Imagine a tarot deck where you didn’t have to learn the meanings of each card because you already knew them.
Imagine a divination tool that produced powerful accurate readings that anyone could get involved with.
Imagine a multi-purpose tool that helped with writers block, offered games and insight into life.
Imagine a professional international performer finally releasing his secret weapon for readings built from years of experience.
Imagine no more.
Welcome to The Oracle Deck
WHAT IS THE DECK FOR?
The Oracle deck is a multi-purpose tool. Originally designed to be my own personal approach to the classic fortune telling oracle, and built from years of study with Tarot, Astrology, Symbology, it has become an adaptable tool, with uses in readings, games, solving writers block and many more.
Divination tools have been used throughout the ages to give perspective and insight on situations. I have never been of the belief that the divination tools of old have any inherent magical powers, but instead give a unique lens through which to look at problems to unlock answers within yourself. With this in mind I set about designing a deck of symbols that represent archetypes that are universally recognisable and multi-layered. Each symbol has a literal meaning, and a number of symbolic meanings which are instantly recognisable and offer to highlight different perspectives and elements of a situation. Using these archetypes allows a shortcut to accessing the subconscious and give new perspectives on existing problems, which grants you new knowledge and guidance.
Each symbol has been selected and designed because of their instantly recognisable meanings, which in turn means the Oracle Deck is instantly accessible for those interested in the tool, turning reading situations into a interactive group experience. This makes the deck perfect for serious readers, or simply people looking to have an interesting skill to liven up even the most dull of dinner parties. As a result, The Oracle has become my go-to divination tool of choice in my professional work, giving the most accurate and engaging readings I have ever given.
Whilst the Oracle Deck is a powerful reading tool, it also has a number of fun inbuilt games that can be played by any age with ease. The games are not only fun, but also further the understanding of the meanings of the cards. This means that whilst playing you are also deepening your connection with the symbols making your readings stronger.
Not only that, but also for creative types it is a great tool for getting over writers block. Stuck with writing a story? Draw a few cards and apply the meanings to the next stage of the story for a piece of inspiration. Again because of the Oracle Deck’s usage of archetypical symbols it is able to tap into universal emotions and themes, that will add depth and energy to any creative endeavour.
The Oracle Deck is also a perfect alternative to a deck of cards for magicians looking for a prop to perform some more esoteric magic with.
Telling you about myself always feels a bit awkward, as it always comes across as braggadocios. So instead I’ll post my professional bio which is written in the third person. I mean I still wrote it, but if it’s in the 3rd person, it’s less awkward isn’t it?

Risks and challenges
The deck is fully designed and ready to go to print with a printers I have worked with on a number of projects in the past. The only possible delay will be with the postal deliveries, but we already have a team of postal elves ready to package and send the decks out to our supporters reducing shipping and handling times.
As ever with Kickstarter in the unlikely event we don't hit our target funding aim all your pledges return to you, and if we do then you get a lovely reward. So there is no risk in backing the Oracle Deck.
We will also be keeping any and all supporters fully up-to-date with our progress both here on Kickstarter, and on my Twitter page (twitter.com/isyourmindsafe) so you'll always be in the loop!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
