So dear friends we have already started our fascinating journey towards the world of Tarot. Our intuitions have brought us on this path. The divine power has chosen us as a part of this world of Tarot.
When we talk about the Tarot, the first thing appears before us is TAROT CARDS. Pack of Tarot cards is called as ‘Tarot Deck’.
Tarot Deck is a pack of 78 cards, among which 22 are Major (Major Arcana) and 56 are Minor (Minor Arcana). (This will be explained in the coming articles)
There’s a vast range and variety of Tarot Decks available for Readers. Each Deck has its own special significance. Some of them have very bright colours, while some have pleasing pictures. On the contrary some are also with minimum colours and light shades.
Decks vary in the size of cards, pictures, colours and price too. So for the beginners it’s quite confusing that which Deck should be selected in the beginning. I suggest going for the basic Deck with simple pictures and which is easy to handle. I myself prefer Rider-Waite Deck for the beginners.
Once we are quite familiar with the cards we can go ahead for other decks.
Again the same question arises….which deck will help us on our way??If we go out for suggestions, we come across many different solutions. In one of the book I came across, it explained that deck should not be purchased but should be gifted to us by someone. Now, this means we will have to wait till someone gift us the Tarot Deck and later will have to compromise with whichever Deck comes in our hand.
Better to keep all this suggestions aside.
Here our best guide is our own “INTUITUION”. Go to the shop and ask the keeper to show some loose sample cards if available. Spend few minutes with those cards. Go around and look at the pack of Decks. Keep your mind cool and you will find that your intuitions guiding you to select the Deck. The Deck which suits you will attract your attention. Just go ahead, pick it up and start your journey.
Never forget to express your gratitude to the divine power on each and every step of your journey.
Thank you Thank you Thank you.
