I got this deck from a resale boutique actually, so I wasn't the first person to have their energy on it.
This is not a deck to give to someone to learn about Tarot with because the guidebook has some really whacked out meanings for the cards, in other words, doesn't follow traditional tarot concepts most of the time.
I like the simplicity of the cards and the colors and the Art Deco style done by Caroline Smith.
This deck, even though not adhering to the classical school of Tarot in its meanings done by Mystic Meg, IS AMAZING. I rarely use this deck because the meanings are so whacked that it doesn't exercise my Tarot skills. HOWEVER, when I use this deck the reads are SO ACCURATE its SO SCARY. It reads like a psychic would like certain cards will tell you almost exactly what the profession of someone is.... its hard to explain but its just easier to say its like having a psychic out of a box.
An example is the Sun card. Mystic Meg (MM) will give you a description about the card and all of the possibilities to it in two categories either love or just your daily life. Then she will say in love you will meet this person at a place that starts with "S". Weird stuff that gets thrown out into the card meanings with this deck... however, its usually true.
I used this deck on a romance question. It told me the type of profession my romantic interest is in, what is causing strife, what is good in the relationship, where we met. We met at a place that started with S which was at a outside dance club (which it said a circular dance floor in an outside/exposed environment). This deck is weird like that but is the best deck I've ever used to get details other than using an oracle deck.
I highly recommend this deck as a deck for pure guidance into a situation. It even predicted a work issue for me to the T.
I would give this deck 10 stars if I could cause its so spookily accurate its crazy.
