The next biggest question I get asked is how do I choose which deck to use?
Mostly it depends on my mood. I can usually tell which deck is going to be best for any given reading or card of the day because I have worked with them all so much. If I have no real pull to any one deck, I will let my fingers decide.
Just holding you hand above each deck and waiting to see if the energy from that deck tickles your hand. It's that chi energy that will speak to you. You can also use a pendulum by holding it above the decks and see what it does.
At the beginning of my tarot journey I only had 1 deck and I stuck with it until I felt I had mastered its basic meanings and didn't have to keep looking at the book. My very first deck was a Celtic deck and I liked it but the cards were large and I have small hands so it felt like a battle to use it, so I bought a smaller Rider Waite Smith deck and that is the one I learned on. Also, when I first get a new deck, I may work with just that one for a week or more to get the feel for it and how it interacts with me.
It can't hurt to start with one deck and then branch out. Once you get the feel for a deck, how and when you use them starts to come naturally. There really is no one way or right way to choosing or using a deck. Do what feels natural to you!
