I enjoy the look and feel of the deck and this accompanying (or stand alone)book is complete. Celtic lore has been overlaid on the concept of tarot in creating the deck (druids embraced an oral tradition, not cards). In truth, I significantly expanded my tarot collection at the time of my last move (exhausted in the eves from packing, unpacking, working, log in to the internet and think "I deserve a present" and in an order for a few decks would go). This is significant to the review as I don't ...more

Here, for the first time, is a tarot that combines the two fundamental spiritualities of Nature - Wicca and Druidry - and reflects the explosion of interest in the western magical traditional and paganism. This is a full deck of 78 cards, each a superb work of art, with a text by prominent authors. The deck is original in many ways includes a 190 page book with instructions and insights.

This is my all time favorite tarot deck. The cards are stunningly beautiful and filled with symbolism. The accompanying book is a clear and lucid guide as to how the cards can be used.

As with the previous book about oracle cards I also have to say here that I do not believe in oracles or the Tarot. I bought this set containing the card deck as well as a book with instructions because the deck was so very beautiful.

The book:
The book was written by the same authors that also wrote and published the book about oracle cards that I've finished only yesterday - and one notices.
Here as well as in the other book the single cards are being described with key words, the cards' meaning

I had never been one for Tarot or Tarot never seemed to want me. The Runes, as a means of divination, meditation and guidance have always been my 'way'. However, one day I had an urge to go for the Tarot . I found myself buying the 'Ryder Waite' deck however, I could not really relate to this and was just about to give up on the Tarot until I stumbled upon this deck!

Beautifully painted and created with such gorgeous imagery and symbolism, some of these cards should be framed! I found them inspi

One of the most skillfully drawn tarot decks I know about, based on the Rider-Waite deck. Much easier to use than the awesome Haindl tarot deck (still my favourite one, that is inspired by the difficult Aleister Crowley deck). Philip and Stephanie Carr-Gomm's comments are convincing and elaborate in most of its parts. An inspiring read, especially (but not only!) for those interested in natural religion or neo-paganism. If you like Will Worthington's drawings, please check out his other works, e ...more

The book included with this deck is excellent, not your usual booklet of basic meanings, but a detailed guide to the symbolism and stories behind the artwork on the cards. The cards themselves are gorgeous. There is also a section at the end on how to use the cards that had several spreads I have never tried before. Looking forward to working with the new cards and new spreads and learning more as I go.

My favourite deck by far! The Druidcraft Tarot deck is beautiful, obnoxiously accurate, but most of all, very positive. A lot of tarot decks spread doom and gloom with a reversed reading. And while the Druidcraft Tarot also covers this, is still manages to help you along, leaving you energized and ready to face whatever it is you're struggling with.

An excellent represtentation of Tarot, with beautiful cards and easy to understand explanation of each card.
What I like best is it gives Keywords that represent the cards.
If you're into Tarot, this is a wonderful set to own.
Any time I've used them, they read true.

This is a fantastic deck and book for tarot.. Mine is now about 10 years and worn and torn to the point that I had to tape it all over.. The images are gorgeous, the lessons profound, can deeply recommend anyone getting a deck of tarot to get this one!

A very beatiful tarot deck. The illustration for the princess of cups is exquisite. Also, it is easier to use than some decks, possiblybecuase of the accompanying book.

Love the cards and the book. The art is beautiful and the meanings make sense to me. I especially like that the book includes different card spreads, so you can find your own preferred spread.

Loved it as I got it but the amazement diminished and I got back to the Waite tarot. The pictures get boring with time.
