Tarot VS Oracle Cards

Tarot VS Oracle Cards

Tarot and Oracle are both different yet similar types of divination that have been around for centuries. In recent years, many of us are no longer strangers to these forms of divination thanks to TikTok.

What are Tarot cards?

Tarot decks usually come in a fixed set of 78 cards. They are usually divided into 2 sections - Major Arcana and Minor Arcana. Major Arcana cards are usually about bigger life themes and lessons. Whereas Minor Arcana is more for every day life experiences and challenges.

Every card has a different meaning and symbolism and is read differently by different tarot readers. Reading tarot requires intuition and understanding the meanings of the cards. "You have to be very grounded which can be achieved through meditation and focusing on the cards is important" Bambi says. She also recommends using our products to increase intuition. These include our Third Eye Pendant, Blast Open Your Third Eye Oil, Charged Purple Candles and our Boost Your Intuition Spell Kit.

What are Oracle cards?

Oracle cards are not confined to the same few cards like Tarot is. They have their own layouts and the cards (and amount of cards in a deck) vary per deck. Very often, Oracle cards follow the theme of their cards. 

Just like Tarot, each Oracle card has a different meaning and the symbolism varies solely on the reader. Sometimes, Oracle decks come with a guide book for readers to refer to for interpretation. 

Tarot and Oracle can work hand in hand in a reading to bring out deeper meanings. If you'd like to go for a Tarot reading with Bambi, you can always book a session on our website here: https://thelovewitch.sg/collections/frontpage.
