Finding an oracle deck can seem like a daunting process, especially when there are so many to choose from. I personally really enjoy being able to go into a store and flip through each card in the deck and see how I connect with it. However, if you don't have access to a store, or don't have the ability to there are also ways to see if a deck will fit your energy online. 

This is a running list of beautiful oracle decks that I have found in my own personal research as a place to get started finding the right one for you. When choosing a deck one of the most important things to pay attention to is your intuition. Are you drawn to this deck? Hold it in your hands and see how you feel. What does the imagery invoke for you? Do you see yourself reflected in this deck? How can this help you heal? These are all good questions to ask when you're trying to decide which deck to get. 


Deck Reviews

Goddess Guidance

This is a very beautiful deck. It features goddesses from cultures around the world which I really like. Very great for connecting with divine feminine energy. 


Wisdom of Avalon

This was my very first deck and still one of my favorite. I really love all of the nature imagery and animals featured in this deck. It's got a good balance of masculine and feminine energy and the descriptions make it easy to interpret. 


Past Life

This is deck is very intense and almost addictive. The first time I received a reading with it I went out and bought it the next day.  I have to clear my place and myself before I even touch it. Be warned: this will bring up the energies of the past, good or bad. This deck has allowed me to give incredible past life readings, and give others clarity on past life trauma and karma. If you're thinking about getting this deck remember to clear it often and listen to how you feel when using it. 


Medicine Cards

I used to pull these cards from my mothers deck as a child and I just recently got my own deck. I really love incorporating these into my readings and I find that they allow for great critical introspection. 



I have not purchased these decks but I have been following them on social media and I hope to try them out soon!
