Intro to Oracle Cards

I am sure everybody has heard about Tarot decks, Oracles and Angel cards. Most people are more familiar with the Tarot which has been around for many centuries.

Doreen (my wife) and I are going to explain the difference between Tarot and Oracles for you and also we will be highlighting an oracle called The Goddess Oracle in a weekly column. We are very excited to write about this oracle. It is all feminine based with a focus on female empowerment – using Goddesses from many different cultures. Each week we will pull a card and post a picture of it, give our interpretation of the card and go into the mythology of the Goddess. We also welcome each and every one of you to post your interpretation of that card and what it means to you. Make it your own with your heart. Individuality is the road to self. Find the Goddess in you!

Oracles and Angel cards are a spin-off from the Tarot, they are part of the New Age movement. Oracle cards can have any different number of cards compared to the traditional Tarot which has 78. They do not have a Major or Minor Arcana. There are many different decks out there and each one has their own mythology and philosophy. They are mostly used to seek higher knowledge and affirmation. They do not predict the future. They are designed to help us to see ourselves, situations, or the world around us differently – usually with empowerment, wisdom and strength.

Angel cards are very similar but they are designed with the Angels and Archangels in mind – having words of wisdom or affirmation from that specific Angel. After studying many Oracles and Angel cards I have found that they can really help us to understand our inner selves and give us words of wisdom in life. What I found unique about Oracles and Angel cards is that when a card is pulled it would help to remind us of what we need to work on for ourselves in that moment with strength, love and empowerment to proceed and make positive choices that are best for our higher selves.

    Randall and Doreen,
    Firstly, I always knew those were pictures of your love birds. 🙂 I have finally started exploring the blog section, and perhaps we can discuss some plant and reshi (sp?)topics further. I just read an interesting article on a sybiotic relationship with roots and bacteria… Anyway, to the point, I loved your cards article, for some time now have been considering “birthing” a deck or two of my own. Great information thanks for sharing!

    I am also looking forward to these postings. I bought an angel deck last year and have yet to open it. I am very excited to learn about these angel cards, to get insight, and learn how to give myself readings with them.

    We are so glad to here that you will be looking forward to learning and growing with the Goddesses. The deck we will be featuring in our weekly posts is called:
    The Goddess Oracle by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and illustrated by Hrana Janto.
    Watch for the first one coming soon!
    I look forward to our discussions.
    Shine Bright from your heart!

    Hi Randall and Doreen-
    This is really cool. I can see why some of our readers enjoy these.
    Randall, with all of your experience and creative energy, including the blessings you have received, along with the tremendous support of your wife (who I can see has psychic abilities herself), I think the two of you have the abilities to make your own, very unique tarot deck. Have you considered it?
    Hope you both are doing well.
    Thank you.
    Miss Krystal

    Hi Randall and Doreen,
    This is great to hear! I love this deck as I have a deck of my own and I cant wait to see what insights you have on this deck. It’s a wonderful deck that’s for sure. Throughout the years of using this deck I have found that these cards are always right when you are asking about a general reading on the situation. Plus when reading on these cards I find the goddesses are clear cut and to the point with the messages.
    I’ll keep my eye out on your blog as I am sure it will be a hit!
    Have a wonderful week!
