    1. This wasn't my first deck, but one of the earlier ones I learned with. I don't care for a lot of the images, due to some of the more Christian influences. (You have to consider the year it was made in though!) I had a hard time connecting with this deck at first due in part to that imagery. However, regardless of the issues I had connecting - It's the first deck that I owned that allowed me to really delve deep during a reading. Some of the 'newer' (and I'm using that word loosely) decks seem to [...]


    2. In years past, I believed in divination. I had a large collection of Tarot decks--a couple dozen--and I enjoyed studying the meanings of the cards.I no longer believe that fortune telling actually works. However, the Tarot remains a valuable art form and tool. People are correct to describe it as "Seventy eight degrees of wisdom," as the cards symbolically cover the entirety of human experience.For that reason, they are excellent for meditation and contemplating life. Writers and artists can use [...]


    3. This is the standard tarot deck that all others are measured against. Images tie directly to the traditional meaning of the cards. Considered one of the easiest decks to learn and to read from.


    4. closer to a 3.5This is a classic deck (as my version says the original tarot). The artwork is nice however it all seems a little dated. The symbols and imagery are hard to read as the images aren't the clearest. I thing a newer interpretation of R.Waite would be a better fit like the druid craft or Robin Wood. This deck is nice to begin with (so are the ones above) however I don't feel a strong connection with these cards. I think they are good to start with because they follow the original taro [...]


    5. This was my very first tarot deck and I have a profound respect for this set of tarot cards. Each card, which may seem 'dated' (it should seem dated! It was originally published over a hundred years ago!) is filled with rich symbolism. If you are just starting to work with tarot, this deck is a classic must have for your collection! This deck is the granddaddy of all subsequent tarot and oracle decks on the modern day market. It was a trail blazer back in the day and has a rich history of its ow [...]




    6. The definitive traditional tarot deck. This is the standard by which all others are compared and I would recommend, require beginners to start with this deck.
