  • For me this is a properly pagan divination deck, each of the 78 cards is illustrated with inspiring, engaging, pagan imagery, beautiful and highly recommended. The book helps to interpret the cards as you would Rider Waite.It is structured in a similar manner to the standard Rider-Waite Tarot deck but the traditional tarot suits of wands, cups, disks and swords are here replaced by bows, vessels, stones and arrows. The artwork is borderline alchemical, but not overwhelming incryptic; very pure s [...]


  • I've only had this deck for a short time, but I already find it very relatable, much more so than the traditional Rider-Waite decks. The imagery is stunning, and I like the substitutions that Ryan and Matthews have made - they resonate much more with me. I feel the cards could also be used in ceremony to signify the corners/elements/Watchers, or to draw upon the energy of a particular archetype or symbol.I also find the book very helpful, though I haven't really seen any description of the Shado [...]


  • A book and divination system that suffers from the same hogwash and irrationality as most modern mysticism and occult nonsense. People who know anything about cold readings and the deliberately vague language used by astrologers and fortune tellers will only need to glance at the prose of the book to realize that it's swimming in the stuff. I have heard one ore two rational defenses of Tarot as a meditative guide or fun party game (far be it from me to say anything that would show disrespect tow [...]


  • One of the best tarot decks I've encountered. Overall it has a very grounding and positive outlook to its artwork and interpretations, shifting focus away from negativity in whatever situation is presented.I look forward to discovering a tarot deck that resonates with me more deeply than this one does. It was easy to get familiar with, to get in tune with and understand on an intuitive level, and it continues to amaze me with its accuracy.


  • I read the book from cover to cover taking in even the tiniest bits of information. I plan on reading the book once more and drawing some diagrams and making notes that may help me even more to connect to the deck itself. I loved the book and I have no doubt that it will bring me much help and inspiration!


  • Beautiful. Have read the book - obviously, the cards will take some time to get to know. I have almost all Will Worthington's other decks but this one is my favourite. I missed out on the Greenwood Tarot, the first time round so was pleased to see this, although didn't get round to getting it til now, the third edition! I understand the book is slightly extended and the deck now has decorated backs, which the first edition didn't.Been a fan of Mark Ryan for a long time. He is cogent and writes w [...]



  • I got this book with the Wildwood tarot deck, naturally, and I love both the book and the cards. This deck has associations with the cycle of the seasons that I'd never seen before and it was such an illuminating way to think about the tarot.The art is beautiful and ethereal and doing readings with these cards is pure joy!


  • This is a great deck, my first. I found it to be very accessible and easy to extract uncanny metaphor from my first readings. I chose this deck after getting a reading in public at the local cannabis club. A therapist intern was there doing readings with three decks and I chose this one. The first card shown in a three-card spread was the fool. It set the tone for my appreciation of the tarot.The overall layout of these cards are non-traditional. After some thought, I have decided that I really [...]


  • I just go this book card set for my birthday and I am blown away by all that the author Mark Ryan has done. The art work on the cards is very good, simple detail, clear and I can see it all with out having to strain my old eyes. The book seems good too, I am just getting in to it and like what I am reading.Edit to my first review.Up on reading through the book, wow, way too environmental for me to try to use with cards. At this point they will just go on my shelves in my nice to look at tarot an [...]


  • I love this tarot deck. The illustrations provide a real insight for me when I use them. The only other tarot I liked this much was the Golden Tarot by Kat Black. I walked into the store and was immediately taken in by the artwork on the boxes cover. After awhile I started finding (with Help) a deeper meaning in the images when putting forth questions that went beyond what the book said. I now work almost daily with the Wildwood and find it a great comfort in uncertain times. The book that comes [...]


  • I didn't think I could like a deck more than my Wild Unknown. But I must say I love this deck!!Imagery is beautiful. Each card tells a story(something missing from my Wild Unknown deck). The book is great. I love the wheel of the year & earth centered theme. Detailed descriptions for all the cards except the court cards. They had less description than the others which was disappointing. I love that the themes & descriptions are very relatable. All in all a great deck that I look forward [...]


  • The Wildwood deck is steeped in mythology and shamanism; powerfully exuding its unique energy and magic. The colors are earthy and muted; the drawing, fine, offering a multitude of details to meditate upon. The illustrations move me to intense and intimidating feelings at times. The Wildwood deck certainly has five stars worth of magical wonder and curiosity. I hear its siren call now.I feel it beckoning. Perhaps nudging me to give it a five star rating. ;)


  • Well I haven't tried the cards yet, but I find the book (on the cards) very, very confusing.There are some of the cards, which I have no idea how to read, after having read the book.I suppose the best advice really is, as the one in the book: "read the book, meditate on the cards, then put the book away and do your own thing" is yet to be tested!The artwork is absolutely wonderful!!


  • "Theoretical considerations of cause and effect often look pale and dusty in comparison to the results of chance."I really do like the book, the cards of course are beautiful and rife with symbolism. the card meanings could have been a little more differentiated tho, you definitely need to be familiar with tarot before you jump into the wildwood


  • I adore the book. The art on the Major Arcana cards are beautiful! Some of the minor cards are not beautiful, rather comic book like






  • A beautifully illustrated deck, full of opportunities to develope your own insights and intuition. A lovely way to further your tarot reading and progress with your own psychic journey.


  • Wonderful philosophy behind the works of the Tarot deck. Reading the book is just a peek behind the scenes. The deck now needs to reveal itself by me starting to work with it.
