Choosing your tarot deck is pretty important. If you have no connection to it then it will not work for you. There are many times of decks that are out there now, it's quite amazing the choices that you can find now. As well as regular decks, oracle decks and even angel decks. I personally use several decks, standard ones, featuring anime, steampunk, fairies, dark fairies, round ones, kitsune oracle cards and regular playing cards.
First off you should pick ones that you have an interest in. Because they are all part of your personality if you aren't into ancient Egyptians then don't get an Egyptian deck. Pick something you love something that will help you connect more. Also decide what you like more a Rider Waite deck or the oracle style which can be very different. I choose to use both depending on the situation or if I want a different perspective.
When choosing a deck if you can at least go to a store and touch them this is really helpful. I've found that when I can touch them I get a light electrical energy a tingle if they are a set that I connect with. If I don't feel it then I don't even look further. Unfortunately, you can't do this when buying them online. That's why I say you need to pick a deck that you identify with. I've definitely have gotten a few duds buying ones online I thought I would like. They still work but I'm not as connected as my other decks. So do try to touch them when you can it'll save you a great deal of money.
Once you pick your deck go through them touching every single card connecting to it. Say a little prayer that you see the truth and that you are able to help yourself and others with what you see. At that point you are ready to begin. If your cards ever feel clogged like you're getting muddled information then hold them in your left hand and knock on them with your right to kick out the excess energy, then you go through them saying your prayer again so they're ready to go.
I do hope this helps anyone out there. And please feel free to ask me anything. Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org especially with any ideas for topics for the blog.
