“Dreams of Gaia” cards, by Ravynne Phelan

Reviewed by Wendy Stokes

To Seek, to Feel, to Grow, to Heal!

Dreams of GaiaThe deck is designed for self awareness communication with the 'Divine Gaia', the Great Spirit of the natural world. As you work with the cards, a yes or no andwer is not provided as there are no definitive answers in life. This deck is more about learning about the self and about life itself, and when the cards speak, they provide options and possible solutions. Keeping a journal is suggested for best results.

Each card has an image, a title and a number and greater explanation from the guidebook provides key phrases, meanings, past present and future for the Major cards and a 'potential blockage' which is the term used for an in-depth reversed reading for that particular card. The deck is structured beyond the normal tarot deck for more advanced readings. There are 12 minor cards plus Queen and King. A number of card spreads are suggested. The Guide of 3 cards; the Dreamer's if 9 cards; The Dreaming Tree of 12 cards.

The Major Arcana titles are all different from the traditional titles and nothing is as you would expect! The Minor Arcana are divided into the 4 elements Fire, Water, Earth and Air. Deep, all black backs add an air of mystery before the card images are revealed.

I would give this deck a full ten stars for content. Working with Dreams of Gaia will change lives. It's not just a party pastime for tea and cake. When you get a reading from a competent reader using this deck, you will really learn something!
