4.0 out of 5 stars
Great Work!, Sept. 13 2000
When I ordered this deck I wasn't sure if I would like it. I saw some cards in a website but I had doubt about the idea of mixing tarot and astrology (chinese AND western astrology!!) in individual cards (no associations or any kind of cross reference). Now I can tell you, it works!
Very interesting combination of different knowledges.... This work has 64 cards: 22 cards of the Major Arcana, the aces of the 4 suits from the traditional Minor Arcana (new begginings in different areas), 12 sun signs of the Western Astrology (the cosmic journey we take through life), 12 signs of the Chinese Astrology (emotions, senses, psychic side and spirituality) and, finally, 14 cards which are all associated with the planets and angles in the Western Astrology (influences around us, karma, lesson and so one).
The illustrations seem to be done to a fairy tale book. They are very pleasant and well done. Using his expertise in astrology, Grant give us a simplistic but interesting interpretations based in the astrological houses.
If you are looking a set (book and deck) about tarot this isn't your product but if you would like to know a very innovative oracle here you have a good opportunity to know something different but not less effective.
