Best site ever for your needs is www.aeclectictarot.com
Answer by MelanieP
There are many great websites and stores with hundreds of options for you to choose from. Traditional tarot decks have 78 cards. There are many other types of decks available that do not have the traditional number of cards or the same categories of cards. These are usually called oracle cards. You can even make your own cards!
Here are my recommendations for choosing a deck:
See samples of the cards or the entire deck before you purchase. I recommend viewing a very popular website, called Aeclectic.net. It is a great website that lists hundreds of different decks, along with images of the cards and reviews.
I look at certain cards to get a feel for if the deck coincides with my personal way of viewing the world or not. I chose my current deck, Pearls of Wisdom, after seeing the Death card. It shows a beautiful life transition from a time that is completed energetically, to a new world of brilliant color and abundance. Most other decks show the Grim Reaper, dark colors, and skeletons. Those depictions do not show the beauty of new opportunities and new growth, which is what the Death card means to me. As you are choosing your deck, spend time examining the pictures and seeing if they feel congruent with how you view the world or how you want to view it. Choose a deck that feels good to your Spirit.
Choose a deck with meaningful, inspiring, and appealing images on each card. Some decks just show three wands on the three of wands card, for example. Other decks will show someone meditating or pondering and a ship for the three of wands. For intuitive reading, the latter style of deck is preferable. Before buying a deck, make sure you look at the numbered cards of the four suits (aka the Pip cards) to make sure they have meaningful images on them.
You can also choose or make a fun bag or box to keep your cards in. I like this because I feel like I’m opening a present every time. Other people prefer to keep their cards in the original box.

Can this actually happen with Tarot Cards ?
My friend had gotten tarot cards and used them to ask a question about her relationship with her boyfriend and how it would last.The last card was supposedly the outcome of their relationship which the card was Death. Later on he broke it off with her and she is wondering if that is the reason for him braking it off, or was that plain coincidence?
Answer by MJ Vashti
The thing with Tarot Cards is that they use the basic fundementals of life to brainwash people into thinking they work. Life…love…death..Scooby Doo…you know….life cycles that EVERYONE encounters.
Tarot Cards are bullshit and manmade, just like planes….people can predict of it will crash or not…because it’s manmade and because of gravity.
Answer by Lauz
coincidence, anything can be true. YOU make it
Answer by twiztid_thots
Is is probably coincidence. Tarot Cards are real! But only if the person reading your future is experienced. And it is linked to witch craft. God speaks through experiences, dreams, ect. The devil prays on those who want to see the future. It’s sinful to seek that information. We aren’t meant to know it for a reason.
Answer by Chi
ok i’m a tarrot card fanatic.
and it depends if the card is upright or reverse, but for the most part i’m going to guess upright which usually means the end of one thing, and the beginning of another. like breaking up, the relationship ended and something new will now begin.
The thing with Tarrot is, is first you need a deep connection with your cards, if you don’t bond with them or have a connection, or find anything interesting with them then reading them is pointless. And also to believe in your cards.
Also you can’t always take tarrot seriously, becaused the future is always changing. Along with Tarrot predicts stuff, and relationships usually don’t last forever, sometimes they do though too.
I tarrot a lot, and i’ll ask a question one week and get a result, i’ll wait a month and ask again, and most of the answers will be the same, but yet changed because some new things came up. Sometimes they come in your favor and other times they don’t. I wouldn’t recommend asking relationship questions like that, because when you get a bad result then it disappoints you and etc.
Another thing is if she told him about the reading. I don’t tell readings like that to anyone, i keep them a secret so only i know, and it don’t interfer with my relationship with anyone.
Plain coincidence that is a 50/50 shot. because tarrot i have excellent of predicting true stuff with it, but also its a relationship so yeah..it goes hand in hand.
i hope this all helped out some : )
What is the difference between Tarot Cards and Oracle Cards?
As in, are they used in the same way? For example, could I use the Celtic Cross spread with my Goddess Oracle set? Also, someone told me that you cannot read yourself with the Tarot, but you can with the Oracle set. Is this correct? Thanks for the advice, please no negative comments.
Answer by Geezah
Yes, they’re both used in essentially the same way: divination, personal evaluation, etc.
Tarot decks though are always decks made of 78 specific cards: 14 cards of 4 different suits each (the “minor arcana”), then 22 unique cards (the “major arcana”). You’ll see some slight variations to these. For example, some decks call the “stones” suit what others call the “pentacles” suit, the Thoth deck calls the Justice card “Adjustment”, etc. But essentially, all Tarot decks follow this 78 card Tarot format.
There are other divination decks though that don’t use this format, and thus aren’t “Tarot cards”. These include “Oracle Cards”, the “Sacred Geometry” deck, and hundreds of others. I suppose nothing is really stopping you from using a Celtic Cross spread with these, but you may want to read the included LWB (“little white book”) with the deck and see.
As for the notion that “you cannot read yourself with the Tarot”, that’s not really true. You can read yourself. The worst that can happen is that you might not get an accurate reading because it’s very easy to be biased with yourself, and rationalize away problems you might be having. It’s good to get an on-lookers perspective sometimes.
Answer by LabGrrl
There are ‘rules’ about what make up a tarot deck, whereas a company can call anything an ‘oracle deck.’
Introspection is a major use of tarot, not sure why your source says otherwise.
Answer by Jermaine
Check this link out it will definitely help you to understand the difference better., Tarot is symbolically predicted. While Oracle has a further divine inclination. Both are influential and play a great role in forecasting, foretelling and predicting possibles events and opportunities arising in one’s life Check this out.
Answer by thecityoftownsville_2000
Modern Oracle cards are designed only for divination and not for game playing.While the Tarot is commonly used for divination, it is actually a variant of playing cards. The Tarot was initially created in northern Italy for playing a type of trick taking card game. The so called “Major Arcana” was intended to be a trump suit. Although not well known in countries like the US, Tarot games are popular in European countries such as France. Cartomancy or divination with the standard 52 card deck is also practiced and was practiced before the Tarot was appropriated for this purpose. The Tarot and the standard deck of playing cards have more in common then most of us have been led to believe. Unlike the Tarot or the standard playing card deck, modern oracles are not divided into suits and do not feature court cards.
