Before going into more detail about new tarot tips and teachings that I learned at RS09, I thought perhaps people might be interested in hearing a bit about my own tarot background and history. So in true self-centred blogger fashion, here's a five-part series on that very topic! As always, thanks for your patience.
My first tarot deck was, of course, the Rider-Waite-Smith deck. It's the standard deck that probably everyone first encounters. Someone gave it to me as a birthday present in the late 1970s or early 1980s, if I remember correctly. It came as a boxed set with 3 small paperback books which were extremely unhelpful, being basically just a list of contradictory and confusing keywords for each card. My sister and I tried to read for each other a few times and then gave it up. I didn't find the cards particularly attractive or intriguing. Clearly my tarot journey was off to a slow start.
