oracle cards

In 2013, I wrote about relearning tarot or at least updating my skills. Ever since I improved my skills, I find that I avoid doing readings on myself. I often find information (in the cards) that I wish I had not known.

Ignorance is bliss.

So for myself, I have oracle cards. Decks that are more like a friend giving you some good advice. I use them to give myself pep talks, to inspire myself, and to gain perspective. All of which is more about work from within than anything else.

For my birthday, I purchased a new oracle set called Messages From Your Animal Spirit Guides Oracle Cards by Steven D. Farmer. 

Back when I had an iPhone, I had the app version of these cards. I used the app for daily meditations. It was very disappointing when I found out my Galaxy Note did not have this available in their store. So, imagine my elation when I saw them in the IRL store!

The physical object is so much better. All 44 cards are thick, textured, and beautiful. The animals in most cases are ones that I do not usually see in totem sets. I really liked this and I almost wish there was a second version.

My only complaint is that texture, that feels so great in the hands, makes the cards hard to spread. They have a tendency to clump together. I use the spread and select by "vibes" method for all my decks. 

On a whim (and for this post) I decided that I would select a card to represent the internet as a whole. I was amused by the result.
