How Oracle Cards Work & Why You Should Try Them

If you are thinking of trying out Oracle cards or if you already use them you may wonder how do they work and how are they giving you information? You may also wonder what the benefits of doing them are?

Oracle cards are amazing for giving you guidance, clarity, reassurance, and even a peek into the future. There are so many benefits of using them and working with them and your intuition to create an amazing life for yourself.

The Difference Between Tarot, Angel & Oracle Cards

There are a few differences between Angel, Oracle, and Tarot cards.

You may be drawn to working with a certain type more than the other. Use your intuition when choosing which one you will be working with.

No matter which one you choose, they are all accurate. None are better or worse. They are just different and depend on your preference.

  • Several Rules
  • Traditional system (been around for a long time)

  • Very similar to oracle cards
  • Easy to read
  • Different number of cards in each deck (usually less than tarot & oracle)

How Do Oracle Cards Work?

Oracle Cards Work as A Divination Tool

Oracle cards are a divination tool in order to seek knowledge of the possible future. I say ‘possible’ because anything can be changed by free will.

Oracle cards are amazing for tapping into possible future timelines in order to see where you are going. This is usually predicted by the current energy you are giving off as everything is created via the Law of Attraction.

They are also helpful for understanding the past and present energy that led you to where you are now.

When you work with your oracle cards, you are working with divine spiritual energy as a tool to guide you to move forward.

Any predictions can be changed by free will as I mentioned above. So, even just seeing a possible future timeline gives you the power to change it.

You have the power to change anything in your life. If you don’t like what you see, you have an opportunity to change it. 

Oracle Cards Via the Law of Attraction

Oracle card readings are also guided by the Law of Attraction. You really can’t get an incorrect reading because, via the law of attraction, it will show you where your energy is. It has to as it is the law.

So, there are no worries that you are doing it wrong as the law of attraction will ensure you are getting cards that match your current energy. Once again, this can be changed by your own free will.

For example, let’s say you do an oracle card reading and ask if you’ll be successful in your next business venture. The cards that come out are not very promising.

You might get upset and decide that maybe this isn’t for you. But you can use the information to change the outcome.

You can go further into the reading and ask, “what can I do to get the outcome I seek?” Then you might get a bunch of cards that show you that you need to work on your mindset first, or that you need to tweak your strategy and your business plan.

Oracle cards are amazing for showing you where your current vibration is (via the law of attraction) and what you can do to change it.

Nothing is set in stone. You can walk out of a reading and decide to make a big change which ultimately changes the outcome of your reading.

4 Reasons You Should Try Oracle Cards

1. Self-Awareness

One of the biggest benefits of oracle cards is that they offer self-awareness. They help to uncover aspects of yourself that you may not be consciously aware of. They bring things to the surface that will help you to understand what is going on in your life.

I’ve found self-awareness a very important thing. Because if you are trying to change something and nothing is working, you may not have the whole picture. You may not be aware of exactly what is going on and therefore can’t move forward.

But, if you can uncover those ‘hidden’ aspects and take a look at them, they will give you a whole new perspective and a path for moving forward.

2. Clarity

Oracle cards are great for providing you with clarity about situations in your life.

Let’s say you are trying to decide between two different jobs, and you are having a tug-of-war between your heart and your head. You can ask the cards to show you where each decision will lead if you choose either one. They will also show you what is really in your heart.

This will uncover a lot of clarity and reassure you that the decision you want to make is the right one. It is almost like a second opinion. Sometimes in life, you may want a second opinion to let you know that the choice you are making is a good one.

Oracle cards can provide clarity for the confusion that you are having about a decision in your head. They may also provide clarity about your current situation, the past, and even the present energy that you are heading towards.

3. Guidance

Oracle cards are great for giving you guidance. When you use oracle cards, you work with your higher self, your spirit guides, your Angels, and anyone else that you want to. It’s really up to you who you invite to help you but there are many options.

These beings can see the bigger picture and the paths available to you. So, they are great in providing you with guidance that you may not be able to see.

Once you begin to work with them more, you will develop a relationship and your trust in them will increase. You’ll see that they have your best interest at heart and that they want you to be happy. They are like your best friend and mentor here on your journey in life. So, they can provide you with the guidance you are seeking.

4. Reassurance

Oracle cards are great for providing you with reassurance with what you are currently doing or what you want to do.

If you are wondering if the path you are on is the right one but just want some extra reassurance, you can ask your oracle cards. They will provide you with the reassurance that you are indeed doing the right things, or they will help you to get to the right thing.

Maybe you are thinking of switching careers and you know deep down that it is the right thing to do but you are scared. You may be worried about money, what other people will say, or just that uncomfortable feeling of change.

You can ask your cards for reassurance if what you want to do is right. The cards will be there to reassure you and help you to feel more confident about your decision. Or they may provide some information about what you can expect to experience during the transition. This helps to ease the transition.

You can ask your oracle cards for reassurance about anything that you are second-guessing or not quite confident about in your life. They will help you to figure it out or reassure you that what you are doing is a good idea.  

Bottom Line: How Oracle Cards Work

As you can see oracle cards are amazing for giving you all sorts of information, guidance, and clarity. They help you to see where you are, why something may be happening in your life and where you are going.

Oracle cards give you your power back and allow you to look at your situation from a different perspective. This more empowering perspective can allow you to make changes for your future if you want.

You can’t do them wrong as they will always show you where your energy is. But it can take a bit of practice to learn how to interpret them so be sure to always check in with your intuition.

You are so powerful and have to ability to create any future you want. Oracle cards are an amazing tool to add to your life if you are looking to empower yourself and work with universal energy to create a life of abundance.
