When I first unwrapped my Duality Deck I was so enchanted by the youthful, fresh, feminine vibe of these cards! You really have to see the video (above) to see what I mean. These cards feel playful, yet deep. Girlish, yet wise.
The cards have a glossy finish, are medium sized and are fairly flexible. They aren’t really thick cards, which I don’t mind since it makes them easier to shuffle and handle. But if you’re normally rough and violent with your cards, you will wear this deck out quickly. Treat it like a delicate flower and it will last.
The companion booklet is full color and larger than the typical little booklets that most decks come with, which is a real bonus if you have lousy eyes or just hate squinting.
In the companion booklet, there is a message/blurb for each card. I found the card messages to be wonderfully uplifting and helpful. However, I wish the symbolism in the cards were explained. I found myself wondering why particular images were chosen to represent particular concepts and most of all….what the red dots on the girl’s faces symbolized!
I have been using this deck for a few weeks now and I’m finding it a nice deck to use for my morning daily draws. The cards always feel comforting and it’s just a really nice way to start off the day.
But what’s different about this deck and what I LOVE about it is how much these cards seem to want to dialogue with me! If you’re thinking what the hell is dialoguing? let me tell you. Dialoguing is when you have an imaginary conversation with the figure on the card. It sounds a bit nuts, but hidden wisdom and new ideas are often uncovered this way.
And this deck is super easy to dialogue with because each girl on the card has a distinct and powerful personality. I feel like these girls just have so much to say and so much advice to give!
For example, just now I asked “how can I perk myself up?” (because I’ve been feeling super shitty today) and I got Focus. The girl on the Focus card looked right at me and was like “you need to focus on one task at a time instead of looking at the big picture! You have a bunch of reading to do for your course, now get to it and stop moping about!” Okay, I’m on it!
After spending some time with this deck I feel like I personally know all these girls, like they’re my friends, which kind of sounds creepy now that I’ve written it. I should probably get out more. But really, I feel like I know them now and that’s what really sets this deck apart from some of my others.
I’ve only used this deck for self readings, but I think it would make a fantastic deck for professional readings. I often draw an oracle card at the end of my Tarot readings, just to close the reading and give some parting advice and I think this deck would work beautifully for that due to it’s simplicity and gentleness.
However, I think this deck would be especially good for young people, particularly teen girls, who have an interest in oracle cards – even young kids, provided they aren’t destructive little monsters who mangle everything they can get their sticky mitts on.
Buy this deck if…
- You are new to Oracle cards and want a deck that feels safe and gentle
