What is the difference between tarot and oracle cards?
Tarot cards generally have a fixed structure, such as standard Tarot deck consists of 78 cards, divided into two main sections: the Major Arcana (22 cards representing major life themes and archetypes) and the Minor Arcana (56 cards divided into four suits—Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles—each with ten numbered cards and four court cards). but some designers make minor modifications, but in general, they do not deviate from the structure of the Tarot system. They are mainly used for divination, personal growth, and even psychological exploration.
difference between the two sizes
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.

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.
