    Re: Tell me about your favorite decks personality.

    I like the idea of different decks having different personalities, but I'm sorry to say that I've never really noticed that with mine... I've always viewed my cards as being more like a telephone; it's who's on the other side that brings the personality. But maybe I just haven't been paying proper attention... I'll keep the possibility in mind in the future

    Re: What Tarot deck(s) do you have?

    I started with the Rider-Waite deck, but I never really "clicked" with it. I now have the Witches Tarot deck, which is R-W based and it has BEAUTIFUL artwork! The next deck I buy will be the Earth Magic oracle deck, but for now I am content with the deck I have. It resonates with me and I find I am learning to read the cards much easier than when I was working with my R-W deck. I only ever read for myself, but once I get a little more comfortable, I would like to start doing readings for other people and see how that goes.

    Re: Tell me about your favorite decks personality.

    My deck is a Chrysalis Tarot deck, and it's very... Temperamental. The first reading I ever did with it told my friend to get off her high horse and quit fooling around and get into gear.

    But when I read for myself or my husband, it's very nice and too the point.

    Other times it's so rude and to the point it's like. "Well fine then, make me have to be mean."

    If you know what I meant? XD It's like a sassy deck.

    Re: Tell me about your favorite decks personality.

    I use the Russian Tarot of St. Petersburg and the cards have an interesting history.

    The artist, Yury Shakov, was a miniature painter, painting with brushes with a single hair to make his masterpieces come to life. Everything was painted to-size in great detail, and he made it through the Major Arcana and the suite of Chalices before his death in 1989. The deck was unfinished and so they commissioned another artist to complete it.

    This deck has already seen strife and loss and melancholy. The cards are pretty serious and they don't mince words or meanings lightly, though they tend to be much more esoteric and mystical. Lots of hidden messages and I often get frustrated with how cryptic they can be.

    What can I say. They're Russian. :3

    Re: What Tarot deck(s) do you have?

    I have 4 :
    1. Revelations (My first deck and the one that really felt "right" for me.)
    2. Cat (I love cats so I felt it was appropriate lol)
    3. Goddess Oracle (I've always liked the Oracle cards because they were a bit different than normal.)
    4. Homestuck (A fun deck that's based off the webcomic.)

    Its not about finding the "right path" but more so finding the path that's right for you

    Re: What Tarot deck(s) do you have?

    I've currently got eight decks!! Feel free to check out the deck boxes I've made for each (minus the last one since its not a real deck in my opinion) I've got a few more on my list of wants, but they'll definitely have to wait til I'm not scrambling for money for a new car and to fix my teeth >_<

    Re: What Tarot deck(s) do you have?

    I have a rare 1/1000 deck that I have more as a collectible than for actual uses. The artwork is absolutely astounding. I also own the Deviant Moon deck, which is my go to.

    The pale guests await thee - mead foams in Valhalla.'"
