What tarot card deck is best for a beginner ?
I’ve been interested in Tarot cards for a couple of months and I was wondering what Tarot card deck is the best one for beginners, or one that is easy to understand.

Thanks

Its a piece of paper it has no bearing on undetermined future events.

1. Tarot cards are very bad
2. they are against God
3. That silly magic stuff doesn’t work.
4. You’d rather use tarot cards than ask God for help?

Suggestion by tai D
find one with artwork that speaks to you. A good tarot deck should have the cards’ meanings embedded in the imagery.

How do you play with tarot cards? And, is the tarot card deck at barnes and nobles any good?
I mean, i’m really interested in this predicting the future stuff and i’m thinking about buying this tarot deck at barnes and nobles store. Can anyone teach me how to play it?

Well, I’m not sure that fortune tellers would describe what they do as playing tarot – that phrase is usually used with reference to the games of tarot. Tarot cards were originally created for playing card games – which are still played throughout continental Europe today. Fortune telling with tarot didn’t really start until the end of the 18th century, gaining popularity in France during the 19th century and then spreading to English speakers in the 20th century.

If you want to learn how to play tarot then you can check these sites:

If you want cards to play the games, then you will want at least a Tarocco Piedmontese and a French suited pack (Jeu de Tarot). They can be purchased here:

If you want cards for fortune telling, there doesn’t seem to be any best pack. The cards usually sold for this have been heavily redesigned to both reflect a multitude of occult and spiritual beliefs as well as to aid fortune tellers. Just pick the pack that looks nice to you.

Personally, I don’t believe that the future can be known, much less from a pack of playing cards. The games on the other hand, I can recommend as some of the best in the world. But, however you use the cards, I hope you enjoy them.

You don’t really “play” Tarot when wanting to find out the future–the term is divination. I don’t know what particular deck you are looking at at Barnes and Noble, but I suggest the “Rider Tarot Deck” (aka Rider-Waite-Smith deck, aka Rider-Waite deck) as your first deck as there are pictures on all of the cards which can help you learn how to read them. My favorite version is the one in a yellow box with the Magician on the front as that an “The Original Rider Waite Tarot Pack” are the only two of the Rider-Waite-Smith versions that I pay attention to as I find the others to be complete clones–and many are. However, you must connect with the artistry of the cards. Secondly, I suggest a decent book, and I often suggest the book “Power Tarot” for those just starting out as it puts definitions in different categories (i.e. romance, work, finances, etc.). However, you’ll soon grow out of that book, and you’ll probably find out you have different or expanded meanings for the cards, but that book is meant to help you start out. Also know that Tarot is something that is studied, and I’ve been reading cards for 15+ years and I learn new things all the time, and any reader that tells you otherwise is either lying to you or isn’t a good reader in the first place. So know it’s a life long practice–or will be if you continue to persue it. Hope that helps…

Hello Dani

You do not ‘play’ Tarot, you consult, meditate upon & study Tarot.

It can take many years to fully grasp them.

Any deck which you feel drawn to will be ideal.

Yu-gi-oh starter pack with Dark Magician!

Suggestion by Alex
The Rider-Waite-Smith deck is the most popular, and the one that most closely resembles the cards used for divination in the 18th century. However, since Tarot is more of a parlor game than a true predictor of your life circumstances, go with the deck you like the best.

    Rider-Waite is the basic one. You can sometimes find decks with the meaning of the card printed on the card itself (saves memorization). Otherwise, I really like the Celtic Dragon and American Indian decks. A lot of people like The Tarot of the Cat People, too.

    Rider-Waite is a great one to start out with. Do your homework before buying cards. If you’re just now getting into it, look for ones that have the number and suit of the card on the face, that helps immensely. Tarot decks have 78 cards in a deck. Anything more or less and you’re probably looking at an oracle deck. Look for 78. Also, look for ones that fit comfortably in your hands. My first deck was enormous and I couldn’t shuffle them for anything, so they were designated to their pretty little box, never to be brought out again.

