I was thinking of getting Tarot cards with a Faerie them. Are there any similar to Rider Waite? I am familiar with this particular deck so that would help. Or any other suggestions would be great.
Thanks!

  1. Check out the review sites that match up the different themes together. Some decks work much better than others,and by seeing some of the cards and reading how they work, you can decide a little better which will be best for you.
    The Aeclectic Tarot site has a great selection based on theme, as does the Tarot Garden site.

  2. There are several Tarot decks and “oracle” decks to choose from, but not all may be what you are expecting. For information on the “Faerie Tarot”, you can go to Aeclectic Tarot.

    If this deck by Nathalie Hertz Is what you are referring to, Aeclectic does not show all the cards, just a sampling. Their Major Arcana appears to be in line with Rider-Waite imagery, but not the minor. Since they don’t show the whole deck, I found another of Nathalie Hertz’s decks, Fantastical Tarot, on Tarot.com and they DO show the entire deck. Note that her minor arcana shows mostly the suit and number but not really the same story-like imagery that the Rider-Waite does. I would assume that she has illustrated her two decks similarly, so this may not be the deck you would want. You can see all the Fantastical deck here:

    If you go through the various spellings of Fairy, Faerie, etc. on Aeclectic, you can see numerous decks, some obscure, some out-of-print or unavailable, and some that are currently available. I would suggest that you pay close attention to any depictions of the minor arcana in the sample pictures to determine whether or not you can get a feel for the imagery before you buy. Bear in mind that many Pagan or New Age type shops keep sample decks of their stock so that you can view them before purchasing. Llewellyn has a selection of decks to see, as well as US Games.

  3. So Faerie Tarot generally does resemble the Rider Waite deck. If you are drawn to this particular deck then it’s a good idea to go ahead and get them. If you have used any tarot decks before then feel free. However, if you haven’t used tarot cards before and are just starting to learn, it’s probably not a good idea to start with this deck. You always want to get a deck you are drawn to. The meanings for tarot cards are all generally the same. However, sometimes the decks get more specific in the meanings and sometimes not. It really does depend on the deck. If you want to learn more about Tarot, I recommend you visit my site http://www.moonlitdreams.net. Blessed be!
