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 Tarotare 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 favorite 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.
“Everyone wants guidance during times of uncertainty, a light shining in the dark,” Colette writes. “The Good Tarotis 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 recognizing the many forms of truth and seeing the light that accompanies the shadow so you can help the light increase its brilliance.”

Although this deck lacks basic Tarot symbolism, it is still a very warm and inviting deck. If you read Tarot well, you can still read with this deck. If you don't read Tarot at all, you can learn this deck. Just don't expect to pick up a Tarot deck and know what you're doing. I would not recommend this for Tarot students who have not mastered a traditional deck, unless you approach this as a completely different system. Once you know the nuances of the traditional deck, you can blend the two.

This was part of my first order. I opened this deck during stressful situations twice. On a whim, and both times it helped me in profound ways. I just refreshed my account because I ordered this deck so long ago that I forgot my login info. I am back on the site tonight to buy these for my friend because she wil love them. They are so helpful for me now, I just grab them and get some great questions to ask myself. It's like affirmations but supercharged with them being so open giving you cool unexpected perspectives. Im grateful for this deck and I can see it being helpful for many people in their transformation and growth while getting to understand energetic needs. Like with human design or other zodiac, numerlogoy, or anything else along the lines of knowing thyself. <3 I'd say they are WORTH IT!
