5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best tarot/book set available! 5 April 2011
Format:Paperback
Monte Farber and Amy Zerner are the world's most renowned creators of self-help and guidance systems. One of their most overlooked titles, "The Enchanted Tarot", is a highly regarded classic within the tarot community. Released in 1992, this book and tarot deck set set the standard for the art of tarot reading, taking readers on a journey through our dual world of The Dreaming and The Awakening, finally transcending to a higher consciousness.

The book is beautifully written by Farber, whose expertise as a proven psychic is employed in helping readers to get the most out of the tarot. He covers the various methods in utilizing this unique system for gaining insight and wisdom on how to overcome adversity and solving everyday problems in today's chaotic society through the meanings of the 78 tarot cards, which each convey a message to our conscious and unconscious selves.

The manner in which the interpretations of the cards are presented is quite different from what tarot readers are most used to. Instead of the typical upright/reversed meanings practiced by most tarot schools, Farber breaks down the interpretations into three(3) separate levels: The Dream, The Awakening, and The Enchantment. The Dream gives the symbolic meaning via a story-like narrative, The Awakening a straightforward elaboration, and The Enchantment an actual exercise to infuse positive energy into the card representing your life. Of note is the omission of the "reversed" card meaning to allay any fears and negative thoughts often associated with it, which I personally thought was a sincere and nice touch by Farber; a tarot deck which can do you no harm.

Equally impressive is Amy Zerner's colorful and richly detailed artwork, expertly lending credence to Farber's prophetic vision.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Bright and Detailed Deck 29 Dec 2009
By Hannah
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
With bigger than usual white backed cards this original deck has amazing, intricate and colourful detail. The card were made up from beautifully placed fabrics, ribbons, beads, embroidery etc. Sometimes the cards need a close up look to fully appreciate the detail but its a good thing. The overall style is slightly victorian romantic and the strong and insightful symbolism is based on the Rider-Waite. A very readable and enjoyable deck and good for the beginner too.

Comes in a large box with integral place to put cards (rather than their own box). A lovely accompanying book, although I haven't gotton round to reading it yet. Too busy enjoying the cards.

2.0 out of 5 stars SUCH BEAUTIFUL IMAGES - SO BADLY PRODUCED 14 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback
Honestly it drives me nuts! What is the point of artists putting their heart and soul into these lovely masterpieces if they then allow them to be badly and cheaply made?! With the kind of technology available today to everyone at very cheap prices there is no longer ANY excuse for this type of shoddy, cheap work from professional manufacturers.

The Book -

The content of this book is excellent for beginners and introduces them to a variation the fools journey to learn the cards. There is a large print of each card next to the description that show the rather intricate details of this collage approach.
Unfortunately though the print in is so thin in places and the paper uses so cheap and nasty (that annoying shiny stuff) that it renders this book almost unreadable. To make matters worse the pages haven't been bound they have been glued with the result being that the book starts to physically fall apart after the first few paged have been turned.

The Box -

Clearly this has been adapted from another project with the Enchanted Tarot label awkwardly glued on the surface. The card used is cheap and thin so each time it is opens bits start to fray and fall off. The slot for the cards is too small so they have been literally jammed into it causing even further damage to the box. All in all - not very good.

The Cards -

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, where do i begin?!! Quite simply this is among the worsted I have ever seen. Well, firstly the card stock is VERY poor quality and has already got a huge bend in all the cards before they are even unwrapped. They look like they have been literally hacked out by a very blunt scalpel resulting in extensive fraying and damage along the edges.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's not 5 star! 8 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this on the basis of the two 5 star reviews and I was really quite disappointed. the pictures were not in my opinion vivid or detailed enough. The art work, while competent, was not inspiring. To get right inside a tarot deck I think you need to truly believe in it and admire it. Sadly that is not accomplished here. A fairly pedestrian set which did not "enchant" me. Compared to something like Deviant Moon which is bold, daring and edgily haunting, this is just another tarot deck. Unless you're collecting them, I would not put this on the top of your "wanted" list.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's not hardcover. 15 Mar 2010
By Cynthia McAlister - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I fell in love with these cards when my friend let me borrow her deck. I immediately knew I had to have my own. Since the original set was released many years back, the deck has been reworked. Apparently the images are sharper and the colors brighter, and the borders on the cards have been eliminated so that the entire card is filled with tapestry. I Ass-u-me-d that since the set advertised here was released in 2009 that they would be the newer version of the card design. They are not, but that is really not a problem, I love these cards. The book here advertised is hardcover, which I wanted, but what I received is not hardcover. Oh well, the interpretation is lovely, and that IS what I really wanted. Buyer Beware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Interpretation 30 May 2010
By Christine R. Schroeder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've owned this set for years and while not exactly a "reader", I'm most certainly a collector of Tarot decks. This deck is one of the prettiest and loveliest interpretations I've seen. The vintage images and the tapestries on each card are just gorgeous. I love to just pull a card out of the deck at random and read the interpretation in the accompanying book. Lovely way to start my day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best book/tarot deck set available! 15 Jan 2011
By A Travel Book Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Monte Farber and Amy Zerner are the world's most renowned creators of self-help and guidance systems. One of their most overlooked titles, "The Enchanted Tarot", is a highly regarded classic within the tarot community. Released in 1992, this book and tarot deck set set the standard for the art of tarot reading, taking readers on a journey through our dual world of The Dreaming and The Awakening, finally transcending to a higher consciousness.

