The Astrological Oracle

I don't tend to collect oracle cards, but this set was too beautiful to pass up.  I'm going to give anything published by Lo Scarabeo a chance, one way or the other, anyway.  Their taste in material is stellar.

This deck is called "The Astrological Oracle" and it features artwork by Antonella Castelli in the art nouveau style.  Here are the cards.  It covers the planets, the zodiac, and the moon and sun:







You're supposed to lay out the cards in a circle, and use the included instruction booklet to learn what each planet or sign of the zodiac will mean in regard to your situation.  It gets pretty technical....you have to figure out which influences matter in accordance with the way the cards are laid out, and there's all kinds of stuff with houses, and symbols, and planetary positions....  Way too complicated for me.  People are always surprised when they find out I'm a tarot reader who doesn't cotton to astrology.  All I know is if you have to do math to figure it out, it's no fun.

I'd recommend these cards if you like to collect decks.  They are truly beautiful, and oversized cards are always neat to have.  And if you like astrology, I'd definitely recommend them.

May Full Moon - Flower


May's full moon is called the Flower Moon for obvious reasons.  April showers bring May flowers.

This month's full moon is sometimes also referred to as the Full Corn Planting Moon, and also the Milk Moon.

Tomorrow night is going to be extra special because it'll be 2012's "Super Moon", the biggest and brightest full moon of the year.  Hopefully it won't be cloudy!
