“Your body trusts you to listen”
The voice of your womb is the nickname I have lovingly anointed my very feminine vintage wisdom oracle deck. I know. It’s a curious nickname. But one that is oh, so perfect for these delicate, fragile oracle cards. I shall explain.
For the past month I’ve been getting to know my Vintage Wisdom oracle. Her essence. Her mood. Her unique way of communicating to me. She is so refreshingly different from all other oracle decks. And I love her for it.
On first touch she seemed hesitant. Shy. Coy. I get a sense of slow patience. This deck does not roar – a masculine roar.
She begs you to breathe a feminine breath. Move away from the external world and bring your energies in and down – deep down into your pelvic bowl. For this is the place from which she speaks. Your womb chakra. The voice of your feminine self. The home of your shakti prana.
For me the cards reflect back my deepest most personal needs and passions. The authentic (sometimes hidden) divine feminine within.
What is it I’m needing most today, to stay close to myself – is a common conversation we have.
Soften your belly, be still and listen could easily be her mantra. An ancient Priestess of medicine, calling you to hear, feel or sense the voice of your womb.
As a side note before I draw an card I imagine the most delicate vintage veil being place over my head. Some days its adorned with a chain of flowers other days a crystal crown. I so love this beginning ritual which the deck revealed to me early on.
For those of you curious here’s a little of the written insights for the oracle card Protection as shown above. There are always flowers and an animal in the exquisite imagery which add to their depth of wisdom.
This statuesque warrior goddess stands on the threshold between two worlds. Above her head, a halo shows divine consciousness. As she guards the mysterious kingdom behind the portal, a golden sword implies readiness for action. The regal swans, symbolozing the element of light, stand proudly at Protections feet. The light of the sun and moon reflects the qualities of yin and yang transcends the alchemy of opposites. By drawing this card you can feel blessed in the knowledge that protection is at hand.
Oh, and its worth noting there are some gorgeous oracle spreads suggested in the booklet that accompanies the vintage wisdom oracle
– the penning farthing spread – the walled garden spread and the spy glass spread.
