Last week I talked about some of my favorite Tarot Decks, and promised that I would get into some Oracle Decks this week.
So, What’s the Difference between a Tarot and an Oracle Deck?
The simplest answer is that tarot decks usually follow a pattern, major arcana, minor arcana (or pips), and court cards. There can be varying themes and the suits can be called different things, but mostly tarot follows a certain pattern – there are traditional meanings for cards, even though most readers interchange the traditional meaning with their own intuitive interpretations.
Oracle decks, on the other hand, can be anything. No pattern, no rules, no nothing. You can use anything you like as an oracle, anything that speaks to you. Some people use nature as an oracle, some even use books, opening to a random page and reading whatever passage pops up as the answer to their question.
So, here are some of the decks I use. Links are affiliate.
