My name is Anna and I am passionate about the cards presenting female deities from all over the world.

The images and myths about goddesses have been present in my life since early childhood. A couple of years ago I came across the decks of goddesses oracle cards. The images were beautiful and there was a short guide attached to each deck but I was searching for the texts that would provide more meanings and interpretations. I have not found any so I decided to write them myself.

When I started this blog in July 2011, my main goal was to broaden the meanings of goddess oracle cards and to explore the mythological, archetypical and symbolic layers of these incredibly powerful cards. After studying several decks, I realised I needed to create my own. Since I do not have any artistic skills, I only wrote goddesses’ names and key words on the small pieces of cartons and started to pick one daily to learn their meanings better. Soon it became clear to me that thanks to their complexity I can use my cards not only as an oracle tool but also to answer specific questions just like Tarot or runes do. I began spreading them to my friends and family, their feedback was so positive that at some point it became clear to me I should start spreading cards professionally and publish my deck which I named Land of Goddesses after my blog.

My plan is to publish the goddess deck that I have created and tested in various spreads for 6 years. The work on the graphic versions of my cards will start in March 2017, stay tuned.

While searching for the information and the myths concerning goddesses I clicked many pages and blogs concerning old religions, paganism and Wicca. Even though I agree and support the general message about the lack of spiritual and divine feminine in our culture, I do not always like the details that I find. Let me enumerate what I find discouraging and what you will not find here.

1. Despite being highly spiritual I am also very brain and logics oriented person. I do not buy just any idea that the ‘masters’ and ‘gurus’ want to sell to me. There is a lot of chit chat hidden behind ‘spiritual messages’.

2. I am tired of all that ‘Find Your Inner Goddess’ babble. In antiquity women worshipped goddesses but did not go telling everybody they were divine themselves (and if they did, it did not end up well, have a look at the myth of Niobe in the post about Artemis). Not every woman is a goddess and not each of them has to be, really! It is absolutely enough to be simply a woman, not a shrew.

In fact I observed that most people rather need to work with the opposite energy i.e. women should strengthen their male component while men would gain a lot by befriending their female side. In this way we feel balanced within and do not need to search for confirmation and acceptance in the outside world.

3. I do not always agree with the messages of goddesses presented in the decks because I always rely most on the actual myths and symbols connected with the goddesses, not on what the author of the deck wants the goddess to be like.

4. I shall not tell you to organise the circles of female witches. Feminine energy is not good by default. Feminine energy is what it is, the feminine energy. You should work on yours to make the best of it but it does not guarantee that women around will encourage and support you. Usually they will not.

5. I shall not tell you what to do nor what decision to make, I shall not suggest practising yoga or working with crystals. I shall not give you any recipes nor magical rituals to heal your life. I shall not tell to give all your problems to angels because I strongly believe that regardless of our faith in God/Higher Forces or lack of it, we all have the power to get up after the fall and to lead our lives in the directions we want. Sometimes life is just overwhelming and it would be naive to think that you can solve all your life problems with yoga and crystals only.

6. I do not like the fact that most of modern paganism is based on mercantilism. ‘Buy this lovely statue of Isis’, ‘buy this magical symbol which will bring you love’, ‘this spiritual book will provide you with recipes for success’ etc. I cannot see anything spiritual in that, these are very earthly powers! I promise I will not be trying to sell anything to you. Since November 2016 I offer card readings through Skype but this does not affect the content on the blog, you can still read it for free like before.

7. I shall not tell you to see only light around you. The world is not the place full of light, it is our natural environment therefore you should be prepared for attacks of predators and souleaters feeding on your good intentions&empathy.

8. I am neither Wiccan nor pagan myself. I do not support any religion.

9. My motto is ‘Dig deeper’ (by Horatio Caine). I try not to stay on the surface but to get to the core. Analysing myths and symbols will tell you much more about the meaning of a card that reading just a booklet or a notice on a card.

