Review: The Divine Feminine Oracle Deck

Just look at the luscious cards in the new Divine Feminine Oracle. The artist is Lisbeth Cheeve-Gessaman and her beautiful work really complements this thought-provoking and inspiring new deck, created by Meggan Watterson.

Publisher Hay House says on its website:
“Scholar, speaker, and author Meggan Watterson has gathered together the saints, mystics, gurus, and goddesses from the world religions who represent both divine beings and the human women who sought to embody them. Each of these sacred ladies, when called upon, can strengthen your capacity to hear your soul. From the unyielding love of Mary Magdalene to the transformational force of the goddess Kali, you will discover the expansive qualities of the divine feminine within you."
What I particularly like about this deck is that it depicts powerful female archetypes from a wide variety of religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. There are historical figures such as Sappho and Joan of Arc as well as divine women and goddesses. The artwork shows the beauty in all of them - whether young, old or immortal - while the descriptions of them in the book show how their stories can be empowering.

I think this deck works on many levels. You can certainly use it as an oracle, to get answers to questions and an indication of the forces at work in your life. You can also employ it as a regular reminder of the power of women all over the world and throughout history.

I've been using the deck every day since I got it and I have found it very helpful as a guide to what lies ahead and how to face that. Men can benefit from it too. My husband has picked cards a few times and said he found it inspiring. There's a touch of the divine feminine in all of us, whatever our gender.
