    Some lovely person bought me a copy of Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven's Prophecy Tarot deck off my wishlist While most decks come with a little pamphlet that fits inside the card box with a bare bones explanation of each card usually one sentence or less this deck comes with a proper instruction book although the result is that the box does not really fit the deck of cards I'll need to find something to wrap them in The instruction book is called Illuminating the Prophecy and it's shorter than my main tarot instructional book but it's still than enough to get a beginner started and it's an excellent supplement to other materials Stiefvater explains the artistic choices she's made for this deck in particular which makes it easier to remember the card meanings when using it to do readings It's also a very good explanation of tarot in general so it should be useful to use for other decks if you have other decks that come with useless tiny pamphlets like most of them Each card is given a couple of keywords then a page or two of explanation on how it fits into the greater patterns in the deck what it can mean in different parts of a reading how Stiefvater feels about the card personally and anything else that she deems highly relevant The personal stuff is uite useful tarot readings are very personal and how one person reads something might not uite fit in the same way with how someone else reads it based on a reader or uerent's lifepersonalityrelationship to the concepts represented by the card The booklet also has much of Stiefvater's characteristic voice if not uite as nutty as the one she uses on Tumblr so it is uite entertaining as well as informativeI've started entering some of the notes from this book into my own tarot notebook which is a jumble of things I've learned from different sources but overall draws heavily on Tarot Plain and Simple which has been my main instructional for years I lost most of the notes I had from when I first started reading tarot so now I only use the things I remembered from back then which was than a dozen years ago so that's not a huge amount and it's not nearly enough to do readings from memory with I think I'm going to end up incorporating a lot of what Stiefvater says into the way I read; I think it's a bit on my wavelength than some of the tone of the other book Overall A deck A instructional booklet would occult with again Also the ueen of Pentacles card is so preeetty Originally posted at

    The deck is absolutely gorgeous I also really like Maggie's take on the cards and descriptions throughout the book It makes it easy for a beginner to give a couple different kinds of readings

    nicethe rating is mostly for the gorgeous gorgeous illustrations on the cards


  7. says:

    The Raven's Prophecy is a beautiful tarot deck with striking images You do not have to be a fan of Stiefvater's fiction to enjoy these images They are according to her based on Welsh symbolism and the book she's written fits the images into the traditional RWS tradition with her own uniue twists I love reading with this deck It's a bit snarky but very clear The changes from the RWS provide some new and interesting ways of looking at problems My biggest issue is that the card stock is uite flimsy But otherwise this is a brilliant deck with gorgeous art


  8. says:

    A good introduction for beginners
