Please note that these videos were recorded on Periscope - so please forgive pausing to read the screen, block creeps, and non-sequiturs. Also, I want to make it clear that I do love this deck. I have a lot of respect for the artists and people who came together to create it. But because I love it so much...I have to be honest.
Too long...couldn't watch?
- The Major Arcana has some very strange interpretations. Some of the constellation/zodiac assignments make sense, but a lot of them don't.
- The Minor Arcana do not match up to RWS traditional tarot symbolism and meanings. Which is okay! Just don't expect to look at the King of Fire and have it match up at all to the King of Wands. The suits in the Cosmos Tarot have their own journey, from 1 (ace) to King, and I can appreciate that.
- The Oracle is beautiful. Almost perfect. But the order of the cards is a little perplexing.
- The cards are beautiful. The deck is of an amazing quality.
- There's one card that I hate. HATE. I can't help it. But it sticks out so much in comparison to the other cards that it's jarring.
If you have this deck...what are your thoughts?
