The Personal Oracle SECOND EDITION

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

OPTIONS:
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.

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

I like a tarot deck with dense imagery & symbolism so I can pick up on different elements of a card in different readings; I mostly read with the Thoth. But the Personal Oracle with its emphatic simplicity paradoxically called out to me with its simplicity, and I am very glad I bought one. The cards remind me of the quality that the meanings of the names of the Hebrew letters have … hand, ox, nail, tooth, fishhook, sword, window … familiar things, with resonant implications. The “lumpy” quality of a not-perfectly-orderly set of relationships between the cards enables dynamic combinations which facilitate reading. Within an hour of first opening the deck I found myself doing a powerful reading for a friend. Magnificent.

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 a fascinating deck. It is my first oracle deck so I'm still discerning the symbols as they pertain to me. It feels very different than tarot, I suspect these cards will eventually be clearer than tarot. Highly recommend!
