I finally bit the bullet and purchased my first ever Doreen Virtue deck. I’ll be real here, a lot of the artwork in her decks just doesn’t resonate with me personally. I’m not super into angels or faeries, so her decks didn’t really draw me in. But this particular one drew my attention on a day I was feeling particularly woo-woo, and let me tell you, I am HOOKED.
I LOVE the imagery of these cards. Like super love. Some of them resonate with me more than others, and I’ll post a few of my favorites below. I am just so into the feminine power of this deck. It isn’t overly “girly” but is straight up divine feminine, if that makes sense. Every single card I have drawn at random from this deck I have so resonated with. In fact I even have a card stalker from this deck right now that has turned up in every reading I’ve done for myself, and not even once in readings for other people. (It’s Ishtar, who is about setting boundaries. Go figure.)
I wasn’t sure if the whole “goddess” thing would gel with me at first. I’m new to this woo-woo stuff, and being raised a strong Catholic, Goddesses are about as far from my comfort zone as possible. Some people use this deck to pray to those Goddesses, I guess, but for me it’s about embodying the spirit. I don’t interpret the cards as direct messages from Goddesses, but rather as what role-models I should follow in my daily life. It’s less of a literal interpretation and more of “what spirit should I focus on embodying today.” The Goddesses are examples of life lessons or energies that I should be looking out for in my daily life.
So as far as my first oracle deck goes, I am hooked. It’s so much less complicated than tarot (But I still love tarot) and I feel that reading oracle cards just takes less energy. I don’t find it as draining as reading tarot. But on the flip side, I find that the messages aren’t as deep or complex. So for me it isn’t a replacement for tarot, but rather a different tool in my woo-woo tool box that I can use to develop my intuition and insight. Long story short, I LOVE them!
Here are a few of my favorite cards:
And one card for you!
Love and light!
