This is a little harder to use than my existing fairy oracle but, this is a great inbetween for oracle to tarot. I feel this deck has a slight tarot feel to it without being Tarot.
The 4 cards you get with the deck showing you the different spreads I have found very useful rather than following them out of the book, a fantastic idea. The book included is so good, so comprehensive with so many options for different readings.
This is a great pack for someone who maybe isn't ready for tarot just yet but, wants to move on from the basic oracle packs, and the designs are absolutely gorgeous!
This is one of my favourite oracle decks, and will remain a favourite for a long while to come.
The art is stunning, sensitively done with digital software and exuding a real sense of place-you can almost smell the leaves, or the mist. There are 4 suits divided into the 4 seasons of the year, each suit of cards bordered with a different design of leaves and flowers. Then there are 8 cards appertaining to the 8 traditional festivals of the year, starting with Imbolc (February 1st) and ending with Yule ( round about the same time as Christmas).
There are several extra cards giving some unique spreads for readings. But I sometimes use this oracle just by drawing one card and then meditating on it for the day. The book by Anna Franklin is well-researched and interesting.
The team that produced this lovely oracle are also behind the Sacred Circle Tarot, another exploration and celebration of the pagan traditions of these islands.
The deck is lovely. The artwork of Paul Mason is almost photographic in nature and the graphics are super. Each card is loaded with symbolism and the fairies, either truly beautiful or really ugly are a joy to behold either way. The artwork here is what captures the attention, which is what the cards are supposed to do.
The 'seasons' - spring, summer, fall and winter - are each very close to the four suits of a regular deck of cards, ace through nine, and then there is a 'Lady' card, a 'knave' card (in place of a jack), a 'queen' and a 'king' card. While just a tad different from the other 'Rider-Waite' style of decks, the familiarity with a standard style of deck will allow you to pick up and use these cards with only a small amount of modification to the way you read. Being familiar with the 'Wheel of the Year' will also allow you to easily substitute this for the usual Major Arcane.
The book is also very well done. Ms. Franklin has put in much research and time to making this an excellent reference book to go along with the cards. Discussions about the seasonal nature of the fairy folk, the meaning of the names of the fairy folk, which are taken directly out of folklore and myth from the British Islands. To read this book is to take a trip through fairy tales (not Mother Goose here but the old fairy tales). Anyone with any interest in fairies would want to own this book just because of all the reference material collected in one place about the various fairy names.Read more ›
