What are your favourite decks? Or: What are your decks of selection in observe, in addition to in principle? Why?
* I am fairly keen on the basic Marseille deck. It was my first deck, and the historicity, simplicity, the woodcut-style artwork, the virtually alien look to the figures in it and the non-unique Minor Arcana have a sure comfy attraction regardless of not really actually being my type in any respect.
* My primary deck that I am actually pleased with utilizing is the Tarot of the 1,001 Nights. I like the wealthy, detailed, intricate 1920s illustrations used for the playing cards, and I respect the tie to the sprawling narratives of the 1,001 Nights and Scheherezade’s tales. In addition to being an attractive, tasteful, and richly coloured and designed deck, I really actually like that the deck would not have apparent basic Tarot symbolism in any respect, weirdly sufficient. My private type of studying Tarot is to chill out my thoughts a bit of bit to get into the proper state of viewing issues, and searching on the playing cards is like visible solutions that I can use to offer language to the “narrative” of occasions, emotions, ideas, or potentialities in a studying. So, whereas this deck has been criticized for not having a lot in the way in which of Tarot symbolism, I prefer it: It is good for a unfastened, intuitive type of studying spreads the place you simply form of “get” a *narrative.*
