I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube Videos where people talk about their favorite decks, decks they would keep and those they plan to let go. Some of the reasons are those they use and those they don’t . . . or they just don’t particularly like something about the deck — usually the artwork. Our tastes and preferences change over the years. I was wondering earlier when I was writing this review about some of my Tarot decks and why I bought them . . . especially when I hear something negative about a particular deck . . . It makes me wonder, then I remember why I bought it or what I was aiming for in my personal collection . . . But time will tell how many I would keep and use and how many may have been a mistake . . .
I’ve also gotten a bit more serious about my Tarot Journey . . . I think I’ve always been serious, but didn’t want to put forth the effort in learning and practicing . . . Everyone has their own approach to learning. It’s best to do what works for you, not what others believe is the correct approach. Yet, I’m going to throw in my two cents . . . I’ve been reading and watching Vincent Pitisci — he has three books I purchased and in these books and also in several of his videos, he maps out key words to all the cards with additional words that relate to the main key word that helps broaden or deepen the meaning to fit in any given issue a person would have . . . The key word concept is much easier than trying to memorize a paragraph description — but perhaps reading the description brings out the value of the key words . . . That’s what I’ve found. We or I need a “hook” to attach it — perhaps that’s the Tarot card image, but we may use a different deck and the key is to be able to pick up any Tarot deck and be able to read the cards . . . Just my thoughts.
