Default Tarot/oracle cards

Who all here reads tarot and /or oracle cards? I know of one person right off the bat But who else does? And do any of you have favorite decks, and why? Here is list of my decks:

Moonology oracle cards

Modern Witch tarot
Halloween tarot (I LOVE these)
basic Rider Waite Smith tarot
A weird Chinese tarot deck that uses cute little girls as their imagery on everything, I don't actually use these
A rider waite smith deck that is iridescent also Chinese I think
Wild Unknown tarot
Ophidia Rosa tarot
Golden Tarot

Wild unknown and Ophidia Rosa are really different, and have to be read very intuitively.

I haven't done it in a couple of dogs' ages (depends on breed ), but when I did I mostly used the basic Rider-Waite. Occasionally I dipped into Animal Spirits or runes. The deck I'd love to get hold of is Piers Anthony's Cluster Tarot; I don't know if that's actually been produced commercially.

The Cat People tarot is my best deck.

The Robin Wood tarot is fantastic.

I've also had good experience with the Russian Tarot of St. Petersburg.

As for the Medieval Scapini, that deck is simply beautiful.

I've only got one deck these days - the Celtic Tarot by Julian de Burgh - but I used to have a Rider Waite deck, and some obscure Spanish deck that gave me the creeps the first time I used them. The Rider Waite deck was a gift that I later regifted when I was downsizing my belongings in preparation for a cross-country move.

The Alice in Wonderland deck. It was given to me by a GF of the time

In recent years, I've started collecting playing cards. I generally go for ones that have more unique designs for the face of the cards in addition to an interesting back.

I should probably get my hands on a few Tarot sets. The only one I have is one that came with my pre-order of the video game Dishonored.

Very interesting answers, it's cool how everyone has such different decks, most of which I haven't heard of which is saying something!

I have a tarot app on my phone. In think it uses the standard Rider-Waite deck.

Most apps will use Rider-Waite -- I gather the images are either public-domain or public-access.

I've always wanted to make my own deck but I'm not a very good artist and my photos are okay for Facebook.

The other idea I had once was making an audio tarot deck. Just make 78 soundbytes with some nice music and a decent voice actor and sell it as an album on iTunes. User just has to hit shuffle and visualize the placement of the cards themselves.
