Deck of Interest—The Enchanted LENORMAND Oracle

Apr 26 2019 Published by under Anna's Decks of Interest, Lenormand, Watkins Publishing

What will LENORMAND say to you?

As a reigning pillar of divination history and education, Caitlín Matthews has made Lenormand one of her specialties. Her experience has shown her that the newer Lenormand decks, which add layers of details to the traditional images, are less effective as oracular tools than earlier decks with simpler imagery. It was Virginia Lee who suggested presenting each image in a crystal ball, emerging from a lush forest, in the center of the card. Together they resisted digital imagery and modern art materials for this magical deck, favoring instead these simple hand-painted cards. Matthews did add two new cards as additions to the traditional Man and Woman cards to make the deck inclusive.

The 160-page, full-color guidebook contains all the information that readers, new or seasoned, will need to maximize their experience with this enchanting presentation of the Petit Lenormand. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Deck of Interest—Hip Chick Tarot

Apr 19 2019 Published by under Anna's Decks of Interest, Schiffer Publishing

How do you claim your power?

Bold and hopeful, this deck is meant for women — and the men who love them? These are women who come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. They are upfront women who let you know who they are and what they are about. They are painted as icons, simply and vibrantly. The message they bring is clearly tarot (and will be recognizable to seasoned readers) but the delivery is all their own.

The accompanying 112-page book explains it all but I recommend just shuffling the deck and diving right in. Let the ladies be your guides.

I’m tempted to say that the deck is great for young readers but I’m hoping a fair share of crones like me will take it to heart as well. “Mature dogs”, new tricks, good for the soul. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Deck of Interest—Queen of the Moon Oracle

Apr 13 2019 Published by under Anna's Decks of Interest, Red wheel/Weiser

Does the moon speak to you?

It has always spoken to Stacey Demarco and this spectacular 44-card deck is the result of a lifetime of studying (and loving) the mysterious globe in the sky. Kinga Britschgi’s elegant photographic collages capture the power of the lunar energies. The full-color, 108-page companion book tells readers everything they might want to know about lunar cycles, special moons (Blue Moon, Super Moon), reading the cards, and the traditional metaphysical associations and applications of lunar wisdom.

Highly positive in her interpretations of each card, she speaks with insight, reassurance, and common sense guidance. This is a perfect deck to use as a daily meditation tool. Of course, seasoned card readers will want to just dive right in, pull a card or two, and let their intuitive connection take them on a journey through the densely layered illustrations.

Many people who regularly do believe that they are messages from the divine realms. But how can we know what they are telling us? Even the most intuitive among us sometimes need a little bit of extra insight. And insight is exactly what this deck provides.

Alison DeNicola has selected 44 birds and paired them with affirmations that reflect each bird’s spiritual history and natural correspondences.

Deck of Interest—Chakra Wisdom Tarot

Mar 30 2019 Published by under Anna's Decks of Interest

How much do you know about your chakras?

This lineup of glamorous ladies, and a few handsome escorts, takes readers through a tour of the tarot which has been specifically designed to connect with the energies of the chakra system. The illustrations on the cards are very polished and high-end. One might say it’s Tarot goes to the Oscars but that would be making light of Hartman’s decades of experience with both the tarot and the other realms.

Hartman’s motto is: Enlightenment Made Simple. It affirms her dedication to make esoteric concepts simple for others to understand. This new deck is a perfect example of her ability to do that.

The deck includes a beautiful 112-page, full-color guidebook. It includes four new tarot layouts specifically for use with the chakra system. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Deck of Interest—Raven’s Wand Oracle

Mar 16 2019 Published by under Anna's Decks of Interest, US Games

Have you been to Wildwood Coven?

With this amazing new oracle deck, Steven Hutton not only gives us a personal tour of the vibrant world of witchcraft he created for his Dark Raven Chronicles trilogy, but the 44 dynamic card illustrations he created have raised the bar for oracle fantasy art. Each card provides a magical environment that draws the reader in. The power of this deck, however, is the degree of animation and presence emanated by each living being in the cards.

And living beings abound. In addition to human and animal protagonists, the scenes are also filled with flying fish, mythical critters, fireflies, birds, ducklings, mini-dragons, raccoons, hogs, snakes, bunnies, wolves, and cats—-lots and lots of cats. Each of the beings seem to be inhabited by a strong, emotive personality that helps to convey the message of the protagonist.

