We’ve All Heard Of Miss Cleo.
These cards follow the Rider-Waite system. They have an Egyptian Theme. I think they’re great for beginners or those who aren’t quite sure if they want to learn how to read Tarot cards.
I find it a bit disturbing that this Tarot deck has a description including: “Fun novelty gag, party favor.” I’m all for party favors and I agree this is a fun novelty item … but “gag”??!! This makes me wonder about other Tarot decks and whether they would be considered “gag” as well …
I do have a sense of humor, but not at the expense of others. I’m aware of who she is and some of the controversy around her readings … but would this be a “gag” gift or a “novelty item”? For the price I can understand they would make wonderful “party favors” … and they can be used and passed around however you wish … And your thoughts and feelings about Miss Cleo and Tarot are your own … I just found it quite odd to be considered a “gag” gift …

With The Assistance Of YouTube, I Thought It Worthwhile For Miss Cleo To Speak About Her Tarot Deck.
This may be helpful in determining whether this is a serious Tarot deck or a “gag” gift.
Miss Cleo is well-known for her info-mercials which made her a household name. Many can scoff about this, but she did succeed in getting a message out in the public eye, Just as others have done with mops, beauty aides, diet programs and the list goes on and on ,..
I take Tarot seriously. Is it for everyone? Probably not. Just as not everything is for everyone,
I hope this post has been informative and helpful.
I enjoy exploring different Tarot decks. Some interest me while others don’t. It is all a matter of personal preference.
Lately I’ve been delving into Tarot of Haunted House. The whole concept intrigues me I find it interesting how the mansion and the Higher Arcana plays a major role in this deck … along with the Minor Arcana and how this relates to my life and the lives of others. I suppose I like this deck so much because I’m fascinated by haunted houses and the spirits that still may be around causing all kinds of disturbances and trouble …
What does this have to do with Miss Cleo’s Tarot Card Power Deck?
Probably nothing, other than it is necessary to check out a number of different Tarot decks and see which ones interest you.
For me, it has to do with the style of the Tarot cards and if I’d use them regularly. It is a matter of feeling a connection to the cards. I’m into ghost stories so Tarot of Haunted House and Ghost Tarot would interest me.
For other Tarot decks I’ve been drawn by the name or the artwork. I’m sure other factors played a part. I just know I’m into the “story” the Tarot cards tell …
Miss Cleo may very well be your guide to learning the Tarot … or you may find it elsewhere.
