During the workshop 'Wheel of life' we use a variety of cards to obtain deeper insights from the subconscious mind.
In this blog article I would like to introduce a small selection of my card collection that are used at the workshop and are very suitable for shadow work.
VINTAGE WISDOM ORACLE
The Vintage Wisdom Oracle is a beautiful 52-card oracle deck created by Victoria Moseley, who was inspired by vintage French postcards.
The cards depict goddesses, muses, birds, flowers and other vintage images in beautiful sepia colors and are rich in symbolic details offering many evocative insights and timeless feminine wisdom.
DARK GODDESS ORACLE
Barbara Meiklejohn-Free, Flavia Kate Peters and Kate Osborne's Dark Goddess Oracle Cards are designed to shed light on what life lessons can teach.
In my practice they are often used to gain deeper knowledge of who you are and how to face the emotional challenges of life. Each card provides an intimate opportunity to embrace both the shadow and the light of your character.
THE ORACLE OF SHADOW AND LIGHT
Australian author Lucy Cavendish has joined forces with world-renowned fantasy artist Jasmine Becket-Griffith to create this card deck.
Based on the wisdom of fairies, spirits, ghosts, angels, ancients, witches, entities, mermaids and historical beings, the 45 beautifully illustrated cards provide deep insights and help develop your inner strength and intuition.
ORACLE OF THE SHAPESHIFTERS
The Oracle of Change contains 45 richly illustrated cards. Each card has both real and mystical animals; like wolves, owls and spiders, or dragons, phoenix and unicorns. These beings are not alone, they are coming into their human form and they are here to help you say goodbye to all that no longer serves you and transform into something new. These changes can be internal or external, mental, spiritual, physical or emotional.
It is up to you what you want to change.
The wisdom of magical transformers - once the mystical allies of shamans, witches and wizards possess the hidden knowledge of camouflage, invisibility and metamorphosis. They are ready to share their very honest, truly instinctive guidance for personal and planetary times of transition.
These trustworthy companions will lend you their courage, show you new paths, help you make new discoveries, spark your creativity, inspire and encourage you, and learn to develop your skills to adapt and change.
THE HALLOWEEN ORACLE
Unleash your inner monster and trick your way into a connection to the most magical and scary night of the year: Halloween! Festivals of 'Death' like Halloween have been celebrated in many different world cultures for thousands of years.
They serve to honor those who have passed away and to celebrate death as a natural part of life and an opportunity to welcome new beginnings.
The 36 richly illustrated cards depict the power of black cats, vampires, zombies, witches, werewolves, skeletons and mummies in warm color palette.
And now I would love to hear from you. Which cards catch your attention? Which cards would you like to work with to illuminate your shadows?
