Unboxing the Emotion Energy Oracle (2nd Edition)!

Join me as I unbox the second edition of the Emotion Energy Oracle by energy artist Dawn Beedell….

Pre-order this deck here: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/831313670/emotion-energy-oracle-deck-tarot-oracle

The Emotion Energy Oracle is a unique deck of cards, designed to stimulate intuition, feeling and contemplation. I find they work nicely as a one card, daily draw first thing in the morning or in the evening after a long day of bullshit.

Card stock is good quality – thick, sturdy and with a nice matte finish. Cards come in a nice box and the guidebook is available online.

I highly recommend getting a card stand to go with your deck – I didn’t think I’d use mine but I do everyday. It’s really nice to have a way to properly prop up a card on my desk or altar and my cats are 80% less likely to knock it over this way.
Tarot stands can be purchased here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/837057888/engraved-single-tarot-stand-oracle-stand

I feel like these cards would make a nice gift, whether for yourself or for an intuitively minded friend. You don’t need to be a card reading expert to work with these either – they can be read right out of the box.

Here are some questions that work well with these cards:

♥ What do I need more of in my life right now?

♥ What do I need to focus on today?

♥ What will be most helpful in this situation?

Happy Tarot Reading!

Unboxing the Zodiac Goddess Power Deck!

Join me as I unbox the Zodiac Goddess Power Deck by Kathy Crabbe!

The Zodiac Goddess Power Deck is a new oracle deck by Kathy Crabbe, creator of the Lefty Oracle Deck and Elfin Ally Oracle. It blends two awesome things – the Zodiac signs and goddesses!

Order this deck here: https://www.kathycrabbe.com/zodiac-deck

What I love about this deck is that it helps me better understand and connect with each astrological sign, as well as various goddess energies. The cards are beautiful, fun to work with and are a wonderful addition to my oracle deck collection!

This deck would be great for those new to oracle cards, as well as seasoned oracle and Tarot readers. The cards are fairly easy to connect with (thanks to Kathy’s gorgeous artwork!) and read right out of the box and it comes with a handy booklet, as well as some helpful info on the inside of the box (see video above for details).

I can’t wait to spend a bit more time getting to know these goddesses and journalling with them ♥

Unboxing The Cosma Visions Oracle!

The Cosma Visions Oracle is artist James R. Eads latest deck! He is also the creator of Light Visions and Prisma Visions Tarot and Green Glyphs Lenormand deck (all stunning, five star decks, in my opinion).

This deck was inspired by the spiritual journey we take between lives, which is a topic I’ve been fascinated by for most of my life (even when I was a weird kid).

Join me as I unbox this deck and take it for a test drive…

*To purchase or learn more about The Cosma Visions Oracle, go here.

First of all, I really love this deck – the cards feel luxurious and almost decadent with their lush colors and sumptuous images.

Beauty and high quality are what make this deck stand out from most of the decks I own and the gorgeous, sturdy box just adds to the enjoyment of these cards. I own three other decks by James and all of them are like this – high quality and super gorgeous.

These cards are thick and sturdy and have a matte finish – my fave! Edges are shiny dark blue/blackish, which is a nice departure from the typical gold.

A unique feature of this deck (and Jame’s other two Tarot decks) is how the minors, when lined up in order, form a continuous scene – I demonstrate this in my video above at 12:56.

Even though it’s called an Oracle deck, it follows the same structure of a Tarot deck but the major arcana and court cards have been renamed and re-imagined. Because of this, you might need to spend a bit of time getting to know this deck before you really hit the ground running with readings.

I suspect I will mostly use this deck for doing self readings and Tarot journalling, mainly because the images really beg to be contemplated (not quickly interpreted). This is a great deck to help you slow down and feel into the cards and really connect deeply with your intuition ♥

Unboxing The Deck of Character!

The Deck of Character is a fun, fresh, modern oracle designed not just for readings but for sparking conversations – with both your friends and your “higher self”!

I’ve been having tons of fun with these cards over the Summer and it’s amazing how a simple drawing can spark so many creative ideas and insights. I have yet to use this deck with friends, but I feel like even those who’ve never read a card before could read these – they are that easy and relatable!

Something I forgot to mention in this video is that I’ve been using this deck for creative writing and journalling and it’s amazing at sparking inspiration. Ideas for characters, plot lines, etc come pouring out of me when I have these cards at the ready.

Unboxing the Shadowland Tarot!

Join me as I unbox The Shadowland Tarot by Monica Bodirsky!

This deck is full of witchy critters, delightful monsters and fascinating creatures making it the perfect tool for shadow work and self exploration. I am just getting into “shadow work” (which I explain briefly in the video) and so this deck arrived at just the right time.

