Goddess Guidance Oracle

the "Healing with the Angels Oracle" that I already
own by Doreen Virtue. I never felt like getting much
use out of the healing with the angel cards, but with
this companion deck I think I will get more use out of
it. I am sure this will not bother Dr. Virtue as under
the title Multi-Card Readings she states that...
Goddess guidance Oracle Cards can be used in conjunction
with my other oracle cards, as they're all from the
same family of light and love. You can shuffle the
goddess cards in with my Angel, fairy..."
I'm not sure
about directly shuffling one oracle into the other
oracle as I know the goddess guidance cards are slightly
larger than the healing with the angel cards, but I find
using both oracles together very satisfying. It makes me
interested in maybe persuing the fairy deck in the future. I
find that the godesses form sort of a noun while the
angel cards complement her with an attitude of composure
or a verb.
What you actually see on the cards is any
number of different colors for a border. All of the
colors seem pastel. At the top there is the name of a
goddess, and a few key words for communicating with said
goddess. At the bottom there is a special message from the
goddess. In the middle there rests an artists rendering of
The companion booklet lists all of the
goddesses in alphebetical order according to their names. All of the information on the card is repeated. Then
there is usually a lengthy message from the goddess
spoken in the first person narrative (otherwise, when the
words "I will help you" are written the reader is
expected to assume the narrator is the goddess herself).
This is followed by a more brief listing called
"Various meanings of the card." This is pretty self
explanatory. It offers a few ways in which the card can be
Last, and my favorite part of the reading, is an
"about" this goddess segment. Here you are given the
proper pronunciation of the goddess' name, the various
cultures from which she sprang, and how she has interacted
with those who adore her.
It seems that many die-hard
goddess fans are disappointed by a lack of a "Hecate" or a
"Persephone" card. The whole drama fit around Doreen Virtue
seems to try to make her out to be like one of those
fundamentalists who thinks that we should do away with things like
television or industry and go back to a father abraham kind
of life. Most people would like to peg her as a kind
of a soccor mom v-chip fanatic who doesn't want her
"children" exposed to blood and gore. However, I have never
really seen anything to show that she is fighting against
the blood and violence of television programming or
the so called "dark deities" of spirituality. She is
projecting her vision much like those who would project a
vision with Proserpine. Nowhere does she insult
Persephone like those who would claim that Persephone must be
too dark for Dr. Virtue.
In conclusion, the deck
doesn't seem to be strictly goddess oriented as there is
the occasional fairy or "fairy goddess".
