It’s time to continue our Q & A series about the tools and processes I use.
Which decks do you use most often in your work, and why?”
BF, Tampa, FL, U.S.A.“
Good question, BF. At the time of writing this response, I’m aware that over the past few months, the packs of cards I’ve employed most often have been:
- Camoin-Jodorowsky version of the Tarot de Marseille
- Gaian Tarot
- Medicine Woman Tarot
- Morgan-Greer Tarot
- Motherpeace Tarot
- Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot
- Thoth Tarot
- Voyager Tarot
- Oracle of Initiation (a non-tarot deck)
Why? Two possible reasons. Either they’re tried-and-true, well-seasoned, and respected by many in the tarot community, especially with regard to RWS, Thoth, Morgan-Greer, and TdM, or they symbolise a way of being that’s a sustainable, life-affirming, creative alternative to the consensus reality our culture has built for itself up to this point in history, especially with regard to the Gaian, Medicine Woman, Motherpeace, Voyager, and Initiation cards. In some cases, the choice of deck has been because a Skype or phone client has that deck on their end, so that’s what we use. When using the cards for my personal insight, growth, and strategising, these decks have been conveniently to hand in the room. There are, of course, exceptions to the above list, especially if I want to break out of my habitual thinking. I hope this answer helps.