Hutton’s intent is to convey the wisdom of witchcraft. He does that with energy that swirls within each card and hints of dark shadows without surrendering the high road. As an oracle it provides endless stimulation for intuitives. As a teacher of the craft, its lessons will be endless. SHOP FOR THE BOOK

Deck of Interest—Ask the Wise Fool®

Feb 22 2019 Published by under Anna's Decks of Interest, US Games

 



Do you have a question for the court jester?

When power becomes concentrated in the hands of a small group (or single person), the “yes-men” take over. When that happens, smart authoritarians invite a “Wise Fool” into their inner circle to ensure that somebody will speak the truth to them. These court jesters are traditionally given immunity in advance, so that they are free to tell the person in charge that they have become delusional. Roger von Oech has made a career out of being the person who points out the elephant in the room. And quite a successful career it is.

This 66-card deck and 96-page guidebook is his latest entry into the “let’s keep it real” arena. The cards are divided into three suits. CONTRARY STRATEGIES cards are designed to challenge groupthink and help readers get in touch with their creative core. CREATIVE STRATEGIES cards are meant to shift readers perspectives and help them look at things with new eyes. CAUTIONARY STRATEGIES cards counsel prudence in an unpredictable world.

Like von Oech, I have spent most of my adult life studying (and practicing) creative process. It appears that creativity is an idea whose time has come. Once again, US Games is at the head of the pack, helping von Oech to bring his wisdom to the public in this original and beautifully designed intuitive tool. SHOP FOR THE BOOK

Deck of Interest—Crystal Intentions Oracle

Jan 04 2017 Published by under Anna's Decks of Interest, Llewellyn

Llewellyn Publications

Can you control your thoughts?

As New Consciousness ideology becomes increasingly mainstream, more people are jumping on the positive-thinking bandwagon. Most of them are finding out that it’s easier said than done. As a result, tools and techniques which facilitate the change-in-thought processes are beginning to take center stage in the mind/body/spirit world. Lembo is in the forefront of that trend with this new deck. She has carefully selected 42 stones, dividing them into six categories, to create a powerful tool for helping us energize our lives and create positive change.

Lisa Kovak has done a state-of-the-art job in designing the cards and their packaging. The 100-page full-color booklet which accompanies the deck packs quite a punch despite its small size. It’s a terrific way to learn about the metaphysical properties of these 42 stones. It also provides instruction for using the cards to meditate and/or gain intuitive information. For those who aren’t inclined to read instructions, I suggest pulling a card and letting its message indicate which situation or situations in your life it is speaking to. I pulled Watermelon Tourmaline when I first opened the deck, shuffled it, and pulled a card. The stone speaks to receiving love with a further indication about self-acceptance (a notch up from Rose Quartz which speaks more generally to affection and unconditional love). I put the card in front of my computer to remind me that there’s more to life than work. I could feel the shift in the surrounding energy immediately. Ironically, one of the first stones I purchased for myself three decades ago was Watermelon Tourmaline. Maybe this time I’ll understand what it’s telling me.

New to crystals? No problem! The cards will give you everything you need to get started and the guidebook provides additional information when you’re ready for it. SHOP FOR THE DECK

Deck of Interest—Pagan Lenormand Oracle

Oct 20 2016 Published by under Anna's Decks of Interest, Oracles in Action™

Lo Scarabeo

What do pagans have to do with Lenormand?

This innovative deck combines the ritual and nature-based spirituality of paganism with the traditional imagery of the Lenormand deck.

Drawing on the inherent inclusiveness of paganism, the deck has two cards representing “man” and two cards representing “woman”, each one from a different heritage. This means that there is a card to represent each of the directions of the natural circle (or medicine wheel) and makes it clear that the deck recognizes more than one race.

Without sacrificing the long-standing symbolism of the Lenormand deck, the illustrations have been updated for modern users. The power of cards like Moon is self-evident.You will find potato chips, koi, a Book of Shadows, and a pentagram ring. The power of cards like Moon is self-evident. My favorite card is 20-Garden with its magenta labyrinth.

Practicing pagans will find quick and easy connection to the deck. For those who are new to nature spirituality, this deck provides a terrific tool for learning about paganism, visually and intuitively. SHOP FOR THE DECK
