Happy Star Tarot

Dublin Core


Happy Star Tarot


78 cards + 2 blank cards + a 97 page LWB in a thin cardboard tuck box.

The LWB is entirely in Russian, with no English translations or equivalents. On the cards themselves, the titles are in English-only. The box has English text on one side and Russian text on the other.

The cards measure 7.1 cm wide x 12.5 cm long. The card stock is very flexible, with a smooth, mostly-matte finish.

The card back design is fully reversible. 

The major arcana are unnumbered. 

Suits are Swords, Cups, Wands, and Pentacles. The court cards are Page, Knight, Queen, and King.

The minor arcana are scenic in the RWS style. Many, though not all, of the minor cards are clones of the RWS. However, the majors and courts depart too far from the traditional images for me to classify the deck as a RWS clone.

Insofar as RWS style decks go, the one feature of the Happy Star that stands out to me is the sort of aqua-teal blue shade used for the card backgrounds. It's not enough of a selling point for me to recommend this deck to anyone other than collectors.

I purchased this tarot from "irzhitarot" on Etsy in March 2020.
