4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best recent tarot deck releases May 24 2012
By Mrs. D. L. Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
I need to start by saying, I appreciate we all look for different things in a tarot deck. Some like decks heavy in symbolism or steeped in history. Others like themed decks. And then we come to the issue of medium used. Some love computer enhanced - imagery others wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. I have always had a soft spot for decks which are hand drawn and coloured. I find they often have a heightened sense of personality, as well as often being very expressive. So being a hand drawn/coloured deck may not appeal to everyone. The images can appear a little busy, but if you relax into reflecting on the imagery, you do find the key points quite easily amongst the peripheral action.

This deck caught my eye due to the fact the artwork was right up my street. In addition, it depicted modern day scenarios and images. When I do face to face readings, I like to use decks the receiver of the reading can feel comfortable with. It makes my day if they see exactly what I am saying and why, due to the image on the card making perfect sense with their current (and very modern day) circumstances. Well, the images on this deck are most definitely readily identifiable. The 4 of water shows someone who is zoning out of life, and going through the motions of walking down the street listening to headphoned music. This image does let us really us our imagination as to what is going on and why. And this follows for the majority of the deck. Who hasn't sat in a traffic jam as shown on the Major Arcana card 12. (It has been renamed as choice). Do you stay there and creep along, or do you choose a different, and perhaps unfamilar route?

There have already been detailed reviews left regarding the deck, so I will not go into detail, but will leave a sense of how it works in a reading. I appreciate some collect decks for artwork alone, or as meditation decks. I would suggest this may not really be the most ideal deck for those uses. It really does want to be used in the field so to speak, and in my opinion that is where it comes into its own.

The small book is compact, but do not think being small it is scant. It uses a few words where only a few are necessary, and will kickstart the imagination for sure. I also like how there is a small thumbnail image of each card when reading it's description.

The box it comes with is very solid and one of the better boxes to come with a deck. With regards to the card size, it is quite large. I am a trimmer, and have taken the scissors to this deck and removed the top and side borders. It is now a lot easier to shuffle, but this is not something I would recommend to the faint hearted or those inexperienced in trimming large borders off tarot decks !

This has become one of 4 decks I take with me when conducting readings at festivals. It really is a workhorse of a deck and never leaves me scratching my head as to what the heck is going on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern and Easy to Understand Oct. 31 2011
By Cheri Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
I collect Tarot decks, so when I saw this new one, I had to have it. I have not been disappointed. In fact, I am rather excited and enchanted with the deck. The basic symbolism of the Tarot decks of old is represented in a fresh modern way. Today's lifestyle is beautifully represented in the masterful artwork on each card. The book accompanying the deck gives twofold insight into each card. First there is a paragraph about the overall essence of the card and how it relates to modern life. Then an explanation is given as to how to interpret each card in a reading. This information makes the deck one of the easier to use.

I highly recommend this deck for anyone with an interest in the Tarot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly Modern Tarot Jan. 25 2012
By Theresa Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
Tired of looking at the traditional tarot images of kings and queens? Want a fresh, modern perspective? Then look no further than "Today's Journey Tarot" by Expanding Dimensions (authors Ben Perry, Teresa Sue McAdams, John Lavey, Pat Lavey and Bonnie Taylor) and illustrated by Christopher Wilkey (Schiffer Books ISBN: 9780764339059).

The deck comes in a sturdy box with a magnetic closure and ribbon pull. I really like this as it keeps the deck in pristine condition and it is easy to open. The box is really well constructed. Normally, I throw away the boxes - but Schiffer produces solid boxes that are built to last.

The cards are also well made. They are the standard size and made on very strong card stock. The finish is glossy, making them easy as pie to shuffle. This deck will stand up to years of heavy use.

There are 78 cards with both Major and Minors represented. Although the deck is loosely based on the Rider Waite, there is nothing standard here. For starters, all of the Majors have been renamed. The Fool becomes Beginning; Strenth is now Fortitude, Death is Transition and the Devil has been renamed Materialism. (This has been done in other decks as well. It still fits in with the Rider Waite tradition.)

The Minors are now based on the Elements: Water, Fire, Earth and Air instead of Cups, Wands, Pentacles and Swords. (This is not a huge issue as most tarot readers are aware of the elementals anyhow.) Courts have been changed to Child, Youth, Mother and Father. None of this will present a problem when reading with these cards. I have found them to read as well as any other RWS style deck.

The images are contemporary which will delight many readers. The art is colorful and well done although some of the images are a wee bit sloppy in my opinion. Although I think the artist is talented, aesthetically, this deck wasn't my cup of tea. That being said, most people will find the images easy to relate to and beginners will be captivated by the interpretations they can glean from these cards.

Today's Journey Tarot comes with an attractive little book of interpretations for each card (sadly, there are no reversals). The authors also include a "7 Card Merkaba Spread" which worked surprisingly well. I've gotten some good results from using that spread - not just with this deck but with others as well.

In case you are curious about the Merkaba, it is pictured on the back of the cards. The authors state that it "is a spirit body of light. It is our vehicle to expanding dimensions." This Merkaba symbol is sprinkled frequently throughout the deck.

I chose one card to represent how this deck will work. I chose 4 of Water. The interpretation: "this card represents missed opportunities. Open your eyes and look around. What you seek is already there. Do not close yourself off to the world around you." I believe that this is suggesting I keep an open mind about the deck. There are opportunities for wisdom here and although some of the art may not be to my liking, perhaps if I look beyond that, I may be surprised at the guidance offered.

I would recommend this deck to anyone who is ready for a modern and fresh approach to the same old same old tarot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely love this deck July 17 2014
By John Boen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards
Absolutely love this deck! I'm somewhat new to the tarot, I've been reading less than six months. I like Rider Waite and Crowley's Thoth deck but wanted something that spoke my language: straight to the point with art that I can relate to. You don't have to go back and forth looking up card meanings while you're trying to do a reading. The pictures tell you exactly what you need to know. These cards are heavy duty and the storage box could withstand an atomic blast, but I toss them sans box into my cargo pants pocket confident they can withstand the journey. I'm so relieved to have finally found a modern deck without any funny business!

2.0 out of 5 stars Felt like a rough draft. March 12 2013
By Yukio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
I felt that this deck had artwork from a graduate student rather them something professional. The colors on the cards in a lot of cases felt 'blotchy' and rough. The high preistess is NOI a tarot reader, but something for more profound and deeper then this cheesy representation. The reworking of 'judgement' in 'awarenes' is only a partial interpeation and does not do the concept fairly. I kinda liked the way they redid the devil card. The court cards were well thought out and preseted well. I would have been careful coloring the card edges to represent what I thought were 'water', 'air' cards, etc. That can be seen as heavy handed. Otherwise if you like the artwork on these cards, I think it is a good deck for reading for yourself or someone else.
