This is another deck that from the first time I held it, the cards, their images and the meanings in the book all spoke deeply and clearly to me. I have had some of the most accurate and insightful reading with this deck for myself and my family. The Celtic and Shaman slant give it depth...and beauty! I have actually given this deck away to two family members, once giving my own deck away. I could not wait to replace it!! The book has quite a bit of information on Shaman ism shapesifting, also.
