What Do You Look For In A Tarot Deck?

This May Be A Bit Difficult To Answer — Many Factors May Go Into Our Selection Of Tarot Decks . . .

I’ll begin by saying I need to have an interest in the overall theme of the particular Tarot Deck. Yet, I have to admit I’ve been drawn in at times to my complete surprise.

The artwork is important. I also enjoy being able to relate to the cards — if I’m feeling comfortable and want to look at them and draw in all the symbolism and creativity.

The publisher, Adams Media, is not one I’ve heard about before. Yet, they did an outstanding job with Midnight Magic.

I like having a variety of Tarot Decks available — to fit my mood or the time of year. I try not to impulsively buy a new Tarot Deck . . . but I have done so in the past — it worked out all right, but I doubt I would have gotten it had there been another choice.

It may sound strange, but the name of the Tarot Deck is important — some names draw you in, others not so much. I have been disappointed by some great named Tarot Decks and like some that I have a hard time remembering or pronouncing.

I’m drawn to certain artists and artistic styles.

I also enjoy some humor in the artwork . . . it doesn’t have to be fall-on-the-floor laughing humor, but in one Tarot Deck, I have, The Charot is a grocery cart. 

Whatever your criteria are for selecting Tarot Decks, I am grateful you have stopped by to see what I’ve added. Until next time,
