Since a lot of us are Tarot/Oracle readers, I wanted to create a thread where we could talk about our decks - but why limit it to decks? If you use pendulums, runes, boards, or tea leaves, drop a pic or a story about your experience with divination tools, et. al.
These are my babies in order of how long I’ve had them.
The Wild Unknown deck was a gift when I moved for grad school. I’ve found it to be very friendly and conversational in readings, it likes holding people’s hands when they’re going through hard times, and helping them see their own innate goodness.
The Zillich deck I picked up when one of my friends moved away and we were both feeling a little codependent about the situation. She picked up the Chrysalis tarot at the same time. Zillich has been my most mentally challenging deck; it likes to climb through my subconscious and toy with my pre-existing notions of archetypes and epic journeys. It likes to make me think about things from multiple perspectives until I come up with a new viewpoint of my own. Very meditative.
The Synesthesia deck is my newest, and possibly most potent. I’ve only done one reading with it so far, and it essentially told my friend “Stop asking when you’ll get a boyfriend - you don’t want a boyfriend, you want a long term, supportive life-partner, and you can have it as soon as you stop lying to yourself about that fact.” Bit harsh, but direct, and eager to give people the answer they need more than the answer they want.
What do your tools prefer reading about? What are their personalities?
