Daily Intuitive Guidance for the Now Age
Each week, as I feel guided, I will feature a deck from my own collection, along with intuitive impressions from the cards at the time of drawing them, a suggested focus for the day (mantras) and a theme for the week. This week features Shaman's Oracle: The Truth Seeker's Oracle Cards for Ancient Wisdom and Guidance by John Matthews and Will Kinghan.
Why I love this deck: Right after I had received The Truth-Seeker's Tarot of the same collection, this deck came to me through series of synchronicity events. I was studying Micheal Harner's The Way of the Shaman and beginning to explore the practices as well when one of my soul-sisters had a give away of this deck on her facebook page and youtube channel to the first person to email her saying why I felt guided to it work with this deck. I felt guided to it work with this deck. I felt this pull and went for it and much to my surprise even though I gave it some time i was indeed the first one to send in a email. Three weeks later this deck was part of my collection. This deck helps connect with our ancestral nature, well worth exploring.
More about the card's tribe & it's positions in the Cave Oracle Glyph-
"Cave Oracle Glyph, which is a map of the shaman's universe that visually demonstrates the interaction between the realm of Spirit and that of everyday reality.
The palm of the hand represents the
Midworld: this is the spiritual dimension of our own world, a transitory space from where we can transcend the confines of the physical being."
-p. 10 of the Guidebook
It is from this realm that the Interactive cards operate.
"Branching out of the Midworld are the
fingers of the handprint. These represent
five Caves, which are gateways into the Spirit realm."
We will explore each cave and tribe in turn as the week progresses, starting from left to right.

What so special about this deck: "This new oracle includes 52 cards, a chart of the hand set against a rock face and an 80 page book called Using Shaman Oracle Cards: A Guide to the Shaman’s Universe which explains the powerful and insightful system of card reading linked to Palaeolithic cave art.
The Shaman's OracleThe underlying principle is that the human hand is an ideogram for the Cave Dweller’s world through which the Seeker journeys, or from which the spirits emerge. The 52 cards are divided into five tribes – Spirits, Ancestors, Hunters, Dancers and Shamans – each representing a different aspect of human experience. As the cards are drawn, they reveal an oracle that will help to guide the Seeker on his quest for answers."
"The images are not only very beautiful, but they also touch on the deepest memories we possess. The cave art is found all over the world; in Europe, China, the Americas and Australia."
"SPIRITS: The Tribe of Spirits are representations of the generally non-human forms . They are identified here by the symbol of the feathered fan, used traditionally to invoke ancestral blessings." -p.9 of the Guidebook
"I AM the Spirit of Family, I hold the heart of the family group in my hands, sheltering it and protecting it from harm and helping to bind together the elements it comprises. On every side I see relatives, both human and animal, that together form part of the greater whole. I reach out to your spiritual kin, to both ancestors and guardians, offering supports in the times of trouble, and resolution in times of conflict " -p.26 of Guidebook
Interpretations: Resolution in time of conflict, Seeking support of family members, Relatives lost and found, Sense of community, Importance of spitiual family.- p.26 of Guidebook
