So, I did a three card reading, Pathway Spread, and then interpreted each depending on the deck. I didn't purposely make the readings different, but I did them on separate days, and without referring to the other.

Now - The Oak King, Don't - Five of Arrows, Do - The World
It's a time when we're called on to act maturely, for the good of all those to whom we bear responsibility, to ensure that everyone is well at a physical level. Practicality comes to the fore, and duty, though there is also room to enjoy the physical pleasures of life.
We must avoid explosive disputes, and being too focused on one thing to see what is around us. Being at crosspurposes with others will serve no useful function. The advice is to tread lightly, to work towards a sense of completion and fulfillment that includes others, rather than battles against them.
|Sun and Moon Tarot (U.S. Games, 2010)|
Now - King of Pentacles, Don't - Five of Wands, Do - The Universe
The situation is one which calls for a calm, steady approach. This King of Pentacles suggests the need for (re)connecting with nature, for being loyal and steadfast. Allowing others their time and space is a part of that.
The cards suggest we should avoid conflict, or even seemingly productive competition. Instaed, this is a time for seeing that we are complete within ourselves, and expressing that through finishing up projects and making healthy choices. Yoga would be a good choice, whatever the question ;D
I found this a very interesting exercise. The readings, though similar, were also really quite different. It makes me think just how important it is to choose a deck for a given reading or querent. You can also do this exercise to get another perspective if a reading has you a bit stymied. Why not give it a go?
