The Tarot can be an incredibly powerful tool, capable of providing clarity for questions big (where is my life going) and small (should I go out or watch Netflix tonight) It’s all encompassing, and that’s why it’s awesome. But sometimes, you want a specific reading about a certain aspect of your life. And in that case, you turn to an oracle card deck. What is an oracle card deck? While an oracle deck is similar to tarot, with characters, meanings, and archetypes, an oracle deck varies in the number of cards it contains, and may focus on one specific aspect of life, such as love, luck, or chance. Oracle decks can be incredibly intricate and artistic, and many tarot readers go back and forth with both, depending on what questions they’re being asked.
Think of the tarot deck like the grocery store—you go there for everything, right? An oracle deck is like a specialized store or cafe—you swing by when you’re craving one specific thing. Here, some oracle decks to experiment with, read from, and rely on!
