Review: The Halloween Tarot

As the first of a series of Tarot and oracle card reviews, it seemed appropriate to kick things off with The Halloween Tarot, a Rider-Waite-inspired deck with a holiday twist. Aside from renaming the suits–Imps (Wands), Bats (Swords), Ghosts (Cups), and Pumpkins (Pentacles)–the symbolism is quite in keeping with the Rider-Waite deck, and therefore easy to read for anyone versed in that imagery. Despite the spooky themes, The Halloween Tarot is not at all threatening, but rather in the spirit of fun. Even the Death and The Devil cards are oddly good-natured and even sweet. This deck is perfect for anyone who loves Halloween, but dislikes gruesome or threatening images (though we will explore those decks in the future).
