I first saw this deck in 2007 at my favorite metaphysical store. I knew right away it was special when the owners told me the deck was so popular she couldn’t keep it in stock for long. I haven’t heard that about any Tarot deck before, so of course I had to buy it and see for myself.

The deck is a standard 78-card deck with Rider-Waite-based images. But the first thing I noticed was the colors; they are incredibly powerful and bright, much more so than many decks I have seen. They seem to radiate

Ok, I know what you’re thinking. “What is a tarot book doing here? OMG!!!” But it’s ok, I promise, I’m not mad, and I’m not even suggesting you read it, this book is only for the leisure of those who read cards, me being one of them.

I put this book up because when I started reading cards three years ago, I desperately wish I’d had this book at my side. I only picked it up two weeks ago and the depth of which this book teaches you is incredible.

Things are explained clearly and all throughout you

Well, this will make me go down in the estimation of all those folks out there who need to be very serious in their approach to things. I bought this deck (and accompanying book) because it is pretty, no, let me correct that, because it is beautiful. I have a significant collection of Tarot and this is the most beautiful of them all. Friends who also have more than 3 decks lust after this one. The cards and meaning of the cards they outline in their book is definately a gentler approach than in ...more

I definetly liked the fact that this companion had spaces to write about the cards in the book itself. Not only do they give you a description of the meaning of the cards themselves, they give you space to write your own interpritation.

Tarot - as a divination medium - has never really 'spoken' to me personally. I've had others read my tarot and they have been uncannily accurate. This just isn't the medium for me. Nor was the book all that helpful.

Not saying it's a bad book. I'm just not into it.
My first tarot reading was done with this beautiful deck and I've been in love with it ever since. Thankfully, hubs got me the deck as a surprise gift. :3 The theme has an Arthurian/Avalonian feel to it. So so beautiful!!! <3 <3 ...more

The tarot has been a part of my personal and professional life for nearly twenty years. I first discovered the Tarot in college. Right from the start, the tarot intrigued me with its marvelous blending of mythology, psychology, art, history mystery, and magic.

My education in the tarot has been and continues to be broad and enlightening. I am grateful to have been blessed with the opportunity to s
