I was gifted with my first tarot deck when I was 16. It was the Arthurian Tarot by Caitlin and John Matthews and it was a gift from my older sister Krystie. I fell in love immediately and I have been doing readings since. For the first year or so I carried the deck with me everywhere I went and slept with it beneath my pillow. I had a notebook where I would write down the meanings of the cards, and any insights I might have about the cards as I was reading. After a couple of years I no longer needed the book or my notes to read.
Currently I am waiting for a new tarot deck and an oracle deck that my husband backed for me on Kickstarter. One is The Oriens Tarot Deck by AmbiSun which is a Rider-Waite-Smith based deck that features animals on the cards. The art work is gorgeous and it will be coming to me from Australia. The oracle is the Witches of Legend oracle deck by Annabelle Lewis. It is still open for three more days, and the artwork on it is gorgeous.
The tarot I use the most currently is the Deviant Moon tarot by Patrick Valenza. I was gifted the Crow Tarot by MJ Cullinane by my younger sister Traci for my birthday this year and the deck and I are still getting to know each other.
Have you ever had your cards read? Do you read as well? Do you practice another form of divination?
I have a tarot deck I’ve owned since I brought it myself at 17 years old, and a set of amethyst runes I’ve had for about seven years or so. I haven’t touched either in a while though (with the cards it’s because I have an accessability issue; trying to figure out how to make them tactile, since I can no longer see the pictures, without risking them being easy enough for me to read while handling them that it might influence the drawing and the reading) and am not as skilled with remembering the meanings as you are.

I had not thought about how incredibly visual the tarot is until right now. I wonder if someone somewhere has created a tarot or other divination tool specifically with that in mind. If not, someone should.

If they have, I haven’t found it (and I did look). If you ever hear of someone who has, please do let me know.
