The Oracle Video School:

Welcome to The Playing Card Oracle School. Here you will find a completely original, organic vision of Card Reading with Playing Cards that will open your eyes to the 52-card deck we have all looked at a million times but never really seen. If you can watch a youtube video, you can take this course.

The Goal of the School is ultimately to get you comfortable with the basic language in the deck, to get you on your way to a lifetime of insight and amazement, always available anytime there is a deck of playing cards to be found. After watching any of the videos, a whole new vision of cards will begin unfolding for you.

What you’ll find are 20 completely free videos, with no need to set up an account and no hassles. The videos bring you Ana’s own go-to card reading essentials, cherry picked from the book, The Playing Card Oracles, A Source Book for Divination.  Follow the videos in order, or allow your curiosity to guide you on your own personal Oracle journey.

For MORE videos, subscribe to the youtube channel. Also, be sure to join the Playing Card Oracles Discord. Here you’ll find practice opportunities and the all important Oracle Community, where Ana will be checking in and answering questions.
