I wanted to try out my recently acquired Magical Dimensions Oracle Cards.
This deck is created and published by an artist who goes by the name of Lightstar online, and can be purchased from her website. The deck comes out of the New Age and ascension paradigms, and perhaps reflects some of the creator’s immersion in the Sedona community. I bought it because I like visionary art and “painting with light” style, which was very appealing when I saw it online. (Also: see this guy’s art.)
This is a lovely deck to my eyes. I’m surprised it doesn’t get more attention on the larger online communities that generally gravitate to shiny and detailed styles of oracle cards. There’s a vibrancy and luminescence to the artwork, with colors that pop and feel very harmonious. It’s primarily a fantasy style.
Besides the style of the art, I like the fact that although it has a female’s touch, it is not an exclusively feminine deck. So many oracle decks are designed by, and for, women. That can mean lots of cuddly and delicate creatures, pastel colors, young girls or girl-like beings, gossamer, wispy pink clouds and nary a male in sight. I feel that this deck is more even in nature. Although it features a lot of females it feels balanced between the masculine and feminine aspects with its overall image compositions, which I think is approachable to the guys as well as the gals.
It also includes chakra cards, called portals in this deck for reasons the author explains in the included mini-book. I can only think of one deck I own that includes chakra-based cards, and it’s one I never seem to use. But I like the idea of chakra cards. I know I could map them to almost any deck, particularly the tarot, but it’s nice when they are available on their own.
