The Rider-Waite deck is a good choice for beginners to tarot. 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. While they’re more aesthetically pleasing, they’re less intuitive for beginning readers. 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.
