  1. I bit the bullet and ordered the Last Unicorn deck. Cant wait for it to arrive!
  2. There is a Ceccoli tarot and Oracle deck, the Deviant moon deck is getting a sister Oracle deck if I'm remembering right, the wild unknown has a sister Oracle deck by the same creator, the beautiful creatures tarot works well with the Oracle decks by the same artist (Myths & Mermaids, I think theres a Halloween/Carnival one as well)...those are all I can think of at the moment
  3. Is this study group still on-going? Are we able to post threads with the cards?
  4. Honestly, I don't feel like cards hold as much energy as people may estimate. If anything, I think it's more the energy attachment we have to our cards that give them "negative vibes" or energy overload. I'm more likely to ground and cleanse myself than my cards. I don't really have a cleansing ritual for my cards, but I've never felt like I needed one. At the end of the day, though, it's doing whatever you feel like works for you.
  5. Personally, I don't cut the deck. I find that to be more symbolic or ritualistic than necessary and it isn't required to get me into the tarot reading headspace. I usually shuffle until I feel like the deck has aligned itself in the order where I should start reading and then draw cards off the top. I'll also use the bottom card as a Shadow card for any potential "unknown" factors for the reading.
  6. Personally, if the top of the card is facing to the left, I read that as a right side up card. If the top of the card is facing to the right, I read that as reversed. The 45-degree angle Barleywine mentioned is also a good idea when laying cards for a spread.
  7. I'm always a sucker for gilded decks, too. So I worked with the deck all week and used it for some Instagram challenges as well. Honestly, I think it reads incredibly well intuitively. I'm going to be diving into the Book of Maps (whew!) to get to know the deck on a more personal level, but I love the imagery of this deck and I'm quite happy with it.
  8. After using the deck exclusively for the week, I think that we've bonded. We're not quite on the same level as I was with my old deck, but I had that deck for nearly 5 years so it's going to take time to build that rapport again. The images still read very well intuitively, but I think it's a matter of getting over that mental block of the deck not being the exact same as the one I was previously using.
  9. I think this week I'm going to play with the Vitruvian Spirit Keeper's Tarot that just arrived in the mail. Using it exclusively for a week will allow me to become acquainted with the deck.
  10. Seconding this. I find I usually get the most important information I need this way as opposed to doing set spreads.
  11. I think this was the best book for starting out with the Thoth that I've come across: Understanding Aleister Crowley's Thoth Tarot by Lon Milo Duquette It makes it easy for beginners to understand and it is a great starting off point imo.
  12. Maybe it's just me, but I felt that the Thoth could be read fine intuitively as it could once you start learning about the esoteric layers of the deck. I dont see why you cant start with it. Along with myself, there are plenty of readers who started with the Thoth. Admittedly, I dont see why it's any more intimidating than any other tarot deck. A good deck should have multiple layers of symbolism, imo. That's how you get to know one another and grow with the deck. The RWS looks simpler perhaps, but it it also a layered deck once you really get into it.
  13. Another thing to consider is the publisher. I've seen Shadowscapes decks on eBay for cheaper, but these are printed by Chinese publishers who were granted the license from Llewellyn. So things like card stock, ink quality, etc will be different.
  14. I like tea much better than coffee, personally
