Symbolon

[Separation] [Strategist] A symbolon is an "object broken into two parts which...want to be reunited into a single entity." The Symbolon deck is a set of 78 images designed to help you remember forgotten aspects of yourself that are influencing your life from within. Each card shows a figure or scene that reflects one of these inner personae, their actions or motives. The card to the right shows the Strategist, an intellectual who is living life from his head. The cards have no titles or numbers, but are identified in the instruction booklet. Each one is associated with a certain astrological constellation as given by the symbols in the corners, but it is not necessary to know astrology to use the deck. Many of the scenes on the cards are taken from familiar myths and fairy tales. In the text, the authors Peter Orban, Ingrid Zinnel and Thea Weller give a theme summary for each card and describe how to interpret it in three different contexts: as the problem, the way through the problem and the outcome.
