Nominated for Outstanding Artistic Achievement in the 2020 CARTA Awards by the International Tarot Foundation.
The Divine Muses Oracle set seeks to explore creativity, mysticism, and healing using the archetypal forces found in alchemy, magic, and mythology to support insight, self-realization, and transformation.
These cards help to unlock creative, psychic, and spiritual potential; and invite us to examine our Shadow and unearth our Essence. With this oracle deck, the author, Maree Bento, wanted to explore the various magical, creative, and healing archetypal influences. Maree was drawn to the idea of developing an oracle deck free from the structure of the Tarot or Lenormand. Maree uses both of these systems in her divination work, but asked herself what would happen if I opened myself to whatever archetypal forces came to me?
Well, a structure for the oracle began to unveil itself to her. A synergy of divinatory pathways took shape; multiple voices in concert, calling out universal truths. Archetypes occasionally merging as Maree channeled the artwork, other cards inspiring and begetting others. Two years later, her third deck was birthed; an oracle deck that could be a divine prompt for Maree's intuitive, creative, and spiritual practice, with great potential to be a mystical toolkit for others.
Maree's intention for the purpose of this oracle is to help one:
  • Increase psychic, creative, and spiritual potential
  • Harness magical insight and personal empowerment
  • Identify and understand one's path and its cycles of growth and transformation
  • Better understand the self and others through observing the archetypes in the world, inside and out 
  • Recognize and connect with the shadow aspect of each archetype, honoring one's shadow work
