"Oracle Of The Universe" Oracle Deck Review
Last Updated: November 13, 2023
The “Oracle of the Universe” oracle deck by Stacey Demarco (Author), and Kinga Britschgi (Illustrator) has been released since October 1st 2023 and offers a mix of mythology, of science, and perspective. Each card comes with it’s own Words Of Power, affirmative statements that tie in to the theme but empower you spiritually, and this is the latest addition to Stacey and Kinga’s awesome oracle deck collaborations, specifically branching out into constellations, nebulas and galaxies.
What's In The Box?
Guidebook: 160+ pages including card spreads, Words of Power, scientific tags and assistance for stargazing.
Artwork: Digital celestial images and graphics including a constellation shape, and one word summary for each card relating to it’s theme by Kinga.
Total Cards: 44 cards
Inclusivity: Plenty of POC and animal usage instead of people for sex/gender alignment.
Environmental Impact: TBC; Printed & Bound in China (No charitable mentions, no 1% for the planet etc) but deck comes with free downloadable app.
Unique Deck Points: I love the science bit because OF COURSE we love some critical thinking with our divination. Of courseeeee we love to know the mythologies behind each tale, and ponder on what our ancestors thought about and talked to each other about whimsically as they too looked out into the universe, catching eyes with Vega and Sirius the Dog Star. Stacey and Kinga themselves are quite the dream team together, and it shows through their works like this oracle deck; at this point it’s a guarantee of quality and hard work.
Downside of the Deck
This deck is not for everyone. If you’re looking to connect with a deity, this would be too vague in terms of conversation that would leave you filling the gaps or jumping to conclusion. An example of this would be if you pulled Orion – “The Hunt”. Like yes it could be associated with Artemis, but it also could suggest Herne, Odin, Gwydion or King Arthur. And the card itself actually means you need to pay attention to those around you, versus your skill as a hunter or actually going on a hunt, so there’s a slight disconnect when reading. A way to counteract this may be to just completely discard the guidebook, and just go off the card keyword as a prompt in your readings.
My Favourite Card
Scorpius. The keyword is “retribution” but the card is more to do with how you react to “enemy energy” and really getting to understand your personal values, and the values of others that may conflict with this, and understanding the repercussions of any interactions. It’s a great card for reflection and personal growth. Other stand-out cards include Cassiopeia, Andromeda, and Draco.
The Community Says
This deck really resonates with them. I put the cards to the test with the community on Instagram to show that it genuinely is a gorge deck, and here is what some of the lovely folks had to say about the deck.
“I really love the detailed description behind the cards and the way to find them in the sky is unique to this deck.” shared Alexis.
“It is so amazing that this card is hitting exactly where I am right now. I really love that the card both holds a very beautiful message and reminder and also has a story about the background mythology for the card… I find that so interesting and eye-opening… I have a huge interest in and fascination about the stars, so the fact that there is also information about that is amazing 😍” shared Camilla .
“It is indeed lovely! In my case it is accurate as well” shared Eduardo.
Generally, the reiterating themes for folks was that this deck was accurate for them, that the Words of Power really were powerful messages that stuck with them, and that the artwork was gorgeous.
Why I Love This Deck
I love the science-y bit because of course, and I love the artwork too. I am such a passionate astrologer, and it’s so nice to see more than just the western zodiac being used in a deck – sharing about Andromeda and Helix is awesome to find in an oracle deck, providing more fluidity to readings.
I feel that those who would love this deck are those who use astrology a lot in their practice, the cosmic witches who want to connect deeper with aspects of the universe, and those who use a lot of archetype energy in their practice. This deck can be worked with for many different purposes, and those who are looking to incorporate more science-based divination (or grounded critical thinking in general) into their practice will definitely enjoy this deck.

Thank you for reading my super honest review! Until next time xox
I have been passionate about reading divination for more than 15 years. This gives me a unique perspective when it comes to creating fun, supportive and creative tarot spreads. I hope they help you find the clarity and insight you are looking for.
The “Oracle of Pluto” deck by Graveyard Roses’ own Aubrey Houdeshell and illustrated by Rose Ides offers a unique 55 card deck perspective – an ode to the deity of transformation, whilst engaging in the now meeting your shadow where it is.
The “Earth and Bone” oracle deck by Sirian Shadow was created to help connect with both shadow and your otherworldly guides; this deck aims to honor concepts of transformation and rebirth in our life.
The Mythos Tarot by Helena Elias is a deck I’d instantly say is more art and devotional work than it is a simple divination tool.
