Coyote and Thunder: Astral Guides

A morning reading. "He is the dust reminder that you need." This beautiful deck was created and given to me by friend, wilderness artist and poet, Obi Kaufmann. You can purchase your own Astral Guides deck on Coyote and Thunder.

"A 52-card, divinatory art-deck based on the stars and their poetic journey across the Northern sky. The Astral Guides work with light to help with particular quandaries. Each card is assigned a star, or a constellation of stars, that when in season, benefit from moving between the Earth and the arm of the Milky Way it lives in. Begin by shuffling the deck well, concentrating on the dilemma. Always consult the deck with specific intention. Draw one, three or five cards depending on the depth and importance of the quandary at hand. Arrange the cards in order, laterally so the orienting symbols on both sides of the card line up. Count the numbers, consider how the orienting symbols align, recognize the seasonality of each card, move through the poetry. If the numbers add up to an even sum, if the orienting symbols don't align, or if the season isn't right, don't pay too much attention to the reading: the door needs to be open correctly for the guides to grant clear divination."
