Let’s answer this question of whether you can only be gifted your first Tarot deck, or if you can buy your own Tarot cards. This question comes up a LOT.
“Don’t you have to be gifted your first Tarot deck?”
Here’s the answer:
NOOOOO you do NOT need to be gifted your first deck!!!
I get it, there’s a lot of mysticism about Tarot, and that’s cool. But Tarot is now, in many places, a readily available product.
While at one point it may have been more difficult to access a Tarot deck, that is no longer the case in many countries. And now with proliferation of internet access globally, even someone who can’t get a deck can study and learn about Tarot.
This doesn’t mean you can’t give or receive a gifted Tarot deck, of course!!! Any gift from the heart can be beautiful.
But you don’t have sit around and wait for someone to give you a Tarot deck to get started.
And you’re in perfectly good company too!
If I had waited to be gifted a deck, I wouldn’t have a single one!
The deck pictured here is Chakra Healing Tarot that I’ve created (and art by the amazing E.C. Mazur). It’s still available for preorder here.
