Using the Mortem Oraculum

 

The Mortem Oraculum oracle deck may provide clarity by reflecting aspects of your shadow self.  The shadow self should not carry a negative connotation, rather should be a reminder that without darkness, light does not exist.

 

 Though we provide suggestions for use below, know you are your own greatest teacher. 

Listen to your inner voice and see what resonates.

 

 

Suggested Reading techniques for the Mortem Oraculum 

 

Before delving into your reading, remove all the cards from the box and lay them out one by one. Take the time to look at each image, read the words and see if anything jumps out at you. Take some time to allow your intuition to run free and process the cards.

 

 

 Suggested one card reading

1. Find a calm quite space (a calm mindset is a receptive mindset)

 

2. Ask yourself if you have a specific question or are looking for a general reading

 

(If you have a question in mind, phrase in an open-ended way. Phrasing the question in this manner will assist you in developing your personal power. Open ended questions usually begin with who, what, when, where and why. One example may be, what can I do to best prepare myself for today’s events?

 

3.Now with the question in mind,  pick up your cards and begin to shuffle them in whichever way feels best to you.

 

4. When you feel the deck has been shuffled enough, cut the deck in half and place the bottom half over the top.

 

 5. When you’re ready, turn over the top card and allow the message to be interpreted.    

 

 Remember cards can link to all aspects of your life.  If you have asked about a love issue and the card seems to pertain to your work, take a moment to reflect upon how your work life is affecting your love life. Trust that the card that was selected is the right card for you now.

 

Note: Before you decide to research the meaning of a card, allow yourself a few moments to absorb it. Try asking silently or aloud, how does this card relate to me now? After asking, take the time to listen to your own intuition. Perhaps a memory will surface, perhaps a familiar fragrance will appear or perhaps a specific thought will enter your mind.  

 

There are no right or wrong answers, follow your intuition.
