As always I’m extremely excited whenever I see an astrologically-themed deck floating around the oracle/tarot universe. The Astrology Reading Cards deck is visually stunning (illustrations by Richard Crookes) and is more detailed an in-depth than the, Ask Astro Star Kards. Consisting of 36 cards divided into 3 sets (houses, planets and signs) each set of cards can be shuffled individually, or shuffled all together for a more impromptu reading experience. I preferred this method as it gave my reading a more organic feel.
The cards come with a 95-page book that gives insight into each sign, house, and planet. The planetoid Chiron is included in this deck as well as the asteroid, Vesta, which was a pleasant surprise. It would have been a wonderful edition if other asteroid goddesses such as, Juno, Ceres, and Pallas were included; despite this omission the deck is a joy to work with and if you’re someone who enjoys combining astrological patterns/insight with oracle cards this is the deck for you.
The only complaint I have is the card stock. It’s extremely thin and makes shuffling each set of cards frustrating.

I just had to comment about the fact that I created a deck of astrology cards but my card deck is different in that it was designed to be used to play familiar card games for fun and yet within the cards there is actually a beginning course in astrology. You can’t play with them without picking up information that the cards impart. You can view my cards and how to use them at Astrologerpeg.WordPress.com. You will see them on the top menu bar. I felt you might like seeing them since you enjoy astrology cards. Thank you for looking.
