PostSubject: Goddess Oracle Cards   Tue Jun 16, 2009 9:35 am

I had never had my cards read before.

But I spent this weekend with some friends who love fantasy as much as I do and one of them had a new deck and offered to read my cards.

Her card deck was beautiful.

She told me to shuffle the deck. I intended to shuffle them three times which is what I normally do with playing cards. She pulled the card from the bottom and told me she had to read it because the card was 'refusing to shuffle and wanted to be read'.

It was goddess Coventina, the goddess of purification.

I then pulled four more cards from the deck and handed them to my friend.
They were:

goddess Sedna, the goddess of infinite supply
goddess Kuan Yin, the goddess of compassion
goddess Saraswati, the goddess of divine arts
goddess Sekhmet, the goddess of be strong

She was surprised when she turned the cards I had handed her. Because all five card were laid out right side up. She told me that when cards are upside down, it means the person being read is having difficulty or issues with whatever is represented by the card.

It was an interesting experience ... and fun.

Were they Doreen Virtue's deck of Goddess cards, or someone elses?

There are certainly a great number of different decks out there. My Tarot deck is probably one of the most generic!

What deck do you have Zada? I started with the Universal Rider-Waite. I have accumulated many since then.

I blelieve that is the deck I have. It isn't near where I am at the moment, or I would check. I was given a swedish deck years ago, but did not like it. It did not feel right in my hands, so. I gave it away.

I don't know. I will send her a message and ask.

I know there are many types of decks out there. But I don't know which is which.

Doreen's are the most popular and she has several. I only have one of hers. They are not tarot decks. But they can do the same thing if the person knows what they are doing.

I like Sonia Choquette's decks. Two of them are about trusting your vibes. Steven Farmer's are on animal power and spirit animals. I could go on and on, but I won't. *grin*

Has anyone ever seen The Medicine Cards? They are based on the Native American teachings about animals. They are beautiful and the book that accompanies the cards tells about the positive and negative aspects of each animal and how the characteristics manifest in humans as well.

Merri, they were my very first deck! I went to the bookstore to get a regular tarot deck and the ones I ended up buying were flawed. When I returned them I got the Medicine Cards instead. I still use them to this day. Steven Farmer's deck is similar with more animals. I have learned so much about animals and the reason they come into our lives because of that first deck.

Do you use them often, Merri?

I do! I have found them incredibly useful and highly accurate. I tend to ask questions such as, "What do I need to focus on today?" "What does my mom need most from me during our next visit?" "What area of my life needs a bit of work?"

There was a portion of time years ago when I kept drawing the Armadillo card, which has a lot to do with boundaries. I found out I didn't have any!!! Every time I thought I was making progress, I'd draw that dang Armadillo card again and I knew I had more work to do. Very Happy

A Native American read my cards using that deck, and it was pretty acccuraqte. The only ones I remember though, were the wolves and bears. It has been quite some time ago, so maybe it's time to have them done again.
