Golden Moth Giveaway + Shop Sale Through December 14th!

Finally, finally... After much poking and prodding of digital files and discussions with my printer, James River Press, the second printing of The Golden Moth Illumination Deck has arrived! This time, I had the cards printed digitally on a smooth cardstock and they were corner-rounded by the printer (taking the strain off my shoulders!) For those of you who haven't been following its progress, The Golden Moth Illumination Deck is a set of symbolic cards that I self-published in 2012 with the help of lovely people who backed my Kickstarter campaign. You can read about the whole sage here. They are oracle cards (kind of like tarot cards), meant to be used for divination or any creative purpose you can think of! Take a look:

I just finished listing them in my Etsy shop, Sprout Head, and this time around there are a few different purchasing options. You can now buy the deck separately from the handbook. If you buy just the deck, it comes with a brief fold-out information guide to get you started on using the cards. This guide gives advice on how to give a reading and interpret the cards and shows you one spread layout. It does not include individual symbol interpretations.

If you want that, you'll have to purchase the handbook. It contains all the information from the first handbook that I published, but it is updated with individual card interpretations. It comes as a hard copy and a PDF version. If you purchase the hard copy of the handbook alone or with the deck, you will also receive the PDF version as a FREE bonus! But note that this offer cannot be used retroactively if you purchase the PDF version first and the hard copy later. Sorry, no refunds. 

You can see the listings for all the different Golden Moth products here. I hope you are as excited about it as I am. In celebration, I'm offering two cool things: a giveaway and a shop sale! Read on:

  1. This deck is so, so beautiful. I love the simplicity of the lines and the colours are absolutely perfect. I'd use the cards as prompts for intuitive creative writing exercises. And perhaps listen closely for special messages from them too :)

  2. Since learning about you and this beautiful card deck at the last RBBP webinar with Jen Lee, I've been entranced with this deck of cards!! The art is gorgeous and I just love symbology so this deck could be a wonderful tool to 'play' with for readings, a daily 'meditation/card drawing' each morning or just to look at for artful inspiration before I begin my day! I will try to remember to check back on Monday to see who wins, but in the meantime, this is my email address, if you don't announce the winner in your newsletter: thecreativebeast (@) gmail (dot) com I will also be looking into your facebook pages soon!

  3. I have been reading tarot cards for years, and I love oracle decks as well. I use these cards in many ways-daily inspiration, for a quick answer to a question, or a more in-depth reading. Thanks so much for the chance to win and the giveaway. My e-mail is: Cartermaryd!
