“The Messages from Your Animal Spirit Guides Oracle Cards are designed to help you clearly communicate with animal spirit guides in order to decipher questions you have about life, and access intuitive guidance to assist you along your journey. Each of these cards carries within it the essence of a particular spirit animal that most appropriately responds to your query or concern will show up.” – From the companion booklet
With this animal deck; Messages from Your Animal Spirit Guides Oracle Cards, shamanic practitioner Steven Farmer once again offers an accessible portal to the realm of animal totems and their valuable guidance.
With thick, textured cards reminiscent of engraved leather and woodburned art, this unusual 44-card deck presents an earthy, almost masculine energy that is both grounding and comforting.
From meerkat to cardinal, honeybee to platypus, the Messages from Your Animal Spirit Guides Oracle Cards provides wisdom from all manner of mammals, as well as fowl, insects, reptiles and water dwellers.
Measuring approximately 5 x 3 ½ inches, these cards depict a unique rendering of a particular animal, as well as a brief message at the bottom. At first, I thought the imagery somewhat crude (loose water colouring or airbrush strokes are combined with occasional bold lines), but as I began to work with this deck, I discovered that the artwork evoked a vague dreaminess—perfect for shamanic journeying and obtaining insight from the animal spirit realm.
