4.0 out of 5 stars Original Approach, Lovely Deck 28 July 2005
While being a deck of cards, this is not a tarot deck, and there was a learning curve that took me a couple of days to work out. However, this is a very imaginative and interesting look at the use of dream interpretation, and I was pleased with my end results.
First of all, the deck. This is like most Lo Scarabeo decks, being 2.5 by 4.75 inches, which is hand size, so they deal and shuffle easily. The cardboard is standard stock, and it comes in a box for storage. There is the usual little tiny booklet in five languages with just enough information to use the deck.
However, this deck is not really all that hard to work with. The introduction of the booklet suggests that these images, which display common oneiric themes, can be used to interpret dreams. The last page in English suggests some spreads, which are illustrated on the inside front cover. There is a very brief meaning of the cards in the upright and reversed positions. You draw the cards, and look at suggested meanings. While this may be good for the beginner, and I have to admit I did it for a few hands, I found the images to be more telling than the booklet, and resorted to bypassing the booklet meanings and looking directly at the cards.
The cards are uncanny, to say the least. I would say they are very surrealistic, in a modern sort of way. The artwork is quite good, a mixture of cartoon and realism, almost Dali meets Peter Max in some respects. The images bounce between colorful, happy cards and shades of grey and ominous, depending on the mood the card is trying to create for the topic chosen.
There are 78 cards, plus two cover cards. There is no correspondence to any tarot deck, so you need to start from scratch here. But it's quite simple, really.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy Surreal Tarot Deck 16 May 2006
By Mary E. Gutierrez - Published on

The Dream Cards consist of surreal imagery that really do look like they emerged from someone's strange dreamscape. Figures morph in and out of other people and objects and you can never be quite sure of the setting in which the images occur. Some of the card images can be unsettling to some people, but overall, they are fascinating.

Prior to using this deck I examined the imagery for several days before I even attempted to do a reading just because it is so highly unusual and thought-provoking.

The deck is very useful from an intuitive sense. The accompanying booklet does give thorough explanations as to the cards' meanings (many of which do not correspond with a traditional tarot deck), however, I find the deck more useful if one does not refer to the booklet at all. The images alone help your intuitive side to come up with its own interpretations. As you examine the images it makes your mind look at them as if you're remembering one of your own dreams. We've all done that - had a really weird dream, we wake up and think to ourselves, "what the ...?" Then we sit there and attempt to figure out what our dream may mean to us. That is how these cards make you think. Sometimes you can't make heads or tails out of the imagery and your intuitive brain kicks into full gear and you find your OWN meaning to the card, then you move on to the next card in your spread.

I really enjoy this deck and have been recommending it to my tarot students because it is a valuable tool that will help users connect more fully with their intuition. You don't need the little guidebook that accompanies this deck. Trust your own intuition when you view the images and you'll see just how incredibly accurate your own readings can be for you.

I recommend this deck more for those who have used a variety of tarot and oracle decks, but I also believe that beginners can get a lot out of it, as well.

I am a tarot reader and when I saw this deck I had to have it. It's beautiful! The images are dreamy and leave a plenty of room for my imagination to kick in.
