Tarot-Like Deck Review:

Developer/Editor: Liz & Colin Murray
Artist: Vanessa Card
Cards Set
Publisher: St Martins Press
Publication date: October 1988
ISBN: 0312020325

This deck and accompanying book have some of the nicest packaging I've seen in the commercially available decks, coming in a wooden case. [Unfortunately, the newer printings apparently do not--webmaster] The Celtic Tree Oracle uses Celtic myths about trees to create a divination system. Said to draw on both the knowledge of the Celts and of Runic lore, the use of the cards is really not that much different from use of a tarot deck although the layouts are quite different and more complicated than the more popular Tarot ones. For example, there's one supposedly based on the Kaballah which is even more complicated than the Tarot version, which takes some doing! These layouts could be adapted to tarot use, if the reader wanted to experiment a little. The cards are lovely - wonderful subdued colors really set off intricate Celtic knotted borders and painstakingly accurate drawing of various types of trees (reminds me at times of the drawings in herbals in fact).
