Although this set of oversized majors-only cards is subtitled "Using Your Birthday to Chart Your Course", we found that you don't have to worry about factoring in your birthday at all in order to find the imagery contained here useful. There's nothing wrong with the authors' birthday approach -- but we think the images are stylistically and symbolically intriguing enough to stand on their own merits as a normal tarot deck. Primitive with a child-like innocence, the Tarot Life Cards
aren't as intricate as some other similar decks, such as Monica Clio Sakki's Sakki Sakki Tarot
. But theres much to be said for elegant simplicity -- and with the Tarot Life Cards
, the deck creators largely succeed in using a little to say a lot.
