Oracle of Echoes | Review
Decks , Oracle , Review / 19 February 2017

There seems to be no end in awesome decks lately, finding my desk. But even amongst awesomeness there is always Top Dog and it looks like that one just barked ;). The latest oracle deck by Ana Tourian, deck designer of the Claire de Lune Lenormand and Hidden Waters Tarot, is most likely one of the most beautiful oracle decks I have ever seen. The name is Oracle of Echoes, and I…

Dream Dust Shamanic Tarot | Review
Decks , Oracle , Review , Tarot / 28 January 2017

The Dream Dust Shamanic Tarot… the name conjures up an image of an old wise man, bearded, sitting in a curtain of heavy smoke within his sweat lodge while throwing about glittered powder to give you a good night’s sleep. However, that’s a weird thought, doing no justice at all to this newest self published tarot deck. One…

Carry Me Crystals Oracle | Review
Cleansing , Decks , Oracle , Review / 28 October 2016

A lot of card readers use crystals in their practice. Either because of a ‘gemstone-fetish’ (guilty), to ‘infuse’ cards with energy, to protect themselves or perhaps some clients expect to see them. And then there is of course gemstone therapy. Carry Me Crystals Oracle combines a few things of the above. This oracle is said to offer a substitute for stones and a message on what you need right now. The Carry me Crystals Oracle, released quite recently by Schiffer Publishing, is delivered in a nice container. The white and lilac colored box feels like a rather luxurious chocolate bonbon packaging. The cover can be opened by pulling a little ribbon (cover lid will remain standing), revealing a large full color companion book and a small opening for a Lenormand sized oracle deck. It was a bit surprising to have such space for such a tiny deck, but the Carry Me Crystals Oracle won’t be overlooked this way. Besides, I do believe there will be options to use it in a different way. With its special top it can become a beautiful display when you take out the carton that holds the oracle. Instead you might find something to keep…

The Wyrd of Sarah Howard Oracle | Review
Decks , Oracle , Review / 31 July 2016

Instagram is sometimes the best place to discover new art & divination work. For one, it told me that Bonefire Tarot artist Gabi Angus-West had just published an oracle with the rather curious name The Wyrd of Sarah Howard Oracle. Truly limited edition: 100 copies**. At the time of receiving my personal package (nr 17!) I exclaimed on Facebook: “It rarely happens that my heart beats faster from an oracle. Sure, most have gorgeous art, but true oracles that can replace my tarot decks for advice and divination? Exceptional. One where…

Spirit Oracle | Review
Decks , Oracle , Review / 20 July 2016

For some time now I wanted to check out Tony Carmine Salerno’s work. Specifically having my eye on his Spirit Oracle and Universal Love deck (coming up later). While he doesn’t make tarot he’s one of the best known oracle designers of Blue Angel. A good oracle is just as useful for divination as a tarot deck can be. At least, if you have the right deck and are able to tap into your intuition 100% instead of relying on a system. Salerno is one of those (rare) oracle makers embracing both female and male energy.
