Optimise your learning experience in the “Simply Tarot” course with these recommended materials. While not mandatory, these resources are designed to enhance your engagement and mastery of tarot throughout the course.

Your Tarot Deck

Every participant needs a tarot deck that resonates with them personally. While any 78-card tarot deck will suffice, here are a couple I highly recommend:

  • The Weiser Tarot: A modern reinterpretation of the classic Rider-Waite-Smith deck, great for those who appreciate traditional imagery with contemporary nuances.
  • Fifth Spirit Tarot: A beautifully inclusive deck that reimagines tarot beyond the gender binary, which I personally use in most of my readings.

Feel free to explore these and other decks to find one that speaks to you.
