The Faerie Tarot

By Terri C.

This deck includes a paper spreadsheet and 48-page little white book.

Opening the package of this deck was a visual delight.  I felt I was instantly greeted by bright, vibrant colors and whimsical images.  This deck definitely offers a fresh, new look at the Tarot.

The four seasons are the source of inspiration with Wands symbolizing Autumn, Swords symbolizing Winter, Cups symbolizing Spring and Pentacles symbolizing Summer.

The deck size is a bit shorter and wider than a standard decks, measuring 3.5” x 4.75”,  The card stock is a bit stiff, with glossy lamination.  It has wide borders with each being unique, from flowers, shooting stars, hearts, dragons, to many, many more.  The card backs are reversible and are done in soft shades of blue and gold.  Strength is numbered 8 and Justice is numbered 11.  

The deck is also packaged with a 17” x 20” Celtic Cross Spreadsheet.  The little white book contains 3, 4 and 5 card spreads.

Nathalie prefers to use the majors only, in the upright position, for her personal readings.  She suggests that if you want precise details, to add the minors in as follows: for professional questions add only the Wands, for emotional matters add only the Cups,  for material issues add only the Pentacles,  and for daily concerns such as health, studies, or activities add only the Swords.

This deck contains no nudity and would make a great deck for the young or young at heart.  It would also be a fine choice for those looking for something a little more non-traditional.

Nathalie has a unique style of dramatic, medieval and heroic fantasy art.  She uses gouche, acrylic and ink.  The Faerie Tarot is her third deck.

Nathalie lives in Lille, France with her husband, two daughters, and a menagerie of animals.
