The Hezicos Tarot is one of my most recent Tarot deck acquisitions. I purchased this deck last month. I decided to do an “interview” with this deck to see what the Hezicos Tarot had to say to me. For each question, I drew a card from this deck to let it speak to me.
You can do this sort of interview with your own decks, and it can be especially insightful for a brand new deck that you’ve not used yet. This “Interview Reading” was the first reading I did with the Hezicos Tarot – but I have done many more since!

Interview with the Hezicos Tarot Deck
Velvet Angel: Tell me about yourself. What are your characteristics?
Hezicos Tarot: (Knight of Cups)
I’m quite pleasant to work with, and I make good friends with those that I do work with. Some people are considered to be a “people person,” and I guess you could say that I am a “people deck.” People find me to be attractive and fun, so I can easily alleviate fears through my gentle and charming nature. I like to be the Knight in Shining Armor for those who seek me. I care very much about the feeling side of people. I work well with emotions.
I have a lot of enthusiasm to share, and I like to have fun in whatever I am doing (responsible fun, of course). I can make people smile straight from the heart.
Velvet Angel: What are your strengths?
Hezicos Tarot: (10 of Swords)
While some decks don’t take well to self-pity or martyrdom, if you’re feeling sorry for yourself, I can be a great pick-me-up. However, please note that my strength lies in telling it like it is, so you might not always like my answers. Sometimes what you need to hear could feel painfully brutal. However, my gentle and loving characteristics can also help you see past your own perceived pain. I can help you deal with the wounds that life and people have inflicted upon you. I’ll help you find closure when you need to put something to rest. I will help you deal with an ending so that you don’t ignore a new beginning that awaits. I am very patient, and I will help you clean your wounds, find healing, and start anew. I never want anyone to just lay down and give up! So no matter how bad it appears, I am there for you! I’ll help you find the will to pick yourself up so that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Velvet Angel: What are your limitations as a Tarot deck?
Hezicos Tarot: (Page of Rods)
Some people might rank me lower than I really deserve, because I am such a cute and charming Tarot deck. But don’t be fooled, because I can keep up with the best of them. I’m not here to simply please your emotions (although I can do that, too), but I’m here to help you connect with your inner child when that is what you need to do. I’m here to help you grow – even when it’s tough to do so. I’m designed for the inner child of the adult world, so I really don’t work so well with children as you might think.
I’m not the cute deck on the shelf that you can hand to a child, because I do contain some minor nudity within my cards – all in good taste, and nothing vulgar, of course. Don’t believe me? Check out the 4 of Coins, 9 of Coins, Temperance, the Star, and Judgement. I am intended for mature audiences, despite my cute appearance. So please don’t pat my box and say, “Oh, what a cute deck, but I need something practical today” and then turn away. If you do, you will miss a lot! Thus, I’m too easily overlooked by those who don’t like “cute” decks.
Like an active child who is demanding to be noticed and heard, I want your attention as well! I have a lot to share for those who will listen.
Velvet Angel: What is the quality you have that drew me to you?
Hezicos Tarot: (6 of Swords)
You saw a magical journey when we were first introduced! You saw an opportunity to help people gently transition between rough waters and calmer ones. I hold little surprises in so many parts of myself, and you noticed that! You wanted to sail with me and explore even more of those great discoveries. Good choice! Because I can take you places that are worth your time and attention when you give me a chance!
A calm feeling is what you felt upon seeing me – excited yes, no doubt – but the kind of peace you felt was a real connection when we met. You could envision us traversing through both the rough waters of life as well as the calm ones . . . and that we could do this together successfully. You saw something that some might miss – you saw and felt that special emotional connection with me, just like some people might miss the emotional aspects of the 6 of Swords, simply because it’s an air card instead of a water card . . . but there is plenty of water to behold in this card! You truly went with the flow and followed your heart to take a journey with me and allow me to be a part of your world as I wanted you to also be a part of mine. Together, we can set sail for an amazing journey to seek, find, and share.
Velvet Angel: What is your favorite question or issue to address in a reading?
Hezicos Tarot: (Reversed 6 of Coins)
I like to address questions from those who feel they don’t have what they want or deserve. I love to show seekers when and how to get help . . . and also how to give more of themselves so they can get something back in return when they need it. I promote equality in give and take, so I enjoy questions where balance needs to be restored to a situation. I can point out to seekers when they are being treated unfairly . . . or when they themselves might be treating or acting unfairly in a situation – whether that unfairness is directed toward others, or even to themselves. I love to address questions where lessons in responsibility need to come out into the light, whether this relates to financial responsibility, relationship responsibility, work matters, or anything else for which one needs to be their responsible best in life.
Velvet Angel: How can we best work together?
Hezicos Tarot: (King of Cups)
We can work best together through love and being attentive listeners to both our seekers as well as to our intuition. We can work together through a myriad of emotions and see the truth in any situation. And a seeker always needs the truth, along with a healthy dose of tender loving care. Our kind and gentle natures will blend nicely to help our seekers discover the answers they need to hear. We might not always be able to tell seekers what they want to hear, but we will indeed tell them what they need to hear.
We can be mature in our conduct together, but we can still have great fun in working with the cards together. Being responsible and mature does not mean that fun is out of the picture. In conducting ourselves this way, we can provide helpful advice and support to those who are seeking answers. Everything we do must be done from a place of love.
If you have noticed, three cards that appeared for this interview are court cards – and so when I said in the beginning that I am a “people deck,” I was quite honest and serious about that, as I have shown you three faces among those in this deck. It was not merely a coincidence, but is a token of my honest revelations to you and all those who seek me. You might also wonder why I have not answered questions with any Major Arcana cards. Well you see, my friend, it’s the everyday bits and pieces of life that lead to the major events. Working together, though, we’ll definitely be looking at major things in your life that are building, growing, or need to be restored, repaired, nurtured . . . or even that which should be surrendered. I give you just a small picture now of what we can do and how we can work together, but the bigger picture is waiting in reserves for you to see when you choose to work with me.
