Santa dropped an early Christmas gift at my door, this morning; the "Wisdom of the Trees Oracle" by Jane Struthers. I've always been a big tree-hugger, and this is one deck that was sorely missing from my posse. I haven't sat down and properly got acquainted yet, but from what I have seen so far, this is one deck I don't regret purchasing. The imagery is beautiful, yet simple. It's not overloaded with symbolism, which is what I prefer. There is just enough information to "connect" with the tree's essential energies.
Unfortunately, my anal-retentive-perfectionist-self as already picked up on a booboo; the Indian Bean card has been misprinted as "Indian Beam". It's something I managed to remedy quickly with a sharp x-acto knife. This sort of hiccup makes me shake my head; I'm an amateur tarot/oracle artist and yet, prior to having my Viking Lenormand printed through Printer Studio, I revised each and every card several times before giving the printer the go-ahead... Why can't these big companies do the same? How can such a silly little mistake get passed unnoticed? Anywho... Time to whip out the old journal and start writing up about the feelings, dreams and energies I pick up from each cards. :)
