A Tarot Deck Review

Barbara Moore, the author of The Mystic Faerie Tarot deck requested Linda Ravenscroft to be the artist on this particular project and between them they have created a stunningly beautiful deck which is published by Llewellyn. It comes beautifully packaged in a gorgeous pale green and gold box which contains the 78 card deck, a gold organza card bag and a 312 book titled “A Guide to the Mystic Faerie Tarot”.

What is so different about this particular deck for me is that, of late most of the decks that I use tend to be a lot stronger in character and sometimes a little on the ‘dark’ side but I occasionally have a sitter with me who I can feel is not comfortable with the strength of the messages that come from this particular style of card. It is for this purpose that I have in my collection the Mystic Faerie deck. It has a gentle energy within its cards which leads the sitter quietly through their dilemmas and joys.
This is what I call my ‘soft and fluffy’ deck, this by no means reflects a weakness in this deck rather that it is simply a way to explain the gentleness within its images. There is nothing in any of the illustrations that could cause distress to a sitter. The messages come through with a tenderness and sweetness that has the ability to soothe and lighten the saddest of hearts. The tiny Fae appear to be very aware of how fragile we humans can sometimes be in times of difficulty and show us only compassionate and joy. I would recommend this deck to novices and up.

‘A Guide to Mystic Faerie Tarot’


Barbara Moore starts her beautifully written book with introductions to herself and her author Linda Ravenscroft. She then shares with us a brief explanation of tarot in general and the break down of a typical tarot deck also sharing with us the purpose of each part of the deck, being the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana being the Court cards and what is commonly called the number (or pip) cards.

Barbara then introduces us to the magical faerie garden that Linda and herself have created by saying “Are you ready for an adventure?” and it is from this point that you know that you have entered a very special place as she leads you into a meditation.

“Imagine yourself in a long-forgotten garden.
It is overgrown and unattended yet beautiful and alluring.`
You are drawn in and compelled to explore.
A splash of colour here, an intriguing shape there.
A soft leaf just asks to be touched.”

What a beautiful way to enter a faerie ring within a deck of tarot cards!

Barbara then moves through each of the 78 cards individually, sharing with you the story of each particular Major Arcana Faerie and giving you the message that each of these cards have to give you. She then pauses in the middle to introduce the 4 stories within the Minor Arcana being “The Grand Adventure” of the suit of Wands, “The Magic Celandine” found in the suit of Cups, “The Blue Rose” told in the suit of Swords and finally “A Faerie’s Fortune” within the suit of Pentacles. These stories fill the cards with more richness and with a deeper understanding of the life of the Fae folk. She continues on to give explanations and messages from each of the minor arcana cards.

Barbara goes on to explain what she feels is the best way to do a reading and to be given the answers to yours or the sitter's questions. Barbara then points the way to 9 different spreads that will help you lay the cards on the table. She then follows through with examples of readings for you to look over and learn from. This is followed by a simple quick reference listing to make things easier for you to find and understand. All in all this is an excellent book that is clearly written in words that do not require us, as readers to work out what she is trying to say. The book is complimented by Linda Ravenscroft’s wonderful illustrations.

The Mystic Faerie cards were individually hand drawn and painted with water colours by Linda Ravenscroft. Her loving use of the pastel water colours has given such a gentle feel to each of the cards bearing images of your typical garden faerie as represented in children’s book. Linda went on to create a delicate golden Art Nouveau style boarder held within a pale green frame where the Fae folk are beautifully depicted with their delicate features, each adorned with flowers and fruits and wearing the most glorious faerie clothing. You really do feel like you have stepped into a Fae mushroom ring … very magical and beautiful cards.

At a glance these cards don’t look very much like tarot cards, in fact they remind me more of a child’s picture book, but as you look more closely at the images you will find that Linda has incorporated many of the typical tarot symbols. Some may be very subtly disguised but none-the-less there. The Tower card for example has all the elements in it from the tower through to the lightning bolt. Yet in none of the cards do I feel the burdens often represented in cards such as the Death card. Linda has drawn for us on this card a pretty young Fae sitting quietly on a skull and looking outward as if in wonder of what the next step will be.

I have no doubt what so ever that anyone who is drawn to this deck will be as enchanted by it as I am.
