What a joy Dawn Brunke's Animal Wisdom Tarot deck is! I looked through each card one at a time before playing with this deck, and I was charmed and delighted to see each of the four suits (Branches, Shells, Fossils, Feathers) has four regal cards: Seer, Seeker, Nurturer, Guardian. The bright water-color illustrations are perfectly suited to expressing each animal's character, with just enough surrounding detail to provide an immediate intuitive sense as to what the card represents. I love the packaging of this deck! The box the cards and mini-book come in is well-constructed to protect book and deck, and looks beautiful sitting on a book shelf. The 96 page mini-book's card-to-a-page format gives necessary information quickly, and the color-coded tops of the pages make it easy to quickly look up any card in the four suits or major arcana. These cards are not just beautiful, but they also convey deep information with a sense of animal wisdom not found in other decks. Animal lovers will appreciate the way such a wide variety of animals are represented in this gorgeous deck, including sea turtles, leopards, bats, pigs, bluejays, jellyfish, whales, bisons, loons, manatee, rabbits, honeybees and so many more. The Animal Wisdom Tarot deck is excellent for experienced and beginner tarot readers. I give it my highest recommendation!
I first want to say the packaging of the cards is well done. Then the book that come with it is also done very well. In the book there is a colored picture of the card and then it tells you what the card is in the traditional decks like for example Nine of Branches in this deck is Nine of Wands in the regular Ryder/White deck. then it tells you the element of the card like this one is Fire. Next comes the short meaning of the card almost like key words to describe the meaning of the card and lastly below that is a fuller meaning to read with a short message that the card can relay. ON the top of the pages is a color coding so you can find the suit of cards faster, Pale purple is the major acrana, Reddish orange is the wands/branches suit, Pale blue is the cups/shells, pale green is pentacles/fossils, Yellow is swords/feathers. This makes it faster to find what you need to know and that really was a plus to me. What is really good to me was the creator of the deck Dawn Brunnke did her homework. In the beginning of the book she helps you understand what the tarot is and is not. She talks of the elements which I feel is important for a beginner to understand. She helps you understand the differences in the major and minor arcana, the court cards, how numerology plays a part in reading a card, and the four suits. Lastly she gives you some card spreads to practice and a sample of one and how it is read. I feel that this is a really good deck for a beginner and someone who has read cards before. I like the pictures of the animals and the art is so colorful. All in all I like this deck and would give it as gift to others as well.
