Reviews of this deck:
I recently purchased the Cosmic Tarot deck and was a bit disappointed in the card stock… but alas, today I actually shuffled the deck and found how wrong I was as they were pretty stiff and sturdy. I am now a satisfied owner of the deck
Yes, I have it, and both companion books. It’s fun figuring out the famous people portrayed – Charles Bronson is one, Sophia Loren….I personally like it very much.
I have always been drawn to this deck; but it’s Thoth based. I think I must have a block with Thoth, because I am drawn to sooo many Thoth decks but when I get them, I shelve them and make excuses for not working with them. I have this deck, but I don’t use it. There must be a reason there.
I’ve had the Cosmic Tarot for a long time now. I was attracted to the High Priestess in this deck but, honestly, disappointed with it once I opened the box — it’s got a pretty serious 80s vibe, with court cards that look like Farah Fawcett and Tom Selleck.
Anyway, after trying it out a few times, it’s grown on me, and this year I’ve been using it as my personal deck and working on building a bond. I love the gentle colours and it pushes me out of my comfort zone more than the Waite-Smith or Morgan-Greer (the other 2 decks I have here).
Some of the imagery is very unconventional, and I’ve found it confounding. Today, noticing the similarities in the 4 of Wands and 6 of Swords, I thought, “There must be a book about this” and was delighted to see it for less than $4 on Amazon for Kindle!
