Three Favorite Tarot Card Decks for Psychic Readings
Not long after starting my journey as a psychic medium, I set about purchasing my first deck of Tarot/Oracle cards to use in my readings sessions.
At the time, I had no idea there were literally thousands of decks available to purchase online. I had no idea what to choose or even how to select the correct deck, so I began researching and quickly realized, there is no right or wrong decks, you simply go with what you're drawn to, almost as if the deck chooses you.
For me, I tend to gravitate towards cards with lots of bright, inspiring colors, large amounts of detail and beautiful illustrations. So after seeing and using many decks over the years, below is a list of my three personal favorites that I still use daily.
#1 Goddess Power - by Collette Baron Reid
The illustrations of these goddesses are so powerful. Their eyes gleam, almost magically off each Tarot card.
My first experience with a goddess was during a group mediation circle. I had a vision come to me of a blue-skinned woman with multiple arms. I didn't know who she was, I had never seen anything like it in my life, but I knew I desperately needed to learn more. So like we all do these days, I started googling! I soon found that the vision I had was Goddess Kali. Goddess Kali is known as one of the fiercest, strongest, and most complex deities in all of Hinduism. She's associated with death, violence, time, motherly love, cosmic knowledge, sexuality, fertility, and feminine power. I was dealing with a very tough parenting situation at the time and knowing she was present gave me such strength and confidence moving forward.
I delight in the look on my client's face when a goddess card is pulled from the deck that is directly linked to something they are currently struggling with at the time. It gives them a boost in power and courage, knowing how supported they are by the universe and these incredible goddesses.
This deck comes with 52 beautiful cards and a guidebook with a detailed description of each card.
#2 The Spirit Animal Oracle - by Collette Baron Reid
This was the first deck of Tarot cards I ever purchased, and to this very day is still one of my absolute favorites.
I am such an animal lover, so I enjoyed using Animal symbolism within my craft. I often get animal spirits coming to visit during my psychic reading sessions. The illustrations on these cards are just so beautiful, and all have so much hidden detail. I use my external Clairvoyance to see things within the cards that relate to my client on a psychic level.
This set holds 68 cards and comes with a detailed guidebook.
#3 The Everyday Witch Oracle - by Deborah Blake
This set is entirely different from the other two listed. It has a much more lighthearted feel to it, with whimsical yet uplifting illustrations that are almost cartoonish. The deck consists of 40 inspiring cards, and the guidebook provides an explanation of each card in three different sections.
But the thing I love most about this deck is the magic section. This magic section provides instructions for simple rituals that can be performed easily by anyone who selects a card, and it gives them a psychical task to take away with them to complete.
For example, if you pull the Prosperity and Abundance card, there are instructions to take a coin, hold the coin, close your eyes and think about the abundance you would like to receive, send the desire out into the universe, and the coin. Bury it in your front garden, give the soil a little pat and do all you can to make your wishes for prosperity come true, knowing you have given these plans a little magic boost. I particularly like this idea, as it empowers people to do something for themselves.
In summary, whilst the above sets are my three personal favorites; selecting Tarot, or Oracle cards really just comes down to personal preference. I've never come across a set that I didn't like, but you can't have them all.
Browse online and choose a deck that speaks to you. Practice using your external Clairvoyance and see what jumps out at you from the cards.
It's amazing what you can pick up within the beautiful drawings themselves.
