Do you put on Prince's Purple Rain album every time you're feeling stressed out, or play David Bowie's "Starman" whenever you need a little pick-me-up? Now, you can get inspiration from more than just the music created by these legendary artists and others like them. With the Music Oracles deck, you might be able to gain a little spiritual guidance, too—or at least have some extra fun the next time you're snowed in for a weekend.
Available on Amazon for $17, this deck includes 50 cards, all colorfully emblazoned with famous singers, songwriters, and musicians, including Prince, David Bowie, Amy Winehouse, John Lennon, Patti Smith, and many others. This set also comes with a booklet, which offers up details about how to use oracle cards and biographies of each of the artists featured.
Whether you find spiritual comfort in the world of tarot and oracle cards or you just think it's only good for entertainment, this deck could be a great way to get the new year off to an enlightening start. Close to 400 shoppers on Amazon have given this 4.6-star-rated card collection a try, with many enjoying the artwork on vivid display. "The art alone is superb, but so is the content on each card—quotes from our favorite musicians that read like philosophy,” one reviewer wrote. Another raved: “I love how they included artists from multiple generations and genres of music, from Beethoven to Elvis, to Madonna, to Kanye West."
If music isn’t the medium you gravitate to, there are other options based on pop culture. The Movie Tarot deck has 78 famous characters perfectly suited for each card, such as Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice as The High Priestess and Wesley from The Princess Bride as The Knight of Cups.
