I was very excited to get this deck due to the preview art being so lovely. Indeed the art is very nice. I enjoy the deck very much when it comes to aesthetics and energy flow, I find it is very receptive to energies. However for a person practicing Tarot readings it is not simple to use. If you are a beginner or are very comfortable with the Rider-Waite deck, you may as well get the Rider-Waite deck.
The symbolism does not correlate well between this deck and the Rider-Waite deck. Example: the Seven of Swords: The Rider-Waite deck pictures a young boy, presumably a thief, sneaking away with five of seven swords. In the Elemental Deck it pictures seven fairies, a yin-yang, and three giant coins. The Yin-yang is high in the background, the fairies are floating around the foreground, and the giant coins are behind them. There is symbolism there yes, but it is not what I expected or am used to.
That being said change is sometimes very productive so maybe this deck is exactly what you need. Also, each card means something different to each person so maybe this deck would represent another persons views better. However, for me it really was not what I was expecting or in need of.
I recommend this deck for someone who is very aware of Tarot, is experienced in readings, and does not feel the Rider-Waite deck embodies the meanings of the cards as they believe them to be.
