There’s a video in French and written review in English below. La vidéo est en français tandis que l’article ci-dessous est en anglais. Je réponds aux mêmes questions (mais pas forcément de la même manière).
The White Fox Oracle is an indie oracle deck created by Sabine Cazassus aka Zedoras.
3 things I love the most about it.
Even though I’ve only been using it for a few days, I can answer with no hesitation:
- Its generosity! At once, it’s obvious Sabine put a lot of work and love into it. She wants us to receive this deck as a companion. And it shows! It’s simultaneously straight-forward and sweet. In the texture as well: the mate cards’ softness feel like a comfy duvet. The vibe of radical softness and generosity reverberates in the colours. It’s not just a cute deck: the palette of greens, blues, teal alongside warmer tones ranging from yellow to a warm pink wrap the deck in an elemental atmosphere. The presence of the elements is further confirmed with 4 animal cards who appear to work as guardians of the 4 elements. Besides, it’s worth noticing 3 « realm » cards, representing the animal, vegetal, and mineral realms. The White Fox Oracle is inhabited by some strong spirits – or helpers who might guide you to the spirit-world. For those who want to use it this way, it favorises interactions with « the Invisible ». Very witchy indeed! 😊
- From there on, you can perhaps guess 2 of its other qualities.
It’s comprehensive. Its 50 cards cover a wide range of topics from trivial (although it’s not a mere a daily-life-oriented oracle deck) to sacred. Including relationships (social medias, friends, environment, deities, with yourself and so on), creativity and knowledge, weather and seasons (metaphorically or matter-of-factly), all kinds of travels, mental and emotional circumstances, and much more. A generalist deck, to sum it up. It’s rare enough in an oracle deck to highlight it.
It’s interactive. It’s meant to be, and it really works that way. In the LWB, the statement is clear: we don’t get so much information, we’re supposed to get to know the deck. I know it can be overwhelming! However, we’re not left to ourselves because the whole conception enables us to get to know (hear, feel, see…) the White Fox Oracle. It’s friendly, not impressive. There are a couple of keywords for each card you can refer to if you feel stuck. And, well-hidden, link to an internet page provides more information about the author’s intentions for each of the 50 cards. The deck is gifted to us as a companion.
I’ve come up with a little theory. The White Fox Oracle comes with indications and clues but it will gain presence and strength in interaction with us, making it special. The WFO is therefore a deck it’s easy to personify. It seems to have a life of its own, just for us. I wouldn’t say I usually enjoy attributing a personality to a deck. With this one, it’s an organic process for me . Interactivity also mean I don’t only project unto it. It replies back somehow.
3 things I’m not sure about.
