Format: Cards
The Whimsical Tarot approaches the reading of cards from a completely different aspect -- by associating with childhood images and fairy tales. This deck allows us to connect with our "inner child". Although the name may suggest this is a less than serious deck, this deck is a very valuable tool in discovering our inner selves and helping us reconnect with those simple things that give us joy.
The images on the cards do not obviously correspond with the imagery from our experiences with the Rider-Waite style of decks. Gone are the confusing "Quabalah mystery" symbolism that we pondered and studied in order to interpret the meanings of those older decks. This is the use of simple and obvious imagery that gives us instant insight into the meaning of the cards.
The images are drawn from well known fairy tales and are familiar to just about anyone. The art work of Mary Hanson-Robert is clean. She gives us very colorful images that attract attention but are not obtrusive. The art work is not distracting, but is lovely to sit and reflect upon.
As we explore the deck, we find some familiar tarot references. We do have a Major Arcana comprised of 22 cards, all clearly marked with the number of the card in its order, and the name of the card. There is no mistaking the card's association. The Fool - 0 - is the scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz. If you look at the tarot as a personal journey of the one who begins as a fool, this association is very obvious. We have the symbolism of the yellow brick road, we have Toto and so much more. The Magician is Puss in Boots, the High Priestess is the Fairy Godmother.

I have lots of tarot decks and always keep an eye out for a deck that's new to me. I read the review of Whimsical Tarot on Aeclectic Tarot's website and decided to buy it to add to my collection, and to maybe use for readings if I resonated with the deck. What a delightful tarot set this is ! I'm not a huge fan of 'dark' decks (even though I do have one or two) and find that I get better readings from 'lighter'cards. The cards in this deck are based on fairy stories - similar to The Fairytale Tarot although that deck features tales from Aesop's Fables and more classical fairy stories whereas Whimsical Tarot uses the common Jack and Jill type nursery rhymes as well as traditional Cinderella type story. The 5 of Pentacles ( always a card I use to see if I agree with the designer of whatever deck I'm looking at ) shows The Ugly Duckling, and The Magician is Puss in Boots - wonderful ! Here are two more - Aladdin's Genie is 9 of Cups, and 6 of Cups shows Peter Pan and Wendy. I love it.

I expected to love this but I didn't find all the 'minor arcana' cards to my liking. The Death card - The Sleeping Beauty in this deck - regrettably (for those who don't realise it means positive change) remains with the word Death on the card - what a shame it wasn't changed to Transformation or Release or something like that as in the Psychic Tarot of the Heart or Doreen Virtue's Angel Tarot. Nevertheless an interesting 'alternative' deck with some great cards. Santa as The Emperor - lovely! PS Wands are called Rods on the cards - I prefer Wands.

Not quite what l expected. l do not see myself reading with this tarot. As the title says it is whimsical, but may be better suited to a younger person who is just getting into reading tarot.
