The Rider-Waite deck is a good choice for beginners to tarot. 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 basically 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.
It is believed that tarot cards originated as a card game similar to bridge. They were first introduced in Europe in the 15th century and were popular with wealthy families in Italy. According to World of Playing Cards the original deck was brought by Islamic soldiers to these regions. The soldiers probably carried the deck on duty. The culture spread to the native populations. However, this is not the only theory. The TreeHouse Society believes that the game was invented in the 17th century by a German monk, but tarot cards have been around for centuries.
