Attractive deck but the different card functions except shuffle dont present on screen. Needs an modernize as do all of the decks (I own several) to correct this issue. Latest modernize was 2017! Low score is due to non-working features...will change accordingly..
The book included with this application is the best i have ever seen explaining the card meanings Im glad they included the journal because there is so much information in the book its impossible to remember it all. Attractive artwork. Awesome tarot deck. Im very satisfied with my purchase, cant believe i got so much for so small money.
A unbelievable book for those who are interested in or love Tarot but are looking for more relatable interpretations. The queer readings are written as narratives with plenty of if;then options for the nuances of gender, sexuality, relationship dynamics, and more. Surprisingly found it very nonbinary/genderqueer- and trans-friendly! I loved this book. It’s a quick, informative and fun read that accounts for the aspects of queer life and experience that most Tarot tutorials don’t. Amazing to hold around for reference, too!
These cards are high quality. I love the thickness of the stock and the vibrant old, original artwork. Kind of cool knowing these are printed in Italy, so you aren't getting a product from a company that's only doing its best to push for bigger profit margins. The worst part about these cards is my newly revealed dubious future.
Be forewarned. I am a professional reader and have used this deck for years. My decks wear out often and I have to replace them. I just opened a fresh deck (april 2016) and along with the fresh low the quality is also low and awful. The cards are no longer glossy and much thinner than thy have ever been before. I am so upset. I don't know where I will be able to search the previous edition with more durable and glossier cards :(
Only deck I've ever really liked. I'm more of a rune guy because tarot tends to be overloaded with symbolism or biased from the root concepts. Bought this to obtain a feel for it, then the physical deck. Love the feel, love the art, love the book. Kudos to the creator.
This was my first deck purchase, and I was highly disappointed. More than a quarter of my deck are chop wrong therefore some photos are chop off. Even my box that was in a shrink wrap, had a flap torn off of it. Other than these problems the cards are a decent thickness and have lovely photos and color.
I'm not the most advanced tarot reader myself. In fact, I would still consider myself a beginner. Despite this, I still couldn't support but feel the explanations in the book were a bit dissapointing. I found myself finding much more valuable info from simply googling the cards. I know the booklets are small, but I don't believe that means they should be so.. lackluster? I have had tarot decks with little books with unbelievable explanations before (deviant moon and native america).I mainly purchased the official deck because I was having problem with my readings and felt like the original artwork would be the easiest for me to understand and keep the most power. Well, some of the interpretations sort of conflict with what I have learned so far. This should be the most accurate deck out there.I had a rider waite before just like this with the original art but it was slightly various ver or remastered.. I remember that book not leaving so much to be desired... The interpretations in the book don't seem to coincide with ones from my other tarot or info online. A lot of it is also too is one example.. the two of pentacles: "But it is also read as news and messages in writing such as, obstacles, agitation, trouble, and embroilment."I thought this was a positive card about balancing the day to day duties in one's life successfully or adapting to change.. Reversed it states it has to do with handwriting and exchange of letters. I don't see what that has to do with the card. I am not an expert myself, but I still couldn't support but feel like the book was lacking. Half the fun to me is reading the book that came with e major arcana, usually the most interesting cards or the ones that indicate the most change are very basic... Meanings just state a bunch of adjectives seperated by commas..
I am a beginner at tarot. I have always wanted to read the cards and I've had a fascination with then since I saw them on TV.I purchased this deck because I read it was the deck that most everyone e pictures are vibrant and beautiful. You can see so a lot of stories being told on just one e cards are glossy and massive but still simple to shuffle and carry around.I created a pouch to place the cards in. If you're wanting to really obtain serious about reading the cards, you'll need a dark colourful cloth or pouch and a box to shop them in. This is to hold negative energy out and your energy in. Although, my pouch sometimes plays tricks on me and hides itself in places.
