NEW: Tarot & Oracle Cards

We're excited to announce that we now carry a wide range of Tarot and Oracle Cards.

What are Tarot Cards?

Tarot cards are being used in a form of cartomancy whereby practitioners use tarot cards purportedly to gain insight into the past, present or future. They formulate a question, then draw cards to interpret them for this end. A regular tarot deck consists of 78 cards, which can be split into two groups, the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana. French-suited playing cards can also be used; as can any card system with suits assigned to identifiable elements (e.g., air, earth, fire, water).

What are Oracle Cards?

Oracle decks are a tool of self-reflection to add to your magical and spiritual practice, or just to use for fun. And while oracle cards can offer insight similar to tarot cards, there are some major differences. Most tarot decks are based on the Rider-Waite deck, the OG of tarot cards. They likely have 78 cards, each of which provides detailed insight into a specific situation. Regardless of an artist's interpretation of a card, such as the High Priestess, the card's meaning generally stays the same from tarot deck to tarot deck (to further dive into tarot, check out Allure's guide to reading tarot cards). Though there's room to play around while reading tarot, there are also structured spreads and ways to read tarot that have power in tradition.

What is the Difference Between Tarot Cards and Oracle Cards?

Tarot cards tend to have a “traditional structure” to the deck and common meanings. Most tarot decks are based on the original Rider-Waite deck. As a result, most tarot decks share common themes and messages. Depending on the art or theme of the deck however; the images and the pictures may vary, but often the messaging behind that card is very similar (keep in mind that messages from tarot are partially based on interpretation). On the other hand, Oracle decks often do not have one common theme that are not based on one specific deck.

Oracle cards are really “free-flowing”. Oracle cards tend to be very broad and can be interpreted in many ways and can contain many different types of content. With Tarot cards, there are usually 78 cards within a deck. There are some decks with more or less of the amount of cards but it is typically 78 cards total. In contrast, oracle cards have no set number of cards in a deck. An oracle deck can be as little as 10 cards or quite large with over 100 cards.
