Directions: Ask for general insight, guidance to a specific issue or question and take the time to really understand how this message may be perfect for you!
Fan the cards out in front of you on a surface of your choice (a nice Alter, Sacred Space, cloth or scarf ) and pick one card that you are attracted to.
(or you can shuffle the deck, cut the cards in your favorite style and pick the one on top!)
Read the message, interpret how it speaks to you on a personal level, and then turn the card over (to the photo side of the card) and enjoy the ‘Essence’ of the Flower/ plant/ or elemental that would like to share its healing gift with you!
The 'Sanctuary Garden Flower Oracle' by Patti Newton is the first to be published from her original collection of Tarot and Oracle decks and books. Patti lives in Brattleboro, Vermont.
"I wanted the essence of this deck to be 'timeless,' as if it could have been created in any era or any time period; ageless and consistent as the perennial beauty of the flowers themselves! Still mysterious and glorious, they could have grown in a Victorian garden or a garden in the 21st century; Many things change - Flowers remain the same!"
On the back of the cards are my original photographs of these divine beings (note: I was guided to leave them in their natural state and not Photoshop them as it's true - who can truly improve on the energetic beauty of a flower?
"I love the Natural Beauty of Vermont, it has been inspirational for creating my original Tarot and Oracle decks and books!"
I’m very excited to announce the publication of my first original Inspirational Deck
‘The Sanctuary Garden Flower Oracle’!
Elementals bring our awareness to a deeper place of our consciousness. They often address the question our heart was longing to ask but our mind conveyed it otherwise!
It’s 48 beautifully illuminated cards of insight and messages gifted from the Flowers and the elemental energies that co-exist in my garden here on a small hilltop in Southern Vermont.
On the North side my yard borders a deep woodland, and on the East side, a valley that is home to many forest dwelling creatures as well as Birds of all seasons and varieties. Living in Vermont I have developed a close relationship to Nature and as an avid gardener an even closer relationship to the Flowers I have welcomed into our humble yard.
It is thought of as a ‘Sanctuary Garden’ because one of my goals is to continue to plant even more varieties of Flowers that attract Pollinators of all types; Bees, Butterflies, Hummingbirds, Insects and other living beings that contribute to the preservation of our precious tapestry of Life. All are safe here - I use organic natural fertilizer, and leave all my garden waste and leaves over the winter so it provides shelter and protection even for the tiniest creatures that live in the soil and under the surface.
I have been a Flower Essence practitioner for over 30 years and in understanding the powerful healing effect of the vibrational qualities of Flowers in tincture form, I was guided to create this deck so we could work with the flowers on a visual level as well as energetically.
This deck is self-published and assembled in smaller quantities to infuse Love, Light and Blessings!
A special Thank you! to all of you who have already purchased the cards! I hope you’re enjoying them as much as I am on a daily basis!

Open the Gate and step into the Magical World of 'The Gate Keeper Tarot'
what lies beyond the Gate is your imagination and your Destiny! Participate in the shift of Consciousness
that is possible for all of us!
“In times of uncertainty, turmoil and darkness, humanity has always needed metaphysical tools to cast light into the shadows, to be able to see clearly, and to illuminate our path as we journey through the human experience.”
This deck was my esoteric ‘Treasure Hunt’, My intention was to combine found objects of mysticism and beauty with the natural world that surrounded me in Southern Vermont, and to energetically weave the two together; the rich symbolism of a Traditional deck and a more modern ‘Spiritual Tarot’ style.
The images of the 78 cards are my original photographs. They feature sacred objects I discovered in the physical realm: crystals, a wood labyrinth, statuary, dragons, Buddhas, a grandfather clock, a ghost orb, Angels, a crow, Fairies, owls, and of course; ‘The Gate’ itself.
They also feature the natural world: flowers, a waterfall, Rainbows, bee, grasshopper, Butterfly, sky, trees, plants and a strong presence of the five Elements, Water, Wood Fire Earth and Metal.
It symbolizes the journey we all take from childhood to maturity and the development of our personalities and consciousness
along the way.
This was my ‘initiation’ deck’ - the first Tarot deck I ever designed. It took me ten years to complete; A decade in which I watched by daughter Jade, evolve from a seven -year-old girl to a seventeen-year-old young woman – she appears in 6 of the card images.
The cards contain many beautiful artifacts from my shop Silver Moon Adornments (2000 – 2020) in Brattleboro Vermont.
It was a haven for the magical.
‘The Gate Keeper Tarot’ was inspired by the Five of Pentacles. How do we cross over successfully?
Each card represents a profound and deep understanding of our human experience within our greater 'Soul Journey' Each card is a Key to your personal self-development; we ask ourselves profound questions and discover answers from the shadow aspects of our sub-consciousness so that we may benefit from these healing insights.
The Gate Keeper Tarot is a fusion
of Nature's beauty and the
creative human spirit on planet Earth.
We all need to be reminded of the beauty and magic life has to offer. The images in this light infused 78 card deck are original photographs that contain sacred objects created in the physical realm, fused with rich symbolism and interpretations of the traditional roots of Tarot.
It symbolizes the journey we all take from childhood to maturity and the development of our personalities and consciousness along the way.

I came into this world
exploring it as a visual artist.
As early as I have memories, I drew what was around me, as if by doing so I could understand the shapes, color, and patterns that were part of my life a little more deeply, and a little more intimately by knowing their forms. It was what made life magical...
After High School I attended Community College in Huntington Beach California where I earned an Associates Degree in Graphic Design. Back then there were no computers so we learned to do everything by hand. Graphic Design was considered commercial Art although you hand to render and paint everything without the tools of technology that we have available to us today. Cameras we not digital yet. You put film in the back of the Camera and developed it yourself in a darkroom if you had one or sent the roll of film out for development. It was a much slower process without being able to see the results until some time later. I loved photography and at the Museum School in Boston I learned to develop my own photos falling in love with Black and white photography. It had an 'Other Worldly look to it, old fashioned and 'shadowy'.
Photography was always a part of my life and I've realized recently that it has been a part of my ancestry as well. We have family photos that we taken back at the turn of the century of my grandmother and her parents in Sweden and a visual timeline that has continued ever since! I never thought much about it because it was just the way we documented life but I've come to realize that was not very common. Really... who had cameras back then? As a result I have albums and albums full of beautiful old photographs that have been in our family for over 100 years. and I have kept up the tradition, as the 'Keeper of the photographs'.... Yes I actually get hard copies printed from my phone and my digital camera!
Photographs are moments in time that are captured for our continual review, moments of our life preserved - kept still - in the continuous movement of time. Like Tarot cards, we get to pause and contemplate the stories they contain within the images and what we can learn by looking at them!

The Dreamland Circus Tarot deck is a combination of beautiful vintage photographs from the 1800's/ early 1900's, and my own original photographs taken at a contemporary amusement park, 'Six Flags New England' in 2015, originally known as 'Gallup's Cove' 1840.
My intention was to create a deck that would allow one to study and read with the Major Arcana more deeply. Most decks offer only one image to represent each of the 22 cards and we use our imagination or knowledge of 'reverse' cards to understand the opposite or 'shadow' aspect 'Dreamland Circus Tarot' gives equal emphasis to both
'shadow' and 'light'.
Inspired by 'Dreamland'' 1900-1910,
Luna Park' 1903 - 1944
Coney Island (where I went as a child and a teenager),
'The Five People you meet in Heaven' movie and book by Mitch Albom,

and every carousel I've ever ridden...
