[Tweet “I’ve heard one person say they can’t read with it because the people are too familiar.”]
Today’s challenge was about Tarot. I’m choosing to talk about one of my favorite Tarot decks. I don’t have one deck to rule them all as it were. That would have to be one damned riveting deck since I have close to three hundred decks.
Currently holding the lead position (which means it is my primary reading deck when I work with my clients) is the Gaian Tarot
This deck incorporates very real people and scenes. It translates the Rider Waite Smith icons into ones that many people can identify with. Joanna Powell Colbert’s deck infuses her passion for the Pacific Northwest with her unique vision and spirituality.
Make no mistake–this is a Goddess-influenced deck. I think it is a deck anyone can read but some are put off by the people. I’ve heard one person say they can’t read with it because the people are too familiar. I get that. But this deck works for me.
I personally own three mass market copies plus two of the limited edition. When I find a deck I love, I do that. I need to get back-up copies.
Now I am more than willing to read for a client with any deck they like. I did that this morning in fact. My client specifically asked me to read with the Wild Unknown. She has the deck so wanted to see it in use by a professional.
What about you? Do you have one deck? More decks? What do you look for in a deck? What draws you to a Tarot or oracle deck?
What I need finds me. I am a magnet. I attract the right people at the right time. I embellish my world simply by smiling. I am filled with joy. Loved and loving, I love each of you. Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.
