Tarot card deck differences? ?
I have bought a book on tarot reading and now want to buy a deck of 78 cards. There are so many different ones… is there any difference in them or is it just the pictures?

Suggestion by you dont need to know my name
its just the pictures but if i were you i would buy the cool cards.

Suggestion by SadharaSatguru

There are hundreds of decks out there, all wrote on different philosophies.

The most common are the Rider Waite, but go to a deck your drawn to!


see profile 🙂

Some of them use different terms as well, and I’ve also seen some with different symbolism than a standard deck. For example, my Art Nouveau deck has Coins and Staves instead of Pentacles and Wands. I think some of Major Arcana cards have different names as well. My Manga tarot uses a lot of Japanese or Japanese-inspired symbolism that doesn’t appear in other decks.

I say just buy whatever deck seems the best to you. If you would prefer to start with something exactly like what your book talks about, see if there’s a specific one mentioned in your book and if you can get it. If you’re not bothered by your deck and your book being a little different, then just spend some time looking at all the different decks available and see which one(s) you want. You can have as many as you can handle — I have three and would love more, and many of my friends have multiple decks too, though plenty of people just have one.

What the death card from the tarot card deck mean?
Just curious

Suggestion by Desirae
The end of something not necessarily a life either.

Suggestion by ALEX
You just paid $ 20:00 for nothing.

I wish I could post a picture of this card from my deck. It shows a skeletal knight on a horse with a large sword blocking your life path. You have to get past this guy in order to grow, but you have no way of defeating him. You are just a weaponless pilgrim on a journey. You can detour, or hide or even retreat, but Death will be there waiting. To move on, you must approach Death and let him strike you down. You will wake up further down your path with Death behind you. There is no other way.

I practical terms, this means you must let a part of you die in order to grow. Just like a snake sheds its skin, you must leave behind thing which you have out grown. This isn’t nearly as grim as it may sound. Maybe you know twentysomething slackers who don’t want to get a real job and leave home. Or people in their late 20’s who still act like college kids, partying it up every weekend.

What is it that is holding you back, AMS? Is there a part of your life which must be shed in order to continue growing? I can only ask the questions, you must answer them.

In a Tarot deck of 78 cards, what are the odds of pulling the same card twice in a row?
Mathematically, it’s 1:78 to pull a specific card. But what are the odds of pulling the SAME card twice in a row?

Suggestion by Dr D
(1/78)^2 = 1 : 6084
= 0.0164 %

Suggestion by Jake B
it depends if u put the card back in the deck or not

Maybe some useful information.
useful websites.
Maybe someone
could tell me the “NO’S”
for Tarot.
I just want to learn more about it and
I want to to start learning how to do it.

Suggestion by Miss 6
Everyone has their own way of tuning into the deck for them. My advice would be for you to go to the bookstore and study the decks that they have there. If you find a deck that “speaks” to you then get it. Most decks come with a companion book that goes over the meanings to the cards as well as the spreads you can use.
Believe or not a pretty good book is the Idiot’s Guide I know some people who have it and they really like it.

Suggestion by philebus
OK. There are broadly two main uses for tarot cards and the answer to your question depends on how you choose to use them.

The original use, unfamiliar to the English speaking world but popular throughout continental Europe, is for a family of card games. In fact, the picture cards of tarot were the first trump cards! These games are all what we call point-trick games, this means that like bridge, whist, or spades, players win cards in tricks – but unlike those games, different cards carry different point values and so it is not the number of tricks won that wins you the game but the number of card points contained within them. There are two types of tarot pack used for playing games, there are those that feature the old traditional Italian designs, and there are those that have French suits with various themed trump suits (such as Asterix comics, or local scenery, ect).

For rules on how to play the games and where to buy the cards for them:


The other – and in English speaking countries, the most familiar – use for tarot is for divination. This practice only dates to the end of the 19th century in France.

There are a huge number of methods offerend for this use, so I would suggest looking here:


You will find a lot of useful material along with a friendly forum.

Best Tarot Card deck for me?
I want one that will show every aspect of life, not just for like love or family or anything. Whats the best deck for me?
And by the way, i don’t know much about tarot card reading but i DO NOT want a beginners card deck. And i would prefer to buy it at Books A Million, or waldem (spelling?) books.
Thank you!

Suggestion by Raith the Glitter Ninja
There aren’t really such thing as a “beginners deck”. Beginner books, yes; beginner decks, no.

You could always go with the classic Rider-Waite deck.

Suggestion by hudsongray
You need to look at the art to see what you’re drawn to. There are several REALLY good sites for that. Plus reviews on the deck.

This site is great–you pick the style of deck first, then look through the selections. Cards are compared side by side.

http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/ This site has reviews and decks. You can search by deck or by artist.

www.tarotgarden.com you put in the theme you would like in the search box on the top left, she’s got 6,000 decks for sale.

