Oracle cards can be used for guidance in your life, for problem solving, and for developing your intuition. Oracle cards are used in divination. Divination is a method of obtaining information about the future, past, or present. There are many different methods of divination, and each can be used to obtain different types of insight. Oracle cards are very popular in the world of divination.  Oracle cards are believed to have been used since ancient Egyptian times and spread to the rest of the world through the Roman Empire. The earliest known reference to oracle cards is in Egypt where they were used for divination by priests. Oracle cards are used to answer questions on a variety of topics, including love and relationships, career choices, money and finance, health and healing, and many others. Oracle cards can be used to gain insight into the past or present with regards to specific questions or situations.

The Difference

Oracle decks utilize readings based on the questions asked and the signs assigned to each card, while tarot readings rely more on intuition and interpretation.  Tarot readings can be used for guidance in all areas of life, from finding out about a particular person’s past to foreseeing potential problems in the future. Oracle readings are more commonly used for getting answers to specific questions about one’s future, relationships, career choices, etc.

Because the decks of oracles are made to improve your mind, many card readers simply shuffle the deck and pick as many cards as possible that feel right. This draws on your intuition, the sixth knowing feeling.

The way that shuffling is done can differ when using oracle decks. Tarot decks are generally shuffled in the same way as playing cards. This method is very effective for oracle decks too. Many readers just sweep the deck across the table and create an unorganised mess. They then channel or “sense” the cards they should choose.

The idea is that the appropriate cards needed to solve the problem will always be chosen because the reader is guided by energy. Consider it as gentle gently pushing.

Since oracle decks are designed to improve your brain, many card readers simply shuffle the deck and pick the number of cards that feel appropriate. Once again it taps into your the sixth knowing feeling.

Shuffling itself can be different for oracle decks. The majority of tarot decks are shuffled in the same way as traditional playing cards. This method works extremely well with oracle decks too. But, many readers are content to sweep their deck around. They then focus or meditate, or sense the cards they want to choose from.

The concept here is that the right cards to solve the problem will always be chosen because the reader is guided towards them in a positive way. Think of it as a gentle divine prompting.

Tarot cards are believed to be a divination deck with striking images of crumbling buildings and scythe-wielding skulls. The oracle cards are easy to read because the majority of their interpretations are written on the card.

Tarot decks are an old-fashioned collection of 78 cards that belong to the category of minor or major arcana. The decks are divided up into four categories (wands cups, wands pentacles, and cups). Tarot cards can be studied, and read by experienced readers, mostly to help you understand an individual situation, to confirm the things you know intuitively or simply seek out spiritual guidance.

Oracle decks are more ad hoc from the structure of Tarot. A deck of oracles can be whatever the designer of the deck would like to make it; they choose the number of cards in it, the kinds of images they’ll employ as well as the function it’s intended to serve. There are numerous kinds of decks made from oracles that are available in a variety of shapes dimensions, sizes, and purposes. The most basic arrangement is that they include pictures and text, with a manual that provides ways the reader is expected to interpret the cards. There’s a lot more potential for imagination and creativity with these decks, making them the ideal deck for anyone who wants to dip their feet into the realm of intuitive reading cards.


Tarot and oracle decks are both popular divination tools that have their own unique uses. Tarot cards are typically used to read the future, while oracle decks are used for guidance in the present. Both decks can be used for meditation and self-reflection, and they can help you to connect with your intuition.
