Hey everyone, long time no see.
A lot has happened since I last went on SoM, but that's besides the point.
I am now currently into divination. I've done readings with the deck I have (it's a Faery deck, I'm not quite sure the name, I received it from a good friend), and I'm pretty much a natural at giving a good reading, but only when I look up the book definition.
The problem is, I can't memorize the cards on this deck. It is just not for beginners. It's a beautiful deck, it works great, but I'm just not reading the language of the deck yet. I need a new deck, something that is great for beginners.
I went to a psychic, and he told me to use the Rider Waite deck. I get that it's great for learning on, but I hate that's it Christian based. I am not Christian, I don't won't to learn on a Christian deck.
Sooo, has anybody learned on something they absolutely loved besides Rider Waite? I'm just being so put off by the fact that it's a TAROT deck, made to be Christian based. Christians aren't supposed to dabble in magicks, what are they doing creating something for divination?
I want something that speaks to me, I have pretty good intuition, it shouldn't be a problem. Maybe something simple like RW would be good, but with a more Egyptian/Greek/Celtic/Norse base. Any would work.
Thanks in advance. Merry part and merry meet again my fellow Pagans/Wiccans/Occultists.
