As a beginner, cards such as the death card and the tower card were particularly disturbing to me, so to replace the images with pictures of great goddesses was the only way I could feel comfortable working with the tarot.
I've outgrown this deck for general purposes, but whenever I need guidance I find myself returning to this deck. This deck is more spiritual than any other deck out there and very gentle. It's really a very beautiful deck.
The reason I don't use this deck all the time anymore is that the imagery of the tarot is really what speaks to me when I do readings. The major arcana in this Goddess deck consists of goddesses, thus much of the imagery is hard for me to delve into and get a good 'vibe' from without spending hours researching and working with each goddess. Also, I grew less afraid of the scarier images, and once I put that fear aside, the traditional tarot blossomed since I wasn't hesitant to handle it anymore.
The Goddess Tarot is a beautiful deck. It's feminine in the best sense of the word. It's client friendly, children friendly, and beginner friendly with its gentle images. Sometimes when doing readings face to face with a querent, I'll pull out the Goddess Tarot deck with more jittery persons. There are some people that jump out of their chair when they see the death, tower, or devil card. It sounds and looks much gentler in this deck. Instead of Death you have Transformation. Instead of the Devil you have Temptation.
It's really a deck that anybody can benefit from, even if it's just to appreciate its asthetic beauty.
Each card has an intricate border that adds to the overall feel. The border on each Major card is unique and related to its Goddess. For example, Tradition/Juno is surrounded by two peacocks and little olive trees. Beginnings/Tara is bordered by a thick green forest with a tiger peaking out. There are 4 types of borders for the Minors related to its element. Pentacles have flowers with doves flying above, cups have rough blue waves, staves (wands) have a red and orange volcanic landscape. I just wish the border for swords had a more prominent feeling of air. It's a landscape of arid, craggy mountains, with a waterfall to one side. Only the very top of the border shows a few clouds.
I love the inclusion of Goddesses that are less "popular" in today's Pagan community as well as drawing from multi-ethnic backgrounds. Personally I think Waldherr does a richer, more evocative job with her non-European subjects and those cards tend to be my favorites. I don't like Gwenhwyfar being included on the Judgment card, as she is a legend, not a Goddess, though her card is very beautiful.
My biggest problem with the deck is that the little white book strikes me as being written after the deck was completed and tries to paint the deck as being more feminist than it really is as well as being more imaginative in scope.Read more ›
I think the deck is very user friendly and I enjoy its different focus. So many women seek out Tarot readings to help them work through and understand the influence of the men in their lives upon their lives. This deck is so useful for keeping querants focused on their own issues and their own well-being.
