The Druid Path
There are 3 types
of Druidic mantic work used by the Ovates:
Predictions based on signs and omens. Use of the 4 elements. Tea leaves, watching clouds,
bird flight, animal behavior, gazing into fire or pools of water etc.
Using no outer methods, channeling higher wisdom in relation to
Methods to find hidden things, whether intangible or tangible. More sophisticated form of
Augury. Ogham, Druid sticks, card sets, etc.
Modern Druidic divination sets include:
Druid Animal Oracle by Philip and Stephanie Carr-Gomm
The Druid Animal Oracle is a powerful card system based on the
animal lore of the Celts. The cards are oversized to better exhibit the beautiful and
symbol-laden images by Bill Worthington. An excellent tool for meditation, too.
Celtic Tree Oracle by Liz and Colin Murray
The Celtic Tree Oracle is a great way to learn tree lore and
explore the ancient Ogham, the Druid's form of writing and early divination. The cards are
exquisitely rendered and come in a wooden box.
Celtic Book of the Dead by Caitlin Matthews
Based on the ancient, epic poem, The Voyage of Maelduin,
this card set takes its users on journeys into the Irish Otherworld and back. This set can
be used for divination and also shamanic journeying. Even without the cards, the book is a
fascinating look at ancient views of the Otherworld. Well worth a look.
Arthurian Tarot by Caitlin and John Matthews
The Matthews take the standard Tarot format and change in to fit
the Arthurian legend. Not a set for Tarot beginners, unless they are well versed in the
Grail Tradition. A wonderful tool to help you learn more about the King Arthur legends. A
book entitled Hallowquest is available to teach you best how to use the cards and
the meanings behind each of the characters from the Arthurian stories.
