It has a total of 78 cards, which divided into 2 sections (tha major arcana and minor arcana).
The major arcana 22 cards that are numbered 0 to 21.
The minor arcana has 56 cards that are divided into 4 suits.
These suits are Wands, Cups, Swords, and Pentacles. 14 cards are in each suit, and are numbered from Ace to 10, and 4 court cards.
The court cards are Page, Knight, King, and Queen.
th names of the court cards do vary in some decks. i have decks that have princesses and princes rather than pages and knights. ladies and lords instead of queens and kings etc. they do mean the same things as the traditional titles however

I agree with Levi. Some Tarot decks are standart ,as described by Universia .Another ones can be not so standart when it comes to names of the suit cards or the names of so called court cards .However the standart decks are more suitable for begginers ,than non standart ones .
