Hands of the Ancients’ Medicine Cards

‘Hands of the Ancients’ Medicine Cards

Guidance from the Four Corners

Created by Jan Wright


The Four Corners of the United States ~ Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona ~ contain remains of an ancient civilization that thrived for at least a thousand years on the high, arid Colorado Plateau.

‘Hands of the Ancients’ Medicine Cards ~ Guidance from the Four Corners is a divination deck of 28 watercolors by Jan Wright of rock art, ancient Native symbols, artifacts, and dwellings in the area. Colorful collages represent each of the seven sacred directions, which in many Native traditions consist of the four cardinal directions, Mother Earth, Father Sky, and the Heart.

Then three paintings capture different aspects of each direction’s energy. Because paintings are subjective, closely observing first impressions and what draws attention in each card is important in the divination process.

A booklet is included to provide information, suggested meanings, and symbolism of each painting. A handmade bag painted of desert varnish and four hand prints holds each deck and booklet.

In working with a divination deck, one might ask a question about an issue or relationship to be faced. By shuffling the cards and spreading them face down, one can then select a card, either visually or feeling tingling or hot energy as your hand moves just above them. Often surprise or recognition comes when the selected card is first turned over. Some choose to pick a card each day to focus on their healing aspects. It’s truly magical how people using these cards pick just the right card for them.

May the Ancients of the Four Corners “speak” to you through these cards.
