2.0 out of 5 stars The Halloween Tarot from a British perspective!, 24 Aug. 2006
This review is from: Halloween Tarot Set (Has99) (Paperback)
This is not a tarot deck for the first time user! The suits are different (pumpkins = pentacles, ghosts = cups, bats = swords and Imps = Wands). The black cat travelling with you on each card is a nice touch but the cards designs are very 'cartoon like' and not at all in the Tim Burton style that I was led to believe they were (the Emporer is portrayed as Frankenstein with green square head and bolts in his neck for example). It seems they are designed around the love of an All American Halloween (which I think is celebrated differently to a British Halloween!) so for that reason I found it hard to relate to the cards. I prefer my Halloween to be a bit more dark and gothic! :o)

I found the book that comes with the cards quite basic, it contains 1 page of narrative for each card but 3/4 of the narrative is describing the 'fun halloween image' depicted on the card rather than explaining the definitive meanings. It gives a few key words for each card but I didn't find these particularly perceptive. For example, in the blurb for The Fool it says something like 'The silly fool has not noticed he is about to fall off the cliff!'..Hmmm I can't say this gives a true understanding of The Fools journey for me!

This tarot deck may be good for the odd light hearted reading with someone who is experienced enough at tarot to understand the fundamental meaning of each card already, but I have to say that was disappointed overall.
