PS It came 10 days earlier! That is great!
A few months later and I still wouldn't trade these cards for ANY other deck. When I first chose this deck it was because it called to me. Yesterday was the first time since a second deck has called to me ALMOST as strongly haha. I still use Osho in my readings but only for my clients who are attracted to it (since then I've only attained 3 other decks). Also I now charge for my readings but at a pretty resonable price. Still great feedback. I am very grateful to have come across this deck <3 I hope those who bought it have a similar experience. Stay blessed x
The deck may be frustrating to Western readers or clients because it will most often counsel not taking forceful action in a situation, true to the underlying Zen/Taoist philosophy of the deck. In my long experience with the deck (I've worn out two), it's usually right to do so when it does, but very few people want to hear that.
My only issues are:
1. I dislike the extra major arcana card that represents Osho. It can simply be removed if desired.
2. The cards of the Mind/Clouds suit correspond to the Swords of tarot, and are therefore largely negative, often entirely so. That corresponds with Osho's philosophy, but rubs me in every possible wrong way. A little knowledge of the meaning of the traditional Swords will help bring some balance to interpretation. For example, the Two of Swords traditionally means a decision must be made -- most often a difficult one that must be struggled with, but not necessarily a no-win or impossible one. The Two of Clouds is called Schizophrenia and is entirely negative.
3. I'd love to get my hands on and restructure the book (which is otherwise excellent). The order of the books is major arcana, court cards of each minor suit, then each minor suit beginning with the 2s and ending with the aces. That makes it not the easiest book to look up a card quickly in.
As soon as I opened them, I could tell that these cards were going to be my best friends.
They are so accurate and they bring so much wisdom in a way that amazes and delights me In so many ways.
The booklet that comes with the tarot cards shares wisdom and interpretation that creates this perfect picture of synchronicity and explains the imagery in a way that puts the puzzle pieces togeather for me.
I have about 40 tarot and oracle cards put togeather and this is by far my favorite. A MUST have for the dedicated spiritualist. xx
