How could i find the right tarot, the one i am meant to be with?
I only have one Deck, and not all that much experience. So my experience with this may be different to others.
Before you look for a Deck, there are some things you need to figure out;
What do you want from your Deck?
Do you want something dark and gritty? Something pretty and light? Something cosmic? Something generic?
What is your budget for a Deck?
Decks can range from £5 to £500. I’m not even joking. I’m fairly certain you could find Decks even more expensive. There are a lot of sought-after artists, sets, etc.
Try to research Decks only within your budget. Don’t fall in love with a deck that’s going to cost £50 when you’ve only got £10 set aside.
Do you follow a particular path/keep under a label?
If you choose something that vibes with your aesthetic, or craft, or whatever else; you’re going to have more success. If you’re a green witch, for example, the Badgers Forest Tarot might suit you best.
Are you new to Tarot/Divination?
This isn’t as important, it’s more a safe-guarding, and something a cheapskate like me kept in mind. Everyone starts somewhere, and you shouldn’t not do it just because you’re new! This is again about cost!
There’s no point in purchasing a £50 deck, even if you absolutely love it; because you may find that it’s not actually something you enjoy in practice! If that’s the case, it’s totally fine; but imagine how bummed you’ll be if you spend all that money to not actually enjoy something.
Have a look at this site and just mooch around there/the internet/your local witchy shop/book stores until you find something you like. Research whatever it is (especially if you’re buying online), and make sure it fits the above criteria.
It’s all about following your intuition; when you see a Deck that makes your heart go !!!!, you’ve probably found the right one. If you go !!!!? then give it a go, still. When you know, you know. But it’s not all plain sailing. It’s like introducing a pet in to your life, there’s always that weird adjustment period where you’re both a little uncertain until you settle with each other.
The worst thing that happens is you’ve spent a little bit of money on something you can’t use; but you could either up-cycle it (turn it into a picture backing or something), gift it, or donate it to a charity shop. You could even sell it on, I know many witches would not be upset with buying a second-hand Deck, especially if they’ve never actually been “used”.
I know @cosmic-witch has spent time actually crafting a tarot deck (Edit: So it’s an Oracle deck! But it’s still a divination Deck and is frankly gorgeous (What’s the difference?)) as have many others, whether they’re Photoshopped beauties or scrapbooking cuties!; so that’s always an option if you’re crafty! You’re bound to be attuned to something you create yourself, you can literally pour your energies into it as you create it.
Remember, witchcraft is a journey. It’s about learning, growing, and exploring. So just do you; and have fun with it!
