Inaugural Intensive Deck Study (IDS) Support Thread


Here we are - the official IDS support and discussion thread! Welcome to all, welcome! The original thread has details of the evolution of this gathering.

If anyone else wants to join in, you're more than welcome, or if existing participants have changes to their deck or rules, could you please PM me as well/instead of posting here? I'm terrified I'm going to miss someone's post

Guidelines

1. Start date at the Equinox, which is apparently the 19th of March (although I realise that some people have started theirs already and others are away on holidays or suchlike over that day and will be joining us later). At this stage the "official" end date is 20th of June, but everyone is free to continue as long as they like, of course! But we are all aiming at three months to begin with.

2. Only one deck should be used for readings (at all, including reading for others), study, journalling, idle flicking-through, mindless shuffling, etc.

3. The only time you pick up another deck is a new arrival from an order, and only for the purposes of checking quality and completeness. Then put it away and forget about it.

4. Reading material including companion books and non-card-specific texts (eg. 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card) are allowed, unless a participant chooses to eliminate them for him/herself.

5. Handle your deck every day, even if you don't read with it or actually study any of the cards. Physical comfort with the cards is important to knowing a deck.

6. Journal with the deck at least once a week, if not more often. Use the threads for the group to help motivate you and encourage you to delve further into the symbolism and meaning of the cards.

Feel free to introduce yourself with your *pledge* post, or not, as you wish.

We are in illustrious company here - so many excited, committed people joined in the desire to devote time to one deck so that they can learn it (and themselves as readers) better. I hope this will be a great experience for us all, and that we can support each other and add to it through the group medium.
