Reviews

The concept for this 78 card tarot deck was created by Laura Tuan, who has been responsible for numerous other tarots - Tarot Egyptiens, Tarot des Gitans, Le Tarots Mayas - all published by De Vecchi. The art is by Antonella Castelli, and has a similar pastel and line-drawn feel to the Tarot Art Nouveau, her other creation. It's full of realistically drawn flowers, and cutesy fairies who are alternately mischievous, happy, inquisitive, sullen, serene, and wistful. Animals also occasionally feature - hamsters, frogs, insects, snails, and two hairy white creatures in the Chariot card, which I eventually identified (with some help) as hedgehogs.

The Chalices are represented by blue flowers - Lilac (Knight of Chalices), Lavender (Nine of Chalices), and Petunia (Four of Chalices). Pentacles are shown by golden flowers - Buttercup, St John's Wort, Dandelion stand for the Queen, Five and Three. Wands are pink and red, with Hibiscus for the King, Oleander for the Six, and Agave for the Ace. The Swords have white flowers, like Yarrow (Nine), Azalea (Four) and Magnolia (Ace).

Flowers of all colours represent the majors; whatever the artist thought most appropriate for the card archetype… Geranium for the Fool, Jasmine for the Star, Poppy for the Hanged Man, Rose for the World. The major arcana are roughly analogous to standard trumps and include enough familiar symbols to be easily readable.

This is a very sweet tarot; it's not one for face-slapping honesty or confronting imagery. Even the Devil figure is kind of cute… the nymph is only pulling a face at us and there are no chains or flames in sight. The Ten of Swords, normally a violent and even bloody image, shows a sweet-faced blonde girl smiling. The Three of Swords has a curious-looking child, who doesn't look to be in pain or grieving. The Tower is probably the 'scariest' looking card (relatively speaking) in the whole deck: two casually dressed fairies fall headlong from a dead tree. An orchid, the flower association, is below them. (The booklet gives this meaning for the card: XVI - The Tower Orchid. In the language of flowers: end of love. Collapse, excessive ambition, illness, dismissal, deceit, fate, danger, breakdown, warning.)

While the lack of tarot referents in the minors make the Spirit of Flowers difficult to use for the inexperienced, it would be a suitable deck for use with children, querents who are a bit frightened by the idea of tarot cards, or just when you feel the need for a more positive self-reading.
