What is an oracle?
Oracle cards are also known as divination cards.

They are generally built around a specific theme, and may contain a reference booklet.
A set of oracle cards allows to :

An oracle deck is therefore a channeling tool.

Which oracle cards to choose?
There are plenty of oracle card decks, all with different characteristics.
It is best to listen to yourself to choose the deck, with appealing images.
How to draw the cards?
The oracle cards are laid out face down.
They are usually drawn at random.
Our eye is somehow attracted to one card or another. This is called intuition.
It is also possible to use radiesthesia to draw the cards.
Some people pick one card, others pick several.
The main thing is not to think too much.
Once the card or cards have been drawn, it is time to move on to the interpretation.
It is possible to use :
