In an effort to get to know my growing collection of decks, I thought I would try doing more daily cards instead of full on spreads—just for those ones I feel like I’m having a hard time connecting with or understanding. The challenge will be integrating this into my chaotic morning routine (especially with my returning to the office very soon), but I think this is the only way for me to really get to know them and their meanings. I feel like intuitive reading is a concept for more advanced users who’ve already mastered the foundations. On that note, I’m definitely aware that I’m still very much a noob.
I already know that on some mornings I just will not have the time to do any dailies, so I’m glad that I have the app version for some of my decks, especially the Shadowscapes. The deck has a whispery, dreamy type of feel to them but sometimes I feel like there’s a lot going on in each card and I have a hard time grasping the meaning. Still, I think the artwork is phenomenal and I’m very happy that it’s a part of my collection.
Last night, as I was trying to sleep and failing, I came up with the idea of moving my desk to make room for my multipurpose table that I currently had stowed away. I thought maybe if I sacrifice some entry room into the office, I can finally have my tarot/art table after all. Well, I couldn’t wait for tonight so this morning I asked Ken to help me move my desk and viola! On display are the new decks I’m currently working with. I have more on the way.
I’m very grateful and super excited. 🙂
I continue to be blown away by the sheer eeriness of tarot reading. I shuffled three times (I prefer the riffle shuffle style). Cut the deck into three, reordered. All the while focusing on the question in my mind. I laid the cards out as the spread indicated and damn I feel like the universe really is speaking to me. Like it knows me. Sees me. And is eager to give me direction.
For a while now, I’ve been in need of clarity and guidance in my life so needless to say, I think I’ll be doing this particular spread more often.
Now I need to figure out a way to make room in my night stand for my growing tarot collection because as of right now I have 7 more decks on the way.
Yesterday, I impulsively purchased two new decks that caught my eye, Cat Tarot and Daily Crystal Inspiration (DCI). On first impression, the Cat Tarot card stock is kind of on the thin side, but I’m not really bothered by it. I got it because I thought the artwork was funny, playful, and endearing.
As for the other one, though it is a bit hard to shuffle, I really like the simplicity and clean look of the DCI oracle deck. For some reason I like it more than the Judy Hall one, though I might still get that one in the future.
So here are my cards of the day from these two new decks, along with a card from the Animal Spirit:
