The Hanson-Roberts Tarot based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.
This is a stunning deck that focuses on the traditional Rider-Waite symbolism. Though the cards are a standard size, the images stand out starkly in beautiful colors and emotion. Personally, I feel this more emotional rendition helps the reader see more of the meaning right off the bat when looking at the cards. My favorite which I feel shows the overall theme of this deck is the Strength card: a beautiful serene woman caresses the massive head of a male lion in a tender embrace. This is my favorite deck and I hope it never disappears amidst all the fashionable, come-and-go designs and themes. I might love vampires and steampunk in my novels, but in the tarot, I want the truth and the purity of it's original symbols and precious archetypes.
The HANSON-ROBERTS tarot deck is by far my favorite of all the traditional tarot decks, because it has a "lightness of being," fairy-like or angelic quality to it, while at the same time maintaining the integrity of the original Tarot symbols. People (especially children and psychic/sensitives) will likely find themselves instantly attracted to this deck because of the feeling of purity its illustrations are imbued with. Colorful and cartoonlike, each card's illustration still manages to convey even the most somber of moods, such as the lifeless solemnity of the knight's effigy resting atop a marble tomb on the Four of Swords. Other cards, such as Temperence and The Star shine with such radiance that one feels uplifted just to gaze upon their beauty. This is a Tarot deck to cherish forever as both a work of art and a divination tool to share with others -- especially those with sensitive natures.
Ilearned to read tarot using the Hanson Roberts deck. Whenever I need new cards I still get them. I tried a couple of different decks and just didn't get the same responsiveness. They are simply and beautifully drawn... they 'speak' to me.
I am a psychic reader in Orlando, Florida and I use this deck to do my readings. This is wonderful and It gives excellent results.
