You want to learn to practice divination and you feel lost? You do not know where to start, what to expect or if you have the necessary qualities to interpret the message of the oracles? Make sure you have all the skills to achieve your goals: each practitioner has his own divinatory language and unique needs, you just have to identify your natural qualities to develop a practice that suits you while respecting your personal needs.

You do not need to know how to use all the decks of cards and oracles to be an effective practitioner, you just need to be aware of your preferences, your strengths and your weaknesses and to develop your natural talents by respecting your true nature.
Patience will allow you to become aware of the subtlety of your deep nature and the way in which it expresses itself; the more you take your time, the more you will be able to know what really suits you, what motivates you deeply and what nourishes your essential being.


If there are as many divinatory practices as there are practitioners, commercial proposals are still limited to the most used format and probably the most attractive for beginners: cards.
Format that gave birth to an incredible amount of tarot and other oracles, the analysis of the cards based on relatively similar rules from one oracle to another.
However, no one seems to want to reveal the "underside of the cards", explaining to new generations why and how to identify which interpretation techniques are best suited to their style and personal needs.

The basic oracular archetypes illustrate the basic approaches from which a novice can choose to practice divination. Whether divination by cards, oracles, beads, charms etc. each area is based on similar principles that are found widely held today.
Each archetype responds to rules that should allow beginners to define their own style of drawing and interpretation. So if you are a novice, I invite you to choose the archetype that suits you the most to start your learning, before moving on to another when the time comes.

  • The Writer Oracle. As its name indicates, the oracle writer works with the words and more particularly the texts provided in the booklets generally accompanying the oracles or present in the very illustrations of the cards. For beginners, this archetype is particularly suitable, because it allows you to focus very precisely on the analysis provided by the author, thus limiting doubts concerning a more personal interpretation that is still poorly mastered.
  • The artist oracle. Individuals falling under this archetype are strongly attracted by the illustrations present on their oracles, they know how to analyze symbols, colors and compositions, bringing out the personal meaning that the cards inspire in them. This intuitive archetype is particularly suitable for those who have a natural attraction for non-verbal communication.
  • The learned oracle. Most beginners in divination start without having first experiences in the matter, esoteric or spiritual knowledge. The scholarly oracle relies on his passions to develop his practice, focusing on his chosen areas to express his potential: if the practitioner is passionate about nature, he can turn to an oracle using flowers or plants as a tool interpretation etc.
  • The medium oracle. Intuition is one of the fundamental tools on which divination is based, the oracle medium is one of those sensitive beings who are able to channel the underlying message of their oracle, they will push the analyzes further. This archetype must learn to trust themselves and develop an attentive listening to their feelings.

    The archetypes presented here are defined in a way to make it easier for you to identify the one that suits you the most; these models can obviously grow over time: you can very well be an oracle writer and scholar, oracle medium and artist, it all depends on how you approach your learning and your needs at the time!
    These models are offered to you to help you understand how you work and how to start your divinatory learning with ease. If you have no experience, start by choosing the archetype that speaks to you the most, do some tests and you will see that over time you will be able to associate several of them in your practice.


    If you don't know what type of oracle you are right now, you can start by choosing a game that speaks to you, whether for its design, its format or the energy it gives off, this will already tell you how which you naturally connect to the world around you. If you are seduced by the design, maybe you are oracle artist, if you are interested in the theme maybe you are oracle writer or oracle scholar, if you are attracted by the feeling that it inspires in you maybe be are you oracle medium. Take note of this information, it will help you to specify your archetype.

    Now let's look at this first game: start by manipulating it in your hands, fanning out the cards or tossing the runes in their satchel; observe the symbols and illustrations offered to you, leaf through the booklet and try to familiarize yourself with the basic rules provided in your oracle. At first you may feel an attraction to images without yet understanding how to articulate the meaning of the cards and symbols with the proposed texts or with a particular message. Now observe how you feel about the texts and images offered.

    • If you are an oracle writer , you will undoubtedly be attracted by words, formulas or sentences that will jump out at you, sometimes you will simply feel more comfortable with texts without it causing you much reaction; appreciate this feeling of confidence, tranquility or peace at its true value, perhaps you just need to know that you can read quietly and take your time to do your analyzes to feel confident.

    • If you're an oracle artist , then it may be the card colors or particular artwork that grab your attention first. A color inspires you a certain feeling? Does an image remind you of a memory from your childhood? A composition evokes in you a feeling of deja vu? You are certainly sensitive to the illustrations that are offered to you, pay attention to these subtle inspirations, they are the ones that will have the most weight in your analyses!

    • If you are a learned oracle , you may be attracted to symbols or illustrations that echo your favorite disciple, whether you are passionate about history, geology, sewing, astrology or numerology, you can rely on the feelings and knowledge you have developed to give a more personal meaning to your analyses.

    • If you are a psychic oracle , it is likely that the meaning of the cards will be immediately apparent to you, whether through a flash inspired by an illustration, a sentence construct, or a personal experience that comes to you without warning. . Pay attention to these inspirations and compare your impressions with what the analysis booklet offers, this will give you a broader perspective during your interpretations.

    By identifying what jumps out at you when working with your oracles, you can gain insight into how your gift naturally manifests within you. Take note of your impressions and your feelings, it is common for one or more of these qualities to be present in you, if you cannot decide which one speaks to you the most or seems to be the most suited to your needs, start by working with the one that seems easiest to you, then you can develop your other talents. It is also just as natural to have only one talent, which you will be able to refine with great precision, as to have several which will over time integrate with each other to form your own. divinatory language.


    You have just defined your oracular identity, if you are just starting divination, focus on developing the basic qualities of this archetype before continuing your learning. The more you practice, the more accurately you will be able to articulate your analyses; you'll know it's time to move on when you feel bored or are naturally drawn to another method of analysis.

    These archetypes are obviously a basis for work , if you have an already fine intuition, then cards and oracles will serve as a basic medium for you to express your natural talent, so you may be attracted to other media such as sheets of tea, beads, charms or any other method of divination that calls upon your personal talents. To start practicing divination based on your oracular identity, I invite you to create a draw tracking journal. It is essential to be able to follow your evolution to identify where you need to be guided and, above all, to have a detailed follow-up of your analyzes to know how they translate into your life!

    • The first step is to create a divinatory journal in which you will be able to fill in the details of your draws, starting with the date, the game used, the question, the placement of the cards and your analysis. Your diary can be made in writing, orally with a dictaphone or through photographs. Use your imagination to create something that looks like you and makes you want to practice and have fun, it will make your sessions more joyful or more serious depending on your needs.

    • The second step is to practice regularly , every day if you can, every week should be a minimum. A card a day can be a good start to familiarize yourself with your oracle, otherwise you can choose to do a draw for the week to see what's coming your way and follow up regularly. For what ? Depending on your learning objective, you will need to develop your capacity for analysis, reflection and synthesis, this requires some mental gymnastics, like any sporting activity, you have to be rigorous if you want to see results.

    • The third step is to take stock regularly: when a draw causes you problems, I invite you to note your feelings and what seems to be the cause of your blockage. If you cannot find the cause of this difficulty, I invite you to contact me using a contact form or to ask for help in analyzing your draw . You may sometimes find yourself faced with a frustrating analysis that seems to lead you nowhere, in this kind of case it is important to rephrase your question or move on! Remember to note regularly what seems to cause you difficulties and anxieties then come back to me for technical advice or more personal guidance .
