Why, thank you, darling.

The next time you want de-enabling, I will try really really hard. (It is NOT my greatest talent. Unless you were thinking of the Charmed )

True, I was thinking of it more as a preventative measure for the future safety of our wallets.
Then again I should probably just stay clear of the "Tarot Decks" forum altogether. *lol*

~giggles~ shouldn't we all. So perhaps I will leave the "Tarot Decks" forum for now and go to Tarot Garden *ROFLMAO*

Gregory, I am pretty much lost cause once I really want a deck, but perhaps in the future I will let you practice on me

Agreed on all counts. The Llewellyn is a "pretty" deck that follows the RWS closely, at least in the minors. But the majors and minors are done in a different art style, which is a bit bothersome. And as QofP noted, the title font on the cards is difficult to read.

To me, it's a pretty RWS clone with almost fantasy-art styled majors. It's all together okay, but not apt to win my vote for deck of the year.

I'm thinking of getting the Celestial set. I've studied Astrology for awhile and love Greek mythology and like the idea that this deck combines both. Anyway have it and hate it that could help me save my money???
Thanks

I don't have it, but I can make a couple of points about it ...

First, the artwork may be a little washed-out for some people.

Second, so many different Tarot artists/designers/writers have their own system for reconciling astrology and particular cards. Because astrology is so integral to this deck, if you don't agree with this particular system it will probably make it unworkable for you.
