Hwaet! Listen up! So begins the tale of Beowulf and what the Scandinavian tribes believed was the journey each of us takes to achieve immortality. The ancient energy that inspired the magical world and adventurous spirit of the poem now inspires this first deck based on the epic story, providing guides and symbols for the seeker. Use this oracle as a tool to reveal where you are on your path, as well as what or who is influencing your journey. The voice of the skald, the poet of the Viking Age, coming through this oracle, leads you to an inner, spiritual place and provides you with a “Seeing” of what the gods have chosen to reveal and a “Knowing” of what is to come. Connecting with the adventures and heroic deeds of the warriors and the adversaries they encounter, both human and magical, makes their universal paths ones that affect all who read about them. Courage then, seeker, in your quest!
