Clock and Compass

Daily Draw: Shaman's Oracle ~ Shaman of Song

One thing we have in common with the civilizations that have gone before us is the song of nature. Ocean waves and creek riffles, wind across the grasses, rain on the tree canopy.

I'm reminded by this card how very little has changed across the eons. Take away electricity and we'd still be the proverbial grasshoppers and ants and daily priorities become simple once again. We'd be guided by our internal clock and compass...think of the peace of it.

"We do not have a money problem, we have a values and priorities problem." ~ Marian Wright Edleman 1939-

From the mind and pen of John Matthews and paint brush of Wil Kinghan my deck this week is the Shaman's Oracle, Watkins Publishing, London England 2010. Beautifully slip cased with hardcover 88 page book and 52 cards based on ancient cave art. Five suits of ten cards each: Spirits, Ancestors, Dancers, Hunters, Shamans; plus the two Journeyer and Companion cards.
John and Wil have a new deck/book set coming out shortly, The Lost Tarot of Nostradamus.


  1. Some of the most beautiful music to me can be found in nature - the trickle of a stream, the swish of the wind blowing in the pines, or the coos of the mourning doves.

  2. I shall be watching your posts with this deck closely. It keeps beckoning to me. Love the theme and the artwork...

  3. I remember your thoughts on the deck at AT. I used it here in 2010 also, there is a link under the Oracle tab. I look at these ancient images and time seems to fall away and what comes forward is what is clearly of import.

    Thank you both for stopping by, Sharyn


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
