Description

THE GIRLS UNDERGROUND STORY ORACLE

Made possible by funding from a successful Kickstarter campaign, this oracle is a little different than your average Tarot-derived deck. It offers guidance and insight not through visual imagery, but through the power of Story - in particular, a story archetype I call "Girls Underground."

Girls Underground tales most often take the form of novels and films, but the idea is so old it can be found in ancient mythology, and later in popular fairy tales. They involve initiatory journeys - often literally underground - in which a girl or woman explores a perilous Otherworld with several companions, confronts an Adversary, and learns the lessons necessary to reach her goal, ending up transformed.

The original inspiration for the idea was the classic 80's fantasy movie Labyrinth (and to a lesser degree, Alice in Wonderland) and fans will recognize many of the elements of Sarah's journey in these cards.

I have chronicled over 250 Girls Underground examples on my blog over the years. I have explored the archetype deeply and believe that it is much more than a literary trope - it contains spiritual truths, and can function as a map for our lived experiences. With that in mind, and with over two decades of experience as a diviner, I have created this oracle.

Each of the 50 cards in this deck contain either a common plot point or a lesson from Girls Underground stories. When drawn in response to a question, these cards can reveal where you are in your narrative, warn you of pitfalls to avoid, remind you of important messages, and encourage you during challenging times.

***Please note that this oracle deck is for anyone who feels connected to or inspired by the Girls Underground archetype or the many stories and myths in which it manifests. There is no age or gender requirement for using these cards!***

THE CARDS

Fifty 2.5" x 2.5" square cards with rounded edges, printed in black and white on sturdy, high-quality 330gsm black core stock. Deck comes in a shrink-wrapped, printed tuck box.

THE GUIDEBOOK

6" x 6" perfect-bound book, 80 pages with matte black cover. Includes thorough description of the Girls Underground archetype, its origins, and its meaning, instructions on how to use the oracle (with several types of readings suggested, plus other ways to use the cards), and most importantly, interpretations for the cards - exploring how each plot point or lesson appears in the archetypal Story, and what it could mean in the context of a divinatory reading. Lots of quotes from Girls Underground examples to illuminate and inspire!

THE EXTRAS (optional)

You can purchase the basic oracle with deck and guidebook, or make it more special by adding a 3" x 5" double-drawstring printed cotton bag for the cards and single 12mm black die (which is needed for a couple of the suggested methods of using the oracle).

I also have a limited supply of 5" x 8" blank lined notebooks (48 pages) printed with the Girls Underground logo on a brown kraft cover, perfect for keeping records of your divinations, or taking notes from GU books. Just select the option "All the extras" when ordering and you will receive a notebook along with the bag and die.

Both of these extra options will also come with a Girls Underground Story Oracle bookmark!

Wonderful as always. This deck is so relevant to the times, and to the lives of the women I’m honored to know. There was a bit of a delay this time around but I didn’t even notice. I received a message informing me of the delay and offering to cancel the order but, to me, it’s worth the wait. I so appreciate the addition of the notebook this time around. Thank you for drawing attention to the Girl Underground archetype and offering this deck.
