Because of this,repparttar artwork is much more complex and symbolic. The Major Arcana andrepparttar 122149 face cards are much more colorful, lifelike, and detailed. It'srepparttar 122150 Minor Arcana, though, where you'll findrepparttar 122151 main difference.

Rather than use simple counts,repparttar 122152 artist (Pamela Coleman Smith -- who also illustrates childrens adventure stories) decided to draw vignettes of people engaged in some phase of everyday life. Because of this,repparttar 122153 pip cards are highly enriched and yield many thoughtful perspectives -- what arerepparttar 122154 people thinking, what are their motivations, what are their fears, etc -- to enrich Tarot readings.

The final deck style isrepparttar 122155 Thoth style -- named after a deck designed by Aleister Crowley and painted by Lady Freida Harris. The Thoth deck was intended for magickal use fromrepparttar 122156 very beginning. The paintings are surrealistic and highly symbolic. Thoth adds a new technique torepparttar 122157 mix, though. Each non-face card ofrepparttar 122158 Minor Arcana has a subheading describing some motivation or aspect -- things like Happiness, Luxury, Virtue, Oppression, etc. Because of this, some readers find it easy to read with Thoth decks. Thoth decks also make it easy to draw from other esoteric disciplines -- astrology, for example -- in order to create inspired Tarot readings.

Most decks you'll find in a bookstore will follow one of these three basic styles. Marseilles styles will use pip counts, RWS styles will use pip scenes, and Thoth styles tend to be surrealistic but labelrepparttar 122159 Minor Arcana with additional descriptions.
