From Marvel to Ghostbusters, here are some new tarot deck releases from your favourite movies and tv shows!

If you follow my page, you know that I am a big enthusiast when it comes to Tarot.  I collect anything and everything Tarot while I am also learning to read for myself.  I am not a professional Tarot reader or anything like that, I am just someone that appreciates the self-reflection that comes with Tarot and how it often combines with pop culture or themes that resonate with me.  One of the biggest myths out there is that you can't buy your own tarot deck and that it must be given to you.  Well, you are probably going to be waiting for a long time!  Years ago I was told this by a friend who read tarot when I expressed how I wanted to learn and buy a deck.  I dropped many hints to many different people and months later I still had no deck.  So I went and purchased my first deck which soon grew to me purchasing a new deck every fortnight.  I used to just buy exclusively tarot but also started to buy oracle cards as well.  The artwork speaks to me and while some decks I have just to have them, others often rotate through my card of the day board that I use.  There is no right or wrong way to collect tarot cards.  If you want to buy a deck to just have it then go do it!  If you want to buy a new deck to read with, go get that!  Tarot is incredibly personal as it requires you to look within yourself so you need to have some form of connection with the cards.  If it is just you think the artwork is pretty or it is a themed deck from an indie artist or even a television show or classic movie that you like; if you feel that connection, treat yourself!  Below are some of the recent and up and coming releases of your favourite movies and tv shows!  (Scroll to the bottom if you want recommendations in other areas)

Are you Marvel or DC (there is also a DC deck).  I am team Marvel thanks to my enthusastic boys!  Loki would be my favourite character and I can't wait to see how he is portrayed in Tarot.

These are just some of the new decks coming out.  

This is just a small taste of what I have seen coming over the next few months.  Here are a few tips (or lessons I have learnt) when buying new tarot:

  • Always try to buy direct from the artist's shop or their publishers.  A cheap deck on eBay usually means it has been ripped off by a cheap overseas supplier.  The quality is poor, the cards are a different size and it is just bad all around.
  • Do your research when funding a kickstarter campaign.  There is always an associated risk, it just depends on how much you believe in a product!  
  • Sometimes handmade products on Etsy are not up to the standard they should be.  Always check reviews.
  • Book stores or retailers only sell verified products from a publisher.  While they may be mass-produced, you are receiving a genuine product.
  • Don't be afraid to support an indie artist.  The unboxing experience is quite personal and you can literally feel the love they put into creating the deck.
  • Tarot is very personal.  I might like something you hate or vice versa.  It should be something that speaks to you or resonates with you in some way.  Don't let someone tell you that is not the deck for you if it is something you like.  Also, don't let someone force you into getting a deck that you don't like.  If you don't like it, you won't use it and it will sit gathering dust.  Whether it is just a themed deck you like or it is artwork you think it is beautiful, when the right deck comes along, you will just know it!
