Just wondering what the best deck for relationship readings would be?

I usually stick to Rider Waite and Doreen Virtues GODDESS messenger tarot cards.

What do people here use for their tarot readings and do you find them accurate

Just asking because I would like to do relationship readings for people here

I love my tarot decks, had been reading from the witches tarot for a time.

But I find I always return to RWS, as it is my "tell-it-like-it-is" deck.
It can be abit matter of fact and blunt at times, doesn`t like to mince words.
Other decks can be more flowery. lol

the ones i use apart from Rider are

1) Hermetic: eerily accurate and totally gets to the bottom of things. they say it's not good for day-to-day readings, but for situations with a dynamic and tension, feelings etc. it is really good. allegedly based on the deck Crowley pinched Thoth from. You have to invite it in your heart though, might be too opaque otherwise. And it requires a fair bit of research into Golden Dawn

2) Deviant Moon on some occasions. I'd say this one is good for hidden motifs, the unconscious/subconscious, sometimes reveals the dark side too much, sometimes even makes you feel like you're going through someone's dirty linen, nothing remains unexposed. But I am aware that it's strictly advisable if one relates to the imagery. With me it's like i have periods of relating to this deck very much followed by periods of not understanding why i bought it in the first place. It contains photographs of real 19 century cemeteries and asylums blended with the artwork.

I've also recently booked Dreaming Way because I dig South Korean visuality, but haven't tested it just yet. Seems hip and stylish, but it's a clone of Rider like many others out there. I'd say a lot of the time it's about choosing a Rider based deck you find appealing.

Have no experience with decks based on what was originally playing cards like Marseille and Visconti. They are beautiful, but the pip cards lack a visual code, which is why I believe properly esoteric decks just might be a bit better for divination. This last bit is strictly IMO

Tarot de la Nuit (Etsy has it)

is one I've tried, but the one mentioned above by andstuff.
one day I might get that one.

I have The Alchemy of Tarot deck (1977)

- A lot of online shops seem to carry it now.

~ although not romantic, it shows true of heart vs shallow hearted. Til death truly do part - in one card. Gothic is dark yet love is not all roses and sunshine.

My idea of good relationship decks are the various poses of the court cards. So it creates the imagery of the story. There's one that someday I hope to buy, The Backwards Tarot. It tells parts we don't see. As we live in a 3d - there's so much unseen. I feel that deck may be an important relationship staple in collection.
