This tarot deck is a suit of 53 cards used by many psychic readers in france where this game comes from. Many psychic readers use it and if more and more people use it in order to perform there own tarot reading it is because these cards are very easy to use and give a lot of details about several issues.
Why is it so accurate?
These cards were made by Edmond de Belline during the 19th century just for clairvoyance, not for playing. That is important, each card has a different and unique meaning, one card, on idea. When tarot of Marseilles is sometimes difficult to understand (we can mention temperance, death, the star, the fool), Belline Oracle is always easy to read even by novices readers. Where does this simplicity comes from? We told it before, only one idea per card and not a very detailed picture on the card. in fact we are sure that Belline was not a great artist but this was not the goal followed by him. This game was made by a clairvoyant not by a card player.

How to draw Belline Oracle?
Like for other tarot we can do a cross reading but card postion will have a different meaning than celtic cross reading. Here we do a simple cross with 5 cards, not more. First card means present, second one on the right shows what is against, top card shows what will happen during realisation of the answer process, fourth card on the bottom is the answer and the last one in the middle is a summary of the whole reading. Nothing is more simple than this cross but it gives an accurate reading because of the deck himself and all we said before about its number, precision and clearness.
As we see belline oracle is certainly of of the best tarot reading tool. Not well known in all parts of the world, we are sure that this Oracle will grow-up to become a famous psychic reading tool.
