Wanted to share my Tarot deck I’ve had for a month now. I was in the shop a good 30 minutes wandering around the various crystals, dried herbs, books and everything and kept coming back to the tarot card case and this particular deck. I’m not sure why but I went from looking at their Poe Tarot deck online ( big fan of Poe, me) to going to the brick and mortar shop and being strongly drawn to this deck.
According to the booklet, this is a deck for shadow work. I had no idea when I purchased it.
Not too long before I decided that I wanted get a tarot deck, I was doing some research here and I discovered shadow work and felt that was something I’d like to explore more. When I found out this was a shadow work deck I was elated! Then I began to wonder if that was the reason I kept coming back to this particular deck even though I wasn’t aware of it being designed for shadow work? I’m comfortable with this deck which is something I think I could only say here and be completely understood.
My questions are this: Can a tarot deck be that in your face? That specifically connected to you from the get go? I’m actively studying and reading on the matter for a few weeks but haven’t found anything specific on deck connections or things like that.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post!
Congrats on your new deck, @Mia.1- it sounds like you found one that feels like home to you. That’s always an amazing feeling to “click” with your tarot- I think you are going to get some very heartfelt and resonating readings with such a deck!
Shadow work can be difficult, but it does lead to some wonderful and freeing results. I wish you all the best with it- just a loving reminder to please make some time post-shadow work to focus on your self-care!
Enjoy your new tarot cards and your shadow work- much love and blessed be!
Short answer? Yes, yes they can. As @christina4 said, sometimes our intuition is so spot on that we don’t realize it until way later.
I’m glad you found a deck that works well for what you need! And as @TheTravelWitch_Bry said, please remember to take some time after shadow work to care for yourself and lean on your support system shadow work can be difficult emotionally sometimes and it is important to take care of yourself, too!
