Bird Signs in the Database

I forgot to do Database Monday yesterday! It felt like Saturday as I wait in the woods between Christmas and New Year.

Here is another good deck: Bird Signs: Guidance & Wisdom from Our Feathered Friends by G.G Carbone; illustrated by Mary Ruzicka. This was published by New World Library and has a lovely slipcase made of heavy illustration board.

More than anything, I like a deck with birds in it.

I like the feathers on the back of the cards, which have flecks in the background from a hand made paper.

They have a sub-category of seven cards (like the Nutrition – Health card on the upper left) that are labelled “Feathered Friends Cards” and are used to represent bird energy, chakras, and chakra colours. These, in addition to the forty-five regular cards make up the deck.

The book mentions that it is “lucky” to get one of the seven Friends cards to add dimension to your reading. I usually do a single card draw so I never really think of them like that. I also don’t use chakras beyond knowing what they are, but it’s interesting to have this added bonus with the deck.

Good Monday on Tuesday to you all.

  1. Dang, you enabling woman! šŸ˜€ That deck is beautiful! I read on one blog that birders who saw the self-published cards sent info about the birds so that when the deck was published by a company, they included a lot of that information on the cards. Now that is my kind of deck.

    • The more information, the better. I would prefer facts and such about birds rather than new-agey sort of writing.

      That is great that the publisher was open to including some good information.

        • I find in the decks using new-age stuff, that it seems that the author isn’t saying anything, just blathering one repetitive thing for every card.

          Whereas, an original interpretation and a tie-in to attributes and habits of the subject can bring a much fuller meaning and depth to the writing, and thus the card.
