The MicroCosmic Oracle release party! Belltown Art Walk w Healers, Readers, Crystals, & More!
The time has come! After six years of painting, studying, and writing, Julia Y's MicroCosmic Oracle is finally complete. Come celebrate with the artist at The Crystal Lounge as part of Belltown Art Walk.
The MicroCosmic Oracle is a 60 card divination deck written, designed, and illustrated by Julia Y, a mixed-media illustrator living in Seattle. The cards and accompanying 200 page guidebook immerse you in the symbolism and folklore of astrology, animals, and herbalism. It's a love letter to nature, a path of self-discovery, and a learning tool for astrology all in one box.
Twenty of the 3-D mixed media paintings from the MicroCosmic Oracle are on display, and you can purchase your own first edition copy of the deck and get it signed by the artist.
Special promotion during this event: if you purchase one of the original paintings from the MicroCosmic Oracle, you will receive a FREE copy of the oracle deck.
Learn about and engage with the Crystal Lounge's wide selection of crystals and minerals. Gain insight from our featured healers and readers. Have a cup of tea, a snack, or a locally crafted beer while you enjoy your experience at Seattle's Crystal Lounge.
We hope you'll join us to explore whole new worlds, and perhaps even go home with a new piece of art - whether created by an artist's hand or by the Earth.

Julia Y (she/they) is a Seattle illustrator who creates art using a unique process combining collaged fabric, acrylic paint, embroidery floss, and nails. This solo exhibition at The Crystal Lounge will feature 20+ of their paintings from the soon to be released MicroCosmic Oracle Deck. Each painting is inspired by astrology, geometry, folklore, herbalism, zoology, and science.
