Are you considering a personal gift for a pagan or tarot card enthusiast? Think about these tarot decks.

Yule

The time of that year to celebrate the arrival of the Winter Solstice is soon upon us! The longest day of the year, also known as “Yule” or “Yuletide” is when the dark relieves the lighted half of the year and is considered to be the sun’s “rebirth.” This pagan celebration is honored with the power of light, ranging from candles, bonfires, and more. A tradition that has been passed down by the Norse peoples to the Celts to present day worshippers and enthusiasts.

Tarot

Tarot is a form of playing-card game that was created during the 14th century. Today, tarot is mostly used for divination practices.There are numerous amounts of styles for tarot sets that differ from regional design and deck size. Many decks exist for the artwork alone.

Now, how do tarot and Yule mix? It’s that time of year to shower your loved ones with a deck of their own! Fun fact: those who wish to have a deck of their own can’t buy it for themselves. It’s a sign of being selfish, therefore, the deck then has a negative aura and will bring only bad luck.

There are few Yuletide tarot spreads that one may attempt ranging from a three-card to a six-card to a twelve-card.
