I want to buy a deck of tarot cards but when I went to the store there was so many, which do I chose?
I went to Barnes & Nobles the other day and in the spiritual section they had box cases of tarot card decks. There was many different varieties from the “A dummy’s guide to Tarot Cards” which included a deck of cards and a mat to other more generic ones. How can I decide which one will be the best buy? Will any be different from others?
Suggestion by Who aren’t you?
The art will be different. They all should be the same number and variety of cards. Though even Barnes & Nobles doesn’t have that great of a selection.
I’d suggest you look at them and find one that comes with some literature on it too, unless you want just to have a deck of cards and no more.

It doesn’t matter, they don’t really do anything. But if you have your heart set on a deck, the the Rider Waite deck.

What exactly are you wanting to do? Have you considered praying? I have generally found that more productive and therapeutic than trying the mystical methods such as tarot cards

Stolen credit card.
Suggestion by Upasakha Jason
It’s not a single card. But if there were, I would suggest 8 of Swords. For major arcana, I would look to the Hanged Man reverse, or the Devil with Justice.

There are two main kinds of cartomancy – one is tarot, the other is gypsy and gypsy is often more associated with playing cards, however there is a few variations on how you can use for tarot. Personally, I prefer the simple, no fuss version.
Cups = hearts
Wands = diamonds
Swords = spades
Coins = clubs
(some variations will have coins and wands swapped over, I only visualise wands/cups as light and swords/coins as dark and more similar to each other – however it’s entirely up to you)
And from there your aces to kings are as always. Because it’s not the “natural” way to read tarot (aka not tarot cards) then more than ever, each card and suit can be designated as you feel the most comfortable with and can “tune” each suit to what you feel it most corresponds to.
