When I get a new Tarot deck, I spend a lot of time touching them, shuffling them, and taking in the artwork and its energy. Each deck is different even if they are the same type of cards. In fact, there are differences between cards even when identical. I find that the only way to give an accurate reading when interpreting a Tarot spread is to understand the deck and how you, the reader, is connected to the deck. In essence, I interview my cards. Just like one would interview a new employee for a job, I ask my Tarot deck questions to ensure that we are the right fit for each other. Doing so is a powerful way to learn about the cards and to discover their collective power and purpose.
Most recently, I interviewed my Tarot Nefertari Deck. I absolutely adore this deck, with its gold-leaf backing and beautiful interpretation of Egyptian themes. From the moment I touched these cards, I knew that they were meant to be in my regular rotation. In fact, purchasing these is what convinced me to offer my Empowerment Tarot sessions to the public. Before purchasing this deck, I only interpreted cards for myself and friends. But Tarot Nefertari has helped me to understand what I am supposed to be doing in life. They have reminded me that my intuition and my ability to understand human behavior and motivation are my greatest assets.