10. If you like this site and find it helpful, please leave me a comment, click ‘ Like’ under the post or share it on your social media. I write this blog because of my own inner need but any support is highly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

If this does not discourage you😉 then welcome to the Land of Goddesses.

And this is what I write in Introduction.







  1. Love this page Anna.

  2. So much of what you wrote is on the money!

  3. wow, i guess i thought i was alone with this idea that ” it is all about the money one will make” instead of just making a difference to someones journey in this life. i stumbled across your site while looking for answers myself,, thats how it works for me. i found the card Ixchel whom i have overlook so many times before.. i guess i was not ready for her message until now. , yet it seems i have spent many years going over the same outcome of abuse, and not moving past this stage of learning, i would like if you would to asist me in understanding more about this goddess, the dragonfly has been a strong message for me long before it became popular with many, and morningstar,web and the snake is very real also. Earth and wood i connect too, i seek truth and wisdom, i believe in uncondional love. Louise

    • Louise thank you very much for your kind words. I must say that at the beginning the card of Ixchel had for me only the most known meaning i.e. healing and medicine because that was how the card was entitled. But when I started analysing myths I started to see her message in a different way. Now it’s more like ‘Whether you are in a relationship or not, always find yourself occupation that will bring you joy’. According to the myth after escape Ixchel started to help women in childbirth and this eagerness to take care of the weaker remains timeless. Volounteering or supporting people in other ways is what brings joy and fulfillment to many people no matter if it’s ancient or modern era. Because Ixchel was portrayed with an inverted jug and connected with floods I would add, ‘Let your emotions flow’ because water is the element closely associated with feelings. Tears have the power of clearing and we simply have to cry as much as we need without shame. I hope this broadens the meaning of this card to you and I’m sending you my best wishes&lots of positive energy, remember that whatever happened is now over and you are wiser and stronger. Love. Anna

  7. And thank you very much for your comment, I’m happy you find the info useful 🙂

  8. I Love your Bio, so real and I AM wondering where can I receive a Sophia?? THANX ❤

    • Thank you very for visiting and commenting 🙂 Sophia said herself that she is glad to teach anyone who comes to Her, ‘Wisdom has built her house; she has set up its seven pillars.
      She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine;
      she has also set her table.
      She has sent out her servants, and she calls
      from the highest point of the city,
      “Let all who are simple come to my house!”
      To those who have no sense she says,
      “Come, eat my food
      and drink the wine I have mixed.
      Leave your simple ways and you will live;
      walk in the way of insight.’ (Proverbs 9:1-6)

  9. Eye opening intruction.

  10. Interesting point of view…

  12. Kеep thiѕ going plеase, great job!

  13. jennifer jacobsen

    i am told by my patner that i have negative energy, all other people that i spend time with see it differently.

    • I don’t know you so I cannot judge but if I were you, I’d listen to what other things he says. If they are also negative, then it makes no sense to be with him, I guess. And I also wonder how can he be with you if you indeed have negative energy…it’s illogical, right?

  14. Thank you so much for this page! I absolutely love it! I am an actress and booked the part of Ishtar in an amazing Fantasy Thriller. This has helped me so much.

  15. The ten points outlined above are so refreshing – thank you. I look forward to exploring your site. As a male reader of many goddess themed websites and even more books, I am occasionally alienated by some gender-biased sentiments (not that that is necessaily a bad thing). But i sense with your pages, I may find the resources I need in my own journey towards the feminine Divine. Thank you. Best wishes and many blessings for your work.

