Ever use Tarot cards for writing?

Given that Tarot cards are more image heavy than regular playing cards, Tarot decks can be useful for generating story characters, plots, and whatnot.

And this author knows it!

You don’t have to know the meanings of the cards to get inspiration, you can simply go by how the cards make you feel.

I’ve done it. How about you?

Once or twice. I'm not a huge fan. It can be interesting, but a lot of the imagery in the Tarot is very deep and you kinda have to know what the cards mean, especially if you've only got a symbolic minor arcana.

As an alternative, try these: Arcane Bullshit

I never knew I wanted these before but now I must have them.

They're awesome :D Here's a video of a reading I did using them:


Anyway I will stop derailing your thread now, except to say that I also recommend 'the Arthurian Tarot' for people who want a traditional deck.
