The Personal Oracle SECOND EDITION

52 cards (3"x4"), plus title card
matte finish
Mini quick-reference booklet
in two-part rigid box

1. Deck only (w/ mini booklet)
2. Deck and workbook set (Includes a 5"x7" workbook with instructions for use and blank pages for you to explore the card meanings.)

(Replacement/extra books also available if you want to explore meanings again or if you and a friend are sharing the cards. Contact shop for details.)

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 many additional cards. Thanks for being a part of its development!

The SECOND EDITION features 13 additional cards, a larger card size, and matte finish. It comes in a two part rigid box instead of a tin.

Used or imperfect copies are sometimes available. Currently available copies have slightly damaged boxes (scuffed labels or dented edges) but are otherwise new. Cards are unoped. THESE SETS DO NOT COME WITH A JOURNAL. Order the journal separately.

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

I've been sitting on this review for a while and like... for all of the other cards I have first impressions and second impressions and drunk impressions but the hourglass is still the hourglass. This deck is an EXCELLENT tool for both divinition and introspection. It was WAY easier than I expected to assign meaning to the cards (which I was worried about tbh, but the symbols feel very familiar), and I often use the cards in tandem with the Dark Exact's tarot deck for clarification or just for funsies. Highly recommend as a tool for magic or meditation, and also as an interesting means of self-exploration. (Additionally, shipping was quick, the packaging was aesthetically neat and fun to open, and the hand-written note from the shop owner is a sweet little touch! 12/10; will order from the Dark Exact again.)

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.