    • Thank you for your comment! Indeed, I do pay attention to the actual equality between male and female thanks to the works of Carl Justav Jung and his theories concerning anima, animus, the unconscious and the shadow. I perceive the topic of goddesses from the point of view of archetype rather than worship and I think it really broadens the perspective so hopefully you won’t come across any gender – biased sentiments on this blog. Please feel comfortably here and thank you again for your response, comments like yours make me feel motivated 🙂

  16. Greetings!

    My daughter and I just stumbled upon your blog whilst searching for images of Goddesses. What a gem! Fabulous pictures and great information. However we were a little puzzled as to why the African goddesses and the Egyptian Goddesses are in seperate categories when they are one in the same. Last time I checked Egypt was still in Africa! Aside from this well done for a great site


    • Thank you for your comment 🙂 I divided Egypt from the rest of Africa because I refer to different cultures.

      • Yes, Africa is a continent with lots of different cultures, just like Europe,America etc. It is still in Africa though. 🙂

      • There is a difference between the cultures of ancient Egyptians and of animist African tribes though. I don’t want to look at culture from the geographical perspective only.

  17. Thank you for your insight. A good friend gave me Doreen’s cards a few years back. I found them helpful, but some of the messages seemed unclear. Isolt for example. I did my own digging to explore the meaning further.
    I look forward to seeing more Goddesses on your site! Thank you :o)

    • Thank you very much for the comment and I’m glad I’m not the only one who makes an effort of digging to find out more about the goddesses 🙂

  18. I feel that so often, some folk just give so much of themselves for whatever reason, to a person or cause, that they don’t value their energy as being more in worth than money. Those who take probably don’t value energy as more valuable than hard currency. i don’t think there’s any shame in accepting a gift in energy form or pure hard currency. We all have to pay our bills at the end of the day!

    • I agree but there’s a difference in accepting a gift for a particular activity and selling spirituality. I think we all instinctively feel that. Thank you for your comment 🙂

  19. I am very glad to find your blog. All your ideas resonate with mine. You are not alone.

  20. Dear Anna,
    How to know which card do I belong to..?

    • First I would ask what deck do you use. Do you like it? Why? Do the images speak to your intuition? What do you know about the cultures presented in the cards? And then when you analyse, at some point you simply feel that you can identify yourself with this or that card. However, I also noticed that we do need the opposite energies as well so if you see yourself in the card of nurturing goddess mother, it doesn’t mean you can totally ignore the warrior goddess (and vice versa). I hope I was able to clarify it to you a bit and thank you for your comment 🙂

  21. where can I purchase the land of Goddesses deck?

    • Hello! My deck is not ready yet, in fact it is in the initial stage of creating. I use pieces of carton with names of the goddesses written on them for the card readings that I make but of course I need images to publish the deck. I am not an artist myself but luckily my sister Magdalena will prepare the graphic part of the deck, I will concentrate on the cultural and divination layers. This will certainly take some time and so far I had a lot of other things to do so I could not focus properly on the deck but I can promise that next year the work will accelerate and I will be posting updates on this blog. Thank you very much for your interest and comment, I really appreciate it 🙂

    I have recently purchased tarot cards. I have felt led that maybe it’s something I need to learn and use in my life for me and to help those around me. Is there advice you can give to a beginner Tarot card reader. I understand I have much to learn. Thank you!

  23. Hi Anna,
    Absolutely love your site! I’m doing a blog post on Ostara and saw the treasure trove of information on your post about it. Would love to include some of it with your permission and of course giving you credit for whatever you let me source. I won’t use any of your work without permission so if I don’t hear back, no worries 😉
    Happy Ostara!
    All My Best,

    • Hello Jill! Yes, you can use all the information you need, I am happy to share it with others. It’s wonderful to see the respect you have for somebody else’s work. Thumbs up 🙂 When your post is ready, let me know and I will gladly link it here. Thank you for your comment!

      • Thank You so much, Anna! I ended up putting up a poem by Marcus Katz earlier about Ostara. I think I might do another with some of your information on this wonderful holiday! I’ll definitely let you know when it’s up and send you the link! Love your site, it has just about everything! Happy Ostara!
        All My Best,

  24. Chief Ademola A. Gbajumo
