POESIS is a collection of 77 oracle cards that is designed to call us within when we have questions, trusting that we already have all the answers in the centre of our being. The cards combine art and poetry to help cultivate one’s own intuitive abilities when it comes to decision making, knowing that our intuition can be a dependable source of guidance.
HOW TO USE POSESIS:
It’s important to understand the ancient wisdom “As above, so below; as within so without” - what we experience in the external world is a mirror of what is in the internal. In the same way, the words and images on the cards reflect our current energetic state. When we ask the cards for insights, we are really strengthening and working with our own inner guidance. The cards will highlight themes we should pay attention to regarding our questions, and when combined, they form a kind of poetry that resonates at the centre of our being.
There are 77 cards in the deck, each representing a different stage or experience, and altogether they make up a life’s journey. While each card carries its own significant energy, there’s no one definite way to look at it. How you interpret the words and images is more important than its universal, societal signification. Some words and images might bring back a past memory, remind of a specific person, or reflect our hopes and fears. Notice the first insights that came to mind, feel how they are trying to speak to you and consider how that ties into your personal experience. To begin, we invite you to pull a few cards and start forming a narrative with the words.
POESIS was created with the divine feminine journey in mind, which offers a nurturing energy to work with. As our society has been so goal driven and focused on action, there is a need for tenderness and emotional connection to come through for balance and support, especially in these unprecedented times.

"As an attempt to break preconceived notions about divination tools belonging only to esoteric or supernatural spheres, we wanted to create a tool that is accessible to people in all age groups and from all beliefs systems and walks of lives; this is visually stimulating, and with self empowerment as the focus. POESIS can be used for intuition, inspiration, divination, self reflection, or even a way to to connect with others and share our stories. The cards are versatile and can be used in any free-form intuitive readings or spreads."
