Personal disclosure: I like the tarot of marseille deck and find it to be of historical interest. I have noticed all sorts of decks being published and lots of you tubers buying all these decks as professional tarot readers.

So my question is with the rise in tarot decks do you feel there is any reason to buy a newly published deck or are most of them rubbish?

that would be an individual's reasons and not one for anyone else to decide is rubbish or not. People buy them for different reasons. I have a friend who loves collecting all different decks. I don't know if she uses all of them, though.

I bought a Rider-Waite deck when I took a basic reading course because that's what was required for the class.

I didn't buy another until one day one really caught my eye--a Crow Tarot deck. I love crows, along with other birds, and I feed them regularly, so I bought that one. It has a great eight-card "crow spread" that's roughly in the shape of a bird with wings and a head. I've gotten quite a bit out of that deck. It's the one for me.

I haven't had an urge to run out and buy any more, though.

But to your remark about all the You-tubers: I took the basic class because I wanted to learn to read the cards for my own personal use. However, I was surprised that at least half the people in the class planned to try to do professional readings. Since they were just now learning the basics and history of the deck and the artwork in the Rider-Waite, that seemed odd to me. I would think someone would have to develop skills over time in order to become a reader. I wonder if any of them had any success.

I used my first rider deck for 17 years and then replaced it with another rider deck 6 years ago. The rider deck feels like a 'part of me.' I have oohed and aahed over other sumptuous decks I have seen in stores... running my fingers idly over them... but none, no matter how gorgeous, have 'called,' to me. Unless/until a new deck does, I will stick to what I know. As with reading the cards, I think you have to listen to your instincts.

Tarot is an art form as well as a method of divination. Any deck will work for you as long as you take the time to learn how to use it.


You have to take into consideration that different decks might possibly speak differently and each deck would have to be learned.


There is some really gorgeous artwork being used for some of the tarot decks.

There is! Every time I use my Crow deck, I reexamine each card that comes up singularly or in the spread and truly admire the work the artist has done. Sometimes I see something that I missed before or that jumps out at that moment with a significance it may not have had for me another time. I feel very connected with this one. Whereas, my partner has a couple of decks that are very nice but don't move me in the same way.

I have a Deck and I tell ya if I didnt have a book telling me what each meant I would be lost.......... It IS interesting when your doing a reading and a card comes up upside down...... Thats easy enough to understand the meaning of those though.... (Upside down lesser influence in your situation)

Interesting, I am going to read up on thst stuff, I find it more and more interesting because of so many shows and games using them, be cool to have a very old deck like there was a history, and a little magic from all the readings it would give.

Oh yes, I use the little book also for reference, but when I took the class, the instructor told us to avoid using the book as much as possible the first year, or at least to only look at it after you got in the habit of listening to how your own psychic abilities spoke to you through the cards.
