Familiarize Yourself with the Ryder-Waite Tarot Deck

To begin with, I believe, any starting Tarot reader needs to be familiarized with the original Ryder-Waite deck. Many guides work with this deck when teaching novices. Understanding of the whole set of Tarot cards in this deck will aid you to go for different Tarot decks as you get more skillful. I utilized Ryder-Waite for a entire 12 month period before even looking at some other decks. Through experience I truly feel you should not merely study the “Little White Book” that is provided with the deck but to read a handful of Tarot instructional books for beginners by different authors. Commonly, authors offer you fairly different interpretations of each Tarot card. What honestly matters probably the most though, is YOUR interpretation. Do you acknowledge Author A’s interpretation or maybe Expert B’s meaning makes more sense? You might not totally agree with anybody! I do think that is rather brilliant also!

When it comes time to take that step and find an alternative Tarot deck, be sure the pictures are special to you. I cannot stress this enough! I failed to actually recognize how significant a Tarot Deck can be until not long ago. This is the short story…

My Story About My Current Tarot Deck…
I have always been an intense animal enthusiast and was really devastated after I needed to put my cat to sleep. Whilst my cat was unhealthy I came across the “Baroque Bohemian Cats’ Tarot” Alex Ukolov & Karen Mahony. On account of what was going on in my life, this Tarot deck was entirely perfect. The imagery of kittens and cats involved in various activities with varied feelings being represented on their kitty faces as well as with their body postures and positions made this Tarot deck very easy for me to utilize, and unusually accurate. Some of the Cat cards within this unique deck actually create physical sensations within my tummy dependant upon the feeling of the card. Should you react strongly to a deck, get it!

Feel the Tarot deck! No, not with your sixth sense silly, with your HANDS! Can you shuffle them? Will they adhere to each other a lot of? Do they look or feel “cheap,” signifying that they might suffer deterioration after only a small number of uses? Do they feel nice?
