'Everyone wants guidance during times of uncertainty, a light shining in the dark, Colette writes.
The Good Tarot is especially helpful when you feel lost, want confirmation about a direction you’re heading in, are concerned about the results of choices you’ve made, or seek greater understanding of your circumstances. It’s about recognising the many forms of truth and seeing the light that accompanies the shadow so you can help the light increase its brilliance.'
From the moment you're opening the box you can feel the love that went into making these cards. They're large, feel smooth in your hands and the illustrations are gorgeous.. When I was taking the pics (that again don't do them justice), the Sun & Magician cards were flying around in the breeze, I had to pick them up twice!
(Note to self: Look in the guidebook and read what that means for me)

When Colette Baron-Reid first began doing professional readings almost 30 years ago, she used the traditional tarot as a source of intuitive guidance. Now she has taken the classical form and given it a modern twist, with suits and meanings that are focused on transformation and personal growth.
Grounded in a divination system that dates back centuries, The Good Tarot has a psychic architecture that’s more simple and modern, rooted in contemporary positive psychology and aimed at the expression of the highest good for all. The 78 cards in the deck are read as archetypal aspects of the human experience that we may encounter within ourselves, with others, or in the world.
The suits in The Good Tarot are the four elements, with Air standing in for the traditional Swords, Water replacing Cups, Earth for Pentacles, and for Wands, Fire.
A crucial difference from traditional decks is that the cards’ messages are all written as positive affirmations in the present tense, rather than forecasts, instructions, or warnings. Those who use the cards in the suggested way can integrate their energy immediately and personally.
Even so, traditional tarot enthusiasts can still apply their favourite spreads to this deck as its formation doesn’t stray too far from what is already familiar, and the breathtaking original artwork will be sure to inspire.
Our Tarot & Oracle Library includes a bunch of different authors, including some pretty cool Aussies! Whether you're new to buying cards, or you've been using them for years, you are welcome to join my VIP Lounge. I try to use our new cards as they arrive, and old favourites are featured also. You should never be afraid to try something new - you can do anything.
- The answer is a resounding yes!
- The short answer is that oracle cards give you the opportunity to find a more deeply intuitive reading, probs because there is no real tradition to the cards. Tarot is more structured, and can take some time to learn. That being said, you can most definitely pick up a tarot deck and understand what they are telling you!
- All of our decks come with guidebooks designed to do absolutely that - to teach and guide you on your divination journey. I recommend oracle cards to anyone who is starting out - you can make them be whatever you want them to be - which will inspire you to try and keep practising.
