Because a tarot deck looks pretty doesn’t mean that you can easily read it. Liking certain artworks is a different experience then resonating with artworks. Sometimes it could happen that you buy a tarot deck that looks absolutely amazing but when you try to read it it doesn’t do it for you.

Reading tarot has to do with your own spiritual path. That is why it is the best to choose a tarot deck yourself instead of letting an tarot expert pick one for you.  I will help you in this article how to choose a tarot that fits your needs, all by yourself.

In the first place you need to know:


What is your reason to choose a tarot deck?

Some example of reasons to choose a (new) tarot deck are:

1. I want to buy my first tarot deck

There is a lot to learn about tarot decks when you choose your first tarot deck. Because of this choose a tarot deck that comes with a lot of information. The most books are written about the Rider-Waite tarot deck and about the Thoth tarot deck by Aleister Crowley. This is because both tarot decks have their roots in another movement. The Thoth tarot deck of Aleister Crowley is based on his complete religion which is called Thelema. The Rider-Waite tarot deck is made by Edward Rider-Waite which was a member of the Hermetic order of the Golden down. Because these organisations and movement were completely devoted to the study and practice of the occult, metaphysics, and paranormal activities there are many books written about these tarot decks.

2. I want to try a new tarot deck

If you are already reading with a tarot deck for a while you might want to try something new or use more decks at the same time. If you take a look around on the internet there are many tarot decks to choose from. In short you can most of the time find these categories of tarot decks:

  • Tarot decks with a theme (sexual tarot decks, movie tarot decks, cartoonish tarot decks, fairy tale etc.)
  • Vintage tarot decks (with European renessaince artwork)
  • Tarot decks based on convictions and philosophy (inlcude hermetic symbolism, kabbalistic symbolism etc.)

You can use tarot decks with a theme in a experimental way. For example if you are doing a tarot reading on your sex life you can use a sensual tarot deck.

Vintage tarot decks are often having a higher price. You also need to take a look if the card deck exists out out of the nowadays standard of 78 tarot cards. Often vintage tarot decks have around 80 tarot cards in the deck.

“Find a tarot deck that has the right ingredients for you but stay open to let the qualities of other decks surprise you.”
