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 color on the border surrounding the cards varies. There is ample border to allow enough space for labels on top and key phrases on bottom. However, unlike many other Tarots, the space allowed for the image on the card varies between Major Arcana, Court Cards and Pip Cards; the Major Arcana have the least while the Pip Cards have the most.
On the Major Arcana, the border around the image is purple. Each Major Arcana is numbered and labeled at the top. The name of the corresponding archangel is written just below the card name. A few key phrases are written at the bottom. These cards are numbered 0 to 21 starting with The Fool. Justice is 8 while Strength is 11. Some of the cards have been renamed to complement the "positive" theme of this deck:
0. The Dreamer - 0. The Fool
5. Unity - V. The Hierophant
12. Awakening - XII. The Hanged Man
13. Release - XIII. Death
14. Balance - XIV. Temperance
15. Ego - XV. The Devil
16. Life Experience - XVI. The Tower
20. Renewal - XX. Judgment
Some of these cards repeat the imagery with minor alterations. This is the case of The Fool and Ego which repeat the image of the fool, and The Emperor and The Wheel which repeat the image of Archangel Michael.Read more ›
