The Robin Wood Tarot has rapidly become one of the most popular Tarot decks in the world. And no wonder! Robin Wood's beautiful art, with its vibrant imagery and luminous energies, has enchanted Pagans and non-Pagans alike.
The twenty-two cards of the Major Arcana are filled with life that, until now, was unseen in the Tarot. The The Robin Wood Tarot takes the traditional images outside of rooms and into the beautiful abodes of the gods. The Magician, wearing mystical robes, is crowned by the stag horns showing him to be the God of the Hunt. The High Priestess, an ageless woman, wears a lunar band, showing her authority within a coven. The devil shows two figures escaping their chains toward the light of new possibilities. Since Pagans don't believe in the Devil, there is no brooding figure on this card. You will enjoy the other unique cards in the Major Arcana, too.
The shining strength of The Robin Wood Tarot deck lies in its depiction of the fifty-six cards of the Minor Arcana. All of these cards spring into pulsating life! The characters on the cards almost seem to breathe. Often, the cards seem so dimensional that you get the feeling you could jump into them. Watch the boy carefully carve the pentagrams on the wooden disks of the eight of Pentacles. Gleefully help steal away with the blades in the five of Swords. Join in the merry dance on the four of Wands. Share a drink with the slightly tipsy gent on the nine of Cups.
