Motherpeace - the Peace of the Mother - is reflected in these cards. Free of competitive thought, power search and manipulative behaviour, this set of cards celebrates human experience of life in a community of living beings in all its aspects.
The Minor Arcana , relating to the daily life inside the four corners of the earth, tell stories of tribal people, of their tasks, relationships, celebrations and rites of passage. The images touch deep seated memories inside the psyche, reminding us of human needs and ways which we have in common with all people on the planet. This celebration of our common humanness can heal the alienation between the races and restore the peace we all long for.
The 21 cards of the Major Arcana , representing the Archetypal patterns of soul tasks, again relate to all of humankind, reminding us of the secrets behind our existence. The journey of the soul is told in symbolical pictures that touch the deeper levels of our being, awakening a knowledge of mystical dimension.
As you might have guessed by now - I love these cards...

I use this deck for very special solemn occasions, when more physical and spiritual healing inspiration is needed. There is something about this deck which inspires great reverence for Life.
I prefer the smaller deck because the cards fit very comfortably in the palm of my hand. There are two illustrators of these cards--half the deck illustrated by each, and I am able to read the drawings of one illustrator more easily than the other.

I'd not seen these for over 20 years and stumbled across them online a few days ago. They arrived yesterday, I opened them up in a cafe (whilst sitting on my own with a coffee!) and suddenly people started queueing up for readings, declaring how shocked they were with the accuracy. I was seriously impressed with how I could pick them up and just start reading - such fabulous imagery, so clear and inspirational. I highly recommend them!

I saw these cards in costa rica and wanted them but they were too big for my backpack... So I got home and ordered these mini ones and I just love them.... I can read for myself with these without worrying that I'm seeing what I want to see and they give me straight answers (most of the time)

They are fab and just he right size!!

BEWARE: MINI DECK included 2 Nov. 2004
By Barbara B. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I love the Motherpeace deck and I used it for many years. I recently bought this set from Amazon, hoping to replace my old deck. I was surprised to find that it is NOT a full sized deck -- it is a "mini-deck." This is not mentioned in the description of the product.

I had to remove the shrink wrap to find this out, and then Amazon hit me with a $15 charge when I sent them back for a refund. OUCH .....

UPDATE: Amazon did eventually refund my money, since their description was not complete.

Excellent tool for Spiritual Growth 1 Jan. 2002
By Amy S. Finlay - Published on Amazon.com
Since I bought this deck a few years ago, it has helped me through immense personal growth. Where most other decks are scary and intimidating, this deck is reassuring, validating, honest and deeply wise.
As far as the feminist messages in the cards and book, I have found them very much based on love, and the perspective presented has been decidedly useful to me. It is not feminist in the negative sense (ie "man-hating"), but rather is feminist in the positive sense (loving, woman empowering). Probably there are people who will be turned off by this strong feminist slant, but for most women, I think it is an asset that they will appreciate.
I just asked my husband what his opinion was on the feminist slant of the deck. He says that the images on the cards (rather simple images with plenty of naked people, predominantly women) would be a turnoff to many men. On the other hand, he thinks highly of the deck, having seen first hand how much it has helped me through transitions in my life, and he respects the messages and wisdom that comes through the cards. In fact, it's interesting to note that the cards have, many times, helped our relationship over rough patches, and guided me into deeper love and trust of my husband.
I think that any woman who is looking for a deck that will help her to tune into her own intuition, a deck she can trust with her deepest questions, this is THE deck. Personally, I have not found any other deck that I would trust in the way I trust this deck. It goes to the heart of any question, helping to gain honest, loving perspective, and empowering you to make good decisions.

To help us not be our own worst enemies! 7 Aug. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Greetings! I find that this deck is one of my favorites. The only complaint I have is the difficulty in using a round deck--but I have found a way to work around that. *grin* Now, to address all those of you who wrote negative comments about the deck, in regard to it being female centric--isn't it about time? For years we have dealt with the male centric view of magick and Goddess worship. This carried over into tarot decks and other forms of divination.
In ancient times, women were the ones of power and men respected a woman in all her glory. Menstrual cycles were expected and praised, young women did not fear rape and incest, and when the crone years came, women were not tossed outside to live in an "old age" hut.
I would like to direct you to history. Goddess based faiths were peace-loving, and historians have found no weapons at sites were women, and the Goddess, were revered. However, in the male-dominated sites, several types of weapons and devices of torture have been found.
So, in conclusion, I highly suggest these cards for any person, male or female. It is an investment with great payoffs!

A Fresh Point of View 7 Jun. 2002
By K. Bourn - Published on Amazon.com
The creators of the Motherpeace tarot deck have rethought the traditional (and patriarchal) images of earlier tarot desks, replacing the images with multicultural, goddess-centered images. Since "Motherpeace" was my first tarot set and I have spent little time using more traditional decks, I may not be able to accurately describe what images have changed. Instead of the traditional royalty hierarchy--King, Queen, etc., Motherpeace portrays them as Priest and Priestess. Although the desk retains the more-common medieval theme for the Cups suit, images from other cultures appear on the other suits: African (Wands), Navajo (Discs), and Greco-Roman (Swords).
After using these cards in readings for more than 10 years, the images have become part of how I view certain situations. For instance, the Eight of Discs, featuring a very pregnant woman sitting in a patch of watermelons, is how I now visualize the experience of waiting, sometimes impatiently, for something to come to fruition. Depicting "Strength" as the Irish Goddess Brigid sitting among animals has caused me to rethink what true strength means--groundedness--not brute force. The images are so intricately drawn that a regular reader always will discover new details and new perspectives.
When I started reading tarot cards, I wasn't looking for something to predict the future. I approached the cards as an opportunity to use guided imagery to reflect on my life and my future. Over the years, however, I have experienced some extremely odd coincidences, and now associate certain cards with certain events.
The companion book provides an excellent discussion about the inspiration for the images, and for the most part, a good sense of the meaning behind the images. Eventually, once one has used the cards for a while, the images can drive the reading, without constant referral to the guidebook. One drawback of the companion book is that it doesn't provide a variety of readings. For that, I would suggest "Tarot for Yourself."

Just Like You 29 Mar. 2002
By A. Webb - Published on Amazon.com
I am not a Tarot expert. I collect decks because I like the art and the idea of a spiritual tool for examining the self. I am not trained to recognize esoteric symbols and so many tarot decks have them, that I usually give up in frustration of ever learning to recognize them again, let alone know what they mean. The only deck that has spoken to me personally and allowed my imagination to come up with multiple interpretations is the Motherpeace deck. I was put off at first by the seeming simplistic artwork, but after using them and playing with them for a couple years, they started to to grow on me. Yeah, I know, a couple of years is long in this fast-paced world, but instant attraction isn't always the best sign of a good relationship and the decks I found myself most attracted to ended up being empty vessels. With Motherpeace, for the first time, I felt that I could trust my own interpretive intuition and that alone is more freeing than anything else garnered from tarot work. I love it so much that I'm ordering the mini-Motherpeace to take to work with me. The images are nurturing and androgynous and I really don't know what the fuss is about when discussing male and female representation. I found it whole and comforting. Definately worth a look.
