Make sure you buy the companion book for this deck. Otherwise, there will be a few things that could confuse even an experienced card reader.
This deck uses White Tiger, Black Tortoise, Green Dragon, and Red Phoenix instead of Wands, Swords, Disks, and Cups. It also uses a "Transition" card instead of Death, etc. Although the little white book that comes with the cards tells you that White Tiger is the same as Swords, for example, the meanings of the cards and the use of Feng Shui principles, etc. is not fully explained.
Additionally, what would be wands and fire in this deck is actually black tortoise and water. What would be cups is instead fire. This is one thing I'm finding a little confusion in making the switch to this new deck. Working with this deck is going to take a little time getting used to, considering the differences. However, it is a very lovely deck, so I don't mind the trouble.
I have updated my review to include my over-time dislike of the small booklet that came with it. As others have mentioned, it does little to help those not already heavily involved in feng shui decipher the many esoteric meanings contained in the artwork. The accompanying text NEEDS more material. The creators cannot assume everyone knows the significance of each symbol as it is used by different parts of Asia.
The artwork also shows a lack of knowledge about traditional Chinese art and seems to blur the boundary between Chinese and Japanese pictorial traditions (it's not certain if this is purposeful or a case of mistaken identity).
Many people consider this sort of practice less than ethical and of a mindset which is profit oriented. No person versed in feng shui is against profit, or doing good business, but this deck is working some seriously shar chi by appropriating other cultures.
Richard Craze's feng shui deck is grounded and representative of a better option. The Mah Jongg Oracle by Derek Walters is also back in print(Fortune Teller's Mah Jong), and both are much better option for those interested in geomancy, cartomancy decks, Chinese divination, and metaphysics.
