—Tim Wheater, award-winning composer, flautist, vocalist, teacher, and public speaker
"The Sirian Starseed Tarot, a tool for higher consciousness and soul awakening, is simply amazing. The images in this deck are vibrant and stunning – full of energy. Even the card backs, featuring the Sirian Seal, give off energy. Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha have created an amazing deck with unlimited possibilities."

"I have to say The Sirian Starseed Tarot is definitely elegantly done and has beautiful illustrations by Patricia Cori and Alysa Bartha. I found the reading to be uplifting and inspiring and enjoy the set very much."
"The Sirian Starseed Tarot is a beautifully crafted journey through the cosmos in the search of Soul—a full circle journey of enlightenment and illumination."
"The Sirian Starseed Tarot is most creditable not just for breathing fresh life into a very old divination system but much more importantly for acting as a tool that must surely speak more openly and directly to a new generation of spiritual initiates. In this regard there is a very real possibility that this Tarot deck will quickly become the manual of choice for Indigo Starseeds all over the world – a ground-plan for those highly evolved individuals currently being seeded onto this planet and who, through this Tarot deck, are being offered the opportunity to activate the crystalline patterns of coded energy forms that were first seeded into their DNA at birth."
—Mysteries of Sirius
"Visionary author Patricia Cori and metaphysical artist Alysa Bartha have collaborated together to bring a new consciousness to the tried and tested realm of the Tarot. Weaving together the world-reknowned teachings deiivered through Cori’s best-selling books with Tarot traditions of the past, they present a new interpretation of the exquisite journey of self-discovery hidden in the Tarot’s archetypal symbols and meanings."
"When I opened the box I gasped! This is the most amazing deck of tarot cards I’ve ever seen. Patricia, you’ve done it again!"

"This alchemical restructuring of the tarot is done masterfully...the [Sirian Starseed Tarot] is the perfect blend of classical and modern wisdom."
"Not only a gorgeous deck to behold, but a truly helpful and astounding tool of spiritual discovery...I have never had a deck that immediately attempted to speak to me on the soul level in the very first reading with it. When I received the Sirian Starseed Tarot and opened the package I could feel its energy already reaching out to me. That is incredibly rare."
"As a work of creative inspiration and devotion to spirit The Sirian Starseed Tarot seeks to reconnect an ancient divination system with its true magickal heritage."
"Tarot eye candy with a spiritual message? Yes please!"
"The moment I looked at the cards I had drawn, I realised that this would be a profoundly enlightening reading."
"I absolutely love The Sirian Starseed Tarot. I recommend the Sirian Starseed Tarot to those who look to the stars in the night sky and long to return home, and to those who hear a calling to bring the message of the star people to the planet Earth."
—Christiana's Tarot Topics
"If you like digital photography and art tarot decks, this is a pretty decent one, and the size of the cards means the deck lends itself easily to meditational or visualization work."
"If you are wanting to learn intuitive reading or already do intuitive readings you can’t go wrong with The Sirian Starseed Tarot. Once you have this deck in your hands it will not take long to understand why I am describing this as powerful. This deck opened that part of me up so quickly that I did experience a bit of a “head rush.” One needs to be prepared to turn their “psychic switch” on even when only going through the cards individually as I was."
—Tarot by Misha
"This is a good deck for anyone who believes in this system of The Sirian High Council, or who is at least curious about it. I used it for both deep, spiritual questions, and every day mundane things, and it answered both with equal aplomb. While it did read at a very positive level, it also tackled shadow issues for me, and made me think deeply."
—78 Whispers in My Ear
"The spirit of the Sirian Starseed Tarot makes this the perfect deck for exploring deeper knowledge, understanding, conscious shift, spiritual growth and life purpose."
“I collected tarot in the past and then I lost interest, but then I received [Patricia Cori’s] beautiful Sirian Starseed Tarot and now I’m reading again. This is my deck … this is the one I’m using. It’s truly amazing.”
—Gary Goldberg, In the Spirit Radio
“Thank you so much for producing your deck, the Sirian Starseed Tarot. I have been waiting for such a deck for over ten years to hit the market!”

