Egyptian Scarab Oracle
by deTraci Regula, art by Kerigwen

Egyptian Scarab Oracle Ancient Egypt was a place of great spiritual passion. There existed a large and complex religious tradition, with much belief, ceremony, and ritual. It was widely believed that the Divine spoke to people through the ordinary symbols of daily life; such as the lotuses in a pond, the direction of the wind, and the flight of a bird. People paid attention to these signs, with the sincere wish of creating balance and harmony within their lives. The art of divination also took place in city streets, among ordinary people, who learned to read signs in dough, thread, or sand.

Egyptian Scarab Oracle Inspired by a dream of author deTraci Regula, a modern priestess of Isis, the Egyptian Scarab Oracle is a set of thirty artistically sculpted scarabs, each with their own hieroglyph and meaning. They come with a silky satin pouch that is easy to use and attractive, and a full size book. This is a wonderful device for speaking with the Divine that clearly draws upon the influence and inspiration of ancient Egyptian forms of divination. The system is simple - "shuffle" the scarabs in their pouch, reach in, and choose one. An alternate idea is to simply fan them out, face down, and draw one. One scarab can be chosen at a time, or full readings using several scarabs can be done for more comprehensive reflection on an issue. The scarabs themselves, although made out of acrylic, are adorable. They are well-designed and enjoyable to use.

Egyptian Scarab Oracle What I really love about this set is the thoroughness of the interpretations. Regula has divided her interpretations into categories, so it is easy to determine exactly what each scarab means. One quick example of this was when I asked the Oracle where I would be moving. I accidentally chose two scarabs from the pouch. Under the category "Location," the interpretation said "mountain . resort." This immediately meant something to me because I happen to live in a mountain resort town. The second scarab, for the same category said, "travel by river." This also meant something to me, because a house I may move into is just down the river from where I live now. The Oracle has proven to be just as interesting and accurate in other inquiries as well. The categories provided for each scarab are: Love, Money, Career, Family, Health, Spiritual Path, Types This Scarab Can Represent, Timing, and Location. In addition, each scarab is given an introductory explanation. This shares the history of its meaning with us, and gives us preliminary insights.

Regula's writing is sincere and shows an obvious devotion to her subject. Her experience as a priestess is evident. She offers us an invocation to goddesses, a ritual to do with the scarabs, and ideas for further work. Her readings are all interesting and effective and focus on self-development and personal happiness.

The set is recommended to anyone who enjoys the more tactile experience of playing with runes, stones, or ogham sticks. It is a sweet and fun, but surprisingly wise system.
