I love the art of the talented Kris Waldherr, especially her Book of Goddesses that this deck is based upon. This is a wonderful Tarot deck that bases its symbolism on the Rider-Waite deck but it has transformed the symbols into female, Goddess centered mythos. The artwork is very beautiful, detailed and evocative. The cards are larger than a standard deck but it seemed that my hands just got used to the size after a while. The Major Arcana cards each feature a different goddess and include this line-up: Tara, Isis, Sarasvati, Estsanatlehi, Freyja, Juno, Venus, Rhiannon, Athena, Chang O, Lakshmi, Oya, Kuan Yin, Ukemochi, Yemana, Nyai Loro Kidul, The Wawalak, Inanna, Diana, The Zorya, Gwenhwyfar, and Gaia. As you can see, the deck introduces many of the less familiar goddesses. The small paper pamphlet that accompanies the deck offers a sampling of their lore. A helpful workbook is available separately. The Minor Arcana is divided up into four different cultural stories each corresponding with one of the four elements, water, air, earth and fire. Each card except for the court cards shows a woman as she undergoes the journey symbolized by the suit. The suit of Cups is the Path of Venus, Staves is Freyja, Swords is Isis, and Pentacles is Lakshmi. The court cards show the querant's psyche in different times and areas of life and can also be used to represent different people.
I think the deck is very user friendly and I enjoy its different focus. So many women seek out Tarot readings to help them work through and understand the influence of the men in their lives upon their lives. This deck is so useful for keeping querants focused on their own issues and their own well-being.

The Goddess Tarot was my chosen deck when I first started out with the tarot. Its energy and imagery is gentle, soft, and lovely. There is no nudity and no 'scary' pictures.
As a beginner, cards such as the death card and the tower card were particularly disturbing to me, so to replace the images with pictures of great goddesses was the only way I could feel comfortable working with the tarot.
I've outgrown this deck for general purposes, but whenever I need guidance I find myself returning to this deck. This deck is more spiritual than any other deck out there and very gentle. It's really a very beautiful deck.
The reason I don't use this deck all the time anymore is that the imagery of the tarot is really what speaks to me when I do readings. The major arcana in this Goddess deck consists of goddesses, thus much of the imagery is hard for me to delve into and get a good 'vibe' from without spending hours researching and working with each goddess. Also, I grew less afraid of the scarier images, and once I put that fear aside, the traditional tarot blossomed since I wasn't hesitant to handle it anymore.
The Goddess Tarot is a beautiful deck. It's feminine in the best sense of the word. It's client friendly, children friendly, and beginner friendly with its gentle images. Sometimes when doing readings face to face with a querent, I'll pull out the Goddess Tarot deck with more jittery persons. There are some people that jump out of their chair when they see the death, tower, or devil card. It sounds and looks much gentler in this deck. Instead of Death you have Transformation. Instead of the Devil you have Temptation.
It's really a deck that anybody can benefit from, even if it's just to appreciate its asthetic beauty.

I have been drooling over this deck for a long time, and I finally got my hands on it! Often a deck is disappointing after the anticipation has ended, but I haven't changed my mind about the Goddess Tarot.
The Majors have, for the most part, the standard meanings, though each figure is replaced by a Goddess who represents the concept of the card. For example, the Hierophant becomes "Tradition" and is represented by Juno, and the High Priestess is "Wisdom", and features Sarasvati. They are lovely art-wise, and my only complaint is that they tend to sugarcoat a few of the darker cards. But then, I gripe about every deck in which Death is called something other than Death. Waldherr calls it Transformation. It's a peeve of mine, but the meaning is the same, and the Goddess pictured, Ukemochi, works well--she was killed, and food plants sprouted forth from her body. Life from death. It's a slightly Pollyanna-ish interpretation of the card, but it's OK.
I've heard people griping about the Minors on various web sites, but I personally like these. They are mostly re-paintings of the Pamela Smith cards, which means they're easy to learn and interpret. Their beauty stirs the imagination and really involves your emotions in the reading, and their gentle colors are comforting.
All in all, one of my favorite decks.

I've been using the Daughters of the Moon tarot deck for the past several years, and was looking for another woman-centric deck. I didn't like the drab colors and sketchy artwork of the Motherpeace deck, so that was out. Luckily, a friend of mine alerted me to this deck, and I instantly fell in love. The artwork is stunning and evocative. There's no doubt what each card means. And it is crammed with Goddesses from all over the world, so despite my many years of Dianic reading, the Major Arcana were still a learning experience for me. I really feel like this is the deck that will get me to set aside Daughters of the Moon. DoM is vibrant and powerful, but the Goddess Tarot feels more grown up, which is exactly what I need right now. If you love the artwork on this deck, go to the artist's Web site--she sells postcards, prints, and t-shirts with her Goddess art.
