How To Read Your Oracle Cards Like A Pro
Consulting an oracle deck is one of the best ways to do an intuitive reading. Here's how to do an accurate oracle reading on yourself or someone else.
First of all, what's the difference between oracle and tarot decks?
Similar to a tarot deck, an oracle deck is a collection of cards that provide guidance and perspective on our lived experience. But while tarot decks tend to follow a specific structure—78 cards split between major or minor arcana—oracle decks can be more loose and interpretive.
There are fewer rules when reading from an oracle deck, and more freedom to let your intuition lead the way.
How to choose an oracle deck.
There are hundreds of oracle decks now available, each with its own theme and focus. When purchasing a deck, use your intuition to choose the one you feel particularly drawn to.
Collecting decks over time also pays off, as you'll find that different decks will call to you depending upon your current mood and circumstances or those of the person you are reading for.
I personally have about 30 decks, and I find that the deck I'm guided to use with each client tells me something about the client's personality or what they're struggling with.
How to do a reading:
Come to the cards with a blank, open mind. When reading for yourself, make sure you're alone in a quiet place where you can tune in to your own energy.
