That is what happened to me also! LOL I was sure that while I was drawn to all the decks that I bought.. I thought.. what are the odds that I'm actually going to like all of them. I honestly do!

What decks did you buy?


I bought several a couple of years ago and while I used them every now and then.. I really didn't like them. They aren't bad decks.. I just feel like we don't connect. These new decks are really inspiring and I just love them. I am enjoying my "illness" as well. Well.. as long as I love and will use the decks. lol


I'm thinking of getting another deck of the Everyday Witch Tarot and Sun and Moon Tarot as I really like both of those. The 78 Tarot Nautical is gorgeous and it gives great readings! I was blessed with a second deck, so I have as a back up. I felt like I won the lottery that day. The owner is such an amazing and sweet person!


Brightest Blessings!

I think I figured out the first bug bite was when you started out, you were searching for the perfect deck you knew you were going to connect with. What I have found out, for me any way, is to get a deck you don't think you'll like. In a strange way it's working out for methat way. The Everyday Witch was one of the decks I bought and although I new I would probably like it, it looked so young girlie high school deck. I'm a ,62 yr old man! It's a great deck so easy to read. Everytime I use it I feel I have to apologize for using it. LOL.

I was never a big fan of dark decks. Just knew I wouldn't like something like that. I got the Night Sun Tarot, I can't believe I like it. The ghost tarot. I'm just now started working with it. And of all things the Ludy Lescot deck? I love that deck. I can't wait to take a sharpie to the edges. By the way, The Steampunk by Barbara Moore I had that for 3 years and it just clicked one day and I love it.

The Mystical Tarot. The AfterTarot, Tabula Mundi I love, Navigator s of the Mystic Sea, haven't looked at that too much yet. Tarot of the Holy Light. I just think it's beautiful but I really had to force myself to use it and like it. Now I do.. LoL. And the Marseille Cat Tarot. Everyday Witch. So I'm just having a good ole time! 😉

This is a dangerous thread ... I think I've added at least 6 more decks to my wish-list ...

So many great decks, so little money ...

You made my day, magicjack! I think that is awesome that you like that deck! I am female and felt the same way at first about the Everyday Witch Tarot. I also thought I might not click with it. It came and I don't know.. I just love it! lol It is definitely my favorite go to deck. The only card that I wish was different is the Page of Cups in that deck. It just doesn't feel or look right to me. Otherwise, I do like the other 77 cards. lol

It sounds like you have a lot of great decks to look through and try out. I usually get the exact same type of decks, but this time I wanted some different ones like you. Not really dark, but different type of art, etc. I have not been disappointed.

The 78 Tarot Nautical {Tarot of Water} is one of those decks that I wouldn't have normally purchased. It has 78 cards by 78 different artists. I wasn't sure that I could read with a deck like that. Kayti did an awesome job of getting a common theme going and I guess each artist wrote up a summary of what their card means. So this was my first Collaborative Deck, but definitely not my last one. I'm glad I took the plunge to get that gorgeous deck. Love the readings it gives. It is now my personal reading deck. {I'm greedy with it} LOL


Thank you so much for responding and sharing your Tarot Bug purchases! I love when people share and chat. {Yes...I'm like this in real life} LOL


Hugs,

The Camelot Oracle grabbed me by the nose as I was cruising the bookshelves, and my long-desired Cruel Thing came from downrightspooky.

Those sound awesome! Make sure to let us know what you think about them. I don't think I have heard of the Camelot Oracle, but it sounds pretty cool!

I think I've been cured of this disease for the time being. Amazingly it has stopped! The wanting and needing has gone away. I'm sure I will be bitten again in the future but right now I have plenty of decks to keep me busy until my next infection.

You know... I was feeling the exact same way. I feel like all the decks that I "needed" are now here at their new home. Now I just need to make time to use and enjoy them. I may start a reading thread tomorrow during the day to practice with some of them.

We are cured! Well...at least for now! LOL

Sometimes it bites just when you least expect it, so be careful folks, and always keep the bug spray on hand.
