pagan art journaling {week 27}

It's a bit later in the day than normal, but what can I say? I'm just getting back into the swing of being at work again!

This week's prompt: divination


What forms of divination do you use/prefer? How do you go about learning them? Do you feel naturally better at one form over another?

When I was younger I felt that the runes worked best for me but now I find them a bit too black and white (for me). I love the tarot because it can be so complex and nuanced. And well, I love complicated things, what can I say?

For me, choosing the right deck was quite the process. My first deck was the Haindl tarot deck and I loved it because it has a multicultural, multi tradition feel to it which is what I wanted at the time. I still love this deck but ended up having to replace it when the deck itself started playing tricks on me and eventually a few of the cards just disappeared, never to be found again even though there's no reason for them to be lost!

I replaced it with the Thoth deck earlier this year and it's been an interesting learning curve. I like the deck though, which is interesting to me because my ex from way back when has this deck and I wasn't that fond of it when we were together. I guess sometimes our relationship with the cards and the interpretations change over time.

What about you? What's your favourite form of divination? Or your favourite deck?

  2. Hi, I lean towards runes, but I love the Druid plant oracle too. I must say I want to learn more about it first.
    Have a magical day.

  3. Hi!

    I read tarot on the internet, and I use Vertigo Deck. The Thoth deck is under my possession as well, but it doesn't speak to me.

    I also use Paulina Tarot, Voyager Tarot, and I am in the process of re-learning the Faeries Oracle!
