The King Solomon Oracle Cards is an entirely new species of oracle deck. They were created with thought, care and fine artistry, and offer a vastly different and tantalizing trajectory on a number of levels....
Ms. Ben-Shoshan’s art expresses the card’s themes in a highly surrealistic manner.... Gazing at these cards is like getting a revitalizing brain massage – you can sense your synapses making happy “pling!” sounds as new connections and ideas emerge... The King Solomon Oracle Deck is recommended for readers who enjoy working with surreal artwork, who are fascinated by talismanic symbols, and who want to get out of card-reading ruts.

Orna's fantastic artistry never fails to delight and inspire intuition. The imagery she provides is fantastic fodder for intuitive reading. I'm always able to receive clear readings with her decks, as bizarre and fantastical as the scenes are. There's just something magical that happens when reading with one of Orna's decks. You see things in them that make perfect sense, and they have an uncanny ability to mirror what's going on in your life so miraculously. It's really quite something to experience! I definitely recommend this little gem of a deck for anyone interested in an oracle deck that will fuel your intuition and bring a bit of magical synchronicity into your readings.

Although I usually do not play around with Oracle cards, I was pleasantly surprised by the profoundness and beauty of this deck. The artwork is simply gorgeous. Vibrant colors, whimsical yet magickal images and clear images of the Seals make this deck a wonder to behold. Some of the cards have a Goatic symbol while others have the "72 Names of God", the Kabbalistic names. (These are not written in Hebrew letters but in angel writing.) The backs of the cards are a pale greyish blue with a Seal in the middle. The authors state that the King Solomon Oracle Cards "were created as a personal deck for your daily use." While that may be the intention, I find them to be uncanny when I need simple advice. They have been accurate and wise in that use.
I would highly recommend this deck to anyone who is looking for a simple oracle deck or who is drawn to the Seals. This deck is great for beginners and would be a lovely addition to any deck collection.

The “King Solomon Oracle Cards” is a thirty-six card oracle deck, with four extra cards, entitled amulet cards, that are not intended to be used in readings. The four amulet cards are meant to be used as such – as personal, sacred amulets. They may be kept at home, or carried with the Seeker. They are written in Angel’s Writing and ancient Goatic symbols by the author, kabbalist Itzhak Mizrahi. They influence every aspect of the bearers life, as long as they are kept in their possession. According to Mizrahi, their effect will be felt after about 21 days. After 40 days, their sacred power will be quite noticeable. The instructions are to write your name, and your mother’s name, in the white space on the back of the card. The four life areas that the cards cover are Livelihood, Relationships, Health, and Security and Protection.
The cards themselves are meant to help the reader the significant situations and profound questions that life places in our path. They provide powerful insight into current situations and future outlooks. The lens of perception, or the focus of this deck is the wisdom of King Solomon. The magical signet ring that he received from the heavens inspired the seals that have become powerful symbols in Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and are widely used in charms and talismans. The seals carry different frequencies that relate to different life situations and physical characteristics.
The mystical symbols are meant to connect the Seeker spiritually to the essence of their inquiry. In other words – to the spiritual response to their inquiry. The deck was created to be used as a personal deck for daily use. Morning reading help prepare the Seeker for the day ahead. I found the artwork and imagery to be very magickal, drawing the Seeker into the picture. The readings that I have done for myself have been very appropriate and enlightening. The deck works for me in a very deep way. Seekers from all backgrounds would have no problem working with this deck.

How does one describe this totally unique deck of cards? Well let’s start with a few words my students, a group that included people who have never done readings before. I asked the group to each choose a card for their partner and then interpret the card for their partner, based on the pictures and symbols.
Without words on the cards, the students were forced to trust their intuition. They felt the cards were: expressive / open / honest / non-restrictive / inspiring and informative.
I also asked a number of experienced readers to share their thoughts and their words for the most part mirrored the students, although they found themselves looking for more information by connecting with their guides. The lack of words is one of the reasons I like the cards so much. Since I don’t generally use the books that come with cards, the pictures are full of inspiration.
This is a terrific deck for self-reading, pulling one card and asking myself "what insight do I need for myself today?" Many of the people who had the opportunity to look at these cards with me, are already asking where they can buy them. So does this make them a deck everyone should use, I can’t say, I know I am having fun using and learning more about them every day.
