The Hip-Hop Queens Oracle has been such an honor to bond with over the time we have gotten to spend together. This deck floods back all the memories while bringing to the forefront the deep contributions so many women have made to the music scene that should never be overlooked or taken for granted. It is a walk through a diverse group of women who have not only embraced their power, but unleashed it into the world with no apologies, and may we never forget their courage! As I turned the pages of the guidebook and flipped the cards one by one, the memories of the first time I heard each artist's music came flooding back; every time I pull this deck out I learn something more about myself, the women behind the music, and those that chose to take the challenge of putting themselves out there so that we could benefit from their perseverance and ultimately, their story.
Whether a young female or a "woman of a certain age", there is beauty, power and emotion that resonates from this creation. If you want to learn about yourself while absorbing the most amazing energy, this offering is for you. These Queens need no support, yet paired with my own deck and a few others, there is an amazing synchronicity. If you are looking for the "wildflowers in a meadow" vibe, you will not find that here; inside there is truth, love, loss, reinvention, and the success that comes from a never-ending desire to reach one's potential.
The cards are a bigger size with gorgeous artwork, combination of color, style and texture that draws you in, commands your attention, and sits you down for the lesson at hand. They arrive in a hefty storage box with a full color guidebook that gives the intention behind every card, the history of the artist, and spreads/layouts that are unique to anything you've seen yet! I guarantee that inside, you will unlock treasures and find tidbits of information that you might not have known that will absolutely change your perspective of self, and women in general. We are strong and powerful; our voices should be heard through our journeys, our songs, and our creations. No one has to call you to the front for you to SHINE, QUEEN.

The Diaphanous Oracle came to me at a time when I was absolutely looking for Magick. Upon opening the beautiful box, I was mesmerized by the art and how distinctly different every one of the 84 paintings were from each other in medium, style, and most of all resonance. I was able to have a long conversation with Tammy and gained such insight into her body of work. She has a massive portfolio that just left me speechless. This deck is a culmination of 5 years of careful curating and thoughtful consideration, with each card evoking a certain emotional response and intuitive cue. If you want to delve further into your intuition, move into shadow work, journal/write with more feeling, or increase your depth with tarot or any other form of divination system, this deck is for you.
I started out with a card in the morning for insight and one at night for reflection as the artist's notes describe in the enclosure; however, I loved this deck so much that I began experimenting a bit. The Diaphanous Oracle is an instantaneous shortcut to our emotions, and soon I was creating prompt groups/spreads with it, and finding insights that I had been previously overlooking. Not only does this deck stand alone wonderfully, it instantly pairs, supports, and directs without skipping a beat, asking the hard questions that we just might have been avoiding. You can pull randomly and do the same with a card from another oracle/tarot deck, or look through them all and choose what speaks to you to create layouts completely of your own design. Not only does this tweak the intuition with the Diaphanous Oracle itself, but to be able to better understand our process through deeper work with another tool is an added benefit! I also found these mini works of art to be unequaled for meditation and shadow work. This creation bares the very heart and soul of the artist herself, and while you might see the smattering of beautiful colors and think that this oracle is "sweet", you would be entirely incorrect to stop there. There is so much more here to feel, read, divine, and understand than what you see on the delicate surface. This deck invites us to take our intuition to another level entirely, to explore a path less traveled; to find more fulfillment in meditation and divination. Don't sleep on this LIMITED EDITION!
