Do you use the Tarot cards…for personal or professional psychic readings?   If so, have you stated creating your own set of unique cards?  I know many people use other existing Tarot card sets..  I once had a very `strong’ magical person who said that I shouldn’t use the Crowley pack, because I won;t be able to handle it magically (yet).   [It was this friend’s wife who taught me tarot …many years ago].

I believe there is no such thing as a powerful tarot card pack or not.   All Tarot card packs are pretty much neutral ..or empty..   Yes, they have powerful symbols, some of which have been created by some pretty powerful magicians in the past (and present?). But in the first instance, when you get a card pack… it’s empty..   that is until you start using it..and learning those symbols, and connecting with them..   and then they may become a `powerful set’ …for you!

The best thing is for you to create your own cards…  either scribbly drawings that are coloured, or use photos you have personally taken and cut and paste them (use a graphics software) into one image.   This may take time..but these cards are 100% yours, once you have created them..   and they work for you..!

As part of some personal image magic, few years ago, I started creating some of the tarot cards …using mostly personal photos or photos of objects and places I have taken myself. I have he 4 Ace cards, about 4-5 major Arcana, and few minor arcana cards!  At some point, I may work on completing the set..or may be never.

Above are the images of the 4 Ace cards I had done..  Apart from the Crown on the Ace of Sword, all images are from my own photos.. .. taken in my explorations..  Even the `crown’ has a few subtle alterations and additions (gems & features) that I created or added.  🙂
