REVIEW: GODS AND TITANS ORACLE

December 18, 2016

I have been fascinated with mythology ever since I could remember and today I shall be reviewing this breathtaking deck for you. But first! Here's an unboxing video!

Now that you've seen what's in the box and the shuffle test, here are my first impressions.

WHAT I LIKE:

1. THE ARTWORK.

Words fail me as I try to describe Jimmy Manton's illustrations on every card. He was able to capture the ferocity, power and primal strength of the gods. However, I feel that the printer did not bring justice to his works as far as the sharpness is concerned? To me, it seemed like the ink bled? You have to see for yourselves to know what I meant. 

2. CARD STOCK

The cards are rather large for my hands which made it difficult for me to shuffle. It comes with a guidebook also written by Stacey Demarco and a box - although that too was big for the cards causing them to rattle around in it.

3. AVAILABILITY

You may purchase your Goddesses And Sirens Oracle deck here.

4. SHIPPING

Took about 3 working weeks before I was able to received them (bought both the Gods and Titans and the Goddesses and Sirens Oracle Decks) plus a local tax of ₱112.00.

5 THE BONUS!

Apollo - you get this bonus card on your Goddesses and Sirens Oracle Deck. As per Stacey Demarco, Apollo is the god of mystery and prophecy which is why he (the card) does not have an attribute on the bottom.

6. THE INTERVIEW.

INTRODUCE YOURSELF: Dionysus - Ecstacy

The Gods And Titans Oracle Deck appears to aid people especially for those who are in need to let go. While Dionysus is one of the most misunderstood god in Greek mythology due to his non-stop partying and drinking, know that it is Dionysus' reminder to us all to reject the mundane - a complete and utter 'letting go'.

WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS? Nuada - Protection

Nuada calls upon us to love and appreciate imperfections. The Gods And Titans Oracle is best used when one has lost its ability to appreciate life and self.

WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITATIONS? Poseidon - Flow

Poseidon is one of the greatest gods of the Greek pantheon and is supreme ruler of the seas. He is both beloved and feared as he can be as gentle as a lagoon and destructive as a tsunami. Being water, he controls 'flow'. As a deck, this could be a limitation when one seeks to understand what 'go with the flow' is.

WHAT CAN I LEARN FROM YOU? Ra - Power

I've mentioned above that when I received this deck I immediately felt its ferocity, power and primal strength of the Masculine Divine. The Gods And Titans Oracle Deck is most useful when you are in need of a logical, blunt and straightforward solution.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CONNECT WITH YOU? Ganesha - Obstacles

I find the Gods And Titans Oracle Deck easiest to connect when I am encountering roadblocks and obstacles in life. Remember, obstacles are either removed or placed in our lives for good reason.

OUTCOME OF OUR RELATIONSHIP: Jizo - Support

We tend to lose ourselves in the midst of chaos. This deck will help me (his reader) so that I may support and care for others while at the same time, Jizo will protect and support me in my aiding. 

WHAT I HATE:

Hmm... upgrade to a better printer perhaps?

 

SCORE: ★★★

FINAL THOUGHTS:

I love buying partner decks like these. Having both the feminine and masculine divine really brings out balance and harmony. The Gods And Titans Oracle deck indeed have an immense masculine force. Try it out!  

 

That concludes my review. How was your Gods And Titans Oracle deck?
