Guidelines For Choosing A Tarot Deck For Class
I bet you will be shocked to hear that I don’t allow the Rider-Waite-Smith deck in the Magician’s Tools Beginning Tarot Class! I don’t teach the specific symbolism of that deck, but instead teach you ground rules for interpreting the artwork and symbolism of any deck. So I prefer that students use a variety of decks so we can all learn from each other. However, there are guidelines for how to pick a deck for class. You can find these requirements at this post or this post.
