For a deck that's radically different (like the Voyager Tarot) I use the creator's system and try to avoid bringing in anything from other systems. Lately, most of my alternating when reading for clients has been between RWS-based decks, so there isn't much variability in the interpretation. I don't key off the visuals too much, so artwork is secondary to the embedded symbolism.
I see, thanks for your insight. The voyager tarot is based on a different system then?
