This review is from: Universal Tarot of Marseille Boxed Set: 64pp Book & 78 card Tarot Pack Set (Paperback)
I've been playing with these for a while now; how nice to get back to basics!
I find it's too easy to become confused with the more modern decks and their interpretations - with this set, the cards are as about as basic as you can get; they go back to the time when the tarot were simply playing cards.
The booklet suggests easy and effective divination techniques that a beginner can understand and build on as they become more familiar with the cards. The pip's are based on the classical suit's as relating to the four elements and numerology; which are a basic's for any new Occult student. No confusing pictures of people with swords in their backs or children playing happily with their parents tho'....
I know some people don't like the look of this deck but I do - I find it very pleasing compared with some of the more photographic quality modern decks.
It's said that every tarot reader should create their own deck and I agree - but for the beginner, as I've stated, it can be confusing gathering the knowledge needed to do this; I suggest you base that knowledge on these cards, as they're a good basis with simple uncomplicated images.
Highly recommended and not just for beginners either :)
