    The typical 78-card tarot deck has two distinct parts. The first, called the trump cards, consists of 21 cards without suits, plus a 22nd card, The Fool, which is often given the value of zero. These cards are known as the major arcana, or “greater secrets.”
    The second consists of 56 cards divided into 4 suits of 14 cards each. The traditional Italian suits are swords, batons, coins and cups. In modern tarot decks, the batons suit is commonly called wands, rods or staves, while the coins suit is often called pentacles or disks. These cards are known as the minor arcana, or “lesser secrets.”

    The many different tarot decks available will all portray symbolic imagery which must then pass through your psychic senses and, given the context of the questions asked, bring forth a tarot card meaning that significantly answers your question.
    I am a professional psychic and always have at least 4 different decks on the go at any one time. When a deck get’s a bit too well worn I buy a new deck (often from eBay). I prefer to work with as new a deck of cards as possible so the shuffle and deal smoothly and quickly. I usually sell my old decks on eBay too. Here’s a live RSS feed for Tarot Decks on eBay at the moment. http://feeds.feedburner.com//TarotDeck
