Tarot decks are amazing keys for unlocking your inner knowledge, but with literally hundreds of beautiful decks available, choosing one to begin your tarot journey with can be overwhelming. The illustrations, colors & symbolism, and style varies widely from deck to deck. Black and white decks offer a simplicity that can help cut out some of the confusion.
Color can be a big part of the meaning of each card and when you're first learning, deciphering the nuances of color symbolism can be distracting. With black and white decks, the imagery alone has to speak clearly and concisely. Their illustrations tend to be simpler and more minimalist, with potent symbolism that is easier to glean the meaning of than that of their color counterparts. Black and white decks have a magnifying, mirror-like quality to them. They reflect your inner knowledge, loud and clear.
Learning tarot card meanings and conducting your first readings can be time consuming and require a large output of energy. Daily readings are beneficial when you're starting out, but getting bogged down in deciphering meanings can quickly dampen your enthusiasm. The simplicity and reflective nature of black and white cards can offer quick, satisfying readings.
There are many things to consider when choosing a tarot deck.
Hopefully this has given you some helpful things to consider when choosing a black and white deck.
