My first tarot deck was the Spiral Tarot.

It was given to me by my boyfriend for my birthday.

It was a good deck. Around when I graduated high school, just before I left for college I left it in a friend’s car.

Nearly 5 years later when  I next spoke to her she returned it to me. I know it was seeking me, but it is hard to disentangle it from the less-than-positive-partner that gifted it to me.

This deck has a very colorful art. It is rich and depicts a variety of ages, of generally binary-appearing, white, european people. Like many Smith-Waite style decks it has illustrated minors.
