Not a Fan of Secret Societies!
When I first discovered this deck online, the name completely turned me away. Not a fan of secret societies, I recoiled at the notion that the infamous Illuminati were in any way connected to the design, production or distribution of this deck. This association triggered a stubborn determination on my part not to acquire it. Regretfully, I suspect this might be an issue for many prospective buyers. The Illuminati reference signals this deck’s ability to illumine its readers. A literal reference as opposed to one about secret societies!
I kept however returning to the deck for perusal because it is just so darned beautiful and lush with symbolism! In the end, I broke down and ordered it. As soon as the deck arrived I opened it with anticipation and it honestly didn’t disappoint. Sometimes Tarot decks look so much better online but not this one. It’s every bit as lovely (if not more so) than it appeared on my monitor. The detail work, colours – well everything about it is just what you want in a Tarot deck.
Thankfully This Deck Had No Connection to Secret Societies
After purchasing the deck, I discovered much to my delight, it had nothing to do with the Illuminati society! I was thrilled. I have been a professional reader for more than 35 years and as you can imagine, I have quite a few decks in my arsenal and have read with too many to count. This deck is one I use daily in my readings. Clients love its imagery and so do I. The details, colour and characterization are brilliant.
Excellent Quality, Brilliant Details on this Tarot
The quality of the card stock, the coating and the gold around the edge are of the finest quality. This is a deck that stands up to extensive daily use.
The single only thing I would want to change is the size of the deck. The imagery is so finely detailed that I would love to be able to see it in a larger format so be able to take in all those details at a glance. I hope someday the authors decide to do that, I will be first in line to buy one.
