Traditional tarot card decks can be found online and in New Age sections at the store. Most of them have imagery and symbols and the drawings will speak to people depending on what they like. Some choose angels or animals and others might choose Celtic or erotica themes. Whatever appeals to you in the cards is great but if you feel that you are not being inspired, there are other things that you can do.
The traditional meanings of the cards such as the cards in the Rider-Waite deck are ones that have nice looking artwork, and they are traditional cards with Major Arcana and Minor Arcana cards and four different suits that require the reader to use symbols to interpret the deck.
Non-Traditional Tarot Cards
If you want to build more skill though, you might need to try a deck of cards that isn’t quiet traditional. This can help to build your skills and help you to gain mastery. Some of the decks require you to have certain skills and almost all decks are ones that require you to use your intuition. If you are a basic reader and you want to develop your intuition, some of the best cards for you might be:
- Intuitive Tarot.
- Klimt Tarot.
- English Magic Tarot.
These are decks to build your skills and to help you build your collection. If you want to do a non-traditional reading, you need to spend more time knowing the cards. It is important that you spend time meditating over the cards and journaling what your reading looks like. You can learn the deck that you are using, and you can meditate so that you can become one with the cards.
Meditation doesn’t have to be extensive or long and you can take a few minutes of time to meditate over the cards so that you can become one with them and so that you aren’t distracted. Look at the card, memorize what it looks like. Close your eyes and imagine that you are able to go into the cards. What do the cards make you feel? What do you hear when you listen to the cards? What do you see? Even if you feel that you don’t feel or see or hear anything, don’t feel bad for making things up but just follow your intuition.
Let the cards tell you a story. You can even find a deck of cards that are personalized to your liking, and this can help you when you are journaling and meditating to know what kind of energies the cards have.

Remember how the cards feel in your hand. Notice the texture and the cards. You can go into a New Age store or a bookstore or you can even find decks of cards to buy online. Notice how they feel and listen to your intuition when you choose a deck.
The deck will be powerful for you if you learn to listen to your intuition and let it guide you. Your intuition will tell you if you should buy a traditional or non-traditional deck and if you should feel drawn to certain images.
One con of choosing a non-traditional deck though is that it can be hard for beginners to learn a deck of cards that is harder.
