New York Times bestselling author of The Wild Unknown Kim Krans invites you to discover the ancient mysteries of Alchemy.
A journey to discovering the gold within, Alchemy weaves together the physical and mystical aspects of our lives. The planets, metals, colors, and seasons act as symbols for reflection and open the gateway to the imagination. Now, in this stunning new oracle deck, Krans introduces the magic of alchemy to all those willing to explore, observe, and invoke transformation.
Sitting within a beautiful keepsake box lies a 224-page hand-lettered, fully illustrated guidebook that demystifies the esoteric world of Alchemy, and 71 easy-to-shuffle hexagon cards divided into six suits: The Cosmic Forces, The Colors, The Seasons, The Materials, The Mysteries, and The Operations. Designed and illustrated in Krans’ iconic style of exquisite line art and lush watercolor painting, each card offers a tool for self-study and exploration, such as Saturn, a reminder to examine age-old systems and the Mystical Sister card that brings to mind a resource or ally on our journey. Through observing the symbols and images from the alchemical perspective, we awaken our gifts, engage with the creative mystery of our everyday world, and unite the materials of the soul.
With never-before-seen spreads, such as The Tria Prima that unravels the mythological “story” of the situation, and The Alchemical Union that reveals important dynamics within a relationship, the elegant shape of the oracle cards allows images to meld and transform. A work of art, The Wild Unknown Alchemy Deck and Guidebook will call to readers drawn to personal reflection and growth, and seekers ready to find new realms of spiritual depth.
