I Wanted To Take A Moment To Discuss Connecting With Your Tarot Deck
Whenever I get a new deck, I do all the unwrapping and I immediately count the cards. I just want to make sure all 78 of them are there.
I then move on to a walkthrough — also checking that all the cards are in the suit as they should be . . .
I do like the concept of going through the cards with the guidebook to get a fuller understanding of each card’s meaning . . . And . . . I also like the idea of placing the cards in different piles . . . those I especially resonate with, those I’m not resonating with at all . . . and those that are just all right . . . This step for me may come before I delve into the book to get a fuller understanding of the author’s intent of each card’s meaning . . .
I also enjoyed the concept of asking a question of the deck and selecting a card and from that card pretty much selecting the next question before selecting the next card . . . So, essentially, this is allowing the deck to conduct the interview . . . This is a fresh concept that will be different for each deck you have and for each time you want to connect with your deck.
I regularly ask the Tarot what it has to tell me . . . This could include things I need to know or do . . . Sometimes I have a specific issue I want to discuss with Tarot . . . I do look for answers, but usually guidance . . . Of course, you use your Tarot cards however you decide is best for you and for the deck you’re using.
I don’t want to rehash Dawn Michelle’s points here . . . she did a fine job, as did the Zen Witch in her review of Modern SpellCaster’s Tarot.
As with most reviews and instructional videos, we receive our own ideas and thoughts while we’re viewing. That’s what is so great about them. I find it interesting how I can revisit a video and get a completely different message from it . . . I may have evolved or I was in a better state of mind . . . This is why I believe connecting with your deck is so important . . .
I do hope this was helpful and beneficial to you . . . Either to select a new Tarot deck or to connect with a deck or two you have.
