The Packaging

Red Feather are really on point with their packaging, again this deck comes in a beautiful compact box with a magnetic fastening and it opens like a book.

It looks lovely on the shelf!

The Guidebook

This is a really well put together little guide book. It is soft cover and has 112 pages.

There is lots of information in addition to the card meanings. There are spreads, information on how to prepare and use the deck as well as techniques for meditation, self appreciation and much more.

There is a double page for each card with a full colour image and key phrase on one page and the in depth card meaning and Affirmation on the other

The Cards

I have to start by saying these cards are absolutely stunning! The artwork is whimsical and immersive and I love every one.

The card backs are as beautiful as the fronts!

Each card has a name and a little key phrase which is brilliant, the messages are clear and there is so much to pick up intuitively from the art as well.

This Deck is full of positivity and an amazing tool for self development, love and acceptance. It gives lovely readings and would also complement Tarot spreads as well.

This beautiful Deck comes highly recommended from me, it will spread positivity through your readings weather you are reading for yourself or others.
