Watcher Angel Tarot
by Michelle Belanger and illustrated by Jackie
In this deck all of the trumps have Angel
representations. This deck was drawn largely from the “Book of Enoch” an
ancient Jewish religious text, traditionally ascribed to
Enoch the Great-Grandfather of Noah. Every card in the
deck is fully illustrated.
The single word meanings that are
printed on every card are appropriate and especially
helpful to allow beginning readers to use this deck
successfully. However the cards lend themselves to allow the
reader to use their own intuition to flow freely and
interpret the cards from the images so beautifully rendered
in watercolor. Jackie Williams painted a
full canvas portrait of each card to create this deck.

This deck is chock
full of such beautiful cards it is hard to pick just a

VII – The Chariot – Enoch – Enoch was

paint them in the correct positions to actually turn
correctly. It is a very accurate representation for
Nine of Swords – Nightmares – This is a
card I look at closely in every tarot deck I get my
hands on. In this deck, Jackie has painted what look
like the equivalent of the dementors from the Harry
Potter series of books by J.K. Rowling. For me there
really has been nothing that captures terror better than
those dementors. This card interprets itself even
without the word at the bottom – Fear! Struggling with
demons and anxiety just radiates from this card.
of Wands – Movement – Since wands represent fire and
energy, Jackie chose to show the suit of wands in a unique
and non-traditional way - as swirling balls of force.
This card is mesmerizing. The wand emits the force and
the card shows one person levitating another. What
better way to depict forces of movement and
This has become one of my favorite and most accurate
decks to read with.
