  1. The most stunning angel tarot deck I’ve ever come across! I had been waiting forever for an Angel oracle deck that was made to mirror the traditional Tarot, but without all of the negativity and ego based properties that some tend to associate with the Tarot. This is one of the most alluring and poetic Tarot decks I’ve ever seen. From the moment I opened the package I felt a rush of incredible uplifting energy flow through me. Each card is very powerful and the artwork and illustrations are detailed and magical. This is one of the most stunning and impressive Tarot decks I’ve come across.There are 78 cards just as you would find in the traditional Tarot, but this deck only uses gentle words and images. Some words have been changed for certain cards that would exist in a regular Tarot. You won’t find the “Devil” card in this deck, but an alternative name, “Ego”. There is also no “Tower” card which is usually a frightening image in the traditional Tarot, but in this deck is more appropriately titled for me, “Life Experience”.The Major Arcana exists in the deck, but each card corresponds to a specific Archangel. For example:Justice – Archangel RaguelThe Sun – Archangel UrielThe Hermit – Archangel RazielThe Wheel – Archangel MichaelThe Chariot – Archangel MetatronLife Experience – Archangel ChamuelStrength – Archangel AzraelThe Dreamer – Archangel MetatronUnity – Archangel SandalphonRenewal – Archangel JeremialAwakening – Archangel GabrielThe Lovers – Archangel RaphaelThe World – Archangel MichaelThe Star – Archangel JophielBalance – Archangel ZadkielEgo – Archangel JophielThe High Priestess – Archangel HanielThe Magician – Archangel RazielThe Empress – Archangel GabrielThe Emperor – Archangel MichaelRelease – Archangel AzraelIt was interesting to find that each of the Major Arcana cards correlated perfectly to a specific Archangel and that Archangels speciality. What I loved as well was that each of the Four Elements in the Minor Arcana also corresponded to something magical and angelic. There is nothing harsh about this deck.In a traditional Tarot you would have the Fire Wand set and in this deck the cards are labeled as “Six of Fire”, “Seven of Fire” and so forth. The beautiful artwork for this element is of Dragons. Picture the “fire” breathing image of a Dragon as well as the Chinese Astrology depiction of the Dragon behavior. Fire is action oriented. (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)As for the Sword set in a traditional Tarot which would be the element of ‘air’, this deck is made up of magical Unicorns. “Five of Air”, “Six of Air” etc. Imagine a Unicorns horn as a symbol of the Sword. Unicorns are airy and whimsical just like the element of Air which also represents thought and mental processes. (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)The Pentacles reside in the Earth element in a traditional Tarot, but in this deck the images are of Fairies in Garden like atmospheres, “Three of Earth”, “Four of Earth”. etc. In the Tarot deck the Pentacle cards are associated with the physical and tangible, so it’s no surprise the image of the Elementals also known as Fairies are used. Fairies are outside in nature and assist us with concrete needs such as finances, home and sometimes obtaining love. (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)Water is the most beautiful section of the deck using Mermaids as the star of this part within the set. In a traditional Tarot it would be known as “Cups/Water”. “Seven of Water”, “Eight of Water” etc. The visions of the Mermaids in blue sparkling water associate with emotions, feeling and needs. The Mermaids dive into the depths of water or in this case assists us with getting to the core of an issue internally in order to manifest our desires. (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)Each set within this set of cards have different colors that correlate with each set. You can easily pull them out within the deck. The Water set has a Blue border, Earth has Green, Air has Royal Blue, Fire has Burgundy and the Major Arcana is Royal Purple.If you’re new to the Tarot, but have had difficulty in learning the way it works, this is a great deck to use. I’ve always found some of the Tarot decks to be difficult to gravitate towards and learn. I did not have that issue with this one. It’s laid out efficiently in the little guidebook that comes along with it. More importantly this deck is also an angel deck to assist you in becoming more familiar with the Angels and Elements that make up the other spiritual planes. This deck is also helpful in getting to know some of the Archangels functions on top of that.The cards in this deck are always accurate for me. I manage to pull the exact cards that are mirroring the situation or feeling I’m having that given day. Sometimes I’ll keep pulling the same card repeatedly to get me to notice an issue or concern…

  2. Great Bridge from Doreen’s Oracle Decks to Tarot “Tarot has touched the lives of countless individuals, giving them peace, comfort, and insight in times of joy as well as in times of challenge. It’s one of the most accurate ways to receive detailed guidance about your future and answers to your questions. Consulting tarot cards is like spending time with a dear wise relative who acknowledges both the shadows and the joys of life.” – From the companion book to the Angel TarotI’m in a unique position to write this review because I not only use Tarot decks, but also oracle decks. I own every Doreen Virtue deck made thus far, and have reviewed over 100 oracle decks. Yet, I’m also a Tarot expert with two Tarot books to my name, various Tarot eBooks and my own Tarot deck-in-progress with my husband (Snowland Tarot)–as well as an international group Tarot blog.Oh, and I also own about 200 Tarot decks, over 250 Tarot books–and have reviewed over 100 Tarot decks, too.I’m stating this information to give you a sense of where I’m coming from, because strict angel oracle users may not touch a Tarot deck with a 20 foot pole because of the (erroneous) bad press Tarot has gotten. On the other hand, hardcore Tarot uses may not touch a Virtue deck with a 200-foot pole–feeling her work is shallow, fluffy and virtually worthless.Well, I’m here to tell you that:1. Tarot isn’t evil or “dangerous” (why Doreen even uses the word “safe deck” to describe Angel Tarot is beyond me).2. These cards have merit as a Tarot deck. In fact, the Angel Tarot surprised me with is ability to speak deeply and accurately.3. Angel Tarot is a perfect bridge between Doreen’s angel oracle decks and the Tarot…especially for those completely new to the