Now, at this point, you have decided whether you want a tarot or an oracle card
deck. I am so excited for you! And if you haven't click here to check out my blog from last week about how to choose the perfect deck!
They have been an integral part of my spiritual journey, as they are for many people.
But, when you first embark on the journey of card reading, you can get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of choices out there. There are a lot of different styles, different creators, and different places that you can find these cards all over the internet and in person.
Today, I would like to provide a simple guide that will help you narrow down these options and decide which specific deck suits your unique needs. Because, I promise you, there is definitely one out there for you.
One way to decide which deck is a good fit for you is to find one that fits your
aesthetic. There are a lot of decks that revolve around a specific theme, and the
pictures on the card portray images that fit that theme.
For example, I have the Mermaid Tarot Deck. Every card, major and minor arcana alike, all have art on them that represent a mermaid in some way.
This is a great option if you are like me and you love mermaids. I also have The Goddess Power Oracle Deck. Every card in this oracle deck portrays Goddesses from every cultural and religious background.
This can be applied to pretty much any theme you can imagine: from beautiful crystals, all the way to alluring vampires.
The really neat thing about looking for cards based on theme is that you can also
find cards for any movie, television show, or book that you may like. If you are a
fan of Game of Thrones, there is a Game of Thrones themed tarot deck you can
These are just a couple of the many options of pop culture decks you can get, so if you are a pop culture queen/king, I encourage you to search for decks relating to different books, movies, or television shows you enjoy.
So maybe you aren’t really interested in a specific “look.” Maybe you want a deck
that fulfills a specific purpose in your life. While this concept applies more so to
oracle cards, I will explain how it applies to tarot cards in the next paragraph.
There are plenty of oracle cards out there that fit a specific purpose.
For example, the Power of Love Oracle Deck is great if you’re looking to gain more confidence and understanding in your romantic relationships. These cards have a word written on them, and are followed by an affirmation that can be read aloud to help activate that idea and feeling in your life.
Maybe you don’t care so much about your romantic life. Maybe you want to find out what darker personality traits are deep inside of you, and bring them to light so you can heal them. The Dark Mirror Oracle Deck is one that I personally love for this type of work, and it has really helped me come to terms with parts of me that aren’t so pretty and full of light.
There are oracle cards for abundance, past life work, and any other part of your life that you need help with.
While tarot cards might not explicitly say that they are designed for a specific
purpose, you can figure out what purpose they serve based on their imagery.
For example, I have a deck called the Tarot of Sexual Magic. This deck, while you can use it for any purpose, I only use this deck for sex life readings. To me, that is the purpose that this deck serves.
Or maybe you have a deck that is themed around money. In which case, this deck can be used to provide guidance on financial situations. Whatever the case may be, your intuition will tell you what purpose your decks will serve for you.
This brings me to my last topic, which is following your intuition to find the right
tarot and oracle card deck for you. This is a very simple, yet powerful approach.
While you’re looking in metaphysical shops or looking around online, look at the
different tarot/oracle decks and see which ones you are drawn towards.
Do your eyes keep gravitating towards a specific deck? Do you feel an inexplicable connection to a specific deck for seemingly no reason? Do you get a warm, comforting feeling in your stomach when you look at one? Whatever the case is, know that your intuition will always lead you in the right direction, and it is very important to trust it.
Lastly, you may ask, “but where can I find these cards?” There are two main
places you can find them: online and in stores. If you would like a more personal touch with your purchase, walking into our store would be the best option.
