The Every Day Oracle, an authentic Italian oracle, is a great way to get quick, clear answers to common concerns. The images are easy to read intuitively, so you needn’t rely on memorizing the booklet.
Tarot cards are packed with layers of imagery. You can approach a Tarot card from so many angles: traditional meaning, astrological, elemental, or numeric correspondences, symbolic interpretation, intuitive messages, etc. But sometimes you just want an easy answer, an old-school fortune-telling. If you get this occasional craving, it is good to have an oracle deck on hand. A historic oracle (such as a Lenormand or Sibilla) is ideal for clear, quick answers.
The Every Day Oracle is, according to the booklet, an authentic Italian Oracle. There are 52 cards, just as in a playing card deck. In fact, the cards are all named as such: Ace of hearts, Queen of Spades, Three of Clubs, etc. However, there are no suit designations on the cards, just a letter and a number. The numbers indicate what number the card is, 1–10, and the Jacks, Queens, and Kings are 11, 12, and 13. The letter indicates which suit the card belongs to. The letter, however, correspond to the Italian names of the suits: C = hearts, F = clubs, Q = diamonds, and P = spades. Having the card suit and number will let you look up the meanings, as that is how they are organized in the accompanying booklet.
This deck is great for fortune-telling. You can just look up the meanings or figure out the obvious meanings by the pictures on the cards. The images are even easier to read than Lenormand because there is slightly more activity and the images are more literal.
Seriously, if you like oracles and are interested in one that is easier to read than a Lenormand, you should give this deck a try.
