I find it to be clear and feminine and direct.
Though it is a feminist deck, it is easily used with any gender, and it has graohics that speak within the TAROT and outside.
One can draw common symbology and insight using it.
I recently moved to Europe and found the deck unavailable in Denmark, so I ordered it again for my new clients here.
I rely upon it for true readings and powerful affirmations and confirmations.

I reccomend this deck to all Womyn, even though it does have a definete Lesbian slant to it. The mere fact of it being an all-female deck is fabulous! Hmmm...wonder if they have something comparable for Men.
I think this deck could be used very easily for meditation and spellwork as well divination.
The book is a must-buy, since there is no booklet enclosed, and the ordering info. does not make that clear. I don't think the author intended to "male bash", but rather to make readers aware of the nature of dualism, patriarchy, and HOW INGRAINED these are in our culture, and how we accept those viewpoints without being aware of them. This deck communicates the sheer JOY AND POWER of woman-hood, and I would not describe it as being oriented only for lesbians. I think it depicts something that women today need to reclaim: women coming together in celebration and ritual.
I would howevere, have liked to have seen a card for a male/female couple for the lovers which equalled the intensity and beauty of the two female lovers.
If I were to give a tarot deck as a gift, this would be the one I would chose.
Some complaints about the deck are for those women (like me) who are not extreme feminists or are not lesbians. Two Lovers cards are included: one female/female, and another of "beings." The two women for the Lovers is a card that shows great passion, whereas the sexless "beings" Lovers card is just . . . blah. It doesn't compare to the same-sex card, unfortunately. The deck also includes a Pan card, but it seems he has been stripped of his sexuality and masculinity. If you don't want Pan in the deck, a Coyotewoman card is also included to replace him.
The deck ends up to be a little demeaning towards men, and when you read the companion book, it's even worse. However, for those women who are comfortable with those feelings, this is an amazing deck to work with. It has always been frighteningly accurate for me, and it really does bring forth a feeling of sisterhood and rejoicing in being a woman. It's a very positive tarot deck and may be incredibly helpful.
Everything in the Majors has been renamed, and the Major Arcana is now called the Aether (or Spirit) Arcana. Then there are Blades, Cups, Pentacles, and Flames. There are no court cards; Maiden, Mother, and Crone have replaced them. Some of it is really brilliant, but it is a VERY feminist deck. It was a little overwhelming at first when I opened the deck because I didn't know that's what I had bought.
After all these years, I'm happy that I still own this deck, as it has proven itself to be a wonderful tool for personal reflection.
