      I've never actually used a set of tarot cards; but my mother had a set and I would always get them out and look at them as a younger child. They kind of scared me, with the skeletons and what not. I've since not seen another set; always kind of wanted to get some and learn how to use & read them. Great hub Ceres, and wonderful pictures!! Upvoting :)