I chose The Tarot of Vampyres for the attractive art and detailed card descriptions. Each card packs a lot of info, making it easier to obtain familiar with the suits in general. Tarot beginners and experts alike can have fun this deck. After a wk of using the card of the day widget, I became convinced of the accuracy, which is something I didn't expect! Each days card exactly fit happenings in my life. Also, developer help is TOP NOTCH; Jason replied w/in a day to my email and solved my issue. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
OK. If you are a person who is cisgender and heterosexual, and you read tarot, especially if you read for other people sometimes, here's what I need you to do:* Buy this book.* Read it.* Apply it to every person you read for, regardless of what you believe their sexuality or gender identity to is goes double if you're cis, het, AND white.Let's obtain this out of the method now: unless this is the first tarot book you've ever read, you may have differing interpretations of certain cards than Snow does. But, of course, this is absolutely real of every tarot book you will ever read. KEEP READING cause, in my opinion, the most valuable part of Queering the Tarot is the tools Snow for how to deconstruct and re-envision each tarot card. How to recognize that, whatever its origins, most of us learned tarot through a white, cisnormative, heteronormative, Christian-morality-heavy lens. Stepping outside of that framework can be difficult--but Snow is offering us the tools that can support us do is is vitally necessary because a lot of the cards' conventional interpretations simply don't work for queer querents (henceforth queerents) like they do for cishet folks. For instance, while a cishet person might see the Hierophant as a card of spiritual stability and community, a queerent's past experiences with the homophobia of a lot of mainstream religious institutions might leave them bracing for abuse or even expulsion from someplace they've thought of as a safe haven. On the flip side, while a cishet querent (especially a white one) might balk at the chaos and destruction of the Tower, a queerent might gleefully welcome the possibility to strike down discriminatory structures and build something new.Of course, this is also a unbelievable book for tarot readers who are themselves LGBTQQIP2SAA, especially newer readers who are struggling to connect with the cis- and heteronormativity of mainstream interpretations. Snow takes the cards' conventional meanings and their own experiences and shows us that this magical tool absolutely is "for us."Even if we only ever read for ourselves, and never for others, this book is a must-read for tarot lovers. Queering the Tarot provides not just interpretations but a whole fresh method to interact with the cards. It a welcome deepening to anyone who's willing to create the leap.
I'm not sure why some people are knocking this deck. The cards aren't THE thickest, but they're absolutely functional and sturdy. Like a standard playing card type thickness. The instruction booklet is 30some totally legible pages long and is a nice fast description of use and contents. The negative reviews created me unnecessarily hesitant to this deck.
The tales, the art, the descriptions and suggested layers of meaning and consideration always support me think in a more focused - and productive - way. If you wish a method to meditate, some support with positive and down to earth guidance, these unbelievable cards will support every time. Thank you Lisa Hunt for making these available as an application as well. I love the cards. The digital versions are unbelievable too.
This is the most attractive tarot deck I've ever seen. I love the key points for uprights and reversals. They are far less vague than other tarot deck explanations, in my opinion. I like uprights being mostly positive and reversals negative and this deck is this way. This is officially my favorite deck.
What can I say about this book? I loved it. I genuinely left this book knowing more and yet having more questions that ever before. That's a unbelievable thing! Not only does this mean I will return to the book time and again, I found that Cassandra's voice and approach was accessible for all levels of tarot reader. I was incredibly happy with the nuance she provided the Court cards in general. If you struggle with them, this may be a amazing read for you as well!I think if anyone is going to read professionally or for fun, is in the community, or wants to learn more about queer, positive, activism, and how that can apply to our ethos as tarot readers, this book is a an absolute must have on anyone's shelf.
I bought these to practice with and I like them so far. They are amazing to use since most tarot authors use this deck for their books. I did, however, keep the pack only closed by a rubber band and the cards were out of the cardboard box. The box was bent up but the cards were still in the wrapping thankfully.
Bring out your inner kid with this captivating and beautifully designed tarot. Each card has a attractive story to it that each card alone is worth the of the app. Colors are eye catching and each card has so a lot of info that I am mesmerized by each card. I love this application so much I bought the actual cards.
If only I knew about this deck when the physical deck was in print! Not only is each card illustrated with a fairy tale (and the fairy tales used are from a lot of various cultures) but the book's description of the card consists mainly of the author's remove of that fairly tale. I wanted to the physical deck - but sadly, it's out of print, and old copies are prohibitively expensive.
