Celtic Oracles: A New System for Spiritual Growth and Divination
The Celtic way of life is an indigenous European belief system that honors both female and male images of the divine and holds the Earth to be sacred. This new divination system for personal development and spiritual growth based on Celtic symbols, folk wisdom, and spiritual principles will show you how to incorporate the Celtic way of knowing into your daily life. The 64 oracles are the primal forces identified by the Celts as goddesses, gods, faeries, and animal and tree spirits. Each oracle contains historical background, poetry, or verse from original Celtic sources; an interpretation for the contemporary reader; and beautiful, original black-and-white artwork, created especially for this book.
Celtic Oracles works in a similar way to the I Ching: Just throw two coins three times to discover which of the oracles is influencing your life. The oracles are interrelated, reflecting the Celtic worldview that all aspects of our lives are woven together. Inspiring a deep connection with a powerful, ancient way of knowing and living in the world, this transformative system will help you understand the often hidden forces at work in your life and guide you in making practical decisions.
