Things to consider when buying a new deck

Previous | Master List | Next

It is the little things in life that bring me joy. One of those things is a new deck! I love buying a new deck and exploring that deck's interpretation and perspective on tarot. Like a new car, a new deck also has a “new deck smell” which I (and other readers do) must sniff my new deck. The smell of freshly sealed ink on paper is just heavenly, please comment if you agree.

2015 was a busy deck buying year for me and before the year ends I will have one more for the collection, the rare “J.K Waite Tarot”. But when and why do I buy a new deck? I mainly like to collect decks. I also like to have different decks mainly to see how each artist portrays the cards so I may discover new nuances to the cards.

In order for a deck to be worthy of my consideration is must meet some of the following requirements:

It came! And I love it love it!!! This will be my new deck for regular readings for sure. Pops! #tarot #tarotreadersofinstagram #tarotcards

What do I do with a new deck? I do not do any rituals; I do not cleanse or bless my decks. Not really my style. Since I often do video reviews on YouTube for decks I often will not shuffle the deck until I records the deck on film. Until then I go through the images and look at each card evaluating the images. I make mental notes of what I think of the images, the cardstock, the boxing and so forth. I will then make the video and after shuffle the deck. I will shuffle the deck thoroughly for a while until the cards and mixed up well.  I will then do a reading to test the cards and see if I connect with them and if they can perform well for me.

That is what I do with my new decks!
