what are oracle cards?

Oracle cards are a type of divination tool used for insights and guidance. Unlike tarot, they have varied themes and interpretations. Users draw cards from decks, interpreting images and messages intuitively. Oracle cards offer subjective insights for personal growth, decision-making, and self-reflection, relying on the user’s intuition.

On the other hand, the oracle cards are more free and flexible, unlike the Tarot, which is limited by the structure of the system, and the creator can create different artworks according to the theme. The number of cards is also not limited by the 78 cards of the Tarot, you can customize them freely. Tarot cards are closer to everyday situations and life, while oracle cards have a more homogeneous and incoherent message, with many messages leaning towards spiritual and psychological aspects.

Oracle Cards FAQ

Oracle cards is a deck of cards that can display any image. It works very similarly to the Tarot, but has fewer rules for reading and allows for more freedom in your intuitive leadership.

Unlike Tarot card decks, the Oracle deck can have any number of cards. The number depends on its creator – this means that an oracle deck can have 10~100 cards, but the most common is 44~ 52 cards.

They are different in two main ways:
1. An international tarot deck has a fixed number of 78 cards, but oracle deck cards can be any number.
2. Tarot cards follow a fixed structure, but oracle decks have no rules and the possibilities are endless.

If you are just starting out with oracle cards, try oracle card meditation. Drawing a card every day is a great way to get to know your deck, while also honing your intuition and divination skills.
In addition, you can draw an oracle card to define the entire divination before using the tarot cards, or to enhance the reading after using the tarot deck.

If you just want to create a deck of oracle cards for yourself, you can refer to already established decks such as Tarot, Runes, Ogham, etc. to create a basic blueprint.
If you wish to create and sell your cards, this is a more complex process. Consult us for a complete and attentive guide!
