An excellent introduction to flower reading and connecting with nature, as well as an entry level botanical referenceIf you have ever wondered what a flower means or why anyone has ever attributed symbolic meaning to a plant, then this card set will answer those questions. Floramancy is a way of connecting with the Language of Nature, and is the foundation of this deck of cards and guidebook. The ancient art of reading flowers and plants for divination and for healing insight is gained through understanding these meanings, so that you may wish them on others or bring that energy into your own world. The box set consists of 36 cards and a 96 page full-color booklet of the world's favorite flowers. It features unique flower spreads for readings, and a special card of the day instruction that will delight those that love beautiful oracle tools and traditional artwork. The artwork is uniquely created by Australian artist Cheralyn Darcey on linocut with gouache paints. The guidebook contains expanded meanings, in short sentences that express the messages of each flower according to the Language of Nature, as well as botanical profiles. The meanings correspond with Flower Essence, Herbal Medicine, and Aromatherapy attributes, and this deck can be used as a supporting tool in these fields. Keywords on the face of each card indicate the overall energy of the flower. The cards are very useful for meditation to craft a beautiful and meaningful nature-connected meditation session through imagery work. The cards are also wonderful tools in holistic counseling, as they offer a gentle approach to opening discussions.
