4.0 out of 5 stars An animal tarot, destined to be a hit with animal lovers., 12 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Animal-Wise Tarot (Paperback)
Tarot is for the birds, you say? Yes, and the bees and reptiles too! This Tarot deck is totally devoted to the imagery and symbolism of animals. Those who work with animal totem energies will really get into this deck, not necessarily for the cards themselves, but for the way author Andrews instinctively linked appropriate animals to what he believed to be their corresponding Tarot energies. Andrews has worked extensively with animals and claims to have a long history of working with the tarot. This does seem to be reflected here in this work. He chose a particular animal for a particular card because he believed it most strongly reflected the meaning of that particular card. Some connections are very obvious, such as the Snake for death. To me, others seemed a bit more subtle, such as choosing the bees (fertility / spiritual choice) to represent the lovers. Card suits are -- four-leggeds:mammals (Pentacles), winged ones: birds (Swords), shapeshifters: insects/arachnids (Cups), and the ancients: reptiles (Wands). It is a worthy effort, Andrews has put a lot of heart and soul into this work. He creates some wonderful connections between the animal kingdom and tarot card symbology. I would have liked it better if Andrews had done a more artistic interpretation of the animals and their energies on the cards, instead of what looks to be beautiful stock photo images of them. Also, I wish more had been done to address how to use the cards in totem work. It might also prove difficult for novices to learn with these cards because there is no familiar Tarot imagery present.
