The Personal Oracle

Deck and book set:
39 cards (2.25"x3.5"), plus title card
Guide and workbook (5"x7")
Mini quick-reference booklet
Cards come in metal tin
[Replacement/extra books also available if you want to explore meanings again or if you and a friend are sharing the cards. There is also an option for Cards Only (in metal tin w/ mini booklet) if you prefer to use the cards more intuitively without exploring possible meanings first.]

This miniature oracle has been designed not just as a divination tool but as a way for users to examine the self more deeply through their connections to each of the thirty-nine images on the cards. The imagery in this deck includes symbols common in “fortune telling” decks from the early the 20th Century, as well as new symbols of importance to the artist, Coleman Stevenson, all illustrated in classic oracle style. Instead of the accompanying book providing meanings for the cards, it offers an opportunity for users to explore personal associations and feelings about each symbol before any cards are drawn. The meanings each user assigns to the cards, whether universal, highly personal, or a combination of both, will reveal the inner workings of the mind. Due to this, every copy will be slightly different based on the user's assignment of meanings. This is also a great tool for writers and thinkers, as the cards can be used for narrative prompts or to overcome creative blocks. The Personal Oracle began as part of the artist's lecture on objects and symbolism at the Portland Art Museum in October 2017. Those in attendance received a hand-cut copy of 10 cards and a blank mini-booklet. The deck, still hand-made, was then expanded and made available in limited release. This version of the deck, now professionally printed, contains an additional twenty-nine cards and comes with an expanded perfect-bound workbook and mini-booklet for your notes on the cards.

This is my first time buying these little ritual kits, and oh my, i love them !! they are so cute in size, and also i had a thought for those witches that are in the broom closet as they say, they are easily concealable. And they are such good value for money. I am so happy i brought them :) Beautiful little ritual kits! I brought two this time and i am definitely going to have to buy many more. !!! :D

This deck is fantastic. First, it shipped in record time. The cards are on the smaller side - which I prefer. And have a very nice feel. I like the tin they come in for storage. Mostly, I am in love with the book for me to write my own card meanings in - it’s sensational, and exactly what I was looking for. Also, inside the tin comes a very small “quick reference” guide for you to make small notes about each card. I cannot recommend this deck enough.

I knew I wanted this deck as soon as I saw it on the shop... I love it. The way it looks. The symbolism. It's simplicity yet it's beautiful. I love how you write what you feel the meanings of each card are. It's just like in the name of it. It's your own personal oracle deck. Fantastic idea.

Beautiful! I knew i had to have it, i have never been disappointed with anything from the dark exact shop. And i make it a habit to keep going back and buying things. They are amazing quality and great prices. The personal oracle is such a fantastic idea, i love that as described it gives you a chance to explore how you feel about the cards and what you feel for you is what each card means. The owner of this shop is such a kind human being, answers any questions or queries you have. And creates wonderful items that has so much energy, effort and thought put into them so worth the money!!! I have much love for this shop and the owner. xx
