online before purchasing it. I admit it, I was resistant to this new concept! Naturally suspicious (yes I’m a Scorpio and today is my birthday) by nature of anything that feels “trendy”, or “contrived”. But I do love innovation and this deck proved to be just that. Innovative, imaginative and now holds a permanent position at my reading table.

When it first arrived, it took me about a week to open it. That’s how resistant I was! I pulled out the cards and thought, “but there is only one aspect of a card on each one of transparencies!” I am definitely not going to like this deck and I felt validated in my hesitation to purchase it in the first place. I put the cards aside and opened Emily’s accompanying book, which is a good size I might say.

That was the trigger to turn my thinking around. Emily is an excellent writer and what she has to say is well worth reading. She knows the Tarot! She met the mustard so to speak in her knowledge of the Tarot classics (which I’m also rather fussy about) and distilled all that she understood about the Tarot to one central image. But she doesn’t just stop there! Throughout this book she gives many, many examples of readings done with this deck and I delighted in reading every one of them. By page 56 (the book is a hefty 280 pages) I couldn’t wait to work with this deck. Reading with this deck really is as Emily states, “An evolutionary shift in tarot reading”. You don’t lay out the cards one by one, rather you layer them one atop the other to build a card which represents final outcome.

Each card has one single image on the transparency but Emily has placed these images in different positions on the deck to facilitate this layering affect. Sometimes the central symbols fall one atop the other which creates a whole new symbol, but often the symbols at different positions on the card will create a whole new scene. It’s addictive!

When reading for clients I always save these cards for the end of the session, when a client will often ask, “Do you have any last thoughts Kathleen? Any last words of wisdom before I go?” That’s when I pull out the Transparent Tarot and say, “Let’s see what the Tarot’s parting comment is!” Inevitably it’s perfect. One woman asked about whether I thought she would need an operation due to a dropped uterus and the first card up was the “Hanged One” depicting a chrysalis suspended from a branch. My client burst out laughing when she saw the image! “Oh my God!”, she gasped, “Is that for REAL?!” We giggled together and I said, “Yes I do think an operation will be in order. It stands now suspended but being in a chrysalis stage it’s very likely to go through a change that will make it uncomfortable indeed!

If you have not purchased a copy of this deck I highly recommend you do so. It was published in 2008 so there may not be many left. It’s fun, informative and a great learning tool. I’ve recommended it highly to new and virtuoso tarotists alike.

Combine shipping is possible.
