Where to start
My favorite deck to begin with is the Ryder-Waite deck. It is universally used and brings to the student a solid vocabulary used in tarot.
Once you have acquired your deck separate the major arcana from the minor.
There are twenty-two cards with full-sized pictures, each usually bearing a name (The chariiot, Then Hanged Man and so forth) and a number from zero to twenty-two.
this group is the major arcana (which means "greater secrets") and its cards are called "trump, keys or sometimes atouts.
