5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch Deck in Symbolism and Mystical Aura 8 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Cards
The Aquarian Tarot by David Palladini does exactly what the Tarot should do!!! That is,,,Act as A Catalyst for the floodgates of one's own psychic abilities to open, flow and be directed...Along the path of mans' physical and spiritual life on the earth plane. The Palladini Aquarian deck offers all of the important symbolism for each card in an obvious ANd Mystical manner - allowing the reader to be lead psychically down the correct path. Unlike many other "Pretty" & "Weird" decks which abound - the Aquarian deck does not keep you spell bound to the cards themselves trying to decipher them but rather their meanings being instantly recognized by the reader, does it's job by sending our psyche away from the cards and directly into the cosmos of transmitted visuals and thought communications from the universe. Transmittals relevant to the questions being posed by the client. I'm on my 3rd deck of Pallidini's and have never found another to replace them!

4.0 out of 5 stars An Old Favourite 6 May 2012
Format:Cards
The subtitle of the Aquarian Tarot is 'Authentic Interpretation of the Medieval Tarot'. It has been created in 'art deco' style and appears to be much more based on the Rider-Waite than on earlier decks. The sixteen-page fold-out instruction booklet gives the briefest of introductions, meanings for all the cards and instructions for the Celtic Cross Spread - 'The Ancient Celtic Method of Divination'. Although there are now many hundreds of spreads, the Celtic Cross has remained high profile and is the standard by which other spreads are measured.

The Major Arcana is something of a mixed bag in terms of consistency. Some of the cards, e.g. 'the Magician' and 'the Hanged Man' are immediately recognisable as being based on the Rider-Waite deck, whilst others, e.g. 'Strength' and 'Temperance' are quite different. Many of the images are 'close-up' views, cutting out a lot of the background and losing some of the original symbols. The card numbers appear in Roman numerals at the top of each one, whilst the names are at the bottom, in a variety of fonts and sizes, creating to a certain extent a lack of continuity. However, in spite of all that, the cards are attractive and eye-catching.

The Minor Arcana is much more consistent and sticks closely to the Rider-Waite formation. Although the images are 'close-up' views, they are less so than the Major Arcana and retain most of the original symbolism. They are immediate and compelling, feeling much more lively than the Major Arcana.

The Aquarian Tarot has remained one of the most popular Tarot decks over the years, and it was the second deck I owned. Although I haven't used this deck for years, I still have a soft spot in my heart for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great deck of cards 28 Sep 2013
By J. Reid
Format:Cards
Beautiful illustrations which have a very Art Deco look to them. They are easy to use in that they keep much of the symbolism and colours as the more traditional older decks. No scary images either! Excellent x

This was the first deck of cards I ever picked up, and it's the only deck that I have been able to use comfortably. It is very easy to read and "understand." I'd buy it again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but cryptic at times 8 Mar 2012
By R. Perkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
David Palladini's Aquarian Tarot is a beautiful deck in the Rider-Waite tradition. I was attracted to it by the wonderful art-deco style and the watercolors, both of which appeal to my sensibilities. This deck is very emotive - there's a strong sense of feeling that emanates from these cards, and it is often that feeling, rather than the imagery depicted, that informs my reading with them.

Unfortunately, this can be the downside of using this deck. Though a Rider-Waite deck, lots of the symbolism that makes that tradition so rich is lost here. The major arcana, for instance, are inspired by - but do not adhere to the imagery of - the Rider-Waite. The fool carries a bindle and a rose, but there is no dog, no cliff, no sunny day. The sun and the moon cards are simply celestial bodies with faces, which I find very lacking; the moon, especially, has so much to offer with its dog and wolf, its pool with the crab, its two towers, and so it's disappointing to see all of that missing here. Strength depicts a soldier standing with a dog, but there is no tension, no taming, no dynamism to the image. The chariot is also quite dull, displaying no horses or other action to indicate the dualistic pull of this card. The star is simply a bird and a star. I could go on into the minor arcana, but I hope my point is clear - many of these cards omit much of the rich symbolism present in the Rider-Waite, leaving the reader to seek more esoteric guidance from the cards. There is often no sense of action in the images. They tend more towards still moments, portraits almost.

Granted, there is guidance to be offered. Some of the images are rich with feeling and meaning - the lovers, for example, are charged with such sweet magnetism and amour, their forms so intertwined, one cannot help but be moved by the depiction. Temperance shows a richly-dressed, winged angel. It's a simple image, but the expression on her face is so subtle and passionately rendered that I feel you could get the depth of meaning for this card based on her face alone. The devil, as well, I find particularly evocative, with the man and the woman dangling from a cleft stone boulder that looks like a broken heart. There are some beautiful moments captured here, and plenty to work with when doing a reading. But the imagery is not always explicit, and the cards often emote a feeling quite different from their Rider-Waite counterparts. Make of that what you will, but know that this deck has a feeling quite its own, and often a very subtle one at that. These cards take perhaps more study and effort to connect with than your average RW clone, and thus, I wouldn't recommend them for beginners (I've seen this deck several times recommended for beginners and wonder at that - I feel it's one of the less easy-to-interpret decks I've come across).

This deck does speak to me, though, and it has a somber power I haven't found present in other decks I've examined. It is a very particular deck. Be sure to examine its images well before committing to buying it, and know that if you are still learning the Rider-Waite tradition of tarot, this is not the best deck to learn with.

Also, as a side note, I purchased Craig Junjulas' 'Psychic Tarot' to go along with this deck and have not found it very helpful. I think it hasn't aged well and spends too much time focusing on psychic development, which (although there is much overlap) is a very different pursuit from tarot. Stick with another and perhaps more modern book, even if the example deck it uses is different.

4.0 out of 5 stars An older deck but classic 7 May 2010
By Yukio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
THis deck is old by many standards but the artwork still remains rather unique and revealing in many ways. It has an 'ancient' feel but also a 'modern' feel that many enjoyed getting readings with and is a sure winner for a primer deck!
