Reviews

My first impressions of this deck were to think it fluffy and light: an older but not wiser sister to the adolescent Witchy Tarot. But that’s not the case - the Pagan Tarot, instead, is firmly grounded in reality. Flipping through cards feels like we’re flicking through snapshots of a twenty-something American Pagan girl - a modern girl with modern accoutrements: cards, computers, even a laptop - taken at regular intervals in her daily life. It comes across to me as a Tarot of the everyday; very prosaic and oriented towards the physical and material aspects of life. (Minutiae outweighs the spectacular in most lives, and it adds an extra touch of realism that it does so in this deck as well!)

As mentioned, the card imagery is very modern, but the symbolism will be familiar to the regular Tarot reader. This is the kind of intuitive Tarot that supplies very human, very plausible scenes of human interaction and leaves you to make your own interpretation. There are no keywords to confine the meaning, either on the cards or in the booklet. Instead, you must look at the scene, and think about what is happening, and why, and how the people involved feel about it.

The court cards have been modified to fit the Pagan theme, and are now Elemental, Novice, Initiate, and Elder. They are evenly divided into men (Swords and Wands) and women (Chalices and Pentacles): all willowy and elegant but differing in age, hair colour and appearance. The art style is true-to-life but is let down somewhat by the colouring, which is a little cold and heavy (there is no red in these cards) and gives the girl’s life a dull veneer. The variations between cards can also be quite marked. Some like the Four of Pentacles and Five of Pentacles are in browns and greys, leached of almost all colour and sparkle, while the Four of Chalices seems over saturated with their artificial greens and lurid apricot skin tones.

In most cases, this deck works, and some cards I very much liked. The Hermit holed up in her study, writing furiously, while surrounded by a pile of books. The Nine of Cups, which assumes three dimensions in the Pagan Tarot and shows the girl shopping in an old-fashioned store attended by the storekeeper. In the Two of Wands, she is a backpacker, one torch extinguished behind her while the one she holds lights the way. And the Nine of Pentacles, where the elements of the card are the same as the Rider-Waite’s – lone woman – house – animals – garden – but updated for the modern Pagan theme. (I like the way she is resting but not lazing, she still looks poised for action.)

Others missed the mark, like The Chariot (which appears to have broken down, and the girl stares into space while two Good Samaritans approach) and The Wheel, my least favourite card. I normally see it as card of destiny or fate, the unseen hand of the universe, but in this deck, the woman sits at her computer and dispassionately looks at a pie chart on screen - it doesn’t have the same sense for me at all. And Temperance, again on the computer, a card which just as easily could have been stood in for the Magician.

On the whole, the Pagan Tarot is a workable divinatory and meditative deck for anyone with minimal Tarot knowledge and an affinity for the Pagan and Wiccan perspectives. There is no need here to interpret obscure medieval or esoteric symbolism; these cards are very real, and the contemporary items and familiar backdrops make it very easy to apply to real-life situations.
