Winner of a 2006 Coalition of Visionary Resources (COVR) Award

Ever present in art and mythology, animals have made an indelible impression on our psyche. The Animals Divine Tarot can help us reconnect with the natural world and tune into animal energies for a more intuitive, insightful outlook on life.

Gorgeous and graceful, Lisa Hunt's watercolor imagery showcases sacred creatures and deities from a myriad of cultures: Aztec, Incan, Indian, Japanese, African, Native American, Greek, Roman, and others. Bast, the cat-headed goddess of Egypt, proudly fulfills the High Priestess role while the adventurous coyote treads a rocky path as The Fool. Inspiring imagination and contemplation, this soulful tarot deck invites us to recognize our inner creatures and merge with our animal energies.

Never has a tarot deck so appealed to me. Certainly not a wholly conventional deck, it nonetheless is intuitive and readings spring easily from its use. The connection to the natural world of animals is palpable and the goddesses and gods of the major arcana add further layers of meaning. The best part of it, however, is the art. It is simply 'divine.'

The Animals Divine Tarot is a stunning addition to Lisa Hunt's body of work. If you are familiar with the previous best-selling decks she illustrated, The Shapeshifter Tarot and The Celtic Dragon Tarot, then you should be quite excited about the Animals Divine as this kit is all Lisa Hunt. She is the author of the book as well as the painter of the cards. The 78 cards in the deck are true works of art, each watercolor image done in Lisa's signature ethereal style. If you were impressed with the art from her previous decks, then this imagery will blow you away. First impressions: When I received my copy, I excitedly tore it out of the mailer and gazed at the packaging. The artwork on the box is subtle and tasteful and will look great on my shelf. Inside, the book and cards were neatly packed and I was pleasantly surprised at the inclusion of an organdy bag. Stunning art on the cards aside, they are sturdy, feel comfortable in the hand and shuffle well. There is a definite positive energy to them. I have shuffled through them many times and every card is beautiful. Some of my favorites are Kutkinnaku (Knight of Swords), Ganesha (The High Priest), Cerridwen (The Magician), Seal (Ace of Cups), Firefly (Ace of Wands), All Animals (The Wheel), Gaia (The World), Thunderbirds (The Tower) and Rabbit (Ten of Pentacles). The major arcana and the court cards are represented by a goddess/god from world mythologies and their corresponding animal. When it comes to the suits, pentacles are earth, cups are water, wands are fire and swords are air. Each of these cards showcase an animal that best fits that element. The cardbacks are classy with a neat looking Animals Divine logo triskellion in the center, printed in metallic gold ink. At first glance, the book has a quality appearance and seems well written. After the foreword by tarot artist/ author Kris Waldherr, Lisa delves into how connecting with the animal realm can help broaden our understanding the world, our relationships and ourselves. Her explanations for the cards discuss their meaning, symbolism and describe how the animal and/or goddess/god represented apply to that specific card. There are accompanying illustrations of the cards with each description, which I find extremely useful as a reference tool. Lisa finishes the book with insightful meditations using the cards, as well as sample spreads designed specifically for this deck. I would, without hesitation, recommend the Animals Divine Tarot kit for any practitioner of tarot or a collector of quality decks. This sensational kit is a must have!
