From time to time I teach an introductory course in reading the Tarot. Students often ask which tarot deck they should buy, and this is my answer -- buy the one that speaks to you. There are hundreds of decks to choose from, some traditional, some not, but you will know which one is right for you to start with by how you resonate with the imagery. Some styles of artwork will leave you cold. Other styles will draw you in. Still others might completely turn you off.
