The Rider-Waite tarot deck is the most popular tarot deck available on the market today. This 78-card deck includes 56 tarot cards known as the Minor Arcana and 22 tarot cards known as the Major Arcana. Many modern Tarot decks are inspired by the popular Rider Waite Smith Tarot Deck, first published in 1909 by spiritual seeker A.E. Waite featuring hand-drawn imagery from designer Pamela Colman Smith. Decks that follow the exact RWS system are known as ‘Rider Waite clones’—this means that the imagery and meaning would mirror the RWS system of Tarot. So, if you learn this system, you will know the imagery contained in numerous modern Tarot decks. This deck is ideal for beginners and experienced readers alike because of its detailed symbolism.
