Divination & Archetypal Analysis

The use of tarot and oracle cards dates back to the late 14th century. While Tarot cards nowadays are mainly seen as a mirror of the soul, oracle cards are most of the times used as an instrument for fortune telling in a mystical-magical manner. Learn about the difference and my view on it while watching the pictures of some of my own oracle cards that I am actually creating and which will be published in 2021. Enjoy!

Shady Person

In general this card can have the meaning of a person that is not honest or it can mean that something is going wrong. This interpretation is used in a fortune-telling setting When you use the cards in a way to uncover your limiting beliefs and to discover your true self, then this card tells you a lot about your own view on your self on a deeper level. When you dive into the card's symbolism, it tells you that your perspective on yourself or on the world is quite off. On the image you can see that there is only a head of a woman, fixed on the ground. It has lost its connection to ist wholeness, his heart, etc... the situation doesn't allow the woman to a bigger perspective than the one that was implemented and which is symbolized by the mountains within her head. Her potential, her thoughts, her perspective on her true self is blocked and cut off.  The snake around her neck symbolizes that she is captured in her actual situation by a false perspective on herself and on the world...... This is just a short inside of this card and a possible interpretation of it. If you use symbolism like on tarot or oracle cards to find out more about yourself, be sure to use your own interpretation. Everybody is individual and has their own interpretations. Use your own!

House

In general this card can have the meaning of a house and in combination with other cards it will have more different meanings, like with the card "change" it can indicate a move. This interpretation is used in a fortune-telling setting When you use the cards in a way to uncover your limiting beliefs and to discover your true self, then this card stands for your own personality, your own life. Let's take a look at the symbolism: As you can see the house has a lot of windows, but most of them are closed and neither somebody can look outside nor anybody can look outside. The beauty stays hidden for both sides. The closed windows could be symbols for our own limiting beliefs that had been developed during our childhood and had been confirmed through our experiences. The windows show us that as long as we keep these limiting beliefs active, we will not get a view to our true beautiful potential and our true self and as a consequence we keep on going making the false decisions, experiencing unhealthy relationships and circumstances and get confirmed again in our limiting beliefs. The tattoo like surface of the house shows us our conditionings of our life so far which has left its marks in our life. We can not undo something that we have been through, but we can change what we believe. The longer we keep our limiting beliefs that bring us more and more of the same experiences, the more windows stay closed, because the stronger a pattern, the less possible we are able to change our perspective. To change limiting beliefs, we have to replace them and only then we can have new experiences. The card shows us the key how in its blue roof. The color blue stands representative for the throat chakra which mainly is responsible for creativity and communication. We can replace our limiting beliefs by having a conversation with our unconscious mind. The roof of a house that protects us from bad weather conditions is symbolizing our subconsciousness protecting us from dangers and keeping us safe..... This is just a short inside of this card and a possible interpretation of it. If you use symbolism like on tarot or oracle cards to find out more about yourself, be sure to use your own interpretation. Everybody is individual and has their own interpretations. Use your own!

Waiting

In the classical Kipper Card Deck this card originally is titled as "Expectation". The meaning though when used in fortune-telling sessions is basically "Waiting", which is the reason why I renamed it. Waiting means to be patient and is something a lot of people struggle with. When used in a setting, in which you like to find out more about yourself using the cards as a mirror to your soul, the following interpretation could be an inspiration for you:
