THE GRIMAUD MARSEILLE | TAROT DECK REVIEW

Tarot cards have been part of my life for years now .  I definitely think they are becoming more ‘acceptable’ and not so taboo as the years have gone on.



We now have people who read tarot as a living which is amazing , and definitely changed from what it was portrayed for back in the day.

My collection is definitely a big one , and I could probably open up my own tarot shop, but I definitely think different decks are for different purposes . I have a specific deck I use for my daily draw and also for my tarot planner for the year.

Another deck I solely use at Samhain / Halloween , and some that are mostly used around Spring and
Summer.

I recently was gifted a new deck, that I hadn’t actually heard of , but after having a little google , found it to be quite a popular French deck- The Tarot Of Marseille.



This 78 card deck was published in 1970, one of the oldest decks I own now . It was published by a French company called Grimaud.

The images are very basic and are of the primary colours - yellow, red and blue .

If you are new to tarot and not sure how to read cards , the cards literally speak for themselves. What you see in the card is what is being told to you.

As a beginner I would definitely say this deck would not be for you.



It doesn’t come with a booklet and the cards are in French so if you are not familiar with all the cards in a tarot deck then you really wouldn’t know which card is which, but as a reader who knows her cards, I am really excited to do some more readings with this deck as I think it’s a lovely one and definitely not something I already own.

If you are interested in learning tarot or find yourself being a little curious then definitely check out 7tarot, where you can have free readings and get to know the meanings of the cards :)

I’d love to hear if you are a tarot reader and what your favourite deck is ..
