I want a new deck, what should I get?


Right now I have Hanson-Roberts as my main deck, which I've had for like 20 years. But since I've really started using it lately and getting more into Tarot, I want another one. Plus I'm sad and we all know shopping makes us feel better, so why not a new deck What is your top recommendation and/or favorite deck?

Thats my favorite deck!

Have you seen chrysalis tarot? Been on my wishlist for a bit, looking for a summery one myself.

What were you looking for in a deck?

I would recommend pagan cats, if you like cats. I have always had a cat or two in my life so it reads friendly, various ages of cats in different postures and moods.

Happy searching!

I guess a similar deck, I def want one that is the same size but I want something with really pretty pictures. I just want something new. I like when the cards have the names listed on them too. Im going to google that one right now, there are soooo many its hard to decide. I started looking at all the different ones on here and felt over whelmed lol..and I do like cats but Im a bird person. I have a parrot, I always joke and say Im going to be an old bird lady with birds instead of cats haha

If you don't mind larger cards, The Druid Craft Tarot by the Carr-Gomm's and Will Worthington is an amazing (in my opinion) deck. Using the Hanson-Roberts, the Druid Craft will likely or may feel gigantic to you, just putting that out there. I think it's beautiful...very earthy and organic, just the deck for those that feel attuned to nature, outdoorsy, etc. Plus, it reads so very, very well. It's one of my top dependable, honest, trustworthy decks and has been for years.

The Spiral Tarot by Kay Steventon is a great reading deck with lovely artwork, especially the majors. The minors' artwork is pretty as well but differs in style from the majors. That said, it reads terrific and is on the smaller size (nearer to the Hanson-Roberts) if you prefer that size deck.

I'm also a big fan of the Morgan-Greer. It's border-less, got a terrific 70's style (if you like or don't mind that genre) and stays very true to the RWS system. Top notch reading deck as well.

But really, it just depends on what style artwork you're drawn to and appreciate. Everyone has different taste. I could sit here for ages and give you deck recommendations but I think you'll know your next deck when you see it. There are decks out there for EVERYTHING you can imagine, pretty much. Vampires (Tarot of Vampyres by Ian Daniels is a terrific deck if you do), Fantasy Art, Traditional, Fairies, cats, cartoon style, digital imagery...you name it, really. Just explore and search, it's half the fun!

Good luck on your next choice!

I actually almost got that one once!! I saw it on ebay and really liked it!!! But I def want to stay in the same size range. I have small hands and omg its def overwhelming with all the options...I love vampires, I love fairies, Im sitting here right now just going through google with different terms "coolest tarot cards" "prettiest tarot cards" I really like the Illuminated one but I think thats big too.

I just bought Tarot of the Pirates, Impressionist Tarot, 78 Nautical, Prisma Visions 3rd Edition, Sun and Moon, and waiting on a trade/sell for Paulina Tarot.

I also purchased BoneFire Tarot {still in packaging} and Everyday Witch Tarot. I love my Everyday Witch Tarot deck!

Pagan Cats. EVERYONE needs it

It has titles, it has ADORABLE borders, it is easy to read with, sharp and witty, and the pictures are just gorgeous.

BUY EEEET ! (oh, and it isn't expensive, either !)
