3 of Cups from the Morgan Greer Tarot

One of my favorite decks since I was a teen, the Morgan-Greer Tarot features a highly accessible, friendly style of art. The deck was created in 1979, so it's no surprise that the artwork has a sort of 70's feel.

Created based on the Rider Waite Smith pattern of tarot card decks, the Morgan-Greer Tarot features fully illustrated pip cards and scenes very similar to what is depicted in the Rider Waite Smith tarot deck. The art is significantly altered, but the same characters are pictured, doing the same things.

With color, on the other hand, this deck takes a significantly different tack. The colors in the Morgan-Greer tarot are rich and vibrant, centering around jewel tones.

The characters in this deck look friendly and approachable, which is one of the reasons I love it so much -- readings seem so much friendlier with the Morgan Greer Tarot.
