The oracle deck of Southern folklore & magic

With hand-painted illustrations and evocative prompts, the Southern Gothic Oracle is a must-have set of tools for readers interested in delving deep into Southern folklore and magic. This oracle deck enhances personal intuition by presenting objects and symbols rooted in the various spiritual belief systems prevalent in the American South: a potent mix of Mid-South traditions, Ozark wisdom, Appalachian legends, Biblical scripture, and Hoodoo.


The Southern Gothic Oracle and its accompanying products are all written and illustrated by Stacey Williams-Ng in her Memphis studio, La Panthère Studio. A multidisciplinary artist, Stacey takes great pride in researching the various traditions and legends of the South in order to add depth and meaning to her divinitory product line. Her LinkedIn learning class, “Storytelling for Designers,” has been viewed by over 40,000 students in 17 countries. Stacey is a 10th-generation American Southerner, a mother of two, a dog person, a pretty decent cook, and a roller skater.
