What are the different types of tarot cards and what different readings do they give?
Hi! I’m a beginner at the world of tarot. I was wondering if someone who knew more about them could explain to me a little about the differences in types of decks and which one would be the best to learn? Thank you!

There are fake readings.
There are scams.
There are lies.
There are delusions.

But mostly there is just stupidity.. and let’s be honest here, to believe that shuffling a bunch of cheap cardboard rectangles is going to tell you the future is freaking STUPID.

I had to play around with decks for years until I found one that really spoke to me: The Cosmic Tarot. I first picked up the Crowley deck, which has much more complex symbols.

Well each deck speaks to everyone differently. Just look at the different decks and when you find one that you like go with it. The tradional deck is the Rider-Waite Deck so any deck that is modeled off that one may be a good one for you to start with.

I want to buy tarot cards, but I don’t even know where to start.?
My friend thinks they’re really cool. Anyway, I want to get some really authentic ones and not cheap looking. If anyone who knows anything about Tarot cards can redirect me to a good site or brand or whatever, I’d really appreciate it!

The beautiful tarot cards of the Thoth deck are the result of a five year collaborative project, between two friends, Aleister Crowley and Lady Frieda Harris. Aleister Crowley recognized the incredible artistic talent of his friend and eventual project patron, Lady Frieda Harris. Aleister Crowley convinced Lady Frieda Harris to paint a tarot deck for him. At the time, Lady Frieda Harris was not familiar with occultism. Lady Frieda Harris, born in 1877, enjoyed a comfortable life in English society. Her husband, Percy, served in the political arena and eventually became a baronet. Still, shortly after meeting Aleister Crowley in 1937, she became his disciple and devoted herself to learning about the deeper meanings behind occult topics. When Aleister Crowley met Lady Frieda Harris, he was 62 years old. By that time, he had been studying occultism for over 40 years and had developed his own school of occult philosophy, Thelema. He also influenced the founding of the occult order named the Mysteria Mystica Maxima, an off shoot of the Ordo Templi Orientis. Aleister Crowley had been a member of other important occult organizations of the time previous to developing his own branch of occultism. In great contrast to the more orderly life that Lady Frieda Harris lived, Aleister Crowley was named “The Wickedest Man In The World” by popular press of the time. Aleister Crowley was accused of being a black magician with an unsavory lifestyle. As an occult practitioner, Aleister

    There are many great websites and stores with hundreds of options for you to choose from. Traditional tarot decks have 78 cards. There are many other types of decks available that do not have the traditional number of cards or the same categories of cards. These are usually called oracle cards. You can even make your own cards!

    Here are my recommendations for choosing a deck:

    See samples of the cards or the entire deck before you purchase. I recommend viewing a very popular website, called Aeclectic.net. It is a great website that lists hundreds of different decks, along with images of the cards and reviews.

    I look at certain cards to get a feel for if the deck coincides with my personal way of viewing the world or not. I chose my current deck, Pearls of Wisdom, after seeing the Death card. It shows a beautiful life transition from a time that is completed energetically, to a new world of brilliant color and abundance. Most other decks show the Grim Reaper, dark colors, and skeletons. Those depictions do not show the beauty of new opportunities and new growth, which is what the Death card means to me. As you are choosing your deck, spend time examining the pictures and seeing if they feel congruent with how you view the world or how you want to view it. Choose a deck that feels good to your Spirit.

    Choose a deck with meaningful, inspiring, and appealing images on each card. Some decks just show three wands on the three of wands card, for example. Other decks will show someone meditating or pondering and a ship for the three of wands. For intuitive reading, the latter style of deck is preferable. Before buying a deck, make sure you look at the numbered cards of the four suits (aka the Pip cards) to make sure they have meaningful images on them.

    You can also choose or make a fun bag or box to keep your cards in. I like this because I feel like I’m opening a present every time. Other people prefer to keep their cards in the original box.
