When I first began reading tarot, I saw this deck everywhere. Everyone in the tarot community seemed to really love everything about this deck, but I never could bond with the photos I had seen. When I first received this deck, I felt that exact feeling all over again. I was incredibly disappointed because the art is truly exceptional, but I still could not get much feeling from the deck.
As part of a tarot challenge, I kept trying to use the deck and eventually began bonding with it. I found myself so drawn to its beauty and depth, that I really couldn’t believe how much my opinion had changed.
For beginners: this deck may be incredibly difficult to read. Despite having been an avid reader for over 2 years, I still have difficulty reading into these cards. However, the small pamphlet that comes with the deck is very useful.
My only complaint is that the deck tends to read “darkly” because of the colour pallet, despite the readings having positive or uplifting meanings. This is not a major issue for myself, but maybe for others. 5 people found this helpful
