The Living Altar: an Oracle & Spell Deck For The Radical Witch

This deck is absolutely beautiful and full of magic. I think the creators of this deck explain it better than I ever could. Here are their words:

The Living Altar Oracle Deck is a Living Grimoire with each card a charged spell. It is a guide to The Witches Wheel and is intended to serve as both a tutelary and divinatory aide for the  curious observer of Witching Ways, the novice Witch, seasoned  practitioners, and the weathered Witches among us. With this deck we have built an altar of the seasons, the phases of the moon, the stations  of the sun, the journey of life, and have made a holy embodiment of our most sacred relationship with the elements. Each card has been blessed with the elements and infused with spells to empower your inherent magic. You are welcomed to use each card as a focal point for your spell crafting and meditations, as well as an aid in skill set  development. We also encourage you to engage these oracle cards as you would any divinatory tool to enhance your intuitive readings. ​ 

The Deck is Divided into 3 Narrative Arcs that guide you thru The Witches Wheel; with each arc containing spelled cards to help you identify context for your inquiry or workings and indications on where to draw power from (or send power to) in order to make ritual and purpose from your inquiry. 

1St Narrative Arc - Cosmic Source Cards: Elemental Origins & Natural Cycles 

This arc includes spelled cards representing the Source, Elements, Seasons, Moon Phases, & Stations of the Sun. This Arc helps us find equilibrium and directionality.

2nd Narrative Arc - Life Path Cards: Phases of Life & Divine Intervention 

This arc includes spelled cards representing Phases of Life as Rites of Passage, paired with the Seasonal Points of Power (Conventional Wiccan Sabbaths) as concepts of Divine Intervention to draw power from. The spells of this arc are Rebirth & Emergence, Childhood & Promise, Adolescence & Catalyst, Young Adult & Celebration, Adult & Abundance, Midlife & Generosity, Elderhood & Soul Harvest, Death & Solitude. This Arc helps us identify context, healing, and access to universal power in creating ritual & reflections for our inquiries.

3rd Narrative Arc - Everyday Magic Cards : The Elemental Magic of Practical Moments 

This arc includes spelled cards representing the dance of the elements within and thru one another. This dance honors daily opportunities for us to remember and draw upon our relationships with our altar, the spirits, and Witch. The spells of this arc carry us thru the elements within the elements and teach us about the magic of subtlety and nuanced relationship. The spells in this arc are divided into elemental suits. The Earth of Earth - Boundaries, Air of Earth - Identity, Fire of Earth Relationship, Water of Earth - Resource. The Air of Air - Inspiration, Fire of Air - Creativity, Water of Air - Intention, Earth of Air - Choice. The Fire of Fire - Transformation, Water of Fire - Cleansing, Earth of Fire - Ritual, Air of Fire - Creation. The Water of Water - Expression, Earth of Water - Council, Air of Water - Ancestor, Fire of Water - Initiation.

As The Witches Wheel: You’ll see the deck build power as it maps out the cycles of nature from the  Macro Levels; harnessing the rhythms of creation via cosmic and elemental principles, to the Micro Levels; applying these principles to a relationship centered intimacy with the magic of everyday life

As a Tutelary Aide: You can track the elemental and nature based correspondences throughout the  deck and apply their innate principles to your altar working, spell crafting, and to guide the deepening of your relationship with magic.

As an Oracular Aide: You can track the origin, quality, impact, context and directionality of the energy of your inquiry. Each card is a spell, a teacher, and an  oracle meant to resource your readings. Access their wisdom and magic to  focus and inspire ritual around your intentions; make empowered choices  with a renewed confidence and reclaimed sense of agency.
