Format: Paperback
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.

I had this tarot deck and book bought for me as a birthday present! It's a beautifully illustrated deck and I love to just look at the cards and enjoy the artwork it gives me real joy! The definitions of the cards are the best I have seen I find them very understandable and they resonate with me completely. I would recommend this deck and book to anyone who is new to tarot, its a great experience. Enjoy!

most positive 18 Jan. 2000
By "delvallea" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I believe that with tarot one must develop a personal connection with the cards, but I think anyone interested in a beautiful and positive deck would love this one! The artwork is tapestry with pastels and sequins and is absolutely beautiful. Every picture is full of symbolism that reflects aspects of the message of each card. I am quickly learning to read the cards instead of relying on the book because it is so easy to understand the message by looking at the visual clues, I have studied 3 decks so far but seen about 50, and this one is the easiest to 'translate'
The book also breaks each card down into three aspects, the 'dream' meaning of the card, which gives a literal description of the card itself and the message reflected. The second aspect is the awakening, which gives plain-spoken advice on how to put the message into action in your life, and the third aspect is the enchantment, with gives little rituals/visualizations one can use to further manifest the card's message.
As for the artwork, it is stunning and positive! Even Death looks jaunty, like he's about to break out in a tap dance routine at any moment. The ten of swords is the card I always turn to, to give me an idea of the energy behind a deck. The ten of swords (Ruin) in this deck is represented by a woman laying down the body of a young girl. It is somber as it should be, but depicts an air of resignation and acceptance. Most 10 of swords give me the heebie jeebies, this one I thin is perfect.
The Book is well worded, the cards have beautiful artwork and positive energy, it is my *very* favorite. I usually have something 'negative' to say in a review in the interest of honesty, but I can't think of anything negative about this one!

Review from a Collector & User of The Tarot 2 Aug. 2000
By Graham D. Lincoln - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have a special place in my heart for this deck, though I have used it seldom since '93 or so. This is the First Tarot Deck I ever owned--purchased on October 13, 1990. I believe this is a great Starter Deck and I always had great success with the readings. One particular reading, that I wrote in my journal, was absolutely astonishing and accurate to the tiniest detail.... I love the great hard-back, beautiful book that comes with the deck (complete with attached ribbon bookmark). At the time, I was not interested in the more popular decks and was drawn to this one.... I believe Women and Artistic-minded people will enjoy and treasure this deck. It is a great introduction to the Tarot, and inspired me to write a Poem.

A+ for art, D- for divination 29 Mar. 2002
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have to go with the majority here in praising the artwork of these cards; with their many shapes and textures, they're undeniably gorgeous. However, for me, that may be part of the problem...there's simply too much going on in each card, with the result (for me, at least) that the artwork distracts from the meaning. I own several Tarot decks, and this is the only one that I consistently have trouble reading.
Another problem (and again, this is for me...as several reviewers have noted, each person has his/her own relationship with different decks) is that with their Victorian-type styling, they're a bit too "modern" for my taste. Anyone like me who connects strongly with mythical/folkloric archetypes may miss the more traditional symbolism that I'm used to in Tarot decks. I think that is the main reason these cards don't "speak" to me like other decks do.
Many of the reviews have mentioned the positive nature of the illustrations, and I have mixed feelings about this. This positivity does make the cards more non-threatening, but sometimes we need strong warnings about possible dire situations that may lie ahead. The Ten of Swords -should- be a frightening card, but the idea is that the cards surrounding it should give advice as to how to avoid or at least lessen the impact of the situation.
I do like the format of the book, although I have to give the same caveat as another reviewer did: Readers should read from the cards, not from the book. However, I think the exercises given in the book do help novice readers to begin to associate the meanings of the cards in their minds.
Overall, most of my problems with this deck come down to personal taste. I can certainly see why the deck has drawn so many good reviews, and again, different decks speak to different people. For me, though, this deck is in my collection merely for the artwork, since for divinatory purposes I just don't connect with it.

So great to work with that I wore out the book! (help!) 7 Dec. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have many tarot decks and this one, purchased about 9 years ago, has always been the one I brought out when I wanted a really accurate reading (although I know each person has to get one that's best for him/her). I used it a lot in college and people from all over campus would come to get a reading because it was so accurate (I haven't had the same luck with other decks--again, I know it's a personal thing). The stories that go with the cards make them easy to understand and follow/interpret, and there is so much going on in the pictures you never tire of looking at them. My only complaint is that my book has worn out (thanks to a little help from the dog) and I want to replace it, but I don't need another deck of cards (those are kept in silk and are still in excellent condition). Is there anywhere I can just purchase the book, without the cards? I hope so! I'll check back on this page from time to time in hopes someone can help. :)

A Beginner's Enchanted Dream 30 Nov. 2000
By "angeleyesinnj" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This was my first set of Tarot cards. Within no time I was not only doing my own cards, but those of friends and family. These cards have always been right on the money. Each time I have done the cards for a person who has never had their cards read, they have become true believers in the Tarot. The designs are exquisite and the book is simple to use. The explanations for each card are easy to understand and have a very powerful message. The biggest plus about these cards is that the messages are designed to give one hope that no matter how bad things are, there are ways to battle back and with perserverence and hard work, no matter how horrible the situation may seem, a positive outcome is always possible. A must for beginners and a wonderous addition for experienced Tarot readers.