latter.The Angel Tarot, like all traditional Tarot decks, contains 78 cards: 22 Major Arcana, 40 Minor Arcana and 16 Court Cards. The Minor Arcana suits are Air (dark blue borders), Fire (burgundy borders), Water (teal borders) and Earth (forest green borders). The Majors have indigo borders, but are, unfortunately, almost the same color as the Air suit.The Major Arcana retains most of the usual card names, except:* The Fool becomes The Dreamer* The Hierophant becomes Unity* The Hanged Man becomes Awakening* Death becomes Release* Temperance becomes Balance* The Devil becomes Ego* The Tower becomes Life ExperienceLest you think that the card renames are too gentle, I can assure you that the authors have captured the essence of traditional Tarot. For example, Life Experience cautions about rapid, inevitable change…or that time is running out. For Ego, the authors warn that there’s an unhealthy focus on material possessions or accumulating more “stuff”, gently pointing out that this behavior likely stems from feeling (and trying to fill) an emotional void.The 133-page companion booklet to the Angel Tarot, co-authored with Radleigh Valentine, is quite good–better than most Little White Books that come with Tarot decks. Because I’ve read (and written!) so much about Tarot, I didn’t expect to discover much new in the book–expecting only trite meanings and the very basics.Yet, the authors pack a lot of great information in the companion book, including situations, meanings, people and keywords associations for the cards. The Court Card meanings are especially well done, with relevant, pointed descriptions and definitions (their designations are Page, Knight, Queen and King).The images of the Angel Tarot cards are vibrant, striking and pretty–akin to the very best artwork from among Doreen’s other decks. However, quite a few cards are also repetitive, which not only doesn’t make sense, but is also a huge disappointment (especially since many Tarot enthusiasts rely on artistic differences to glean intuitive insights from the cards).For example, most of the Water suit cards (usually known as Cups) looks the same: various golden chalices scattered at the bottom of blue, watery depths with translucent merpeople floating around. The Wheel of Fortune and The World feature the EXACT same male figure in both (even the same stance), and he’s also on the card backing.The Air suit cards, represented by unicorns, are also a bit repetitive, showing a bunch of horned creatures in a meadow for several images.However, the images within most of the Angel Tarot are not only beautiful and detailed, but can also be used to cull accurate impressions and messages. To further aid readers, there are helpful key phrases at the bottom of every card. For the Court Cards, there are also keywords at the top, while the Major Arcana depicts card numbers (Justice is 8 and Strength 11 in this deck), as well as the angel related to the card (for example, Archangel Uriel correlates to The Sun, while Archangel Metatron connects to The Chariot)…

  3. Oracle meets Tarot With this tarot deck, Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine bring a positive-only spin to the world of tarot. Steve A. Roberts illustrates this deck with computer enhanced realistic images, loaded with vibrant colors and details that may make you wish the cards were bigger. However, this deck is a mix. On one hand, this deck should be easier for beginners with its key phrases at the bottom. On other, the cards are thick and difficult to shuffle, and sometimes the imagery is confusing.The color on the border surrounding the cards varies. There is ample border to allow enough space for labels on top and key phrases on bottom. However, unlike many other Tarots, the space allowed for the image on the card varies between Major Arcana, Court Cards and Pip Cards; the Major Arcana have the least while the Pip Cards have the most.On the Major Arcana, the border around the image is purple. Each Major Arcana is numbered and labeled at the top. The name of the corresponding archangel is written just below the card name. A few key phrases are written at the bottom. These cards are numbered 0 to 21 starting with The Fool. Justice is 8 while Strength is 11. Some of the cards have been renamed to complement the “positive” theme of this deck:0. The Dreamer – 0. The Fool5. Unity – V. The Hierophant12. Awakening – XII. The Hanged Man13. Release – XIII. Death14. Balance – XIV. Temperance15. Ego – XV. The Devil16. Life Experience – XVI. The Tower20. Renewal – XX. JudgmentSome of these cards repeat the imagery with minor alterations. This is the case of The Fool and Ego which repeat the image of the fool, and The Emperor and The Wheel which repeat the image of Archangel Michael.The Minor Arcana are divided into elements: Fire (wands), Water (cups), Air (swords), and Earth (discs). Each suit of the Minor Arcana is bordered with a different color: Red for Fire, Blue for Water, Indigo for Air, and Green for Earth.Also each suit corresponds to a specific creature: Dragons for Fire, Mermaids for Water, Pegasus and Unicorns for Air, and Fairies for Earth. This is where the imagery is a bit disappointing. While the rendering of archangels in the Major Arcana is very good, the rendering of dragons in the suit of Fire is a bit lacking. Fortunately, other creatures are rendered much better in their respective suits.The Court Cards are labeled at the top as Page, Knight, Queen and King. A few keywords are written below the label, with phrases at the bottom. The Pips are labeled at the top, with phrases at the bottom. The imagery in the Pips always incorporates the suit symbols, but in a few times the symbols are the main focus of attention and the card becomes a decorated pip. However, in many of the Pips you end up using the key phrase for interpretation rather than the image.This kit includes a small Guidebook. The first section addresses the origin of this deck, how to use it and a few layouts. The second section addresses the Major Arcana, with two pages per card including image, a brief description and additional meaning. The last section addresses the Minor Arcana, with one page per pip card including image, a brief description and additional meaning, and one page per court cards including image, situation, people, and additional meaning.In all, your millage may vary. If you like oracle cards from Doreen Virtue, you will enjoy this tarot. However, if you lean toward darker tarots, you may want to stay away from this one. As for tarot collectors, this deck is kind of unique. Just don’t place it toward the top of your list.
