This is the third tarot deck that Ciro has created, and it's his best yet! I have his other two decks, The Gilded Tarot and Tarot of Dreams, and this is the most detailed if that's possible.
It seems that his decks have mirrored his mastery of the subject of Tarot in general. The Gilded is a good base foundation, with the Tarot of Dreams being more in depth. It also gave him and us a new way to experience Tarot, with the interactive DVD. This deck however has really gone even deeper. There is soon to be a website for this deck and each card with be animated! He has even created an entire world for his deck and it's characters to exist in.
There is a story of that world in the 300+ page book that accompanies the deck. The book is a wonderful resource, even if you don't normally like to read the "book meanings" there is wonderful insight as Ciro explains why he chose certain images or themes. I'm so thankful for the explanation he provides as to why the Knights are represented by their helmets, versus an actual knights. Brilliant! The book includes comments/interpretations by 3 other tarot experts. I really like the format used and would like something similar with other decks.
The card stock is the usual Llewellyn size and thickness which is always just fine. The deck has borders, but it's a "fade to black" effect which I quite like. It also come with the usual black bag. This deck is deserving of much more ornate storage however.
If you even remotely like Ciro's other decks this one is a MUST HAVE. I would have given the deck/book kit more than 5 stars if I could have.

"The Blind Ones had told of its coming, that which would bring about our destruction. No one doubted their wisdom, and we neither feared nor questioned their reason. We understood that we were, ourselves, of the stars, and our existence in this form is but an instant in eternity. We would cease to be part of the universe. But we lamented nonetheless." - From the companion book to the Legacy of the Divine Tarot (Gateway to the Divine Tarot)

Months ago, award-winning digital artist Ciro Marchetti came out with a self-published version of his third tarot deck, the Legacy of the Divine Tarot. Now, the mass-market edition from Llewellyn Worldwide has entered the world to much acclaim.

Creator of the well-received Gilded Tarot (Llewellyn) and the Tarot of Dreams (self-published), award-winning digital artist Ciro Marchetti unveils his latest and, supposedly his last, Tarot deck: the Legacy of the Divine Tarot.

Arguably his most aesthetically pleasing and stylistically uniform deck to date, the Legacy of the Divine Tarot begins with a back-story crafted by Ciro in the form of a 42-page self-published book. Although Ciro tells me he's "not a writer", one thing I'm certain about after reading the intriguing fictional history of this deck is that he is, indeed, an engaging storyteller!

There are so many neat touches within the card imagery that it's difficult to just pick a few to talk about--but here are some of my favorites from the Legacy of the Divine Tarot:

* The Empress - A pregnant young woman is surrounded by vibrant tokens of fertility, proliferation, ripeness and protectiveness--eggs in a nest, luscious fruits, scattering dandelion seeds, luxuriant vegetation, a rabbit, a whale and its baby, and so on.

Love the symbolism but the card stock is cheap making them hard to shuffle. A serious disappointment. I recently purchased the Tarot of Dreams by the same author and the cards are even thinner. What gives? Such lovely cards to be printed on such cheap card stock.

I have never used tarot cards before. But, I have been struggling with some issues related to my career and money. Most people in my situation would just ask their immediate family for advice, however, everytime I have done this in the past, all I ever got was..."That's not a good idea." or "Isn't somebody already doing that?" or some other negative remark.

Finally, I decided I'm just going to keep my ideas to myself and go forward without asking for anyone's advice or opinion.

That's what lead me to buying some tarot cards. I looked at many different sets and liked these cards the best for the following reasons:

1) Great reviews on Amazon.com.
2) There are 78 cards.
3) The pictures on the cards are unbelieveable.
4) The cards are made of quality card-stock. No thin, flimsy paper.
5) The meaning for each card is described in the 300 page book.
6) The book tells you how to layout the cards and interpret their meanings.

My cards were delivered. You get the book, the 78 colorful cards and a black, see-through pouch to hold your cards. The pouch material is kind of a black netting with a draw-string for the closure. It's enough to hold your cards together and you can see your cards through the material.

I looked at each of the cards; they were both colorful and beautiful.
I shuffled the deck and laid out the cards according to the description in the book. Next, I looked up the meaning for each of the cards. I was shocked at how accurate the meanings were to my personal issues and how they answered my question! And on the first reading !

I highly recommend these cards.
