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 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 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.
