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.

Quote from: HarpingHawke;174280
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.

 
I used to own the Druid Animal Oracle, but have no idea what happened to it :( I went through a fairly hasty move years back and a few of my things got lost in the shuffle. I never did use the animal oracle for divination, but found the beautifully illustrated cards useful in meditation and altar decoration.

There are so many hundreds of gorgeous decks out there. I'm curious about which ones you use - just one, or a collection?

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 have the Raider Waite Tarot since 1971 which is my favorite.
The US games system Tarot game set w/booklet.
I have Floral wisdom oracle Lo Scarabeo. Cupid Cards. Green Man tree oracle cards. Gypsy witch cards. LeNormand cards. Pamela Colman Smith commemorative set.:)
Karma cards. I Ching cards. Rune cards.

I have thought about maybe buying the Klimt gold Tarot.

I'm all about the Lenormand cards and have several decks. My current favorites are the Zingdoodle Lenormand, the Lenormand de Marseilles, the Celtic Lenormand, and Chronata's Minute Lenormand. But I have a lengthy wish list, as well.  :-D
 
I also use ogham. I have a wonderful set of stones my husband made for me and just got a set of staves, each made from the kind of wood represented by the symbol.

I have a number of other kinds of decks and tools, but I mostly use Lenormand cards and ogham.

Quote from: Aranel;129213
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

 
Updated list (there are three decks that I missed off in my previous post.)  

Tarot decks I have:
Mystic Faerie Tarot.
DruidCraft Tarot
Animals Divine Tarot.
Shadowscapes Tarot.
Tarot of the Secret Forest
Universal Goddess Tarot.
Universal Waite Tarot
Llewellyn Tarot
Ghosts and Spirits Tarot
Fantastical Creatures Tarot.
Deviant Moon Tarot
Steampunk Tarot
Legacy of the Divine Tarot
Llewellyn's Classic Tarot
Sacred Sites Tarot
Joie de Vivre Tarot
Chrysalis Tarot
Tarot of the Hidden Realm
Tarot Nova
Cachet Tarot
Tarot of the Old Path
Forest Folklore Tarot
Silver Witchcraft Tarot
Tarot Illuminati





Oracle decks I have:
The Green Man Tree Oracle.
Druid Animal Oracle.
Druid Plant Oracle
Heart of Faerie Oracle
Enchanted Map Oracle
Secret Language of Animals Oracle
Animal Spirits Knowledge Cards
Goddess Knowledge Cards
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards
Gilded Reverie Lenormand


I don't use any of them apart from the Druid Animal Oracle (which is my go-to deck), Mystic Faerie and Shadowscapes. Even then, I might do a reading once or twice a year. I just like to collect them.

I have the Deviant Moon deck as my only one right now. I love it, and they even have a borderless one available now!

As for ones I am eyeballing, I would love to get either the Night Sun Tarot or the Tarot Mucha. :)

I still have my Crow's Magick and Legend decks.  I've been gifted a set of universal Waite not too long ago-it was donated to the store I work at and the boss doesn't like this kind of 'stuff' being sold...  I've also added to my collection: Lo Scarabeo's Royo deck, Dark Fairytale and Dark Angels Tarots.  They all screamed at me to take them home.  My hands get all tingly using them and I love the art work :)

OK. That's it. I'm fricking DONE with tapatalk! On my screen, there's a quote. I just checked and it's there.

I'm unlikely to be around much til June, now, since I apparently have to be on a real computer to post and I'm going to be spending the next month working in a theater.

:-(

P.S. Randall, I'm sorry!  I truly believed there was a quote in that post. I STILL see a quote in that post. But if y'all don't, there's obviously something wrong with my app. Or phone. Or both.

You know I fully support the quote rule, and since my technology apparently doesn't, I'll have to change my technology before I post here again.

I sincerely apologize for violating the rules.

This induced me to check it on my desktop computer (Linux/Firefox) as well as the lappy I use for most of my Cauldroning (MacBook/Safari). Nope, no quote, not even a Vanishing Quote Code one, on either system.