I love all the sweet, quirky and creepy critters in this deck and the way the images invite deeper exploration and inquiry. The guidebook that comes with the deck is A+++ in my opinion – not only does it give excellent card descriptions, it also gives you questions to ask for each card (LOVE this!!!)

Purchase this deck on Amazon (my affiliate link): https://amzn.to/2zUx8Fg

Artist’s site: https://www.monicabodirsky.com/

This Spring/Summer I intend to spend lots of time with The Shadowland Tarot and really get to know this deck – I will most likely be using it in a few of my upcoming weekly reading videos, so stay tuned 🙂

Join me as I give you a glimpse of the new Awakening edition of the Ember & Aura Tarot by Jamie Richardson!

To sum it up, this is a wonderful Tarot deck for readers of all experience levels and I’ve had many insightful readings with it. It’s a deck I’ll be using for many years to come!

Unboxing the Spacious Tarot!

The older and more irritable I get, the more I have come to appreciate decks that have a simple art style – you know, something that leaves you lots of room to breathe and contemplate. The Spacious Tarot excels at doing just that!

Join me as I go through The Spacious Tarot by Carrie Mallon and Annie Ruygt – showing you each card and then doing a two card reading at the very end (intended to be relevant to whomever is drawn to watch this video!)

To purchase The Spacious Tarot: https://thespacioustarot.com/

I can really see myself using this deck in my professional Tarot readings. The cards feel safe and non-threatening without being soft and wimpy and the deck in general just feels good – in both a physical and energetic sense.

I looked at images of this deck online and thought that looks like a great deck! but when I saw the cards in person for the first time it was a totally different experience – I was really touched by how some of the Majors were depicted. The High Priestess is breathtaking and I love how The Fool makes you feel like you are right there, about to leap off a cliff!

What I like most about this deck is how refreshing it feels – no clutter, no annoying people, just beautiful energy, animals and Tarot symbols.

I’ll be using this deck for my next weekly reading, so stay tuned!

Unboxing the Playful Heart Tarot by Kitten Chops

If you know me, you know I fucking LOVE cats! And I like happy stuff. I like feeling good and I like to do Tarot readings that leave me feeling uplifted. If you also like all of the above, you will love the Playful Heart Tarot!

Join me as I go through the Playful Heart Tarot by Kitten Chops – showing you each card and then doing a one card reading at the very end (intended to be relevant to whomever is drawn to watch this video!)

To purchase the Playful Heart Tarot: https://www.kittenchops.com/playful-heart-tarot

This is one of those decks that I’m going to save for personal use only (well, other than doing my weekly youtube readings!). I’ve been doing lots of journaling lately and this deck has really helped me in that process.

These cards are fun, cheerful and uplifting but are also surprisingly deep. This isn’t one of those fluff decks that make you smile but have no other purpose other than looking cute – oh no! This deck will help you root out your dark places and shine a light on them.

I think my favourite thing about this deck is how it helps you cultivate playfulness and joy in your day to day life, which is what I’m using it for right now!

I’ll be using this deck for my next weekly reading, so stay tuned!

Unboxing the Green Glyphs Lenormand

I’ve been really into Tarot and Oracle cards for the past 10 years but somehow managed to avoid learning anything about Lenormand cards until now. I know, it’s crazy!

Lenormand is very different from Tarot – yes, it’s still cards with pictures of stuff on them and you read them, but it’s done very differently. I think I avoided it because my brain just couldn’t handle learning another new divination system. But now I’m ready and raring to go!

I decided to start my Lenormand journey with the Green Glyphs Lenormand by James R. Eads (the creator of the Prisma Visions Tarot)…

To buy this deck: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jamesreads/green-glyphs-lenormand

I feel like this is a great deck for those new to Lenormand (like myself!) but also for those who just want a new, gorgeous, high quality Lenormand deck.

The card stock is orgasmic – velvety, matte finish with rose gold edges that don’t flake off sparkly shit on your fingers. The box is really cute and sturdy with a magnetic closure, making opening and closing this box feel oddly enticing. Also, the guidebook is awesome – lots of great basic info on how to use these cards.

I want to know…

Do you read Lenormand? Do you like it more or less than Tarot? And why? Please feel free to share in the comments below 🙂

Unboxing the Magick and Mediums Oracle

The Magick and Mediums Oracle by Anielle Reid is modern, mystical and powerful! Join me as I go through this deck and explore the cards…

This deck is ideal for meditation and using in any kind of magickal practice. Personally, I love sitting with just one of these cards and contemplating it in a relaxed and lazy manner – I had so many cool ideas and insights when I did this! Even got a few creative writing ideas!

So far I’ve only used this deck a handful of times, but each time I did it was a special experience, like I was dabbling in a new dimension or something. Ah, good times 🙂
