Father Christmas came early this year, I have acquired the latest addition to my oracle collection, Colette Baron-Reid's Wisdom of the Hidden Realms.
All I can say is, 'amazeballs'. The artwork is so rich, the images just speak for themselves. All the card artwork is by the artist Jena DellaGrottaglia, which gives a nice constant flow to them, which I like. I sometimes feel when the artwork on the cards are a collaboration of different artists, some cards in the deck just don't give me the vibe.
This could be why the Oracle of Shadows and Light, and Shapeshifters remain my favourite oracle decks as Jasmine Becket Griffiths artwork is consistant on both decks.
I have been having some 'getting to know you' time with each card and think the deck and I are going to get along well.
The Wisdom of the Hidden Realms cards use reversals, which I like, however the upright position is called an ally, and reversed is called the challenger.
Some of the cards are ally only, a few of the cards are both ally and challenger in the same instant, making it an interesting deck to read.
I can't wait to try them out properly and really get to know them, this is why I'm going to offer some free readings HERE in the coming days, so keep checking back if you would like to find out what these cards have to say to you.