    Here’s a good place to start looking: http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/

    There’s a lot of decks AND good info on that site.

    Rider-Wate was the most suitable for me when I was a beginner. There are so many guide books and information for it. And I think, if you work with well known deck, you can get more assists and useful information from people than any other deck. This is my reason to recommend it.

    WHICH deck? They carry a lot of different ones.

    The best one I have is the Robin Wood tarot, and my second favorite is the Animal Lords Tarot. Both are easy to read.

    There are lessons over at http://www.learntarot.com

    The Rider-Waite deck is the most popular deck in America, and one of the oldest. It was first published in 1909. The symbolism used has become so standard that many other decks are just “prettied up” version of this one.

    The illustrations are very helpful in interpreting the cards, unlike some others that feature things like gemstones.
    If you are looking for a beginners deck, this is the best.

    *** w95 11/1 pp. 6-7 The Truth About Angels ***
    Approach to Angels or to Demons?
    Much of the current angel movement dabbles in the occult. Consider Marcia’s experience. “From September to December 1986,” she says, “I began to receive messages from ‘beyond the third dimension.’ I saw apparitions and had incredible ‘past life’ dreams. I contacted friends who had died and had many other psychic experiences in which I knew things about people I had just met. I also became blessed with the gift of automatic writing and transmitted messages from discarnates. Some, whom I have never met in their earthly lives, would deliver messages to others through me.”
    The use of divination as a means to “communicate” with angels is not uncommon. One source outrightly encourages its readers to employ rune stones, tarot cards, I Ching coins, palmistry, and astrology. “Allow your inner knowing self to lead you to the right oracle,” the authors write, “and trust that an angel will meet you there.”
    According to the Bible, however, whatever ‘meets you there’ certainly is not one of God’s angels. Why? Because divination stands in open defiance of God, and true worshipers—in heaven and on earth—have nothing to do with it. Why, in Israel divination was a capital offense! “Everybody doing these things is something detestable to Jehovah,” the Law stated.—Deuteronomy 13:1-5; 18:10-12.
    “An Angel of Light”
    It should not surprise us that the Devil can make divination appear beneficial, even angelic. The Bible says that Satan “keeps transforming himself into an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:14) He can even fabricate portents and then make them come true, deceiving onlookers into thinking that the omen is from God. (Compare Matthew 7:21-23; 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12.) But all of Satan’s works—no matter how virtuous or how sinister they may appear—serve one of two purposes: to turn people against Jehovah or simply to blind their minds so that ‘the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ might not shine through.’ (2 Corinthians 4:3, 4) This latter method of deception is often the most effective.
    Consider the Bible account of a servant girl in the first century. Her predictions brought much gain to her masters. For many days she followed the disciples, saying: “These men are slaves of the Most High God, who are publishing to you the way of salvation.” Her words were true. Yet, the account tells us that she was possessed, not by an angel, but by “a demon of divination.” Eventually, Paul “turned and said to the spirit: ‘I order you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.’ And it came out that very hour.”—Acts 16:16-18.
    Why did Paul expel this spirit? After all, it provided much income to the masters of the demon-possessed girl. With supernatural powers, the servant girl may have told farmers when to plant, maidens when to marry, and miners where to look for gold. Why, this spirit even moved the girl to speak some words of truth, publicly praising the disciples!
    Nevertheless, it was “a demon of divination.” As such, it had no right to make proclamations about Jehovah and his provision for salvation. Its complimentary speech, perhaps uttered to lend credence to the servant girl’s predictions, distracted onlookers from Christ’s true followers. With good reason, Paul warned the Corinthians: “You cannot be partaking of ‘the table of Jehovah’ and the table of demons.” (1 Corinthians 10:21) Not surprisingly, first-century Christians destroyed all their books that were associated with divination.—Acts 19:19.
