There are literally hundreds and hundreds of tarot decks to choose from and I love collecting them! So why choose a particular deck of cards? I always feel it is better to be drawn to a physical pack rather than online, if this is possible. Look at each one several times. Look at the images, the ones that are right for you are the ones that keep drawing you back. Our subconscious mind is aware of the images that resonate with who we are and the experiences we have had in this lifetime and previous lifetimes. Be guided by your own intuition.
The cards themselves will have all the meanings, there is never any need for a book or text. The picture will speak for itself depending on the experiences you have had. The characters in the cards have their own body language. I had tarot cards for many years before I was fully able to understand them. I then met a lovely man who took it right back to basics, the simplicity in each one word meaning for each card meant I was able to adjust the meanings depending on the surrounding cards and what was actually happening in my world on that particular day.
I learnt with the original Rider Waite and would recommend this deck to anyone who is just starting out. The tarot has been a life changing ongoing love affair for me. I would suggest anyone who is struggling to learn the cards takes one card every day, look at the images in the card, the colours, the colour of the sky, mountains, sunshine, water, clouds. As well as the figure in the card, are they looking up, are their arms folded, are they looking down. Create the story of how that person is feeling at that moment in time. This is the ultimate key to learning any deck.
I hope to encourage others to see and have the passion I have for these mystical and magical, life changing cards.
Love and blessings to you all xx
