My New Tarot Deck

Ok, so I'm at the bookstore the other day when I happened upon a Tarot deck that caught my eye & wouldn't let go. So, like any resourceful witch, I used "Girl Math" to figure out if this would be worth while for me to get. I figured the deck was $24.95 and learning a deck would cost me about a day (or less) to learn and factoring out the joy it would bring me (priceless) I bought it.

The deck is full of wonderfully designed artwork, that the artist did using her Deviant Art account. She used real models for each of the 78 cards and added in digital enhancements. Now I know Tarot has entered into the 21st century. This is a beautiful deck, very airy feeling. The only drawback I find is that each card is based on the Rider-Waite deck. I only have one deck out of my 5 that strays from this formula: The Vampire Tarot by Nathalie Hertz.

I finally bought this deck myself not long ago. Every time I ventured into the book store, it would end up in my hands. After a reading back in May, I was told I should/would learn to read Tarot and that I needed to get a deck, this is the one I ended buying. I'm still learning though.

I have this deck as well. I actually quite like it. I've been reading Tarot since I was 12 (so, okay, 31 years now) and am still learning. A friend asked me the other day how many decks I had...I named 13 off the top of my head but know that I have many others, including oracle decks and crystal and rune sets for divination as well...I really should go organize them...:)

I love this deck. I don't personally own it but it is one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy it.
