Book Description

1 Jan 1990
The scenes on each card are reminiscent of medieval stained glass associated with majestic cathedrals. Each card touches the subconscious in a profound way, and the spiritual and inspirational imagery brings the viewer to a higher level of consciousness. The wardrobes of the figures are resplendent in color and historic detail, and the scene on each card is luminous. The cards include symbols that Eileen Connolly has held in her consciousness for many years, yet the scenes convey simple, clear messages. Connolly Tarot presents gentler interpretations of Rider-Waite Tarot, with Death replaced by Transition, and the Devil replaced by Materialism. The 79-card deck includes a Gateway to Meditation Card.

4.0 out of 5 stars My favorite deck 23 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This deck leapt out at me from the shelf at my local bookstore and screamed "take me home!" The deck is a good size (it is also available in a miniature version) and has an ivory marble look to the backs. The intense colors add layers of depth and meaning to the pictures--I have never seen a deck with this kind of coloring before, and that is a lot of what drew this deck to me. The colors are especially vibrant when I use the deck for readings or meditations. While Connolly does stick to the "traditional" tarot for the most part (e.g. suits cups, pentacles, wands, swords), she changes two cards in the major arcana: Death is "Transition" and The Devil is "Materialism." Personally, I wish she had left these cards alone. Also I dislike her rendition of the ten of swords, which is a woman with ten sword hilts around her (the blade portion of the sword would be out of the picture). Finally, you should be warned that Connolly works a lot of angel symbolism into her deck and her books. This may bother some people, though it has never hindered me. Overall, I like the feel and look of this deck.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cards with a gentle approach 31 Mar 2014
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
Really nice deck in the Ryder Waite style. The cards are colourful and less harsh than some cards for eg the death card in this deck is called transition and devil materialism . The cards are infused with angels and cherubs .A really good first deck alternative to the Ryder Waite .

5.0 out of 5 stars Connolly: An inspiring deck 12 Oct 2013
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
If you are happy to take a little time to get familiar with it the Connolly tarot becomes a fascinating and useful deck to work with. It is not how it first seems, and it goes deeper than it may perhaps initially look.

I originally got it for a simple reason: I wanted a deck where the images appeared safe and gave no nasty surprises for the more vulnerable or anxious client. I thought the Connolly would be ideal to use for some people who have never seen a typical deck and who may become anxious and require a bit of reassurance on seeing cards like, for example, the Ten of Swords. In the Connolly tarot Death becomes "Transformation", The Devil becomes "Materialism", The Hanged Man has a look of meditative calm as he views things with his new perspective, and the images on the Swords cards will not give anyone nightmares. So far, so good.

The problem however was that at first the deck seemed so bland that it was really difficult to get anything from it, readings were just empty. So I put it to one side as a failed experiment. All I can say is that I'm really glad I picked it up again and started looking deeply at the images. With just a little effort you can find a story in each card. (There is a little guide booklet that comes with the deck but it has just one-liners for each card and it's not much practical use.)

So, for just one example, Connolly's Nine of Swords has a woman walking across a snow-covered winter's landscape, the sky is dark and brooding, she carries eight swords and one is at her feet. The cold wind whips at her hair and clothing, and although she is dressed for the cruel weather her journey looks as though it will be difficult. She looks strong though, and you know she will make it. This challenge will only make her stronger.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most beautiful decks 29 Mar 1999
By A Customer
I love this deck! It was the first one I ever purchased...the beauty of it's colors and illustrations make it irresistable (it's a little like stained glass). She does change the "Death" card to "Transition" and the "Devil" card to "Materialism"--changes that I personally find appropriate, and I would recommend the deck to someone who gives tarot readings frequently (so many find the original card references a little scary). The Connollys have a definite Christan slant to this tarot approach, which you can see from Eileen's writing and some card illustrations that include cherubs; but the deck is worth buying for any lover of beautiful tarot, whatever your religious orientation.
