We reached our first stretch goal! Help us reach our second one - which will allow us to make planners!
We are doing a giveaway a day for all backers for the remainder of the kickstarter! Every morning we will post what we are giving away, and every night we will film the name drawing. Every day, I will add new backers to the pot. Good luck everyone!
Thank you so so so much for being here and supporting our dream of this deck! It has been a long time in the making and we deeply appreciate each and every one of you who has encouraged us in this journey. Please let us know if you have any questions - you can email us or reach us on instagram.

Our hope for this deck is that it serves as an invitation for you to deepen your relationship with self on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level.
Why is this deck different?
We do not consider this deck as simply an oracle deck. While we trust that you will pull the cards that you need at any given moment, our intention is that after you pull a card, you feel armed to make real changes and integrate the messages from spirit + your own knowing.
We have built this deck so it can be used daily. It's created for you to find detailed messages within both the imagery and content.
We want to challenge the user to visually and conceptually broaden their tools of engagement.
Each card contains thoughtful multi-layered messages that allow you to view many facets of the same concept. Our elemental cards (32 total) will contain an overall message, as well as a message associated with an herb, crystal and animal ally. Our throne cards are larger concepts and archetypes - while these won't have the same structure as the elementals, they will also be dynamic in the content. In addition to that, we include practical advice, exercises and journaling prompts.
Brit intuitively illustrated the art work for the cards and then Blaire turned them into digital artwork by layering it with natural scenes in photoshop.
We have been lucky to find a very reputable printer who is dedicated to the quality of the cards. After receiving our samples, we 100% trust they will knock the printing out of the park! By the time the kickstarter is funded, we will be ready to go into final production for the deck.
We have been best friends since about 2007. While initially we bonded in gossip (as many unconscious college students do) we eventually grew to be devoted to transformational work. For many years we have been dedicated to showing up for ourselves and one another to allow for deep transformation and healing.
While we take our internal work seriously, we spend most of our time laughing and playing around. We both are people who have a lot of compassion + love but will also tell it like it is and not take any shit.
At the core of our beliefs is the idea that we must be able to be transparent and honest about who we are - including our shadow. When we do this work, we talk candidly about ourselves and others because we do not believe there is anything "bad" about our perceived shortcomings! We love naming all the things because that allows for things to shift - which is why this oracle deck has been such a huge passion project - it gives name to things that may be lurking in the undercurrent. If we remain courageous and show up for this, it allows for deep transformation.
The deck itself has a hefty printing cost due to our desire for premium everything. Both sides have gold foil design, which means each card must have it's own hot foil stamp made. This also makes the printing process more intricate - staff has to be on top of everything to ensure that the gold foil is lined up precisely with the rest of the design.
In addition to that - our cards are on the thickest cardstock they offer and they are also finished with matte lamination so they feel velvety. Cuz who doesn't love luxury amirite?
Risks and challenges
The design and content will all be ready for production by the time the kickstarter ends, the only "risk" is the production and shipping time.
Production should take 25 days, and shipping can take a couple of weeks. We have no control over the shipping however, so we can not give a specific date of shipment. We will, of course, keep you updated here.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
