Archetype Cards – Caroline Myss
This deck is excellent for helping you to see where you are playing out common archetypes and whether you are playing out the shadow or the light attributes. I love using this deck to look at my divine feminine and masculine energies to see where they both are and make any adjustments if necessary.
Astrology Reading Cards, Your Personal Guidance From the Stars – Alison Chester-Lambert
If you love astrology and want to learn more, but aren’t a big fan of the rigidity of a birth chart or transits, this will deck will allow you to access the energies of the planets, signs, and houses in a more free-flowing way. I also found myself pleasantly surprised by the descriptions included in the book. They provided unique insight to energies I’ve been working with for years, so know you will find something valuable here.
The Power of Surrender Cards – Judith Orloff, M.D.
Being an embodiment of divine feminine energies, learning to let go and let flow has been a reoccurring theme for me. Maybe you can relate? This deck is a gentle way to allow yourself to find more ease through surrendering. Often times though, we don’t know what we need to surrender as we try to navigate different messages and insights we get from ourselves and the world. This helps you to lovingly focus and cut out the outside noise.
Trust Your Vibes Oracle Cards, A Powerful Tool Kit for Awakening Your Sixth Sense – Sonia Choquette
This is one of my first oracle decks and I immediately loved how it gave actionable steps while keeping things spiritual and woo-wonderful. If you are looking to explore your intuition or enhance your relationship with your energetic body this is a great deck to get. If you need a little more direct guidance on how to care for you, you will find that in these cards. Sonia is a wonderful soul with powerful insight!
Gaia Oracle, Guidance, Affirmations, Transformation – Toni Carmine Salerno
This is a very earthly deck, one that invites you into the depths of the brown soil and then to the heights of the green leaves of the trees around you. I find the messages to be very poetic in nature, and this deck isn’t afraid to support you through challenging times. If you want to connect deeper with your divine feminine and your connection to Mother Earth, I highly recommend this deck.
Soulful Woman Guidance Cards, Nurturance, Empowerment & Inspiration for The Feminine Soul – Shushann Movsessian & Gemma Summers
If you are looking to engage in the softer sides of your Feminine, this deck will gladly guide you through it. This is a deck that really speaks to the gentle hearted in me, both encouraging the loving flow of self, but also reminding me that boundaries are important to maintain. It also has an amazing collection of artwork. If you want to be moved by the feminine love and beauty and learn to grow this area strong and tall, I couldn’t recommend this deck more.
Medicine Cards, The Discovery of Power Through the Ways of Animals – Jamie Sams & David Carson
This deck was a gift from a client, and from the very first card pull (The Lizard!) I was amazed. There are a lot of messages out there from animals, but I find that this collection of messages encourages understanding in a totally unique way. The stories are memorable ways to engage your inner child as you find a deeper sense of empowerment. And, if you live in North America, you may find that you don’t even need to pull a card to hear a message from this deck. I carry the accompanying book with me often because it’s messengers are always ever present.
Mystical Cats Tarot – Lunaea Weatherstone
This is the newest tarot deck to my collection, and I am in love with it’s energy and art. I am a cat mama, so connecting to the spiritual guidance of cats is an incredibly important thing for me. If you have love for a cat in your heart, you will find this deck to be humorous, realistic, and inspiring as each card puts you in the perspective of your four legged furry friends in order to see things from a different angle. Finding a good Cat Tarot deck was important to me, and I think I hit the jackpot with these!
This is my favorite deck to use for readings for others. The box of the deck itself depicts a mermaid turning up towards a beautiful glowing light, and I feel like this captures the energy of this deck well. Even when you get challenging cards to deal with, this deck will always encourage you to see the silver lining. The Minor Arcana are really simplistic, giving you only the suit, the number, and a key word. If you like to use the picture for inspiration in your readings, this may not be the best deck, however, I find that they offer a sort of blank canvas for each card to speak a different message each time I pull it. I’ve never had a deck of cards with so many meanings in them! The artwork on the back of the cards and through the Major Arcana are also simply inspiring!
The Rider Tarot Deck – Arthur Edward Waite
This is the classic tried and true tarot deck. If you are a beginner and want to learn about the roots of tarot, I highly recommend this deck!
