Archetypes and symbols can be ways to question and understand ourselves and the world around us. Stories often use a lot of archetypes and symbols to help us understand, navigate, and communicate our reality.

The Story Card deck includes some of those archetypes and symbols, and is structured similarly to the minor arcana of a tarot deck. But while the structure is similar, the actual cards are less so. Each suit in the Story Card deck represents a motivation for a story's protagonist, and each card is a plot element to keep the story going. Still, if you look at your life as a storyteller, you might be able to use these cards in your existing divination practices.
