Review: Queen of the Moon Oracle by Stacey Demarco

Review: Queen of the Moon Oracle by Stacey Demarco December 16, 2018

I am guided by the moon. The shadows, the brightness, the way She is clouded and way She hides. And while I look to the sky for Her wisdom,

So, when I got a chance to review* the Queen of the Moon Oracle by Stacey Demarco, I was more than a little eager.

Moon Wisdom, in All of Her Phases

When you open up the deck and start to flip through it, what strikes you (or at least struck me) most is the complexity of each image.  This 44-card deck includes:

  • Dark Moon
  • New Moon
  • 6 Waxing Crescent
  • First Quarter Moon
  • 6 Waxing Gibbous
  • Full Moon
  • 6 Waning Gibbous
  • Last Quarter Moon
  • 5 Waning Crescent
  • Wolf Moon
  • Snow Moon
  • Worm Moon
  • Egg Moon
  • Flower Moon
  • Hot Moon
  • Thunder Moon
  • Green Corn Moon
  • Harvest Moon
  • Hunter Moon
  • Beaver Moon
  • Long Night Moon
  • Queen of the Moon
  • Lunar God
  • Blue Moon
  • Super Moon

And each of these cards is stunning. The imagery was varied across age, shape, gender, and color. (I would always love to see larger bodies, trans, and nonbinary groups represented….) The moon Herself, present in each card, looking out from behind the landscape of dreams and imagery that reminded me of an up-to-date Alice in Wonderland setting.

Look at this, for example:

The booklet that comes with the deck is detailed, has images in color, and would be very helpful for those looking to do oracular work. Perhaps at the upcoming new calendar new year? Or anytime when you need a bit of the moon.

I also like the way the cards have their meanings laid out, but also the images offer opportunties for deeper reflection. As a writer, I can see using these cards for inspiration when I get stuck — or for altars around certain themes, times of the moon cycle, turns of the wheel of the year, personal work, etc.

 

*Note: I received a deck in exchange for an honest review.
