Specially one for them personally. I'm not really artistic or crafty, but I've thought about creating a tarot deck unique to only me, but I don't know the first thing on how to create one. I'm not even sure of a"theme" to go with.

Any ideas?

One idea is to get index cards, blank, and to use the traditional Rider Waite symbolism, since it's easy to find resources all over the place for it, on the web, in books, etc.

Then, brainstorm, meditate or journal on themes in your life that are very meaningful, and choose an overall theme that stands out; or choose one with a pendulum, or from a tarot reading from a deck that you use often.

I would meditate on each card before creating your own and really looking over each of the symbols and finding pieces that are really meaningful to you. It might take a long time, but the effort will be worth it.

Hope that helps!

I imagine some artistic skills would be useful, I mean they all have pictures on. Unless you print off pictures you like from Google.

You can get blank tarot cards to add art to. What about decoupage? Where you take images you like and glue them to the card?
