Some time ago I said I'd put up more of my favorite images from The Circle of Life Tarot. At last I've got the time to do so. The bigger part of the work and also enjoyment in preparing for this post was actually choosing a pile of favorites. However, I did not like having to winnow them down to just these five. I consoled myself with the knowledge that I can always do another post with some of those others at a later date. I'm going to forego any comments on these cards and just let you see in them what you will. I'm fairly certain, though, that you'll find them ranging from fun to highly suggestive and intriguing. (Especially for those already familiar with a variety of Tarot images.)

The first image above at the top of this post is The High Priestess (II).

This next below is the Nine of Cups:

And one following is the Two of Pentacles:

The King of Cups is below:

And last is the Two of Swords:

Hope you've enjoyed this little sample of the endlessly imaginative and wise Circle of Life Tarot.

Wow - what a cool deck! I see that they're circular. Does that make it difficult to shuffle? What type of results have you gotten in your readings with this deck?

Hi, Nicole,

Yes it's really a cool deck. And it's not the easiest to shuffle but worth the little bit of hassle. The cards also tend to slide around and not stay at the angle of view at which I first laid them down. (There's degrees of tilt, not just upright and reversed as with rectangular cards, of course. :-D) I imagine if I worked with it regularly I'd get used to both these little glitches. But it's one of those decks I only go to when something reminds me of an image on one of the cards. And that does happen periodically. Even from the little sampling here you can see they are highly evocative designs.

As to the type of results I get? I am able to get satisfying readings out of any of my many decks. (There's only one instance in which that has not been true: The Voyager Tarot. I can't read with it. It's just too gorgeous, too rich. I get lost in the art of it. Though I haven't tried reading with it in years so maybe things have changed ... ah HAH! there's a little project for this evening.)

Thanks for stopping by. BTW, I'll be putting up a link here to your site as soon as I do my next maintenance work.

blessings ...
