Nature-Speak Oracle

Circle Network Oracle Card Review: The Nature-Speak Oracle by Ted Andrews, published by Dragonhawk Publishing in a good quality box which contains 60 cards plus explanation booklet. Card size: 11.9 x 9.4 x 4cm
The cards are related to the ‘Green Kingdom’ and bear photos of nature within an oval frame. Cards bear titles and subtitles and are divided into 4 suits - ‘Landscape Oracles, such as beach, borderland, desert, forest, garden, hot spring, lake and pond; Flower Oracles, such as iris, gardenia, orchid, tulip; Seasons and Climate Oracles, such as fog and mist, summer, snow, blue moon, clouds and Tree Oracles, such as maple, walnut, palm, redwood and rowan.
Some of the titles and subtitles are: Rainbow – Hidden Gift, Rain – Time to replenish, Dandelion- Persist in pursuits, Ferns – New Wonders  The deck has been crated to offer a divination tool to help uncover possibilities, choices and expectations and to help solve problems and accomplish tasks. Information contained in the booklet covers how to use the cards and care for them. The cards are all positive in their meaning, upturned cards do not have the opposite of upright meaning but are a variation of the positive. The back of the cards are a heart shaped leaf symbol with perimeter decoration.   




Cards have 4 suits - ‘Landscape Oracles, such as beach, borderland, desert, forest, garden, hot spring, lake and pond; Flower Oracles, such as iris, gardenia, orchid, tulip; Seasons and Climate Oracles, such as fog and mist, summer, snow, blue moon, clouds and Tree Oracles, such as maple, walnut, palm, redwood and rowan. I wasn't able to find correspondences and think this deck is ideal for beginners. 
A daily card gives guidance for the day, the 3 card Prophecy shows past, present and future, and the Yearly Forecast is a spread of 13 cards.



Example: Ivy 'stretch and explore' for a daily reading: 

Ivy is often a climbing or trailing plant,  and these types of plants are always reminders to stretch ourselves. It is easy to become complacent, but change is a constant in life. ivy reminds us to stretch and explore and if we don;t take it upon ourselves, the universe will help the process along, choosing the changes for us. New opportunities are appearing. Test them out, explore new realms. Use the past as a foundation, but be open to the new as well. In this way, your success will continue to grow.
