Tarot in Creative Writing

I know this is nothing original, but using Tarot to push along or draw out ideas in creative writing can be a massive blessing.

I just received the Healing Light Tarot by Christopher Butler, and I’m finding that it’s really rocking along with One Thousand Candles.  I find most Tarot decks unsuitable for inspiration when I’m writing because my characters are predominantly not human.  Healing Light is a good compromise because it uses silhouettes of human shapes, but the images are vague enough to allow me to impose a wolf-like being here or a dragon there.


Do you use Tarot for creative writing, and what’s your favourite deck for inspiration?  Do you use different decks for different projects?  And thoughts on oracle decks…?
