Major Arcana: Traditional titles, with the exception of: High Priest (Hierophant), The Wheel (Wheel of Fortune), Hanged Woman (Hanged Man), Challenge (The Devil).

The Animals Divine Tarot and ompanion book come packaged in a beautiful yellow-toned box, with the cover opening from the side for easy access. There is a black organdy bag included to act as a home for the cards. The deck is a traditional 78 cards, with two additional cards that carry the templates for the Animal Journey Spread and the Animal Wheel Spread.

The cards themselves are approximately 2 3/4" by 4 5/8", on high quality, glossy cardstock. The backs are a medium yellow, featuring a dark gold mandala within a dark gold circle in the middle of the card. it would not be possible to tell whether the card had been drawn upright or reversed.

The face of the cards show a white border, followed by an inner black border around the scenes themselves. At the top of the card, in black lettering, is the name of the God, Goddess, or animal represented on the card. At the bottom of the card, in black lettering, is the card number (in Roman numerals) and title for the Major Arcana; the card number (written out) and the suit for the Pips (numbered cards); the title and suit for the Court Cards.

The art is a combination of fantasy and reality, drawing from myth and legend. The colors are subdued, with heavy use of greens, blues, yellows and grays. They have a very flowing nature, and carry a great deal of symbolism that may not at first be apparent.

One of my favorite cards in the deck is the Fool, which carries the energy of the Coyote (the Trickster, in Native American lore). Coyote walks a rocky path strewn with entwined roots. The rocks in his path, rather than acting as obstacles, serve to ground him. The six birds flying overhead indicate change and impermanence. Rather than the "soft" Fool that we are familiar with, this Fool carries an edge that makes us wary.

The theme of birds also shows in the Four of Swords. Here we find four swords, standing upright. Above them flies a Hawk, with the sun shining brightly behind him. Around the Hawk's wings we see spirals, representing renewed life. In his talons the Hawk carries a crystal necklace, representing his vision and sense of awareness.

In Animals Divine the Hanged Man has become the Hanged Woman. She is Spider Woman, from Native American lore. Spiderwoman faces forward, reaching out to the spider web (representing the web of live) in front of her. The feather in her hair signifies her ability to expose the truth - a truth that we sometimes do not wish to acknowledge.

The Nine of Pentacles is represented by the Bear. Pictured is a large bear, walking towards us on all four feet. He is walking through a tunnel of spiraling energy representing the four elements - Fire, Water, Air, and Earth. The Bear is a symbol of protection, according to Hunt, but it also has a strong shamanistic and healing connection in Native American mythology.

The Queen of Swords is represented by the Greek Goddess Athena. We see a full moon behind her, with an owl, representing wisdom, perched on a limb over her right shoulder. The tree roots are there to ground us, and the very visible snake that appears to be coming down from her left arm speaks of transformation - of leaving behind what no longer serves us to make room for the new.

I am absolutely fascinated by the Wheel (Wheel of Fortune) in this deck! True to its nature, it carries the energy of "all animals". The wheel is turning, and change is coming. Pictured here is a virtual vortex of animals, with the elements being represented by their individual colors. Birds and butterflies are in the air, and from the water come the aquatic creatures. Animals are our teachers and guides (and also our protectors). By watching how they live their lives, we will receive messages on how to best live our lives.

In her foreword, Waldherr addresses some of the themes that she sees in the Animals Divine Tarot. A predominate theme is that of integrating our lives with those of the animal kingdom, in a peaceful manner. Waldherr also notes that this deck can serve to help elevate humanities collective consciousness. She notes how the Celtic Dragon and Shapeshifter decks were in many ways necessary precursors to Animals Divine.

I am very attracted to this deck, and learn something new every time that I use it. If you are interested in mythology, in connections with the natural world, or in deepening your connections with your animal guides and mentors, then this is an excellent deck for you.
