Recommended Posts

Currently i am exploring the Tarot of the Spirit system through the book (have not yet recieved the cards) and am finding it very deep and rewarding: http://www.amazon.com/Tarot-Spirit-Pamela-Eakins/dp/0877287309/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1325712891&sr=1-1

 

The deck is expensive on amazon but cheap on her site. https://tarotofthespirit.com/TAROT_OF_THE_SPIRIT_SHOP.html

 

The 2 decks that i was drawn to most when i was looking for my deck was:

 

1. Tarot of the Spirit

2. The Haindl Tarot: http://www.amazon.com/Haindl-Tarot-Deck-Hermann/dp/0880794658/ref=pd_sim_b_1

 

Both came across as very powerful. But for me personally Tarot of the Spirit came across as feeling right for me.

 

-My 2 cents, Peace

A strange psychic (I think so) I once met explained about choosing Tarot. You basically have to feel drawn to a particular deck in her opinion. I think that's ok in theory but I suspect differing decks have had their symbols more or less translated/understood/interpreted over time. I suppose it would be like switching some lines in the hexagrams or twiddling with some meaning-correspondances. As far as I can tell, the 'Tarot' is heavily rooted in Western alchemy and so that would mean learning all of that field's related symbols. Massive undertaking IMO

 

The (very) few tarot-readers I've met were either heavily psychic and just using the cards between us to spark conversation and insight or they were 'by the book' manipulators who had gotten used to telling pretty similar 'whatever the client wants/needs to hear' stories.
