"Reading with this deck is an extremely easy and pleasant process. I find that the glowing shapes set against the black backgrounds tend to stimulate the intuition. The adherence to RWS concepts in the Minor scenes means that experienced readers won't have to struggle for meanings, while inexperienced readers will find a friendly guiding hand in the accompanying book. For those who are looking for an exceptionally attractive, straightforward deck which gives creative interpretations for the Majors but retains familiar meanings for the Minors, this will be the one. I predict this will be a very successful deck for Llewellyn, and deservedly so." Lee Bursten on tarotpassages.com
