Top 5 Oracle Decks of 2018

Continuing with the 31 Days of Tarot community challenge by Ethony, let’s talk about my top five oracle decks for 2018.

These are my top five oracle decks from the previous year, meaning (1) acquired the deck in the year 2018, and (2) actually worked with the deck in 2018, but most of these were published well before 2018.

The Celtic Shaman’s Pack by John Matthews and Chesea Potter is a deck I plan on reviewing in-depth at some future point. It’s an older deck that was then re-released  (and given a redesign) in 2017, but one I didn’t acquire myself until 2018. And I love it. Wow, I can’t even.

The guidebook that comes with the cards is everything you want to get you oriented in working with Celtic shamanism for yourself. I cannot shower this oracle deck with enough high praise, except to say you’ve got to try it to believe it. You can look forward to me posting a deck review of it this year, in 2019.

Review of the Wild Harmonic Oracle Cards

Wild Harmonic oracle cards from the genius of Gabriel Marihugh wow-ed me the first millisecond I saw it when Carrie Paris shared images of the deck. To my great fortune, Marihugh then reached out to me and asked if I’d like to review the deck. Heck yeah!

My only gripe with the deck– which isn’t even Marihugh’s fault– is it being published through GameCrafter. It’s probably not a big secret that I’m no fan of GameCrafter produced decks. I appreciate that it’s the most budget-friendly way to publish a tarot deck for creators, but… sigh. The dreamer in me keeps wishing for a better alternative to come along for creators who want to go the route of print-on-demand. Anyway, now that I’ve got that out of the way, we can focus on the deck.

This deck seems to be like a deck that U.S. Games or Llewellyn would certainly pick up and mass-publish. It’s got wide appeal, is really well done, and Marihugh has produced a wealth of written content to go along with the cards. It’s an oracle deck system that has been brilliantly thought through and captures the adoration of beginner oracle card readers and seasoned practitioners alike.
