To be honest I never really liked the Rider Waite tarot. When tarot came in my life, someone gave me the advise to buy the Universal Waite. The colours of the Universal Waite are softer and seem to be more gentle.
At a course I once took, a Rider Waite tarot was included. When I looked at these pictures I thought they where kind of harsh. I put them away immediately.
Because I was working with the Crowley at that time, I didn’t connect with the Waite tarot at all, not with the original and not with the Universal.
As time went by, I started a two year tarot course. This course acquired u to use the Rider Waite tarot in the first year. Okay………….that was something I had to get used to. I picked up the Universal, because of the soft colours to get started.Now, after 6 months of taking the course, something changed.
As we spoke about the cards and their meanings, I suddenly missed something in the Universal cards. It was a sense of clearness that was missing in the cards for me.
When I got home I took the original Rider Waite cards out of their package and they just felt right. As if I suddenly understood what it was all about with these cards. Never felt so close to them before.
Why I’m telling this story? I was wondering if you ever got a change of heart, when it comes to tarot decks? Just let me know!!
