This review is from: SPIRIT OF FLOWERS TAROT (cards) (Paperback)
Looks pretty - but is an awful Deck...
Firstly; these did not look as nice as I'd seen them in images on the Internet. They looked very quaint and cute, but upon receipt, somehow were disappointing... `The Flower Speaks' by Marlene Rudginsky is a far nicer Deck in my opinion. (see my Review for that one)
Secondly; though I always say that one should never give a negative Review for a poor Booklet alone, I suppose I would be doing the same myself, but for the fact I have nothing positive to say about the Deck either... Anyway; the Booklet is also awful... There are NO interpretations for any of the Cards at all - not even a single sentence! Only a long list of key words, and so if you're not familiar with Tarot, then I would leave these well alone... The annoying thing is; these Cards are not cheap wherever you purchase them, and thus wish I'd held on to my money now...
Thirdly; just the key words would not have been so bad - at least as a start for interpretation, but there are just so many for each Card - and so many that are in conflict with each other... For example; some Cards will have a key word such as `prosperity' and then say `downfall' in the same list for definition! Now; if you're not very experienced in Tarot, and thus able to distinguish which Card's key word is the one to use in relation to other Cards within a particular Spread and so on - then what use are these? You'll end up very confused indeed... (I pity the Novice using this Deck...)
I did myself a Reading using the `Corolla' Spread (which is the only one given in the Booklet) and the Reading went completely both ways; it could have been good - it could have been bad (from using the key words in the Booklet) and so which was correct!?? I have no idea and am completely bemused...
All in all; a dreadful Deck and I suggest you not be taken in by the sweet look of them.
