Wonderful art but confusing pips April 23 2009
By Donovan Day - Published on
Format: Cards
The Universal Wirth deck is beautifully colored with a modern touch to the illustrations we all know from the original Oswald Wirth Tarot. The Hermit is a highlight for me along with the Emperor. great faces with emotion and figures that are both lifelike and comic-book at the same time. This deck has a great color scheme and the art flows wonderfully. Every card fits in with the whole.
The big problem for me is a simple one. I'm so used to seeing Swords as air and Cups as water, so this deck is hard for me to read with since they are reversed here. I understand the history of such interpretation, but can't get past the fact that it's the opposite of the way I view the cards. For instance most cups in this deck have a butterfly motif on the Cup itself and butterflies and birds and nice blue skies as a focal point. The Sword cards contain waves, pools, the ocean, fish, lobsters etc. You get my point.
All in all, this is one of the more beautiful decks out there. If you are looking for fantastic art and a modern take on a historical deck, then by all means pick it up. However, if you are like me and typically interpret the minor arcana as Wands/fire, Pentacles/earth, Cups/water, Swords/air, and you think it may be difficult to get around this in a reading, think again before you buy.

Too confusing for a beginner... or expert! May 28 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on

Confusion is an understatement...

From my blog: "The Chalices/Cups suit, which SHOULD be Water, have been confused for Air (as you'd already guessed), with the theme being butterflies (I'm not kidding) throughout, sprinkled with eagles. The Coins are treated properly as earth, and the Wands I like the best. Not only are the Wands almost always shown on fire (like they should), but on the 3 of wands you get a head shot of what is apparently the owner's Labrador Retriever. I wish I was kidding. I'd love to hear from anyone regarding how they can possibly divinate with a straight face using this deck..."

Oh, and for those of you saying that "It's no problem switching them around, as this is in the style of some Spanish school of thought", I would point out that the LWB gave all traditional interpretations.

I'll try to add pictures to the product page so you can see what I mean... It is NOT a slight difference.

Oh, and since it's Lo Scarebo the paper is of fair/poor quality. Not to worry, this deck won't get worn out.

I like this deck. It is a good alternative to the Oswald Wirth deck especially if you have been accused in the past of not playing with a full deck.
More seriously, the colors and artwork are great. The imagery is evocative.Some previous knowledge of tarot would be useful, so it might not be a newbe deck.
I am pleased to have this deck in my collection along with many of LoScarabeo's fine decks.

beautiful April 10 2013

this deck is simply beautiful, confusing but fresh ideas and meaning. it goes along with contemplative tarot. again the only complain is the booklets. lo scarabeo decks are great but when it comes to the booklets aghhh hate it. i mean few little pages for such a deep tarot? anyway the deck is amazing evrn though they havd the sword as emotion and cups as mental. still love it, its fresh idea and worth to give it a thought.

The pictures speak Feb. 23 2011

I am presently immersed in studying how to read the Tarot cards, and also trying to develop my ESP to help. This deck is the one I felt drawn to, although I purchased about ten different Tarot decks. I am still trying to learn the techniques that will work for me. The artwork is beautiful in this deck.
