My Favorite Oracle Decks

A list of my favorite oracle decks #witchythings #oracledecks #sacredselfcare #dwellinmagic

Oracle decks are one of my favorite tools to use to connect with the Divine/Source/the Universe/my spirit guides (they’re really all one and same to me). I pull oracle cards every time I do a moon ritual, during my morning self-care routine, and anytime I’m needing guidance.

Oracle cards are a divination tool, meaning they are used for spiritual guidance and as a way to shed light on situations or circumstances that a person might not be seeing or considering. They differ from tarot cards in that they are not as structured or specific. I like the broader room for interpretation of oracle cards, but one is not better than the other; it really just comes down to preference.

In this article:

  • My favorite oracle decks
  • How I pull oracle cards
  • A question I have for you

Let’s get started with my favorite oracle decks.

Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards

This is my absolute favorite deck to work with. This deck comes with 44 cards and “each card gives you a specific message about how you can improve your life, health, relationships, finances, career, and spiritual path”.

And that’s what I love about this deck–that every card can be applied to whatever you’re asking about, so if it’s about your career or a relationship, the cards can answer to either of those.

The spreads I pull are always so spot on and there are also additional meanings for each card so you can better extract any message you’re meant to receive. I have also done several spreads with these cards for my husband and they’ve been so accurate for him as well, so while it’s called Goddess Guidance, it’s definitely not a deck that’s only for women.


Wisdom of the Oracle Divination Cards

Wisdom of the Oracle Divination Cards

This is quickly becoming my favorite deck to use as well. What I like about this deck is that it incorporates some aspects found in tarot cards, like being able to pull upside cards which come with a message of protection (nothing negative though, which I like) and I also like that you can specifically ask about relationships or career/money. It has 52 cards with over 250 independent meanings.

Each card has an essential meaning and a message, and then if you were asking about a relationship or abundance, you could read the message specifically for those. If your card is upside down, you would read the protection message. As you can see from the back of the cards, you can’t tell if which way a card is facing.

This deck has been extremely accurate for me. And that’s the other thing about this deck that reminds me more of tarot; it’s less room for interpretation, but the messages are also more specific so that is really nice. The artwork is insanely gorgeous and I love looking at each card and finding my message in the artwork as well.


Sacred Rebels Oracle

Sacred Rebels Oracle

This is a BEAUTIFUL deck with a guidebook that is very thorough and deep. Each card comes with a suggested healing meditation in the book.

I usually use this deck for career guidance since my blog is so much more than just a blog to me; it’s my creative outlet and a place that I have invested myself in shining my light for others. Even if it were to make no money for me, I would still be here writing because that’s just what I love to do.

This deck is for those who consider themselves creative or who are wanting to live authentically.


Daily Guidance from Your Angels

Daily Guidance from Your Angels

Most often when you see me pulling a card for my morning self-care routine on Instagram, it’s this deck I’m using. This is a perfect deck for exactly what it says–daily guidance.

This deck is great to use to set the tone of your day, give you something to positive that you need to focus on and remember throughout your day, and to help shift your energy if you’re feeling a certain kind of way!


Butterfly Oracle Cards for Life Changes

Butterfly Oracle Cards for Life Changes

I have to say even though I don’t use this deck on a frequent basis, it has given me some readings that just straight up said exactly what I was going through and what I needed to focus on in order to get through it.

I got this deck because I have a big life change coming up and I’ve been shifting and sorting through my emotions and all the “what-if’s” of each possible scenario (where my INFP’s at?!).

The other day I pulled “End of an Era” and another card that was also about adjusting and preparing for this change. I would say I couldn’t believe it, but I totally believe it because I know my spirit guides and the Universe are always guiding me, especially when I’m asking for it.


Angels of Abundance Oracle Cards

Angels of Abundance Oracle Cards

This is my deck that I use the least, but that I think is a powerful deck to work with. I got it because I know for sure I have blocks when it comes to abundance and money, so I wanted to work through that with this deck.

I think it’s a great deck to use weekly and give yourself a focus around abundance for the week. Usually the cards are guiding you to work on a certain area of your abundance blocks, so weekly would give you time to focus specifically around a certain block without losing thought of it.


Children’s Spirit Animal Cards

Children’s Spirit Animal Cards

For those of you who have kids, I L-O-V-E this deck. It’s such a great way to get in touch with a child, to initiate conversations they might be wanting to have but don’t know how to bring it up, and to give them encouragement and guidance.

