I’ve been thinking of beginning a project that I’m hoping will both help my personal spiritual goals and possibly be useful to others down the road….
A personal tarot deck!
Now, why would I go and do something so time consuming when there are so many decks already available out there? Well, it’s personal. 🙂
See, I already own several physical decks, several digital decks, and also visit several online reading sites on a regular basis to help me with a variety of…quests, shall we call them? I’m getting much better at hearing my guides on a more direct basis, but I have a very far way yet to go. Thus, I use my various decks frequently to help tune in to their messages.
No, I’m not OCD or in need of twenty different opinions in order to make a decision. The fact is, unfortunately, none of the decks I have provide symbolism for the guidance I need that will be meaningful enough to me to feel confident in what I think is being communicated. It’s not the fault of the decks; I just don’t connect with their intentions and further don’t think purchasing dozens of decks until I find the right one(s) is financially practical.
I see the creation of a tarot deck as something I can infuse with everything I need to have the communication tools I need when seeking advice and guidance; things that would resonate with me personally such as key words, key symbols, yes/no type certainties, and so forth. I wouldn’t just know the story behind the creation of the deck, I would be the author of that story.
I’d also be able to share the entire story with anyone that wished to use the deck themselves, a resource that I’ve found is often not the case with many/most of the decks out there. I keep finding that either the deck doesn’t speak to me and there’s plenty of information available, or I love the art and the book isn’t even available in English or something equally unsatisfying for my curiosity.
Therefore, I shall create a personal tarot deck!
Photoshop, sketching, and photography hobby-ism combined with the printing resources these days…why not?
Just wanted to share my vision. 🙂
