Review by Solandia

The Mythical Goddess Tarot, the creation of Sage Holloway and Katherine Skaggs, is a transformational deck designed to assist you in realising your true potential, and your Divine Feminine essence. It’s a self-contained tarot set, that can be used on its own without a great deal of prior tarot experience.

Sage Holloway is an intuitive and professional reader, and an expert in vibrational medicine. Her concept for the deck merges “her love of the Goddess and the art of tarot”. Katherine Skaggs, who brought the deck’s concept to reality, is a visionary artist and self-described painter of souls. Her artwork on these cards is mostly timeless, and tending towards abstract, but with occasional modern touches, like the umbrella and gumboots in the 10 of Wind (Illusion).

The major arcana cards show goddesses and female deities from cultures around the world - Christian, Celtic, Egyptian, Chinese, Hawaiian, Native American – with deep purple borders (in slightly varying shades, probably due to the printing process). The titles have been changed to better fit the feminine spirituality theme of the deck.

0 – Fool (Uzume)
I – Sorceress (Morgan le Fay)
II – High Priestess (Isis)
III – Empress (Kuan Yin)
IV - Power (Lilith)
V – Wise Woman (Sophia)
VI – Ecstatic Union (Shakti)
VII – Chariot (Athena)
VIII – Sacred Law (Crow Woman)
IX – Oracle (Yemaya)
X – Wheel of Fortune (Lakshmi)
XI – Sacred Fire (White Buffalo Calf Woman)
XII – Sacrifice (Mother Mary)
XIII – Death (Kali)
XIV – Alchemy (Brigid)
XV – Initiation (Mary Magdalene)
XVI – Purifier (Pele)
XVII – The Star (Pleiadian Star Goddess)
XVIII – The Moon (Ix Chel)
XIX – The Sun (Amaterasu)
XX – The Great Void (Aditi)
XXI – The World (Gaia)

The suits in the Mythical Goddess Tarot are strongly elemental. Seas (equivalent to Cups) with a strong watery energy and scenes of dolphins, mermaids with flowing hair, waves and waterfalls. Wind (Swords) are edged with a border the colour of a cloud-dotted blue sky, and depict mental states and energy: the 9 of Winds (Criticism) is a strong visual interpretation of this card, showing a red-painted face with jagged lightning bolts streaming from mouth, eyes and forehead. Earth (Pentacles) are edged in a spring green and have images of growing trees, flowers, harvest, community and human interaction. Fire (Wands) have a warm to hot energy with orange borders and flames appearing in many cards.

Physically, the cards are glossily laminated and a little sticky (my cards were stuck together after opening and had to be individually separated before use). The set also includes a 128-page bound companion book, with full-colour illustrations, which is a useful adjunct to the cards.. The cards could be quite easily used intuitively or from prior tarot experience - without a book at all - but the text gives two Goddess spreads, explains a little background on the art chosen for the card, and provides some expanded spiritual teachings and advice.

On first opening the Mythical Goddess Tarot deck, I liked the look of the artwork but wasn’t sure how it would hold together as a workable deck. Reading with it was a pleasant surprise -- the images are full of feeling and energy, and easily useable without extensive study. The colour-coding makes it easy to get a feel for a card (or a spread) at a glance, and the scenes provide a jumping-off point for intuitive understanding. I found it particularly good for drawing a card of the day.
