The One Card Technique
Each card of The Enchanted Tarot embodies a very specific concept and psychology, and any one card can be selected as an answer to a question. Use the One Card technique until you become familiar with each card, but even then, this method is useful as a daily guide to your day’s activities, especially when time is precious. When using the One Card technique, if a single card falls from the deck while you are shuffling you need look no further, that card is your answer. Here’s an example:
Question: What should I keep in mind today at work?
Answer: Queen of Pentacles.
You are advised by your Higher Self to emulate the qualities described as particular to the Queen of Pentacles. It will further you to go about your tasks at work in a calm, friendly, and businesslike manner, paying attention to detail and material considerations. Playing the role of the intellectual or relying upon your verbal and creative skills will not do as well for you as showing others that you are not afraid of hard work. Helping deserving coworkers receive their due could also be indicated. Of course, the appearance of any card of Royalty can mean that a person of that temperament will soon appear in your life.

First, if you didn't read the dimensions in the description, this deck is LARGE - six and a half inches long to be exact. Unless you've got banana hands, riffle shuffling probably won't work. Don't say you weren't warned!
Comparing the Anniversary edition to the older editions, the image quality looks improved. The colors have been adjusted and some of the finer details are more apparent. Considering each image is an entire tapestry, I'm impressed we get as much detail as we do, and the larger size certainly helps in that regard.
The color-coding system is back, this time as a fully colored, subtly patterned border. I personally like it (more than the original solid colored, stripey-looking borders of the original) The pattern on the border is mirrored in the card backs in an attractive and neutral beige and gold. Also, completely reversible.
One tidbit I love: no obnoxiously placed copyrights on the cards! Unlike the first two decks, the card faces and backs are not marred by distracting copyrights.
The book is mostly unchanged in terms of content. Full color pictures of the cards accompany a page devoted to their descriptions and meanings, but they have also added a Quick Read portion if you just want the basic reading. Also, and most helpfully, the new book has an illustrated index. If you're someone who decides to remove the borders and text from the cards entirely, this would be helpful if you lose track of what a card actually is.
And finally, the box is beautiful and sturdy with a magnetic closure, and the eggplant purple velvet bag with gold toned drawstring suits the deck perfectly.
One interesting thing I noticed - the images on the Anniversary edition have almost the exact same dimensions as the original deck as a whole. So if you trim this new deck to be completely borderless, you'll end up with a deck the same size as the original. I've included pictures to compare.
I have been reading the tarot and collecting decks for so many years that, while pretty, many decks these days just don't seem to be anything to write home about when it comes to the way that they actually read. As a professional tarot reader for a living, this aspect is of course incredibly important to me. Not only does a deck need to be beautiful, but it needs to also be very functional too. Not all of the decks I collect get used in my private practice, but this one has stolen the show and found itself in a place of honour amongst my shelves and shelves of tarot and Oracle decks. It really takes me back to same sense of excitement and wonder that I experienced when I first fell in love with the 78 cards and their messages and meanings, many years ago. That alone is magickal!
The size of these cards is rather large, but I am able to shuffle them with ease despite my small hands, and the velour bag that comes with them is positively sumptuous. The whole ensemble just feels so decadent and yet it's an absolute workhorse for practical readings and client work. Can't say enough good things about this set in terms of not only the incredible fabric collage work and textured aesthetic, but it's accuracy and usability. Amazon only allows me five stars, but this 25th anniversary edition really deserves ten.
Bonus: It's a Thoth styled deck! Very difficult to find anything so beautiful outside of your standard Rider-Waite-Smith format these days and this was a very pleasant surprise!
If you overlook the size of the cards, the overall quality of the cards and the card stock and packaging are great for the price which includes: the box, cards,pouch,and accompanying booklet.
