Tarot expert Rachel Pollack explores the symbology and personal nuances of Haindl's esoteric deck. Special attention is paid to the I Ching aspects, upright and reversed, which is helpful and to the Court cards and the myths attached to them. This deepens the reader's appreciation to what might otherwise be a perplexing deck to a novice, but which is in fact solidly within the tarot tradition, albeit with an environmentalist/ new age feel, transmuting the ancient signs for greater relevance in a nuclear age.

The Haindl deck is one of the most multicultural I've ever encountered. Instead of the Anglo prototypes prevalent since the Rider-Waite, Hermann Haindl uses India, Egypt, England, and America as his four suits. He also uses Norse runes, Hebrew letters, and I Ching characters on each card. It's lovely and visually enticing, and it truly speaks to the experienced reader. It's a good intermediate deck, perhaps a bit too full for the neophyte reader.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good and helpful book. 3 May 2009
Format:Paperback
I do not think the author went into sufficient detail with some of the cards, because there were things in the pictures that were not dealt with; on the other hand, I must take into consideration how much bigger and more expensive the book would have been if she HAD covered every detail! On the whole, this is a very good and useful handbook for both the beginner and more advanced Tarot users. The Haindl Tarot is an exceptional pack by any standards, and Rachel Pollock almost does it justice.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice quality Deck. 13 Nov 2012
By FAMOUS NAME VINE VOICE
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
A very unusual, but attractive Tarot Deck this - though very hard to read on one's own... I understand that there is an accompanying book (sold separately) to assist with these Cards that may help the Reader somewhat, but this appears to be out of print - or at least judging by the ridiculous prices being charged for even used copies - in extremely short supply...

I do like these Cards and will keep them for my ever growing Collection, but it is unlikely I feel I shall ever use them... Way too much going on in the images for my liking, and you have to really look too deeply (even more intently than one feels one should have to) in order to make out some of the very intricate images and symbolism...

Nice quality though, with a lovely `waxy' finish, and they do come with a small booklet that does give quite a bit of information on the meanings - but just difficult to decipher without some form of assistance...

I really like the idea of `Stones' as a suit, and I have a whole bunch of favourite Cards which are; `The Tower', `King of Wands', `The Fool', `Prince of Cups', `Prince of Wands', `Princess of Cups', `The Hierophant', `Alchemy', and `Princess of Wands', and I do like the little differences showing the various titles and words at the top and bottom of some Cards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Artistic Dreamlike Tarot Deck 1 Oct 1997
By Joseph Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
I've used the Haindl Tarot for 6 years and recently performed over 33 readings at the San Francisco Whole Life Expo using the Haindl Tarot. This deck gives the querent a great deal of answers pertaining to influences around the question. The cards are beautiful, watercolor like, dreamy, and yet powerful in their images. The inclusion of American Indian, Hindu, European and Egptian influences give the reader the ability to connect with ancient energies. I love reading with this deck and it is one the highly prized decks that I use professionally.

4.0 out of 5 stars The art work is beautiful, but........ 9 Jan 2003
By Jennifer Mills - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
What first drew me to these cards was the amazing art work. The major arcana are so full of symbolism and detail and they do give off a good vibe. They are based more on the Thoth deck then the more traditional decks, so they call the Judgement card Aeon and the Temperance card Alchemy, which is fine, but might be confusing for others just trying to learn. Also the Strength and Justice card are actually numerically switched in the deck. However, I do love that the court cards are daughter, son, mother and father instead of page, knight, queen and king, and that each suit's court cards are actual gods and goddesses from various religions; the cup cards are norse based (Brigid of Ireland and Parsival, etc.), the wands are Hindi based (Kali and Brahma, etc) the stones (penticles) are native american based (Spider Woman and Old Man, etc.) and the swords are egyptian based (Ra and Isis, etc.) And that brings a new aspect to the court cards that I haven't seen in other decks. I have used this deck for several years, however, I feel I have grown out of it and am looking for a new deck. But I do recommend this deck to people who are looking for something with beautiful art and that is not as traditional as other decks. I do not recommend it if you like the minor arcana to be as full of symbolism and art as the major arcana or if you are looking for a more traditional deck to start with.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best decks I've ever owned... 11 July 2001
By Matthew Cotterill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
I have long been searching for a deck that spoke to me... and this one absolutlly does! This deck is illustrated with soft water colours, but don't be fooled (no pun intended). They have a supernatural aura to them, which gives them a high inpact without trying to dazzal you with the "pretty picture" technique. My spreads almost seem to come alive, with a supernatural verver, when I use them. I recomend this deck to anyone who is searching for that "spirtual deck" that gives them a new awareness, to a very old tool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful artwork, everything a Tarot deck should be 15 Aug 2005
By Kayde - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
I am a beginner in the world of tarot, and I first started my research by reading a small book that had pictures of all different tarot decks. The artwork of the Haindl deck immediatly caught my attention, and after seeing the few examples in the book, I knew it was the deck for me. I actually bought my deck in a bookstore, and I debated between Haindl and the Universal-Waite deck only because I am a beginner and thought it might be easier with the Universal deck. But the Haindl deck felt best to me, and it is now my first deck. After opening the deck, I couldn't believe the artwork. There is so much color, depth, and meaning behind the paintings that were used for the cards, and they are very open to many interpretations. Another thing I really like about the deck is that it represents many different cultures and religions. Hindu, Egyption, Native American, and Greek mythology are all represented, and it makes it the perfect deck for people of any belief. Some find the Eye that graces the back of the cards to be strange and ill fitting, but I thing it represents what the tarot is; the will to want to see more clearly in our own lives, and the lives of others. The cards are a slightly larger size, but still feel comfortable in my hands, even though I have the smallest hands of everyone I know. The only semi-bad thing about this deck is that for the beginner, some of the things are different, like stones instead of pentacles or coins, and a mother, father, son and daughter for the suit cards instead of king, queen, knight and paige. There are also few books available about the Haindl deck, seeing as Rachel Pollack seems to be the only one that has written about it. But all in all this is a beautiful deck, and I am glad that it is my first.
