I purchased this deck several years ago and found it so disturbing that I abandoned tarot study until quite recently. I agree with the above reviewer about the fragmented energies of this pack. I found the images somehow deeply disturbing although quite cartoonish and they gave me a very creepy feeling. Impossible to meditate with these cards - at least I found them impossible to meditate with. There are plenty of very good tarot decks about and I'm currently using a Rider Waite deck with great success and much satisfaction. I know everybody is different and there maybe those to whom this deck really speaks, however I felt I should share my experiences here. I have been interested in the Occult and Qabala for some time now and am not easily "spooked" but I admit these cards unnerved me.

Tarot of the Witches?
Tarot of the macabre! I am a professional tarot reader and have been reading now for about 10 years, this is the only deck that I do not feel happy with using! The images do not sit easy on the eye at all, the deck has the most confusing energies, fragmenting thoughts.
It is as if the deck has been created for us to fear the hobgoblins, its like watching a childs horror movies. For the tarot reader not to be inspired but shocked. Very Bizarre.

The author and artist of this deck is Fergus Hall. The Tarot of the Witches is very distinctive due to the style of the images and the picture on the box is very typical of that style. Bold colours are used throughout the Major Arcana. The Minor Arcana cards are not fully illustrated, showing 'pips' rather than pictures. Interestingly, the swords show a winged foot; batons (wands), a clenched hand above a twig; cups, a heart with cupid's arrow through it; and coins (pentacles), an open eye with flames above it and a path through hills below it.

This deck was featured in the James Bond film, 'Live and Let Die'.

Bought for the artwork, which is beautiful, detailed and thought provoking. It's shame the back of the cards don't have the 007 logo on them. The cards pips don't have individual artwork- it's a Marseilles style deck, so the trumps are even more special when they appear alongside them. Some people criticize the art style as being too dark(?!), but even Death is smiling and you won't find a star or sun illustration with bigger smiles. The mini-booklet is less than card size, but 43 pages long with the basics of how to read the Celtic Cross spread. Nice thick card stock with a very slidey shuffle-able surface.

This deck carries lots of energy and the art work by Fergus Hall is simply stunning. Although not a popular deck with some because of the pip cards I feel it's pictures and symbols evoke more intuition and focus from the reader. A great deck.
