When choosing a tarot deck to purchase, I have been known to be a tad bit picky. There are a few cards that simply have to sing to me before I can give them a home. These cards hold a little bit of special magic to me and so if a deck doesn’t depict them just right then I may be turned off the deck altogether. I have made exceptions in the past for other cards, however it’s not that often.
The Moon has to have a bit of mystery to it with the moon itself being the brightest thing you see, either visually or intuitively.
The Magician has to have a certain charm and cleverness about him. He has to seem like he knows what he is doing! It is a card that I’ve been compared to by a favorite reader of mine so it holds a special place in my heart.
The Sun has to bring a smile to my face and make me feel like there is warmth and brightness within it.
The Page of Cups is important since it’s the card I’ve used as a signifier for many years now. It’s essentially me in essence, so it has to depict what I feel I am. I’m the cat that is chatting it up with a fish, I am the sea lion surfing in the waves, I am the little baby swan imagining my shadow to be more beautiful than what it simply is.
If I can’t get a feeling off a card, it’s going to be very hard to read with it in the long run. This is why finding those key cards is so important to me.
