like the designs, interesting explination to the way you have decided to go with the major acarna. I have a 'Celtic Tarot' deck, I wish the designer had put the same level of thought into them, the more common elements used in the tarot don't really mesh with Celtic beliefs so the major acarna is at odds with the actual beliefs of the celts.

Thanks, I've collected a few tarot decks over the years and I'm a bit annoyed at how little thought has gone into them as well.

Even those people who generate up their own major arcana for a specific belief system seem to just throw the familiar tarot archetypes into a cultural paradigm where they don't fit.

One of my most disappointing tarot decks was the HR Giger deck, beautifully dark images, but most of them don't really fit the arcana they are designed to represent, because the original images were never designed to be used that way.

Thanks for adding me to your watch list.

Yw, an am hearing you on the lack of thought on the design of the major acarna, these designers seem to forget that the major acarna was essentially a storybook from a time when very few could read, but everybody can understand a picture book. well they can when the pictures are of things they can relate too.
