    My fav book is Tarot for the 21st Century by Josephine McCarthy. The Biddy Tarot book is HUGE and great, but maybe a little overwhelming with information, depending on how much you want to take in. It’s solid, but the advice is a little… nice, for my tastes. I like a tarot book that is a little more blunt.

    Holistic Tarot by Benebell Wang is also great, and really gets technical. It’s also MASSIVE, a book that will keep up with you as you grow as a tarot reader. Used copies on ebay aren’t too expensive.

    In my opinion you should start with RWS tarot.

    Why? Because it has pictures instead of just symbols, is a good start.

    Beginners book?

    *78 Degrees of wisdom* by Mary K. Greer

    *The ultimate guide to tarot* by Liz Dean

    *The pictorial key to the tarot* by Arthur E. Waite.

    *The Big Book of Tarot* by Joan Bunning

    *Modern Tarot* by Michelle Tea

    Now… if you want a deck and book set, try this 2:

    *Exploring Tarot Using Radiant Rider-Waite Tarot* by Avia Venefica.

    *Beginner’s Guide To Tarot* by Juliet Sharman-Burke

    This sets have a coloured book with good beginners meanings.

    Have a good day 🙂

    Find a deck with art you like, do a bunch of research on this. There’s unboxings and reviews all over YouTube. I’d advise in getting a fully illustrated deck because pip decks aren’t conductive to intuitive reading and learning in my experience. Beyond that…. get a deck that you actually like. There is no right for everyone beginner deck despite what some will tell you.

    Is there a particular art style or theme you like? There’s a little something for everyone out there. Which is why I think limiting yourself to one specific type of deck is a pity.
