Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
This fascinating deck will keep Froud fans delighted for hours. Once seekers are ready to actually start communicating with faeries, they will also be delighted with Macbeth's whimsical, yet highly informative, guidebook. She is quick to sympathize with the self-consciousness that comes with talking to faeries, yet she also has the ability to jolly people out of their embarrassment. Macbeth is at her wisest when discussing how to ask for guidance and interpret specific layouts of oracle cards. But if you find yourself succumbing to giggles in the midst of all this faery woo-woo, take heart. Writes Macbeth, "Giggles are the grace notes of faery music." --Gail Hudson

Each of the Oracle cards have it's own personality and feel. When you go through the deck, you will find faeries that you are drawn to and faeries that you are not drawn to. These are important to note to yourself. These Oracle cards are not like Tarot cards. Tarot cards tend to be 'serious' and uptight. The meanings are harder to develop on your own. With these Oracle cards, the Faeries encourage you to laugh, sing, cry, do whatever you like. There are no rules, only that you feel comfortable with the cards and the message the Fae may be sending to you.
Also, if you purchase these cards, or if you are curious to what more people think (who own the cards), you should check out the Faeries' Oracle e-group. ...
The magic is in you as the author points out in the first few pages of the hardcover book, she is so right. The book goes on to learn you how to pick out your power cards, to learn what each card means, and to really ask HONEST questions about how you feel about the images etc. Having the book Good Faeries/Bad Faeries is not necessary, but if you do have this beautiful book as well, you can really get into understanding faeries as the author and Mr. Froud elegantly state.
In all the oracle is telling you to really embrace and enjoy life to the fulliest -- sing, dance, etc. as these acts brings faeries into your life. You will love this book/card set and will cherish it forever. Pixel dust is in this item for sure!
The 200-plus page text by Jesa MacBeth skillfully weaves the reader into a faery tapestry of pure energy, divine spirits and absolute fun. For those readers whose experience has been limited to traditional Tarot, be prepared for an adventurous excursion into the enchanting world of faeries, including their incredible sense of humor!
MacBeth's explanation of faeries, their world and their feelings about humans are an education for those of us new to their realm. If you feel some trepidation in launcing into this oracle, don't! The book gently guides you every step of the way - - and believe me, the faeries will be cheering every step of your journey.
The art work, of course, is superb. Froud fans will love the unique faces and garb of his oracle population. Of the many groups of cards, my absolute favorites were "The Singers of the Realms" - - abstract paintings which depict the most beautiful, life-filled energy you'll see in an oracle. I don't think there's a card in the deck I like more that "She of the Cruach" - - the Great Goddess of nurturing energy.
When your deck arrives, sit down with a cup of hot tea. a biscuit for unseen guests, and an open heart. This is one oracle you'll return to time and again - - it speaks directly to the heart.
The artwork on the cards in absolutely stunning! I really love it. Froud is a wonderful artist. The expressions on the faces of the faerie are so telling of what the card means. This is not like tarot, where you have to figure out what one man standing alone on a hill is supposed to mean. This deck is so much easier to interpret, especially if you want to make up your own meanings instead of going by the book's definitions.
Jessica MacBeth gives a wonderful exercise in the beginning to teach you how to interpret a few cards. I was extrememly impressed by the results I received by answering the simple questions she asked. I was able to make sense out of even the abstract cards! I have a lot of trouble doing this with my tarot deck. I won't give away the secret of what happens after you do this exercise, but I can tell you that it was wonderfully insightful.
I was so impressed with the deck and book, I immediately joined Jessica's internet mailing list to discuss the deck with others. I highly recommend this oracle to anyone interested in divination, faeries, or if you just love Brian Froud's artwork! The combination of the three plus the wonderful book by Jessica MacBeth is really something else!! You won't regret buying this! :)
