Sep 9, 2008

We might live in an age of immediate access to digital knowledge yet still, people question what the future holds for them. Since there isn't a machine that can time travel yet, people continue to resort to the age old art of divination for answers to their questions about past, present and future events.

Historically, only the most wealthy patrons could commission an artist to create a deck of tarot cards. The artists wold painstakingly draw and paint the images onto the card surfaces Some of the designs are very intricate and ornate.

The tarot deck has evolved as artists have added their own touches that can have different meanings from other artists decks of cards. These artist's touches can give different meanings to that particular deck that are different from other tarot card decks.

As a traditional first choice, the Rider-Waite deck is supported by much literature for meaning, use and a variety of card spreads. The artwork is simple, compelling and it is easy to develop an intuitive meaning for each of the cards.

All tarot decks come with an card interpretation guide and instructions. This means that it is not necessary to start a tarot card collection with the Rider-Waite tarot cards.
