I had an Oracle reading to do, and as I don’t use Oracle cards too often, I was a bit stumped as to which one to go for, usually I use the Faeries, but I decided to try a new to me deck called Oracle of the Dragonfae by Lucy Cavendish.
The cards are large, too big to shuffle easily, but as there are only 43 cards in the deck it isn’t too much of a problem to do variation of a hand to hand shuffle, keeping the cards face down rather than on edge. Big means you can see the details beautifully… although I still used my beloved magnifying glass just in case I was missing out with my myopic eyes. Personally I love the artwork, I love the legends behind the names. I haven’t entered the accompanying book yet, as I tend to read the cards intuitively, but I have looked up some of the myths and legends associated with the names. There are some Arthurian folk and I noticed Brighid, my Goddess, as I wandered through the deck.
I have posted a photo of the first reading I did, I particularly love the backs of the cards and they blend into my old very worn and ragged silk jacket so beautifully!! When it grows up it wants to be a Tarot Cloth!

I wont go into details of this particular reading here, as it was a perosnal reading for someone, but I am very impressed with this deck. I found the cards very intuitive to read without looking at the book at all. As well as being stunning to look at, the cards contain a rich and poetic tapestry of myth and magic.. lI shall let them take me where they will…….
