I’m not especially articulate, so please excuse me for keeping this review brief.
I met this deck in the late 1980s as one of the first decks I owned. Almost ten years later this deck was coveted by a friend and then stolen! I think that speaks to the wonderful and welcoming nature of this deck.
This deck was awesome for me when I was just a beginner. My readings were frighteningly accurate and using this deck also allowed me to learn the finesse of creating a free-flowing, insightful story. Other decks didn’t facilitate this.
If you love cats and sci-fi, this deck is for you. It’s a classic and it is artistically appealing.
The book was vital in my opinion, as the stories about the kingdoms and personas portrayed in the cards enriched the meanings of the tarot archetypes for me thus bringing more form to my readings.
I recently replaced the deck stolen from me in the 1990s. I was so happy to see the set for sale again. It was like reuniting with an old friend.
