Beautiful book explaining, not just how the oracle cards work, but also the stories, and background of Celtic Folklore and how Nature and the Natural world fits in to the divination. Lovely product...would recommend. Perfect for those new to this.

I purchased this set Christmas 2000 and it's uplifting, inspiring and great fun! Although the cards are very happy, warnings are still evident! Worth the investment!

Looks like you're getting a lot but... 10 April 2001
By tressa - Published on
Format: Paperback
This set comes with a book, three sets of 20 cards each, and a perpetual calendar along with little new moon and full moon reusable stickers for the calendar. First off, the book doesn't really give detailed information on divination. It mentions that the Celts would fortell the future by the flight of birds, but didn't tell how! It just goes on to tell the different meanings of feather colors. The cards would be more helpful if they were study cards. The animal cards have a very nice picture of an animal on each and also a Gaelic name for the animal- and that is all. The book gives very short meanings for each of the animals and some tarot-like layouts. The tree cards are along the same lines with a decorative depiction of a piece of a tree and a Gaelic name. There are also "Celtic Wisdom" cards that have a saying or triad on each. I don't see myself getting a whole lot of use from the cards. The calendar, however, does look useful and is decorative. The book itself, while not giving enough of the information promised in the title, is highly illustrated and has pictures and details about Celtic saunas (the Celtic equivalent of the Native American sweat lodge.)

Great information, mediocre quality 9 Jan. 2015
By Ashley - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A friend used this deck to give me a reading a few months ago, and I just had to have it! The art and information are both incredible, and it's the best divination tool I've ever encountered. The only drawback to this deck is that the cards are very, very cheap. they seem to be made out of nothing more than cardstock, which makes them very difficult to shuffle. After only using the deck three or four times, many of the cards are ripping at the corners. It would be nice if they were laminated like playing cards or other tarot cards are. This is a major issue.
