About

 ... inspired by the goddess and her many faces: Mother, Maiden, and Crone. An oracle deck representing women of all ethnicities, sizes, and ages. One that celebrates women and the beauty within their differences as they journey through life within the lunar cycle. Cards that allow the user to gaze upon the imagery and see their own reflection in the faces of the goddess. An oracle deck where these amazing women are depicted during the Witching Hour, when the veil from our realm to the spirit realm is its sheerest.

  ... that with your financial support and my artistic aspirations, together we can manifest such a deck into life? Well, we can and we shall. 

 ...as you are here inquiring about this spiritual oracle deck. You are awed by the metaphysical world and tools that allow you to tap into the power that gives us insight into our existence and challenges that we face everyday within our lives. I believe that this tool should represent all that we are as women and our journey through life. Therefore, I have created The Witching Hour Oracle. 

 I have a deep love for the goddess, so I wanted to represent her many faces in this oracle deck within the lunar moon 13 month cycle. Each cycle has three cards honoring the Maiden (waxing moon), the Mother (full moon), and the Crone (waning moon). The deck begins with the Wolf Moon and ends with the Cold Moon. Along with the lunar month traits, each wondrous woman is depicted during the Witching Hour, the time when the veil from our realm to the spirit realm is sheer. During the Witching Hour, these women can easily collect magickal energy from the moon.

Funding:

Curious as to why I've chosen to crowdfund this project rather then just finance the printing myself? I have put two years of work into painting these amazing women and quite a bit of personal funds.  With the final cost of this deck totaling $17,800, I need additional financial help from supporters like you to manifest these cards into reality.  Here is where those funds will go:

About the Artist:

My name is Cherie Gerhardt and I have been an artist my whole life. I have a degree in graphic design and have worked in design, printing, and prepress trades. My art business, Mystic Moon Media, LLC., has a reputation for outstanding quality products as I am incredibly particular with where and how my art is printed,  Thank you for your time and your support of my oracle deck!

Risks and challenges

To minimize any delays that could put the manifestation of this oracle deck into jeopardy, I have already completed all art. This will allow me to schedule items to be printed as soon as Kickstarter releases funding.

There is always the risk of needing items fully reprinted when working on a project of this scale. While I have worked "just in case" delays into the timeline, an additional 6-8 weeks could be added if a major printing error occurs.

Please note that the colors of the mock-up digital product images in this campaign may differ slightly from the items you receive.

Due to monitor settings, monitor pixel definitions, limitations of desktop scanners, digital photography, and ink lot variations, I cannot guarantee that the color you see on your screen is an exact color match to the final physical product.
