Joe Desy Astrology Reading Cards are a unique oracle book and card deck set that incorporates the influences of the zodiac signs, the planets, and houses. Knowledge of your birth date or time of birth is not necessary to use these cards, nor do you need to find out what your sun sign or rising sign is to benefit from them. Allison Chester-Lambert, author of The Future in the Stars, created this deck based on astrology archetypes, not on natal chart information. In this pictorial review of the cards I will tell about the three types of cards within the full deck, how to use the cards for personal guidance and answers to your questions, and where to connect with the card creators on Facebook.

Joe Desy To do a reading you will first separate the three smaller decks by color. Shuffle each of the twelve-card decks: The Planet Cards, The Zodiac Sign Cards, and The House Cards. Fan each set of twelve cards face down onto a table or floor to draw from. Mentally focus on a question. Next, draw one card from each of the three fanned decks. Peruse these three cards to decipher an answer to your question. Each card gives you a brief meaning, but for a more in-depth understanding, turn to the book. Each card has a full page dedicated to explaining the card's meaning. Suggested pathways are also given for you to explore. What New Direction Has the Most Potential for my Spiritual Growth? Virgo Zodiac Sign Card (querent's personality trait being explored) indicates responsible and diligent attributes. Neptune Planet Card (energy or influence) indicates a desire for dreams to be unfurled, yet the morning fog has yet to be lifted and currently shadows what awaits off in the distance. It appears the querent needs a reprieve or is not yet prepared for any leap into the next stage. The Ninth House Card (area of life affected) suggests higher learning or a spiritual retreat to satisfy the hunger for purpose or understanding. It also comes with a lesson or reminder about the importance of being authentic and genuine in personal pursuits. Moving forward is encouraged to further enrich one's life. One Card Reading Alternately, you can shuffle all 36 cards together and draw one card for on-the-spot inspiration. 07 of 07 Wrap-Up Comments The Planet Cards | The Zodiac Sign Cards | The House Cards | How to Use the Cards. Joe Desy This completes my tutorial of the Astrology Reading Cards. Using astrology-themed divination cards is unique, but not a completely original idea. I own a set of Linda Goodman's Star Cards that I usually pull out on New Year's Day for a new year forecast reading. The Goodman deck is based on both the zodiac and numerology. What I Especially Love About these Cards Simple 3 Card Layout Rich Violets, Indigos, Blues, Greens Beautiful Artwork Chiron (Healer Planet) Included Among The Planet Cards. Astrology Flash Cards Although Astrology Reading Cards were created with divination in mind, they could easily be used as learning tools or "flash cards" to help familiarize yourself with meanings and influences of the planets, the houses, and zodiac signs. These three are the primary components that professional astrologers use to analyze the stars and forecast future possibilities. Fondling beautiful art cards is my favorite part of reviewing new divination card decks. Not surprising, artwork by Richard Crookes is absolutely beautiful, and I do love these cards. This is the second deck illustrated by this artist I have reviewed. The first was Angels of Atlantis Oracle Cards. Comparing the two decks, you will definitely see similarities. Very lovely.
