witchOnce again, it's technically Monday now -- past midnight Eastern time -- and here I am on Dreamwidth, so it's time for another Magic Monday.  Ask me anything about occultism and I'll do my best to answer it. Any question received by midnight Monday Eastern time will get an answer, though it may be Tuesday sometime before I get to them all.

With that said, have at it!

Sacred Geometry Oracle

I ordered a copy of the Sacred Geometry Oracle. It unfortunately came in the form of *only* the guidebook. While I may be able to press the bookstore I ordered it from for the cards (or at least a partial refund), I'm rather taken with the notion of making my own set of cards, using markers and matte finish blank playing cards (as well as compasses, rulers, etc).

The book is a very interesting read, by the way. I'm looking forward to learning the system. I just have a couple of small questions about it for now.

(1) When it comes to making my own set, do you have any particular cautions to keep in mind as I make it? E.g. it doesn't terribly matter what design is on the reverse side of each card, right?

(2) Also, about the square-circle-triangle symbol that you suggest we visualize as part of the reading ritual. As it appears on in the book, the square is nearly-but-not-quite centered to the circle. (The corners of the squares appear to have different areas.) I am supposing that this is due to pixelization of computer generated art printed at insufficiently high resolution. But it also occurred to me that the process used to construct the shape by hand may result in a slightly off center design, and/or this imperfection is intentional due to the symbolic impossibility of truly squaring the circle by geometric means, or something like that. Would you mind confirming that when one visualizes the shapes, each one should indeed be centered?

I am happily using the deck for over half a year now. The design looks a bit out of place, yes, but I am still happy about the material.

Are there any plans for a second edition?

I know you've stated unequivocally that you have no interest in self publishing, but if this is a project dear to your heart, you might consider looking into what it would take to regain your publication rights. At that point you could offer said rights to the publisher of your choice.

Glad to hear that! I shouldn't have doubted you'd be right on top if that :)
