Oracle Infographic – Tools of Divination – Part 1

Oracle Infographic – Tools of Divination – Cartomancy & Alphabets

This Oracle Infographic gives a basic rundown of what the most common oracles are in the fields of cartomancy and alphabets. It is by no means an exhaustive exploration of what each of them are. Simply a quick tool to understanding what the differences are.

When you are just entering the divination world, the overwhelming number of forms and tools for practicing can be incredibly intimidating and frustrating. I know that I personally found it difficult trying to decipher all the differences!


What is cartomancy? It’s the practice of divining the future using cards. Tarot, Lenormand, Oracle Cards, and even playing cards, are examples of cartomancy tools. Seems simple, right? Essentially it is, but where it becomes intimidating  is the vast number of decks available! Honestly, there are thousands of decks out there for each of the “genres”. Stay tuned for deck reviews. Soon you will discover that I have a deck addiction!


What the heck do alphabets have to do with divining? You’d be surprised to find that lot of insight is available through the use of these alphabets! I only touch on the two I’m most familiar with in this oracle infographic, but there are many more out there. You’ve likely heard about Runes, but Ogham is a bit more obscure. Both bring insight into a situation. When divining with these alphabets, the answers you get are much less embellished than those you would get from cartomancy.

Future Infographics

I am working on putting together a few more infographics like this one. Let me know if you found this helpful and I am always open to suggestions. As previously mentioned that are a great many oracles for use out there. The next infographic will touch on lithomancy, scrying, and pendulums.
