I’m interested in tarot card reading and learning to do it myself but there are so many different types of decks out there, how do i choose? Is there a way to find out which one is the right deck for me or does it even matter?

  1. I don’t know too much about them but i do know this. There are some cards that have more negative cards in them that will show you more of the negative things in life. There are other cards that are more positive and will show you the positive things in life.
    In the end I think they will all tell you the same thing.

  2. I would suggest you start with the most typical Rider deck. It is so standard that mst others will be based on it. It comes with a booklet that explains the symbols behind the cards as well as the different layouts. Once you gain proficiency in it, you might be intuitively drawn to a deck you have seen in your local New Age store. When you develop your intuition well it will guide you to a new deck every time.

    You will feel special affinity towards the deck you are supposed to choose. If the illustrations look interesting, or the theme behind the deck appeals to you, you will know to go for such a deck. Until then, if you confused, start with the basics. The Rider deck is so well known, you can even find free tutorials online about it. Good luck.

  3. The deck you choose does not matter. Go to a New Age bookstore that has a variety of decks; look at them and touch them. One will feel right to you and that is the one that you should choose.

    Any deck will do as long as you like it and feel comfortable with it. Raider Waite deck is the most widely used. I use the Mythic Tarot which is based on Greek Mythology since that is the deck used to teach me. There may be more information on meanings using the more widely used decks so you may want to take that into consideration. The reason is that some of the less known decks will have variations on the cards.

    Best wishes

  4. I’ve found it helpful for me to look at tarot boxes on display in a store and find one I’m drawn to. User reviews of tarot decks, when you can find them, have also been extremely helpful to me since they can critique the art, symbolism, and the reviewers’ experiences using the cards. In addition, reviews often snapshot a few cards to give you a general idea of the theme of the deck.
