Stone Circle Oracle Review



Stone Circle Oracle

By Sophia Kelly Shultz (Author)

Review

The enticingly mysterious Stone Circle, located in the Allegheny Mountains of south-central Pennsylvania, serves as the backdrop for this unique and lavishly illustrated oracle and meditation deck of 45 cards with a guide/journal. Feel the depth of rich color and intuitive grace as you explore imagery of the Circle, from dreams and from many and varied spiritualties, including ancient Egyptian, ancient Greek, and Afro-Caribbean. Travel to a personal realm where the creator's interpretation of an image is secondary to what you, the user, see. This is your set of tools for self-exploration, self-improvement, and self-validation: contemplate the images, read the meditations, and use the journal to describe what the elements say as you create a singular and lasting resource that is as insightful and individual as you are.

Meditated on sequentially, the cards create a journey, from awakening to integration, which is filled with wisdom and enlightenment. Individually, each card is a trigger which releases intuitive information and insight. This deck is a delight and your muses and spirit helpers will love it as much as you do.

I personally find these oracle cards very inspiring and beautiful. I really love the wording of this oracle deck and the art work is very inspiring though a lot of the images are found when searching the web for just the images. I do love using this deck for my tarot readings.
Love this deck! The photos are amazing! I felt a real connection with this deck instantly! I love doing my daily oracle readings using this deck!

Lenormand Cartomancy Review






Lenormand Cartomancy

By Christopher Butler (Author)


Review

Marie-Anne Lenormand was the greatest celebrity fortune teller of the Napoleonic Era. Among her famous consultants were Frances, Lady Shelley, Robespierre, and the Empress Josephine, with whom she formed a lifelong bond of friendship. Since the mid-nineteenth century, the enigmatic fortune telling deck contained in this box has been associated with her secret techniques of cartomancy and fortune telling. Discover for yourself this long revered tradition through the comprehensive guidebook and a traditional Lenormand deck, freshly re-illustrated for the modern age. You will be guided on a card-by-card journey, and, when you've finished, you'll have the skills to perform readings both simple and complex. Take your cards and, in the words of the great lady herself, coupez! The spell cast by the Sybil of the Salons has never been stronger.



This has become my go-to deck because it is a visual feast and yields excellent readings. It is perfect for beginners because the book explains the process of reading in a clear, easy to follow manner. The layers of reading can be taken in stages so it does not become overwhelming. The kit is perfect for advanced readers as they can add to their knowledge base and try new spreads.

These cards will amaze you! I thought it was one of the best books written that was included with the deck. So in conclusion, if you collect/use Lenormand cards you have to get this deck, overall I can’t say enough good things about this deck. I do recommend this deck.

Tree of Life Oracle Review


Tree of Life Oracle

By Elaine Clayton

Review
Use your innate connection to nature, through trees, to find solutions to life's questions. This oracle, consisting of 30 beautiful image cards and an accompanying booklet, is designed to help you with relationships, self-empowerment, and personal well-being. The focus of this deck is to strengthen the consciousness of the participant. Trees, in all their beauty and majesty, inspire us as humans and remind us of our aspirations and ideals, our potential to love and expand in knowledge. Tree of Life Oracle enhances self-awareness, while supporting our human nature as we strive to grow through challenges and struggles. Detailed ink and watercolor drawings bring out inner knowing and enhance deeper sensitivity. The explanations for each card are written to expand psychological, intuitive-empathic intelligence, while delighting the participant and reminding her/him that all we need to know can be found through our kinship with nature. Tree of Life Oracle will help you through any season of life.

I've found the deck to be so fluid and intuitive that the differences do not hinder my interpretations. I've found it to be like settling down with a dear friend. Each morning I look forward to sitting on my front porch and doing a quick read. It is very nature base. Indeed, all of the court cards are trees, and the deck is full of Old World imagery. It is very lovely and refreshing. I'm so very thankful to have added this deck to the family.
As far as the artwork -- the picture on the box is a good representation. Subtle and expressive and not redundant - all art adds to the interpretation. This is a beautiful deck I absolutely love it!!!
This is a delicate time for humanity as a whole. We cannot forget our primal roots. I am using technology to deliver a message that says let it go for a while. Power down your laptops and cellphones. Pick up a copy of the Tree of Life Oracle. Oracle cards will never be downloadable. Next, visit a local forest with your deck. Find a sunny clearing near a tree that calls to you. Sit down with the cards and chat with them. Happiness this way lies...
