From the Blasted Oak to the Green Man, classic forest archetypes come alive in this brilliant deck of the Tarot. A powerful divinatory oracle blending pre-Celtic mythology with shamanic symbolism and energies. The Wildwood Tarot is a creation of Mark Ryan (author) and John Matthews (author) featuring some of the most evocative pagan imagery from the very talented illustrator Will Worthington.
Mark has excelled with this deck as it’s popularity attests to, basing the Wildwood deck on seasonal rhythms and ancient festivals. A seventy eight card Tarot loosely fitting in form to the traditional oracle RWS system. while being quite nontraditional giving it a very powerful and stunning identity. Every card has been renamed as well as the suits, with the Minor arcana receiving keywords unique to them. The artwork by Worthington is so lovely the imagery on many of the cards would by themselves make fabulous prints. Wind drifted snow scenes, medieval ships seeking harbor from stormy seas, and human figures set in the stone age, all painted in rich colors and Earth tones. The aesthetic of this deck is one of ‘ancient times’ and the power that is exuded from Earth; from the trees and the stones drawn in high detail. A hunter and gatherer motif throughout the deck gives the Wildwood Tarot a true sense of the mystical past and the magick of the previous age of Man. Animals replace people on the court cards and changes such as Chariot to the ‘Archer’, Justice to the ‘Woodard’, and the Hanged Man to the ‘Mirror’ makes this deck unique. The energies come through strongly in the Wildwood Tarot and for many readers, once they are acquainted with the cards and connect with it through Spirit this set has the potential to become a very prized oracle to have in their collection.
Packaged in a sturdy box this set includes a 160 page companion book that includes step by step instructions for anyone new to reading the Tarot. Two pages dedicated to each of the Major Arcana and a page for each of the Minor arcana providing the divinatory meanings and descriptions in great detail. Overall a stunning deck imbued with primal, pagan energy, the Wildwood Tarot deck will not disappoint.
