Air Cards

There are 11 Air cards in the Transformation Oracle. Air cards are distinguished by the green background (Editions 1-8) or clouds and rainbows (Treasure Box Edition by Red Feather / Schiffer Books).

Air cards relate to mind: thought patterns, ideas, knowledge, and thinking awareness. The metaphysical symbol for Air is an upward triangle stroked through horizontally. The movement of Air is upward.

Ascent card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Ascent

Rise up! Take the higher ground. Let your opponents fall below. This card is medicine if you find your mind replaying negative interactions with others: family members, co-workers, “friends.” Every one of us is capable of bad behavior on occasion. We’ve all been nasty, judgmental, scornful, childish. We want the last word, the snappy retort [...]

Direction card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Direction

Slow down, clarify, and rein in. Then commit to a single path. If you got this card, it is time to get grounded.

Immigration card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Immigration

Walk in the other person’s shoes. This card is all about opening your mind. When we judge others, our mind is closed.

Receptivity card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Receptivity

Listen to the music. The Universe’s rhythms will guide you. This card is about receptivity but also about sensitivity – how to discern what’s worth bothering with.

Reversal card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Reversal

Re-assess what you have lost… and what you still have. This is the last card in the element Air.

All these things are now overturned and you’ll need to reconsider [...]

Strategy card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Strategy

Set your course and go! This card is about buckling down with a pen and napkin and brainstorming.

It’s time to flex your thinking muscles and come up with [...]

Temptation card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Watch out! Investigate before risking your money… or your heart. This card is a warning to slow down and resist the temptation.

Trickster card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Trickster

Laugh at your mistakes! Bring lightness and humor to life’s difficulties. This is the first card in the element Air. If you drew this card, you’ve probably just realized that you have to start again. Not that you were going in the “wrong” direction or that what you did was a “failure.” It’s just that [...]

Wisdom card in Sonya Shannon's Transformation Oracle

Wisdom

Take command of YOU! Give yourself permission to know what you know. If you got this card, you already know that you need to listen to yourself now. Continuing to put other people’s opinions and ideas in front of your own only leads to disappointment, regret, and frustration. You are more wise about your life [...]
