I have twenty of them – they’re referred to as packs and not decks – but that’s not a big deal. I use them now and then for entertaining guests and friends – they cannot be used to accurately and precisely predict the future, but it’s fun to do readings. Mine follow several different traditions, including Native American – but again, nobody should bet the rent on the predictions that Tarot readers give. Or on the I Ching, for another.

Actually, I work with Wicca cards, they are called the Well Worn Path. I think they are more accurate, and a lot easier to learn than the major and minor arcaina in Tarot.

Three – Rider/Waite – Arthurian Tarot – Mage the Ascension
All were purchased by me..

All three are based off of the Rider/Waite deck, but the Arthurian has a bit of Celtic undertones to it, and the Mage the Ascension deck is from the White Wolf games, Mage the Ascension.

what type of Tarot card deck should a beginner start out with?
i am a 16 year old girl who is interested in learning on how to use Tarot cards but i don’t know how to use them but i have heard that their are certain types that a beginner should use please help me if u know ^_^

Suggestion by Haley F
Well, to begin with, this is probably the wrong category. Ah, well.

It has been said that the Rider-Waite deck is a good deck to start out with, although you generally should just go to a deck that attracts you. Whether it is simply the deck itself or the images or even something deeper, it is up to you. Or, as an alternative, you can create your own.

Suggestion by Astro Lady
If you’re drawn to colors and bright images, use the Crowley THOTH cards. They’re eye-catching and don’t have many figures of humans in the deck, except for the Court cards.

Other than that, most amateurs start off wit the Universal Rider-Waite deck. The original deck has been modified several times (some think it’s quite dull and boring) and now there’re the Radiant Rider-Waite and Smith-Waite decks which are excellent for beginners as they do not deviate much from the original.

Suggestion by THeEMraldAnSWEr
the original rider waite deck
is good i guess

what is the best tarot card deck to buy?
i’ve always really wanted to buy myself a tarot card deck and learn how to read them, mostly just out of interest and curiosity, but i’ve come to realize that there are many types of decks out there. i’m seeking both personal and professional advice as to what the best tarot card deck to buy is?

Suggestion by CoShoe
Just get a cheap one, and a book from the library that tells you what they mean.

Suggestion by Kenzie
I LOVE the Gilded Tarot. It’s easy to read, gorgeous pictures. It’s incredible. It’s my first deck.
And only so far. I feel such a connection, and it always steers me in the right direction.

You want something that you really feel a connection with though.

Suggestion by Pretty in Red
Not really good idea

  1. Haven’t seriously read for several years, but I have a Rider-Waite deck and a novelty Peanuts mini-tarot (contains only the major arcana), but when I read, I use the Mythic Tarot…especially like the illustrations.

    Bought them all myself, so can’t say about that question

  2. I have two: the Crystal Tarot and the Mythic Tarot. I use the Crystal Tarot primarily because I have small hands and the cards are a bit smaller and easier for me to handle. I chose the Crystal Tarot because of the jewel tone colors and the sort of cubist design. I bought the Mythic Tarot because I love the interepretations in the companion book, but I don’t use it much due to its size. I bought both myself. I yearn to have the Lovecraft Tarot, but unfortunately it’s a bit out of my price range.

  3. Well, for starters, I call them Decks and not packs, if you go to a website that sells tarot, they also call them decks.

    Do you own or use more than one deck?
    Yes I use several quite regularly for reading, some are just part of a collection.

    What types?
    Type? there is Tarot and then there are Oracles, I have both.
    In tarot, decks are created in three varieties;
    RWS – Thoth – Marseilles
    Most of my decks are of the RWS variety, a very few are styled after Thoth, and I have one Marseilles.
    Of the oracles, I have probably over 10 (have not counted them)

    Was it given to you or did you purchase it?
    I have bought decks, been given decks and have traded decks.

    Do you find that the deck given to you is more accurate?
    Accuracy is not found with the deck itself, it is the connection to the deck. Sometimes I will get (in any of the three ways of acquisition mentioned above) a deck that I think I will like, use it a few times and know if I really like it or not. Some decks don’t seem to read well for me and it has nothing to do with where it came from.

    Do your decks follow any type of traditions or religious belief?
    Some of my decks do. My cultural and mythological decks are:
    Legends, Ancestral Path, Native American, Egipcios Kier, and others.

  4. There is no perfect deck that is best for beginners. Now, there are a lot of beginner kits and decks out there that can help, but in my opinion you are going to work best with a deck that calls to you. Wether it be the colors, the theme, or something else, you need to find a deck that YOU like, not one the someone tells you is “best” for you. Personally, I’ve never used a beginner deck. I use what I like. If you want to check out a variety of decks from “beginner” to chaotic, check out http://www.silverwingtarot.com. They have a huge selection

  5. wee falorie man says:

    If you are just starting out, I would recommend buying a Rider-Waite deck; this is considered to be the standard tarot deck. Once you get the feel for it, you can look around and see which other deck (or decks) appeal to you personally and take it from there.

    Have fun!

  6. Pick the one that call out to you. There really isn’t any right deck there is just the right deck for you. That’s the one you pick out for yourself. Look over the decks and which ever one stands out the most to you is the one for you.

  7. Scarlet MacBlu says:

    The most recommended tarot decks to learn from are based on the Rider Waite deck (a deck which I’ve always found rather ugly in its original form)… the Hanson-Roberts deck, Morgan Greer deck, the Fenestra deck and the official Los Scarabeo deck are all good decks that are very close to the Rider Waite in their images. Any deck will do though… find one whose images appeal to you and that “speak” to you.
    To choose a good deck for yourself you’ll want a deck that first of all you find appealing… something that will motivate you to use the cards. More importantly, however, you’ll want a deck that “speaks” to you. Find a sample image of one (or several) of the cards. Ask a somewhat random sample question and then look at the image… how would you answer your question if you pulled that card? If the answer comes fairly easily, then it might be a good deck. If it’s a struggle, then it might not be a good deck for you, even if you find it really beautiful.

    Remember, tarot decks tend to lead to collecting. The varieties of decks and the amazing artwork that can be found on them are enchantingly beautiful in so many different ways, and they’re not super-expensive usually. If you study with your first deck and find it doesn’t “speak” to you as much as you hoped, you can always pick out a new deck once you are more familiar with the cards and know better what you are looking for. In fact, you might pick up a “mini-deck” at first… a pocket-sized deck that is usually under $ 10… usually no more than $ 15. And if you do end up collecting, mini-decks are a great way to accumulate a number of lovely decks without breaking the bank and are great for travel… I keep one in my purse at all times for whenever I need a reading on-the-go or run into someone who knows I read and asks me for a quick casting but haven’t brought my full-sized decks.

  8. One of the most popular tarot card decks for beginners is the Rider Waite deck. Another good deck for beginners is the Sharman-Caselli deck which for me has better designs on each card. Each deck comes with a basic guide booklet giving a brief description of each card as well as brief instructions on card reading.

    Oracle Cards are slightly easier to use than Tarot Cards and as a result make a good introduction to the art of Tarot reading.
