Deck Review: The Universe Has Your Back

When I go on trips, I try to come home with at least one deck—something I can use for my tarot work or for my personal draws, and something to remember a new place by. I had already seen "The Universe Has Your Back" oracle cards everywhere on Instagram (I mean, who hasn't?) but wasn't too keen on joining the bandwagon, because as with the Sacred Creators Oracle, I've never really been one to go for oracle decks with full on sentences on them.

Better Together: Dark Days Tarot + Many Moons

I never expected I'd be using this book and this deck together, but they serendipitously fell into my hands at about the same time… and it was Kismet!

5 Reasons to Get a Borderless RWS Deck

If you're going to get serious about learning the tarot, you can't go wrong with a Rider-Waite Smith deck. The thing is, if you're nitpicky about things (like I am), it can be a little confusing to find exactly the right RWS for you because there are a ton of them in the market. There are the plaid backed super glossy high octane neon ones. There's the Original Rider Waite Smith (my first RWS deck, incidentally) with more muted yellows but muddier lines. There's the Smith-Waite Centennial edition with minimalist backs, thicker card stock and sepia tones. This isn't even naming any of the vintage editions.
