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 identified over 250 Girls Underground examples 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). This option also comes with a Girls Underground Story Oracle bookmark. [NOTE: The cotton bags I currently have available are a bright white as opposed to the cream color in the photos.]

Wow. Amazing oracle deck! I choose the 'bag and die' option and I'm very happy that I did because the bag is made of a sturdy material so I know it will last a long time. Also, the print, makes me want to have several more of these bags; and the die - a cute little thing! I only received my package an hour ago so I haven't had time to read the book but I took in a few pages and I can tell that it's a great companion to the cards. As for the cards, they're a perfect fit for my hands..not too large or too small, and they feel really nice. As I was looking through them, I knew I had a made a good decision in purchasing this deck - really great stuff!

Unique concept deck and very appealing to my storytelling approach to cartomancy. I've only leafed through the guidebook but landed on a page quoting from one of my favourite storytellers (Seanan McGuire), so obviously I am delighted.

Just an incredible deck. I can’t stop buying it for the women in my life. It’s so relevant and poignant. Beautiful quality and super fast processing/shipping too. We’re all so excited about more deeply connecting to the Girl’s Underground archetype. 🥰
