A question to all the tarot readers of the forum, what is your favorite deck or decks? I was looking to all the decks that I have and that question came to my mind. Could you please post any photo of the deck and tell me what it makes it so special to you? Or any other story about your deck, I’m sure that all have amazing stories behind!
So, I have a few different decks I don’t have pictures of all of them but I do have some videos on my channel of deck walkthroughs.
Hanson Roberts Tarot
Spirits and Shadows Oracle
Wild Unknown Tarot
Celtic Tree Oracle
I think the only one I don’t have a video of is my Traditional Manga Tarot that I use in Freebie Fridays sometimes.
I think my favorite deck to use right now is my Traditional Manga Tarot. The images are just so captivating and I love the art style. I also really like the Somnia Tarot. The images are unique to the creator’s experiences with tarot and sleep paralysis, so the deck itself is unique!
I love my Robin Wood tarot deck! I felt pulled to it from the start but it was expensive for the extended book and the cards so I held off for quiet a while. I have a few others but I use this one daily. I love the art, it’s very Wiccan, and it’s just different enough from the traditional Rider-Waite deck to make me happy and close enough that the other books I read don’t confuse me.
Here’s a really great walk through on it! That way you’ll get to see all the cards.
I am working on the wizard tarot because this deck works on the astrological insights! I am really trying to understand each sun sighn to the card and the specific planets it is assigned too
I have “The Wizard Tarot”and the book that is sold Separate!
I have 2 so far. I have my black and gold Rider-Waite deck that was my first one to have in a long time. My last deck was an original style Rider-Waite as a 16 year old but I have lost that deck to life many eons ago. I fell for this one due to the contrast of the gold with the black. I name my tarot, so this is Elmira. She has a sense of sarcasm and will tell it like it is. She is not afraid to show you where you headed if you don’t listen to her. I had done a reading on my lost relationship with a former ‘lover’ (guy friend that I had been involved with for 15 years that had stopped talking to me). I got a card that was interpreted as a toxic relationship, with manipulation in the future spot. I got her meaning. I now know that it was better we went our separate ways.
Then there is my newest deck, Marigold. She is based on the Rider Waite but has Punjabi undertones. I love how delicate the cards are and fancy they feel. I havent done a reading with her other than to get to know her. So we shall see.
Gives me a different vibe than ones that use RW imagery
Always tells me what I need to hear, even if it isn’t related to the question asked, lol (i.e., like to through out jumpers). It doesn’t take s$%& from me (i.e., it will give me the same message over and over if I ignore it).
Ethereal Visions Illuminated Tarot Deck by Matt Hughes (Etsy, Amazon)
Again, got me with the artwork
Gives me a “regal” feeling
Gives messages in a more “gentle” way. It feels very loving while being powerfully illuminating.
I feel the same! Decks have different energy that can help in different situations- some days I can take the hard talk from Anima Mundi, but other times I need something more delicate so I’ll reach for Mystic Manga or Oppositions.
It’s a good excuse to buy more tarot decks, if you ask me!
My only deck so far is the Modern Witch tarot deck by Lisa Sterle. I really like it. It has beautiful imagery and I have connected with this deck really well. I would like to also branch out and get a few more decks, and maybe look into even oracle or angel cards.
