Juliet Sharman-Burke - Tarot expert
Juliet Sharman-Burke was born in Nairobi, Kenya and has spent over 20 years practising astrology and tarot and has written a number of books on these topics, both for beginners and the more advanced. Her fascination with the tarot began in the early 1970s, but it wasn’t until 1976, when she did a course at the Franklin School in London, that she decided to focus more intently on her passion for the tarot, as well as her interest in psychology and astrology. She has successfully combined all these interests into her life and work, through teaching, working and writing books.

Juliet qualified as an analytic psychotherapist and runs a private practice in the city of London. Alongside this, she’s taught and supervised at the Centre for Psychological Astrology since it began in June 1983. She currently runs the administration and organisation sides of the Centre.

Juliet has gone on to write a number of highly acclaimed books on astrology and tarot subjects, plus a book of stories for children. She’s co-authored a couple of titles with Liz Greene, including The Mythic Tarot and The Mythic Journey, the former of which included a tarot deck and was based on Greek myths.

She’s also co-created the Sharman-Caselli Tarot Deck, along with Italian illustrator Giovanni Caselli. Originally produced as part of The Beginner’s Guide to Tarot, the deck has since been released on its own and uses more traditional symbolism on the cards, which is drawn from a mixture of influences, including the Waite, Visconti and Marseilles decks.

Tarot Cards
The Tarot is a specific system that has 78 cards in total. There are 4 suits (referred to as the minor arcana) and 22 other cards (referred to as the major arcana). Each card represents a specific energy. And each card, through the picture on the card, is trying to help you to feel the specific energy of that card. The reason there are so many different kinds of Tarot decks is that Different Tarot decks may present this energy in different pictorial form. We have lots of articles on Tarot.

The original Mythic Tarot Deck understandably has many devotees. The New Mythic Tarot will likely find the same though naturally many will prefer the original offering. I find the alignment with heroes and heroines of Greek Myths very comfortable and the illustrations mostly fit with the traditional meanings linked towards Rider Waite. That said these cards are very different from the Rider Waite and indeed the first edition. The illustrations provide numerous opportunities to build and fashion a reading by way of using quite different prompts and triggers. The Fool for example does not show the dog of tradition instead the brush of fox is worn on the belt He is shown emerging from a cave and he steps into the abyss. Difficulty is shown behind him as path through the mountains of life journey and this card carries its own specific meanings and as others will allow fresh and new insight to be gained. My feeling is that reading these cards gives to allow new potential a different perspective and although the artist may have been given mandate to follow some precepts it is clear that not all the cards link especially easily with tradition.
There is much to be found from reading directly from the images rather than from knowledge.
The artwork is fresh clean and vibrant the cards appear simple and each illustration has the title written clearly above the lines are exact and there is a good deal of detail to work with.
It is so that some cards ‘fit’ less easily than others the Star is one such however overall the clarity of the artwork the design and fresh colouring allows the reader to find and discover in a new way towards a reading that may rest lightly upon traditional foundation but steps away towards......more