Tarot Passages stopped adding decks a while back, but they do show cards in the deck, just use the list and click through.http://www.tarotpassages.com/deckrev.html

Suggestion by Matt
I recommend the Crowley deck…but honestly you should see them (and handle if possible) yourself and see what draws you.

I had a Tarot deck once but the first card I pulled was The Devil card.?

tarot card decks

I had a Tarot deck once but the first card I pulled was The Devil card.?
Okay so my older sister got me into the whole Tarot readings and stuff from a young age and so she said I was going to be a very spiritual person like her one day. Well I bought a Tarot Card deck a while back and waited for the next morning when my mind was ready for such a thing. I know that a good mood effects such things. But when I pulled my very first card at random it turned out to be The Devil card. I didn’t think much of it at first and went through my day giving myself and my serious friends tarot readings. The readings turned out to be very precise and accurate. I was really happy. My sister might have been right about having a powerful spirit for this sort of thing. Well, later that day my teacher(A mega Catholic) said something about the cards being evil. this was nonsense to me because I grew up around that sort of thing. So, I went home and talked to my dad about it and he said using Tarot Cards are like using Ouija Boards. That they bring in evil entities and such and that i’m using the devils help to see into the future. This made me think about the time I pulled The Devil card. I was wondering if I should think of that as a bad omen or something. And I know its only a matter of opinion if they are evil or not between religions but truth me told I’m a little scared of Ouija Boards and bringing in evil whatever. So help if ya can. Shed some light upon this for me if you will.
P.S. I threw away the Tarot Cards after my father told me that as to close any doors I might have opened into the evil spirit realm or whatever. I really think they were awesome and I had no bad feelings what so ever about them.

Suggestion by Reverend Red Mage
Tarot cards, Ouija Boards, astrology, etc.

It’s all bullshit, for lack of a better term. Just discard your worry and superstition about it.

Suggestion by House iz in da Hizzy!
I was playing poker with tarot cards and I got a royal flush and all my friends died.

Suggestion by Gentlelamb
Christians consider it immoral to seek supernatural assistance outside of God. According to those moral standards, any supernatural being that is not a servant of God is necessarily evil; at the very least, it smacks of idolatry; at the worst, it relies on the power of the Devil instead of the power of God….

What does it mean that I get the Moon tarot card whenever I ask about my finances?
I have a tarot deck, and whenever I ask about finances or getting a new job, I always get the Moon card. What does that mean?

Suggestion by Marky Mark

Suggestion by RandomChick4468
Moon card eh? Cancer rules the Moon and they can handle money very well. It probably means you won’t have to worry much when it comes to financing.

Suggestion by George
The Moon is a warning that all is not what it seems.
It’s also a card of change.

Also be careful that Tarot isn’t warning you of something else.

I’ve seen in my own readings, and readings of other people, Tarot trying to warn about something else and ignoring the question if there’s something more important you need to know.

What is your favorite Tarot Card Deck?

What is your favorite Tarot Card Deck?
what is your favorite deck to use and why?

Suggestion by The Great Gazoo
The Flintstones Tarot.

Its the only one that really works.

Suggestion by Logic / Reason / Evidence
Alister Crowley had a beautiful pack designed for him.

Suggestion by George
The Tarot of the Old Path.

It’s a Wicca Tarot deck, although I’m not a wicca follower I love the imagery.

I think thats the important factor when choosing your deck.
You need to go with the one that feels right for you.

I like that the Tarot of the Old Path has “Temptation” instead of “The Devil”, “The Guide” instead of “Temperance”, “The Close” instead of “Death” and “Karma” instead of “Judgement”.

It’s a little less Christian in it’s symbology although The Lovers, which is probably the best I’ve seen, has more of an Adam and Eve theme than most other decks.
However it doesn’t have the serpent as you would see in the Rider-Waite-Smith Lovers

The more you look at the imagery, learn the story and origins behind each picture, understand the numerology in numbering of the cards etc the more critically you can look at Tarot decks and the more you can divine when using them.

A good tarot card deck in Las Vegas?
Exactly what the question says.
Where I could buy a good tarot deck here in Las Vegas?

Suggestion by sybil_the_soothsayer
Check out the local new age bookstores…you can look at a lot of decks on the site below and also, order from there, if you wish…

Suggestion by catlover
i have no idea

Suggestion by majiklee21
I dont know about las vegas exactly – but i know every major bookstore now stocks them and a variety of them aswell. Otherwise, i would suggest buying from a reputable seller on the net, or looking up in local yellow pages for – “new age” listings, which may give you a selection of magick stores in your area, from which you should be able to procure many a selection of tarot cards and other paraphenalia. if you are novice, i suggest the “Rider thwaite” pack, as its symbols are easier seen, than it would be in say an artistic pack.

blessed be )o(
