For me I have the Rider-Waite Tarot deck,
so I don’t feel comfortable reading cards based around intuition with this deck. 
What I did after I got my deck was i pulled 1 card every morning and googled the meanings! 
I by no means have the meanings memorized but I’m working on memorizing the major arcana meanings? 
But by pulling a daily card I felt a little closer to my deck (and it helps me learn cards)
uh,, because My brother did a reading with my deck without my permission,, personally I felt super uncomfortable with the cards after that?
i know I’m giving too much personality to my deck but I’m my experience and to my preference each deck has a certain vibe?
Tbh my journey with tarot is such a mess and is mostly just me pulling them out at school and shuffling em’ to dispel anxiety??
this comment is messy but in my experience there is no such thing as a beginner deck, you practice how you like, and don’t let people tell you your reading is wrong because you didn’t cast a circle. 
If I cast a circle everytime I wanted to do a reading I might die 
IDK— this is a mess I’m sorry,,, I’d be glad to answer any like- specific questions though??

wow thank you actually!!! that method of learning the cards is actually super helpful tbh, i honestly never wouldve thought of that LMAO
and ive never personally owner my own deck but i get what you mean by like,, having a connection with it. like i know ill get that feeling when i get my own deck lmao. it might just be bc i like to personify everything but??? i feel like having a personal connection to a deck might make reading the cards easier in a sense??? or it might make me more confident in my readings or smth.
but honestly thank you so much!!! i really enjoyed reading your comment :^) i really appreciate it!! and i dont really have any specific questions right now but if i think of any ill be sure to hit u up !! <3

Yeah! The way I look at any sort of magic or divination is that it’s all personalized so if it’s comfy and good for you then that’s what works! I’m glad my comment was of some gain!
