The Tarot is a tool for self-understanding and personal development.  A tarot reading is based on the Jungian principal of synchronicity, that is our thoughts attract and form events in our lives.  It is a language of symbols, with each symbol having multiple meanings. A full deck consists of 78 cards.The 22 Major Arcana throw light on life's main passages, the 40 Minor Arcana highlight daily events and the 16 court cards represent people (ourselves and others).

The Golden Art Nouveau deck was reprinted recently, using gold foil to stunning effect.  It is based on the Rider-Waite Smith deck so is very easy to use. 

The details are clear and the court cards are realistic and show facial expressions well. The Italian artist is extremely talented and makes the most of the luxuriant art nouveau style.

I thoroughly recommend this deck and enjoy working with it. The size is standard and the price is $65 (worth it for the real gold).

This beautiful new deck by Karen and Jody Boginski features specific named angels for the Major arcana and nameless angels for the Minors with no specific attributes.

Angels are celestial beings that act as conduits between God and humankind. There are also symbols on each card to help us interpret the meaning and a "shadow" meaning which gives guidance on the totality of the meaning.
price is $65.

This new Anniversary edition of the Enchanted Tarot is one of my personal favourites and has been out of print for some time. It was produced by a husband and wife team and the art work began as tapestries.

It is based on the Rider-Waite-Smith deck so is accessible to people already used to that deck and has an excellent book which not only clarifies the issue but gives an affirmation and a ritual to work with. I find it a good deck to choose when the the Querent's issue is one of relationships.

 The set is reasonably priced at $68 and includes a full size deck, a book and a bag for the cards. I heartily recommend it.

These are the three most popular decks. On the left is the Radiant Rider-Waite-Smith deck, a recoloured version of the standard on the far right. Rider was the publisher, Waite was the author, and Pamela Coleman-Smith the artist. The Majors are numbered with the Fool at nought through twenty-one. Until this was published, the minors were not illustrated, and it was Pamela's idea to do this , thus making the deck widely accessible and easy to read. The centre deck is the Crowley-Harris which has much more detail and is suitable for advanced work.
Price of the Radiant and Standard Rider-Waite decks is now $55 and the small Thoth is $65.

 Other sets available are the Arthurian Legend, the Mythic Tarot, the Druidcraft Tarot, the Osho Zen Tarot and the Gilded Tarot. 
Price of radiant set is $70 and the Beguinners
