Deck of Interest—ALICE The Wonderland Oracle

Jul 06 2019 Published by under Anna's Decks of Interest, Llewellyn

Which rabbit do you follow?

Lucy Cavendish, the Godmother of oracular wisdom, first consciously embraced the White Rabbit as her work became recognized in Japan and she embarked on a trip through a country with which she had no prior experience. She chose as her guide an old copy of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Randomly opening the book every day, she let the passage that presented itself inform her physical journey as it connected to the esoteric wisdom that it carried. Alice’s adventures reminded her to follow curiosity (not fear), to embrace differences and the unknown, to make the most of an unpredictable environment, and to understand that alone wasn’t really alone.

Once she decided to translate her experience into an oracle deck, it was Jasmine Becket-Giffith whom she chose to express the wisdom and eccentricity of the journey she was trying to share. Becket-Griffith’s evocative, symbol-laden imagery was more than up to the job. Together they have translated Alice’s journey through the mysterious realms of the subconscious (and creative) aspects of the human brain into a readily accessible series of illustrations which captures the inner wisdom as effectively as Carroll’s original work.
