I'm not great with the astrological side of things either but I do get a lot from this deck.

Julia's artwork really works for me - the Ancestral Path was the first deck I really connected with so I treated myself to the MAAT in January. The images are just sumptuous and bring so many of the meanings alive. At the moment, I read from it pretty intuitively but do use the book for the astrological bit in case I'm missing something crucial.

I try to simplify it by looking at the way she has grouped the cards together in a moon cycle, relating it to traditional meanings and finding the common link. It's not foolproof but working ok so far. For example, the Major card that kicks of the Cycle of aries is the Emperor so I look at ways in which the other cards relate to the theme of our power, decisions we make etc.
