Tarot and other card Readings

 

 

Out of the many different types of cards, the Tarot is the most widely recognised. A Tarot deck is unique in that it has 78 cards and there are no strict rules or patterns for reading. Although there are many different Tarot decks available today, what they have in common is :- Major Arcana and Minor Arcana cards and that they all have 78 cards. Many have different mythology or stories with the cards. 

Confused? That's ok, most are and that's why people enrol in classes - to learn. In classes we use the deck pictured above, the Rider Waite Tarot deck. 

Tarot is not explicable in a few sentences. Many books written about Tarot cards, but still its not the same as the experience of having a Reading or on a learning journey. 

 

 There are many other types of cards that are nothing like Tarot and belong in completely different categories. Many of these cards have fairly strict systems of reading. These are often referred to as Fortune Telling Cards, or Gypsy cards.  Lenormand, Kipper cards or Playing Cards are such cards. Paris Debono cards -designed by him.. are unique cards that resemble no other. We have a few of his decks in store. . [Plus many others] They can vary from 25 cards to 40. 

Unlike Europe, or America, Lenormand cards are not very well-known here in Australia, although interest is growing in these unusual and beautiful card decks. Small, about the size of playing cards, different and they can be uncannily accurate.  

Most Readings at Oracle Wisdom are with Tarot or Symbolon cards. Symbolon cards are psychology cards, very useful in relationship readings - NOT TAROT. I have found them very helpful in my work with clients.
