Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The visual elements of witchcraft are celebrated in this book and divinatory card set by Morningstar in consultation with traditional witch Gwyn). Not a conventional tarot, the cards depict a hodgepodge of goddess figures, magical elements and animal spirits; each is subtitled with its interpretative meaning (Black Cat represents "psychism," Cauldron represents "the womb"). The pen-and-ink drawings are finely detailed and brilliantly colored, although the figures look eerily nonhuman--a problem typical of divination decks. With its lavish illustrations and happy neopagan jumble of mystic associations, the pack makes a fine fall gift for amateur occultists.

Format: Paperback
The Wicca Pack consists of 42 divinatory cards and an accompanying 128 page, richly-illustrated book, all in its own sturdy case... Sally Morningstar has created a very nice tool at a great price.
The 42 unnumbered cards are beautiful renditions of some of the animals, concepts, deities, magickal beings, places of power, symbols, and tools connected to the Wiccan belief system. Each card has a word association below the identity of the card's image. Wand/Intention, Cave/Retreat, Spell/Enlightenment, Horned God/Life Force are some examples of the images depicted.
Just about half of the accompanying book is devoted to the cards -- their layout and interpretation. Interpretations include card vibration, keywords, card high and low notes, background, meaning, and a magickal exercise.
There are five spreads provided for card layout, a 7-card chakra spread, a 7-card relationship spread, a 6-card star spread, a traditional 3-card past/present/future spread and a one-card draw. I am a little surprised that Morningstar didn't include the Wheel of the Year spread as it certainly is a highly appropriate layout suggestion. Really, almost any type of spread would work with this deck.
Aside from the aforementioned pages devoted to card layout and interpretation, Morningstar also provides a Correspondence Table, Term Glossary, Address List and Index at the back of the book. The rest of the pages are devoted to information on the history, beliefs, practices and seasonal celebrations of Wicca. Morningstar includes a chapter on crafting magickal tools and provides spell or ritual ideas throughout the book.

Format: Paperback
I am not Wiccan, but I really enjoyed this book, well, mainly I enjoyed the cards that came with the book. They are beautiful! I use this pack every day to get a "preview" of what lies ahead of me during the day. I can't say it always works, but at least it's fun and it gives me something to focus on. I have to say that the longer divinations have always been correct, though, even if I didn't always like the results. The only real downside is the the cards aren't geared towards one pantheon, but then again, if you're new to the craft, this may be exactly the ecclectism that you are looking for. Regardless, the drawings alone are well worth the money! Blessed be.

A tool that doubles as a teaching aid about the Wiccan Way Jan. 1 2002

Morningstar includes a chapter on crafting magickal tools and provides spell or ritual ideas throughout the book.
One problem I had is that, despite the nice organization of the book, card interpretations weren't organized alphabetically, nor their pages listed individually in the contents, for easy information retrieval. Also, though I think she made a worthy attempt, the author was a bit too ambitious in trying to provide so much information regarding Wicca. Perhaps she should have steered the interested to other, richer resources on the topic.
It would have been much nicer instead to have more integration between the cards and the Wiccan Sabbats, Esbats or provide other ritual/magickal uses for the cards.
Despite these few shortcomings, those interested in the divinatory arts and/or Wicca will love working with this deck and will find appropriate ways to incorporate these cards into their divination work or spiritual dabblings. Those who just want to learn more about Wicca will now have a very unique way in which to do so. Recommended for divination and magickal practitioners of all skill levels.

Amazing Feb. 5 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have a few of the book by this author, There all amazing. She explains everything very very well. The cards are amazing and all the readings with these cards are very accurate. But not as much as the tarot because the tarot has more cards in it. But this is great for starting out with. Even if your more experinced its a great set to have. 2 thumbs way up I recommend all the books from this author.

Beautiful cards....simple book. Oct. 4 2005
By Blue In The Face - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This divination/meditation set boasts some great artwork. The 'instruction' book is a little too simple. The cards are great for beginners and the experienced. The book, on the other hand, is leaned more towards novices. All in all pretty nice.

I had been looking for this book and deck for years - why oh why is it out of print??? I absolutely love it. Beautifully illustrated/photographed and of exceptional quality. A true gem. My favourite deck. A powerful and creative tool to step through the inner doorway of heart magic.
