    Hi Kelli,

    I love your enthusiasm and your approach in wanting to sit with the images and see what arises for you. This is using The Moonchild Tarot deck. I absolutely love it’s beauty! I will say these images aren’t always as intuitive to me as the Smith-Rider Waite images, which is sort of the classical basis and origin of Tarot in the form of a deck. I find I refer to those images in my mind no matter what deck I use and they are FULL of symbolic meanings. If you find yourself interested enough to begin playing with Tarot you might consider a deck based on these images. The original is overwhelmingly white and Euro-centric, but there are many decks now that are more inclusive of all people. The Modern Witch Tarot is a fun spin that still uses most of the classic imagery from the SRW deck, for example, and the Melanated Classic Tarot uses the precise imagery but with representation in different skin tones and bodies. Happy exploring if you choose to do so!
