Gardnerian influenced deck?

Postby tigerlily » Fri Sep 26, 2014 10:16 pm

I've been having trouble finding a tarot deck that uses the elemental correspondence influenced by Gerald Gardner right now all of my decks are set up with the influence of the Golden Dawn system and now that I'm getting more acquainted with Wicca it's making more sense for me to use a deck with Air being wands and Fire being Swords any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks :)

I'm ok with the GD system myself, so there could be something out there I don't know about. That said, I only use the majors for divination anyway, if you can't find anything, maybe that'll work for you?

I wouldn't give up just yet, but I thought I'd offer an alternative. I've also got an Order meeting Sunday, I'll ask our Tarot reader when I see her.
So with thy all; thou hast no right but to do thy will.
Do that, and no other shall say nay.
For pure will, unassuaged of purpose, delivered from the lust of result, is every way perfect.

Hi tigerlily. I edited your thread title from Gardenian to Gardnerian for the sake of clarity. Gardenias are lovely flowers, and I absolutely love my gardenia scented body mist. If you want to talk about Gerald Gardner's influence, however, I think referencing his name will probably work better. The bank teller had a much easier time looking up my account after she fixed my transposed account numbers. Same type of thing.

Thanks! I did find the Art Nouveau Tarot which is said to be based on Gerald Gardner but its a bit out of my budge right now and without talking to someone who has used it I'd be a bit disappointed if it wasn't what I intended to purchase. I really like using the pips, I have done readings with just majors but it felt a bit off for me maybe if I had a deck that was designed as majors only I'd accept it more since I'm a little OCD when I pull them apart its doesn't feel right :lol:
