Modern Spellcaster’s Tarot Cards
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 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. But whatever tarot deck you choose, the most important thing is finding one that you like and is intuitive enough to interpret.
