Love these the old classic
The Original Rider Waite Tarot Deck .
Usually can't get them for under £20 in a shop but these are well worth it. big display, gorgeous pictures and character!
The Rider Waite Tarot continues to be one of the most widely used Tarot decks, with various reasons for its enduring popularity, including its ready availability. When I was first interested to learn Tarot, such cards were not easy to locate and, if a high street bookstore was going to stock any, it was always the Rider Waite.
I have started out with these as my second pack, I wish I had used them first, they are clear and great for beginners and such!
People new to Tarot are often surprised to find they can immediately start applying basic interpretation skills with the Rider Waite. As an example, the Six of Cups depicts two children in a garden, with pots filled with white flowers around them. The boy smells the flowers in a pot that he offers to the girl, whose hand is outstretched, ready to receive them. Already, rather like in a captured moment in a photo, we can see some sort of ‘story’ here, one of innocence, gifts, love, kindness and growth.
Wish I had bought these years ago :)
