A Wikipedia Definition
This short introduction is taken from the wikipedia online encyclopedia and offers an overview on the different types of oracle card decks...
Oracle card decks claim to provide insight and positive outlooks to people. They are conceptually similar to divinatory tarot cards, but they are often not divided into playing card suits. They often lack what is often seen as the "darker" images of traditional tarot cards. Unlike the Tarot, oracle cards are not known to be used for card games. Oracle decks often differ in the number of cards. Common themes used in oracle card decks involve the power of positive thought and metaphysical beings such as angels, fairies, mermaids and unicorns. These cards are sometimes called "fortune telling packs"
Some of the earlier "Oracle" or "fortune telling" cards are similar to conventional playing cards and may even carry the French suit system. These fortune telling cards often claim a "Gypsy" tradition of cartomancy and pre-date the New Age movement by a great many years. One type of early fortune telling pack named after famous cartomancer Marie Anne Lenormand is popular in Europe. In recent history tarot cards have been used for divination, however this is not known to have been their original use. The earliest uses of tarot cards are for trick taking card games which are still enjoyed today in Europe.

Tarot reading is all about your personal interpretation of the cards and their meanings. Not all the meanings will make sense at first...
An oracle is a person or agency considered to be a source of wise counsel or prophetic opinion. It may also be a revealed prediction or precognition of the future, from deities, that is spoken through another object or life-form (e.g.: augury and auspice).
In the ancient world many sites gained a reputation for the dispensing of oracular wisdom: they too became known as "oracles," and the oracular utterances, called khresmoi in Greek, were often referred to under the same name ó a name derived from the Latin verb orare, to speak.
The World's Most Consulted Oracle
Kwan Yin is venerated by most Asian religions as a savior and the Goddess of Mercy. For thousands of years, in one way or another, Eastern cultures have been worshipping Kwan Yin, Kuan Yin, Quan Yin, Kannon, and Guan Yin, as the Most Compassionate Goddess of Mercy.

Stories from A-Z
Spiritual Power, Oracles and Tarot
Nowadays many lists of webpages (including these pages on Avalonís Treasury) offer the possibility to not only provide a title and a short description for your site but to also publish a whole story that points to your website. You should use this opportunity since an informative story acquires much more new visitors for your internet pages than a simple entry in a list of websites.
Texts for the internet should be written differently than stories for a newspaper or a book: Since most of the visitors of an internet page only skim through the offered texts in order to find the information they seek as quickly as possible a solid structure of your story is crucial for its success. It is therefore best to already start your text with a summarizing overview and to only then present the detail information step by step - this way your readers will know from the beginning what the text will be about.
The different ideas of your story should be arranged as short paragraphs which should not be longer than 3-4 sentences. Certainly your text starts with a main heading that summarizes the content of the story, that is to the point and that is not longer than 10 words - but also subheadings should be used as additional structural elements. Furthermore important parts of the story should be written in bold or italics if they are citations. Since italic characters can be hard to read on screen alternatively citations can be highlighted using quotation marks or (as we will see later) they can be written in colour if they are especially important for your story. But please make sure that you don't overuse coloured or bold text since your story otherwise can become confusing.
All structural elements mentioned so far make it easier to quickly skim through a text and to find the information sought. For the same purpose also bulleted lists are ideal especially if you want to talk about different facts that you have to present in a structured manner. It is also true that numbered lists can enhance the overall clearness if you want to talk about a fixed number of ideas (e.g. The 10 best Methods to make your Website famous). Also images and references structure a story: Images can enhance the interest for a text further by using an informative caption and references can lead to the originator of a quotation - these citations are best marked by coloured text to make them stand out even more.
