The Personal Oracle. By The Dark Exact.
Species by the Thousands
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.
