Mystical and Magical Moon Oracle of the Sidhe
If, like me, you're fascinated by the "wee people", the Fae, also known as the Sidhe, then you'll love the Moon Oracle of the Sidhe by John Matthews with art by Wil Kinghan. I suggest ordering this marvelous and very mystical deck straight from Hallowquest's site if you want the guidebook because if you order it from Amazon you only get a link to download it and then you have to print it yourself if you want a hard copy. My copy came within a week, so it's not a bad wait for mail from the UK to US, and of course it will be faster if you're in the UK.
This is a very special channeled deck because it's channeled by the Sidhe themselves. You have to read the guidebook to get the full story of John Matthews' experience, but it's something you can feel as you do. I also suggest getting the first part of his journey and reading it, detailed in his book The Sidhe. You can order that from Amazon if you have Prime and read it before you get your deck, or order them together from Hallowquest, but but I highly recommend both for rarely do we get such a detailed insight into an encounter with the Sidhe, and rare indeed it is to have such an encounter as John was fortunate enough to experience. The deck is the second part of his encounters, a continuation of what's detailed in the book after a break of a few years.
The deck itself takes you through a lunar landscape marked with glyphs that will trigger your subconscious to deeper levels than many other images, and I do swear that I can feel the energy of the Sidhe themselves emanating from them. They certainly have a very mystical and otherworldly feel, and just looking through the deck made the hairs on my body stand up a bit while making me feel that I was standing there looking down on the rocks under a Full Moon. When I did a reading, the messages flowed into my thoughts and there was no doubt as to the interpretation of the message.
I have a lot of decks in my collection, and the only other one that has come close to this experience is The Shaman's Oracle, also by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan. This latest collaboration is even more phenomenal and I highly recommend it.
By the way, I'm not receiving any direct benefit from sharing these links, nor have I been gifted anything, I'm sharing them because I truly love these products and feel the work of the Matthews' is of very high quality and I want others to be able to enjoy them too.
