While it bears little resemblance to an actual heart, the stylized heart is possibly one of the most universal symbols we have. It appears frequently in Oracle Cards, as well as around us in daily life. When you see a heart in an Oracle Card you can be sure it is pointing to something to do with love and emotion.
Here, In the Oracle of the Unicorn Card – Compassion, if you look closely you can see the heart rendered in white and gold. In fact, this heart looks a lot like a flower. In this case, it speaks of the purity of loving and cherishing yourself. Of compassion and forgiveness.
The Enchanted Map Oracle Card – Commitment is a classic “Marriage’ card, the joined hands surrounded by bright red hearts. This card speaks love into any situation that it is drawn for.
