Oracle Card Reading Info

What are Oracle cards? 

 

Oracle cards are a divination tool used to receive guidance about any of life’s questions. The reading is based on where your present energy is currently at. While I can see potential future possibilities the future is never set in stone due to our free will. Oracle card readings are beneficial in providing guidance or confirmation about anything in your life that you are curious about. 

 

Oracle decks differ from a traditional Tarot deck in that they do not have the set structure that a traditional Tarot deck follows. Most Tarot decks have 78 cards with 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 Minor Arcana cards. Oracle decks do not have a set number of cards, though most of them usually have 44 cards. Most Oracle decks have a set theme with a provided guidebook to help the reader with interpreting the cards based on the views of the author and illustrator. Since Oracle cards do not have the set structure and card meaning that a traditional Tarot deck has the reading is very reliant on the reader’s intuition. Oracle card readings are viewed as gentler than a traditional Tarot reading. 

 

What deck will you use?

 

I have a wide range of Oracle decks to choose from - angels, archangels, past lives, chakras, spirit animals, and life purpose. I follow my intuition about which deck wants to be used for your reading and question. 

 

How many cards are pulled for a reading? 

 

I follow my intuition and listen for guidance for how many cards to pull. Usually I provide three or seven card readings. A three card reading represents the past, present, and potential future energy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A seven card reading provides more information related to the present and future energy. The bottom three cards are related to where your energy is presently. The middle card can either represent something that is blocking you from moving into the future or it can represent a transition into the future. The top three cards are related to where your potential future energy is headed.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What are some examples of questions I can ask? 

 

It is important to keep questions open-ended as an Oracle card reading does not provide a yes or no answer. A reading is meant to provide you with guidance for your highest and greatest good; it is not meant to determine major life decisions for you. 

 

It is important to keep the questions self-focused and present and future oriented. We cannot change the events that happened in the past but we have the power to make smart and informed choices moving forward in order to create the life we desire. Also, we cannot control another person nor is it healthy to even try. The only person we have control over is ourselves, so it is important to keep the reading focused on yourself to help you receive guidance about your own life and what you can do to move forward. 

 

Example Questions: 

 

What do I most need to know for my highest and greatest good?

What do I need to focus on right now?

What message do my spirit guides/angels have for me?

What will help me feel more at peace?

What’s my biggest obstacle right now?

Why am I feeling stuck in my (relationship, friendship, career, etc)? 

What’s the lesson for me in this situation/relationship/career?

What is going to help me heal right now?

What will help get me through this period of grief? 

What baggage do I need to leave behind?

What does my subconscious want me to know?  

How can I attract the right relationship?

What is my calling? 

What gifts do I have to share with the world? 

How can I find the motivation to reach my goals?  

How can I open myself up more to receive abundance from the Universe?
