REVIEW: TAROT OF THE DIVINE

Updated: Apr 1

boxing, First Impressions & Review

I have been obsessed with this deck for years! I almost lost hope as to when this deck will be finished. 


WHAT I LIKE: 1. THE ARTWORK & CARD STOCK. Artwork is byYoshi Yoshitani. 'Yoshi Yoshitani infuses Tarot of the Divine with worldly insight and an intriguing selection of fables and folktales from cultures across the globe.' Philippine folklore has been included too. See title image above. Cardstock is thick with matte-linen finish.

The deck has a combination of animal and human imagery. Also, if you noticed, the 'scary' cards are not scary at all. Or maybe it's just me?


You get a sturdy box, the guidebook and the deck.

No gilded edges. Deck is thick.


2. GUIDEBOOK 44-page fully illustrated guidebook that describes each fable of each card with tarot card meanings.

As per Wikipedia, Bakunawa fell in love with a human girl in one of the native tribes. The head of the tribe found out about their affair and had their house burned to ashes. The'Bakunawa, finding out about this, became immersed in anger and tried to take revenge by eating all the 7 moons. Tu'er Shen is the Chinese Rabbit God.


3. AVAILABILITY

You can buy the deck here or at FullyBooked.  

4. SHIPPING

Received in a month via Post Office with Php 112 tax.


WHAT I HATE:

I spent $43.99 ($19.99 deck + $24.99 shipping) when this was finally launched only to discover that FullyBooked is selling it in a few months for only Php 960. Also, I'm not a fan of big boxes.


SCORE: ★★★

FINAL THOUGHTS:

If you are a sucker for folklores and fables then you should add this deck to your collection. Love the fact that Yoshi did not just draw this deck but also did research about the corresponding stories that would fit each cards. However, I am not entirely sure if it was a thorough research. The Tarot of the Divine deck is recommended for all level tarot readers.

That concludes my review of Tarot of the Divine deck.
