The Haindl Tarot for me comes across as a very mystical, shamanic type deck. Each time you work with a card, you will see another level of richness, another "something" that you did not see or feel before. It is the shamanic quality that I see in this deck that brings across its message for me. The spiritual traditions of many cultures and mythologies are represented here. There is also a deep respect for the feminine, and a sense of respect for and connection to nature. Haindl did this deck in a very special manner -- one that I have not seen done before. He took his own paintings, picking out a part of the painting that represented the energy of the card that he was working with, and overlaid the suits and symbols. The result is stunning in its depth, but it can be taken one step further. Because Haindl used only portions of a painting, he could use a single painting multiple times, with the underlying artwork acting as a bridge to connect the cards.
I highly recommend it to those with at least a minimal Tarot background, those who want to use it for meditation, spiritual growth, ritual, ceremony or personal readings. And yes -- this would be a deck that a collector would want to have!

I've used the Haindl Tarot for years and recently performed over 33 readings at the San Francisco Whole Life Expo using the Haindl Tarot. This deck gives the querent a great deal of answers pertaining to influences around the question. The cards are beautiful, watercolor like, dreamy, and yet powerful in their images. The inclusion of American Indian, Hindu, European and Egyptian influences give the reader the ability to connect with ancient energies. I love reading with this deck and it is one the highly prized decks that I use professionally.
