THE DIVINE ANIMALS ORACLE by Stacey Demarco
The Snow Leopard – the cover animal on this beautiful and magical deck – gives a good sense of the mythic yet contemporary feeling imbued in these cards. The author Stacey Demarco, passionate about animals and their inherent spiritual energies, uses the myths and goddess or god associated with each to show how we can work with that energy in the form of rituals, meditations and divination. The description of each animal card is broken up into separate segments, firstly the name and message of the card, then the myth and inherent magical energies we can work with and, equally important, the scientific (and behavioural) animal information and its United Nations status at the time of writing. Stacey would like us to not only work with their magic but also remember how humanity has made life difficult or impossible for them – that part of our connectedness to them includes our reaching out and doing what we can to protect them.
