When I tell people I read and create Tarot and Oracle decks for a living, some of questions I get asked are,
“Do you actually believe in all that ‘woo woo’?”
“What are Tarot/Oracle decks?”
“Do they actually work?”
Now, the answers to these questions depend on how one personally connects with different decks. That’s because Tarot and Oracle decks are a tool for self-discovery and seeking inner wisdom.
What are Tarot Decks?
The Tarot is a deck of 78 cards used for spiritual guidance. The 22 Major Arcana cards represent life’s major lessons, and the 56 Minor Arcana cards reflect the day-to-day trials experiences. Within the Minor Arcana cards, there are 16 Tarot Court Cards representing 16 different personalities and characters we may choose to express or view. The Minor Arcana also includes 40 numbered cards organised into 4 Suits, with 10 cards each, representing various situations that we encounter in the every day.
What are Oracle Decks?
The Oracle system doesn’t have a set number nor does it follow any specific rules. Each deck has a unique theme or purpose used for spiritual guidance similarly to the tarot. Oracle cards are useful for anyone looking for guidance and seeking meaning. Oracle cards provide powerful messages to encourage positive thinking.
What Can These Decks Do?
Tarot and Oracle decks can both tell a story of our journey in life and is a key to our inner wisdom. Every challenge and lesson we face can be found in these systems . And when we consult them, we’ll get shown what we need to overcome to live an inspired life.
While many people believe these systems tell you the future and make predictions, that’s not what these decks are about.
When it comes to Oracle and Tarot decks, you are using your intuition to create your ideal future and manifest your dreams.
What’s special about these decks is that you might be completely unaware of the message until you see it reflected in these cards, in which case you are now empowered to take action in your life.
How Can I Use Them?
They are perfect for self-development, seeking life-affirming answers, help in manifesting your goals, coaching, meditating and so much more!
And here’s the thing – you may already consciously know the message or insight you receive in a Tarot reading, in which case, the reading can be a heartening confirmation of what you already know. Or, you might be completely unaware of the message until you see it reflected in the cards, in which case you are now empowered to take action based on your new awareness.
So Do I Believe In All This Woo Woo?
Well, I don’t think it’s very woo woo because to me that’s your standard Fortune teller with the neon signs, velvet, head wraps, crystal balls and wind chimes. Now there is nothing wrong with that but to me, Tarot and Oracle decks are tools to be used intuitively to guide and counsel myself or others. So tell me, what do you believe?
Just imagine what might be possible in your life and journey and have access to with these decks. It’s intuitive wisdom and guidance available at your fingertips!
