Will hang back and keep watch to see what others say..
That's my question, too. Technically, they are all oracles, only particularly card-based.

I remember way back when, I PMed Solandia about using the Minchiate in the Tarot Forums. Her response was something along the lines that it is closely related to tarot, so make posts about the Minchiate in the Tarot Forum. (This was before the Historical Forum.)

What guides our distinction between Tarot, Lenormand, Oracles, etc. Is it their histories? Popularity? Traditional?

Does any distinction at all need to be made apart from organization and convenience?
