Grandmother Cards – Deck and Book Set
|Created by: Mega Garcia
Published by: Beyond Borders, Inc.
I was introduced to this deck over in 1995 by my Compuserve friend Summer. She did many readings with this lovely deck. This is one of my all time favourite divination decks, especially now that I am a grandmother and I think of Summer when ever I use it.
This very unique deck of cards was created by Megan Garcia. The cards themselves are photographs of pieces of multi media sculpture that Megan has created over the years. The materials used are all from nature, anything from gourds, shells, feathers, bark, wood, hide, fur, antlers, wool and other fibers to corn cobs. Each piece is unique and is meant to represent a Grandmother. Some look like people, some like wall decorations and some are quite abstract, all are beautiful in their own way.
Each card is a lovely elder who imparts her wisdom to us through the images and a paragraph or two of text on the back side of the card. Megan has arranged the 52 Grandmothers into Lodges and Clans, each with it’s own guide. The deck has a lovely card, called Freedom Child, the Guide of Possibilities, whom in many respects reminds me of a Tarot decks Fool card. This card seems young, the Grandmother in training, a seeker who will seek the Grandmother’s wisdom.
My favourite way of using this deck comes from my friend and teacher Summer, whom taught me many things about wheels, the moon and the cyclic nature of life. You pick a direction from the medicine wheel and then a card to seek wisdom on that area of your life.
