Publisher Review:My friend and colleague, Riccardo Minetti, an editor at Lo Scarabeo, once remarked that any good Tarot deck review begins with a study of that deck. He is right. It is tempting and easy to write a review about how you like or don't like a deck. A review should give an opinion, yes? Well, yes and no. I believe that the reviewer first should understand what the deck designer intended. The opinions that follow should then be about the aim itself (Was it a good idea? Is it useful? Does it explore new paths?) and to what extent the deck achieved that aim.

So I attempted my study of theCircle of Life Tarot. It was not the first time. Months ago, intrigued with the art and the concept, I played with the cards and soon put them away in frustration. I volunteered to write this review, thinking that would force me to succeed in figuring it out. I assumed the weakness to be mine. And perhaps it still is. For some reason, I am not ready to dismiss this deck even though I have to admit: I don't get it. In a way, this is, therefore, less of a review and more of a confession. . . . read more.

I certainly understand the complaints about the little white book for this deck -- I threw mine away immediately! It doesn't do this FEAST for the eyes justice in any event! I NEVER use the booklet that comes w/the cards anyway -- I learned the basics w/Joan Bunning's Learning the Tarot & by (WOW!) the Tarot School -- so once you have the esoteric basics -- it doesn't really matter what deck you use. However, each deck does speak it's own language with unique vocabulary that adds to or modifies the basic esoteric attributions/meanings. And the language this deck speaks (to me) is strong, beautiful, fierce and lyrical.

These cards are just plain DELIGHTFUL to look at -- the backs of the cards have a delicate, not-too-busy filagree Mandala (one of the more beautiful backs I've seen); and the characters on the cards have a very elemental feel to them -- as in I believe the characters are Elementals, literally. The artwork brings a very rich and royal-feeling dignity to the Elementals as well -- and can evoke an incredibly BROAD emotional range.

I LOVE the roundness of the cards -- I often like to stare out the window & shuffle/mix cards to see what falls out -- but find the rectangular decks seem to stay together more. With these it's really sweet -- often a card (or two) will roll directly to my feet or into my lap like a special delivery! I find them VERY easy to handle -- to shuffle or mix -- MUCH more comfortable than ANY rectangular deck with the possible exception of the Osho Zen Tarot.

If you're looking for an exotic and beautiful deck with strong ties to the Earth/Elements I think you'll VERY MUCH like this magical deck!

One caveat: probably better to learn the basics with a more traditional deck like the Radiant Waite; Diamond Tarot; or Morgan Greer; but this is the most appealing round deck I've seen -- the art alone is worth the price!

Circle of Life Tarot
Deck review by Hope Ballard

The Circle of Life Tarot is a round 78 card Tarot Deck by Maria Distefano (Lo Scarabeo)

I've always wanted a round tarot deck so when I heard about Circle of Life Tarot I jumped to get it and I did not do my homework first. Oops.

When the deck arrived I was surprised by the large size of the cards (4.5 x 4.5) and how awkward they felt in my hands. When stacked the cards measure a little over an inch tall so not only is the deck round but also bulky. As an overhand shuffler the cards slipped easily from my fingers and rolled willy nilly across the room. Even after much practice I still have to shuffle very carefully to prevent "jumpers."

The cards are printed on thin flexible card stock with a matte finish and have white borders. The languages written in the border on the cards are English, Italian, Spanish, French and German with Roman Numerals on the Major Arcana and written numbers on the suit cards. The card backs are a soft yellow color with a Celtic style knotted pattern throughout. You can purchase this deck with its Little White Book (LWB) or you can purchase the deluxe addition that includes a pretty velvet bag. Velvet picks up cat hair so I opted out of the deluxe addition.

The Majors are numbered 0-21 with 0 being the Fool, 8 for Justice, and 11 for Strength. The suits are titled Swords, Pentacles, Chalices, and Wands. The Court cards consist of Knaves, Knights, Queens and Kings.
The pip cards are fully illustrated although there is an odd lack of consistency throughout the deck. Some cards have very distinct bold scenes that fill the card (Knave of Wands) while others have simple pictures centered on the card (5 of Cups). While most cards are clear and distinct (6 of Wands), other cards such as the Tower are hazy and it took a while for my eye to distinguish the picture. Many cards are illustrated with rich hues of browns, reds, greens, and blues while other cards are very sparse and almost monochromatic. The images on the cards are thought provoking, for instance the Emperor is a woman; there is an infant in an egg with a baby bird, and several of the characters in the cards are either smoking from a hookah or blowing on very strange horns (3 of cups & Judgment)!

Although there are many elements of this deck that are Rider Waite style there are just as many that are not; this deck is not a Rider Waite clone. It would be good to have a working knowledge of elemental dignities since many of the cards will not reverse due to the circular nature of many of the pictures. An intuitive reader will be able to read with this deck however those who rely heavily on set meanings, or traditional Rider Waite meanings may well have difficulty.

For instance the 8 of Wands card shows a woman walking through the woods, she carries a dagger in her right hand and a man's head cradled in her left! The Little White Book written in English, Italian, Spanish, French, and German by Bepi Vigna and translated by Studio RGE offers little help as it states that the meaning of the 8 of Wands is - The best future is that one faced together with others. Thus I began to understand the dichotomy of this deck! The introduction in the Little White Book discusses that the "concave side of curves evokes feminine nature and reminds man of the nurturing protection of the mother's womb." Yet the LWB itself reads like Sun Tzu's Art of War with meanings that more often than not have no connection with the images on the cards!

For instance in the LWB the card meaning for the 9 of Pentacles is -In any great undertaking, madness always plays a minor role. If madness plays a major role, the undertaking is bound to fail. And the meaning for the 9 of Swords is - Sometimes enemies appear to be more threatening and powerful, but in reality it is our fear that makes them so.

Before you toss the LWB, you may want to check out the 24 card spread called the Divining Method. I didn't like it, but I adapted it a little and I think with the adaptations it could prove useful; time will tell.

I used this deck in several readings for family and friends and was again surprised at the difference the shape of the cards made in the look of the spread and how much room the cards took up on a table. This deck definitely has curb appeal, friends and family gave the deck a thumb up, and I was pleased with the way my readings turned out.

If I knew then what I know now about this deck, I would still purchase it as it is very interesting and the round shape does force my mind to think differently about the cards but I wouldn't waste my time reading the LWB!

I got this deck a few years ago from a psychic in the area and due to some unfortunate events involving cats and water they were ruined. I love these because they are beautiful and very good for beginner tarot readers! These came quick and I am definitely keeping this deck away from my cats!

Beautiful pictures. I love their size. Some of the cards are a little hard to interpret, but that shouldn't stop you from buying this lovely deck.
