One of my #newyear #resolutions was to embrace my intuition. I‘ve been exploring crystals and tarot as part of that goal. (I‘m already into essential oils, astrology, and meditation). The Spirit Almanac recommends getting a tarot deck that resonates with you. I have an old Rider-Waite deck, but it has never resonated with me. Any recommendations for #tarot decks? 🔮

NotAJot I like the Druid Craft Tarot Deck - the artwork is beautiful and I prefer the Druid re-imagining of some of the cards 😀 11mo
Weaponxgirl I like the wild unknown deck but the best thing to do is look at a few different ones and see what you are personally drawn to. I‘ve got a few different ones now that I use for different moods 11mo
REPollock I use the Crowley deck. I don‘t care for Crowley himself but the woman who did the art for the cards made some really cool images. 11mo

nudibranch Agree with @Weaponxgirl , the wild unknown tarot is great. Although it's also a lot of fun to out together a tarot deck of your own, starting with a blank deck 😊 11mo
Weaponxgirl @nudibranch I would love to do that but I haven‘t got the talent vs how much of a perfectionist I am when it comes to that sort of thing. 11mo
nudibranch @Weaponxgirl Haha yeah, it's a lot of work for sure! I've seen some really great collage decks, though, too. 11mo
Weaponxgirl @nudibranch oh I admire the people who do it so much! I just know that I would be stuck playing the fool trying to get the fool right for years and getting cross with myself 😂 11mo
catiewithac @NotAJot @nudibranch @Weaponxgirl @REPollock thanks for sharing your recommendations! There are so many great decks out there that it‘s hard to choose. But I think I‘m going with Morgan Greer! (edited) 11mo
