Mermaid Books 4 - Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards

Okay, this is not strictly a book, but a 44-oracle card set and a guidebook inside a lovely box. The prolific Doreen Virtue is the creator of the set, and I (Julie) have pretty much every card set she has every released. (Others in the series include: Archangel Oracle Cards, Magical Unicorns Oracle Cards, Healing with the Fairies Oracle Cards and many more). The reason I'm connected to this one is pretty obvious ... There are two genuine "Black Mermaids" in the pack (as in African American inspired mermaids –the "Have Faith" and "Dream Big" cards), and there are 25 artists whose art appears on the card set. The guidebook also provides ordering information if you're interested in getting prints of the pieces. I think my favourite two cards are "Self-Forgiveness" which features a mermaid sitting on a rock in a cave (love her sensuousness, long hair and the gleam and colour of her tail), as well as the "Synchronicity" card with features two leaping dolphins above a set of crystals emanating rainbow light. Let us know which ones are your favourites ...
