The creator has three favorite ways to use the cards: a 1-card spread, 3-card spread, and 5-card spread, which you can learn more about here.
Luminous Spirit Tarot Deck
The Luminous Spirit Tarot Deck's radiance speaks for itself. The black and white illustrations are accompanied by vibrant luminescence displayed on the back of the cards, tying into the creator's inspiration for the deck about how we interact with light and the phases of the moon. A sister deck to the Golden Thread Tarot, these cards focus on what you can radiate outwards versus looking within.
This 78-card deck comes with access to the Labyrinthos Tarot app, which is completely free and supported by the purchases of the tarot decks. In this app, you'll be able to find tarot meanings, custom spreads for the phases of the moon, and even guided readings with the deck of your choice.
Astrology Oracle Deck
Combining astrology with card reading, the Astrology Oracle Deck by Labyrinthos can take your pulls to the next level. Formally titled Claves Astrologicae de Iris Sacra (translated from Latin as roughly "Astrological Keys of the Sacred Rainbow), these cards can help you channel the cosmos while bringing inspiration and guidance into your everyday life. With vintage-inspired artwork and packaging, these cards connect the reader to an ancient past with a refreshed interpretation. Created for anyone interested in exploring astrology, learn as you go or refresh your memory as you use this beautiful deck.
This deck contains 45 gold-edged cards that include the 12 astrological signs and houses, 11 planets, 8 moon phases, and 2 eclipses. It also comes with an accompanying app that dives into the card meanings, digital spreads, and can act as a journal for reflection and notes for future readings.
Cosmic Guidance Oracle Deck
This magical celestial deck can offer gentle guidance to help you find the answers you are searching for. The Cosmic Guidance Oracle Deck was created by Annie Tarasova with endless love, to bring a deck to practitioners with the intention to help them connect to their intuition and the universe. The violet color of the cards is meant to represent the crown chakra, while each of the images on the cards was intuitively created with deeper symbolism and meaning. This deck is divided into three suits—Action, Meaning and Message. Action cards advise you on what to do, Meaning cards explain what your situation means, and Message cards tell you what the universe wants you to know.
The 42-card deck features shimmering silver details and silver edges. It also comes with a guidebook to help you explore the messages relayed in the cards.
Practicing with tarot and oracle decks is a great way for you to connect with yourself, your intuition and your guides. There’s no right or wrong way to pull cards, so have fun as you explore and learn more about your deck. We hope that one of these has sparked your interest and you continue to find the spiritual tools that help you in the best way possible!
