Do you have more than one deck that you use, and, if so, do you have a favorite? If not, why do you like the deck you have chosen?
Wildwood Tarot (more info)
This was one of the decks I bought earliest, and it was probably not the best move. The deck is heavy and deep, and by delving into it so early, I really almost drowned myself a couple of times. However, it is now my favorite deck to use when I know I need deep answers. When I need a no-nonsense, profound, tough love kind of reading, I reach for the Wildwood, and it has yet to disappoint me.
Mary-El Tarot (more info)
Also, thanks to submerina, I fell in love with the art for this deck. At the time, it was unpublished and so I joined the slavering masses, pining for its publication. Eventually, joyfully, it was released to the public and I pre-ordered this baby. I find this deck to read similarly to Wildwood, in that it is deep. But this deck is also dark. When I’m looking for a strong reading, and feeling a bit more adventurous (and not as keen for a chastisement), I reach for the Mary El. My only complaint about this deck is that it’s way too friggin huge for my hands.
Joie de Vivre Tarot (more info)
My husband bought me this deck as a gift and it has remained my absolute, easy favorite. Whenever I need to bring a deck with me somewhere, I bring this one. Not only is the art gorgeous and fun, but each reading is full of joy, optimism, and light-hearted comfort. It is a pleasure to read with, and I find that when I read with it, I spend a lot of extra time just looking at the cards because they’re so pretty and so detailed! Hands down, this one’s my quick go-to deck.
