Are you looking for a little bit of inspiration, hope, and light to start your day?
I like to wake up each morning and pull an oracle card from any of my decks that call out to me, which in turn, sets up the kind day I will have and the affirmation and focus of my day. I, personally, have three decks that I like to alternate between, and depending on my mood or circumstances surrounding me, I choose which deck will work for me that day. So, you might be thinking to yourself, what is an oracle deck? An oracle deck differs from a tarot deck quite a bit. An oracle deck has a set theme, to which each card has an illustration and either an affirmation, goal, or diety/person of which to meditate on. An oracle deck can also take on the image of anything you want- you can purchase any sort of deck for whatever your beliefs are. There are angel decks, goddess decks, Hindu decks, Jesus decks, Medicine Wheel decks, animal spirit guide decks, to just name a few! So, there is something out there for everyone and anyone.
My Top 3 Favorite Decks:
- The Moon Deck-
This was my first oracle deck, so I have a deep affection towards it. Whenever I post a photo from this deck on my Instagram, people want to know what deck it is and where it is from, so that is why it is first on this list. This deck has the inspiration of the moon, womanhood, sisterhood and sacred female circles. Each card has a whimsical watercolor, as well as beautiful affirmations that all women (and men!) can relate to such as “I shed habits that hinder my truth, I release and renew” and “I am on the right path, and divinely guided.” It comes with a beautiful guidebook, with descriptions for each card along with a ritual or mantra to practice for the card pulled. If you’d like to add it, you can also have a beautifully carved wooden box with the moon phases etched into it.
· 44 lovingly illustrated cards carrying potent mantras
· Accompanying booklet of insights, lessons, and rituals tailored to each card
· Handcrafted wooden box to store your new spellbinding tools
When used with intention, each card, mantra, and ritual works to unleash the magic within us all. If you feel called to know this power, we invite you to join our tribe and use this deck as a daily tool to help you look inward for the answers you seek.”
2. Seeds of Shakti Oracle-
I am in love with the Seeds of Shakti Oracle Deck, from the beautiful images to the theme surrounding it. I pull from this deck many times a week. These cards come into two different themes, masculine and feminine, which are mixed together but denoted on the back in white or black. It comes with 52 cards, and with that many cards, I like to pull two or three for the day. I like to ask “What do I need to know for today?” or “What should I focus on this day?” and then pull the cards. These cards give me insight for what to focus on for daily growth and healing. The cards are absolutely gorgeous in color and art, with watercolor paintings on each card. There are a handful of themes mixed without, such as Hindu dieties, the moon phases, spirit animals and even some foods and drinks. I also check the in depth guide book as well to elaborate on what the card’s affirmation says, and to get a deeper meaning of what I want to focus on.
3. The Goddess Oracle by Doreen Virtue-
I know that this is a favorite amongst many of you, and it is also one of my favorites as well. The Goddess Oracle is in my top three, and I use it on a weekly basis. I love the connection to the many goddesses and women within the deck, which range from all backgrounds and religions such as Christianity, Hinduism, Norse Mythology, Greek Mythology and more. Each Goddess has a message that pertain to what their philosophy is, and even of you aren’t a believer in their actual presence, the messages work for everyone and all have something meaningful and wonderful to instill. This deck, too, comes with a guidebook which gives you the background story of each Goddess, what they stand for, and what their message means and how it pertains to your life. This deck makes you really feel into your feminine energy, and connect to all the wonderful women who have come before you and have had something powerful to say in their lives/stories.
There are so, so many decks out there that can suit your individual needs and beliefs, and these are just my top 3 that I wanted to share with you all. These decks have spoken to me in a special way, and I allow them to guide me throughout my day and give me the inspiration to be a better person inside and out. Everyone can use a little inspiration each day, and thats exactly what Oracle Decks are designed to do. Let me know in the comments what your favorite oracle decks are, so I can check them out as well!
