In a world of dominating forces seeking control, it’s a breath of fresh air to discover a power that embraces healing, creativity, and harmony with nature. Enter The Power of the Yin Oracle —a remarkable collection of 58 cards that embodies this unique power. Authored by Daven Lee, this deck takes us on an enlightening journey, exploring the multifaceted realms of Yin and its transformative abilities.

I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to connect with Daven. She graciously provided me with a sneak peek of her new deck by sending me a sample of 17 cards. It’s important to note that my review is based solely on these sample cards, which offer a glimpse into the magic and beauty of the full deck.

The Essence of the Power of the Yin

As someone who is unfamiliar with the concept of Yin, I must say that this oracle deck does a wonderful job of describing what it is. The deck provides a comprehensive understanding of what Yin represents and its significance. The term “Yin” originates from Chinese philosophy and represents the feminine, receptive, and nurturing aspect of life. It is often associated with qualities such as gentleness, intuition, introspection, and interconnectedness with nature. In the context of The Power of the Yin Oracle, “Yin” refers to the exploration and embodiment of these energies. It speaks of the healing, creative, and harmonious qualities in a spiritual and intuitive manner.

Design and Artwork

Each card in the deck displays an original illustration painted by artist D. Yael Bernhard. The cards have a dreamy feel to them, featuring captivating illustrations that evoke a sense of awe and wonder. The dreaminess in The Power of the Yin Oracle reminds me of the enchanting world of Chagall paintings. Each card is a work of art, inviting us to embark on a journey of self-discovery and spiritual exploration. The colours, textures, and patterns used in the artwork creates a tapestry of beauty and meaning. On the back of each card, you’ll find written guidance relating to a certain power of Yin. The messages are written in a way that feels personal and also relatable. Depending on which card you pull, the message may come across as a gentle whisper or it can be an emotional pep talk.

Card Quality and Durability

The cards in The Power of the Yin Oracle have a generous size, measuring 89x127mm. This allows for a comfortable grip and easy handling. The card stock itself feels durable and nice to touch. Additionally, the cards have a matte finish that makes the cards easy to shuffle and is fingerprint resistant. With these thoughtful design elements, the cards offer a visually pleasing and practical experience for users. When I received the sample cards, the outer packaging was not yet available. However, it’s worth noting that the completed deck will be packaged in a sturdy box.


As I explored The Power of the Yin Oracle, I couldn’t help but feel intrigued by the whole experience. It was like entering a world of untapped hidden messages from my higher self. Each card in The Power of the Yin Oracle carries its own unique energy that can be applied to a wide range of situations. It’s truly remarkable how versatile and adaptable these cards are. No matter what challenges or decisions you’re facing, you’ll find a card in this deck that resonates with your current circumstances.

In my personal card pulls, there was one card that kept appearing for me: “The Liminal”. It couldn’t have been more timely, considering the significant life decisions I faced at the beginning of this year. I had begrudgingly found myself standing at crossroads, repeatedly being pushed beyond my comfort zone. I was constantly telling my friends that I felt like I was in limbo. However, six months on, it’s becoming clear that everything is falling into place just as it should.

Whether you’re seeking guidance or simply looking for inspiration, these cards have got you covered. Their wisdom and insight can help you gain a fresh perspective, find clarity, and make choices that align with your true self. Daven offers messages that tap into your intuition and inner wisdom. These messages empower you to trust yourself and make decisions that feel right for you.

The Deck’s Journey

When I first looked through the cards and read them, I noticed that they depicted a journey. I found it clever that the deck uses colour and symbols to depict the different stages. The following is how Daven describes the deck’s journey on Kickstarter:

To begin, you enter through the Portal of The Body and Longing
