I’ve just added a Forty Servants app to my sigil generator, you can find it under Cartomancy > Forty Servants.
The Forty Servants app lets you use a virtual version of the oracle deck The Forty Servants. Cards start in order then you get to shuffle while asking your questions (this actually reorders them on the back-end, like a physical deck), deal out cards (with or without reversed cards), and even shuffle remaining cards you haven’t dealt yet.
The Forty Servants is an oracle deck (available here) created by Tommie Kelly. If you want to go a bit deeper, there’s also a companion book called The Grimoire of the Forty Servants, which details an entire system of magick around them. I highly recommend them both. Shout outs to Tommie for being cool with me adding this!
Minutia of the Forty Servants App
I know your practice is highly personal and you might have a lot of specific questions as to whether the coding of this app conforms to that. I will attempt to answer them.
All the cards start out in order, so shuffle first unless you are just browsing the deck.
You can hit the shuffle button more than once, feel free to tap it as long as you’d like, it mixes them further up each time.
You can also shuffle the remaining cards at any time For example you start with 40, deal 5 out onto the table, you can then shuffle the 35 left in your hand if you choose.
Orientation (reversed cards)
Right when you hit the shuffle button it is decided which cards will be reversed.
You can choose whether you want to view them that way or ignore it via the checkbox (↑↓), but make no mistake, it is determined during the shuffle, not later when you click the checkbox.
Meaning of the cards
For those not familiar with The Forty Servants, you can click each card and you will be taken to Tommie’s page about that specific card.
Hitting restart puts the cards all back in order, so you probably wanna shuffle again after that.
