The Spiral Tarot was my second tarot deck. I saw a few sample images online, and fell in love with the beauty of it. One of the problems I came across in learning the Tarot was that many of the decks available have very repetitive minor arcana cards. You might as well use a regular deck of playing cards. This is not so with the Spiral Tarot. Every single card of this deck, especially the Minor Arcana, tells a story. These cards will speak to you. Compare this deck to most and you will see that the artist actually took the time to artistically represent a situation to convey the meaning of the card to you. The colors are beautiful, the art is very well-drawn, meanings easily interpreted through the pictures.

Though there are several decks I really love, this one is now my favorite Tarot deck, as it brings together many elements that are important to me. The deck is lusciously vibrant with rich color. Dark blue and also a lighter blue are predominant colors, carrying the background of the whole deck, which I think gives the entire deck a "Lunar" quality which supports our intuition and Lunar or Moon knowledge and abilities. Then too, Carl Jung knew the importance of bright color, how it attracts the unconscious, and I believe that the ability to work intuitively with a deck is enhanced when it has both rich colors and appropriate symbolic depth. The Major Arcana cards on this deck show the Kabbalah correspondences, depicting the Hebrew letters corresponding to the trumps, as well as depicting the particular Sephiroth on the Tree of Life. I have always felt disappointed with the Rider Waite deck, which, though it is hailed for its "correct" hermetic symbolism, to me is far too plain, even banal, in its color. The images of the Spiral Tarot, particularly the trumps but also the Minor Arcana, are more complex, saturated, dreamy and engaging, and I think that helps to feel energetically pulled in towards the cards, when you feel like you wouldn't mind walking right into that scene and being there to fully feel it. The Spiral Tarot sticks close to traditional depictions of the trumps and Minor Arcana, but renders them more compellingly.
