Tarot Decks

A reader should select a deck based on what feels right for them. The Rider–Waite tarot deck for tarot card reading, also known as the Waite–Smith, or Rider–Waite–Smith, or Rider tarot deck is the most popular version of cards used today. Illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith, based on the instructions of academic and mystic A. E. Waite, the cards were originally published by the Rider Company in 1909.

The Lightworker’s Tarot Deck, also shown here, is a beginner deck that uses many of the symbols used in the Rider–Waite deck but also provides modern imagery designed for a rapid sensory-intuition response by today’s new readers.
