A divination system like no other, Polarity Cards (you may know them by the street name of “Waking Dream Cards,” “Metaphor Cards,” “Subconscious Communication Cards,” or “Transformation Cards”) are a self-working deck with a strange mystique, allowing anyone who draws a card to experience a wide-awake dream and effortlessly understand what it all means.
The “magic” of this deck is that every person who draws a card will experience a mind-blowing insight that he or she verifiably didn’t have before and will walk away with less confusion and a greater sense of well-being. It’s as if only the most mystical cards have the power to demystify. Unlike Tarot cards or other well-known reading decks, Polarity Cards are wholly free of dogma and therefore allow for fresh, intuitive understandings that are neither influenced nor hindered by preconceptions. Essentially, the idea is to use these cards as a way to help people read themselves, telling the reader what they see, and then the reader can point out other aspects as desired. There’s no “wrong” way to use this deck or interpret its imagery, as the person who draws a card will discover all of the uncanny significance on his or her own. There is no “trying to make it fit,” as insights come up instantly or clarifications are obvious. The deck genuinely feels “fantastic” because the results are fantastical, yet it’s an entirely useful and pragmatic tool.
SELECTED PRAISE FOR POLARITY CARDS:
"What an amazing deck of cards for triggering new insights! There's a bit of advice in the book Heart of Tarot that a card reader needs to practice getting unstuck from set meanings of the cards, to let go of old ideas and see the cards with fresh eyes. This deck of Polarity Cards allows us to see without being burdened by traditional meanings. It's a wholly fresh approach, though the symbolism is most definitely rooted in the ancient mysteries. Draw a card or two, and with an open mind and heart 'allow' the cards to speak to you, and you'll understand how they truly are "self-intuiting" as promised in the deck's booklet. The cards' meanings truly interact with our specific life situation, in a moment-by-moment unfolding. Depending on the nature of your question, the cards' deep meanings seem to adapt themselves as they bring their messages into focus. I understand that this deck is used by professional magicians who seek to foster amazing experiences that can't be instantly demystified by finding a "how to" on Youtube. It's like a card trick without any trickery being involved, just the real magic of powerful symbolism awakening insights in the viewer." —J. C., an educator from Kentucky
“Fantastic work. I must say first and foremost the designs are simple yet vivid in the overall perception. No need for intricate psychedelic Thoth Tarot like images to really speak to the psyche. ... [The] cards seem to all imply an active process of the mind to make order out of chaos and focus and still one's mind. ... I suspect [the cards] won't really be used in a magickal ritual sense but rather in a sort of meditation seminar that focuses on the theory behind meditation and trying to explain it from a magickal as well as psychological perspective. While they do have some archetypal images, these images seem to work as instrumental rather than inherently purposeful.” —Stefan Wallgrave, Sweden
“I’m nearing the point of obsession. I can’t look away, and don’t want to -- like Tarot cards, but with built-in illumination, and much more fun. Brilliant, says I!” —Jeff Hawkins, Colorado
“The cards come across like a psychological tarot - much more accessible and personal and open to individual interpretation.” —David Manley, New York
