Do Tarot card meanings differ depending on what deck you’re using?
Does The High Priestess in the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot deck have the same meaning in The Druidcraft Tarot or the Shadowscapes Tarot?
Yes AND No!
Let me break it down for you and show you how to read Tarot like a pro – regardless of what Tarot deck you’re using…
When reading Tarot with different Tarot decks, keep these things in mind:
1) Each Tarot card has a basic meaning, which typically will not vary much from deck to deck. Think of this as the underlying structure of the card, like a blueprint for a building.
2) Each Tarot deck will depict the cards a bit differently. The underlying structure of the card remains the same, but the artistic differences are like interior decorating – they add a different twist to the basic structure/meaning.
3) Your initial interpretation of a Tarot card will remain very similar, regardless of what deck you’re using – but how you elaborate on that meaning will differ, depending on what images and symbols appear on the card.
Good luck & happy Tarot reading!
