Although its symbolism concurs with many traditional forms of Tarot imagery and association, this deck is not intended to be used for true readings. It is not a starter deck for would-be magicians; it is novelty item only.
Tarot cards, whether traditional or modern, are not toys. Though we hope that you will find their use as a tool for Storytelling exciting and inspirational, the Tarot traditionally functions as a tool toward self-discovery. Many accounts credit Tarot readings with insights beyond those of "normal" perceptions; others say the cards simply allow you to access those parts of the subconscious that we miss in our daily lives. Whatever the truth may be (assuming there is only one truth), we do not recommend using a game deck for real-life concerns, nor do we condone the use of tools by those who don't know what they're doing with them.
Believer or not, have some respect and common sense. Please.

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
