ABOUT THE DECK
Each card is heavily illustrated with provocative dream-like imagery and surreal situations, and each card is accompanied by a deep mythos comprising the fictional journey of the Inner Mask, and the philosophical underpinnings of the card. The four suits of the Tarot of the Inner Mask are all influencers on the self: Masks (transformation) Mirrors (recognition) Shadows (non-recognition) and Veils (occlusion). The cards and their meanings are a starting place: the circuit is completed by the reader's experiences, import and interpretation.
This oracle deck follows the journey of a creature called the Inner Mask (it/its) who wanders through realms of the subconscious.
Another "character" in this deck includes the Empty Moon (it/its & sometimes she/her) who usually can be found in a realm even deeper than the plane inhabited by the Inner Mask. The Empty Moon can be said to symbolize the shadow self, calling out to the other regions of the conscious mind to be known.
At its base, the Inner Mask Oracle is a series of images, drawn from a storm of thoughts concerning the self: its creation, its discovery, its destruction, its division and wholeness. This line of thinking flows down routes of psychology, philosophy, sociology, history, spirituality, and magic. The Inner Mask represents a being in inquisition with itself; looking back, looking in. These images have assembled themselves in a form, the form asks to be a deck of cards. As a deck, it offers a narrative that is randomizable, recombinable, up to the reader to assemble into meaning.
