I deeply love using these cards. The art is beautiful and i truly feel the meaning of the card within. I would recommend these oracle cards to anyone who is trying to reach the inner Goddess as i find meditating with each card connects you to the Goddess you wish to communicate with

I've dabbled with many different oracle decks, but when I got Kris Waldherr's Goddess Inspiration Oracle, I knew I'd found my match/ Beautifully illustrated, this is an extensive deck consisting of 80 goddesses ranging from Abeona (Roman goddess of departures) to The Zorya (a Russian trinity of guardian goddesses). You can probably tell just from those two, that this deck includes some really unusual goddesses and from a truly global perspective. Ukemochi (Japan), Ogboinba (Nigeria), Saci (India), Anuket (Egypt), Cimidye (Ticuna), Nyai Loro Kidun (Java) and Rhiannon (Wales) are all present along with some of the more well-known Venus, Isis, Freyja, Persephone & Pele.

Each goddess card has an image and a very short message, while the guidebook gives a longer description along with a few key themes associated with each goddess. There are a few suggestions for different ways to read the cards too.

All in all, this is by far my favourite deck to work with, and I find that their messages and stories really resonate with me. If you're looking to deepen your connection to the goddesses, then I highly recommend that you add these to your intuitive toolbox.

Some of the images were already used in the Tarot deck by Kris Waldherr so you know what to expect when it comes to artwork. As far as the content is concerned I think this deck is simply too big which causes the repetition of meanings and reduces the section of stories behind the goddesses (in fact there's just half of page devoted to the actual legends and myths concerning the goddess, that is much too little). I think it would be wiser to choose just 40-50 cards but to develop the spiritual and divination context more. Really there is no use to create an oracle deck that is bigger than Tarot! In general: it would be a good addition to the work with a goddesses deck that you already use and it most certainly is a wonderful deck if you search for more 'exotic' goddesses which are not included in typical goddesses cards. I really appreciate the fact that there are real goddesses here and no cards of St. Mary or Mary Magdalene are included.

Really not for me, got put off by the smell, sounds daft i know!
I like the artwork and the booklet is lovely,, there is a good description of the goddesses (about80 of them) the box is flimsy though and if you use the organza bag provided (which i appreciate, thank you very much) then the box does not close well

great guidance, very inspiring 9 Jun. 2009
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
I love this deck. Usually I agree with Janet Boyer but this time I disagree. The deck is right on for guidance and well done with artwork. I loved it and cant wait to do readings with it. I do professional readings.
If you like Goddesses, you will resonate with this deck. I just wish the 3 keywords for each goddess were on the card itself,it would have made it easier to read/understand the message at times. The 3 keywords are in the booklet that accompanies this deck in the kit. Some examples of messages are -Fortuna-Believe in the good fortune before you. Maman Brigitte-That which appears dead will be resurrected. Look for it. Diana-It is time to hunt for what brings you strength.

Very Inspirational 24 Sept. 2008
By K. L. Coleman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Cards
Besides being a gorgeous looking deck, this is very well thought out. Many goddesses will be new to most people and the book gives a simple background to their story to acquaint you with them.

This deck can be used and read like a standard tarot deck or it can just be enjoyed on it's own for inspirational readings, with or without the book. Pull a random card out and meditate on it's meaning - all are positive and uplifting.

I received this particular deck as a gift and I highly recommend it for gift giving. It wasn't something I would have bought for myself, but I am so glad I own it now.

An 80-Card Oracle Dedicated to the Goddesses 9 Aug. 2007
By Janet Boyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Cards
"We are meant to be filled with joyful inspiration, to spill over with exuberant spirit. May the Goddess Inspiration Oracle animate your life with inspiration, providing you with an intimate experience of the Divine Feminine." - Kris Waldherr

From the brilliance of Athena to the compassion of Kuan Yin, the beauty of Freyja to the passion of Pele, stories of goddesses weave through centuries of myth and culture. Whether displaying feats of strength, imparting sage counsel or brokering peace, these threads of Divine Feminine energy provide models to emulate and contemplate.

For some, this energy is as real as breath itself, arriving on the wings of invocation. For others, the goddesses represent archetypal containers of specific traits that can be accessed for creative pursuits, personal growth, healing and illumination.

