Tarot Thursday Three

I’m still catching up on my blog posts for #tarotthursdaythree. This is the post for January 12th, 2017. Questions by Beth (@greenwitch_oracle).

1. What do you do with a deck you don’t connect with?

The short answer is I trade them. But after reading Julia’s post, where she mentions not trading decks but just keeping them around, I’m starting to think that might not be such a bad idea. I, like many other tarot readers, have a slight problem with wanting all the decks. My wish list is long, and changes often. Every now and then I’ll go and weed out the decks I don’t feel too interested in anymore and and replace them with new decks I am interested in. I have many decks with which I have not given myself a real chance to connect. I would like to work with a deck for a month at least before deciding that I don’t connect with it.

2. How long do you give yourself to connect with a new deck?

Oops I kind of went into this answer above. I don’t have a set time to connect with decks, but I would like to give myself at least a month. Sometimes I buy decks with certain Instagram challenges in mind and that helps a lot to connect with a deck, or to know if we don’t connect.

3. What consecration ritual(s) do you use with new divination tools?

I don’t have any rituals, although I should. I started writing a little welcome letter/note to my decks and storing it in the box or bag with the cards, but I did not keep up with that. Some rituals I’ve heard about are looking through all the cards, picking out the ones you like best  and the ones you like least, and giving each individual card your own meaning. I’m looking forward to reading other’s rituals to get ideas from :).

  1. Gah! Yes!! The ever-growing wish list…… I feel ya hahaha. Using a deck for a month long challenge always helps me to connect with the deck. Sticking with the challenge is another question….

      Oh yeah, that’s another problem I have with the challenges, makes me think twice before joining, but I still do lol, even if it takes me 2 months!

      1. Hehe at least you actually finish 🙂 … unlike me haha.

  2. I love that idea of writing notes and keeping them in the bags with the cards. What a unique idea. I’m bad with keeping up with stuff too but I’m over beating myself up about it…Just because something worked for a bit, doesn’t mean we gotta do it forever! That’s my new mentality lol

      I like your mentality! I agree, if I ever feel like writing a note to another deck I will, but if I don’t I don’t worry too much about it. Thank you for stopping by!

  3. It certainly is pretty tricky with wanting new decks!!! It’s hard because even if I think I won’t really jive with one, it can end up becoming a special part of my collection. And on the contrary, sometimes I think I’ll enjoy a deck and when I get it I just don’t ever feel interested enough to read with it very often!

      Hi Olivia! That is so true, sometimes I’ll see a deck on Instagram and feel like I would really jive with it, but we won’t know for sure until we take it for a test run. Instagram definitely does not help with having self control and not buying all the decks! Thank you for stopping by!
