My name is Manuele. I'm a 26 years old guy, and I'm Italian.
My interest in Tarot is a passion that I discovered in 2012: I went on holiday, one year before, with a group of friends; one of these was a very unusual person: Gio. He was a transgender boy, and that make me a little confused because I didn't know how to appeal to him (Italian uses gendered adjectives...), 'cause she was a girl in effect but everyone called him only "Gio", using feminine or masculine declination for adjectives... Farther, he had a very rebel and strong temper.
One night, we played spin the bottle and then Gio make a short reading (not a professional one, but just a spread explaining the meanings of the cards) to each one.
I felt immediately attraction for this deck of card, "I Tarocchi"...
She used the Black Tarot ( by L. Royo). I didn't appreciate the art of the pictures but I feel connected with the history, the meanings of these archetypal figures...
Months later I bought my first deck: Dark Angels Tarot.
And then... then I start collecting decks 'cause I consider Tarot the most intuitive Sacred Book of all times, and I want to feel every artist's representation of these unknown energies called Archetypes...
Happy to found this community, greetings to everyone!
