I've been reading the tarot for ten years, and I've collected many different decks during that time, always searching for my perfect deck, the deck that would really speak to my soul. Well I've found it! This deck is so beautiful. I haven't stopped using the cards since I got them. Any excuse for a reading and I get them out - they're such a pleasure to use.

I collect tarot decks and I've been finding it difficult to use a deck that could be reliable and easy to use for simple readings -until I came across Cilla Conway's The Intuitive Tarot. It can be used creatively as well as literally, it sparks the imagination and, as stated, it 'unlocks the power of your unconscious'. I am so pleased with it, I am now using it all the time. And by the way, the artwork is first quality and a delight to look at!

I bought this deck at the London Tarot Festival 4th of July weekend, having never seen a single card of it. This is something I have never done before. My tarot life began in the digital age, where any tarot you can think of can be viewed and ordered online. It was a new experience for me, and an impulse buy. I thought I'd give you my impressions of the deck having worked with it for a week.

Thoth Influence
The first thing I said to myself when I starting flicking through this deck was 'Thoth-based'. Now that I have worked with it for a time, I would amend that to 'Thoth-influenced'. There are only a few cards that use images directly from Thoth: Hermit, Strength, Hanged Man and Sun. The rest of the deck may be reminiscent of Thoth in mood, but that is down to art style and not the deck's system or meanings. The majority of the deck seems to me to lean far more toward the traditional RWS, not just because the pip cards are illustrated and most of them are riffs on the RWS images, but because the interpretations supplied in the companion book seem to me, on the whole, to be more Waite than Crowley.

Rider Waite Smith
For example, though the art style may have a slightly Thothy feel and Thothy names (Discs instead of Pentacles), the scenes are decidedly RWS: 3 of Cups, 8 of Swords, 6 of Swords and 8 of Discs all have the RWS scenes we might expect. The 3 of Cups shows 3 revelers lifting their cups to the sky. The 8 of Swords shows someone tied up, surrounded by swords (though the means of escape is not quite so obvious in this depiction). the 6 of Swords shows the classic retreat to new shores in a boat. And the 8 of Discs shows the craftsman or apprentice churning out copies of his product.

i'm pretty new to tarot, and have collected several decks over the past year, but this is the first to speak directly to my soul. following in the rider-waite tradition, every card tells a story which is a remarkable achievement by the artist. the images have an art nouveau feel - fluid, organic shapes and strong facial features - my first reaction was they'd been created in the 1920s! i'm really looking forward to working with these cards and recording my intuitive responses to each card in the lovely 240pp book included in the set!

My first reading was not about any problems but about finding the correct pathway to the intuition. There are many pathways, mostly expressive pathways which are used to communicate with members of our species.

Then the next day once I found the pathway I went deeper into a room of paintings. Normally when a pick a card I find it on one of these paintings.

I am not very subtle with intuition, though I specialize in passion and in Kindle I have published a book called 101 Aphorisms On The Pathos And Nature Of Passion. Passion is in no way connected to intuition so I found it a good deal and no cards were missing.

Surprisingly can be used for future readings past 2 years but one has to find an external pathway into reality. Though I am guessing this deck is not intended for this purpose, will do an update to this review in 3 years time, maybe....

In her book, the Intuitive Tarot, Cilla Conway says:

"The Intuitive Tarot had its beginning one evening in 1973 when a doodle of the Fool appeared unbidden on my page. His eyes, strange and compelling, invited me to follow him into his world. I have been following him ever since. You may not find him appealing; he overthrows our comfortable convictions, making us question our values and those of society; but if you want to recover joy and innocence in your life, the Fool is the figure you need to connect with."

If you are familiar with the classical tarot decks such as Raider Waite (which I adore), you will be able to read and use The Intuitive Tarot easily. Cilla gives guidance on both traditional meanings and intuitive interpretations she developed. The Major and Minor Arcana cards are introduced in turn and there is space for the reader to record their own impressions of each card. The information Cilla provides for each card in the book, is enriched with a blend of Jungian, Greco-Classical, and Mythology.

In Cilla's book information on each card is sectioned into: aspects of each card, how to work with it, to dialogue with it, starter interpretation, and reversed interpretation. The dialogues are thought provoking and can be used as visualisations to help familiars yourself with each image. The first thing I learnt from my friend and teacher Merryn José was how to communicate with each card, and find out what it means to me, as it appears in various positions, or houses, in a spread; upright as well as reversed. The Intuitive Tarot and its accompanying book allow you to do just that.

Art and Intuition

While one can be subjective about art, Cilla Conway's Intuitive Tarot is about releasing one's intuition.
