Instead of being told what to do, those who use the cards can integrate their energy immediately and personally." Oh boy...

I don't mean to be critical but it's hard to wash the bad taste I get when I see oracle deck creators that focus on love and light move to the world of tarot and try to take their unbalanced philosophies with them. I'm all for love and light, I have plenty of both DV and Colette's decks, but tarot has structure and crucial cards that don't need to be sugar coated with positive affirmations.

I'll wait to see more of the artwork and those affirmations before I decide to purchase
I have her Oracle of the Wisdom in an effort to dabble in the Oracle sphere. It's a different experience and a far less personal one for me with the affirmationy type oracles. I really feel like you need to try out a deck to know if it's a go or a no, but I'm not excited about the idea of turning the tarot into an afformationy type oracle deck.
