The Magic of Flowers Oracle card deck features 44 inspirational divination cards with beautiful artwork and messages that nourish the mind, body and spirit.
The Magic Of Flowers Oracle is by written by Tess Whitehurst and illustrated by Anne Wertheim. The oracle card deck became available for purchase on Amazon.com in the first week of October, 2015 and is of course available at the publisher’s website at Llewellyn.com.
My cards arrived earlier this afternoon and have so far have well exceed my expectations. The set is packaged nicely into a box that will nicely arrange the cards and the companion book in a way that makes them easy to access, remove and put back without a hassle.
The companion book measures 5 x 6 inches and is thick at 264 pages, with a lot of text in a comfortably readable sized print containing valuable, insightful information. The interpretations are spiritually centered, earth and heart-based, making for a beautiful combination of energies that empower holistic reading which encompasses aspects of mind, body and spirit.
The cards are borderless with rounded corners with diverse and colorful images. They are sized similarly to Tarot cards published by Lo Scarabeo at 2 3/4 inches wide and just over 4 1/4 inches long. The card stock is typical of an oracle deck of this price. This means that it is more thin and flexible than card stock used for many Tarot decks and some oracle decks that run in the price range of $25.00 USD. This card deck is available for below that price.
The illustrated images include birds, butterflies, bees, hummingbirds. The female images seem to include diversity in age range, which to me implies stages of life such as maiden, mother, crone. Also included are youthful children and various male archetypes. The deck has it all, including one of the most eye-catching card backs I have ever seen.
I love and appreciate the diversity in the images of the people so very much. The cultural and ethnic diversity is noteworthy, impressive, and quite frankly something I would love to see a lot more of for artwork in decks featuring people. As a person of mixed race, I will admit, I sat with these cards choked up with tears for a while. I have so much gratitude, feeling represented and included in something so energetically powerful.
Some of the images of the people are just purely “exotic.” For someone like myself who does not identify solely with one ethnicity, I absolutely appreciate the inclusiveness and encompassing, embracing energy it offers. To see these images of exotic women with such empowered and grounded Goddess energy depicted so beautifully just captures my heart and my spirit in a very big way.
The cards read with a magical tone that sends an open, inviting and loving vibration throughout the reading. I can see this one becoming a popular favorite very quickly. More photos are on the way. If you have questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment or email.
