I am new to tarot cards and I was looking for something easy to read and not very mean looking as I have parents who are very against tarot and then someone recommended this deck to me, so I took the chance, bought and let my parents look through the pack and thankfully they let me keep the deck. This deck is very easy to read and have a very basic and easy book if you happen to forget the card meaning. They have a good range of illustrations and very pleasing to the eye and not over whelming or violent looking.

I am , by profession a 'reader', but not a big fan of the 'fluffy' angel cards that are out there - these are the most 'tarot' angel cards I have found to date. (Am also a collector so always on the look out). The imagery on these cards are great, but do not necessarily translate 'directly' as would first appear. One of the novices in my Psychic Dev groups picked up a copy of these cards and conected with then instatntly - These cards give a balanced approach to a reading, whether inverted or not - (a big bonus is that the reverse of these cards are neutral, and so , face down, it is impossible to tell if they are inverted - so many Angel cards do not allow the deck to be used fully because of a 'right way up' reverse side).
This cards are a very valid, quiet beautiful and positive addition to any collection, and I would highly recommend them to anyone who finds the conventional tarot imagery a little daunting .

They're easy to interpret because the pictures are vivid, and the angel theme is beautiful. Comes with a simple interpretation book, good enough as a start for learning tarot.

Guardians and Warriors, Cherubs and Dark Entities 12 Mar. 2008
By Janet Boyer - Published on Amazon.com
"In a world that is increasingly alienated by the struggle for power, by a love of money, and by a yearning for fame, the Angel Tarots [sic] can be guides, almost like a spark of light during dark times, and to find your way amidst confusion." - From the L(ittle) W(hite) B(ook) to the Tarot of the Angels

Heralded as special agents of the Divine, angels appear in sacred texts, literature, art, mythology and movies. These beings deliver messages to humanity, as well as bring solace, guidance and protection. Some individuals believe that the angelic realm consists of "good" and "bad" angels (often called demons), while others feel that these powerful creatures manifest only light and love.

With lively imagery, artist Arturo Picca displays a wide variety of angelic beings in Tarot of the Angels. From warrior angels to playful cherubs, dark entities to humble servants of humanity, a myriad of vocations and persuasions find expression in this ethereal deck.

Measuring approximately 4 ¾ x 2 ½ inches with a majestic reversible backing, the Tarot of the Angels cards feature the Minor suits of Chalices, Pentacles, Wands and Swords with the Court designations of Knave, Knight, Queen and King. The only difference between the deck-only version and the Deluxe Edition is the baby blue angel bag.

As I began to examine each of the cards from this deck, my first impression was that the artwork looked rather crude and unappealing. However, by the time I came to the Hanged man, I realized that this deck had something significant to offer.

I continued to study the imagery from each card and found myself inexplicably choked up, perhaps graced in that moment by a Divine presence. This stirring was certainly not maudlin (I've never been particularly attracted to angel art), but seemed to be a spontaneous and unconscious reaction to the Tarot of the Angels, especially the Chalices.

For example, The Devil card shows a seated horned, winged creature with his hands on two heads--which are actually part of the armrest. Even if one didn't believe in literal possession or even demons, the illustration aptly depicts the destructive compulsion of unexamined thoughts and cultural spells. While "the devil" may not have made someone do "evil" deeds, how much of the world's cruelty finds its roots in prejudice and ignorance--two conditions under the aegis of The Devil.

Speaking of roots, the Knight of Pentacles is one of my favorite cards in the Tarot of the Angels deck. A knight bedecked in heavy armor sits upon a plodding horse. A dark angel hovers over tangled, barren roots encompassing the back half of the horse and reaching past the head of the seated rider. Meanwhile, a white angel near the front of the horse appears to be pushing back the stagnant, twisted vines as if attempting to free the Knight of Pentacles from a permanently snarled state. What an inventive way to portray inertia, shortsightedness (the helmet barely has slits for the eyes!) and clinging to the past. (In hand writing analysis and other traditions, the left hand side indicates the past, although I don't know if this detail was intentional or not.)

While many of the actual card meanings are quite insightful and inspirational, especially if your path invokes and reveres angelic beings, the LWB presents a decidedly dualistic, patriarchal spirituality. Therefore, if your religious path leans towards an omniscient male deity, good versus evil, punishment for "bad" behavior, harmful entities, reward for playing nice and upholding "truth" and "justice", then you may find theological value in Giordano Berti's text.

