|From Emily Carding's Tarot of the Sidhe|
Cat's Eye Tarot - In my eyes, the best cat tarot going (and I have several) as it really is from the cats' perspective, drawn by a vet - 'nuff said.
Crystal Visions Tarot - A soft, feminine deck with beautiful artwork, traditional RWS but with some nice twists.
Joie de Vivre Tarot - Quirky, and a bit less busy than the Paulina, with lovely colours and a playful air.
Journey Oracle - Another feminine deck, but with a hint of Steampunk and plenty of attitude :)
Gaian Tarot - I love the artwork and the nature- and community-based ethos - an intelligent and thoughtful deck.
Oracle of the Shapeshifters - Incredibly cute images, but with some real depth.
Tarot of the Sidhe - Emily's art is stunning, and I love the pagan spirituality it embodies, as well as the sense of magical, spiritual exploration.
Tarot of the Silicon Dawn - This deck is just completely innovative and out there - nothing else like it on the market!
Wheel of the Year Tarot - This choice may surprise many, as it isn't a deck that has gotten much attention. I love the pagan symbolism and the cartoon-like artwork. It just speaks to me.
Wildwood Tarot - A very different, nature-based deck with stunning artwork by Will Worthington. The proud successor of the Greenwood, I far prefer its more realistic imagery, while the depth of scientific and environmental thought remains.
Most anticipated decks for 2012:
Gilded Tarot Royale
