The Empty Cup Oracle is artist Stasia Burrington's original collection of 40 cards; personal symbols lovingly rendered in minimalist black ink.
A NOTE FROM THE ARTIST This deck is a practical survival toolkit to strengthen intuition + find guidance when things feel hard or murky, or when you just want (need?) a little kick in the ass. I intend these cards to function as a sort of compass, to help you listen to yourself and what you really need in the moment. The messages in these cards are things you already know, but if you’re anything like me, reminders are nice.
The symbolism and iconography are inspired by growing up as an Asian-American in the Pacific Northwest, playing in the woods and in the dirt, looking up at the stars, falling, getting hurt, getting up and falling again.
Included is a 60-page guidebook, detailing card meanings and backstory for the deck.

The cards measure 2.75''×4.75'' (70mm×120mm) on 300gsm smooth matte art paper and are encased in a beautiful, sturdy lidded box featuring the card back design. The box features gold foil details, and the cards themselves have a matte gold edging.
