Q: Can I have a better look at the deck?

A: Yes! Go check out my IG for lots of pictures of these decks. I also will be uploading YouTube videos and TikTok’s showing off and doing walkthroughs of these decks. If you can’t find it email me at help@ariffleintime.com for some photos.

Q: Which deck is for me? Can you give me suggestions?

A: I am going to be offering deck consultations but while I figure out the logistics of that you can always reach out to me on the contact page or in the comments on IG!

Q: What is the difference between Tarot & Oracle?

A: I’ll give you a short and sweet answer but feel free to take this to google where there are much longer articles if you want to dig in. Tarot has a specific structure where as oracle is free to be whatever. People might change the names of the tarot cards but they stick to the same 78 traditional structure. There are different systems and so much more to this. There are many great resources in learning more about tarot and I am looking to make a blog post of my favorites. I use both tarot and oracle and usually together when doing a reading. I’ll let you in on a secret that I had to learn the hard way. It is your practice, don’t let anyone make you feel like you have to do something a certain way. 

Q: What is an Indie Deck?

A: A deck that has been funded and created by the individual artist without a publisher. S

Q: Why are these decks more expensive than ones on Amazon?

A: Indie decks will always be more expensive because they are produced by individual artist not large publishers like US Games. I can more directly support the artist who made the deck and it feels good to me. I have purchased my own copies of all these decks and then chose to bring them to the shop. 

Q: Do you offer Mass Market decks?

A: Right now no. I am not saying I will never because there are beautiful and meaningful mass market decks too and I would love to give people an option other than Amazon for those decks. With saying that I currently am focusing on Independent Decks because a lot of time, effort and their own money goes into that and I would love to do anything I can to help get the word out about them. Also if I am being transparent I shop Indie personally and I want to bring in what I use and love. There is one mass market deck I do use that I have considered bringing in because it has been a major part of my personal practice, The Goddess Oracle by Amy Sophia Marashinsky and Hana Janto that US Games does produce.
