It celebrates the global female lineage in 78 powerful images. Flash Silvermoons scintillating text and densely symbolic card designs are rooted in the body of ancient esoteric knowledge. Together they make r/evolutionary inroads into the very structure of the Tarot itself. In short, Flashs work forges a sacred marriage between ancient wisdom and progressive thinking.An accessible tool for divination, The Wise Womans Tarot will deepen your understanding of the Ancient Mothers wisdom. Speaking clearly to beginners, long-time Tarot enthusiasts and adepts alike, The Wise Womans Tarot strives to raise the evolutionary bar for all!The Wise Womans Tarot has been developed independently over some 25 years, during which time we have seen the births of the Witches Tarot, Motherpeace, Daughters of the Moon, and even the Goddess Tarot. So while The Wise Womans Tarot may appear to be a newer sibling born to the family of woman-identified Tarot deck & books, it is actually an old soul, recently incarnated. (Although it is not necessarily a purely feminist tarot or womyns tarot, it can be easily embraced by such groups.)As a Dianic (Wiccan) Priestess, Flash is motivated by Dianic values to demystify and share knowledge. Her work is set forth in a flowing, readable style in this comprehensive 200 page volume. She keeps the reading light while she draws heavily from her accumulated wisdom and personal experiences as a professional reader.The text of The Wise Womans Tarot achieves academic quality, widely researched, packed with well organized information available through essays, card descriptions, annecdotal stories, example readings all supported by a comprehensive index, footnotes, bibliography, charts and appendices. The book itself is also beautiful with all the cards in full color and dozens of related photos.The writing is deep and evocative, going into the akashic records and ancestral lineage of the Divine feminine as represented through cultures the world over. Flash offers an engagingly-readable blend of arcane knowledge and matriarchal heritage, the details of which are thoroughly captured in her card designs, illustrated by Barbra Vogel following Flashs guidelines.
