Spirit Cats Inspirational Cards by artist Nicole Piar

 

 

Just recently, I received promotional copy of “Spirit Cats” – an “Inspirational” 48-Card Oracle deck created, written and illustrated by artist Nicole Piar. These past few weeks, I have been using the cards – looking at the lush artwork on the one side and reading the meditative prose on the other – as well as researching everything I could find on Nicole Piar herself.

(“Flow”)

I also looked up tarot and oracle cards featuring cats. I thought – why cats? Why not dogs? Or horses? Or any other animal?

One of the websites I visit regularly – at least once a week, if not more often – is Aeclectic Tarot, at www.aeclectic.net/. This site has literally information on hundreds of tarot decks, oracle cards and Lenormand decks, as well as reviews and forums for discussion. If you want, you can sign up for their monthly newsletter and receive email notification of the newest tarot and oracle decks to hit the divination market. I look forward to these emails every month!

According to Aeclectic Tarot, there are at least 19 tarot and/or oracle decks featuring cats. There are only 8 decks with dogs. You dog lovers really need to catch up! There were 25 tarot and/or oracle decks with other kinds of animals, usually some kind of “totem” animal or “spirit” animal, although there is a “Happy Squirrel” tarot (I kid you not). There are also plant-based tarot and oracle decks – well, I don’t have to tell you that there are tarot and oracle decks for almost every subject under the sun!

Although not yet featured on Aeclectic Tarot – but very soon, I am sure! Maybe next month! – “Spirit Cats” is the newest cat deck to join this illustrious group of cat-based tarot and oracle decks. Perhaps they are what you are looking for.

Nicole Piar writes on her website, www.nicolepiar.com, that the “Spirit Cats come straight from my heart and imagination.”  The Sprit Cat page includes instructions on how to use the cards and testimonials from happy customers, as well as interviews of Piar and reviews of the deck on various independent blogs. These are all worth reading and very informative. The entire site has lots of information on Piar – her education, her artwork, how to commission her, even essays she has written. Anyone interested in either Spirit Cats or its creator should spend some time there.

I liked how the cards had the picture on one side and the writing on the other side. For a beginner reader, that is really helpful. No book to refer to – no memorization – just meditate on your question or attitude for the day, pull a card and then read what it says. Very simple and easy!

I must admit that these cards really grew on me. I showed the cards to numerous friends and some of my family – cats lovers and card lovers – and it seemed to me that these Spirit Cards really hit it off best with the younger crowd. My ten-year-old friend who lives down the street adores them and wants a poster of “Generosity” for her bedroom wall:

My favorite is “Freedom”:

But “Seeker” is also nice:

I love Piar’s use of color. Nothing I have read on her blog or in any of the interviews or reviews tells me what she used to create these cards, but it looks very much like watercolors – if not watercolors, I love how she created that affect! Very flowing and dreamy. Each cat comes to us as from the dream world – with sparkles and stars – each one with a theme and a name – to tell us what we need to know.

So, seek out these cards. You can buy them off Piar’s website. I am not sure if they are available anywhere else, but they are definitely available there. At the very least, check out her website – there’s a lot to hold your attention. I know I was there for quite a long time.

Next month – an interview with Nicole Piar! Be sure to check back!

Brightest Blessings!
