Ok so, my dad's the best 💙 this evening has been complete crap, I got into it with my mom, and just when I was seriously feeling like I was going off the rails, he called me. It wasn't much, but it was what I needed and everything feels kind of okay again. Enough that I'm gonna pull myself together, put the makeup back on that I cried off earlier, and go out tonight like I planned. Screw the drama 😎
Bless you!! I bet you are relieved.
I've actually experienced what you've described quite a few times in my life. With me it must be caused by swollen sinuses, because whenever my doctor puts me on Prednisone, I start sneezing again within a day or two.
Oh yeah, absolutely! It's actually the deck that should pick you. You'll know which one is right when you see it. I thought about buying one of the simpler decks for starters, a cheap(ish) one with very clear and symbolic images. The Rider-Waite deck is the one most modern decks are based on, so I was thinking about that one. But I didn't feel a connection to it, so I looked around until I found the Thelema deck, and I was just smitten. I loved it, so I ordered it online. And when I got it delivered and took it out for the first time, the energies were just crackling! It was so loaded with energies that my fingers started tingling! I've always believed that people who know what they're doing absolutely can read energies through cards, but I never thought I'd be able to feel it so clearly. It took a while for it to get tuned into my own energies, because mine aren't sparkling like that, but I feel like I'm finally in sync with it. It's meditation in its own way to just shuffle the cards. I'm planning on buying the Steampunk Tarot as well, when I can. And I'm aching to get the Arcanum Tarot deck too, but it has similar energies to Thelema and I want one with a slightly different type of energy so I can pick the deck that best fits the reading I want to do.
I've read books on Tarot reading, but to be honest, I've learned way more from watching Tarot readers on Youtube. Readings by The Empress was the first channel I started following, so I'm partial to her way of reading the cards, but I also follow a whole ton of other readers as well. And in the end, it's between you and your deck. You kind of develop your own language. Aaaaaand I'm gonna stop hogging the thread now!
