Unicorns meet Universal Waite Tarot, 18 Feb 2004
Before you get The Unicorn Tarot ask yourself if you like Unicorns; because I believe that Unicorns lovers, like myself, will get more from this deck than others.
It is basically the Universal Waite Tarot reworked to include the presence of Unicorns. The unicorns have a varying role in the card interpretation; such as support, guidance, etc. The Unicorns are always inspirational in some way. The art is nice because of the balance of figures and the uses of color to distinguish the feel of each element.
The book that comes with the deck, In Search of Unicorns, is a little too brief for my taste, but the interpretations are still good so I can't knock it at all. You can use the Universal Waite deck interpretations or join a group to further cover the meanings of these simple, yet eloquent cards.
For those it concerns there is a little nudity in the deck, but nothing explicit.
This particular set also includes a Celtic Cross reading mat for beginners that helps your create the spread and read from it; very nice touch.
Over all this is great for Unicorn lovers, Tarot collectors, and Tarot beginners too.
