The Labyrinth Oracle: Cards for the Spiritual "Path"

Post by Cruiser1 » 09 Nov 2017, 20:00

"The Labyrinth Oracle: Cards for the Spiritual Path" is a deck with the theme of Mazes and Labyrinths. It's designed for spiritual seekers and is therefore less material in its focus. It has 109 cards, which is much more than the 78 in a standard Tarot deck. Instead of four suits centered around the four elements, it has three suits (Arches, Flags, and Obelisks) centered around the cardinal/fixed/mutable modes of being. See above for example artwork, and see below for the "Seven" cards from each suit.

I designed the deck, and my sister created all 109 pieces of artwork. The following article describes the creation process of the Seven of Arches card in detail, with pictures of the drawing in progress: http://kathypullen.com/nl/?nid=89747

Welcome to the forum :wave: . That's a very neatly drawn deck and it's great to see a decent number of cards. The Labyrinth theme is interesting and I like that Room card. It's like part of the public gardens I'll be taking one of the dogs round at lunchtime, which has a lot of different sections hidden by tall hedges :icon_cool: .

I had a lot of labyrinthine fun yesterday :icon_e_biggrin: . To start with, when working I play music from a player in which I work through the albums in alphabetical order. The first one yesterday was Art Bears "Hopes & Fears" which in addition to having a labyrinth symbol on the insert and printed on the CD itself, actually contains two songs entitled "Labyrinth" and "Maze". Then when I got to the gardens they had a notice up with the same symbol saying they were going to make an actual labyrinth there. On returning I said to Mrs 2dogs that the Enchanted Map Oracle cards had a labyrinth card, I really didn't think I could cut it out of the deck but would have a go as it worked for a Tarot card a few weeks back. Well I failed to get it, at which point she said "give it here and let me have a go" - and cut it straight out :icon_e_surprised: . So it would be interesting to see what you could do with these cards - we have a monthly Oracle exchange group going which you would be welcome to join next month :thumbup: .

What a beautiful and totally original approach to designing a deck.

Is the deck finished? Available for purchase?

Thank you! :) In recent years, walking a Labyrinth has become a popular spiritual activity and a tool used to gain insight. The Labyrinth Oracle is a related method that uses Labyrinths and Mazes for insight and inspiration.
