Update 10/14: The Magical Child Oracle is done! Pre-orders open on Oct. 24th for a limited time. This is my 6th release and I am so happy to present this sweet project to you.
I had wanted to release the Magical Child Oracle following the Divine Muses Oracle completion in 2019. But as life would have it, the oracle got shelved multiple times.
After four years of being on and off the back burner, the Magical Child Oracle cards are done! The guidebook is also now complete. See details below.
About the Magical Child Oracle
The Magical Child Oracle is an invitation to play, explore, and reconnect with the divine, eternal, and magical inner child.
The idea here is to bring more wonder, hope, and magic back into our hearts, and to clear some of the pessimism, doubt, and judgment that can sometimes cloud the adult mind.
The magical child wants us to focus more on the divine beauty and joy—all the magic—that still exists in this world.
This oracle is intended for mystics who want to light-heartedly connect with their inner child. Anyone who pursues inner work, especially inner child, knows it can be intense and emotional sometimes. This deck is for anyone who could use a break from shadow work.
I hope these oracle cards can be sweet reminders of inspiration, healing, and mystical touchstones for the wild, creative, and extraordinary parts of you.
The 44-card deck will be mini/poker size: 2.5" x 3.5". This sizing is so that kids could use the oracle cards too.* I know grownups also love using this size!
The prototype is a 320gsm black core textured card stock. I like how this stock shuffles at this size, so I plan to stick with it.
The deck will come in a matching padded zipper pouch with a violet lining. This combination of colors with the gold zipper and green fabric is magical.
*Please note the book is aimed at adults. There is a section on how to use the cards with kids.
I do not have the physical proof of the book yet, and won't have one until after pre-orders close, but here are screenshots of the design.
The 114 page booklet will be printed in pocket size at 4"x6".
If you're familiar with my previous books, this will be similar but smaller. The only branding on the book will be the info on the spine. The gold on the cover will be printed and not embossed.
I will send out a newsletter when pre-orders open October 24th. If all goes smoothly, I'm hoping these sets can be shipped out first to second week in December for arrival (within the USA) before Solstice!
If you would like to be notified when pre-orders open, please subscribe to my rarely sent newsletter.
Thank you and many Fall blessings.
