The ORIGINAL RIDER WAITE TAROT DECK by AE Waite. (originally published in 1910) is one of the most popular tarot decks in use for divination in the English speaking world. The cards were drawn by illustrator Pamela Coleman Smith. from the instructions of the academic A.E. Waite, and pubished by the Rider company.. Whist images are simple, the
details and backgrounds feature abundant symbolism. The christian imagery of previous card decks was toned down, for instance the `Pope` became the `Hierophant` and the `Papess` became the High Priestess. In the Minor Arcana the symbols used were influenced by the 19th century magician and occultist Eliphas Levi

52 Cards 60 x 96mm & Multi-lingual Guidebook (English, Spanish, French, German & Italian).
The Every Day Oracle is, according to the booklet, an authentic Italian Oracle. There are 52 cards, just as in a playing card deck. In fact, the cards are all named as such: Ace of hearts, Queen of Spades, Three of Clubs, etc. However, there are no suit designations on the cards, just a letter and a number. The numbers indicate what number the card is, 1–10, and the Jacks, Queens, and Kings are 11, 12, and 13. The letter indicates which suit the card belongs to. The letter, however, correspond to the Italian names of the suits: C = hearts, F = clubs, Q = diamonds, and P = spades. Having the card suit and number will let you look up the meanings, as that is how they are organized in the accompanying booklet.
This deck is great for fortune-telling. You can just look up the meanings or figure out the obvious meanings by the pictures on the cards. The images are even easier to read than Lenormand because there is slightly more activity and the images are more literal.
Seriously, if you like oracles and are interested in one that is easier to read than a Lenormand, you should give this deck a try
Oracle cards are a set of cards used for divination. They are not divided up into suites like tarot–in fact, most oracle deck don’t have any divisions at all. Each card has a picture and a name, and nothing else. No suites, no elemental associations, no numerological or astrological associations aside from what’s given to the reader in the painting itself. There is nothing outside of the oracle card to tell you what it means. What I mean by that is, there is no association telling you that pentacles is connected to earth element and implies stability and fertility. What’s in the picture is all you get to figure out the card.
How do you use these cards? Pretty much like you would use a tarot deck. You decide on a layout–one card, yes/no, three cards, crosses or lines, etc.–and phrase a question. Shuffle how you wish and then lay out or pull the cards. There are no reversals in oracle cards as far as I can tell. Reversals would strike me as rather pointless, since oracle cards tend to emphasize positive occurrences by their very nature. Then you read the cards to find the answer.
Because oracle cards don’t have number, elemental, or suit references to help read them, the reader is forced to be more intuitive in order to gain insight into an answer. Unlike tarot, oracle cards tend to emphasize positive thought. You won’t find something like the swords suit in an oracle card deck. There are some cards that look negative on the surface, but if you look closely, they are actually framing that negativity differently than expected so that it is positive. Which is very, very interesting to work with.
THE TAROT of the OLD PATH:- Has emerged in recognition of the many card readers who are witches and initates of wicca, often referred to as the craft, the old religion or the old path. A coven of eight came together to act as contributors and advisers for the the creation of this deck. It is described as a magic Tarot of the female energies and wisdom. the instruction booklet is wriiten by Howard Rodway. The artist Syliva Gainsford a member of the fellowship of Isis has contributed her own card interpretation together with the langauge of flowers which compliment the cards. Syliva dictated the Lovers card to the romantic novelist Barbara Cartland.

The Tarot of Marseille
The Tarot Deck was probably invented in northern Italy in the 15th century and introduced into southern France when the French conquered Milan and Piedmont in 1499. The antecendents of the Tarot de Marseille would then have been introduced into southern France at around that time. The game of Tarot died out in Italy but survived in France and Switzerland. When the game was reintroduced in northern Italy, the Marseille designs of the card were also introduced to the region.
The Native American Tarot is drawn from the four corners of North America: Eastern Nations, Plains Nations, Southwest Nations and Northwest Nations. The cards are informed by a variety of Native American tribes including Apache, Arapaho, Cherokee, Cheyenne, Chippewa, Comanche, Hopi, Huron, Inuit, Iroquois, Kiowa, Navaho, Papago, Pima, Pueblo, Shawnee, Sioux, and Yaqui. This deck is not limited to the standard interpretations of traditional illustrations, but reflects the spirit and meaning of the Native American Way.
Inspired by the fusion of European and Native American ideals, the card titles and illustrations are modified in both obvious and subtle ways. Comprised of 78 cards, divided into 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana. The four suits of the Minor Arcana are Blades, Pipes, Vessels, and Shields.
