As I bring forth a better look at the Sea Melodies Deck, I hope you’ll also join me for a one card community reading. I would love for you to hear a message of comfort, hope, and inspiration that will hopefully resonate deeply with you -- straight from this lovely deck!
Aside from the deck being adorable, it is also very tiny. (It’s smaller than my hand!) The first thought I had when I saw the size of the deck was how the cards would make perfect pretty bookmarks. While I acknowledge that’s just the massive bookwork in me rearing its head, you’d definitely agree once you see how charming the illustration on the cards is. It would be so fab to just be able to whip a card out of the deck and stick it into a book you’re reading. That way, you’d also get a wonderful reminder from the universe every time you’d open that book! Pretty brilliant, right?
The box that the deck comes in is sturdy and stunning. It’s well-made with a magnetic lid that has this inscription:
HOW TO USE THE CARDS
Whenever you need inspiration and guidance, sit in a peaceful spot and draw a card from the deck. Allow the musings and melodies of the mermaids to clear your sights. Take solace in the legends and lore of the deep blue sea.
On the back of the box, there’s also a description that reads:
Be swept away by the endless ocean in a world of mermaid magic. This set of 40 inspiring cards beckons you to treasure the simple things and unravel the mysteries of the sea. When feeling lost in the currents of everyday life, let the enchanting songs of the mermaids guide you toward the right path.
Overall, this deck is beautiful and whimsical. It’s perfect for anyone who feels any kind of connection to mermaids or has interest in them. And just like most other decks created by Rockpool, the quality on this is top notch, with its solid and glossy finish. As for the illustration on the back of the cards... did I mention it’s magically gorgeous?
Without spoiling anything for you, here are just a few of the messages from the mermaids you’ll find inscribed on the cards…
AMBITION: Set your eyes beyond the horizon.
ANCHOR: Keep yourself grounded.
BREATHE: Break from beneath the water surface
and soar up beyond the turquoise sea.
EASE OF USE
Aside from being beautiful, the Sea Melodies deck doesn’t require a lot of interpretation the way most other oracle decks do. That makes it easy to use and understand. The cards are not image-heavy and rely mostly on words, so it’s almost like having the messages directly spoken to you.
How straightforward and easy to use is this deck, exactly? It doesn’t come with any sort of manual or guide. That’s how easy. It’s definitely an ideal deck for quick and light use.
After getting a good look at the Sea Melodies Oracle Deck, I gave it a good and extensive shuffle (which proved to be FUN because the deck is tiny) before I pulled out a card for all of us. Here’s the message from mermaids that we all need to hear…
“Protection: Keep some aquamarine close – mermaid tears
have been known to create these precious gems.”
What a lovely message! It’s perfect if you need spiritual protection or general protection from negative emotions. Maybe you need protection from getting your heart broken, or perhaps you need protection from entering into conflict with others... I feel like there’s so much of that going on in the world right now, and this message is definitely timely.
If you have an aquamarine gem handy, this would be a great time to pull it out and carry it around with you. You can use it to build up the energy shield so many of us need right now. And even if you don’t have aquamarine, you can still build that same level of energy shield bubble to comfort and encase you just by setting an intention to do so. If you’d like to take a minute and close your eyes, simply set the intention to build that protective energy bubble around yourself.
Here’s to hoping that your path in the world today is a little easier and a little bit safer!