If you're looking for an angel-themed deck that isn't airy or exclusively New Age positivism, you may want to give Tarot of the Angels a try. The imagery invites speculation and contemplative musings, as well as story possibilities, intuitive insight and spiritual comfort (and perhaps warnings?) from a host of angelic messengers.

Very spiritual paintings and client responses 8 July 2013
By Gigi - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I ordered this deck for use at a psychic fair. The cards arrived in mint condition promptly. I got rave reviews on a set no one had seen before. Those interested in Angels were uplifted and understood their messages. Non-religious clients noted the pictures were colorful & easy to relate to the traditional Tarot cards. They were standard size & the card stock was easy to shuffle. I felt the gloss made them slip a little quick but I was able to compensate quickly. Several asked where I'd found such a lovely series. I proudly referred them to Amazon.com. They've stayed beautiful for years with little wear and tear.

Surprisingly dark 25 July 2011
By CHS - Published on Amazon.com
I had so much hope for these cards but they are surprisingly dark. I find it hard to be intuitive with them. These are very powerful cards though as messages do come through, but I would only use them for maybe readings on questioning a person you are suspicious of or who may have ulterior motives. I would also use it to explore my Shadow self.
Just not what I expected 3 July 2011

The artwork is ok other than so much blue. The cards are not the best quality. I don't like how they shuffle... they feel flimsy. I couldn't connect with them or read with them. I gave them away.

Still Searching for the Ideal Angel Deck . . . 13 July 2012
By Diana Faillace Von Behren - Published on Amazon.com
The "Tarot of the Angels," a deck by Lo Scarabeo, is a nicely sized tarot of the seventy-two classically Rider-Waite themed cards. The design scheme is primarily light blue and white (think heaven and clouds) with the illustrations framed within the name of the card in six different languages. The back of each card features a Swiss cross design with a quartet of feathered angel wing portrayed against what looks to be a door--perhaps a portal into the Self. If only the illustrations were a little crisper, less pastels-on-textured-paper looking, the deck would overall make a much better impact.

I enjoy comparing the imagery on tarot cards; I don't have any special insights or powers. Most people, when reviewing such decks, mention attributes that refer to "the feel they get from the cards" as if the cards actually grow vocal cords and speak with a voice. I won't say that certain cards when used in a reading don't immediately jump out at me and indicate a fresh or current issue. My thinking tells me that tarot is meant to reflect a facet of self and used as an exploration of archetypical meanings as they apply to us as individuals and as members of a social group. However, most of my pondering with regard to the cards and their meanings is gleaned from reading that I have done from various books on the subject--my favorites being The Symbols and Magick of Tarot and a French and Spanish book called The Labyrinth: Tarot. As the tarot is also associated with the cabalist Shemhamphorasch--the 72 names of God and that these are associated with 72 angelic names and attributes, it seems somewhat fitting that this history and tradition should in some way be represented in an Angel tarot.

The deck by Kaya and Muller The 72 Angel Cards, Dreams-Signs-Meditation, The Traditional Study of Angels - Angelology (English and French Edition) uses the Shemhamphorasch as its base. These cards, however are not a tarot and have no illustrations. Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot Cards feature attractively rendered illustrations but have no real association with traditional tarot as the names of the suits and some of the Major Arcana are changed to better depict Virtue's positive message.

I would like to see a deck illustrated with angels that are familiar--like Michael, Gabriel, Uriel and Raphael--maybe with Gustav Dore type images--perhaps in color--that would combine tarot with angelic associations.

If you are looking for a deck that is traditionally a tarot and depicts angels in the Rider-Waite style, this deck may be for you. Keep in mind, however that the illustrations, in my opinion, are subdued and quite frankly do not jump out at me in any way. I have not used the deck for any reading or self-exploration simply because I do not like it. Believe it or not my The Baroque Bohemian Cats' Tarot gives me a better first feel than this deck.

Bottom line? The Tarot of the Angels by Lo Scarbeo is a traditional tarot in the Rider-Waite format. The images are muted as if they were drawn in pastel chalks that do not render well on a card because the colors do not show up that well. I have no special talent with regard to tarot, but in my opinion this deck seems shadowy and nebulous. I did not get any feel for any of the illustrations nor was I impressed with the format. While the size is comfortable, an edging could be added to the deck to make it easier to handle. My quest for the ultimate Angel deck continues. Recommended only for those who have throughly researched this deck out on the various on line sites that give examples of the card depictions.
