Osho Zen Tarot Review


This being the very first Tarot Tuesday I feel that I have to honor not only my first deck but the one that has stayed with me all these years.  I've been using this deck as the base of all of my divination work (the same deck even, not two of the same kind) since 1998.


It all started with my very first roommate, a young man named Abdul.  He was incredibly spiritual and used this deck regularly.  He gave me my first tarot reading at age 16.  I remember how much those colorful cards spoke to me and how loud they were.

It wasn't until two years later that I had my own real spiritual awakening and when I decided that I wanted to delve into the world of divination I knew there was only one tool that was going to get me there.  So I went to a new age shop in Scottsdale and rooted around until I found them.  And they were just as loud as Abdul's had been two years earlier.


As someone who can't stand decks in which upside down cards carry their own meanings, this one really appeals to me.  It's nothing against decks that do, I just don't like the physical look of a mixed up deck.  It's one of my pet peeves.  This one doesn't work that way and I love it.  And while it does have Major and Minor cards they are set up just a bit differently.


One thing that I have noticed and love about this deck is that it is very positive.  If you ask, for example, "Will I get a promotion at work?" it's not going to tell you you will or won't.  Instead it tells you what steps you need to take to make it happen and what steps will sabotage your chances.


Since I have been using this deck for so long I know the card meanings inside and out and am able to interpret them with a great deal of clarity.  I think the key to any successful reading is having a strong knowledge of your cards and their strengths and limitations.  This deck fits me like a glove and even though I have many others this is always the one I trust the most and use the most frequently.
One of my favorite cards.

  1. Very cool! I just love the pictures on this one and how it gives even the one being read a clear picture of what you are saying and some times, so clear, that you dont have to explain it at all.
