I'll admit - I always use Oracle cards more than Tarot but I decided I needed to learn more about Tarot.
Tarot cards always use the same main layout of Major Arcanas and Minor Arcanas. Traditional tarot like these have the four elements as represented by different articles.
This kit was perfect for me to get the basics down. This is essential to really experiencing tarot.
Just learning what each of the four elements represent is key in being able to read these cards easily. The cheat sheet is what I really appreciate as I can quickly glance at it when my memory is flagging.
As you get used to the representation you start to see the patterns. Glancing at a card and just feeling into it and noticing what comes up for you is key in following your own intuition as you are learning.
Play with the deck. Learn with these basics and you won't go wrong!
