I got the Oracle of Seshet by Rev. Normandi Ellis and Amy Auset Rohn a few days ago. Here is a post of my initial impressions.
This deck is gorgeous. Each card has a photo of a hieroglyphic term, name or concept from ancient Egypt with the name of it written in English below the photo. Amy Auset Rohn’s photos are gorgeous, clear and easy to see.
The cards themselves are firm, good quality and easy to shuffle despite the small size. The cards are smaller than I personally would have liked. I prefer larger cards, but that’s just my personal preference. The cards are easy to read, see and use. I did find a possible error though. The card with the cartouche on it did not have a word written on the card (Unless that was done in purpose. I don’t yet have the companion book to tell).
Nine of the cards are also advertisements for both Rev. Normandi Ellis and Amy Auset Rohn’s other work. On the one hand, I understand why they did this (in case you don’t get the companion book, you still get to know about their work) and on the other hand, I wish they had added more cards to the deck instead.
Some deity names included in this deck are Seshet, Set, Wadjet, Djehuty, Amun, Heru, Nut, Ra, Khepera, Ptah, Het-Hor (Hathor), Anpu (Anubis), Asar (Osiris), Ast (Aset) and Nebhet (Nebet Het). (Yes, Nebet Het’s name is spelled Nebhet on the card. I wish it had been spelled Nebthet instead.) I was very happy to see these many deities in the deck. On the other hand, I wish there had been more gods included like Sekhmet or Mut or Bast or Tefnut and Shu.
Much of the deck consists of concepts (some god/concepts too) such as Heka, Sia, Ma’at, Sekhem, Akh, Akhet, Hu, Ka, Ib, Hotep and Sahu.
The deck does come with three keycards with the list of the cardnames and some keywords so you know their basic meaning. I loved that this was included especially if you haven’t yet gotten the companion book (Hieroglyphic Words of Power by Normandi Ellis) yet. I have not gotten the companion book yet so this is just based on the cards.
Overall, I would recommend this deck to those who love ancient Egyptian deities, concepts and oracle decks.

There are many Eyes of Ra celebrated at this time of year: Aset, Nebet Het, Nit, Sekhmet, Mut, Bast, Hethert and Tefnut just to name a few. An Eye of Ra is a title of many ancient Egyptian goddesses who protect the sun god, Ra with magic, weapons and flame. They are the solar goddesses whose journey reflects the shortening and lengthening of days of the seasons of the year. This is the time of Their return.
So light candles and lamps. Offer water, milk, beer or wine. Offer food and drink to the Goddess as She returns to Her father Ra. Her anger is appeased. Her spirits are joyful.
Let there be light, laughter, reverence, love, strength and peace throughout this time of year. To all the F words: Faith, Family, Friendship, Forgiveness and Forever.
Have a blessed holiday. Blessings of the Goddesses to you all!
If you need any gift ideas for yourself or someone else, I have books on many ancient Egyptian goddesses:
For several Goddesses:
For Aset (Isis):
For Nebet Het (Nephthys):

My religion has many creation myths and all of them are true. They tell us about creation. Atum masturbated and Ptah spoke and everything was created. The Celestial Cow as Mut or Hethert or Mehet Weret or Nit gave birth to the sun god Ra and as She spoke everything was created. Aset spoke the Word in the Beginning as did Nit and everything was created.
The other Gods, the air in the form of Shu, moisture in the form of Tefnut; Geb and Nut in the forms of earth and sky. Ma’at and Life in the forms of Ma’at, Tefnut and Shu. Ra, Shu, and the Eye Goddesses gave birth to light. Wesir, Heru Wer, Set, Aset and Nebet Het were born and thus more was created by them.
Do you not see? One became many. Creation cannot exist without differentiation. There are many Netjeru for a reason. For each job to be performed, someone must be equipped to do it. Some of Us have the same job, yet do it differently. To borrow a phrase: Diversity is Our Power; Unity is Our Strength.
All of nature is touched by these Gods and Goddesses. Sunbeams are Ra, Mut, Tefnut, Bast, Sekhmet, Aset and other solar Goddesses. The air you breathe is Shu or Aset. The earth you stand on is Geb.
This is a review of Auset Egyptian Oracle Cards by Elisabeth Jensen and Illustrated by Marie Klement. First off I have to say I love the art. The cards are gorgeous. The gods and goddesses are depicted in very traditional, ancient Egyptian styles and motifs. They are absolutely stunning! (I do prefer this art style, so I am completely biased here). The only card I did not like the image of was the Sirius card.
Here are the updates on my various books.
