One of the best sets of oracle cards I have seen and used, Barbara Meiklejohn-Free’s Sacred Sites oracle cards are beautifully presented in an illustrated box with ribbon pull out for easy access. The cards come complete with a very useful, fully illustrated book which contains an introduction to the author’s reason for producing the cards, together with guidance on how to read them and a full guide to the interpretation of individual cards.
Each card is wonderfully illustrated by Yuri Leitch and has 3 aspects: the Lower World at the bottom of the card, representing the past, the Middle World (present) and the Upper World (future) and is also associated with one of the 4 Directions. A wide range of sacred sites throughout the world are explored including Stonehenge in England, Newgrange in Ireland, Big Horn Medicine Wheel and Devils Mountain in the US, Giza in Egypt and Die Externsteine in Germany.
Every card profile also contains an exercise, ceremony or meditation to carry out. The cards themselves are a good size, easy to handle and a wonderful quality – very sturdy.
The card set as a whole is very easy and intuitive to use. The reading the cards gave me was very appropriate and I managed to draw a card then open the book on the exact page I needed!
Highly recommended especially if you like your oracle cards to give a little bit more – I think these cards will appeal to a very wide range of people.
