Inspired by old Nordic myths and folklore, this beautiful deck offers a new and powerful insight into the meanings of each card. Filled with symbolic imagery, it takes the reader on an empowering journey filled with magical possibilities.
From images of symbolic animals (like wolves, bears and serpents), to depictions of the Northern Lights and Nordic Tree of Life, it’s filled with powerful imagery. References to the Nordic Gods and Goddesses, including Odin and Freya, are also included – as are images of key Nordic symbols, such as the Nordic compass and Rune stones. It also includes references to some of the key characters in Nordic myths – including a mischievous squirrel called Ratatoskr, who would run up and down the Tree of Life stirring up trouble between the eagle on top and serpent at the bottom. The deck also includes a book with detailed information about each card – along with key words, an inspirational message and interesting Nordic legends (including old beliefs about the Northern Lights – which many believed were the souls of lost soldiers).
