This gorgeous deck comes in a beautiful hard box with a book and cards enclosed inside. The book is written by Jhenah Telyndru who is also the founder of The Sisterhood of Avalon. She is the author of Avalon Within: A Sacred Journey of Myth, Mystery and Inner Wisdom and several other books.
I especially love the inspiring artwork by Emily Brunner. The cards are well thought out with loads of symbolism and Celtic imagery that will transport you to the holy isle of Avalon and back.
Unlike Tarot Cards, Oracle Decks do not use a set system of symbology. Oracle decks can vary greatly from one deck to the next. What is important when using oracle decks is to focus in on your intuition for what the card means to you personally. For that reason I find oracle decks can really be hit or miss for me. I absolutely love the imagery used in this deck. They have a very comforting feel to them. They feel as if I have always owned this deck.
Here is my first spread using the deck:
I drew The Five Seeds of Wisdom, The Three Cauldrons, and a goddess card Branwen. They are beautiful cards and really seem to speak to me on a deeper level. The cards I drew today just reaffirm that I am on the right path right now. I also picked up Jhenah Telyndru's book a few weeks ago. I have yet to finish it but I am enjoying it immensely so far.
