The English explanation is very good.You'll need it because it's not a deck like the usual Rider White tarot deck. This card deck goes very deep, you have to study the Orishas (they roughly can be compared to the Mayor Arcana, but are not numbered) very well. The Orishas are compared to Saints /supernatural beings, the essence of the Creator- but as you continue it will become all clear , after reading the text you will get the essence of these cards.(but please study it very well and every time you look at it you'll discover new aspects)
These cards are very good if you want to work on your spiritual growth and to get a better insight to human natur and in your own nature. If you use it for predictions it will get you to the center of the problem,but they will always gives a solution even if you don't like it.(the solution :) )
It's good to study these cards and make it your own.

These cards are beautifully illustrated! I was surprised at the rich colors and beautiful depictions of the Orishas. I highly reccomend the "how to" book, because the booklet that comes with the cards is kind of crappy. They are an excellent collector's item AND perfect for everyday use. (If you can imagine that!) I really like them and suggest any serious tarot card reader or person interested in Santeria or reading get these.
