Synopses & Reviews
Based on seasonal rhythms and ancient festivals, The Wildwood Tarot gift set draws inspiration from pre-Celtic mythology and shamanic mysteries. This stunning new tarot card deck introduces us to classic forest archetypes--including the Green Man and Woman, Archer, and Blasted Oak--and explains how to use them as a meditation system, divinatory oracle, or reference. Will Worthington's powerful pagan images connect us with a long-lost world that can help us make sense of our own.
Love troubles? Job difficulties? Health problems? If you're seeking answers, who better to find them than history's greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes? His keen powers of perception and extraordinary exploits have inspired this dazzling new divination deck, which draws its imagery from Victorian London's shadowy buildings and fog-bound streets. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories figure throughout, and original characters make up the Major Arcana.
