Review of the Labyrinth Wisdom Cards

Labryinth Wisdom Cards 01 Box Set
It was love at first sight, between me and the Labyrinth Wisdom Cards by Tony Christie. You can buy the deck here, and check out some videos of the deck creator here and here. Definitely watch the videos.

Labryinth Wisdom Cards 02 Cards

Tony Christie is an author, inspirational speaker, artist, spiritual healer, and labyrinth designer. The labyrinth is an ancient symbol that is over 4000 years old, and what it is in a nutshell is a winding, circular path from a perimeter outer point to the center, or the heart of a matter.

Use the labyrinth as a form of walking meditation. You ask a question before the walk, hold that issue in your mind, then walk the labyrinth and when you reach the center, the revelation will come to you.

Likewise, the Labyrinth Wisdom Cards are intended to operate in the same way. Hold an issue in your mind, then pick a Labyrinth Wisdom oracle card, and see what the labyrinth card has to say to you.

Let’s give it a try. Think of a question or issue that you’d like an answer for. Hold that matter in your mind through the course of this post, before selecting a card, and then at the end of the post, you’ll select one of those three Labyrinth cards.

Eternal Crystals Oracle Cards 04 Box Cover Open

No complaints here about the packaging. You’ve got a sturdy, high-gloss deck with an equally impressive companion guide.

Let’s start by having you choose a card, shall we? See below. Choose a card– left, center, or right, and remember which position you chose. We’ll revisit this reading later.

Eternal Crystals Oracle Cards 05 Three Cards Select

The deck features mesmerizing photographic art, mostly abstract, and selected I’m guessing in large part to invoke color therapy. These cards are incredibly calming to gaze at. Cutely, I sort of used this deck as a checklist of the gemstones I have in my collection. In the below selection of cards, I’m missing apophyllite, cerussite, and chiastolite, admittedly stones I’ve never even heard of before.

Eternal Crystals Oracle Cards 10 Cards

The imagery for each card is specifically selected to facilitate a connection between practitioner and the crystal in question, and by concentrating on that connection, you can experience the healing vibrations of the crystal… or so goes the companion guidebook.

The Arthur Rackham Oracle Cards

Arthur Rackham Oracle 01 Card Set

The Arthur Rackham Oracle Cards is a self-published deck by Doug Thornsjo through his company, Duck Soup Productions. It’s one of several in his Playroom Oracles series. The oracle deck is conceived by Thornsjo using public domain prints of Arthur Rackham’s illustrations.

Arthur Rackham was an English illustrator with an artistic style that is now considered iconic of the late Victorian and Edwardian eras. Rackham drew with pen and ink (my personal favorite in terms of media for tarot art), watercolor, and–as was common for many Western book illustrators of the time– blended European traditions with Japanese wood block art. You see this same influence in the illustrations of Pamela Colman Smith (who illustrated the RWS deck by A. E. Waite).

Most of Rackham’s art appeared in illustrated fairytale books, from Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm (1900, republished 1909), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1908), and Peer Gynt (1936), which were three books that Thornsjo took most of the imagery for this oracle deck from.

This oracle deck is easily one of my favorites in its execution. I love the keywords, the italicized captions, the layout design for the cards, the selected Rackham illustrations, and the balanced levels of intelligence and creative artistry.

Daily Guidance from Your Angels Oracle Cards: Review

Daily Guidance Oracle (Virtue)

I’ve been meaning to work with and try to understand angel oracle cards and what better introduction to the phenomenon than through Doreen Virtue’s Daily Guidance from Your Angels oracle cards!

There is also a related sister book that was published one year after the deck, Daily Guidance from Your Angels: 365 Angelic Messages to Soothe, Heal, and Open Your Heart (Hay House, 2007), which can be used as an oracle tool in the form of bibliomancy or for daily guided meditations. In this post I will only be reviewing the 44-card deck, Daily Guidance from Your Angels (Hay House, 2006).

Daily Guidance Oracle (Virtue) - Box and Deck

It’s a 44-card deck, 3.375″ x 4.875″ in dimension, with a semi-gloss finish, good, heavy cardstock, and gold gilded edges. The box is just as sturdy, again with a semi-gloss finish. As with most Hay House oracle card publications, Daily Guidance comes with a perfect-bound companion Guidebook and the package is a complete system that you can start using as soon as you get it, no learning curve required.
