Literature and Divination

We have updated the Haute Macabre Shop with new divination decks and a new Literature category, starting with our own Sonya Vatomsky’s transcendental collection of poetry, Salt is for Curing.

I wish for dreams but they don’t come;
I sink into earth but the salt surrounds me,
draws out my breath so the space between the seconds throbs dully.
That which lasts is spread thin, the gaps filled in with vinegar.

Flowers from the Dead is an oracle deck, exhibiting on each card an animal that represents a feeling, quality or personality trait. Designed with the intention of assisting in finding a person’s animal spirit guide, which qualities are missing from your life, and for divinationary purposes. Featuring 47 cards, both the original 27 card deck and the 20 card expansion pack.

Notes from the Pagan Otherworld is the accompanying guide book to the Pagan Otherworlds Tarot deck, which has been restocked. Authored by artists and designers, Linnea Gits and Peter Dunham this book walks you through the artist’s interpretation of each of the 84 cards in the Pagan Otherworlds Tarot.

The Supra Oracle deck is loosely based on Jungian psychology and how it mingled with Gnosticism. Melding physics, psyche and ancient knowledge in Jung’s practice that inspired an artistic leap at the dawn of the 20th Century in how Man relates to the world around him. It was a process of soul making in an era of growing preoccupation with the Machine and a return to our mystic roots that nourish and enliven our essential selves – our individual identities – within the immeasurable expanse of the cosmos. Deck and companion guide book, The Hidden Path of an Oracle,  are by uusi studio.


A reminder that today is the final day of the pre-sales for the winter season of our beloved Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab collection of perfumes and hair glosses. Sales will close at midnight, CST, tonight. Please visit the “Apothecary” section of the Haute Macabre shop to place your order, to be shipped by early December. This will be the final time until spring of 2019 to ensure purchase of our collection, so please do not hesitate.

Pre-orders will also be closing tonight at midnight on the Dressed New Orleans Mausoleum patches. Made by hand, they are a reminder that here in New Orleans, we bury our dead above ground, mingled in next to the living.
