If you are a beginner to tarot reading, you may want to start with the Rider-Waite deck. However, it isn’t the only option. There are also a variety of other decks to choose from, including the Wild Unknown and Morgan Greer decks. While they’re more aesthetically pleasing, they’re less intuitive for beginning readers. The Morgan Greer deck is essentially the Rider-Waite on steroids. This deck is a great choice for anyone looking for big faces, bright colors, and Game of Thrones-themed imagery. Whatever tarot deck is chosen, it is important to find one you like and easy to interpret.
