absolutely rave about this deck, and I know quite a few others who absolutely detest it. Me?....I'm somewhere in the middle. Normally I wouldn't bother to write a reveiw for a deck that I feel kind of apathetic and "middle of the road" about, but this deck merits some appreciation from me because I actually use it often in professional readings.

Those of you out there who also do readings for the public, in varied places, might understand where I'm coming from. There have been occasions where I have been booked as a psychic reader in the most unlikely places... taverns, mall openings, church socials, spaghetti dinners, etc. And often in these places,I would come across people who equate "Tarot" with "Occult" and therefore with "evil". These are the times, when I call what I do "Angel Readings", and I pull out a couple of Angel Oracle decks... and the Connolly.

What I like about the Connolly is that there are no "bad" cards. The images and the symbolism are all colorful and light and positive, and for the most part, people don't even realize that I am reading with a Tarot deck at all. Both Death and the Devil have been renamed and transformed. (into Transition and Materialism, respectively.) The Ten of Swords, and for that matter, the whole suit of swords looks a little less intense, and a whole lot easier to swallow.

The deck has been loosely based on the images of the Rider-Waite... and I really have to stress the term "loosely" because of a couple of card images that have been oddly reworked in a confusing, and unfathomable way. Some cards have drawings that actually remind me so strongly of the images from different cards, that they can be distracting.

For instance, on the 8 of swords,in the Connolly, there is a picture of a man looking out of a leaded glass window at the hilts of swords sticking out of the snow... which puts me in mind of the Rider-Waite card of the 5 of Pentacles (stained glass window, people in the snow) certainly more than the R/W 8 of swords (woman bound, blindfolded and surrounded by swords).

I guess I can see where the artist was going with the symbolism, but when I'm used to seeing a certain deck of images, that *most* of the other cards in this deck also relate to, it can be a little jarring. The 5 of Wands is similar, in that it reminds me of the Rider-Waite 6 of swords (a man in a boat full of tall objects heading towards the shore). And then there are a couple where I have *no* idea what symbology the artist had in mind, for the meaning of the card. Like the 4 of swords, which pictures a man looking over a little garden wall and gate at four swords and a chest of money. Eh? I just don't get it.

Now, the way this deck works for me, and my angel readings, is fairly simple. I use it as an enhancement for the other angel decks, and as a symbolic crutch to open up my psychic channels and receive other images.

Combine shipping is possible.
