My Collection of Tarot and Oracle Cards

I’m still pretty new to the world of tarot, oracle cards and crystals but I’ve managed to accumulate a small collection of decks. About a year ago I was introduced to tarot and oracle cards by a friend and I was vert intrigued by it. I’ve always been drawn to the supernatural, astrology l and magic so it’s not surprising to me that I felt a pull towards tarot. Once I decided to start my journey into the world of tarot, I read up on the history, what certain cards meant and then what deck I should purchase first. After getting my first deck I became even more enthralled with not only reading tarot but with oracle cards as well. And so began my venture into oracle decks. Next thing I knew, I had a few decks and did a lot of readings for various friends and family members. Personally, I love using tarot and oracle cards for a bit of guidance and direction when I need it most. I also find that it’s a fun thing to do with friends! If you’re interested in trying tarot or oracle cards then I highly suggest you do! In the meantime, here’s a list of the cards I’ve bought and love.

The Wild Unkown Tarot

This was my first ever tarot deck! I liked the somewhat classic look of the cards and artwork, feeling that it would help me learn about the cards and their meaning. The guidebook was extremely helpful and I genuinely think this deck is perfect for beginners.

Work Your Light Oracle Deck

I fell in love with these oracle cards when I went on the artists Instagram page. The cards are so beautiful and I’m obsessed with them. I love what they represent and the messages that they convey. They’re easy to read and interpret which I love. I really enjoy using oracle cards alongside tarot cards, so I tend to grab for these quite often!

The Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards

I was first attracted to these oracle cards as I saw the YouTuber The Gem Goddess use them in one of her ‘pick a card reading’ videos. I’ve always been into goddesses and what they represent so purchasing this oracle deck felt like a good idea. The cards are pretty sleek and have golden edges, which I love. Each goddess conveys a message or meaning so I like using them with other oracle cards and with tarot cards. I feel like using more than one oracle deck at a time during a reading that reinforce a message that the universe is sending you, which is why I usually use a few different types.

Moonology Oracle Cards

I love how this oracle deck uses the moon and astrology all in one. I’ve always found that the light the moon creates illuminates my path more than the sun does. I’m very much a night owl so the moon gives me energy and peacefulness. The messages each card conveys is pretty clear and easy to understand. The artwork is cute and I love how each zodiac sign is represented. I bought them off Amazon so they are very easy to purchase. Overall, I’m definitely a fan!

The Moonchild Tarot

I’ve been loving using this tarot deck since buying it last year. The art work is stunning, I mean the images are so beautiful and I love how they well they correspond with the meaning behind each card. The artist created her own version of what a tarot deck should look like and I’m here for it. The guidebook is super helpful, especially since it goes so in depth on each card and on the deck itself, including the addition cards made specifically for this deck. These quickly became my favourite tarot cards and I highly recommend them!  

So that’s all for my personal tarot and oracle cards collection! I made sure to link each one so if you’re interested in buying them you can easily click and buy! I really love using all of these and I personally recommend them. If you’re like me and you’re still a beginner when it comes to this stuff then please reach out, I’d love to have a chat! Or, if you’re well-versed in the tarot world and have some advice for a newbie like me then I’d love to hear it!

My Monthly Favourites – January 2020 Edition

The first month of 2020 is over!! January has been an interesting month to say the least. I had a few moments were I was quite homesick and depressed. But that was to be expected with the lack of sunlight and me living so far away from my family & friends. But, it really ended on a great note. I’ve made a bunch of new friends, I’ve joined a writing group and I even got a few temp jobs to make some extra cash. Along the way, I’ve found some great things in January which made the month feel brighter.

Louis Tomlinson’s new album Walls

I’m so happy that Louis’ new album is finally out! I’ve been a fan of all the One Direction boys since 2011 so seeing them grow up and put out their solo music has been really emotional for me. I’m very proud of Louis for putting out this album and for him to have found his sound. The songs on the album are all great and I can’t wait to hear them live in March. My personal favourites on the album are Kill My Mind, Habit, Always You and Defenceless. Even if you’re not a big 1D fan you should check out Louis’ new album Walls because it’s genuinely really good!

LED Star & Ocean Light Projector 

I’ve been seeing these star and ocean light projectors online recently and I really wanted one. They seemed so relaxing and pretty. Since I’m still adjusting to a new country I figured that this projector would create a soothing environment. Once I got it I was pleasantly surprised. The lights are so pretty and really light up my bedroom. I love how it has a few different light settings. You can pick the main colour to be blue, green or red and you can decide if you want the ‘stars’ and ‘moon’ on top of the ocean-like lighting. After setting it up I showed my flatmates and they all loved the effect it has on my room! One might even buy one for her room. I have to say that I’m really happy I bought this projector because it chills me out at night and I find falling asleep to be much easier now.

The Moonchild Tarot

For those of you who aren’t aware, I love tarot and oracle cards! I think they’re super fun to play with and they can be a great thing to do when you’re in need of direction. Of course, I don’t live my life based off on what the cards say but I do like consulting them when I need some guidance from the universe. I currently have 3 Oracle card decks and 2 tarot card decks. The first one I got was the Wild Unknown deck which I do really like using. But, I saw some pictures on Instagram of the Moonchild Tarot deck and I knew I had to get them. The art work is absolutely stunning and the little booklet it comes with is so insightful. I love using this deck so much and I feel like I truly connect with it. If you’re into tarot cards I highly recommend the Moonchild tarot or her sister deck the Starchild tarot.

Waitress The Musical

I’m obsessed with musicals and I always jump on the opportunity to go see one. I got pretty lucky in January because my friends’ friend couldn’t go to a show and so I go to see Waitress in London for free! I did see Waitress on Broadway like 3 years ago but I was really keen to see it again. Plus, this time around I got to see Sara Bareilles as Jenna! Of course, it’s a great musical with fabulous songs and entertaining characters. All the performers have such great voices and it was a treat to watch them on stage. Since seeing the show again I’ve been listening to the soundtrack non-stop! If you get a chance to see Waitress you should definitely go because it won’t disappoint.

The Happiness Planner 

Journaling has always been something that I loved doing, however I got pretty bad at being consistent over the last few years. Plus, sometimes I didn’t know how to put into words what I was feeling. Then I found out about the Happiness Planner and how they have journals dedicate to different aspects of life and each ‘chapter’ has different prompts to help you organize your thoughts. I found that this was exactly what I needed, especially since I’m not currently in therapy I figured that these journals could act as a form of written therapy. I purchased the Explore Your Inner World Guided Journal Set I and was not disappointed. This set comes with 6 journals: Self-Awareness, Confidence, Purpose, Law of Attraction, Growth Mindset and Gratitude. Each journal has beautiful photos and quotes as well as many writing prompts that’ll help you revaluate your life. I’m definitely glad that I got these journals especially since moving to London, they’re very helpful when I need to gather my thoughts or just need some extra help with visualizing my future. If you like writing in journals or would like to start I totally recommend you try out this brand!

All in all, January was a great month for me and I’m sure I’ll having just as many favourites in February as I keep finding new things to love in London.

Stay rosy,
