I love the Aecletic Tarot site, though I haven't been there in awhile, so I haven't checked out any new decks. Here are the three that I use the most:

I really like the deck that you showed us. I love anything dark and Gothic.

The Rider-Waite deck was created in 1910 and the illustrator was Pamela Coleman Smith. I've always been a stickler for details. I remember once in the 1970s when I watched the TV show "Kung Fu" one episode featured an old man who read Tarot cards and he had the Rider-Waite deck. This was erroneous, because the show was supposed to have taken place in the 1870s, so that particular Tarot deck hadn't been created yet.

I really like the Spirit Wheel deck. That is definitely one that I'd like to get for myself.

I love the Housewife tarot. it would be perfect for my best friend, who loves stuff from the 50s and 60s.

Here's a deck that I have that isn't a tarot deck, but I love the artwork:

Here's another gorgeous deck that I have:

There is another deck that I want to get. Rhiannon is central to a set of Welsh tales called the Mabinogion and there is a Tarot deck that is about those stories. The artwork is done by the same artist who did the artwork for the Legend Tarot that I have:

Hello, Atlantics ;)

I don't use any of the "traditional" Tarot type decks. Just no interest, I guess. My first divination set was my Crone Stones. From there, I was drawn to the Buddha deck as my path (my "Eclectic" Wiccan incorporates my Zen years ;)). Later the Medicine Card deck jumped out at me one day at the book store. Later, one of my Wiccan Circle group gave me a reading from their Voyager deck, and it also drew me to it, and I bought it as well. :P I think these all call to me, and always give me a "right on" reading. Normally a couple times a week I do a single card draw. I use whatever deck calls to me. I am never disappointed and the card and always illuminates something going on in my life for which I need guidance. I always call the Lady and Lord, the Guardians of the Four Directions, my Totems of the Four Directions to me before picking the card. :)

I also like the Crone Stones for readings:

As I replied to Sisterhoney, about no longer seeking out or buying books, I am not usually looking for new decks, either. These came to me at special times and in special ways, with a nudge from the Goddess. I work to stay in tune and open to the Goddess' voice within my mind and heart throughout the day, and when I am more successful at it, the guidance comes without using cards or stones. The information I need just suddenly is there in my mind and heart. :P It's been a long path of evolving, and it just keeps going...wherever it goes. ;)


Blessings,

Gypsy

Since we're on the topic of Tarot cards and since the ones that I have can be found on the Aeclectic Tarot deck, I thought I'd share with y'all some more of the decks that I have:

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/aquarian/

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/celtic-tree-oracle/

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/druid-animal-oracle/

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/faeries-oracle/

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/medicine-cards/

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/merlin/

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/morgan-greer/

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/tarot-of-cat-people/

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/voyager/

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/witches-runes/

One of my other favorite decks is the Black Tarot, which is based on the artwork of Luis Royo, one of my favorite artists. I was leery about posting the link to these cards, because of the nudity and didn't want to violate TOS. If you want to see them, go to the very bottom of any of these cards, click on where it says, "Browse A-Z," then click on "B" and go all the way to the bottom and you'll see the deck.
