Divination has been practiced across the globe over millennia, with tools that have helped many cultures gain an understanding of their world, their environment and themselves. While there are a variety of tools that have stood the test of time, new tools are being developed, with the underlying intention of making the art of divination accessible, relatable and inclusive for all.
This week on INSIDE THE WOONIVERSE, we shift into a new and magical portal called Creators Corner, where I sit down with fabulous creators and visionaries of divination tools.
Two highly creative cosmic creatures are featured in this episode: Chris-Anne and Krystal Banner. Chris-Anne is an artist, marketing strategist, and the creatrix behind wildly popular decks like Light Seer’s Tarot, The Muse Tarot, Sacred Creators Oracle and The Tarot of Curious Creatures. Krystal Banner is an artist, author, former engineer and the creative mastermind behind highly popular decks like Absolute Affirmations, Kaleidadope Tarot, Love on the Record, The Price of Love Oracle and Life is Like a Board Game Tarot.
