1.0 out of 5 stars nVery Disturbing 3 May 2008
Format:Misc. Supplies
I purchased this deck several years ago and found it so disturbing that I abandoned tarot study until quite recently. I agree with the above reviewer about the fragmented energies of this pack. I found the images somehow deeply disturbing although quite cartoonish and they gave me a very creepy feeling. Impossible to meditate with these cards - at least I found them impossible to meditate with. There are plenty of very good tarot decks about and I'm currently using a Rider Waite deck with great success and much satisfaction. I know everybody is different and there maybe those to whom this deck really speaks, however I felt I should share my experiences here. I have been interested in the Occult and Qabala for some time now and am not easily "spooked" but I admit these cards unnerved me.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is most disturbing 11 Feb 2008

Tarot of the Witches?
Tarot of the macabre! I am a professional tarot reader and have been reading now for about 10 years, this is the only deck that I do not feel happy with using! The images do not sit easy on the eye at all, the deck has the most confusing energies, fragmenting thoughts.
It is as if the deck has been created for us to fear the hobgoblins, its like watching a childs horror movies. For the tarot reader not to be inspired but shocked. Very Bizarre.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hall 007 7 May 2012
Format:Misc. Supplies
The author and artist of this deck is Fergus Hall. The Tarot of the Witches is very distinctive due to the style of the images and the picture on the box is very typical of that style. Bold colours are used throughout the Major Arcana. The Minor Arcana cards are not fully illustrated, showing 'pips' rather than pictures. Interestingly, the swords show a winged foot; batons (wands), a clenched hand above a twig; cups, a heart with cupid's arrow through it; and coins (pentacles), an open eye with flames above it and a path through hills below it.

This deck was featured in the James Bond film, 'Live and Let Die'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Deck 23 Nov 2002
By Joe Arthur - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Misc. Supplies
I've read some reviews on this deck that say it is childish and simple. I think this deck is absolutely wonderful. You have to use your own imagination and find your own meanings to the symbolism...which in my opinion is what tarot cards are all about. For those of you who want a deck that lays out plainly what the cards mean, then this is not for you. If you have a good imagination and enjoy the type of artistry used in this deck you wont be disapointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just the "007" tarot 29 Mar 2004
By Bruce Gray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Misc. Supplies
These tarot cards should really be known as the Fergus Hall deck.
Many people are familiar with this deck due to its use in the James Bond movie, "Live and Let Die". But it is far more than that.
Abandoning all efforts to reproduce the Rider Waite Tarot, Hall has created a deck with some of the most surreal, yet highly mystical art ever seen on Tarot cards.
Those who are familiar with Tarot cards know that many different interpretations of cards are possible by seeing the imagery on the cards. Hall's imagery isn't for everyone, but I believe the art really draws you into readings in a whole new way.
I have also found this deck invaluable for dream interpretation.
The minor arcana return to the old "pip" system.
One of my higher recommendations if you are already doing readings for others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freaky and whimsical! 21 Jun 2002
By Someone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Misc. Supplies
This delightful deck has unfortunately been misnamed and mismarketed throughout its existence. It has nothing to do with James Bond or witches but has everything to do with Fergus Hall, the idiosyncratic artist who painted the deck. It should be called simply the Fergus Hall Tarot. Hall got his start doing carnival paintings and that freaky bizarro style shows in this deck. Unlike most 20th century decks, Hall's deck is free of occult or pagan mumbo jumbo and yet is rich in subtle symbolism, such as the mysterious black birds and orange cats that appear on various cards, and the mandala type designs in the center of the pip cards. The books held by the hanged man and hermit contain original poems (can't read them? See Stuart Kaplan's companion book). The art is very expertly done and yet is so whimsical and unassuming it's easy to take for granted. The World card is one of the best I've ever seen, downright haunting. This is a very profound deck but at the same time doesn't take itself too seriously. The pip cards are a welcome return to tradition, using the original suits of cups, swords, batons, and coins rather than the recently introduced "wands" and "pentacles" which many mistakenly consider authentic. Also, as in traditional decks, the pips are unillustrated save for Hall's central mandalas. In my opinion, unillustrated pips leave more room for the readers own imagination and insight.
A perfect blend of tradition and creativity. You might find this deck puzzling at first, but stick with it. There's an entire little world in every card!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tarot of the Witches is the Real Thing 1 Nov 2012
By KaliMa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Misc. Supplies
The TAROT OF THE WITCHES deck (by Fergus Hall) was the first Tarot deck I ever owned, back when I was in high school some 30 years ago. I was immediately grabbed by the illustrations, and I just knew it was for me. I cut my teeth on this deck, and even the plain "pip" cards didn't prevent me from learning all the possible meanings of all the cards, Major or Minor Arcana. The illustrations on the Major Arcana cards are like peering back into a dream you had that you could never quite remember. This deck hits the subconscious like a ton of bricks, and breaks right through to the other side. There is something frightening, disturbing, yet utterly familiar and strangely nostalgic about the world which Fergus Hall illustrates. (NOTE: I've NEVER EVEN SEEN the James Bond movie which supposedly has this deck featured in it, so that can't be the source of the deja vu, at least not for me!) It's a weird otherworld which triggers your abilities to "get" a reading, and understand it immediately and completely.
Although I switched eventually to the THOTH deck, because I wanted a deck that illustrated and explained Minor as well as Major Arcana cards (and Lady Frieda Harris' illustrations are phenomenal), my readings on that deck never quite reached the level of truth and insight that I got from this deceptively simple deck. When I'm doing a particularly important reading, I still reach for the TAROT OF THE WITCHES. I've bought many "Thoths" since then, and many, many other decks besides. This deck is the only one I have that has never been replaced. It's the same old deck from 30 years ago, and it's still my favorite. How it has lasted all this time is only one of it's many mysteries! If I decide to buy a new deck, it's good to know I can get it from Amazon. Whether you are in the market for a new deck, or haven't yet bought a Tarot deck but are considering it, please do consider this one. It's special.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm no 007 fan but I like this deck anyway 3 Jan 2010
By Chris & Gin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Misc. Supplies
First of all, dont' let the name fool you; this deck has nothing to do with real witchcraft. There's nothing pagan-oriented about it. I bought this deck 10 years ago. Unfortunately a few cards in the deck were damaged recently. I was surprised to find that it had been used in a James Bond movie. I love the artwork on these cards; as others have mentioned, it has a stark surrealism. Fergus Hall did an outstanding job with his choices of scenes for the cards and color choices. My only complaints are that the minor arcana cards are not individualized; the 7 of Swords just shows seven swords against a simple background, for instance. If the minor arcana had individual illustrations like the major arcana I would have liked better and given it 5 stars. With that in mind, I don't think I will get a new Tarot of the Witches deck, though I strongly considered it.
