Perhaps you’ve felt the essence
of a great artist while viewing
original art in a museum?

- Let yourself be a stream of stellar infusion.
- The Art Through the Starstream Oracle, the sister deck to the Art Through The Eyes of the Soul Oracle, is a beautiful and lavish card deck that features 52 rich and mellow art cards that have been illustrated with the utmost love and dedication. Every illustration in the cards calls to you with soft and tender melodies, wanting to be heard.
- I love extraterrestrials and a card start stood out and called my attention was card number 11. Scota at Tara. The illustration and character for this card is remarkable. In the image, there sits an African woman who appears to be dressed like a saint/nun. She is very beautiful and the back of her cranium is enlarged like that of extraterrestrial. When she is drawn in a reading, her message is that even if you feel like a stranger in strange lands, accept the reason/purpose as to why you are there.
- Mexican culture is rich and fruitful, and the people in Mexico acknowledge their land and deities who the Native worshiped. This card titled 49. The Corn Goddess has the image of a Mexican Goddess. Here she stands holding a bowl containing four corns. She wears a lovely blue dressed and a necklace and headband made of several feathers. Behind her is a wolf that is her companion and messenger to her people. When she appears in a reading, she is telling you to honor every creation that you or others create. Be grateful for what is given to you.
- The next illustration titled 51. The Goddesses Ma Chandi. This image has to be one of the most beautiful, at least to my opinion. In this card there’s a blue skinned and long laid black haired Hindu Goddesses dressed in a green satin dress that stands in inside a cave. This Goddess has a serene, yet alluring facial expression, calling to whoever is looking and admitting her. When she appears in a reading, she is telling you rise to an occasion. You will have to prepare for things that you’ve been holding off. No matter what, know that you are one step ahead.
- The back of the cards are not reversible and has the illustration from one of the cards titled “The Goddess Avnova”. In the illustration, a light skinned and redheaded Goddesses is seen emerging from the waters under a cave. Two otters are at her left and right side, protecting her.
- The size of the cards are approximately 3.5” x 6”.
- The cards are slim and are beyond sturdy and hold up very well when shuffling. The cards have a matted feel. They are non slippery. The cards have gilded edges around them, which makes it stand out and look exquisite.
- The deck of cards comes in a two-piece box where the cards and booklet are stored.
- The companion booklet has 114 pages that are written by Cherryl Yambrach Rose. The booklet starts with the first page that has a dedication to Sgt. Major Robert Dean, the table of contents, and a foreword by the publisher. Then there’s The Alchemy of the Art, Using the Oracle Cards, 4 Oracle Spreads titled; The Starstream Portal Spread, The Praha Spread, Lemurian Dreaming Pool Spread, Through the Veils of Avalon Spread, Telos Spread, and the meaning of the each card. In the pages that explain the meaning of the cards you will see an image of the card, the title of the portrait, the year it was illustrated, and an Expanded Meaning, and brief background/history of the image.
- Artist Cherryl Yambrach Rose does the artwork and the medium for the art that is painted with color oils on linen.
- This here is a follow up oracle, a sequel if I must say, for her first oracle deck called Art Through The Eyes of the Soul Oracle. The energy that I felt from the Art through The Starstream Oracle is that it is much more soft, light, and tender than it’s counterpart that feels more harsh, shadowy, and rough. The majority of the cards in this oracle deck feature Goddesses, and yes, they even feature male characters (which to me is a BIG plus). The size and border of both oracle decks does not differ from one another and you can even use it as a 104-oracle card deck! How about that!? If you are looking for an oracle that can sooth your self-being and balance your spirit or simply, if you’re a fan of Cheryl Yambrach Rose’s artwork, by all means, acquire this deck by clicking here!
