Choosing Your (Next) Deck & Curating Your Tarot Deck Collection

About Course

Are you struggling with picking the right deck, whether you're a new or seasoned Tarot and Oracle deck collector? Do you struggle with an overgrown collection or with guilt every time you make a new deck purchase? This course will explore what to consider when choosing a deck to add to a collection and how to make peace with the deck collecting phase we're experiencing in our lives.

Description

This course is for the new-to-Tarot folks, the seasoned folks, the collectors, AND the readers – there is literally something here for everyone. The main takeaway? Never buy a deck again that no longer resonates. No longer feel guilty about your collection, big or small. No more having to deal with a bunch of decks that just sit on the shelf. And, this is especially for those who are just starting out in their deck collecting journey – let’s take the guesswork out of getting started!

My 2020 Depth Year – where I refrained from buying new decks – was a huge teaching moment for me. I learned a lot about FOMO (fear of missing out), delayed gratification, and when it IS time to buy or replace a new deck. It is my hope that my observations and lessons will help others on their own deck collecting journey.

This course will save you from doing something as drastic as a whole depth year, like myself. Not everyone needs to full on abstain from deck purchases for a year, while others could use some abstinence. This course offers tools to help you cull and curate your collection, based on your own individual callings.

When I first sat down to create this course, I thought it would be a few videos focused on busting myths and offering deck collection tips. Soon it became abundantly clear many of us threw ourselves into deck collecting, without giving much thought or intention into what we were purchasing. As a result, some of us have collected so many decks, we can’t make heads or tails of what to do with our large hoard.

Some people don’t mind spending hundreds and thousands of dollars on collecting decks, but it is absolutely not necessary. This course will help us embrace the collection we already have, while helping others find their perfect deck when it’s time to add to their collection. It’s about curating a collection that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but is one that is a working body of tools for the readers, too.

For the seasoned collectors, this course will transform how you feel about your deck collection. For new collectors, you will curate a collection that is good for your soul, your budget, and your space.

Remember: Many considerations go into picking decks and the one(s) you choose today will influence what kind of readings you will perform, what kind of decks you will collect, and store on your shelves in the future – choose wisely!

Let’s get started, as we have a LOT to cover!

Myths Surrounding Deck Collecting?

What’s in a Deck Connection??

We go a little deeper into what's in a deck connection. How do we know when we've found a "soul" deck? We will also explore what happens when the search for the perfect deck connection turns into an unhealthy obsession.

What is a Deck Non-Negotiable??

It is time to get familiar with our deck non-negotiables by listing and knowing them, so when we see a new deck, we can quickly identify if this is one that we absolutely must have or one that can be passed over.

Compose Your Deck Collecting Philosophy?

We will draft our very own deck collecting philosophy and we will be able to collect by this very special promise to ourselves.
