I was dubious at first when I saw this product. I have been a practising Wiccan for many years and wondered if this set of cards could offer me anything new. However I was intrigued and bought it. I dont regret that for a second. The cards are beautiful and the book is very informative. It does go back to basics but I think even by doing this it offers something for the beginner to the advanced. It is practical and hands on, with instructions on how to make your own wand to cards for inner meditation work. I found it very useful and alot of fun to use!

I was given this by my mother as a christmas present. I knew that it was fairly new and coz of that not many reviews had been written about it. So as i flicked through the book i didnt have any preconceptions - and i have to say i was amazed.
This is the ultimate for anyone, but i think it would appeal more to teenagers for some reason more than adults, who wants to learn about Wicca. IF your new to Wicca and want to learn a divination tool as well then get this!
The book spends a while going through Wiccan and magickal practises before actually gettin to the cards. The book goes into detail on how to make a wand and other tools of the trade you'd need.
One thing that i felt was alittle left out was what her inspiration into making the cards were. Dont get me wrong they are wonder cards and i look forward to the many insights they will give me, and they've given some already, but i wish there was a page or two about why she decided to make a deck of cards for Wiccans and where each idea came from.
The cards are perfect for anyone thats dauted or not interested in tarot or runes and the other types of divination out there. The book is also invaluable to anyone thats new to Wicca. Most of all its a British author! Something that is rare with all the American books on the market!
Blessings unto all

The delightful cards in Sally Morningstar's insightful pack are very welcome in an oracular category that is dominated by lacklustre variants of Pamela Coleman Smith's Rider-Waite Tarot pack. These colourful cards are refreshingly positive, guiding rather than obligating, encouraging rather than disempowering. Images are taken from a range of sources and traditions that have been astutely amalgamated into Sally's kaleidoscope of good counsel. Something special in a washed-out world.

These cards are worthy of very high praise indeed.Good for beginner to advanced,the well detailed and well illustrated book that comes with them is concise and straight to the point.Great artwork too on large cards.A slight criticism is that the cards are square rather than round on the corners,so this does not help them to wear so well.
Very deep readings can be done with these cards,and they probably are best for the magickally inclined.
