There are 78 cards just as you would find in the traditional Tarot, but this deck only uses gentle words and images. Some words have been changed for certain cards that would exist in a regular Tarot. You won't find the "Devil" card in this deck, but an alternative name, "Ego". There is also no "Tower" card which is usually a frightening image in the traditional Tarot, but in this deck is more appropriately titled for me, "Life Experience".
The Major Arcana exists in the deck, but each card corresponds to a specific Archangel.Read more ›

However, I do believe the Doreen Virtue Angel Tarot is a legitimate contribution to the tarot corpus, and I am glad a friend lent me her copy so I could give it a legitimate review.
Angel Tarot Cards (yes, that is the official title) looks like a typical Doreen Virtue oracle. It is oversized, printed on very sturdy stock and packaged in a lovely box with a small but substantial booklet. Because of their size and sturdiness, the cards are a bit hard to handle, but lovely to behold.
The deck is a standard 78 card tarot deck in many respects. The artwork is gorgeous, but there are few visual clues in each picture about what the card might actually mean. Never fear, there are interpretations written on each card. There is no need to actually intuit or study anything. This is a boon for new tarot readers, or for those who want to use the deck as a simple, easy oracle.
I like many of the written interpretations on the cards and in the booklet. Virtue and I agree that every tarot card can have an uplifting meaning. The punctuation on some of the interpretations summons my inner grammar police. The interpretations are a mishmash of full sentences and key words, but each thought is punctuated with a full stop. Apparently angels find no need for complete sentences or proper punctuation. We can't really blame the deck designers for this; many other oracle creators are guilty of the same lazy crime against the English language.Read more ›
The images on the cards possess the same air-brushed/dreamy quality as the other Doreen Virtue oracle decks (Archangel Michael Oracle Cards: A 44-Card Deck and Guidebook, Archangel Raphael Healing Oracle Cards: A 44-Card Deck and Guidebook, or Ascended Masters Oracle Cards: 44-Card Deck and guidebook--I believe this to be her first venture into tarot and as Virtue wisdom (and business) is centered around angel communication this tarot deck seems a fitting addition to an already widely arrayed offering.
However as someone who is by no means an expert, but who has become accustomed to the aspects of tarot, some of which may be deemed frightening to some--Virtue claims that this tarot is "gentle, safe and trustworthy," I find the floaty images on the minor Arcana to be insignificant. Yes, like the Marseilles Deck, this minor arcana depicts the suit as a number, leaving it up to the reader to interpret through their experience and wisdom the appearance of the card in the reading.Read more ›
