In my opinion, the Sacred Circle deck is amazing. I feel very comfy working with it and it can give very detailed info or just a general overview. Also, the artwork on the cards can be a good focus for meditation if you need a visual for something specific. :)

I collect decks, so it’s always difficult to choose a favorite, like telling someone which of my three children is the favorite. I think my favorite deck at the moment is the Aquarian Deck which is one of the first I ever encountered. The art work and symbolism just speak to me and I guess that’s what makes it perfect for it’s purpose.

I love the guilded tarot the artwork is amazing ! I like that it sticks with the original rider-waite symbolism so that even beginners can use it.
Even clients comment on how really beautiful the cards are the six of swords is one of my favorite cards if you look at it long enough you can get lost in it….

I have several decks, some I have inherited from my Late Sister (hubs first wife) who was a HPS. And though there are quite a few, I like using a couple of the decks. Some are my husbands, and he has stated he prefers his particular ones. We have put them aside so none of those are sold.

But I recently came across a new deck, and its fascinating. The Gaia Tarot. They are very realistic, and modern (but no modern Technology depicted), in the fact of neo pagan (new age hippie like folks) people used in the art work. The art is breathtaking, the entire scene on every card is realistic and Goddess loving. The Death Card is more honest than any I have ever seen. No demon involved, instead, just a bird on a boat, spirit long since left its body, and the body returning back to the mother in a natural manner. I recommend this deck to anyone who wants to see well into the cards, these speak volumes without screaming. Blessed Be!

I, too, am a collector of tarot decks – when one speaks to me I purchase it and try it out. However, the one I feel most comfortable with and that I use the most often is the Druid Craft Tarot. It “uses the magic of Wicca and Druidry to guide your life”. I LOVE the artwork in it – and as mentioned previously, there is no “devil” imagery in it either – the symbolism is very easy to read and there is a detailed book that comes with it for those learning to read tarot. I have used this deck on a weekly basis for the past number of years and I truly love it and highly recommend it. Blessed be! xo

Like Debbie, I too love the Druid Craft tarot! I own a few tarot decks, but my favourite would definitely be Druid Craft – followed very closely behind by the Secret Garden tarot. I love that the Druid Craft has beautiful artwork, and each card speaks absolutely volumes. It is an extremely intuitive deck for me to use. Also, I absolutely love the Fferyllt card – it’s unique to the Druid Craft, I think, and the first time I saw this card I knew it was a special one, with the image of Ceridwen brewing at the cauldron. Druid Craft, definitely my favourite deck!

Also, the Secret Garden (by Lo Scarabeo) is a very beautiful deck. I love the imagery – very hauntingly beautiful, mystical, and speaks right to the innermost parts of the soul. This deck somehow manages to transcend the more conscious parts of your thought and speaks your innermost thoughts, if you get what I mean – this is an especially intuitive deck which I find very hard to put into words. With this deck, you just -know-, which I love about it. However I don’t really like that the images are on both sides of the card (one side in color, one in black-and-white); I feel like when using this deck I have to use it with my eyes closed to prevent me from picking up whichever card I see first rather than the random, most intuitive card.

I love my Connolly deck! The images are colorful and just beautiful. This deck has differnt images/names for the “Death” and “Devil” cards. Should eiher of these cards appear during a reading, it sure helps the readee stay relaxed! They have the same meanings, but it sure is easier to explain the “Death” card with the image and name of “Transition” shows up!

i used to have a deck a while back that was a dragon themed one. it got lost and i miss it greatly. the only deck i managed to save, i don’t much care for. its a very Christian themed deck. all the aces show the hand of god and instead of the devil it uses pan. i find it insulting and poorly drawn, but it was a gift so i still keep it. it never has had very accurate readings. I’m planning on buying a new deck once i have the money, but I’m going to look into it and try and pick the perfect one
