Pagan News Review by Earthmystry
This deck draws from several different forms of healing, spiritual awakening
and even psychology yet pulls them together in a cohesive, intelligent way.
I am pretty sure I recognize elements of Wicca, Reiki, Alchemy and the Kaballah
in the artwork and interpretations. This deck is not really pagan, "new age"
seems to fit it better, although it does stick to the four suits of the
traditional Tarot deck and the Goddess is thoroughly presented. The authors
have taken Tarot a step into the new millennium with this deck by expanding
on the basic archetypes in the Major Arcana, mixing and matching aspects
from many different modalities and making it work. This is a sophisticated
deck of Tarot; but it is not for the stodgy or hard core ceremonial
magician. It is much better suited to a eclectic solitary wiccan.
The deck seems to be made by and for women, whether that was intentional or
not. It has that whole "it's all about me and how I feel" quality that new
age women are drawn to. The artwork compliments the interpretations and
ideas expressed in the book beautifully. You could give this set as a gift
to almost any women you know (witch or cowan) and not need to worry about scaring them. The one thing this deck has in common with almost
every other Tarot deck is the size of the cards. Why do people insist on
making Tarot cards wider than the average human hand?
Despite the size, I fell in love with this deck, and I will use it!
