This was my first tarot deck. None of the "traditional" decks such as the Rider-Waite appealed to me at all. When I found this deck, there was an immediate feeling of connection.
Memorizing card meanings isn't my strong suit; I've found that for me, with this deck, meanings come through very clearly simply through the artwork. While they don't always correspond with the "book" descriptions, they're invariably accurate. (YMMV, as always.)
The images are somewhat fantasy-inspired drawings in mainly pastel colors, with much herbal and floral symbolism. Be sure to watch the details on the cards- the backgrounds may offer hints that will help clarify your reading.
Each suit has a base color corresponding to it's element (swords-air-yellow, cauldrons-water-blue, etc.). Each card also has a distinct "personality" to it, unlike some decks that seem to use the same face for all the queens, or kings.
For those concerned about such things, there is some straightforward nudity on a few of the major arcana cards, but nothing crude or salacious.
All in all a deck that I enjoy working with, and also simply enjoy looking at.

I just recently bought this deck. I'm very interested in Wicca so I wanted a deck that reflected the Wicca feeling. And it does.
I bought this deck after reading several reviews, some of them talked about little bits of silver on the major cards. This seems to be the case only with OLDER decks. The new decks don't have any silver. This was a bit disappointing for me, but I still think this is a beautiful deck.
The majors are very well done. But the amount of white on the minor cards takes some getting used to, and they could have been nicer if they had a bit more colour. Some of the mouths on the minor cards look weird, and the teeth are a bit strange. But the eyes are great, really well done.
The cards are very detailed; I see something new every time I look at them. I would recommend this deck, but it might be nicer to get an older, secondhand, deck; with the bits of silver on it.

This is the deck I use when reading for Pagans/Wiccans/Witches of all Paths. The images are often in-your-face and like the Dark Mother as a deck used for readings it suffers no fools (in other words, I wouldn't use it for reading after reading for the same person asking the same thing each time......) but will bring about Truth one way or the other - there's a LOT to see in each card and I believe it transcends Tradition. This isn't just for Wiccans or Pagans of various paths, it's for those who walk their talk. If you want a deck with the bright colors and images, go for something more like the Robin Wood Tarot, this one isn't bright and shiny - it's deep and thought-provoking.

Well worth reading these cards - my one suggestion: Toss the wee book that comes with it. The cards will tell you what they mean more than any book can.

This was one of those decks that came out after the Tarot geyser began spewing a new deck each month, so I initially ignored it. Many years later I was to pick up a copy after my tarot revival and was pleasantly surprised. This deck is wonderful as far as the traditional meanings are concerned.

As far as the updates to new meanings are concerned-referring to the archetypal Rider-Waite style-I was very happy with Death becoming the Close and Judgement becoming Karma. How insightful and modern. The major Trumps all ring musical insight into my readings.

That brings me to my problems with this Pack. The minor trumps fall short. For starters, there are no ethnic repesentations here. True, this design is specifically based on European pagan traditions. Pagans are all caucasian, right? Anyway, that is beside the point. These minors lack the depth of the majors. I do like the Flower language referred to in them.

Never the less, this deck is an important addition to any collection. The colors are conducive to a warm summer afternoon suited for readings and meditation. Young beginners would find this an excellent launching pad for occult dabblings of all sort. Green gardening, outdoor full moon rites...

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Anthony Louis on July 9, 2011
I only recently came across this deck. Having seen the images online, I decided to order a copy. What a beautiful deck! The artistry is magnificent. The character's faces are the most expressive of any deck I have ever seen. The colors are rich and vibrant. The deck itself is a Waite-Smith clone but the artist adds some clever twists and nuances to the basic Waite-Smith imagery. I found some of the trumps a little weak. They tended to gloss over the more difficult aspects of life and even rename the Death card "the Close." Now every time I draw that card I think of Kyra Sedgwick in The Closer. I guess Death acts as kind of a closer, though. Some of the trumps are brilliantly executed, but I prefer the medieval-Renaissance imagery of the early tarot decks.

In any case, this is a wonderful deck and I highly recommend it. The images are beautiful and evocative and lend themselves to ease of use in readings. The LWB that explains the card meanings is very well done too and is also in the Waite-Smith tradition. I haven't read the larger book that goes with this deck, but several reviewers have said that it does not add much more information than what is already in the LWB, so it may not be worth an extra ten bucks. In the short time that I've owned this deck, it has become one of my favorites.
