The Wild Unknown Pocket Archetypes Deck (Hardcover)
From New York Times bestselling author of The Wild Unknown Tarot who has redefined tarot for the twenty-first century comes an original oracle deck and guidebook that takes seekers on a journey of self-discovery—now in a compact, pocket-sized format.
Kim Krans illuminates the revelatory power of archetypes—the ancient, universal symbols that have endured across time and cultures and reside deep in our shared psyche. The Wild Unknown Pocket Archetypes Deck fosters a profound understanding of our complex personalities, proclivities, and behaviors.
In this new pocket-sized edition, The Wild Unknown Pocket Archetypes Deck includes 78 gorgeous circular oracle cards divided into four suits: The Selves, The Places, The Tools, and The Initiations. Each archetype has been carefully selected for its symbolic potency and the lesson at the core of its nature, such as The Poet—representative of deep emotional creativity and the drive to find our truth—and The Vision, which is emblematic of the lifelong journey to fulfill our destiny. Accompanying the deck is a 224-page hand-lettered, fully illustrated guidebook written and designed by Krans, which details the meaning behind each card and offers clear, grounded explanations of the many spreads, practices, and concepts that power the Archetypes deck.
A beautiful and inclusive tool for self-exploration, The Wild Unknown Pocket Archetypes Deck will enchant spiritual, cultural, and intellectual seekers. It is an exquisitely designed work of art that embodies the mystery, glamour, and allure of Krans’s beloved work while introducing a new realm of magic and depth to The Wild Unknown.
