I bought Goddess Oracle in the same week that I bought the Goddess Tarot by Kris Waldherr.The artwork in both items is excellent, well-executed, soulful, uplifting.In both items, goddesses from various cultures are represented. Both the Oracle and the Tarot deck are accompanied with booklets-well, the Oracle booklet is more like a book, but not cumbersome and not written in the airy-fairy fluffy-bunny all-light-and-no-dark style I've come to dread.
Much as I like Tarot in general, I must say I prefer the Goddess Oracle in this case. Kris Waldherr in the Tarot deck gives us 22 goddesses as the Major Arcana. Well and good. But the pips are rather run-of-the-mill. Amy Marashinsky gives us 52 goddesses in her Oracle, many of which I had never heard of. There's Isis, of course, and Juno, Diana, etc-and I'd expect those-but the real joy for me has been meeting the less familiar goddesses, the Native American ones-well, some of them! there must be many-and Pele, who comes from Hawaai, and Vila, who is an Eastern European nature goddess, and so on.It's also interesting to find Baba Yaga here-not in her usual guise of fairy-tale ogress and eater of children but in her(presumably older) manifestation of powerful goddess incorporating and embodying the opposites of death AND life-a sort of Russian Kali. The art by Jana Hranto is superb.
.You can pick a card a day at random and meditate on it. Or go through the book and select a goddess whose qualities speak to your current situation or mood. Or. . . .? It's up to you. This book has suggestions in it but does not lay down the law or offer complicated and abstruse systems
