A hauntingly appealing oracle deck that connects us with our past and opens the potential of our future through our ancestor archetypes, or spirit guides.

Your collective family of ancestor archetypes awaits you in The Beloved Dead oracle. They will have a lot to say about your day-to-day interactions, interpersonal dynamics, and inner life. Ask the Beloved Dead a question and connect with consciousness that has left the land of form and now resides energetically as Spirit.
Every spirit in this deck is a bright star in the constellation that lights your soul’s enchanted path to the unlimited potential that is the future. These are the voices of your protective and guiding ancestors—spirit helpers who understand that there’s great work to be done every minute you spend on this side of the veil. At times, The Beloved Dead oracle cards will represent a specific soul, living or in spirit; at other times they may convey an experience, memory, event, or outlook, and always deliver a message related to the context of your question.
This deluxe set contains an 81-card deck and 144-page full-color guidebook.
