Format: Cards
very nice quality deck but i found it difficult to connect with.the cards are on good quality stock,playing card size.
the images are lovely watercolours but some readers will find hard to interpret if used to traditional waite images.more of a deck for people who incorporate astrology into their readings as a lot of the images are based on constellations.

From the box....

"Celestial Tarot fuses the myths, symbols and astronomy of the planets, signs, constellations, and fixed stars with astrological divination to reveal the mysteries of Tarot in an engaging and unique way".

If you are a Rider-Waite follower and are interested in developing your understanding through the Tarots connection to astrology, then this deck is for you. Of course if you have a deep love for the stars and constellation then this deck is a great choice!

Each card has its traditional name accompanied by its astrological title on the top. For example, 'The Chariot' is associated with the sign of Cancer the crab, and shows a crab, the zodiac symbol of the crab, the chariot and his horse, the water symbol (because Cancer is a water sign) and various other symbols include the associated Hebrew letter. 'The Chariot' also features the Greek Goddess Hera, the Hero's (the Charioteer's) greatest adversary in Greek mythology and the LWB explains why. Some minor arcana cards are related to star constellations which fit in nicely with the traditional Rider-Waite meaning and symbolism.

The artwork is softly drawn with a night sky colour theme and feels friendly and soothing to look at. This deck has much lot to offer is you are looking to expand your knowledge of the Tarot further and will lead you on an exciting journey into astrology, the Tree of Life and our wondrous night sky!

If you are a complete beginner and want to learn traditional Tarot, it might be better to become familiar with the Rider-Waite deck first. Other than that this deck has a lot to offer the Tarot student and professional reader.

The cards are a good size and well laminated, and are accompanied by a LWB which explains the symbolism and meaning of each card.

This is a lovely tarot deck, although I must admit I prefer the Major to the Minor Arcana. I like the fact that it combines Astrology with Tarot,it's excelente if you want to combine both subjects as it helps you familiarise with the relationships between the cards and the planets.

I love all the decks by this artist, and Celestial Tarot is one of my favourites. This is not a deck for a tarot beginner -- unless you are an astrologist who is just starting out with tarot. But if you are familiar with tarot and want to learn astrological associations, this is an excellent deck for you. I highly recommend it.

HASH(0x9fdd8f00) out of 5 stars A somewhat "stellar" deck 16 Feb. 2005
By Adrienne L. Gormley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Cards
I just recently purchased this deck, and when I looked at the cards, I realized I already owned a deck by this same artist. This is Kay Steventon, who did the work for the Spiral Tarot. As someone who has studied art (as in doing, not reviewing), I fell in love with the techniques she used for both decks. In the Spiral tarot, though, the art work isn't quite as lush on the minors (except aces and court cards); on this deck, the lushness exists on all cards.

The imagery used in this deck is radically different. Every card, and I mean EVERY card, here, is tied to a planet or constellation (and one star). Steventon is both an artist and astrologer, which explains this. In the majors, the cards associated with the signs of the zodiac (starting with the Emperor-Aries) often depict the actual zodiacal sign, and if there's a reference to the traditional image, it's a small sillhouette in the background. Nevertheless, Steventon and Clark work extremely hard to tie the symbolism of the constellation or star used to the symbolism of the card.

Some of the constellations depicted in the minor arcana amused me, as "Crater" (which is a Greek drinking chalice) is used for the Ace of Wands, but the author and artist team do tie it in, with a history of the constellation. The suit symbols are very simple monochrome figures at the base of the card, while the major illustration is a lavish, with bead-gemstone-gold thread embellishments as are the major arcana.

I'm rating this deck at 5 stars for the artwork, but subtracting 2 for two reasons: the "seasons" associated with the four suits are not always the traditional seasons (cups are autumn, pentacles are spring, swords are winter), and I believe there were some twister-like gyrations used in order to fit the constellations used on some cards to fit the "traditional" meanings.

HASH(0xa05762f4) out of 5 stars Star-Crossing of Constellations & Golden Dawn 31 July 2008
By Cerulean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the unique attribution of "Ptolemy's 48 constellations" as represented in the Celestial Tarot ( noted in page 272-274 of the extensive book of the kit edition. You can also order the book separately at the U.S. Games site). The art is beautiful to me. My first printing in 2004 was printed in China and had more turquoise and royal blue tones. But I still liked the brightness of the art by Ms. Steventon. The deck alone comes with a little white book of 48 pages.
The 2006 printing of the book adds a wonderful wealth of detail. The compact book of almost 300 pages, based on three courses designed by Brian Clark. I had ordered the information in workbook formats prior to 2006 and found to my delight, the 2006 book and deck set has much of the same information.
I also like that the reprinting of the deck in Italy since 2006 has given the deck a richer look. Still deep colors, but more plum-blue tones to me.
It does take time to see the small details--such as the wispy and delicate 'mini-picture' motifs in the majors that echo a standard Rider-Waite Smith depiction of the major arcana. And the minors may be too creative a leap for some, especially if they are not interested in Golden Dawn derived astrology.
I've a few versions of this deck since it first came out and find it is rich and is well-worth the time...hope you enjoy this rich and 'stellar' deck!

I do love the art. It is dreamy and lovely, but is not a deck that speaks to me. For those who know the myths of the planets and stars this would be a wonderful deck, as that is the theme.

HASH(0x9fddb1f8) out of 5 stars Not your usual tarot deck 24 Aug. 2009
By Jacqueline C. Delario - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
This is quite a deck. It combines mythology, astrology, kabbalah, and sacred geometry. I fell in love with the art work immediately: the images are replete with symbols and the sense of motion.
I would not recommend it to someone looking for a traditional tarot deck to do typical/predictive readings. BUT, if you are looking to address the subconscious, the root cause, the foundation -- this deck is a good tool. The cards are a good size to handle easily but the pictures are so full that I almost wish they were bigger.

HASH(0xa00ecc24) out of 5 stars Personality Readings 12 May 2009
By Kyana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I think I like Kay's Spiral Tarot more for divination reading.
Celestial tarot is very interesting to study and your knowledge will expand more than you know.

Perhaps because, each card represents a sign, I find this pack of cards very useful for reading about personality.
