Tarot cards are like an ancient book of wisdom and have been around for centuries. Each Tarot deck has the same amount of cards (78). Within each deck there are four suits (called the minor arcana) and another set of 22 cards called the major arcana. By reading the Tarot we can find meaning in the cards that can help us understand certain aspects of ourselves or our lives better.
When picking a pack of Tarot cards first find one that appeals to you. If someone told you to buy a certain deck and it doesn't really excite you then possibly another may appeal instead? If you are a beginner look at some of the pictures of the cards and see if you can find some meaning in them even if you don’t know yet what they are “meant to mean.” If there is one you can especially relate to, maybe that is the one? And also don’t forget to go with your intuition!
