1.0 out of 5 stars Won't hold your interest for long 5 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Cards
I bought this deck before really knowing anything about tarot, and now I wish I had chosen a bit more carefully. The pictures on the cards are very simple and are of the "pip" variety, so it is difficult to develop your own associations. Also I find I have become a little too dependant on the keywords and meanings actually printed on the cards themselves. Now I have found out a bit more about tarot, I would prefer to rely more on my own feelings about the cards, rather than just what is written on them. I've only had the deck for about 2 months, but already want to move on to a deck which "speaks" to me a bit more. I was hoping to learn the basics from this deck, but I found I still needed help from a book..... my advice, buy a book first, then choose your deck. Many beginners books include advice on choosing a deck anyway. Starting with a more traditional deck may be more complicated at first, especially as you will have to refer to a book on a regular basis, but probably worth it in the long run. Try a book like "Step-by-Step Tarot" by Terry Donaldson for example, which helps you get to know the cards for yourself.

I use this deck with my on-line Mystery School students. It works beautifully because the meanings are printed right on the cards. No fumbling thru the little booklet, frantically trying to associate meaning to picture. This helps your mind make that association all the quicker! And for folks who do telephone card readings for their clients, there is no other deck. If you get a brain cramp, again, the meaning suggestions, like a cue-card, are right there in front of you. The artwork isn't as pretty as some of the new decks, but that's because this one is based on the oldest existing deck, Marseilles, currently in a Museum in France. The minor arcana is primitive, too, but again it's a nice kind of primitive-ness harking back to the days when all students of the Tarot had to draw, paint and create their own Tarot decks. What a job that must have been. This deck's art looks like that---created by an everyday person, you or me. (Unless you're an artist, that is!) Yet, all the symbols and colors are accurate and visible. I recommend this deck to anyone who is self-conscious or worried about their skill. You can use this deck to do readings, even play poker or other card games with as you memorize the meanings and get a feel for the Tarot. Then you switch to a more artistic, more beautiful deck with no meanings anywhere in sight---except nicely stored in your mind's library!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enough interpretation 24 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Cards
My fear. when I purchased this pack, was that there would only be one or two 'keywords' but there is more than enough choice to explain your specific thoughts. I also like the way they have printed the reverse card meanings so you are able to read that section as the card is reversed.
The only problem I have is that it is all too easy to read and rely on the words and forget to take note of the actual 'card', especially when in a good flowing reading. I would still recommend it though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Starter Tarot Deck 26 Jan 2000
By Annette Willis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
This is an excellent beginners' tool. If you have absolutely no idea how to read Tarot cards, you can do a reading in less than 10 minutes. The instructions are so simple and the accuracy is shocking. This is a good set of cards.

5.0 out of 5 stars There are not "accidents" 9 Dec 2000
By Dr. Cheryl Ann Dusty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
This is a great deck for beginner and pro alike. There are no accidents in life, as you will discover for yourself when you begin using tarot cards. One word of caution: any good tarot reader will tell you that it is almost impossible to read for yourself. That's why we, the readers at [keen], consult each other when we have "feelings" that we need verified. My personal recommendation is that you have a reading no more often than every 3-4 weeks. Otherwise you find that you dilute the meaning and energy of events.
This deck is the perfect way to begin your journey into the study of the tarot, which means "hidden knowledge". The oldest known tarot deck is 15th Century Italian. There must be a reason they've been around so long: they work!
You will find, once you become familiar with the meanings of the cards, that you will be drawn to continue your journey and delve into other decks. Take your time and find one that "speaks" to you. The artwork on tarot decks is meant to spur your intuition.
Best of luck with this great deck and happy reading!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great For Phone Readers 4 Feb 2000
By "ginadapooh" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
I think this is a great way for phone readers to be able to keep there mind on the reading and not wrapped up in the cards. It gives you a good starting point to learn what the cards mean to you. It is also nice for people who have read for a long time becuase everyone has moments of blankness. The pictures are simplistic which helps you keep on track and not distracted by the art work. So, far I have not found a better deck for reading on the phones.

3.0 out of 5 stars I used these for work 13 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
Decent for phone-a-psychics. Really bad art work. I could have drawn these, but if you're on the phone nobody else can see them. Descriptions are kind of repetitive. Similar descriptions for diffrent cards. I did like that it had the reverse meanings printed and it comes with a neat little phamplet about the history of tarot. Dont use these as a script, you still will have to make up a lot. I would have had less art work and more explinations.
