It’s been my experience that very few oracle decks do anything useful. The majority of “oracle” decks on the market provide conspicuously positive results, regardless of the card or question involved, which is often why you have no “reverse” interpretation in the reading; there is no “negative” aspect to the card, it represents only one thing. This, in particular, is why the interpretation of tarot cards can be so accurate; there’s always another side to the coin, a negative to counter the positive. Oracle decks, on the whole, do not address this. They assign a meaning to an image, or an image to a meaning, and move on to the next card.

Which brings us to the reason they have such varying numbers from deck to deck. This is because there is no shared standard between them. Oracle decks do not follow a set divination system. Tarot has the same prescribed meanings across all decks, and in order to accommodate those meanings, the same number and type of cards must be included. In an oracle deck, there are as many or as few cards as the creators deem necessary. With no universal standard, deck creators are free to assign the meanings they want for whatever reason they want. For instance, say you have an artist who enjoys depicting various types of mermaids. That artist may decide to use their artwork to create an Oracle deck. Using the types of mermaids, the artist decides what that particular type of mermaid represents TO THEM, and writes it down for you to use. Tarot, on the other hand, uses definitions that have evolved over many, many years, but remained more or less consistent. They’re not the personal bias of a single creator, or small group of creators pumping out a product for the New Age market.

My advice would be to stick with tarot if you want an all purpose divination deck that stands a chance of actually serving a purposes. There is such a wide variety of artwork and stunning diversity of styles available within tarot that it’s hard to not find something you’re happy to use.

I haven’t had any useful or reliable results with oracle decks, but I’ve never had a tarot reading miss the mark.

1)please suggest me a Standard oracle deck suitable for all purpose
There is no such thing as a “standard oracle deck.” Oracle decks are all unique and don’t follow any system the way tarot decks do. Some decks are indeed better for some things than others. Some decks have an overall message in ALL the cards with only slight variations while others may have different lessons in each card but only be able to do certain kinds of readings. I know people who appreciate the “Angel Oracle” deck or the “Druid Animal Oracle” or the Frouds “Fairie Oracle” or the “Shell Oracle”, but I’m not especially fond of oracle decks. I own the “Animal Cards” and I like them well-enough and I think they are suitable for certain things, but oracle decks don’t really function like tarot… they seem overall more vague and less detailed about specific life situations.

2) why no reversed cards are used?
Because the artwork on the cards, tarot and oracle alike, are meant to be viewed and interpreted upright. What happens when you take the mona-lisa and tip it up-side-down? It’s still a masterpiece, but it’s harder to figure out what’s going on in the picture, right? Same with cards. They’re artwork and most artists intend for their work to be viewed at eye level in an upright position, not tipped up-side-down. If you are trying to pull intuitive messages and symbols out of the artwork, it helps if you can see it straight-on, right? I’m not sure how tarot readers started using “reversed” cards, but I’ve never really liked the practice. It only works if you’re memorizing a set of meanings and, to me, that’s not the point of reading the cards… you need to see the images and interpret them, otherwise why don’t the cards just have the meanings written on them?

3)why different decks have different numbers of cards like 44,52,65…?
That’s the nature of oracle decks. They can be anything at all. There is no set system for them and they can contain any number of cards and images because they don’t have to match a specific pattern. You’ll notice that there are no suits in oracle decks, either (well, I’ve never seen an oracle deck with suits, anyways.) That’s because they’re not following a set pattern… the only pattern they follow is the overall concept that the artist who created them was trying to get across. It’s like having a deck with all different variations of wild-cards.
That’s another reason I’m not really fond of them.

If you want an oracle deck, don’t pick it just because it says “oracle” on the box. Find a deck whose artwork really moves you or whose overall concept strikes you in a place of deep understanding. If you chose an oracle deck, you’ll have to learn a whole new system. If you get a second oracle deck, you’ll have to learn a second new system. Each oracle deck has its own system, so you’re not looking for just an oracle deck the way you look for the right tarot deck… you’re looking for a SPECIFIC deck and it happens to be an oracle deck, not a tarot deck. Only get an oracle deck if the artwork and the system look very appealing to you, don’t just get it because it’s an oracle deck.

I don’t need your birthday.. I need a question.

If you are looking for a good tarot reading you need to do it in person. Your birthday has nothing to do with it. For you to get a good reading you must be able to touch the cards. If you want an online reading go to http://facade.com/
