How I Choose a Deck (NSFW)

Hola! I’m so jittery from excitement over my FIRST LAUNCH of my BDAY PACKAGE DEAL for my oracle/tarot readings! Or, maybe, I’ve had too much coffee this morning…or maybe so much good is happening in my life right now that I’m just electric. Or tomorrow’s my birthday. Or ALL OF THE THINGS!!

Either way, I thought I’d push the pause button on getting ready for the launch to bring you: How I Choose a Tarot or Oracle Deck. You can read about what decks I have to choose from here.

So, here goes.

Honestly, a lot of the choosing I do is purely based off of intuition and gut feeling. I have a situation or a specific question I would like some insight on, and I go with the deck that feels the best. If you were to ask me for a reading, but didn’t have a specific deck in mind, I would usually ask what type of topic or question you have, and go from there. Sometimes, if I’m reading for my friends, I just dive right in with the deck that feels the best for their situation at the moment.

Here is what I tend to do beyond that.

If I’ve got a sensitive question, or a friend that isn’t into divination or is really vulnerable right now, I use the Archangel Oracle Deck. These cards are really great at giving a gentle push in the right direction, and are like the best friend that knows what to say to help you on your way.

Sorry, guys, can’t seem to get this to show up as a landscape picture. Bummer.

If I’ve got a question regarding relationships or love life, I go to the Psychic Tarot for the Heart Oracle Deck. That’s what these cards were programmed for, and they’re great at fostering self-love, too.

For a look inward, or spiritual retreat, I either choose the Heart of Faerie Oracle or the Enchanted Map Oracle.

Now, on to the tarot decks…

If I want a straightforward and honest answer, I go to the Tarot of the Elves. Not a lot of people can handle the artwork of these cards, however, so be aware that they may not always appear friendly. These cards will help in their own way, so I am comfortable enough to have them available for friends and customers alike.

For female empowerment, or to get in touch with one’s inner goddess, I suggest the Motherpeace Round Tarot Deck. This is also a great deck when it comes to community circles.

The Circle of Life Tarot Deck is a great deck for a unique perspective. The artwork tends to make one think about life in a different way, and gives great advice that makes one look at the bigger picture of things.

The Gateway to the Divine Tarot has a fresh and crisp look to it, as well, and takes one on a journey to greater understanding. I use this deck when I need to ask on practical matters like career or finances, but it would also be a great choice if you simply like this kind of artwork.

Finally, the Mystic Dreamer Tarot Deck is a great all-around choice, and has softer artwork and a gentle personality, great enough for a first-time reader. This is the deck that serves as my go-to for whenever I’m not quite sure what deck to use, and is great for any topic or question.

So, there you have it! Please take your time when choosing a question for each reading. The cards will be able to tap into what you’re truly asking, so make sure you know the difference between what you want to hear and what you need to hear, as well!

I hope to see you all there for my launch! Keep an eye open on my Etsy shop all weekend for the official launch of the product (tonight? tomorrow morning?) at 12:01 AM EST for the oracle and tarot package deal. Deal is over at 11:59 PM EST on Sunday, Feb 28th.

With love and excitement,
