Medicine Cards, 1988

My father had the Medicine Cards deck when I was growing up. I remember reading the book cover to cover in one sitting while lying on the living room floor after a particularly frustrating day at school. His deck was misplaced at some point over the years after I moved out. I’ve been looking for a copy recently because it’s honestly the only “oracle style” deck I’ve truly liked working with so far. Kaite Stover gifted me a sealed 1988 copy! It was like opening a time capsule… I was instantly back in my parents’ living room, carpet patterns pressed into my kneecaps and elbows as I poured through the pages getting my first taste of archetypal profile readings (wouldn’t know that term until many years later though) and being super annoyed that Mouse kept showing up in my pulls. I can’t really explain what it’s like to meet back up with this deck so many years later. I think I was 18 the last time I really saw these cards. And Mouse has shown up again; this time I don’t mind. Thank you, Kaite!!! I’m out of words. This truly means a lot to me. Thank you.
