First off, check out my Facebook page White Rabbit Tarot for my daily card draw. I will use different decks and today is Radiant Rider-Waite, and the card is the 4 of Cups. The man sitting under the tree in the card has 4 golden cups around him, but clearly he's not seeing them because he's caught up in a funk, like a Monday morning blues sort of thing. Message is to keep your eyes open for unexpected opportunities to come your way today. If you're not paying attention you could easily miss them.
Next I want to talk a little about tarot art and decks. I've already given my glowing review of the new Chrysalis Tarot. For me, it was love at first sight and somehow I thought my friend Eloise (also a tarot consultant) would fall as hard as I had when I showed her the deck today. Well, though she liked it overall, she wasn't smitten. She could see the deck as a nice acquaintance perhaps, but not as a relationship. Though she commented positively on the number of the card depictions, she mentioned overall the deck felt too "psychedelic" with its bright colors everywhere. For me the bright colors are exactly part of what I love about the deck. So, in short, art, and tarot decks, are certainly a subjective thing, a matter of personal taste.
There are many more decks out there that I don't resonate with at all than ones that I do. In fact, it's almost an exception when I do find a new deck that makes me jump up and down. So, the motto here is - when choosing a tarot deck, go for one that really appeals to you - one with imagery that pulls you in and gets you excited and even brightens your day. Never mind what someone else tells you. If you love the deck, you'll want to use it and you'll read well. If it's flat for you, you'll probably find it gathering dust on your shelf in no time at all.
