The Dragon Oracle Card Deck with artwork by Carla Lee Morrow is one of the most fun and carefree decks that has come out in a very long time.
Carla, the artist of this deck and also known as The Dragon lady has partnered with Diana Cooper, who specializes in the spirit realms of other worlds, to create a four-dimensional deck that focuses on raising your ascension from the third dimension all the way up until the ninth dimension.
Before freaking out, the fourth dimension is the dimension of time, and experiencing other dimensions are simply, increases in your ability to become aware of other realities, universes, and quantum time-space possibilities.
After the fourth dimension, the fifth and sixth dimensions focus on expanding your ability to experience alternate realities and love with others, where the seventh dimension goes up to awareness of galaxies and their energy, and the ninth helps you experience source, alpha and omega dimensions. If this is getting confusing and you need more to wrap your head around the dimensions idea, check out this picture guide by Ultra Culture.
Many of experience these alternate realities on a daily basis and have for a long time, however, this deck systematically takes you up through working with them, which is both kind of cool and interesting at the same time.
That said, in this deck, there are 44 cards, with a guidebook and a box.
In other words, it is a complete deck.
There are 10 fourth-dimension cards which all focus on the four elements and their combinations, these are great for reading relationships, especially if you know both elements of each partner you can use these cards to see what the combined relationship energy of a union will create.
The Fire and Water Dragon Card is pictured below:
Then there are 19 fifth-dimension cards which all focus on embodying higher love and helping others.
Here's a photo of the Sunshine Yellow Dragon, which kept popping up as I was writing this post:
After that there are 11 seventh-dimensional cards - these are all galaxy focused so if you are into learning about different galaxies other than the Milky Way or are someone who relates to being a Starseed, you'll find a home here.
Pictured in the next frame is one of my favorite dragons in the deck, a snub nosed pink dragon called the Dusky Pink Dragon from Andromeda -
And finally, there are just 4 ninth-dimensional cards - focused on embodying source energy. Pictured here is Source Dragon:
As you move through this deck, you'll realize this deck isn't about smacking you down, telling you where you messed up, or even dealing with the terror of a reversed card.
It's more about self-compassion - and as some Amazon reviewers mentioned it's more positive than they expected for dragons, which I feel differentiates them from the reptilians and isn't a bad thing for me.
Some people have mentioned this deck talks about Dragons and Christ light and if that bothers you, rest assured there are like two cards that even mention it and I find them to be lovely anyway as Christ light is just a name that embodies an idea not the idea itself.
So if you want to feel better while still getting stuff done, and ascend and feel more playful on an emotional level while you do the hard work of life, this deck will be great for you - and especially the fifth dimension cards - because these cards are not too floaty, while at the same time, giving you guidance that will help you rise above physical circumstances without being mean or condescending or focusing too heavily on the physical.
That said, the deck does give you weird advice - advice you wouldn't expect to get to change your life in certain ways, but if you follow it, it works. It kind of pulls on strings in one area which ultimately affects the area in question. Kind of like changing your diet to affect acne.
In that way, I feel it's the most out-of-the-box and get-out-of-your-own-way deck released within the past year.
And, it's dragons. You can never take yourself too seriously when dealing with Dragons and for this reason, this deck really lifts you up, it also brings back your inner child.
I would get this deck if:
- You are looking for a unique and interesting new release to add to your collection
- You don't have anything on dragons yet
- You find yourself taking life too seriously and want a change
- You are looking for a whimsical deck and already ascending up to other dimensions
- You have found other decks to be too harsh or dull in their advice
If you are looking to this deck to make sense or to tell you what to do in the way you already knew, I wouldn't get it - I would get a Tarot deck instead, in that case.
But if you are looking to change situations in your life by thinking and acting outside of the box, and have fun, and get out of your own way, then this is the deck for you.
Not to mention there is nothing more fun and uplifting when you are dealing with the heavy situations of life than playing with dragons.
You can find the Dragon Oracle Deck for $16.16 (Amazon.com)