Children are just as in touch with Source, if not more, than we are; it’s pretty amazing to watch how quickly they choose a card and how accurate it is for them. Actually the last card my 7 year old pulled started a very emotional conversation that he was pretty upset about but had been too embarrassed to talk about. I just can’t say enough good things about these cards.


How I pull oracle cards

Most decks come with a booklet that will tell you how to clear your deck and infuse your own energy into it, and they’ll usually have some suggested spreads and general instructions on how to use the cards.

For me, this is what I do every time I sit down to pull cards:

  • Clear the deck; I usually do this by holding the deck in my left hand, closing my eyes, and tapping it with my right hand while envisioning it popping with white light, holding it over palo santo, and I usually lay a selenite crystal on top of the deck while holding another selenite crystal on my third eye and/or over my heart.
  • I ask my spirit guides to be present and to help guide me towards what I need to know
  • I shuffle my deck until I intuitively feel ready to stop, thinking of my question, and then pull a card that feels right. If I feel hung up, I picture all the cards being blank and remember that whichever card I pull will hold the message I need to see.
  • Turn my card over and begin taking notes. I look at the illustration on the card, taking note of what’s in the picture: colors, symbols, numbers, etc, and then begin reading inside the booklet.

You have to learn to read between the lines as well. Not every description is going to fit you exactly, so I look for words or sentences that I feel are for me. Your spirit guides/Source is showing you this card because somewhere, in the illustration or within the description, there is SOMETHING you need to see. So I look for it.

I also keep my notes from all of my card pulls because it’s nice to be able to go back over them a few days later or anytime I’m needing to hear the message again. I also might spend a few days studying one specific card. I will research the number I pulled or what the symbols or animals on the card mean.

Most often I do my spreads from Manifesting Magic with the Moon, which has a spread for each lunar phase. I write my notes in the boxes and then keep them filed in my moon binder. I also keep lots of different oracle and tarot spreads on my Pinterest board Oracle.

I also recently purchased this beautiful card stand on Etsy:

A list of my favorite oracle decks #witchythings #oracledecks #sacredselfcare #dwellinmagic

I love placing a recent card pull on this stand so that I can see it all week and be reminded of it’s message.


I hope you enjoyed this post–if you pull oracle or tarot cards, I love to know which ones are your go-to’s. Better yet, if you only got to take ONE deck out of a burning building, which deck would you make sure you had in your hand?

This is so freakin hard but I think I’d have to choose…agghhh….Goddess Guidance. Damn that wasn’t easy; second choice would definitely be Wisdom of the Oracle. I’d find a way to smuggle both.

If you’d like more sacred self-care inspiration, connect with me on Instagram where I share my self-care routine and moon rituals on Insta stories. If you’d like more direct support and community with like-minded people, come join the Dwell in Magic Facebook group, where we discuss self-care every Sunday. And for free spiritual self-care resources and gifts, sign up for the Dwell in Magic weekly newsletter.

Lots of love,

  1. My current favorite is the linestrider tarot (although I`ve wanted to get the spirite de la lune oracle deck for a while now and I am pretty sure it wil be my favorite once I do buy it) and I use it a lot.
    I usually shuffle until it feels right, then spread the cards face down on the table and run my left hand (the hand of the heart as my mother calls it) over it and pick those I feel a connection to.

    • Spirite de la lune sounds really familiar…hmmm, I’ll have to look it up. And yes that is my favorite way to pull cards recently as well. I love that your mother calls the left hand the hand of the heart, that’s beautiful.

  2. If you were considering starting to pull cards and using oracle cards which would you suggest (even if it’s not one of these you talk about)?

  3. Your decks look good. 🙂 I have Daily Guidance from your Angels too, that’s one of my faves and also Doreen Virtue’s Magical Mermaids and Dolphins. Lucy Cavendish’s Oracle of the Mermaids is good as well. I also just got Oceanic Tarot by Jayne Wallace for my birthday, so look forward to trying that out.

    • I just got the Magical Mermaids and Dolphins deck, I’m so happy to hear that’s one of your favs as well! I haven’t used it yet, very excited to though. I’ll have to look up Oceanic Tarot, that sounds good.

  4. My first ones and favourite are my ‘’Messages from your angels’ oracle cards, I simply couldn’t be without those! Thank

I'm a new blogger and found your blog planner a couple weeks back. I instantly fell in love with it, it was everything I was looking for and more. I have a horrible habit of buying planners and never using them, until I bought this one. I always have it next to me when I blog and I'm constantly pulling it out to add things to it.
