Additional Product Images:

The scenes on each card are reminiscent of medieval stained glass associated with majestic cathedrals. Each card touches the subconscious in a profound way, and the spiritual and inspirational imagery brings the viewer to a higher level of consciousness. The wardrobes of the figures are resplendent in color and historic detail, and the scene on each card is luminous. The cards include symbols that Eileen Connolly has held in her consciousness for many years, yet the scenes convey simple, clear messages. Connolly Tarot presents gentler interpretations of Rider-Waite Tarot, with Death replaced by Transition, and the Devil replaced by Materialism. The 79-card deck includes a Gateway to Meditation Card.

PETER PAUL CONNOLLY has developed a unique artistic style using colored pencil as his medium. This style is reflected in the brilliant colors and detail seen in the Connolly Tarot deck. In a tireless effort of over eighteen months, Peter painstakingly constructed each card under the loving supervision of the author. Using this method along with hours of meticulous research he was able to bring to life the distinct personality within each symbol. Peter currently resides in North Carolina. His work can be seen in local galleries and has been displayed in Williamsburg and on the West Coast. He has illustrated novelty and gift cards, calendars, and books, and he does privately commissioned works.

  • WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT CONNOLLY TAROT:

    Aside from the positive viewpoint of the cards the colors are beautiful and are great for meditation. In fact, there is an extra card showing a doorway called the doorway to meditation. For anyone with a lively colorful and positive outlook then I think these cards will speak to you. They are not too far different from the standard packs, that a beginner wouldn't be able to decipher them yet they are easier to interpret generally as the images are easier to relate to. I've only had the pack 2 days and I am in love with it and feel that this will remain one of my favorites.

    -- Heather Wagstaff, on Aeclectic Tarot


    Connolly has made major changes to the symbolism of this deck, though she did seem to try to convey the Waite-Smith or "Traditional" meanings in her deck. If you can read with the Waite-Smith deck, you should have little difficulty reading with this one. The suit of Swords has been toned down. There is no bloodshed or violence to women depicted anywhere in this deck. The art is very good. The colors are bright and vibrant and there is lots of detail.

    -- Michele Jackson, on Tarot Passages


    The Connolly Tarot, created by mom Eileen Connolly and illustrated by son Peter Paul Connolly is a wonderful visually pleasing deck, reminiscent of medieval stained glass often associated with majestic cathedrals found all over Europe.

    Peter Connolly has created stunning imagery using colored pencils and rich colors, making this a truly stunning deck. The images follow the Rider Waite symbolism and are easy to follow, making it a great deck for beginners and intermediate readers and has a great positive feel to it. The cards are laminated lightly and the design on the backs makes it able to be read upright or reversed.

    The Minor Arcana are just as beautiful and detailed as the Majors and each have Roman numerals at the top of each card. There are a lot of chubby little cherubs in this deck, which adds a sense of charm and spirituality that runs through both Major and Minor Arcana. I just love the colors, they are striking and the symbolism is gentle and easy to interpret. This would be a great deck for any collection.
