What do the cards have to say?
Whether or not you’ve ever had your Tarot cards read, you’ve probably at least heard of them at some point in time. Tarot cards are a fascinating tool for unlocking cosmic wisdom about questions that burn within the depths of our hearts, minds and souls. Whether you’ve had yours read at a party, event or chill night with friends, the Tarot is a complex and profound tool for incredible self-reflection.
While some people consider Tarot to be used best as a psychological tool — helping us to see the world through symbols, archetypes, characters and stories — others consider it to be a powerful divinatory medium. The most common Tarot decks to this day are the ones based on the Rider-Waite version, but many others have proliferated into unique and wild territory with their own vast and diverse meanings.
To understand the vast world of Tarot decks and cards, The Post spoke exclusively with Intuitive Tarot Card Reader and Artist Robin De Lano. We put our heads together to create the definitive list of best Tarot decks by zodiac sign. Follow Robin De Lano for everything Tarot!
