Have you tried looking on www.tarot.com? They have a LOT of tarot decks on there for sale.

Suggestion by WebWeaver
You can try Tarot Garden for hard to find decks. If it’s hard to find, I doubt you’ll find it cheap. There is always Ebay.

Looking for a new Tarot deck?
Currently, my main deck is Maxwell Miller’s Universal Tarot, and I recently picked up the Thoth deck and have been using that a lot. (I also have the Dragon Tarot and the Runic Tarot.) However…I’m looking for a very traditional-type deck with older-looking illustrations. I don’t want Rider-Waite (never liked it for some reason), and preferably as few words as possible on the cards–even omission of card names would be fine. Any suggestions?

Suggestion by Tirya
Check out aeclectic.net for tons of decks, with illustrations.

Robin Wood might be worth looking into for you.

Currently, the only accurate books of Tarot are the book of Thoth and the Golden Dawn… Unless there are others that have the numbers right that I don’t know about… There are differences in symbolism as well… I highly suggest the two I listed. There are some great literatures for understanding the Book as well as Qabalistic coorespondences…

how to become an tarot card reader?
well more to the point how to make my own tarot card deck
I already know the basics but I was wondering if I could make my own deck

Suggestion by Jacob
google it

Suggestion by John
Make any deck you want, invent any “rules” you want, tell any stupid “readings” you want.
As long as you SOUND convincing and “mysterious,” some idiot will pay you for “reading.”

Suggestion by Terry
Though I have several hand made decks of thoth I yet to try making one on my own. I would suggest you decide on a theme such as an Aquarian, Nature, or Greek gods.Then use decks or books to make sure you have all the meanings you need in your illustrations. Most hand made decks take about a year to complete.

Does anyone know any tarot card games I can play with a normal deck of cards?

Does anyone know any tarot card games I can play with a normal deck of cards?
You know those games you used to play as a kid? Where you pick a certain number at it would be the age you die, how many boyfriends you had, how many kids. I always thought it was harmless fun, and I would like to see if I can find anything similar or maybe a lil more complex and interesting.

Suggestion by KdS
People can read fortunes with playing cards — in fact it seems to be the slightly older practice. Just do a search online for “fortune telling standard deck” and you’ll get a lot of pages with instructions.

Can messing around with tarot cards encourage bad spirits to enter your life?
This may just be rumors, I’m sure I have heard. I don’t even believe in such things. I’m just curious to hear any stories or experiences.

Suggestion by Kevin
You must believe in it enough if are worried about “bad spirits”.

Suggestion by No Chance Without Jesus
if done properly it is a form of divination and yes….you are asking them to come in and guide you

Like a ouija board, it is rarely done properly, just people playing games

Can you conduct a seance using tarot cards?
As in, instead of a ouija board and if it is possible, how can I do this?

Suggestion by hotmomma
Dude, messing with evil spirits is extremely unwise.

Suggestion by Atom74 – the big finale
Not really. Tarot are pretty much self reflective in things like money and emotions.

Suggestion by Joan, the Retarded Bitċh
Tarot cards were originally for a game that is still played in France today. Do you actually take something like that seriously?

Before the Magician took its place in the Tarot decks, what Major Arcana card was number one?

Cite: The Occult: A History –Colin Wilson
I never use wiki for a source. Too many errors.

Suggestion by down with gdi!
you’ve just given me the compulsion to investigate tarot properly, thanks.

Even if divination is forbidden by christianity. heh.

Suggestion by Reverend Loki
I’m not sure there is an easy, definitive answer to your question. In fact, the Magician isn’t always number one in modern decks.

I highly recommend you read the Wikipedia article on Tarot as a starting point. Afterwards, be sure to check the links at the bottom of that article.

Suggestion by philosophyangel
the cards weren’t always necessarily numbered and some Tarot decks had more cards in them than others. The second card in the earliest surviving Tarot decks (eg, Visconti Sforza) was the Mountebank. This card also was sometimes called in some early decks The Juggler. It then became the Magician. Although cards were used for fortune telling from early times, the Tarot was not primarily used for fortune telling or occult studies until about the 18th century when French esotericists found new meaning and use for a deck of cards called Triomfi (Trumps) or Tarocchi or Tarot, that were used since at least the 14th century to play a game similar to Bridge.

How do I memorize the meanings of cards in my Tarot deck?
I’m trying to learn how to do Tarot card readings but I find it challenging to memorize their meanings. Any tricks or hints?

Suggestion by Chris Ancor
Just do it. Even though it is a waste of time.

Suggestion by Praire Crone
Concentrate on one card at a time. Maybe do one card per day or something like that. Then work with them in groups of no more than two or three for a while until you feel comfortable working with them in the more complicated lay outs. Good luck. I love my tarot cards and collect specialized decks.

Suggestion by No Chance Without a Kiss
You can see the meaning in the symbolism.

what is the cloth called you read tarot cards on?
I’m selling an old (1986) set of tarot cards on ebay and it has a black cloth with 10 places for cards to go. What is the name of this cloth? Anything else I should use to describe it?

Suggestion by Khalin ElvenStone
A diklo.

Diklo = a Gypsy man’s neckerchief, often made of brightly-colored silk, sometimes worn as a bandana

Suggestion by Boudica
Table cloth.

Really, there is no “special” cloth for tarot cards. It is probably something someone made as a teaching tool, and nothing more.

Sorry. You got nothing more than a fancy table cloth.

Suggestion by Naomi
It is usually just called a tarot cloth. You should describe the style it is in (e.g. Rider-Waite). There are different traditions/styles of pictures and it would be useful to know what it is modelled after. Also, make sure that they are tarot cards and not oracle or gypsy cards. 🙂 It won’t take much research to find out the style…just check out a site that sells cards and look at some designs.

Are angel oracle cards the same as tarot cards?
I heard tarot cards are apart of the occult, but what about angel guidance cards, are these part of the occult aswell?

Suggestion by Lightning

Are you sh!tting me? I’m going to go google that now.

Suggestion by Scarlet MacBlu
“Occult” just means “hidden knowledge”… it means that it is mysteries that can’t be fully explained in words and need to be discovered by contemplation and experience. It’s not dangerous or scary.

Angel oracle cards are similar to other “oracle” decks… an oracle deck is different then tarot decks in that they consist of irregular numbers of cards and don’t corrospond to an established system of suits. Tarot decks are all created around the same format of 78 cards (22 “major arcana” and four additional numbered suits). Oracle decks usually have any number of cards from just a few to hundreds and each follows their own unique system.

Oracle cards, like tarot cards, can be used for divination (guessing the future or making prophesies) or for brainstorming etc. Oracles and prophets have long been sought out by people of all religions and walks of life.

Suggestion by Rev. Lynn D.
First of all, occult in not a bad word and Tarot Cards are not to be feared. They have helped many people with problems to find a better path.

Angel cards or any other cards of this type are the same. The bring the same result in a slightly different way. They are nothing to be afraid of either.
