Search the phrase “interview tarot deck” on Pinterest. You’ll find various tarot spreads to try. Or, use the simple three-card spread I created for interviewing a new tarot deck.
Why might you want to “interview” your tarot deck?
It may sound a little superstitious, but tarot decks, like any object, contain and give off certain energies. This means that certain tarot decks are better at connecting with and channeling different energies.
For example, one tarot deck may have a very didactic or teacher-like energy while another has a very soothing, therapeutic energy. Some tarot decks may seem to be giving out tough love and point-blank lessons and others are more comforting in the messages they tend to reveal.
So, a lot of people like to “interview” a new deck to see what kind of inner work (if you read for yourself, like me) or types of readings (if you read for others) would be best suited for this deck and its energy.
You can also do a deck interview if you feel like you’ve become disconnected from your deck or if you haven’t used a deck in awhile and would like start doing readings with it again.
Here’s my basic tarot deck interview spread.
Shuffle your tarot cards. Pull one card for each of the following three questions.
- What is the energy or intention of this deck?
- What can this deck show me or teach me about myself?
- How might my life change after working with this deck?
