I've had this deck in my collection for a while, but i havent really connected with it. I hoped to use it as a sort of step into understanding all things Celtic, especially the myths.
The book goes into some detail and i know Caitlin Matthews is a respected author on Celtic dodah.
But i've had problems connecting with the deck itself! Maybe its not the right time to jump into it.
I was just wondering what experiences people have had from it ?
Seems to be a deck in many collections but i cant find an individual thread about this deck!

|I've owned two different copies of this deck (I traded it and then realized I needed it back a few months later, so bought a new set). The first time I owned it I had the same experience as you, Sezo: I couldn't connect with the deck. However, the second time I owned it I had read many of the original Celtic texts and so I understood most of stories anyway. I found that it was easier to click with the deck once I had read teh stories, because then I could link them all. |
You can find most of the texts online. You can take a look at www.sacred-texts.com where they'll have most of them. :D Happy reading!

|Very pretty deck, I am also partial to the Celtic ones :) If I remember correctly these cards are also kind of on the large size. Would love to see a smaller pocket version of this deck come out!
