Nomadic Oracle Reviews

The Nomadic Oracle is a set of 56 cards that brings together the senses, the five elements, aura and chakra energies. It's deliberately independent of any religious beliefs, but draws on connections with the I Ching. The set includes a full companion book.

Review by Bonnie Cehovet

Some time ago I did a review on the Nomadic Oracle Companion Book. I loved the concept, but the cards had to be downloaded from the site. To my great joy, the cards have now been published! Printed in Malaysia, the vibrant colors do great justice to the intent behind this divination system.

A bit of background on the divination system itself. Mallek views the oracle itself as an energy body, independent of any formal 9or informal) religious systems. Our five senses are seen as five different frequencies through which we maintain contact with our outer world. Each sense has a name: Fire/Smell, Water/Taste, Earth/Touch, Air/Sound and Consciousness/sight.

This is a 56 card deck, and is broken down in the following manner:

1. Family of the Emotions
2. Realm of the Active Path
3. Realm of Time
4. Realm of Guidance
5. Family of Protection
6. Realm of Territories
7. Realm of Abundance
8. Family of Transition
9. The Senses
10. The Elements & Spirits
11. The Infinite Self

There are two Jesters in this deck, and they are read as “Not” cards. When one of the two Jesters is drawn, another card is always placed next to it. The second card is read as the “Not” card. Whatever the energy of the card is, when placed next to a Jester, that energy is “Not” (available, active).

The basic spread that Mallek uses with this divination system is called a “terrestrial” reading. The first card shows the context within the question that the oracle will focus on. The second card represents the “here and now”, the present situation. The third card represents terrestrial, practical guidance. It may also represent the possible consequences of an action that the user has in mind. The fourth card represents the energies inherent in a problem or issue. The fifth card represents an overview of the situation. The sixth card represents what you have been receiving, or may wish to receive about an issue. The seventh card represents creative opportunities – those the user may wish to create, or to create the conditions for. With the exception of the Jesters, each card has a relationship with one of the frequency zones, giving it either a natural or neutral place within the spread.

The cards are 3 ¾” by 5 ¼”, of good quality card stock. The back show a collage of colors and faces (well hidden), while the fronts show a narrow white border, followed by two thin black borders with white space between them, followed by another inch of white space. The images are full color, in the center of the card.

Across the white space at the bottom, in black lettering, we see the card name, followed by the element and family that it represents. For instance, Judgment is Earth In the Family of the Emotions. Some of my favorite cards are: Kundalini (which shows a serpent raising his head), Fire (which shows a pale face in the middle of the card, with a pair of eyes above it, and a colorful background), Gathering (which shows a large circle that resembles earth), and Stopping The World (which shows a covered setting in a forest).

This is a unique deck that will open up individual understanding of one's world. Be aware that there is some full nudity.
