Raven's Prophecy Tarot review by medusawink
In Celtic mythology the raven is often associated with goddesses of war and death – The Morrigan, the Cailleach Bheure, Badb, Nemain, and Macha – all given to prophesying, and predicting the outcome of battles. The raven is also associated with the Dubd Sidhe (Dark Faeries). Additionally it is the symbol of the Welsh God Bran, whose decapitated head became an Oracle. The raven in the Raven’s Prophecy Tarot symbolises the conscious mind – logic and rationality, while the suit of Wands and the element of fire represent creative powers. Fundamentally the deck can best be viewed as a tension between these two – intellect and creativity.
