Review by Anna
This is my first and only tarot-deck. I have
thought about getting a new one. But there is so much to
discover about this deck. I would not say that this is a
deck for beginners. The symbols are very easy to
interpret. But the little book that comes along with the deck
is written in gibberish I think. I have after seven
years of sporadical studies found out that the best way
to use it is by just using your intuition and
imagination. Of course with the little book as a help. But not
as the only guide to the interpretations.
The pictures are cartoon-like and very beautiful. My favourite
is The Moon which has a very magical feeling in it.

very often. The cards are of normal tarot-size which is
a little too big for me, but they are easy to handle
overall. I donīt think it would do the cards justice if the
deck was smaller.
The people on the cards are very
tall, thin and beautiful but that is always how it is in
cartoons. And they really speak to me. The animals are very
life-like and well-drawn. I love animals and therefor this
is a very important part for me.

deck I had only seen The Magician. And only in a very
small picture in a catalogue. But when it arrived I was
thrilled! The colors, the people, the wonderful animals! And
the back of the cards are also very nice. Blue and
black with disks, cups, wands and swords in a mix in the

when you do you have a deck that you donīt want to be
