Very good choice of tarot deck for the beginner. Using this set was my first encounter with the tarot. I feel that the book is very clearly written and easy to follow although you are limited to using the original book as the cards contain suits that are not often described in other tarot books. The predictions that the cards indicate are well written also and they do leave certain elements to your own interpretation. The spreads it describes are simple and easy to follow and get to know. There are enchantments (like mini rituals) for each card in the deck, which can be performed for the cards that you draw in a reading or just pick one at random to perform to bring a little magick in to your life each day.