That is seriously weird, that your Tapatalk is showing success in quoting even three days later. Now I'm wondering what other Tapatalk users see.

I'm on tapatalk just now and I don't see a quote in Aster's post. I'm wondering if the quote will appear in mine when I hit reply.

Yours is fine - and I certainly haven't noticed a sudden spate of Tapatalk quotefails other than the problems Aster is having with it recently.

Thanks for providing that perspective, Roc. My best guess at this point is that Aster's Tapatalk is somehow saving the quote to its own memory, even though it's not posting it. But I'm no expert on anything relevant, least of all Tapatalk.

I have a good many. For readings I mostly use either my Dragon Tarot or my Shadowscapes deck. Shadowscapes is my workhorse, but the Dragon Tarot is really growing on me, and I use it more and more. I also have Victoria Frances's Tarot Favole, and the Hanson Roberts Deck. Finally, I have the Fenestra Tarot, which I pretty much never use.

I'll start with the Trio.

Rider-Waite-Smith - Had it for years, use it all the time. It's the go-to deck for parties and events, so consequently it is filthy and has been soaked in several different kinds of alcohol. The Empress card also has a weird heat stain on it.

Thoth - When I was quite young, I looked at this deck with a lot of eye-rolling, because everyone I had met who used it was a dude who wanted to be the next Crowley. Years later, I'd stopped assuming Thoth = total douche, but had somehow decided it was a deck I should 'work up' to because of its infamy. That changed when my mother bought a copy because "it's pretty." Out of sheer incredulous jealousy I bought my own. It's one of my most frequently used decks now.

Vertigo - A million years ago, this deck was a limited edition. I got my copy off of eBay for I think sixty bucks? Might have been as high as eighty. Anyway, the cards were huge and not laminated and almost everyone I read for didn't like how dark they were. I loved them and used them all the time. Years later, my brother-from-another-mother bought me a copy of the reissued cards, which are smaller and laminated so that they'll last longer. This deck rounds out the top three most used.

The other decks I currently own are:
Tarot de Marseilles -I'll be damned if I know what version offhand, but the box is all in French. It was five bucks and I bought it because I was teaching a class and wanted it for comparison.
Deviant Moon Tarot
Archeon Tarot
Golden Tarot
Revelations Tarot (purchased to try and get into reversals. Didn't work.)
Fantastical Tarot
Ancient Egyptian Tarot
Victoria-Regina Tarot I wish these cards were a bit smaller - they're a nightmare to shuffle.

I used to have more, but I purged in my last move. The Revelations deck I've never gelled with, so I'm thinking of offering it up to my friends and seeing if anybody wants it. The Archeon and Fantastical I almost never use, so I may do the same with them - I think I'm holding onto them out of nostalgia.

My current wishlist is pretty short:
New Wave Tarot - I couldn't love this more if I tried. Andrew Eldritch is the Hermit.
The Wild Unknown Tarot - I saw this one all over the internet for a while, and then two of my friends bought it. I dig the art so I'm curious to see if I could actually read them.

Sorry about not replying sooner.  This is the first chance I've had to be on a real computer.

My phone conitinued to show a quote on that post -- until I had to reboot it last night.  Now there's no quote.

So I suspect there's some kind of problem between my phone and whatever version of tapatalk I have.  Which isn't really a surprise, given that my phone is about 3 years old now and dying in so many ways.  The whole family needs new phones -- we're hoping to take care of that with a chunk of money we have coming from my husband's contract negotiation.  If that ever ends.

Until I have a new phone, though, I'm not going to post via tapatalk.  I can read threads on my phone, but posting will have to wait until I'm at a computer.  So I won't be very visible for the next few weeks.

I have the Druidcraft  Tarot, the Steampunk Tarot by Barbara Moore, and the Fantastical Creatures Tarot.

I've also seen the Wild Unknown Tarot, and I really do love the art. Though, I'm not sure if I'll get it or not, due to expense and actually using the deck. The Wildwood might be another one I'd enjoy, as well as the Druid Animal Oracle and possibly the Druid Plant Oracle.
