Top 10 Tuesday — Top 10 Tarot Card Decks

Tuesday, September 6, 2016

Hello my Lovlies.  As I mentioned last week I am beginning to study Tarot.
 That being said, Cynthia's Top 10 Tuesday post for this week is about tarot cards.  

This list is from a post on Little Red Tarot.


1. The Wild Unknown Tarot

Kim Krans’ beautiful, sparse and modern tarot is beloved by many. Along with my Rider-Waite-Smith (in second place) this is my favorite deck too – it’s the one I use for most of my readings.

2. Rider-Waite-Smith (including Centennial and Radiant versions)

Many of you said this was the deck you learned with – and the one you keep coming back to. That’s my experience too – whenever I feel a little detached from my cards, or lost, or I just need to talk to a really good friend, I come back to Pamela Colman Smith’s distinctive illustrations and everything seems to make sense.

3. The Shadowscapes Tarot

I was so excited to see Stephanie Piu-Mun Law’s beautiful fine-art deck coming out so high in the poll – it’s another of my favourites. It was the second deck I ever got, marking the moment that I realised there was more than one way to read a card (imagine that!)
It also has a book written by the wonderful Barbara Moore (and it’s worth getting the deck purely for this!)


4. The Collective Tarot

Lovers of this pioneering deck were divided into two camps – those who joyfully proclaim they have a copy…and those who wring their hands and pray for the day it will be published again. Whether you own it or not, a lot lot lot of you love this radical, queer tarot.

5. The Fountain Tarot

It was great to see this deck coming out so highly, considering it was only published a few months ago! Fans are in love with the detailed illustrations, muted yet powerful colours and the feeling of ‘connectedness’ they find in these cards.

6. The Wildwood Tarot

This nature-based deck has a cult following of folks who use it to feel more in tune with seasons and natural rhythms. It’s based on the Wheel of the Year, combining seasons, ancient festivals, elements and a revisioned system of tarot to provide really thought-provoking readings.


7. The Motherpeace Tarot

I don’t have the Motherpeace Tarot – one of the first feminist tarot

Tarot of the Silicon Dawn

Egypt Urnash’s sci-fi, trans-friendly, deviant, kinky, brilliant little deck is divisive, but those of you who love it, absolutely adore it.


The Dreaming Way Tarot

Aww, I’m so glad this snuck in at the end, it’s another of my own favourites! Quirky, modern, and incredibly insightful, this is another I turn to for client readings. It’s also the best-dressed tarot around, in my opinion!

Okay my Lovlies, I hope I've given you a glimpse of how intricate and beautiful tarot cards can be.
