Many people struggle to save money because their other lifetimes involved communal wealth - where the convent, tribe or village provided for everyone's needs.
In those lifetimes, there was no such thing as individual savings accounts or separate possessions. As a result you may find that your finances are a perplexing and upsetting mystery. Your income may roller-coaster up and down until you come to terms with the fact that you're currently incarnated in a Western capitalistic society that operates on individualism.
To heal this situation, understand that money is merely energy and can be used for good purposes or negative ones. Know that money is neutral; it is what you do with it that matters. Act with the intention to help the world through charity and generosity. That is a noble virtue."

As you mentioned the money (Finances) card l thought the above extract may give you a flavour of how this Oracle works.

l bought this Oracle because of Brian Weiss's involvement, have read his books which are very informative. As to D.Virtue l have two of her other Oracles which help a lot in readings, but would not touch her Tarot cards! Anyhow hope this helps a bit.
Thank you for your reply, Thoughtful... As much as you were using that extract to demonstrate how useful this new deck is, for me, it kind of illustrates my main issues with the Virtue decks being so general. By way of example, the statement that:

"For instance, you may have had a lifetime of extreme poverty or even wealth", doesn't really offer anything illuminating at all, does it? No offence intended, that's just my personal take on it, and, to be honest, it echoes the other Virtue decks in its vague and non-specific wording, except that in this latest issue it makes reference to previous lives rather than the present one. :-)

Opting to work with any particular deck is entirely personal. The Virtue decks just haven't, historically, offered me a great deal of insight, and I was hoping that the subject matter, and Dr Weiss's involvement with this one, would add an extra layer, but I remain unconvinced.
