Greek gods and goddesses reflect our own human lives and the cards are designed to guide us through life cycles. They reflect the archetypal hero, Odysseus and his epic journey, from departure to initiation and eventual return home. We use this to assist us in our journey through life. We begin with an awakening, experience challenges, overcome difficulties. We must go down into our deepest level to discover new perspectives, our illusions need to be broken, our convictions clarified. We will integrate this new self into the world of the future, mastering both, our inner life and our outer world.
Each card has a title and subtitle and information is provided about the mythology of each card and there is a channelled message from the archetype. There are 5 suits: Protogenoi, Titans, Olympians and Magical Beings. Card spreads suggestions are a daily one card, The Nature Spread (3 cards), The Relationship Spread (5 cards), Archetype Spread (6 cards), Cycle Spread (6 cards), Hero Spread (6 cards). There is a glossary of terms at the back of the booklet.