Patricia Cori has put a lot of thought into this re-envisioned deck. The traditional decks seemed more geared toward divining actual events, people and psychological states. This deck can be used in that way, but Cori has obviously designed it to help people on their spiritual paths. For example instead of saying, the 3 of swords means a breakup or heartache is coming, Cori starts with a description and explanation of the card image and then poses several questions to help the reader or seeker think about how the card reflects their journey. A sample question for thought for the 3 swords is, "What core beliefs or convictions have to be let go of, in order to allow the possibility of a whole new paradigm to come forward?"
Cards that perhaps made people uneasy in the traditional decks like Death, The Devil, and the 3, 10 and 9 of swords have been re-imagined. This doesn't mean the deck is all fairies and lightness. There is darkness in the deck too, but it is darkness tempered with the promise of relief if the user assesses the situation and him/herself honestly. I find the deck is well balanced in that respect, neither too harsh nor filled with forced positive thinking. Death is Transition and the picture shows a woman's spirit flowing out of her body into a tunnel of light. Very peaceful and beautiful. If you use reversals, Cori's advice is quite simple and straightforward. She suggests the energy is not in full bloom, the key is still not manifesting and it is going to take a bit longer to come to full power, there is something blocking the energy, but also advises the user to find their own "measure" and trust it.
As I have just received the deck, I have mostly been enjoying the images and reading the accompanying small approximately 85 page booklet that comes with it. So far I have only done one reading for myself and the cards were accurate for me. The booklet is the same size as the cards and stores in the box. I prefer this to the set where the book is separate and larger than the cards/box. I also prefer the 2 part pull apart box design which is sturdy instead of the flimsier type with the flap. A friend also ordered this deck and I am sure we are going to enjoy our decks.
With many improvements geared to a more spiritual take on worldly events, the deck is still recognizable for those used to the traditional Rider Waite. The suits are changed as follows: Orbs=Swords, Chalices=Cups, Crystals=Pentacles and Fire=Wands but most of the cards retain the essential elements of their original imagery. This means it is accessible to fairly new readers and even beginners. One issue with the Rider Waite that can limit new reader's interpretations is its reference throughout the minor arcana to strictly mundane rather than spiritual events. If you want to know the basic who, what, and where of a situation, the minor cards and people cards will usually give you a fairly accurate description of an event. While this pleases and even wows most people who want a reading, those seeking to solve personal issues with a spiritual base will be less served. The non-material value of that event is usually lost unless the reader is astute enough to ask the right questions or intuitive enough to see deeply into the person's life philosophy.
In most decks, while the traditional meanings of the Ace through ten cards focus on their value as external events, it is left to the major arcana to inject spirituality, and to the reader to figure out just what that relationship is. Experienced readers who have done their own inner work can usually bridge the gap, but new readers run the risk of adhering too literally to the card images and missing the "big picture." This disconnect is well bridged both by the cards and the booklet that Cori provides.
A good example of the differences in Cori's cards and interpretations is the infamous Seven or Swords. It normally depicts a sly looking person running off with a bunch of swords. Its traditional meaning is duplicity, a thief in your midst who works behind the scenes to steal the swords, or means of victory. As morning dawns the opponent has no weapons with which to fight. Scenarios come to mind of everything from a lying boyfriend to the corporate espionage of Wall Street. It is easy to point fingers when this card comes up. We have a rogue in our midst! He needs to be discovered or something of value will be taken. What is left out of the discussion is the whole idea of grasping as a way of life.
Cori's interpretation for the seven of Orbs (Swords) focuses on the weight of things being taken rather than just the taker. In the Starseed we see a man in a balloon trying to grab all the orbs in the sky. He does not realize that this will surely crash his balloon and make him a prisoner of his own greed. So the meaning of the card is shifted slightly. Instead of arousing our need to punish a bad guy, we are asked to contemplate the spiritual weight of his greed. In this way we are both warned about the proclivities of the person in question and asked to consider the real cost to ourselves of hanging on to the thing we risk losing. Many of the minor cards in the Starseed have been given a similar twist from material to spiritual consideration.
Changes to the major arcana are many and will delight readers who find traditional images like the Hierophant being depicted as a Pope limiting. Cori starts with a replacement for the Fool in the form of a ball of energy that looks like a meteor descending toward a group of crystals. I like this image better than the hapless, medieval image of a cosmic clown because it suggests the descent of an informed spiritual intention entering the world of matter (remember Crystals=Pentacles the traditional earth suit). It also transforms the Fool from a card of choice of paths to one of remembrance and reuniting with one's soul mission.
The Magician is also transformed. Traditionally his raised arm channels universal forces to do his bidding in the world. Here he becomes an Indigo child with images of the earth for eyes. The Magician's dominion over all the suits has changed slightly. He has become the force the Magician conjured and is no longer beholding to rituals and manipulation of forces. There is no need to reach outside him, only to wisely use that which has been given. Other major arcana cards which have undergone name changes are Temperance=Alchemy, Judgment=Karma, Death=Transition, Devil=Shadow, World=Ascension, Emperor=Reason, Empress=Abundance. And then there is my personal favorite Hierophant=Guidance; the idea that we do not need human intermediaries between ourselves and the creator, nor a King-like god to rule over us is a concept whose time has definitely come.
The main drawback to these cards, especially when being used to do readings for others is finding a space large enough to spread them out and having hands big enough to shuffle them. Cori has stated that she wanted them to be large enough to use for meditation. They are that and printed on quality stock with a very nice slick finish. They also come in a very sturdy box all at a bargain price given the quality. However, I do hope that at some point this deck is offered in two sizes, one being a pocket edition, like the Thoth Tarot.
