Hello, soul friends!
Today's review is covering a deck that I thought was interesting, as most people have expressed an interest in Numerology and I figured this would be a good addition to my collection.
I hope you enjoy my review and generous pictures!
Numerology Guidance Cards
I purchased this deck through Hay House's website, during one of their sales and figured it would be a good addition to what I had at the time, as well as a fresh approach to using numerology for guidance.
Amazon's description of the Numerology Guidance Cards:
The Numerology Guidance Cards are the ultimate tools of divination, providing clarity and insight to assist you on your path. When you’re in need of answers, direction, inspiration, and hope, these cards will bridge the gap between your inner wisdom and the “universal wisdom of All That Is” through the ancient energy of numbers. Based on your current thoughts and behaviors, the Numerology Guidance Cards will reveal your future potential and uncover any conscious or subconscious blocks that are impeding the manifestation of your goals. Once these blocks have been identified and removed, you can begin to improve your life and actualize your dreams.
Each of the 44 cards in this deck contains specific numbers, colors, and words that assist in raising your energy vibration - plus the ancient “Merkaba” and “Flower of Life” symbols to facilitate your spiritual growth. The accompanying guidebook offers additional information to aid you in interpreting your readings. Numerologist Michelle Buchanan didn’t design these cards to “predict” your future - but rather to help you create the one you desire!

My Personal Review
This 44-card deck is meant to be used as an Oracle deck, which is just meant to be a little less restrictive than tarot, while allowing you to devise your own meanings of the cards, as well. The dimensions of the deck are 3.8 x 1.5 x 5.5 inches and published by Hay House.
The lift top box is typical of most Hay House products and has become something that I prefer in my decks. I enjoyed the simplicity and color of the cards. The cards consist of a number, the merkaba, and a word or two associated with the number.
I was not disappointed, the author Michelle Buchannan created a beautiful deck and when you draw a card, there is a keyword written on the card to help your intuition, providing you are already familiar with numerology. If you are not too familiar or comfortable with numerology, the included guidebook will give you an interesting and detailed breakdown of what the number means in this deck. The guidebook also includes the influence currently playing out in your life and the lessons you need to incorporate into your life right now, to maximize the energy of the numbers. A keyword is printed on the front of each card which corresponds to the keyword descriptions in the guidebook. There is nothing harsh, garish, or obscene in this deck. It can be used to read for any client, without upsetting them, or having difficult to translate cards. The card backs are a beautiful flower of life. Reversals are up to the reader but are really not needed with this deck. The cards are typical quality of other Hay House products, so I wasn't too impressed or blown away with that. The stock can be sticky and holds any bends too easily for my liking. I find that it also scratches a bit easier, so for those who do use their decks heavily, you may find yourself having to replace your decks faster than some Indie decks.
The size of the cards was an average oracle deck size. Not too large, and not too small. The 136 page guidebook is simple, but gives enough to encourage you to develop your own special meanings of the cards. It really does lead one to using their intuition and also diving into all of the details in the cards. I found it to be a quick to use deck, and easy to not be distracted by too many details, odd wording, or a guidebook that is lacking. It is very user friendly and simple enough that anyone can dive right in.
All in all, I enjoyed it a lot and have found it to be wonderful to use with clients, without hesitation, if the messages will be well-received. It is comforting, supportive, and also allows for clear messages to be delivered to be without distracting details, or over complicated themes involved. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves numerology, simple or minimalistic decks.
