The Surseasonal Oracle

Surreal & Seasonal

The Surseasonal Oracle honors the four liminal seasons and all fellow creatures enduring the ever turning of the wheel.

It awakens the sleeping inner child to the wisdom they came in with:

the (sub)conscious alignment with the changing seasons and the humble, quiet attention paid to all creatures here before us.  

Animal familiars are here to help us, to guide us when we feel lost, tired or untethered. They remind you of your craft, your talents, and your intuition.

The Surseasonal Oracle cards tickle that whimsical, seasonal side of you that you may have forgotten along the way. 

The Deck of Cards includes:

16 Cards of Autumn

16 Cards of Winter

16 Cards of Spring

16 Cards of Summer

16 Cards of Tools of the Craft

 

The guidebook contains over 200 pages of comprehensive interpretations for the corresponding season, familiar and craft of each card.

Seasons of the Oracle

Spring is magical and transitional

Summer is mundane and external

Autumn is magical and transformational

Winter is mundane and internal

 

Familiars of the Oracle

Along with the qualities of the season, the animal familiar in the card has a message for you. A (witch's) familiar is an animal with whom one has a special relationship. Unlike pets, dependents or livestock, a familiar is a creature who is more like a colleague, deputy or partner in crime. 

Crafts of the Oracle

The crafts are skills, talents, and practices that enhance one's life, that make the mundane magical. These crafts invite us to not only be more mindful in our rituals but to enjoy them, as well.

Tools of the Crafts

The tools of the crafts act like court cards; they correspond to one of the suits (seasons) but can also stand on there own. Instead of suggesting characters in one's life, they often suggest literal, physical tools, materials or ingredients that can be used in a spell, craft or ritual. 

Inspiration

When my partner and I moved to a small village of 200 residents near Interlaken, Switzerland, in 2014, I spent my mornings and evenings walking our dog along a footpath beside the Lake of Brienz. Switzerland the land over is beautiful, diverse, and carefully preserved, but the walk from Niederried to Ringgenberg is especially charming. Having lived a year there, I saw each season in its glory, the curious crevasses in the rock walls, the gentle waves of the lake against the sudden banks, the wildflowers that flourished in the meadows, and the vegetables that swelled in the well-tended gardens. My imagination was sparked like that one of my childhood, and I began to envision a  fantastical world of miniature creatures and inconspicuous abodes. Thus, a series both surreal and seasonal was developed. Since then, I have meticulously captured scenes and animals all over Switzerland and composed them in delightfully whimsical ways in hopes of provoking a curious smile. I have also incorporated those animals that live with us now at Mulin Sura in Surselva, Switzerland.
