My Tarot Deck Collection

A hobby I am fascinated in and working on improving is tarot card reading I own multiple tarot and oracle decks and have been learning the differing meanings of the major arcana cards and the four suits in the minor arcana. It is a hobby I am hoping to improve with continued practice and learning.
I wanted to share with you the different tarot and oracle  decks that I own and use starting with my tarot decks I have three different ones.

Rider-Waite Tarot

The one deck I am sure everyone has heard of is the Rider-Waite tarot deemed the perfect beginner's deck filled with the classic images that people associate with tarot, originally printed in 1910 with images designed by Pamela Colman Smith the deck comprises of 78 cards. The images represent each card well, a small booklet is provided with the deck but it does not provide vast detail on each card though I am sure with how simple the pictures depicted on the cards are they are easy to analyse from your own opinion with the basic knowledge of the meanings of the major arcana and the four suits. As stated previously this is a great deck for someone new to tarot who wants to begin learning a deck.

Game of Thrones Tarot

 I first saw this deck when I visited the Game of Thrones Touring Exhibition, as a massive fan of the show I was keen to add this deck to my collection. The drawings and imagery depicting each card is stunningly done and the characters used correspond with each card very well. These cards may be slightly harder to read than the Rider-Waite unless you already know the meanings but this deck does come with a more detailed guidebook with information on each card linked to the Game of Throne's plots. If you are a keen Game of Thrones fan and interested in learning tarot this would be a good deck for you.

The Light Seers Tarot

 Finally I have saved the best for last. This is the most recent deck I have bought but it is by far my favourite tarot deck! The 78-card tarot deck created by Chris-Anne reimagines the traditional style tarot in a more contemporary boho style using bright and detailed imagery to help explain the meanings of each card. I love how expressive the cards are and how well the characters are used in the imagery to help explain the meanings, this is a stunning collection for those whole like more colourful and bright imagery and detail in tarot decks.

Let me know are you a fan of tarot? If so what decks are in your collection?

Thanks for Reading!
