My Tarot Deck is a Ukiyo-e Japanese woodcut print deck; I have a set of actual Chinese coins for my I Ching divination (counting out yarrow stalks takes hours).

Having had yarrow in my garden at one point, I can imagine.

I've tried out a load of different forms of divination over the years though generally stick to using my Wildwood Tarot now. I also love The Faeries Oracle though have been using this set less recently. I absolutely love the art work on tarot and oracle sets, several of the ones I own are purely for aesthetic purposes. If I had the money and space I would buy more and collect them.

Several years ago I made my own set of wooden runes, I also have a pendulum (which I tend to use more when I do healing work), a crystal ball for scrying and a self created divination set of different items that appeal to me. There may be more but I can't remember what I have stashed away in my cupboards.

I used to read the cards for other people with some wonderful results though tend to read them for myself more now than others. I actually find it easier to do readings for other people as I don't tend to over think the messages in the way I do for myself.

I just got the Wildwood Tarot a few weeks back and I am in love with it.  The art work, the system, the cards... all of it is just exactly what I hoped to find in a personal Tarot deck.  I still haven't done any readings yet as I am still studying the cards but it is fantastic!

I have not gotten to use my Wildwood Tarot, but I was thrilled to find it as I'd been trying to get my hands on the Greenwood Tarot deck (by mark Ryan and Chesca Potter) for a long time.  How have you found it?

I really love the deck, I've found I really connect with the images which for me at least is the key to getting good accurate readings. I've tried quite a few decks but this one is the one that seems to speak to me more clearly at the moment and is the first deck I've really been drawn to in a long time. I haven't tried reading for anyone else with them yet though as I've only had the deck for about six months or so.

I would be delighted to get a copy of the Greenwood Tarot, I had been looking for that prior to buying the Wildwood though it's just so expensive to get now that it's out of print.

I ahve the same exact issue with Greenwood.  I want it but 10 years ago it was out of print and at $125+ on ebay.

I have a late 80s/early 90s tarot deck called the Rohrig, it's a german airbrush thing. Personally I think I liked the deck because the Chariot was a race car, which sat well with me. I liked the updating of the concepts.

Whoa!  I'm not a "believer", but I've always been fascinated by divination of all sorts and collect associated memorabilia.  Most of the items are things that friends and acquaintances who know of my interest have given me over the years.  Among the dozen tarot decks in my collection is the Greenwood deck, and I seem to remember having a book to go with it - although I don't know where it is.  If I can find it I'm really tempted to put it up on ebay!

Back in college (during the Triassic age) I did readings to amuse my friends and pick up girls (well, try to, anyway).  I always used the Aquarian deck that a Wiccan friend gave me in the mid-70s because I liked the art best.  Years later I ran a D&D campaign using these same cards rather than dice... LOL... Ah the good old days.

I'm not a believer (never was either) but I'll admit, someone I used to know described personality traits of Taurus people and it was surprisingly along the lines that I consider myself to fall under. And one time a hippie friend of my hippie foster sister read my palm and it sounded eerily accurate despite me never having met him.
