Who, me? Obsessed much? Nooooo.... ;) *whistles*

Anyone read any other good books on Tarot, lately? :D I am working on recreating my collection over here and so I'm born to shop, at the moment.

I'm just wondering if anyone can think of a "darker" deck ... not pink and fluffy .. hehe .. and also I'm curious as to what decks everyone here uses ...


There are quite a few I could recommend:

Thoth
Gothic
Necronomicon
Fantastical Tarot
Deviant Moon Tarot
Bohemian Gothic

... and many more.

The deck I actually have that gut feeling for is rare and out of print in the US .. grrrrr .. fundies ruining my chances of getting this deck at a decent price .... :argg:


Which deck did you desire?

The last thing I would like to know as well is ( and this might be off topic ) what might yall suggest for guided meditation books or CD's as I am having a really tough time doing such.


There is a book by Pete Jennings, called "Pathworkings". He is heathen, so will be different from most guided meditation books. As to CDs, to be fair, I have yet to find one that I like. I tend to print off meditations from the internet (some of which use tarot cards) and then get my friend to record them onto a CD or tape for me. That way I get what I want without the disturbance of hearing my own voice.

I have a question about my Tarot cards. Well more on how to care for them. I have read that the cards should be kept in a satchel or a box or something. I think I know the answer to this but is there anything that is better then the other to hold my cards in?


I used to keep mine in silk and then a wooden box for storage. Now, I have a silk and then place them in a silk purse. This works best as they are more portable. And I do have a reason to be careful as my deck is OOP and expensive. The box set they came in is put aside in storage (carefully) as a legacy to my beneficiaries.

One of the few books I've kept on tarot is Joan Bunning's Learning the Tarot - it got me started and I'd recommend it to any beginner. Other than that, I've found I gain more insight in doing readings for querents and guided meditations with the cards than from books, so I gave up reading on tarot, which does mean I have a lot of half read tomes in my library. :rofl:
