Tarot Decks & Cards

In a traditional tarot deck there are 22 major arcana and 56 minor arcana for a total of 78 cards.  Each card has a suit, commonly cups, wands, pentacles and swords.  The cards, especially major arana, all have their own meanings.  When starting out, tarot sets that include guide books can be helpful to new tarot readers to use as a reference and help develop intuition.  Unlike oracle cards, tarot tend to have a solid structure which some find helps better connect with the universal knowledge.  Which deck you choose is ultimately a personal choice and often you will find the decks themselves have different voices.  When choosing a deck, go with your instincts.
