this is one of the most beautiful and delightful decks i have ever come across. i have worked my way thru many and teach the Tarot thru my school, the Scottish School of Tarot. This has just got to be the most relevent to life in the 21st century. The graphics are amazing and the symbolism loose enough to allow many meaning to drift thru the cards. i am simply in love with them. I also feel that the client can see that the reading is very honest due to the straight forward way the cards answer a question. there is no way of 'hiding' a negative answer as the cards really do say what they mean. I am actually going to have to purchase a new Rohrig deck as mine are simply wearing out thru constant use. Set your mind free and explore 78 cards which really do reflect real life!!!!

This is without question a beautiful book. The illustrations alone are worth the cover price (if your a fan of the style ... as I am). In addition, his wife Carol, has written the commentary on the cards. She offers a comtemporary commentary on this ancient means of divination and prophecy bringing it cleanly into the present. While the text is updated the references used include symbolism associated with more traditional decks such as the Waite. Rohrig has interpeted the tarot according to both the traditional symbols found in older decks and his own more contemporary mystical insights. I personally enjoy using this deck for the illustrations and the symbols contained therein as I tend to a more Jungian approach to tarot and this deck is particularly appropriate to an archetypal reading. I have also found that the comments on the cards and the interpertations Carol Rohrig offers to be useful and illuminating additions to my usage of the tarot. As an additional or only tarot deck for those of you who would like a more contemporary approach I recommend this deck without reservation.

This tarot provides a good tool for daily mediative readings. I have used it most effectively in giving readings to others, for the visual imagery is stunning, the addition of runes in the major arcana symbolism is exquisite, and the use of modern day symbols helps those I'm giving a reading understand the cards themselves. quite useful, extremely beautiful.
