I would very much like to be part of a study group for this deck. You are correct in that there isn't a lot of specific details.. like WHY does the High Priestess have an infant? It's pulling up some odd "Virgin Mary" imagery for me... not sure how to reconcile that with a Pagan deck (at least in my head) but cards like the Hierophant (I spelled that wrong, didnt' I?) have some great details that don't explain the imagery, per se but do provide a little mental stimulation on getting your own stuff out of it.
Got mine today. I too was immediately connected to the imagery. I was glad to see a page with some symbol explanations. That was actually much more than I was expecting based on some reviews.
Yes.. was wondering about the baby in the High Priestess. I didn't think of the Virgin Mary, but still found it a little odd, especially given the babe's facial expression. Does it have anything to do with the symbols in her book? Does she know something about the baby? Is it a Wiccaning?
Definitely something worth discussing in a study group.
