22 Major Arcana Tarot
If you are a beginner to tarot reading, you may want to start with the Rider-Waite deck. It’s not the only option. There are also a variety of other decks to choose from, including the Wild Unknown and Morgan Greer decks. They are more visually appealing, but they are less intuitive for beginners. The Morgan Greer deck is basically the Rider-Waite on steroids. With big faces, vivid colors, and Game of Thrones-themed imagery, this deck has something for everyone. But whatever tarot deck you choose, the most important thing is finding one that you like and is intuitive enough to interpret.
It is believed that tarot cards originated as a card game similar to bridge. They first appeared in Europe during the 15th century, and were most popular among the rich families in Italy. According to the World of Playing Cards, the original deck was brought to these regions by Islamic soldiers. The soldiers probably carried the deck on duty. The culture eventually spread to the indigenous populations. This is not the only theory. The TreeHouse Society believes the game was created in 17th century by a German monk. However, tarot cards have existed for centuries.
