Selecting a Card Deck

With so many card decks to choose from, selecting a deck for yourself, or as a gift, can be a little overwhelming. We hope the following information offers you some insight.

Affirmation Cards

Inspiration and Affirmation Cards

Some decks are designed for inspiration, with positive quotes or affirmations. These types of decks are probably the easiest to use – simply choose a thought or message for the day, or whenever you feel the need.

Oracle Cards

Oracle Cards

These usually come with a guidebook, as the author has designed them with a more structured system of divination in mind. It may be worth reading the guidebook to help you to decide if it is the best deck for you. If this is too complicated or time consuming, many people simply hold a question in their minds and then pick one, two, or three cards to give them an answer. If the answer is not clear, you may ask for clarification and pull one more card.

 

Angel Cards

Angel Cards

Angel Cards are a genre of oracle cards (see above) that depict angels. These cards work to connect us with, and/or channel, angelic vibrations. For this reason the readings and messages obtained through angel decks are always said to be positive and uplifting.

Tarot Cards

Tarot Cards

The Tarot is an ancient and relatively complex system of divination. Traced through the Hebrew culture and the Golden Dawn, it has a recorded history of more than 2000 years. Consisting of a deck of 78 cards, there is a very structured way that these oracle cards are designed to be read. Consequently, it can take a long time to learn how to interpret the Tarot, and you may require a more detailed guidebook to refer to whilst you learn. We recommend learning to read the tarot with either the Rider Waite or Mythic Tarot decks, as these are the easiest to work with. Although there are literally thousands of different Tarot decks available, in many cases the author has overlaid additional meaning to the cards, or the  illustrator has reinterpreted the images (often losing the original meaning of the card), making interpretation more complex for the beginner.

CDs

Music, Audiobooks, Meditation & Hypnotherapy CDs

Music is such a personal experience that we suggest you come in when you have time enough to sit and listen. With an iPad and headphones, you can explore our huge range of CDs and audiobooks at your leisure.
