Inspirational Visions – Oracle Cards

Author and illustrator, Judy Mastrangelo, has created the most delightful set of oracle cards called Inspirational Visions. They come in a lovely box with a book to explain the meaning of each card.

I have only recently learned about Tarot Cards and their interpretations and the concept of oracle cards was totally new to me when I received this pack so I looked up the difference on the internet in case any of my readers are as inexperienced in this area as I am.

I found an article by Alexandra Svokos on elitedaily.com which explained the difference like this:

“You may already know how tarot cards work — or at least, what they are. A tarot deck is a classic set of 78 cards that fall under the category of major or minor arcana. From there, the cards are divided into four suits (Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles). Tarot cards are studied and interpreted by expert readers, primarily to speak to a person’s life story.

Oracle cards, on the other hand, are more free-wheeling from the set structure of tarot. An oracle deck can essentially be whatever the creator of the deck wants it to be — they pick how many cards are in it, what sorts of imagery it’ll use, and what purpose it’s supposed to serve. There are many different types of oracle decks that come in all shapes, sizes, and functions. The basic set-up is that they have images and words, along with a book that explains ways in which a reader should interpret them.”

My review of Inspirational Visions

The intention of these cards is to provide inspiration for insight for readers of the cards. Each card is beautifully made from good quality card and the illustrations are simply amazing. The message on each card is embellished and expanded in the accompanying booklet.

I selected a card from the pack and it was Alice and the White Rabbit. The message was “Follow adventure down the rabbit hole.

The expanded message is as follows:

Throw caution to the winds, and let your hair down. Join the Excitement of a new adventure.

Don’t be afraid to try something new and thrilling. Keep your eyes ope and protect yourself from mishaps, but enjoy every minute of the fun.

What a lovely card! I am thinking about it as I feel I have reached a crossroads in my life and have some big decisions to make over the next few weeks. I have always been over-cautious so this is an extraordinary card for me to have selected at this junction in my life.

This is a lovely idea and I do believe I will find these cards to be a wonderful source of inspiration for my daily life.

  2. Robbie, thanks so much for sharing my review link. Isn’t this deck lovely? It has good energy, as well! Your review is spot on. I’ve read one of Judy’s children’s books as well about the fairies. I want to plaster my walls with her artwork. May this deck help you discover more about your inner wants and desires! ❤

    1. Thank you, Colleen. I hope people will follow your link as you are far more expert than I am in this area. I think these cards are absolutely lovely and my mom and I will be selecting another pair tomorrow. It is nice for us to do this together.

      1. I love the inspiration. They say if you draw a card a day and journal your entries you will tune into your inner feelings more. It’s also a great way to write a book! Diana Peach once shared with me that she wrote a book by choosing a
        Rune stone each day. That’s pretty cool!

    1. Hi Liz, this is a lovely pack. The illustrations are gorgeous. I did some research on Tarot Cards for my new book, A Ghost and His Gold after being introduced to them by Jan Sikes and Colleen Chesebro. Oracle cards are also new to me but I also like this concept very much.

  3. Most unexpected, Robbie — and very much a treat. There are a lot of gorgeous oracle decks. This one is splendid. Thanks for the review.
    (A hint about my top-secret WIP — based on your remark, I think (HOPE) you will like what I’m working on. 😉 )

      1. I’ve been reading cards, tarot and others, since the mid 1990s. These look great. You might also look for the Osho Zen Tarot. It’s based on tarot, but it’s a lot like oracle cards too. Very easy to follow and beautifully illustrated.
