I'm curious...are you referring to the actual color of the images, or the overall outlook of the deck?

As I like the Osho Zen, I wonder which decks you find spiritual. I'd like to have additional spiritual decks.

So was I. I found out too late it wasn't for me. I kept it because I didn't think I'd get back what I ended up paying (38) and I've sold enough decks for losses.

Sun and Moon tarot. Loathesome cardstock. Thoth type key words and RWS pictures *shudder*

One of the cards is faulty and it is going straight back. Yick.

Oh my, here I was thinking I was the only one that felt that way about The Gendron. I too saw some online scans and just had to have it.. got it and wished I hadn't. Nor do I seem to be able to connect with Legacy of the Divine.
The vote on the UKIYOE Tarot is still undecided.

I bought it for the same reason - I really hate it!

You know, I still think about the Gendron and how absolutely dreadful the experience was for me. I think I'm still pissed about it !

And as for the Legacy of the Divine, it sure is beautiful to look at, but that's as far as I go with it. I can't connect with it just like I can't connect to the Gilded. I'll keep them as I do collect decks, so I will just take them out from time to time to look at the artwork.

It's the only deck I've ever burned - I had such a negative reaction to it that I couldn't even pass it on to someone else.
