No other job so deftly merges the transcendent with the tedious as motherhood. And mothers would be the first to admit they could always use a little support and guidance. So, in honor of all the moms in the world, here's the "Mother's Wisdom Deck." This beautiful kit features a full-color book plus a deck of 52 cards whimsically illustrated with universal symbols of empowered motherhood. Arranged into four suits--Natural Mother, Animal Mother, Ancestral Mother, and Divine Mother--these cards can either reveal a message (like Tarot) or simply provide moms with inspiration and wisdom for their lifelong journey.
