I suggest starting with the pattern decks of the particular divinationary system you work with.

The standard decks for the Tarot cards are Tarot de Marseille and Rider Waite Smith Tarot but I suggest starting with the latter because unlike Tarot de Marseille it shows the Minor Arcana in a graphic way as the images, not just symbols. However, Tarot de Marseille is great if you want to get the better meaning of the Major Arcana. There is also Toth Tarot by Aleister Crowley but it is packed with symbolism and may be too ‘heavy’ for the beginners.

When it comes to runes, the simple signs are best to start with.


Simply speaking you have to  enjoy watching the deck you use, it must be pleasant for your eyes. It has to talk to you, seeing the images you should be able to identify yourself with them somehow or even find yourself in the picture. If the images activate your intuition, this means this deck is good for you.

Some decks are pretty, detailed and colourful and watching them you admire the devotion and the amount of work the author put into the project but there is just one problem: it does not appeal to you. It does not speak to you.

Remember it is impossible to work with the deck you do not have a certain connection with.
