Book Description

3 Oct 2003
The purpose of reading tarot is to understand our own inner secrets and to achieve personal harmony along the way. Titania's new approach to the tarot highlights their astrological significance, so that anyone vaguely familiar with astrology can bring additional knowledge and intuition to the card reading itself. This is a set of 78 tarot cards based on an Egyptian set of astrological cards. The accompanying book explains how to read the tarot with full explanations of every card as well as simple and more advanced sample layouts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very very good deck, I like it ! <3 17 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback
I completely disagree with the two negative reviews, I just bought this wonderful deck of Tarot and I found them great and very inspiring
I am enchanted with the little astrological constellation that appear in most of the cards and I think it's a great idea to join astrology with Tarot cards
I am an Italian witch and I am so sad that in my country this deck is unpublished
I am very happy with this purchase, another lovely work by Titania !

2.0 out of 5 stars Confusing 2 May 2010
Format:Paperback
I do agree with the previous review. The author associates different astrological signs with several of the Major arcana than is usual. For instance it is usual to align the Hierophant with Taurus (not Jupiter as here). Also in this pack, Temperance is associated with Taurus instead of Sagittarius and the Chariot with Sagittarius instead of Cancer. While some of these changes are not unheard of and most are wholly understandable - they do break away from recognised meanings and if this is your first pack, it will serve to confuse you. If you are experienced with Tarot is will also be an obstacle to retrain your thinking while using these cards and to re-align it once more when you go to standard packs, difficult if not impossible. Further more the number 5 cards - 5 of swords, pentacles, wands and cups have all been turned completely on their heads. In Tarot they usually symbolise loss and sorrow. However, in this pack they are given association with Mercury and have become positive cards. Again, one can understand the thinking behind this, as Titania has used standard numerological meanings of the number 5 to support her changes. It also serves to achieve her aim of an overall positive deck. This is fine for those just only wishing to use this deck, otherwise again there is difficulty harmonising this set with recognised Tarot.

Finally, it has to be said that these are not in my view a very attractive set of cards. The book is clear and helpful within the parameters mentioned. It is a shame that more care was not taken overall. It is obvious that Titania does indeed know her stuff; in order for her to have made the choices she has this would have been necessary. It results however, in confusion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap flimsy little cards, not a good choice for beginners 16 Oct 2004
By picky tarot girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This deck won't stand up to a year of regular readings. It's the same size as a playing card deck (much smaller than the average Tarot deck), and the card stock is so thin and flimsy that 78 cards actually form a thinner deck than the average 52-card poker deck. For those who are allergic to metallic inks, beware: every card has a silver border front and back. (The backs are reversible, if rather boring.)
The images are interesting, though cold (they're computer-generated, and quite minimalistic). Yes, it's great to leave stuff to your imagination, but this deck doesn't really trigger my imagination in the first place.
For those of you who don't like unillustrated pip cards (the non-court minor arcana), bear in mind that these pip cards don't have scenes on them. It's just the items (sword/cup/wand/coin) arranged in geometric shapes. For this reason, I wouldn't suggest it as a beginner deck. I also wouldn't recommend the book for beginners - Titania Hardie sets out some huge spreads that only an experienced reader is going to have much success with. Beginners are better off with small spreads (1-5 cards); Hardie doesn't even mention spreads of less than "a simple 9-card layout".
Deck collectors may want this one for interest's sake.
Serious readers will be turned off by the size and flimsiness of the cards.
Beginners can find more appropriate choices.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great concept; very poor execution. 9 Nov 2004
By Dionysius S. Badarian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This could have been a nice, compact, minimalistic tarot deck, perfect for travel, etc. To my mind, there is nothing wrong with the idea. Not everyone needs or wants tarot decks sagging with bloated elves and overly cute fairies, or crowded with pseudo-medieval tarts and knaves. I don't think this deck would ever have been one for beginners, but it might have had its place in the tarot scheme of things. But the cardstock is flimsy beyond belief, the folder-holder is crap, and the book is questionable. On top of that, the card numbering in the Major Arcana is in error (not "different"; WRONG), and no one caught it before the set went to print. Apparently no one cared enough to do a decent job of either editing or production. This is a useless tarot deck. I'm sorry I bought it.
