Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards
Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
I was gifted this set of cards some time ago.
This is a set of 44 cards by Doreen Virtue, each card focusing on a different Goddess from a wide range of pantheons - Celtic, Mayan, Egyptian, Greek, Tibetan, Buddhist and a whole host of others.
The cards themselves are beautiful, the back of each one is a bright yellow with a crown in the centre and the edges of the cards are shiny gold. The artwork is beautiful, each card showing a picture of the Goddess below the name, then a keyword, then a phrase relating to the card.
You can do readings with the cards as you can with most Oracle sets or just draw a card a day. Each card gives you a message to help you improve your life, your situation and your spiritual path.
The accompanying book has messages from each Goddes, along with various meanings for each card and then a little bit about each Goddess.
A friend also suggested to me that the cards are also good for use on altars as a focus for that Goddess, I think they would also be useful when calling upon a Goddess in ritual or to do a working, you could use the card as a focus.
If you aren't set on working with a particular pantheon then this is a lovely set of cards.
The card I drew today was Abundantia - Prosperity.
"The universe is pouring its abundance out to you. Be open to receiving"
Message from Abundantia:
Asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness. You are very powerful, and I am here to support your growing power. It's right for you to receive this help, as we function as a team. I've heard your prayers, worries and affirmations. I'm pouring my cornucopia of prosperity upon you now, so expect unforeseen windfalls and gifts. Notice the new ideas, feelings and visions within you. This guidance gives you clear direction about actions to take in conjunction with my assistance. Together, we're unstoppable!
Various meanings of this card:
Be open to receiving.
A new windfall of money is coming to you
You have nothing to worry about
Your new venture will be financially successful
Visualise and affirm abundance
Abundance comes to you in many ways, including extra time, support and ideas
About Abundantia: (pronounced Ah-bun-DON-she-uh)
Abundantia is a beautiful Roman and Norse goddess of prosperity, success and abundance who is said to bring good fortune and financial windfalls to all who call upon her. She carries a cornucopia of golden coins, which trail behind her wherever she goes. One sign that she's with you is that you'll find lots of spare change in unlikely locations. And rest assured that Abundantia brings more than pocket money to those who call upon her. She bestows all kinds of prosperity, including increased amounts of time, ideas and other forms of support.
I think I like her!
