Customer Review

on 7 May 2012
This is a sixty-four card deck, due to the absence of any Court cards. The author's reason for this is that "as the Major Arcana always indicate powerful people in your life, these are the cards to look for when trying to discover exactly who is playing a vital role in your destiny". The Major cards are numbered from one to twenty-two, starting with the Fool, and three of them have different names, i.e. 'The Hierophant' becomes 'Tradition', 'Death' becomes 'Change', and 'The Devil' becomes 'Bondage'. None of the Major cards bears it own number, although the numbers are shown in the instruction booklet. Every card in the deck shows a few key words.

The Minor cards are at times sensual, sometimes childlike and always enchanting. All in all, it is a very feminine deck and the author's use of vivid colours is truly inspired.

I'm not sure I agree with Cavendish that the Major cards are a good replacement for Court cards, especially as these days, the Court cards aren't necessarily seen as just representing people. Nor do I particularly agree that the Major cards always indicate powerful people. It is too prescriptive for my taste, but no doubt will suit some. Nevertheless, it wouldn't stop me from using the deck as it really is beautiful - a bit like opening a box of chocolates and finding all your favourites and none of the ones you don't like so much!
