This deck is beautifully colored and the artwork is fantastic.

First time readers should not be concerned that the deck will lose them, it lends itself well to readers of all levels.

I was so happy to have found another unopened set of these same cards, seeing as they're now out of print.

Only 1,000 words??? Oh my! Let me begin by saying that I know absolutely nothing about tarot. I am 34 years old, and I've had a reading done once in my lifetime. I am, however, presently exploring my less rational/logical side...if that makes any sense...in a number of different ways. I am also a great lover of cats. Even the most recent stray to come to my house is a "lion dog" (Chow-Chow) and I was born, and exhibit all the traits of, a Leo. Lion (the chow) now joins my three-cat-(also former strays)-household as a member of this heavily feline-influenced family. Back to tarot -- this deck is absolutely beautiful for cat lovers! It seems to me, as uneducated as I am about tarot in general, that the facial features of the cats when compared to the humans on each card, is important in some way. I'll leave that observation for other explorers to figure out. I strongly recommend, for those equally as ignorant as I am, that they order the cards WITH the book. I should think that, no matter what deck a reader choses, the concise information about each of the cards as provided in this book would be helpful. Also, there is a very helpful 10-card layout grid, not mentioned in the review, which has assisted me tremendously. I got my set today (along with 2 others which I haven't opened yet), and immediately gave myself 2 readings on different topics. I had one cat on the table and the newly-adopted chow-chow at my feet. I was VERY impressed at the accuracy of the cards to my present life situation. I should probably add here that, prior to my experience with these cards 30 minutes ago, I was at best a skeptic and at worst a total disbeliever.Read more ›

This is the 5th of my 7 (so far) decks.

The artwork for this deck was originally done as large format paintings, and it shows in the detail. The book, available individually or in the boxed set, gives the standard US Games card interpretations, as well as a creative and detailed 'travellers report'. Written from the perspective of a deep space exploration team, the book makes the deck especially enjoyable for science fiction fans. The illustrations have a fantasy feel, using lush costumes, jewelry, and settings. Of course, the deck is a _must have_ for cat lovers--there are cats on EVERY card, even in the position usually taken by the dog on the Fool card.

The artwork and interpretation of the cards definitely sets the right tone for a reading, and the deck stands alone purely on its artistic value. If you get the deck, I would strongly suggest getting the box set, or buying the book separately, as the booklet in the deck is the standard US Games booklet and gives only basic interpretations.

This deck is my 3rd favorite. The Aquarian deck is my favorite.

I bought this deck many years ago- and though I've bought many since, it remains a trusted friend and companion. Though I can't speak for this precise printing of the set (mine were printed in 1984- this is a reissue so I can't speak for the color quality or stock quality)- I can talk of its general performance.

Though this deck was my first venture into Tarot, I strongly advise if you are new: You may wish another deck. This is highly a fantasy deck- relying on you having already understood some of the most basic symbolism inherent to the cards. The elemental symbolism of the suites is heavily downplayed though still present- one must look close to catch the meanings beyond those simply laid out in a laundry list in the book. However, in a rare turn around, the artist took into account the fact some suites represent certain aspects of a person's physical features as well and honored them in the designs of the humans in this deck. If you are someone who generally has a hard time picking a card to represent the questioner- that aspect at least is made easy.

There is also the major arcana to take into account- some of which are changed from the more typical 22 cards seen in a Marseilles style deck. The Pope has become the High Priest- while Judgment has become Rejuvenation. Beyond that odd seeming swap around, the Major Arcana are very easy to understand and interpret by their art alone- the minor arcana however are much more difficult. In these you see this is by in large a story deck, bordering on novelty. The cards retain their meaning and symbolism, but it's presented in odd ways that are sure to throw a new reader.

I know it certainly took me a very long time to get the hang of it, having this be my first deck...though now it remains one of my most beloved decks.

I have loved and done my best to learn tarot from a very young and impressionable age...11. I have learned a thing or two for myself about the amazing gift such 'books' really are. I had for a while, when means became available to me, amassed quite a growing collection. So much beauty , you see. Through all of this seek and seek more, I've found two decks that really work for me. The most profound that I've found have been the Thoth deck By Crowley. Never fails, a bit scary actually. And the other being this Cat People deck.
The images and the descriptives are spot on. The art in this one in incredible, to me, the meanings always resound. Whether or not you love the feline, you might want to give it a look or two. Or many more. Thoth and Cat People... my two faves. As always, find out for yourself. I highly advise.