The manner in which the interpretations of the cards are presented is quite different from what tarot readers are most used to. Instead of the typical upright/reversed meanings practiced by most tarot schools, Farber breaks down the interpretations into three(3) separate levels: The Dream, The Awakening, and The Enchantment.

Of note is the omission of the "reversed" card meaning to allay any fears and negative thoughts often associated with it, which I personally thought was a sincere and nice touch by Farber; a tarot deck which can do you no harm.

Equally impressive is Amy Zerner's colorful and richly detailed artwork, expertly lending credence to Farber's prophetic vision. The cards, although a bit oversized, are sumptuous with an Edwardian flavor that evokes a more simpler, romantic period than today's frenzied pace. The cards are also cleverly color-coded based on suit and healing power: Hearts Purple, Pentacles Green, Wands Red, and Swords Blue. What really sets The Enchanted Tarot's artwork apart from most other tarot sets is that Zerner's illustrations are not merely paintings rendered on a computer. Each image is actually a 2' X 1' fabric collage tapestry painstakingly laid out, and then sewn together in her unique, exquisite style. These gorgeous, award-winning works of art are recognized as paintings by the National Endowment for the Arts. The colorful illustrations are also well represented in the glossy high-quality book, which you don't often find in most tarot/book sets these days.

The conclusion of the book includes a short section on preparing for and doing actual readings, using the three most popular layouts in tarot: The One-Card, Three-Card, and the beloved Celtic Cross spreads. All-in-all, Farber's "The Enchanted Tarot" is a benign and gentle tarot. Zerner's stunning illustrations bring Farber's words to life and vice versa, as they complement each other. "The Enchanted Tarot" may not fall in line with those who might prefer a more traditional approach to the tarot, but with one of the highest accuracy rates in the world amongst living tarot readers, Farber's system should not be taken lightly. Instead, it should be looked upon as a consummate tool for those who are looking for self-help through alternative means. "The Enchanted Tarot" is just too damn good that I'm doing to do something which I've never done before using a 5-star rating system. I'm giving this one 6 stars with the highest recommendations. WELL DONE, MONTE AND AMY!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Enchanted Tarot 28 May 2012
By Sheri Newton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Enchanted Tarot by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber is a beautiful deck of tarot cards. It also includes a 192 page guidebook that is 5 x 9 inches, which details the meaning of the card and also enchantments for each card so you can take your reading to the next level.

The Enchanted Tarot is one of the most visually appealing tarot decks I have used. The images on the cards are all fluid and beautiful. Amy Zerner is a fantastic artist! It looks like she did them in a mixed media fashion, and it honestly inspires me to want to make similar artwork.

The guidebook is also a nice size and really details the meaning behind all of the cards. Most tarot or oracle decks have a small guidebook with just general meanings to the cards. I love that this one is so detailed and also gives an "enchantment" for each card that can be used in addition to just the reading.

The only thing I wish was a little bit different is the length of the cards. They are just a little bit too long for me shuffle easily. I don't have big hands, so it made it a little awkward for me to shuffle. However, after I shuffled the deck many times (and did quite a few readings), it wasn't as big of an issue.

I really enjoy using this tarot deck and highly recommend it to everyone who also reads tarot cards. If you want to start reading them, I also think that this deck would be a wonderful one to start with because the guidebook makes it is so easy to learn how to read them.

* Big thank you to the publisher of The Enchanted Tarot, Connections, for providing me with a copy of this set for review. All opinions expressed are my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Learn, Easy to Master 3 April 2011
By L. Belfiore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've been using runes for the past 15 years, and a few years ago I decided to get a Tarot deck to use with them. I searched for quite a while before deciding on the Enchanted Tarot, and I am so glad that this is the deck I decided to purchase. Not only is the artwork beautiful, but you can actually decipher the meaning of the card from the artwork. Also, there are no reversed meanings, so this is a deck that you can read through the book once or twice before using the deck, instead of constantly referring to the book or memorizing every meaning of every card. Highly recommended for beginners, advanced readers, or collectors!
