Choosing the right Tarot Card Deck for you

When approaching the idea of purchasing a tarot card deck, you need to decide how you want to use them. Will they be for your entertainment? Will you use them to gleam insight into your own future? Will you use them as tools to read for other people? While many people buy tarot cards for just to have and are merely curious about what they might be able to do with them; there are people who use these as a tool to help them focus and interpret psychic intuition, answer questions that are extremely personal, or use for guidance.

The best way to pick a specific tarot card deck is to first do your research. There are thousands of different styles of tarot cards to choose, but you should choose one that speaks to you, through the artistic style and theme of the cards. Beginners may want to choose a standardized Rider-Waite style of tarot card deck to learn the arcana's, what they represent and how to interpret them. Always practice readings with an open mind. If you are going to read for another person make sure you are completely knowledgeable of the interpretations of your tarot cards.

There are tarot card decks that are referred to as divination decks. These decks are not based on the standard seventy eight cards of the Rider-Waite tarot, but can range from twenty eight cards per deck to sixty five cards. The artists of these beautiful and imaginative tarot card decks help the reader with their wonderful imagery. These images range from animals, to doors, to fairies, to darker images, and are made to specifically address the requirements of their readers.

When you have chosen which you want as your tarot deck, you may need to purchase online or from your local bookstore, there is no wrong way to purchase, and it is not bad luck to purchase for yourself. More obscure tarot card decks will only be available online, where-as the better selling or more well-known tarot decks can be found in bookstores. The reader will be drawn to the cards which will allow the reader to accomplish exactly what is needed.

Personally I use the Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue, PH.D., for all of my readings, but I do have another deck based on the Rider-Waite tarot decks which I use for myself only. I find that the Goddess cards offer a gentler images for my clients, as some people may be concerned or possibly frightened by the images portrayed in the Rider-Waite tarot decks. Never assume that your clients know the proper interpretations of the images.

Choosing a tarot card deck is a very personal act, and should be done with care and thorough research, especially if the reader chooses to take on clients. As the interpretations of readings are personal, so should your tarot card be.
