spreads typically used with tarot decks.  I do not feel this will cause any confusion even to beginning readers. It will encourage them to use their imagination and perhaps start creating their own spreads.

Cards have titles such as:  Garden of Beauty, Communication, Eclipse, Blessings, Life Abundant, and Release.  Card interpretations offered in the guidebook consist of a single paragraph that offers a general summary and two short alternative meanings.  Each card is depicted in black and white on the facing page.  The deck laminate is sturdy and glossy that is typical of decks from Schiffer Books.  The deck will withstand years of use.

The cards were stiff coming out of the box.  However, it onlyResonance Oracle - Sun & Moon took about seven shuffles to break them in.  They became much more supple and easier to shuffle.  The deck stands 11/16” high when stacked.

There are two things I really like about this deck, in addition to the artwork.  Firstly, they broken in easily when shuffling.  I don’t appreciate decks that remain stiff indefinitely since I have smaller hands.  Secondly, I love the fact that the artist chose to create the images in both portrait and landscape orientation.  Portrait orientation is what readers are accustomed to seeing for a deck, but as an artist myself, I find that many times a subject matter just isn’t suited to the portrait orientation.  Based upon the composition of the images and the information conveyed by the imagery wise choices were made as to which cards would be created in landscape format.  It also creates an interesting layout when you use the cards with some in the spread in portrait orientation and others in landscape orientation.  The energy flows from card to card a bit differently than what readers may be used to, but I really enjoy the difference.

Resonance Oracle - BlessingsThe cards are not numbered. The title appears at the base of the card.  Card titles are provided alphabetically in the guidebook so they can still easily be found when doing readings.  However, the image is so provocative that I really encourage you to first try using this deck without the guidebook.  You may come up with some very interesting interpretations of the imagery all on your own.  The images consist of various components that tend to draw the eye to particular symbols.  Whenever that occurs in a reading you should know to pay special attention to the symbol and work it into your overall interpretation of that card.  This goes for any deck, not just The Resonance Oracle.

 Dara Caplan, both the artist and author of this deck, leaves it open-ended as to how you are to use it.  There are no spreads provided in the guidebook so if this is your very first deck you have ever puTarot Spreads by B Moore coverrchased, I do recommend you purchase a book on card spreads.  An excellent one that was published in the past few months is Barbara Moore’s Tarot Spreads:  Layouts & Techniques to Empower Your Readings (Llewellyn Publishing, 2012).  This book offers a myriad of spreads  that you can use with tarot and oracle decks alike.  The book is very well written with the meaning beh

ind each card position in each spread fully explained.  It’s wonderful for beginnings and if you are an experienced reader like myself, the book is still very useful and will encourage you to create your own spreads.

The Resonance Oracle is an enjoyable deck that – at least for me – provides readings that make me sit and think.  I connect the dots and then the answer or guidance reveals itself.  I’m much more a tarot person than a user of oracle decks, but this one is very nice and I enjoy using it.
