About the Author
In the early 1990s, at a party, someone put a tarot deck in Barbara's hands; she's held on tightly ever since. Tarot provides just enough structure so that we don't get lost as we explore the mysteries, plumb our dark corners, and locate our North Stars. Barbara has been reading and writing for as long as she can remember. She's published a number of books on tarot, including Tarot for Beginners, Tarot Spreads, The Steampunk Tarot, The Gilded Tarot, The Mystic Dreamer Tarot, and Tarot of the Hidden Realm. Writing is solitary work and is relieved by teaching tarot at conferences around the world. Barbara also loves working directly with clients, helping them uncover guidance and insight in the cards. Connect with Barbara online at www.tarotshaman.com. Linda Ravenscroft is a self-taught British artist. From art prints to cards to ceramics, her art has been published around the world. Her fantasy images have also appeared in magazines, books, and calendars. For over a decade, Barbara Moore (Minnesota) has studied and practiced tarot. She is a Certified Tarot Reader through the American Tarot Association and has spoken at tarot conferences around the country.

While there are male images throughout the deck, the female images are stronger. Female warriors, female figureheads. The Sun which most associate with male energies, is very much female and strong in appearance. In the Lovers card, the woman stands above the male image. The male images almost stand as consort to the female images.
This imagery will determine who purchases this deck. I do not see many men using this deck. However, if you have some very feminine clients, this deck may be one that speaks to them. I noticed that my very feminine clients liked this deck, but most noticed the absence of very decisive male imagery.
The deck could speak to some teenage girls who are looking for their first deck and are very into faerie imagery. The images are soft, non - threatening. Even the devil card seemed almost friendly.
The imagery does relate to the Rider Waite deck, as I mentioned, and using this deck should be no problem for those familiar with this layout. There are 22 Trump cards and the suits are wands, cups, swords and pentacles. The court cards are (in order in the book) Queen, King, Knave and Knight. And going back to a teenage girl's first deck, the images will work as basics for reading the tarot.Read more ›
Now; don't get me wrong; this is still a very lovely Deck. It comes with a lovely glossy and substantial book of Interpretations, scans of every Card, advice, and quite a few different and unusual Spreads which I do like - but it's the actual Cards themselves I have a problem with...
Basically; these Cards look delightful if you look at them one by one, but laid out in Spreads - they almost all look alike (at a glance) they're SO delicately done, that at times there appears simply no difference or colour in each, which makes them difficult to read or seem significant... This is such a shame, because the quality is nice, and as I say; the book is excellent. It's a Deck I'd probably have been pleased to own had it been perhaps given to me as a gift, but if I had my time to go over again, I perhaps would not have purchased it myself...
If that's not enough for you, then try the exceptionally amazing book that goes with them.The whole book is a delight to hold and read.
I was instantly enchanted with them when they arrived. I am sure they would be suitable for anyone with an interest in Fae, magic, fantasy, nature, art, gentleness, a desire to heal the world etc....
They are loosely based on the rider waite system, but with all the harshness removed.
The meanings are a little different from Rws, and as some of the reviews suggest, they may take a little getting used to. I don't care how long it takes me to get used to them, they are all, each and everyone of them adorable.
I was looking for a tarot that was magical, gentle and easy to interpret, well After 20 odd years I have finally found it.
I give this deck 7 stars!
Thank you for the creation of them.
