These cards are very beautiful. However, the book is not very good. I used the book for about a week before deciding to research the astrological meanings of the cards myself. This book is written by someone with no real astrology background. One of the cards I looked up, had the opposite meaning to what was in the book. I don't regret buying them and I really do like them. I just will never buy or read anything by the author again, unless it is artwork that is equally as beautiful as these cards. If you do buy them, I highly encourage you to find your own meaning or research the astrology. Do not go by the book it is not accurate and some of the messages are akin to horoscopes in beauty magazines. The cards themselves are beautiful and represent all phases of the moon and some of the more mythological ones.
