Is it weird to buy a deck simply because the backs were so well done? That’s essentially what I did here and I have no shame! I did of course look at what some of the cards had to offer before purchasing but I’ve heard so many great things I didn’t hesitate at all.
The box has a wonderful matte finish to it. Very soft and it feels so great to handle. Not to mention how lovely the box looks. I’ve been keeping it out on one of my altars since I got it and it really does usher in spring to me. 🙂 I enjoy that the cards fit snug in the box and I can be confident that they will be protected if I take this deck on the go with me.
I really wish the guide book was larger, ugh! It’s pretty slim, only 67 pages, but I love how positive the book is. It supplies you with some sample spreads, offers some help as to clearing your deck (I always appreciate this!) and then goes on to explain the meaning of each card. The guidebook offers advice with each card instead of simply telling you ‘this card means this’ which I really love. I really enjoy decks that have faith in you!
Those *backs*! I had seen pictures of this card back all over the internet and I was so happy to find they look just as amazing in person. The card stock is to die for. They are matte, velvety and soft. It shuffles amazingly well, doesn’t clump and there is just such a satisfying sound when shuffling. Swoon!
I will admit that the artwork is really busy. Much like the Shadowscapes Tarot, there is a lot to look at and a lot to take in. The first couple of pulls from this deck I found myself getting lost in the artwork and all the different meanings that my head felt a bit jumbled. But I can’t deny how gorgeous the artwork is. It’s printed so clearly and the colors are so beautiful that it draws out so many feelings and emotions with each card.
For me this deck has been working great as a daily draw type of deck or a great oracle supplement to a full Tarot reading. There is a lot to dive into each card that I find entire spreads with this deck incredibly distracting. I’ll definitely need to work with this deck more and get comfortable with it before laying down entire spreads, but I’m super excited about the idea!
Overall I’m incredibly happy with this purchase! I’ve been using this as a daily draw for about a week now and I find myself so excited to get this deck out each time. It really is an uplifting deck that impresses me with each card. 🙂 I’ll certainly be doing lots of journal work with this one!
