Description

A divination tool to connect with guides from the Egyptian pantheon

• A 35-card deck with original artwork by award-winning illustrator Kris Waldherr

• Guidebook includes detailed card interpretations and 8 divinatory spreads

• By the authors of Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt: Awakening the Healing Power of the Heart

The Anubis Oracle is a shamanic guide to inner Egypt, a place of mystery, ancestral wisdom, and abiding love that resides within each of us. It is a place where the neteru--the archetypal deities and elemental spirits from the Egyptian pantheon--lead us on our journey of transformation, a journey designed to open our hearts and teach us the inner workings of the soul.

The full-color deck contains a Key Card, a card for each of the 22 deities and 4 elements, and 8 composite cards that portray several deities together. These composites represent 8 major portals of initiation and complex archetypal relationships. The accompanying book provides detailed interpretations for each card and instructions for 8 divinatory spreads that include entering into the mystery, achieving higher love and wisdom, and identifying our sacred purpose. By divining with the neteru, the shaman within awakens. This allows the neteru to reveal the answers we seek in our personal lives and in our interactions with the world by connecting us with the wisdom, guidance, and shamanic mysteries of Egypt that live within us.

"What's really fun and interesting about this deck is that it is based on the mysteries and knowledge of Egypt, so if one is not familiar with these, this is a chance to learn something new."

"As a big fan of Nicki Scully's books on journeying with animal spirits, I eargerly embraced this deck, created with her clairvoyant colleague in shamanism, Linda Star Wolf, and artist Kris Walkherr. Its are has all the soft, open color and popular appeal we've come to expect from Walkherr, known especially for her Goddess Tarot. This is a lovable oracle."

"A lush journey into the mysteries of ancient Egypt, this deck takes the reader on a quest of self-knowledge. The advanced user will enjoy the rich imagery and the depth of care and understanding utilized to create each fully realized aspect of the deck, while the beginner can use the images to advance her own understanding of greater mysteries."

They offer us a luminous understanding of the great archetypal principles that formed and informed ancient Egypt and that are part of the organizing patterns of the cosmos.”

“A work rich in tarot resonances--cosmological, psychological, spiritual, emotional, and symbolic--focused directly on the sacred science of Egypt where tarot almost certainly has its roots. In a sense, The Anubis Oracle is more original than the original. An intriguing and convincing concept.”
