Why You SHOULD Mix Tarot & Oracle Cards

Hello, Dear Mystics!

Have you ever wondered if you can mix your mystical medicines? Like, can you use Tarot cards with oracle cards at the same time? The answer is Yes, yes you can! One of the main benefits of using both oracle and tarot cards is their broad range of guidance and advice. While tarot cards may provide a more detailed understanding of the situation, oracle cards can provide advice on navigating the issues at hand, making for a well-rounded and comprehensive reading.

First, let's briefly discuss what oracle and tarot cards are. Oracle cards are a form of divination that use symbolism and imagery to provide guidance and insight. They often have a specific theme or focus, such as angels, fairies, or animals. On the other hand, Tarot cards are a more complex divination system that typically consists of 78 cards divided into major and minor arcana. Each card has its own meaning and interpretation, often used for more in-depth readings.

Individually, oracle and tarot cards hold immense value in offering insight and advice for personal growth. Oracle cards typically offer more direct and straightforward messages, while tarot cards delve deeper into the subconscious and explore the underlying factors and influences in a given situation. But when used together, these two types of cards can create a dynamic and holistic reading that covers all bases.

So why combine these two powerful tools in a reading? Well, there are several benefits to doing so:

  1. Increased clarity: Oracle cards are known for their straightforward messages and easy-to-understand interpretations. Combined with the more complex symbolism of tarot cards, they can help provide a clearer, more concise message that is easier to interpret.

  2. Access to different energies: Each type of card has its own unique energy and focus. By combining oracle and tarot cards, you can tap into different energies and perspectives that can provide a more well-rounded reading.

  3. More specific guidance: Oracle cards often provide very specific guidance on certain areas of your life, such as relationships or careers. Combined with tarot cards, which can provide a more general overview, you can get a complete picture of your situation and the guidance you need.

  4. Increased creativity: Combining oracle and tarot cards can also tap into your creativity and intuition, allowing you to see new possibilities and perspectives you may not have considered before.

Combining oracle and tarot cards in a reading can provide a powerful tool for personal growth and guidance. It allows you to access different energies and perspectives and provides a more straightforward, concise message. So if you're looking for guidance in your life, consider trying it! You never know what insights and inspiration you may discover.
