I wanted to do an update and announcement regarding the custom deck I’m creating! First off, the custom deck has a name – The Seed Oracle. This name has been there all along but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to change it or not, but it stuck and I love it. So what is new with this deck?! For starters, I am only two cards away from finishing up all the cards!! The deck will contain 50 cards since I like a thicker oracle deck to shuffle and this number felt right.
The Seed Oracle is more than an oracle deck, I wanted to create this deck for multiple uses and not just card slinging. Within this deck, there are cards like:
- New Moon, Full Moon, and the Sun
- Elements (4 in total)
- The Void
- Cards for manifesting
- Cards for self love
- … the list goes on
I don’t want to post every card to this deck since I personally love some surprise when I buy a new deck. I often watch deck review video’s of a deck I want or have ordered, but skip around the video so I don’t see all the cards and ruin it for myself lol! Anyone else like this?
Now on to the announcement!
I will be making this deck available to purchase! When I started this deck in 2015, I really wasn’t open or interested in the idea of releasing this deck but over time I changed. I just don’t want to keep it to myself! I do not have any set dates just yet, I am hoping to get a sample copy printed in September, if all goes well and there aren’t many fixes (and if I get the booklet done), I hope to list a pre-order up for this deck in October.
The deck will be around $50 and come with a LWB (little white book) and I am toying with the idea of making larger guidebook for optional purchase to those interested in that. I have a lot to say about each card so doing a larger book only seems fitting, plus I would love to load it with extra things you can do with the cards and such. Each deck will be a limited release edition of just 100 copies to help me from overloading and stressing out, I tend to do that easily. If the first 100 copies sell out and others still want a copy, I will open up a second edition for pre-order and so forth.
A little about the cards:
Each card has a light and shadow aspect (similar to reversals), as well as questions to ask yourself during a reading or daily card pull. As for card stock, I am back and forth with doing a linen finish on these cards or just your standard smooth card finish. The cards are standard tarot card size. They will be borderless and have a number at the bottom of each card for easy look up in the book. Some cards have a title on them and some do not, the words are mostly just to represent the energy or feeling of the card.
I have done several readings with this deck and have also partnered it up with a tarot deck, it reads beautifully! Also, i’m planning to add some custom spreads to go in the larger guidebook to share.
Words cannot describe how much I love this deck, it was a true labor of love… and a lot of glueing and paper cuts! I would love to hear your thoughts on this deck so far, anything you would love to see in the book, etc.
