Yes or no is a series where I’m asking yes or no on a certain tarot or other woo related topics. I’m giving my take in this post. Give me yours in the comments below.
Interviewing a tarot deck was one of the first things that I learned about when I first got into tarot. I was searching blogs looking for decks that I thought looked cool when I stumbled upon this idea in a post reviewing a certain tarot deck. It’s not a new idea by any means and a lot of people don’t agree with it and think that cardstock doesn’t have a personality. While I can see thier point, I like interviewing my tarot decks because I look at each deck having a certain dialect. They all will deliver a message from a higher power but the delivery of that message may change based on the deck. For example, my Spirit Keeper’s Tarot deck delivers the universe’s message like a no nonsense mentor and my Spellcaster’s Tarot deck is such a matchmaker.
If you’ve never interviewed a tarot deck maybe try it today with one of your favorite decks and see if you can learn something new about it. Dont overthink this. Interviewing a tarot deck is a fun icebreaker for you and the deck to build a connection. I like making the first reading with a tarot deck be about the tarot deck. In a way it’s to show respect to the creator of said deck who put in weeks, months, maybe years to create something for us all to use.
The spread below is my personal spread to interview a new deck. You can use this one or search Pinterest for more tarot spreads like this.
We all know how strong opinions on things like this can be so please, if you do comment I have 2 rules: 1. Keep it clean 2. Don’t be mean.
