Day 14: Which tarot decks give you the most insight by way of the imagery and symbology of the cards rather than intuition or basic tarot knowledge – Elizabeth Harkin
I turn to the classics here: the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot and the Thoth Tarot. I don’t necessarily “like” the symbolism in these decks. The RWS deck is far more Christian in its orientation than I am, and…well, a great deal of the time, I’m not sure where the Thoth deck is even going. But for me to read using the imagery and symbology of the cards, a deck needs to have them in the first place, and both these decks exult in them. I respect these decks for that. Now, I don’t know as I get more from the imagery and the symbols than via my intuition or my grasp of the basic card meanings. They’re all mixed together for me.
Day 15: What is in your Tarot ‘to-go’ bag? Your Tarot travel bag. – Nya Thryce
Ooh, the prompt makes me think of an emergency tarot bag, packed and waiting by the front door, to be grabbed as I run out the door to a crisis. Except my life is not quite that interesting, and I don’t keep a bag ready to go. But when I do take tarot somewhere, it’s basically a tarot deck or two (lately, that would be the Sun and Moon Tarot and maybe the Happy Tarot) and a Lenormand deck (probably the Dondorf Lenormand). If I’m really prepared, I’ll throw in a notebook and pen as well, but I may just rely on getting a photo if I need a record of any reading.
