The Academy of Esoterica
This is a centre of learning and sharing. Its mission is to guide you through the deep the secrets of Oracolarium and related esoteric traditions. Unleash your creativity and let your intuition be inspired by some of the secrets behind the art, music, and stories behind Oracolarium!
The Meaning of each Card
Each card in Oracolarium contains imagery, symbolism, and references from a very wide range of scientific, artistic and magical cultures. It is all there to fuel your imagination, and to give your intuition tools with which to speak to you. Every card was developed in collaboration between Neil Kelso, Andrea Aste, and a cast of inspiring people from a wide range of disciplines and specialisms. To delve deep into the meanings of each card, and the pathways that lead through the deck, follow the links below.
Before embarking, it is good practice to have taken a moment to centre yourself so you are open to hear the subtle nuances which make all the difference in your readings between a vague notion and a powerful idea.
You may like to take a deep breath, and as you shuffle your Oracolarium, ask yourself a simple question, like "I am seeking inspiration - where can I look?" ... draw a card and visit the corresponding page to absorb the card's message fully.
Combining Tarot and Oracolarium
Whilst Oracolarium is a powerful and self-contained all-seeing eye, it is also fluent in other languages and can converse effortlessly with Tarot.
Here is a brief introduction to this practice, and Andrea Aste gives an example reading for Neil Kelso.
Drumroll ... It gives us immense pleasure to share some very special information with you.
We wanted you to hear it first!
Following on from the success of our Oracolarium kickstarter campaign we (Andrea Aste and Neil Kelso), have decided to take a huge leap forwards with our creative work, and to establish an official laboratory for sharing knowledge, tools, ideas and innovation.
The laboratory is called “Berith and Brimstone”. We are a completely independent company - taking charge of our own destiny and setting forth on a quest to serve the world with magical inventions.
We will be creating more resources to support Oracolarium, so stay tuned right here in this secret room for more videos, more spreads, and more tips for connecting between Oracolarium, Tarot and other worlds. In order to support our ongoing research and development, we have launched a Patreon page. Anyone able to support us through that platform will get exclusive behind the scenes insights into what we’re developing, as well as regular Tarot and Oracolarium readings, lessons, and tools.

Thank you everyone for supporting us. Without you, our journey simply wouldn’t be possible, and we are forever grateful. It honestly makes our day every time we see someone sharing a selfie with the book, or a picture of Oracolarium coming to life with the augmented reality. You’re all amazing!
We’re so excited to all be bringing Oracolarium to life - so please keep sharing the magic with your friends!
Most splendiferous wishes,
Andrea and Neil
Berith and Brimstone
