The Rider-Waite deck is a good choice for beginners to tarot. It’s not the only option. There are many other decks you can choose from, such as the Morgan Greer and Wild Unknown 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. With big faces, vivid colors, and Game of Thrones-themed imagery, this deck has something for everyone. Whatever tarot deck is chosen, it is important to find one you like and easy to interpret.
