REVIEW: TAROT OF THE DIVINE
Updated: Dec 6, 2020
Unboxing, 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.
Received in a month via Post Office with Php 112 tax.
5. THE INTERVIEW
INTRODUCE YOURSELF: Ace of Coins
Good beginnings. This deck has a lucky energy in it.
WHAT ARE YOUR STRENGTHS? The Emperor
Oddly enough, I thought this deck would be another feminine deck. The Emperor graced us with its presence with pride, fortitude and leadership.
WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITATIONS? The Magician
This deck wants me to discover my untapped potential as I may be either consciously and unconsciously ignoring it.
WHAT CAN I LEARN FROM YOU? Knight of Swords
Action and aggressiveness. The Knight of Swords teaches me to charge instead of waiting for something to happen.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CONNECT WITH YOU? King of Wands
Another masculine card, the best way to connect with the Tarot of the Divine deck is to get the King of Wands to influence me with its strong fiery energy.
OUTCOME OF OUR RELATIONSHIP: Eight of Cups
I probably need to break out of my comfort zone to enjoy this deck. Since each cards possess a fable from around the world, I must connect and discover what makes these stories unique.
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.
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 drew this deck but also did research about the corresponding stories that would fit each cards. The Tarot of the Divine deck is recommended for all level tarot readers.
That concludes my review of Tarot of the Divine deck.
