The theme of this oracle is the garden, referring not only to a literal garden but to our amazing planet with all of her earthly and cosmic states of material and immaterial flux. My inspiration, as always, is the nature that surrounds me in the Pacific Northwest part of North America where I live, as well as the need to create imagery that is both meaningful and healing. Many of the paintings are specifically related to personal experiences, intuition, and a deep-rooted exploration of the spirit.
Created with a combination of mixed-media painting techniques and collage, each card is hand-made and given a keyword that references some aspect – or facet, if you will – of life in this garden. The deck is accompanied by an accordion-folded booklet that interprets the keywords with succinct meanings which are metaphorically related to human circumstances. The title of the deck refers to the many faces, like a faceted jewel, that can be encompassed in any given situation.
The Faceted Garden Oracle was completed in the Spring of 2020 at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. Knowing the enormous impact this has had on so many people worldwide, it’s my wish to share something of beauty and connection with those who use this deck. Thank you so much for viewing my campaign and I hope you will consider helping me bring this project to fruition!
- The Faceted Garden Oracle contains 50 cards printed on 350 gsm cardstock with a UV matte finish.

- The guide is a 10-page accordion-style booklet that gives brief associations for each card.
- Makes a great companion deck to The Illuminated Earth Oracle and can be easily integrated with other tarot and oracle decks.
