Oracle Cards - A Little Hit of Wisdom for March

Hi guys! So in my previous post I outlined that Beautifinous is now becoming a beauty and wellness blog, so today I wanted to come at you all with something wellness related to kickstart that aspect.

To do that I’ve decided to write up an oracle card post. What are oracle cards? you may be asking. Oracle cards are on the same tangent as tarot cards, which may be a more familiar idea. No, we won’t be going into fortune telling as I don’t personally believe that’s what oracle cards are all about (more on that in a moment), but we will be using them to dig into some of that inner wisdom that we’re all carrying within us and may be struggling to reach.

But aren’t tarot cards all about telling the future? I guess that depends on your own beliefs. Some people say yes, yet others say no. I’m on the no side for cards (yet I’ll never discredit anyone carrying opposing beliefs to myself), but it doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy or get the most out of tarot or oracle cards. So what else can oracle and tarot cards be used for? As I stated above, I think that oracle and tarot cards are fantastic at digging into your own inner wisdom. Let me explain further. 

Each of us carry wisdom, even if we don’t realise it. Admit it - nobody knows you better than you know yourself. If you’re stuck in a problem, somewhere, deep down, you know what you’re supposed to do. Sometimes though we all have a little trouble accessing the answers that we need to hear, whether it be due to feeling low, having a head full of thoughts or even down to simply not wanting to acknowledge them. The best way that I can describe what oracle cards are is that they’re a prompt that we can use to access that wisdom. 

How do oracle cards work? How do oracle cards differ to tarot cards? Tarot cards are a deck of 78 cards that include the major arcana (the cards you may be most familiar with) and the minor arcana (more like playing cards, these come in suits). No matter what tarot deck you buy, they will always have the same cards with different illustrations. Oracle cards vary far more and can be based on anything that the creator of them wishes.

Announcement Time - Blog Genre Update

Hey guys! So, it's been a while, right? Well, I am here today and I have some news for you all.

No, I have no forgotten about the blog and neither is the blog coming to an end. I have had some family related things that I have needed to dedicate my time to, but during the time that I have been away I feel like I have evolved as a person in many ways. I have taken up some new hobbies and found new interests, and these involve things that I feel have made me a happier person overall. Because of this, I wanted to bring some of this to the blog alongside what I already write about.

I have therefore decided to open up my blog to become a beauty and wellness blog. I feel that this is a natural extension to the messages that I have already had to bring to the blog as I have always wanted to help others to feel happier and more confident about themselves and I feel that by opening up the blog to including wellness allows me to dive deeper into this aspect and hopefully to bring some additional joy to the world in some form.

Wellness posts will also allow me to partake in more collaborative projects, so if this is something that takes your fancy and you have some ideas about spreading some positivity then do feel free to shoot me an email!

I hope to have a nice balance between beauty related posts and wellness posts, but whilst I settle in to the new topics I may release a few more wellness related posts (author's excitement and all that!).

I really hope that you continue to enjoy the content that I bring to the blog and I thank you all for your patience and love.

Keep on being amazing!
