A Crash Course in Tarot for Newbies #2Written by Sam Stevens
If you would like to learn to read tarot cards, your first challenge is to choose a deck from 8,000 or so published brands of fortune telling cards on market. What works for one person often doesn't for another. Some people are comfortable reading several decks and others just identify with one deck. In my experience you will find that over time, you will grow in and out of several decks. You may also find that deck that you prefer to use to read yourself is not deck that you prefer to use read others. For instance, when I first began reading I started out with a deck that was too heavy for me - The Crowley Deck. The ultimate result of that was that I ended up selling them because I was spooked out images of deck. I was simply too young to handle imagery on this dark deck and was giving myself nightmares. I then switched to Rider Waite Deck for a few years, which is ultimate easy, all -purpose deck. I then fell in love with Renaissance Deck which is much more elaborate in terms of it's imagery and a bit more pointed in its meanings when it came to describing relationships. Then I entered a period when I was yearning for more simplicity, I switched to Palladini deck, which is very pure and has a "lighter feeling." (Kind of like Pollyanna of Tarot Decks.) Now that I am older, I am back to Crowley Deck and Order of Golden Stair decks, which are a little heavier in feel. There are also lots of specialty or eclectic decks on market that might appeal to you more than Rider Waite, but learning Rider Waite is like going to high school. Psychic Realm reader Bacchus for instance, uses Haindl deck for his readings, which has a Nordic feel and is a permutation of classic Rider-Waite deck, but as wonderful as it is, I don't think it is a beginner deck. Here are some good decks I can recommend for beginners that are based on Rider Waite System of meanings. The Rider Waite Deck The Aquatic Tarot - same as Rider Waite but realized in watercolors The Pamela Colman Tarot - same imagery as Rider Waite but done in brighter more psychedelic colors The Golden Tarot - same as Rider Waite but imagery is more medieval The Palladini Tarot - same as Rider Waite but with very simple, cheerful drawings The Renaissance Tarot - same as Rider Waited but enhanced with images from Renaissance age. You can find a selection of Tarot Decks in Psychic Realm store off main page or browse web and buy one that catches your eye online. I recommend doing a little online research first and finding places you can view different decks online because most storeowners won't let you open and handle their deck because it means removing plastic from their packaging. However, best way to be sure is to go to a store, pick up deck and see if you like feel of cards once you have done some research on imagery in them. The feel, weight or look of cards often "speaks" to you. If you a feel a connection with images on cards or even how they feel in your hands, then that is probably deck that you will relate to best. I also recommend a deck that comes with a small book inside package or box so you will have something to quickly reference if you should get lost while reading.
