Pixie Card Review: Flower Magic Oracle Cards by Rachel Patterson

Review of the Flower Magic Oracle Cards deck by Rachel Patterson

Pixie Card Review: Flower Magic Oracle Cards by Rachel Patterson 

Llewellyn Worldwide November 8, 2019 | $23.99 USD | ISBN 978-0-7387-6355-2

Welcome to my second product review!! I’m pretty stoked about this whole review thing. I’m not sure why I never did it when this pixilated place was in its old home, but I guess that’s neither here nor there.

There’s likely to be quite a few in the coming years; Books, and Cards both new and old, so get used to it! LOL

OK, so let’s get down to business.

Flower Magic Oracle Cards is a 48 card deck by Rachel Patterson and designed by Kate Osborne. The deck was created in conjunction with Solarus Publishing, and distributed by Llewellyn Worldwide, LTD.

What made me want this deck? 

Well, I’m ALWAYS on the lookout for a new Oracle Deck (it’s kind of a problem, lol), and a couple months ago I saw a YouTube video in which Rachel was using these cards. I thought they were pretty cool, and I didn’t realize that she was the author of the deck until I looked it up. (I am ashamed to have been out of the Witch Loop by my own accord, but I digress)

Anyway, I love flowers (who doesn’t?) and have also been drawn to use them in magic, so I thought a Flower Oracle would fit nicely into my practice, and it does.
One of the cool things about it is that all of the flower pictures were taken by Rachel herself of plants in her very own garden. So, even if you can’t have a spectacular garden of your own, you can share in the beauty of Rachel’s.

The beautiful oracle cards of the Flower Magic Oracle by Rachel Patterson

What You Get:

Boxed kit (4 x 6) includes a 48-card gilded deck and 112-page guidebook.
The box is super sturdy and will keep your cards safe. The cards themselves are not only gorgeous, they’re of magnificent quality, and are a good size (easy to manage, even with my teensy hands).

Each of the 48 cards is adorned with a photo of a flower, along with its name, a key word, and an image of a woman that helps to express the mood of the card (at least that’s how I see it). The card back is a lush green, and features a pentacle that looks as if it has been fashioned out of vines and twigs.

Within the guidebook you will find a brief introduction, a short and sweet ‘How to Use’ page (that guides, but encourages the user to use them however they feel they should) and a few suggested spreads.

Card Messages:

The guidebook provides several pieces of information for each flower depicted in the deck. These include:
  • Name of Flower
  • Key Focus Word
  • Incantation (I call these “Words of Wisdom” for my readings)
  • Divinatory Message
  • Magical Properties & Uses
  • Misc. Flower Facts

 Flower Magic Oracle Card Other Uses:

This oracle deck is not only great for readings, but it is also a great resource for learning Flower Magic correspondences, as well as simply learning to identify each flower by sight.
Cards & Guidebook from Flower Magic Oracle Cards by Rachel PattersonEach card can also be used as a focal point, or an ingredient stand-in, for spell-work. Meaning, you would like to use Cyclamen in a spell to boost your self-esteem, but it is either out of season or unavailable in your area. Incorporate the card into your spell to call upon the flower’s magickal essence.

Final Thoughts:

Flower Magic is a highly versatile oracle card deck. I’ve gotten great results using it in my readings, and I have a feeling it will become one of my “go-to” decks. If you’re looking for a new deck that taps into the magic of nature, this one might be for you.

Pixie Book Review: Pagan Portals - Sun Magic by Rachel Patterson

Review of the book: Pagan Portals - Sun Magic by Rachel Patterson

Pixie Book Review: Pagan Portals - Sun Magic by Rachel Paterson
Moon Books June 28, 2019 | $10.95 Paperback | ISBN 978-1-78904-101-9

Full disclosure, before I get started: I've known the author of this book, Rachel Patterson, for roughly 15 years (this is a VERY approximate number - my brain isn't what it used to be), as we used to be a part of the same online community. I have never met her in person, as we reside on different continents, but maybe one day (fingers crossed). 

Anyway, I know her to be a lovely, thoughtful, and caring human who loves her family, knows her craft, and really enjoys cake. Up until the time I set out to review this book, I had yet to read any of her work outside of Facebook posts. 

With all that said, on to my review!

Anywhooo, I’m using a new deck this week! Today is the inaugural appearance of Rachel Patterson’s Flower Magic Oracle Cards. You’ll be hearing her name from me a lot in the next couple weeks, as next week I’ll be reviewing her book “Sun Magic”. The following week I’ll give you my full assessment of her oracle deck, as well, so stay tuned. Alrighty, onto today’s reading…

5 Simple Ideas for Celebrating the May Full Moon

5 Simple Ideas for Celebrating the May Full Moon

5 Simple ideas for Celebrating the May Full Moon:

Charge Your Crystals During the Full Moon

1. Charge your moon related crystals! 

I mean, you can charge all of your crystals if you choose, but some are more naturally attuned to Moon Energy. A few prime examples are Moonstone, Selenite, Opal, Labradorite, Quartz, and Calcite. It's YOUR celebration, don't let me sway what your gut is telling you to do! 

2. Make some Moon Water 

Harness the power of this full moon by placing a jar of water outside in the moonlight. Be sure to label the jar for future use in spell-work that could use a little oomph from this moon's energies.
