Cygnus Review Autumn 2019, Cygnus Star Titles
by: Cheralyn Darcey
This is a lovely boxed set of 36 cards and a 120 page colour illustrated book. Each card has a quality on it together with a plant or herb that epitomizes that quality. Thus there is Acceptance/Valerian, Attraction/Parsley, Repair/Comfrey and Protection/Echinacea. The deck isn’t British but at least 80% of the plants grow here and practically 100% of them are familiar to us all. I can think of many uses for these cards: divination according to the quality of the plant, putting the card on your altar to bring through its magic and appreciating the beauty of the whole image on the card for energy and inspiration. The book is also a treasure trove of information: every entry has the oracle meaning, botanical description, magickal correspondences and a spell for that herb. This is a wonderful product and I can’t recommend it too highly.
