Thank you for responding again Ravynangel ,and Serenia for sharing your experience with this deck. I looked at the images again, and have decided I'm not going to purchase this deck (atleast at this time). Like I mentioned before, I don't like the pentacles suit, too much red going on and so murky which is not to my taste.

Serenia, the deck sounds edgy like a sharp knife! That is the last thing I need right now.

I believe the Hermit carries a lantern to shed light on darkness which means there would be some murkiness to the card to show light and dark. But that's just my feelings about it.

I have small hands and have no problem with them, if that's what you mean by how they are in the hands.

As far as readability, that is subjective. What some people indicate are very readable decks are ones I have trouble reading.

If you aren't feeling a pull to them when you look at the images then it's probably best to wait or pass on them all together until you have the opportunity to see a deck in person.

What I mean by how they are in the hands is, how they look in real life. Sometimes scans don't do a deck justice.. But I've also experienced decks being better online and when I actually got them they were a disappointment. I am going to stick to my decision and pass on them. Thank you!

It is really lovely...heavy of the atmosphere...not so much on the deep side, but there is enough symbolism in the cards to do a wild intuitive and thoroughly accurate read.

I read with it twice. It was really good. Then I put it away, because I just felt done with it.

Sold it a few months later, because I realized...like many decks...although I liked the images, I wouldn't really ever use it.

And this is exactly why I will pass on this one. I don't need another deck lingering around unused. I f I were to purchase every deck I think is pretty and lovely I'd be buying decks all the time. :p
