My Deck Deciding Tarot Cards

Whenever I like a tarot deck, enough to consider getting it, I have a set of go to cards that help me to make the decision whether it’s a deck I want invite into my life. Though it’s not a hard and fast rule, I follow it most of the time as it helps to culled my obsession over tarot decks.

Here are the cards I look for in the new deck that help me to make the decision:

Major Arcana: The Fool (I don’t like decks where it looks like The Fool is deliberately falling off the cliff), Strength (it’s the number 8 – my fave number. Also it’s strength/power – something I gratify towards), The Hermit (ultimate Virgo card), The Hanged Man (my tarot birth card), The Tower (my fave “bad card”) and The Star (the wish card).

Minor Arcana: Eight of Wands in the Wands suits (travel card), Ten of Cups in the Cups suits (my idea of contentment), Six of Swords in the Swords suits (the ultimate healing card) and Nine of Pentacles in the Pentacles suits (the energy I wish to emulate in life. My dream state of life).

Court Cards: I don’t rely on court cards to decide whether to get a tarot deck or not, but sometimes, I look at their Queens. Even then, it’s only the Queen of Wands (my fave among the four Queens) and on rarer occasion, the Queen of Swords (the Queen I relate the most with).

The Cyclical Nature of Six of Pentacles

All the sixes in tarot possesses healing energy imbued within them.

Although not presented as strongly as it’s in the Six of Swords, the Six of Pentacles also offers this energy through giving and receiving. It’s also a card that I have always been comfortable with. I was taught to not tie my self-value on either asking for or extending my hand to help. That one is no better than another—two-sided of the same coin, if you will.

But I am not a big fan of the classic portrayal of the Six of Pentacles. I always have a hard time processing the image of the people asking for help positioned lower and on bended knees. It feels like lacking the cyclic giving and receiving parts of life.

Recently I browsed the internet and found that on the Fifth Spirit Tarot deck the Six of Pentacles. I absolutely love it. Depicted as six things floating in the air. Below those items, a donation box with the scale of justice drawn on it — a bit similar with The Spacious Tarot’s Six of Coins.

These two cards, in my tarot novice opinion, tell better stories of the cyclical nature of the Six of Pentacles.
