I’ve had the Everyday Witch Tarot for a few years and I’ve always found it charming and friendly. It comes in a box set with a full-color book engagingly written by Deborah Blake. Now it comes in a mini version, which I assumed would be something like the size of a standard playing card. I was wrong. It is in fact much smaller.
It’s actually so much smaller than anticipated that I wasn’t sure if I’d even be able to shuffle it. I was. I’ve always found shuffling my decks relaxing and it was relaxing in the same way a larger deck would be, with an added element of cuteness. But the pictures are so small that if you were to do a reading with this and you hadn’t already worked with the full-sized deck or the app you might not be able to see much detail. You might not even be able to read the names of cards if you’re, ahem, over forty.
Priced at only about ten bucks, this is mostly a novelty deck. You could toss it in your purse and take it somewhere, but if it were a bit bigger (like the playing card size I expected), you’d be able to do the same.
If you already like and use the full-sized deck, you might enjoy the mini. If you don’t already own the Everyday Witch Tarot and you’re thinking about buying it, I’d recommend the full-sized version. The mini does not come with a book. It is quite adorable but not sure how useful it is.
