What are the different types of tarot cards and what different readings do they give?

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!

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 …
