31 Days of Tarot 2019: Days 10 and 11

Posted on: January 25, 2019


Day 10: Tarot decks you want to work more with in 2019.

Day 11: Oracle decks you want to work with more in 2019.


These two prompts for me tend to be tricky because I am not good at planning for using decks too far ahead. As I mentioned in this prompt back in 2018, unlike many Tarotistas I am not good at using multiple decks at the same time. I keep a Tarot deck and an oracle deck in my daily rotation.

I did look at what I wrote last year. I listed three decks in Tarot, and I did work with two of them for a good amount of time: The Santa Muerte Tarot (link to Llewellyn) and the Gaian Tarot (link to my review of the deck). I will likely keep working with these in and out in 2019.

In oracle, of the three I listed in 2018, Wisdom of the Oracle (Link to Aeclectic) deck was the one used the most. This is one I will likely keep using in 2019.

Having said all that, here are some possibilities for 2019 in addition to ones I am using already.

In Tarot decks:

  • Thelema Tarot (link to Aeclectic).
  • Arcanum Tarot (link to Llewellyn). By the same author of the Thelema Tarot.
  • Ludy Lescot Tarot (link to Aeclectic).
  • From 2018: Sherlock Holmes Tarot and the Necronomicon Tarot (links to Aeclectic). I also want to re-read Sherlock Holmes tales and H.P. Lovecraft works. In addition, I recently got Donald Tyson’ two books on the Necronomicon, and I want to read them. So working with these two decks is more a long term goal than just for 2019.

In oracle decks:

  • Enchanted Map Oracle (link to Aeclectic). A favorite that I’d like to go back to sometime.
  • Santa Muerte Oracle (link to Llewellyn). I have the Tarot deck and I like it, so now I recently got the oracle. I hope to give the oracle a good go in 2019.
  • In long term: Faery Lenormand and Gilded Reverie Lenormand (links to Aeclectic). I had no interest or intention to learn Lenormand right away. However, I saw the art for the Faery Lenormand, fell in love with it, and when I saw a good deal bought it along with the Gilded Reverie Lenormand. For the Faery Lenormand, I also liked Davide Corsi did art for it (he did the Vampires Tarot of the Eternal Night, link to my review). I got the Gilded Reverie Lenormand because it is by Ciro Marchetti. Under my personal rule of buying decks for use, it means I need to work on this. I subscribed to a small set of e-mail Lenormand lessons, and I got a book on the subject. This is a new learning experience for me. We’ll see how it goes.
