Rider-Waite vs. Gilded Tarot Decks
In the Rider-Waite Deck, which includes the Star. Thanks to 1nluv, this card appears in the Daily tarot. Now, it is my hope to figure out how to have Wands appear alongside the Star.
Both the Rider-Waite and the Gilded Tarot contain 10 Wands cards. Even though, I almost agree with others about non-binary language, I am reluctant to flat out agree, because binary is frequently straighter to the point. This means, the 10 Wands Cards fit into the category of non-court cards. They are the cards that grant the court cards reasons to have courts at all.
According to https://tarot-heritage.com/2021/01/28/the-fifteenth-century-charles-vi-deck-recreated-by-marco-benedetti/#more-2702, the first Gilded Tarot deck is “The So-Called Charles VI Deck”. If this deck was commissioned by Charles VI, then it was created in 1392. Furthermore, based on this condition, would mean the Gilded Tarot is much older than the Rider-Waite, which was created and published in the early part of the 20th century. Though most, including Carlos, are more familiar with Rider-Waite and the Gilded Tarot included with the Easy Tarot Handbook.
Carlos’ main reason for using the Gilded Tarot has to do with the border around the card. it makes the card pop out to him. Whereas, the Rider-Waite feel more timeless. Plus, they have a simpler feel to them. Lastly, the Rider-Waite are within public domain.
