I tried it once, and was really impressed, but it fell by the wayside, because I borrowed my kids' deck, and just haven't gotten around to getting my own. I did recently get a new deck called the Illuminated Tarot, which illustrates tarot into these gigantic playing cards. It has its pros and cons.

I haven't been spending much time with my tarot deck lately:( although I did sit with them just tonight and spent about 30mins just handling the deck before shuffling and making my spread.
I have recently been researching a career with the fire department and training to fight wildfires, that being said I made the question be revolving around my pursuing that and I did a 10 card spread, 5 were pentacles and 3 were wands. The others were major arcana.
Ended up getting a pretty good feeling afterwards in favor of pursuing this career.
Anyways mainly just wanted to say how much I missed working with my deck.

I finally got around to grabbing a cheap playing card deck (I was previously using my kids' deck :D ). I'm really enjoying it. I've been following my intuition, and also watching Lucky Lynx on youtube when I get the chance. It's a fun, no pressure method of divination, and I can see it becoming a staple. Also, I don't know why, but I feel as though learning/practicing on playing cards, has made me suddenly more able to read my marseilles tarot deck more easily. I was really struggling with connecting with it, before that. I can definitely feel the magic in the playing cards.

I used too before tarot but I've had a bit of a dodgy past with them my decks would either be destroyed or vanish within thin air and not ever seen again.
Till Christmas time I gotten my very first Tarot deck which was Essential Tarot by Mary Hanson-Roberts

I love cartomancy, I've read tarot for years and only in the last couple have I read with playing cards regularly. I found it hard to find my eureka moment with them, but when I did find a relationship and meanings I liked, I fell in love with it! I still prefer traditional style decks as I do in tarot, especially the Russian sets from a friend. There's so many traditional spreads too, which I learned from a friend The Knave of Swords on YouTube. Did you curate your own system of meanings?

I made these little flash cards a while ago for a cartomancy series I wrote for a blog. These are just my general keywords but thought they might be useful to someone interested in trying the system out.
