Tonight, I used two of my oldest decks - the Legend Arthurian Tarot, and the Gilded Tarot. I've used both of them enough that they feel like old, trusted friends, and that was exactly what I needed for the question I had in mind.

A long while back, I had the idea of using every single one of my decks in series of readings using a spread that requires two decks at a time. Along the way, I lost my camera, found my camera, got an iPhone that easily sends pictures to my computer, and finally decided to get back into the groove of doing these dialectical readings.

I had a lot of fun pairing up my decks, and tonight, I paired my one of my softest, most ethereal decks, my Mystic Dreamer Tarot, with one of my most "dark and spooky" decks, the Royo Labyrinth Tarot. These are both great decks that give me solid readings on their own, so I was anxious to see what happened when I put them together.

As I was updating my master deck list the other day, I realized that even though I have twenty decks, there are three or four that I use most often for myself.  If I'm going to pull a deck off my shelf and use it, it's most likely going to be my Arthurian, Fantastical Creatures, Gilded, or Mystic Dreamer decks. Now, this is completely understandable.  I've built up a relationship with the very particular sets of images on these cards, and many times the familiarity is a good thing.  However, I do sometimes feel like a parent picking favorites. I wanted to give my other decks some out-of-the-box time, so I hit upon the idea of using this spread from Aeclectic that calls for two cards to be pulled from each deck.  I'm going to try it several times over the next few weeks, time permitting.  I want to see what happens when I combine some very different decks, and I hope to be posting pictures of my results.

The first two decks I tried this with are my Fantastical Creatures Tarot and my Rumi Tarot.
