Seasons of the Witch: Samhain Oracle

A long time ago, in October, I had my birthday and went on a bit of a spending spree.  Part of my spoils was Seasons of the Witch:  Samhain Oracle.

I don’t know the words to describe the artwork.  It’s something old fashion and primitive, like Grandma Moses.

And the fact that the creators want to make an oracle deck based on all the sabbats?  Yes, I am that bitch that will buy them all. 

With the help of @owlandbonestarot interview spread, let’s see what these cards hold!

Where does your wisdom lie?  Bat, deep digging into the corners of my mind.  Yes, tell me more.

What is your inner strength?  Black Cat, pulling on me.  You will make me grow, one way or another (feel like that is a card theme this year).

What might you not see?  Spider, got jokes, I see.  You will not see because it’s all a mystery.  I feel that this deck is playing with me a bit.  Moving on. 

What makes you soar?  Healer, hmmm.  You keep saying dark and mysterious, but you are a healer at the heart of it all.  Let me think out loud the idea of you being a deck for shadow work.

Where do you feel grounded?  Nature Spirits, yeah, you got jokes.  You will tell the dark truth, but with a joke in your heart.  Are you going to be the darker version of my Flower Speak deck?

Where will you dig in?  Frog,  in the change of things.  I think you are going to be a shadow work deck.

Who are you at your bare bones?  Silence, you are nothing? 

The vibe I get is that this will be a darker version of my Flower Speak deck.  My Flower Speak deck will take your face into their hands and gently say to you, “You dumb fucking bitch.  Let me tell you what you are doing wrong.”

But how is this going to be darker?  I think this deck will be digging into the darkest parts of my soul and pulling things out that I might not want to deal.

I think I am in love, and I cannot wait to start using this deck.
