What's the difference between tarot and oracle cards?

What's the difference between tarot and oracle cards?

Oracle cards? Tarot card? What's the difference? Can I read both? Is one easier than the other? Help!

The world of Tarot and Oracle cards is overwhelming. There is endless designs, packs, books...it can all be a little much sometimes. So what is fundamentally different? 

Basically tarot cards come in a more structed deck and there are a few more rules involved. Oracle cards are a bit more free flowing. Tarot cards standardly have 78 cards, some decks might have 80 or 44, but majority have 78. Oracle cards can have any content and any number of cards. Tarot cards have traditional structure and common meanings. 

Oracle cards hold a bigger energy and give an insight into a greater sense of what is going on. Tarot cards are a bit more detailed. Tarot cards are like pages to a book, each card is one page telling the story, where as oracle cards are like the whole chapter. A wider section of the story.

You can use both cards! Most people tend to do multiple tarot readings in one session compared to a single oracle card reading.
