To begin, simply ask Nyx a question: What should I do in this situation? What is going on with my relationship? What will result from my next action? Then select a card and consult the guidebook to discover the message that Nyx intends for you. Just like Zoey Redbird and the other fledglings of the House of Night, you will be encouraged to trust your intuition and make powerful decisions about your life! The Wisdom of the House of Night Oracle Cards is an original divination system, created by P. C. Cast and oracle expert Colette Baron-Reid. It draws inspiration from the Tarot, Norse runes, and the I Ching, but no special expertise is required to use these cards. The illustrations are by digital artist Jena DellaGrottaglia.
I was asked to review the Wisdom of Night Oracle Cards and did so over the Thanksgiving weekend with my family. Everyone joined in the fun from the youngest to the oldest guest. Once everyone figured out how to ask a question that wasn’t a yes or no answer..the fun began.
The cards are made of heavy duty stock and edged in silver. The illustrations are beautifully done and consists of fifty cards. Fans of the House of Night series are going to love the character illustrations. The guide book is pocket sized and elegantly written. I thought the answers were well done and easily interpreted by the one posing the question. While I played this with family members in the back of my mind, I imagined ladies night and the fun we could have asking questions to Nyx. The set comes in a nicely constructed box and the cover is striking. This would make the perfect stocking-stuffer or gift for a friend…even a non-bookish one who has everything.
One of the cool things about this for you techies..it’s available as an App and you can take this anywhere and get advice on the spot.
I asked Nyx what direction I should focus on in 2013.
I then shuffled the deck and drew one card:
Here is the advice Nyx gave me:
“My lovely child, you have chosen the symbol for Oath. This is the symbol for all promises, and a reminder to keep the ones you have made.
An oath is never made lightly or in jest. Promises are meant to be honored. When you choose this symbol, perhaps it’s time to look at how you have made promises. Have you crossed your fingers behind your back, relinquishing the magick that binds you to your oath. Has anyone broken his or her promise to you? Let that person go; don’t hold on if someone refuses to be honorable. You don’t want this person in your life. For now, the most important promise you can make is to yourself. Promise to be kind, loving and honorable, and good. Do no harm. To belong to me, you must keep that promise.” (Wisdom of Night Guidebook pg 124)
How I interpreted her advice:
From Nyx’s wisdom for 2013 I will focus on surrounding myself with honorable people, keeping my promises and trying to be true to myself. As a blogger I’d interpret this to mean..be honest with yourself and only accept those reviews you can do! LOL
I would definitely recommend these cards, they are easier then tarot cards and would be fun for teens to adults.
Pretty cool huh?
