Design and Artwork
The “Woodland Wardens Oracle Deck & Guidebook” by Jessica Roux is a beautifully crafted 52-card oracle deck, inspired by woodland flora and fauna. Each card features a unique animal-plant pairing, such as the hare and the oak or the finch and the peach, depicted in Jessica’s historically evocative style. The design of the card backs, important for reading reversals, is cleverly done to not reveal the orientation of the cards.
Symbolism and Themes
Drawing on mythology, folklore, and literature, this deck transcends traditional oracle decks by incorporating the depth of tarot-like symbolism and reversals. Each pairing carries its own message, inviting reflection and offering guidance. The deck’s inclusion of reversals adds a layer of complexity and depth, appealing to those who value this aspect in card readings.
Users are drawn to the deck’s unique blend of Tarot and Oracle elements. The quality of the card stock and the size of the cards are appreciated, making them durable and comfortable to use. The meaningful connections fostered by the intricate illustrations and thoughtful messages make this deck a favorite among users.