Artist and author Kris Waldherr couples the variegated energy of the Goddess with an accessible form of divination that anyone can use: oracle cards. The Goddess Inspiration Oracle unfurls the artistry from Ms. Waldherr's previous works, including The Goddess Tarot, Sacred Animals, Lover's Path Tarot and The Book of Goddesses.

Highlighting the unique energy of 80 different goddesses, the Goddess Inspiration Oracle and the 112-page companion book provide seekers with everything they need for consulting the Feminine Divine.

Do you need a dose of eloquence so that you may speak with confidence? Focus upon the Nigerian goddess Oya. Perhaps you feel a brush with luck or increased prosperity is in order? The Indian goddess, Lakshmi, is considered the sacred manifestation of abundance. If you've been passive for far too long, needing a backbone instead of a wishbone, perhaps the fiery Hawaiian goddess Pele would be your gal!

In addition to using these cards for affirmations or inspiration, the Goddess Inspiration Oracle serves as a comprehensive divination tool. Whether you require insight on past, present or future experiences, the wealth of goddesses--some well known and others more obscure--from cultures around the world stand ready to aid you on life's journey.

Here are but a few of the goddesses you'll find in the Goddess Inspiration Oracle:

* Aine, The Fairy Queen - Love, Light and Magic
* Brigit, The Fiery Arrow - Poetry, Artistry and Fire
* Demeter, The Mother - The Seasons, Motherhood, and Loss
* Gaia, Mother Earth - Creation, The Earth and Connection
* Hekate, The Dark One - Menopause, Wisdom and The Supernatural
* Inanna, Queen Moon - The Heavens, Strength and Resurrection
* Lalita, The Amorous - Love, Flirting and The Universe
* The Muses, Goddesses of Inspiration - The Arts, Science and Creativity
* Nut, The Celestial Vault - The Sky, The Stars and Protection
* Oshun, The Modest One - Water, Love and Fertility
* Rhiannon, The Horse Goddess - Progress, Happy Endings and Desire

In the companion book to the Goddess Inspiration Oracle, Ms. Waldherr explains the varied uses of this deck, and gives a brief bio of each of the goddesses--as well as a pertinent oracular phrase that is re-printed on the front of the corresponding card.

Cards measure 4-5/8 x 2-3/4 inches, but the painted images are less than 2 x 2 inches. A muddied chartreuse motif borders the small central image, with the same dull color echoed on the non-reversible backings. A dark monochromatic gray fills most of the background on the front of the cards.

Packaged in a flimsy box, The Goddess Inspiration Oracle also comes with a useful gold organdy bag with satin drawstrings. (Incidentally, the same bag comes with the Mystic Faerie Tarot).

I've had great success with Doreen Virtue's Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards (in fact, it's one of my favorite non-Tarot decks), so I looked forward to working with the Goddess Inspiration Oracle.

Unfortunately, these cards didn't work for me. One day, I was going through a particularly challenging time and drew a card that was entirely irrelevant. However, I stuck with it for a few days--pondering that, perhaps, there was some "hidden" message that I was overlooking. A few days later, I was having an incredible day hanging out with my husband, reading on the porch during a warm rain that lasted hours.

I thought I'd give this deck another try during this lovely time...just a peaceful "checking in" with the goddesses...so I shuffled thoroughly--and then drew *the exact same card as before*! Again, it was 100% irrelevant on all counts. I gave this deck two more tries, including as I was writing this review (I would have been delighted had it resonated!), but alas--nada.

This surprised and disappointed me--but I'm well aware that no oracle is perfect for everyone. But because the Goddess Inspirational Oracle has almost double the cards of a Doreen Virtue deck (80 as opposed to 44), I incorrectly assumed it would "double my pleasure" in accessing wisdom from the goddesses.

While this deck didn't work for me, it has a lot of potential, in theory. If you're a huge fan of Ms. Waldherr's writings and art, you'll no doubt enjoy the Goddess Inspiration Oracle. I love that the goddesses in this deck span many cultures (although, Mother Mary is notably absent here), so those wanting to connect with the Divine Feminine or increase their knowledge of goddesses around the world may also benefit from this deck.
