Deck Review- King Solomon Oracle Cards

The creation of the King Solomon Oracle Cards is a collaboration between the knowledge and experience of Itzhak Mizrahi, a renowned Kabalist and metaphysical expert, and the talent of spiritual artist Orna Ben-Shoshan, a universal well known artist, who creates healing art through channeling. Together they have created a marvelous little deck that is a joy to work with and a pretty accurate deck as well.

This 36 card deck is based on the Kabbalistic "72 names of God" which each represent unique strengths and are written in angel writing placed on each card according to the layout of the ethereal and dreamlike artwork. The colors used and the imagery itself are imaginative and quite playful lending a unique quality to the deck as a whole.

Created as a deck for personal use, you don't need to be an expert in order to use these cards. When you first open up the box, there are four amulet cards that are not part of the deck but to be used as sacred amulets written in angel language as well as Goetic symbols whose purpose is to act as a blessing in your everyday life. On the backs of these cards you write your name and that of your mother, for example... John son of Sharon.

Card I – for income and property: The holder of this amulet shall find tremendous financial profit, will increase richness and be blessed witheverything he does.

Card II – Love Relationships: The holder of this amulet shall wind the most competent spouse, and improve existing relationships.

Card III – Health: The holder of this amulet shall improve his health and be protected from any illness or injury.

Card IV – Guarding and Protection: The holder of thisamulet will be protected from any evil eye and negative energies and his path safely guarded in all his deeds.

There are several ways you can use the 36 cards, each card has keywords and meanings for three different areas such as: 1.) The situation 2.) The person you are inquiring about and 3.) Advice on the action to take. Each area has a number of possible interpretations which are contained in the LWB (little white book) that accompanies this deck.

So, say for instance, you were looking for advice concerning how to connect better with your family and drew card number 7  Fertility-Children- Family, the advice would be to "Do good deeds for your family and children, give willingly to a family member." Giving time and being of service to your loved ones not only draws you all closer together but also strengthens that family bond. Sometimes just being there for them is the greatest gift one can give.

In the back of the LWB, there are several layouts for using the cards and biographies of it's creators. The card stock is simply perfect and shuffles very well with a fantastic light lamination. This is such a fun little deck, I love the light and airy artwork and it's busy little characters. This would make a charming deck for any collection.
