Wisdom of the Golden Path Oracle

Circle Network Card Deck Review: Wisdom of the Golden Path Oracle by Toni Carmine Salerno, artwork by Yuehui Tang, 45 cards and information booklet in pack published by Blue Angel Publishing. You are invited to 'see things from a higher perspective' and receive personal guidance and also use the cards to read for others. There are positive messages and affirmations. Toni Carmine Salerno has produced a large number of card decks through the Blue Angel publishing house of Australia. He is an author and has also produced mind body spirit CDs and is an artist in his own right. Yuehui Tang is an award winning major in oil paints and is a freelance illustrator. It's a nicely produced deck, typical of the excellent quality expected from Blue Angel Publishing with high quality card stock and packaging. Suitable for a young market I would say!

Jung and Tarot

MBS Circle Network Book review: Jung and Tarot - An Archetypal Journey by Sallie Nichols, published by Samuel Weiser with an introduction by Laurens van de Post.


"Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside wakes" Carl Jung

The book contains black and white images to illustrate ideas within the text. There is a full colour pul out at the back of the book with each of the card images. The Marseilles Tarot, one of the earliest surviving decks, is used throughout as the most suitable deck for the purposes of understanding the nature of projection and of making the process of the unconscious mind, conscious.

Angels in my Hair - Lorna Byrne

Circle Network Book Review: Angels in my Hair - The True Story of a Modern-day Irish Mystic by Lorna Byrne  Published by Arrow Books  352 pages Paperback: £7.99  Kindle: £5.22 Author's website:  www.lornabyrne.com 

Lorna Byrne was able to see and hear angels as a child but was slow to learn at school and her parents considered her backward. She was brought up in very deprived financial circumstances and was a lonely child but angels surrounded her with messages of love, comfort and good fortune. Helpful spirits, such as Michael, Elijah, Arabia, Kaphas and Bird Angel guided her, advised her of the future, and granted her healing abilities in later life. As a child, Lorna needed to keep her psychic ability secret as even her parents (and later her husband) did not fully understand her, though they grew in understanding as Lorna developed her gifts.
