Description

78 cards plus one extra card with publication details, packaged in a standard cardboard tuck box.

On the bottom of the box, the phrase "Not sold separately" appears, suggesting that this deck was originally sold as part of a set. However, I do not have any book or LWB with this deck. I purchased it used.

Cards are 13.4 cm tall x 9 cm wide.

Backs are almost, but not quite, fully reversible. You have to look closely to notice that, though.

Strength is 11 and Balance (aka Justice) is 8. The Fool is numbered as 0, and the Aces are all numbered as 1 (for example, "1 of Wands" instead of "Ace of Wands").

Suits are Swords, Wands, Disks, and Cups. Each suit has a different colored border. Swords have yellow borders, Cups have blue borders, Wands have pink borders, and Disks have green borders. The major arcana have purple borders.

Courts are Teacher, Server, Healer, and Master. I confess, I cannot tell for certain which court name corresponds with which traditional court name. I think the Teacher = Page and the Healer = Queen, but without an instructional guide, I cannot tell for certain.

Many, though not all, of the majors are renamed, and all cards (including minors) have a word, brief phrase, or question for thought printed at the top, in addition to the card titles at the bottom.

The card stock is thin and flexible and easy to shuffle. The cards have a shiny coating, but are not at all sticky. The deck was printed in China.

The card art relies heavily on soft purples and pinks and has a distinctly New Age, feminine vibe. The art is pretty, but so "busy" that I personally find this a challenging deck to read with.

The cards are fully scenic.

In terms of system and symbolism, you can see a RWS influence, but overall this deck is doing its own thing. It seems geared towards readers who prefer to use tarot for personal insight, healing and spiritual growth.
