Written and Illustrated by Miranda Gray, the Beasts of Albion Oracle offers a unique and powerful divination system. Containing forty richly illustrated oracle cards depicting animals from both the natural world and mythology, the deck is intended to inspire connection to the primary animal archetypes that govern our everyday life, and the guidance to help the reader find their own totem animals.
Britain enjoys a long, rich tradition of animal lore that date back to the earliest times. Even today we see the fox as sly and cunning and the cat – with its ‘nine lives’ – as being somehow enchanted. The Beast of Albion Oracle shows readers how to harness the power of the animals featured in the deck, and how to channel it into improving the quality of their lives. The deck also offers insight into how the reader may discover their own animal totem and companion animal, whose strengths and abilities may be called upon in times of need.
The Beasts of Albion Oracle features beautiful portraits of all 39 of the featured beasts, including a blank card to use if required, while the accompanying guidebook presents a wealth of myth, legend and natural history for each of the animals. The guidebook also explains how to read the cards, using and the suggested spreads to identify their strengths, abilities and needs in particular areas, and how to explore the symbology of the animals on a deeper level by following the Spiral Path.
