Hey there everyone. (First real post! Woo!) So I’ve been wanting to get into tarot for a long time, and I finally scraped together enough money to buy my first deck. I took a lot of time looking for just the right one to reflect where I am in my practice. I finally settled on the satirical Ritual Abuse Tarot (pictures here). Got it today in the mail and… wow. I can feel it draining my energy, and it sends lingering pain up my arm when I touch the box. Exactly what I was looking for.
Has anyone worked with this deck before? Any general suggestions on how to become well-acquainted with a new deck? I found a spread online for “interviewing” a deck and getting to know it that way. I’m also planning to sleep with it under my pillow and see if it sends messages into my dreams. I’m about 95% sure that Something was channeling through the artist without his knowledge, and I would very much like to meet that Something.
