'Lo all,

I agree with Jade about consistency, and think it is important.

With my first deck, acquired back in the days when there were not many decks to choose from, the Aquarian deck, the book I had recommended using reversed cards. So I always did.

Then I was given the Robin Wood deck, and she doesn't use reversed cards, saying in her book, "I think there are enough cards in the deck to describe anything; and reversed cards are simply unnecessarily confusing." So, with her deck, I don't use them.

Now, I have a third deck, the World Spirit, and in the book it says, "We have chosen not to include reversed. Instead, we present a continuum, including the gifts and the lessons as well as the challenges and shadows of each card." Okay.

Actually have a fourth deck, my "collector's deck, that I can't read with. It is the Wheel of Change deck, and if I did read with it, Alexandra Genetti doesn't use reversed cards either.

So, I am always consistent, according to the deck I use. Thus, I turn the cards, like the pages of a book to read the story.
