Understanding Tarot and Oracle Cards
By: Amy C. Keiper also known as the writer L.C. Harrison
Defining the difference between Tarot and Oracle Cards lies in the approach of the two different types of guiding inspirational tools. Tarot is built around a story with symbols that involve numerology, and are rooted in meaning developed over time by many contributions. Oracle cards are image and concept based, involving symbolic imagery created by an individual artist or writer, often two people working together. Artists usually contribute their own meanings to the art and imagery that they create for oracles.
