Greetings,
My name is Vlad, I come from Romania and I found this interesting site thanks to a good friend.
I'm an amateur in terms of Tarot divination, doing spreads mostly for myself. Also I'm interested in various spiritual practices.

Nice to meet everyone of you! :icon_e_wink:

Some of our monthly reading clubs still accept subscriptions till the end of today. A perfect way for relative beginners to get some practice and sharpen their wits! :64(17):

Hello, Vlad! Enjoy tarot. Live & learn...is, or was, Budapest in Romania? My grandmother was born there.

Budapest is the capital of Hungary, you probably talk about Bukarest ;-) Both beautiful cities.

Welcome, Vlad! I'm very interested in cartomancy traditions from Eastern Europe, and also innovations from there. Do you have a tarot scene in Romania, and how does it look? Tarot shops, preferred decks, homegrown decks, beliefs and rituals around cards, playing cards...? A lot of questions, I'm sorry, of course you don't have to answer. But I'm really glad to see someone from Romania! It's many years since I was there but I remember it as beautiful country with very friendly people.

Hi Nemia!
Thanks for clarifying, yes, capital city is Bucharest. :icon_e_biggrin: Glad to hear you like here.

I am not sure about the tarot scene in Romania, maybe because I learned about tarot from international books and internet (I mostly use Rider Waite deck). Decks that are found here are not a lot different than in Western Europe.
I guess gypsies use the German playing cards and the common ones for divination.
There are some rituals around cards, gypsy witches are doing a lot but I'm not sure about how much is genuine divination or scam...
I can make a research and post later.
I'm trying to learn Yi Jing and Ba Zi for my own use (I'm very interested in Far Eastern methods).

Best wishes
