The Art of Picking and Discovering Your First Tarot Deck
Whenever it comes time to choose your first Tarot deck, it can feel like a daunting task. This is because there are hundreds of them to choose from. Your goal in finding a Tarot deck is to find one that speaks well to you.
It is important to understand that there is no right or wrong approach to choosing a Tarot deck. Take a look at what's available or look some of the Tarot decks up online. This will allow you to see what the artists are up to. Ultimately, you need to find imagery that speaks to you.
You should identify your own feelings about the various Tarot decks that are available today. Sometimes this means you'll need to find a place where you can see them in person. This is why Metaphysical stores exist. If you can't open or look at the deck, handle it to see how it feels to you.
One thing that is important is understanding the type of deck that draws you in. Sometimes it will not be a Tarot deck but oracle or angel cards instead. While they're not interpreted the same way as Tarot cards are, they do come with information about how to interpret them. The purpose of all of these cards is always the same though. They are there to help you tap into your inner self.
If you don't feel as though you can find the right Tarot deck, try a traditional one like the Rider Waite, Morgan Greer or Aquarian Tarot decks. Their imagery is found in most Tarot books. As you grow comfortable with the deck you can find one that is more meditative or abstract. Just remember that your goal is always to tap into your intuition so that is what should serve as your guide here.
