The Starchild Tarot AKASHIC and Wild Kuan Yin Oracle are a great team together – who knew?
As I have been working with my Starchild Tarot AKASHIC deck (artist and creator, Danielle Noel), I recently discovered that it works quite well with the Wild Kwan Yin Oracle (author Alana Fairchild). I really enjoy working with the Wild Kuan Yin Oracle. Its artwork is happy, charming and compelling. Sometimes the answers it provides are so right on it just makes me smile. I would never have thought its warmth would pair well with the seemingly austere artwork of The Starchild Tarot AKASHIC, but this unlikely duo has proved to be a productive combination. Perhaps it is the blending of opposites – how very Tarot-like.
I became aware of this deck pairing when I was recently asked to do a reading about dreams. Because I was thinking that dreams would be more in the cosmic realm, I decided to use The Starchild Tarot AKASHIC, the most “cosmic” of my decks. I will often use a Tarot and Oracle deck together for the depth of insights I get when combining them. That day, though, the oracle deck I normally use and love, Wisdom of the Oracle (author Colette Baron-Reid), did not seem right. For some reason I cannot explain, I thought pairing it with the Wild Kuan Yin Oracle might be interesting – and how glad I am that I listened to that nudge!
To look at both these decks together, you (or at least I) would never suspect they might talk to each other so well. But I was in for a pleasant surprise when I found they did – and remarkably well. They not only addressed the same ideas, they also reinforced each other. It was pretty amazing, I must say. When I later used the same deck combination for another reading on a different topic, I got the same deep results.
If you have both these decks and have never thought of using them together, give them a try as a duet and see how they work for you. You might be as surprised as I was to learn yet another lesson in the do-not-judge-a-Tarot-card-by-its-image department.
