Best Decks for Learning Tarot

When learning to read Tarot, the learning curve can be shortened by using an RWS (Rider-Waite-Smith) deck, an RWS clone deck, or at least a deck that closely follows RWS and is richly illustrated. Once you learn how to read an RWS deck (or one close to it), you will be able to read ANY deck with ease.
