There are many different decks of Tarot cards to choose from and some decks are difficult to learn. You cannot open a deck of cards in a shop; therefore you cannot view the images or text. There is a way of going with the feeling of the cards. Hold the deck with both holds and see what your feelings are telling you. It’s the same when you give a reading, you go with what feels right.

Otherwise you can get some knowledge before going out to buy your deck. It’s best to get to know one deck completely while you are learning.

Tarot was designed with specific symbols, colors and images for a very good reason. The traditional Tarot cards represent the psychological, spiritual and mundane archetypes. Created in such a way they represent every part of a person’s journey. What ever you are experiencing when you do a reading, you will find a card that reflects the situation. The Rider-Waite Tarot deck has been used for decades, and is a very good choice, for both beginners and more experienced Tarot readers.

Many people just beginning the road to Tarot reading are looking for a “beginner deck.” According to Durriken, a former Tarot reader and teacher, at The Crones Hollow, in Salt Lake City, with more than 15 years experience working with the Tarot, “There’s really no such thing as a beginner’s deck.”

Tarot for Beginners: A Guide to Psychic Tarot Reading, Real Tarot Card Meanings, and Simple Tarot Spreads 

     by Lisa Chamberlain
Most guides to the Tarot are centered on a specific deck, such as the Waite-Smith, the Tarot of Marseille, or other decks ranging from the well-known to the rather obscure. While these books can be useful and informative, their card interpretations are largely restricted to the particular deck they focus on. Tarot for Beginners takes a different approach, offering basic card meanings that can be applied to any deck, and used in tandem with any descriptions that accompany the deck you’ve chosen to work with. So no matter which Tarot deck you use, the information in this guide is relevant, providing a solid starting point for a skill you can carry with you for a lifetime
