I’ve seen this deck used in videos from time to time but never really thought anything of it. I didn’t know what it was really; was it an Oracle deck? Tarot deck? It sure said Tarot Cards on the box but they look and read like Oracle cards! Then I saw it was in the Top 10 most popular Tarot Decks on Amazon and it made me dig a little deeper. It made me feel like I was missing out on something and now I’m glad I followed that instinct!
While I can’t provide a proper review yet since I just received and unboxed the cards today, there are a few first impressions that I want to point out. Firstly, those gilded edges! I tried to snap a photo of the intense shine on the card boarders since I just love it! However, be prepared to be completely covered in glitter. It will be on your clothes, in the palms of your hands, on the table, everywhere. I’m sure it won’t be a problem after a couple of readings, but be prepared for that glossy glow!
Now that you have a new shine to your look, also be prepared for achy hands. This deck is HUGE. It’s the same size as Oracle cards (wider than standard Tarot cards) however instead of around 40ish cards, they are a 78 card full size standard Tarot deck. I’m having a challenging time shuffling these because of small hands, so I may have to figure out a different technique for these. On a similar topic, most of the cards came stuck together. So I had to make sure and go through each card individually to make sure they weren’t stuck to the back of the previous card.
Other than those concerns, I’m really loving it. The card stock is great, the artwork paints a magical story and the accompanied definitions on the bottom of the cards just seem to make me smile as I flip through them. I haven’t done any readings with the deck yet so I can’t report on how well it reads, but I honestly can’t wait to dig in!
Do you have this deck? What do you think of it? How well does it read for you?
Until next time!
