Buying tarot cards which and where ?
I’ve always wanted to learn about tarot cards and I would like to make a move and buy some.
Which brand should I buy ?
Where do I get them ?
Should I get a seperate book to learn how to use them ?

Go to http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/ as it has a galore of various decks and previews with summaries and reviews. You can browse the decks to find one that feels right to you. You can connect through the colors or imagery of the cards.
This site also has links to where you can buy the deck you choose.
The rider waite version is one of the most common decks. However, it is better to use a deck that you feel personally drawn to in order to have a deeper connection and greater results.
Some people rely on the books, while others never look at them. It is your choice. I like to have the accompanying book available for my reference when dealing with a new deck, but that is my personal preference. Most decks if bought new will come with the book already.

Find a bookshop or an on-line supplier, look at the pictures until you find one with to which you feel drawn and buy it. It should be fairly easy to get hold of some and more places sell them. Books are usually included, though sometimes they are sold separately. Books give you ideas on what spreads ( pattern of drawing and laying down the cards and what each one means in that position) to use. Check whether the cards you choose all have pictures as some packs have picture cards plus symbols as in playing cards, others are all pictorial. I think the latter give you more ideas as you are meant to use your own intuition and not simply rely on the meaning given by any accompanying book.
Just one point though, it is not easy to read for yourself and do not use them as a crutch for living your life. They are an aid, a tool, not designed to tell you what to do and take away your free will. Plus, if you read for others, make sure you tell them it is for entertainment only and that readings are a guide to the future, not a definite answer as to what will happen.

If you are new to the Tarot you should start out with a good classic deck as a base in learning. The Rider-Waite deck is such a deck.
Never buy a deck you haven’t held in your hand–box and all is okay. You should feel that it is right for you. You can do this at many of the large book stores.
Take the deck home and begin, but if the instructions that come with the deck confuse you, don’t give up, return to the store and get a book that is specific to the classic meanings and layouts.
Does anyone know where I can get a bulk order of tarot cards cheap?
I need them as party favors. I would appreciate if I didn’t have to spend a fortune!
I am not a beginner. I have several decks of my own. My question is where I can get a large amount of decks cheap for a party i am throwing.

if you are a beginner in tarot, better get a book on tarot with pictures of the tarot cards and the explanations.

Borders book store.
What religion, or Where, Do Tarot Cards Stem From?
Does tarot stem from wicca? and if so, why is there a ‘devil’ card if wiccans do not believe
in satan? Also, an angel appears to be shown in the ‘Temperance’ card, and angels are beings that correspond with christianity.
