* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

I have the Rider-Waite deck, Tarot of the Pagan Cats, and the Druidcraft deck. Pagan Cats has become my go-to deck-- it just radiates such warmth, that the cards make me feel right at home. Rider-Waite is usually used for readings for others.

The Druidcraft deck is just for show. I have a very hard time using it, as its unnaturally large cards cannot even fit in my hands. The cardstock isn't great either, and so shuffling is a pain. Perhaps due to this, I have had a very, very difficult time connecting with these cards.

I intend to add the Circle of Life tarot to my repertoire soon enough, as I have been drooling over it for some time!

I have the Mystic Faerie tarot by Barbara Moore and the Carr-Gomms' Druidcraft tarot. I'm mostly using the latter these days.

Off at home in the States I have a Thoth deck and a Goddess tarot.

I had a Hieronymos Bosch deck once but I never felt comfortable with it so I eventually swapped it away.
I just got the Thoth Tarot deck!

I only have two Tarot decks so far: The Zerner-Farber Tarot (it was originally my mom's. She gave it to me when I was a wee Wiccan) and The Gilded Tarot, which I just bought yesterday and already love. (It came with an easy tarot handbook, which... I kinda wish I had when I first started since some of the tips in there I could've really used. There's also some in there I could honestly do without, haha.)

My Zerner-Farber Tarot deck is missing the King of Pentacles, though. I'm not at all sure where he vanished off to and haven't really found him. It kinda sucks.

Um, I also use a set of meditation cards for divination purposes... but sometimes they feel too 'fluffy' to me. It's not the cards themselves, but rather the words that are used in them. It can get pretty eye rolling.

How have I not seen this thread for so long??  I use the Revelations Tarot.  I love it because the reversals are illustrated on the cards.  I have used the Mystic Dreamer Tarot, and still have it because I like the artwork.  I've also got the Pagan Tarot (or what's left of it after the cat chewed several cards), the Thoth Tarot, the Rider-Waite, and the Goddess Oracle Cards (just for the pretty pictures).  I wish I could find a copy of the first deck I had because I loved the simple artwork.  Unfortunately, it was a Marseilles-esque deck and I had a hard time reading unillustrated pips.  I can't even remember the name of the deck :(

I've got 51 tarots, more-or-less tarots, and not-tarot oracles ... which is a bit odd because when I do a divination, I use astrology or the Yi Jing. Currently the Petit Lenormand and Kipperkarten are in the post.  :)

My favourites are the Vanessa, Waite-Smith, Steampunk (Moore-Fell), Wood, and Old Path.

I had a Hieronymos Bosch deck once but I never felt comfortable with it so I eventually swapped it away.

 
Strangely enough, the first deck I learned is an anomaly with 81 cards and a number of images that don't follow the normal Rider-Waite pattern (it's the Shapeshifter deck by Conway and Knight).

I also use a Renaissance deck and a Goddess deck (the one by Waldherr).  I had a native American tarot deck for awhile, but it recently decided it wanted to go to a friend who identifies more heavily with the Native American paths.

I have a Gypsy Oracle deck on the shelf, but I haven't learned it yet.

I totally agree about the Bosch deck.  I also know some friends who, totally ill-advisedly, did a reading with an H.R. Giger deck.  Apparently the evening ended... to say the least, badly....

I have a bit of a deck problem. For tarot, I have: Joie De Vivre, Paulina, Olympus, Mythic, and 8 bit. I also have the Enchanted Map Oracle and Fairy Tale Fortune Cards.

I have Storyworld Cards as well, but I wasn't too happy with them as a divinatory tool. Been awhile since I tried though.

Off at home in the States I have a Thoth deck and a Goddess tarot.

I had a Hieronymos Bosch deck once but I never felt comfortable with it so I eventually swapped it away.

This is just trying to remember off the top of my head as I'm away from home at the moment.

Tarot decks I have:
Mystic Faerie Tarot. The is the one I use the most.
DruidCraft Tarot
Animals Divine Tarot. Never used it
Shadowscapes Tarot. Newest one, haven't used it yet.
Tarot of the Secret Forest
Universal Goddess Tarot. One of my early buys. Used it once.
Universal Wait Tarot

Tarot decks I've previously owned:
Cosmic Tarot Very first deck, brought on advice of the lady in the shop. Hated it. Gave it away to my uni pagan society
after several years of it being stuffed in a drawer.
Gilded Tarot. Brought this because everybody was raving about it. Loathed it. Again, this went to the pagan soc.
Llewellyn Tarot. I loved it but never got around to using it. I haven't actually use any tarot cards for over 2 years now. Work colleague was leaving and she loves tarot cards so I gave the deck to her as a leaving present. Sort of regret it now. If I do start reading regularly again I'll buy another set.

Oracle decks I have:
The Green Man Tree Oracle.
Druid Animal Oracle. This was the very first deck I brought. Went into the shop wanting to buy a tarot deck and came out with this instead. I need to buy another set though. I use several of the cards on my altar and I want to get a new set for reading so I don't have to have things missing from my altar when I do one.
Druid Plant Oracle. It annoys me a bit that the card backs for the Animal Oracle and the Plant Oracle are different because I like doing a mass reading with both decks. (Sometimes I even use both of them with the DruidCraft tarot too)

Oracle decks I used to own:
Celtic Oracle. Five hours after this arrived in the post (I'd wanted it for months) it decided it would much rather go live with my friend.

Wishlist :
Ghosts and Spirits Tarot
Fantastical Creatures Tarot.
Wildwood Tarot
Celtic Dragon Tarot

Quote from: EmissaryOfMinong;124999
I used to have the Wildwood Tarot, but it never felt right and I sold it cheap to a pagan friend. Can't say enough about how beautiful the art was, but it wasn't for me. It did great when I did readings for other people, but never worked on my own. I actually got rather sniffy about not wanting to get rid of it, and my Higher Self said "Here, I'll prove it to you. Pull three random cards." I shuffled and did so. I pulled three of the cards that had come up in the most recent reading I'd done for myself. Yep. Time to find a new owner.


I bought a Wildwood yesterday - I bumped into it at the bookstore, the only proper tarot among a slew of angel-and-other-nebulous-beings decks, and it wouldn't let me go without it. There won't be any readings, of course. Even when my path was okay with divination, I was rubbish at it. But I'm still a sucker for tarot art, and this one is simply beautiful.

I've never been comfortable with a Tarot deck, but I do have two non-Tarot oracle decks.

First there's the Amy Brown Faery Wisdom deck that I've had since grade school, and it's definitely my first choice for any sort of reading. While I don't really like the "fairies are innocent creatures that'll never harm you and only serve you!!" attitude of the little booklet that comes with it, I *love* the fact that there are cards called "too much wine" and "coffee break".

Second, I have the Wild Wisdom of the Faery Oracle by Lucy Cavendish, but to be honest, I haven't really used it all that often. The art's pretty, though.

I like to collect decks, but I use them all. I currently have the Rider-Waite Tarot, Revelations Tarot, Vision Quest Tarot, Earth Magic Oracle, Messenger Oracle, and the Halloween Oracle.

Hanging this here: The Druid Animal Oracle deck and (hopefully soon, as I've waited three years to get it because reasons) Shadowscapes Tarot.

While the oracle deck sounds kinda sketchy (and it is, just a bit), I've made a real connection with it, which is nice.
