The Rider-Waite deck and the Cosmic deck are good examples of illustrated Tarot decks, where the images in the cards give away part of their meaning. These are generally the most useful for the beginner, so you don’t have to learn off all 78 interpretations. The Cosmic Tarot is a modern version with movie-like imagery, and the court cards are gender-balanced (instead of page and knight, this deck uses Princess and Prince).

If you want a more traditional deck, the IJJ Swiss deck is a good buy. It is very simple, yet colourful, and the patterns can be used as mandalas as well, without distracting imagery.

The most well-developed and coherent set of symbolism would be the Rider Waite deck.

(unless you lean in the direction of Alester Crowley – which …I hope not)

@”where the images in the cards give away part of their meaning. These are generally the most useful for the beginner”
This is not solely for the benefit of the reader. The powerful imagery is necessary to engage the client’s unconcious.
Moreover, if you want to use them for meditation rather than solely for reading, then again – it is expressly the power of the imagery that you want.
To say “for beginner” realy does an injustice for an artform that is based on a mystical revelation on the part of the artist.

@”The Cosmic Tarot is a modern version with movie-like imagery, and the court cards are gender-balanced”
Thats just plain silly

Gardnerian tarot cards have had a lot of demon power associated with them, if I were going to put my soul in the hands of evil created beings that wanted me to be separate from the love of God, I’d probably go with a Gardnerian deck. However consorting with demons even through a deck of ordinary playing cards will do the trick.

Answer by Chris ॐ
I think the best thing is to look at some pictures of decks and see which speak to you. I personally like the golden dawn deck.

edit: My guru now tells me not to engage in divination. At some point in your spiritual journey yo will need to look for God within rather than look outward with divination.

I just went to get my tarot card fortune told, and after I left I wanted to tell my best friend, but wasn’t sure if I should or not since the lady told me not to? Is it bad if I do?

Answer by JerryMc
Only if paying money to a scam artist embarrasses you.

Answer by vérité
It’s bad for the fortune teller… because if people go around talking about it they’ll get laughed at and then she’ll lose business.

Answer by Slightly Amused 7th Account
No, it is not bad regardless if the tarot reader told you so.

Nope i got mine read three years ago. I got three death cards and the fourth card was a woman :/. I determined id live 3 more years and would die because of a girl. Its all good though 🙂 tarot cards dont mean much u gotta get palm readings lol

Answer by Jei
First of all, I wouldn’t believe any of that hocus pocus nonsense. Even if you somehow knew your future, telling others wouldn’t even matter, because once you knew what your future was, it would change just from the simple fact that you knew about it.

Answer by Helen
She sounds bogus. A professional and ethical Tarot reader would not tell you not to discuss your reading with anyone, and they also would not tell you your “fortune”. The best use of Tarot is not to make predictions about the future, it is to help you gain insight into your life and to give you spiritual guidance.

I’m 14 and my parents cannot afford all my books and other compulsary needs for school. I bought a pack of “Psychic Tarots by Dean Holland” , are they good to work with other people or do I need to buy a traditional pack of cards?
I don’t want any dumb answers , I want you to answer my question, Tarot card reading is what interests me .
recently my parents lost their jobs , I bought my tarot cards a very long time ago before my parents lost their jobs

Answer by G A Y JESUS
You’re poor and spent money on tarot cards instead of books for school?

Wow, you’re dumb.

I looked at the Psychic Tarot, and I think they will do just fine for learning. They have all the Major Arcana, and the non-court cards from the Minor Arcana. Since the missing cards are the “court” cards (which are famously hard for the beginner to interpret) I think you can learn to do readings easily using these cards. If a book came with the deck. read it but most people find the books that come with decks to be pretty worthless so if it is confusing you, don’t bother.
Use whatever is your best means of memorization (mine was to write the cards’ meanings down in a notebook) and do small, simple spreads to start, 1-3 cards at most. Since you have access to the internet, go to learntarot.com and read additional meanings for the cards there. There is also a wealth of information at aeclectic.com. After a while you may want to get another deck, but for now these should be fine. Enjoy your journey!

Any cards are good to do reading and to “work with people” (not sure what you mean by that). You can even do readings with simple playing cards, you will just need to know how to interpret them.
The priority when you chose a deck, is to make sure the pictures “speak” to you, meaning that you will respond to each illustration in an emotional way. Try first to get familiar with your deck by playing with it, by becoming familiar with each cards. Then, slowly, you can start to do small spreads and see how it goes. Enjoy!

The Crowley deck!

The book of Thoth by Alister Crowley is the book you want to have. The Tarot Handbook by Angeles Arrien is a good book to add to your collection.

I have been studying Tarot for almost 20 years. Numbers fascinate me and I have been able to relate to them early in life. Research online you will see that the deck is full of symbols, artistically designed and is the most accurate to the tree of life.

Good luck with your studies. Don’t let anyone discourage you from learning what feels right to you.
