About the Decks

Below you will see the decks I have in my library and a little about them.  You will choose the deck you wish me to use for your reading - use whichever one feels right to you - or all of them!  If you can't decide, ask me to pick the deck that I feel will give you the best reading. 

Passion Play was conceived and created by Christine D. Winters.  The cards were drawn in less than three days with the help of her guardian angel Abraham.
Passion Play is not like any Tarot Deck you have ever seen.  There are no Major or Minor Arcana.  There are no Wands, Cups, Pentacles or Rods.
Each card consists of a title, place in time, element, and effective subject.  The deck was self-published and copyright 1995.
I have been getting accurate readings from this deck since 2005.

The Oracle of Shadows & Light was written by Lucy Cavandish and uses the artwork of Jasmine Becket-Griffith.  It was published in 2010 by Blue Angel Publishing and consists of 45 cards.

I have been very pleased with the readings I have gotten with these cards for the last year.  So much that I may pick up the next deck featuring Jasmine's work this year.
The Oracle of the Shapeshifters is the companion to the Oracle of Shadows & Light that just came out in Australia in August of 2011, and is not expected to be published in the U.S. until 2013!  I was lucky enough to get a copy directly from Jasmine Becket-Griffith at DragonCon.

Again, it is featuring Jasmine's artwork, written by Lucy Cavandish, and published by Blue Angel Publishing.  It also consists of 45 cards.

The Legacy of the Divine Tarot is an actual 78-card Tarot Deck.  It was written and beautifully illustrated by Ciro Marchetti.  Published by Llewellyn Worldwide and copyright 2009.

I have not had the opportunity to use this deck much, but it gives off fantastic energy!

The Amy Brown Faery Wisdom Deck is a 64-card deck featuring the artwork of, you guessed it, Amy Brown.  It was written by her mother, Nancy Brown and copyright 2005.  Published by Land of Myth and Not Inc.

I just recently got my hands on this deck.  Again, it is a deck that gives off good energy - but those are the only decks I will allow into my library.
The Druid Animal Oracle Deck is a 48-card deck beautifully illustrated by Bill Worthington and writen by Philip and Stephanie Carr-Gorram, the chief and scribe of the Order of Bards, Oviates and Druids.  Published by Connections in 2006.

This is a deck I have used in the past and passed on to a friend.  I recently re-obtained it.

The Druid Plant Oracle is a 36-card deck illustrated by Will Worthington and writen by Philip and Stephanie Carr-Gorram, the chief and scribe of the Order of Bards, Oviates and Druids.  Published by St. Martin's Press in 2008.

Beautifully done, I'm really looking forward to using this deck with you.
The Shadowscape Tarot is actually a 78-card Tarot deck featuring the artwork of Stephanie Pui-Mun Law.  The booklet was written by Stephanie and Barbara Moore.  Published in 2011 by Llewellyn Worldwide.

This is a deck obtained directly from Stephanie at DragonCon and her artwork is truely lovely in its flowing watercolors.

The Golden Tarot of the Tsar

This deck is Tarot, but not in the Rider-Waite tradition.  It is Eastern Christian in design with images of Bible stories and Saints and Angels depicted.  Growing up Christian, I actually find this deck a little easier to garner meanings from than most Tarot.

The Dark Grimoire Tarot

Images taken from the tales of horror and legend, this deck is an aid into the realm of shadows.  Wonderfully dark, I look forward to shuffling through this deck and learning its tales.

This is a method of divination that I've been dabbling in for a little while now.  It is another fascinating way of divining meaning from something that is around us every day...numbers.

While this is not a deck, it is a method that I can and will use for you.
Coming as soon as we can get it produced.

The Oracle of Fantasy & Myth is a 55-card deck that features the artwork of my husband, Rob Carlos.  The book that goes along with it is written by me.  We were hoping to get it produced this year, but it doesn't look like it is going to happen - yet.  I know that it will be made and I will eventually have a finished product in my hand to use for you.