I've been dabbling around with the tarot for about 30 years. Had several standard Rider-Waite decks during that time..they are basically the go-to for learning tarot. Whether you continue to read with them after learning is private choice, but the standard Rider-Waite is the best tool with which to learn. My old decks were in storage and disappeared, so I required fresh ones when I got this most latest urge to take up tarot nerally speaking the coloring on the standard Rider-Waite from U.S. Android games has always been a bit garish, but not offensively so, and you obtain used to it. You might even come to prefer it (I did), which is why I decided to this upidly, I did not heed the warnings of the other one-star reviews with regards to the coloration of the current printing of the standard Rider Waite. This edition or whatever you wish to call it is really, truly, fantastically horrible. The blues are particularly, offensively bright, distracting, and artificial. These cards are so ugly and weird-looking I can't even start to contemplate trying to work with them. The woman in the Star trump looks like the old timey wrestler Dusty Rhodes, with his albino-blonde hair and orange spray tan. Just Plain Wrong.When I opened the shipping box the outer box the cards came in had no plastic on it, and had obviously already been opened, although the cards inside were shrink-wrapped in plastic. And to be clear, I did have to take the plastic off the actual deck to obtain to the real weirdness and ugliness inside, because the top card that shows through the deck shrink-wrap (The Magician) has only very small blue in it and none of the other truly odd coloring. That card (and that card alone) is relatively normal-looking. So when I took the deck out of the box, before opening the shrink-wrap and looking at the other cards, I assumed I'd gotten a satisfactory deck and the one-star reviews were probably aberrations. Not so!Bottom line: do yourself a favor and don't these, unless you wish to five bucks return shipping for the privilege of abusing your retinas.A amazing alternative is the regular size Smith-Waite Centennial deck, although the coloring isn't as clear for beginners. Watch out for size, though...the Centennials that come in a tin are the same size as playing cards, so if you wish a bigger "standard size" tarot deck obtain the Centennial without a tin.Another amazing learning tool is the Giant Rider-Waite. They're very big, almost too huge to work with, but they're fun and amazing for studying the cards. I also rebought a jumbo deck and the coloring on those is fine. The amazing old standard.Whatever alternative you choose, just please do yourself a favor and stay away from these! I want I'd heeded those other one-star reviews. Now I'm out five buck for return shipping. And maybe some eyedrops for retina abrasion.
and honestly, this is a sweet and well intentioned book but it really didn't tell me anything I didn't know, and it focused so much on the most blatant and obvious problems associated with queerness it felt more like a tutorial for cis-hets who have very small awareness of queer problems or baby LBGTQ+ folks who don't know much about being than a deeper look into queerness in the tarot. I also wasn't a large fan of the discomfort with which the emperor was handled. Like the empress as maternal man is amazing, but I think like looking for the positive traits of the emperor in LGBTQ people leaves you with a lot of amazing archetypes, the community building butch who protect others in the community, the stately grand dame of a queen who comes and tells you to pick yourself up and comb your hair and sort yourself out when you've fallen so the Hierophant. I'm certainly no Christian, and I'm adamantly an anarchist but like the Hierophant is community and tradition and those DISTINCTLY exist in the LGBTQ+ community in positive forms, think of the popular drag houses of ball culture, think of the wise elders from ACT UP and survivors of the AIDS crisis. If we are truly to queer the tarot, we have to be able to search these archetypes within our own community. I also search the individualist focus of this book somewhat uncomfortable. It's become very fashionable to atomize LGBTQ+ people and deny the need for organization, stability and community because we have been denied access to these things in straight culture, but really this just serves to leave us alone and vulnerable.I also search this to be a small bit of a fluffy tarot book. I know a lot of people think of the more intense depths of esoteric symbolism and meaning as somehow either limiting or reactionary, but I don't like being limited to surface level readings because I'm queer and effeminate. Allow me access the hermetic symbolism, allow me touch on the initiatic path of the Fool's journey
When I first started reading this book, I was a bit concerned because it felt more like a history lesson or a Wikipedia entry explaining a detailed background of Tarot and the cards involved. If you don't have a deck, after you begin reading this book you will wish to obtain a deck and begin divination right away.
Amazing for the total beginner or skeptic. I wanted more detailed meanings of the cards. This walks people thru the idea of even using them, getting a reading....not BAD just not that much information for the meanings of each card. A framework for the beginner, though, and a pleasant chatty tone. If you think the cards are spooky and maybe poor you'll feel better after reading this.
I downloaded this book because my daughter is interested in Tarot readings and I wanted to learn about her interest. This book was very interesting and provided me with a amazing understanding about Tarot. I gave this book 5 stars because it provided exactly what it promised. It provides a brief history of Tarot readings and the various deck styles. It provides info about the meaning of the cards and secrets to performing readings and how to master doing them.
I found some extra meanings for the cards useful. Ideally the beginners needs to chew on it slowly and with amazing introspection to fully benefit. A easy guide. An interesting read.
I enjoyed this book. It is was upbeat and chock full of amazing information for the beginner like myself. I liked how the book covered the history, the basics and meanings of the cards, how to use them and much more. It was also helpful for a beginner like me to see some amazing information on some of the myths out there about the cards. Amazing book I recommend it for anyone interested in learning more about tarot cards.
