Some of the traditional names of cards in the Major Arcana have been changed (Justice becomes Adjustment, Strength becomes Lust, etc.). I feel that some of these changes are more appropriate than others, but that is my own reaction and what is important is that you choose a deck that's right for you.
One criticism is that the artwork on the numbered cards of the Minor Arcana offers few clues as to the meaning of the cards (if this is important to you, a deck such as the Rider-Waite deck may be more appropriate). However, at the bottom of each numbered card is one word which summarizes its meaning.
Also in the Minor Arcana, names of court cards have been altered somewhat. Kings become Knights, Knights become Princes, and Pages become Princesses. This adds gender balance to the deck.
Another thing to consider when thinking about buying this deck is your level of knowledge about the tarot and the occult in general. There is a lot of symbolism in this deck; each Major Arcana card also includes the Hebrew letter and the astrological symbol that are connected with the card.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
The Book of Thoth, Crowley's commentary on his deck, is awfully dense for a beginner or for someone just interested in Tarot and not the occult underpinnings. On the other hand, the little cheat sheet booklet that comes with the deck is pretty good, and probably all you need to start doing readings.
As for doing readings, treat the deck in the same way you would treat a friend - with respect, casually when appropriate, never carelessly, always with great personality.
Owned at least 20 decks before, and always return to this one.
It just arrived in the post and on big lettering on the front:
"INCLUDES THREE VERSIONS OF THE MAGUS CARDS"
The colors also seem good. I borrowed a friends older, albeit well worn deck, for a year and those colors seemed much darker. This deck seems to have much better contrast, can actually see the colors. At first glance the symbols and meaning stand out more because of this. Yes, the palette it does seem to be more pasel, heading towards "washed out" but at least i can see colours now, whereas the other version was mostly darker blobs.
Size seems good too, slightly bigger than your standard (bicycle) playing card.
Nice packaging. Two boxes: a small one to hold the cards and mini booklet, the other to contain the big "Ancient 10-Card" (ie Celtic Cross) playmat/guide and the cardbox.
Time and readings will be the real test. But right now, Happy Happy.
