Oracle and tarot sets

Do we need 1 too many?

Lately I am beginning to think it feels like Imelda Marcos and her vast shoe collection.
It makes sense to have more than one pair: hygienic, last longer, matching accessories,.
Yet I favour one over the others, it may be worn out but comfy like a pair of leather gloves.

I love my feet and so my cards!

All began with my first oracle set:

The Fortune Teller’s Mah Jongg by Derek Walters.

144 cards!
Still my favourite.

The way cards are layed, the simbology, the detail.
I has taking me 2 decades? to move from this set to Waite set.
Somehow I was weary of the individual simbolism behind each card, and trying to memorize it’s meanings.
Feel more confident now, but like my first set, will take a time to master.
Own quite a few more sets, but when all will stop?

Hoarding in any form is part of us as human beings.

I have three tarot decks and an oracle card deck (and I just ordered this tarot deck because the images are amazing) – each deck for me has its own personality and energy to it and can read differently. Then some people collect tarot decks for the art! I don’t think I could have much more than I already do, though. That gets expensive!

I agree with your comment, then again I have to borrow a line from Pauline’s League of gentlemen british sitcom:

Don’t need friends, got pens…if they work you use them, if not, you chuck them!

Or, Prince Regent(Hugh Laurie) in Black Adder’s:

  • No matter how many socks I buy, never seem to have enough…:rofl::joy:

British humour at it’s best!
…,been too long in this Country, Sorry!

@basil i think you should get as many as you are compelled to buy. If they call to you you can’t pass them by, right? I have four Tarot decks and three Oracle sets. I think it is the same with books. I have purchased 4 this week. I have a number of eBooks but I’m old school, I like to feel the book in my hand as well. Two of the books are herb and herbal Magick related so they will be good resource books, the other two are about Wicca and should arrive today.

@MeganB the new deck looks amazing! I hope you connect to them and they provide the answers you seek.

Blessed be.

Should open a shop, this way I would try all the sets available.
All started like my cookery books, too many to count. Gave away and sold some, still plenty left.
My numerology app. says should channel my energies, and it’s right.
Got lots of projects but not in the mood for it.
I have a new tarot book, love the different approach on the cards and made a good start on my book of Shadows.
Herb & herbal magic?
Do tell, am interested!:pray:

Wiccan Herbal Magic by Stewart J White and The Herbal Apothecary by JJ Pursell. The Wiccan book is just shy of 80 pages and lists the basic herbs a Wiccan should have. The other book is 285 pages of 100 medicinal herbs. I thought it would be useful research book.

The bigger book arrived yesterday so I haven’t gone into it yet, but the smaller book is interesting and it has some simple spells included that might be worth trying.

I am definitely like this, too – the benefit of ebooks is that they don’t take up already limited space :sweat_smile:

I don’t have it but I’m adding it to my list of books to look into!

You have such a gorgeous collection, @Basil! :heart_eyes: Like @Kasandra, I’m also curious about the Dragon Oracle- it looks beautiful :dragon:

I’m another member of the you-can-never-have-too-many-decks club :laughing: It is an expensive collection to have, but if you have the funds and it brings you joy, I say treat yourself! :heart:

Thanks for sharing, Basil! :sparkles::flower_playing_cards:
