– Beautiful box illustration
– Glossy cards
– Shuffle well
– Stunning artwork
– Pastel colors
– Pretty card back artwork
– Colored guidebook
– Keywords on cards
The Mythic Goddess Tarot is printed on glossy slightly flimsy cardstock. I would label these cards as a true glossy deck as they reflect and you can feel the glossy film on the cards, they also shuffle nicely. The cards come packaged in a strange box, it’s my first time seeing a tarot deck packaged that opens from the side. Inside, the box contains the guidebook and the deck. The blue color on the inside is pretty though, reminds me of my room color. haha
The box art illustration is really cute! It’s also the same artwork on the Judgement card. All of the Major Arcana cards have lovely illustrations and the colors in this deck are lovely, think pastel with hints of earthy colors and pops of color. Even the card back artwork is pretty! The entire deck is stunning.
As the title explains, this is a deck that focuses a lot on gods and goddesses from mythology and folklore from around the world. In the guidebook, the stories or background information on said god or goddess is featured.
The guidebook is colored! I know a lot of people in the tarot community like to see this so if you’re a fan of colored guidebooks, you’re in luck! In the guidebook, each card has a meaning and more keywords (not mentioned on the card), the major arcana even has a mantra for each card. I will also note that this deck doesn’t have reversal explanations. Not everyone who reads Tarot reads reverse cards as they don’t like to associate Tarot with negaitive meanings. The booklet is a decent size and contains a lot of useful knowledge.
– Slightly flimsy cardstock
– Strange box
– Pip minor cards
I already mentioned the flimsy cardstock and a little about the strange box thing so I won’t go too in-depth on this. However, because of the box and its weird shape, I decided to store these cards in a pouch for convenience. So, if you buy this deck you might want to get a pouch for your cards for easy access.
One of my least favorite things about this deck is the minor cards, besides the 4 suits cards the rest of the 1-10 minor cards are pip cards which are cards with the same image copied several times. They could’ve done something more creative and featured other gods and goddesses like what they did in the Tarot of the Divine deck.
I do like this deck. Now, is it my favorite deck? No. But it’s a lovely deck and the box stands out from the rest of the card decks in my collection. By the way, who wants to see an updated post with all my decks?
I’m torn between recommending this deck for beginners because on hand the tarot cards come with keywords to associate the card too but on the other hand, the minor cards don’t showcase any details like other tarot decks and tarot is very visual so it helps to practice visualization with tarot cards if you’re new to tarot. If you’re into mythology and gods and goddesses then you will probably like this deck. If you want a deck that’s simple yet pretty, then you’ll love this deck.
