Reviews

For many years, Robin Wood has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the most beloved illustrators of fantasy literature and Pagan art. As such, the Robin Wood Tarot was an inevitable favorite among readers with an eye toward Pagan symbolism.

In this deck, she appears to attempt a complex meld of modern images, Pagan symbolism, and the well-known Rider-Waite-Smith orientation to create a very unique deck. However, Wood seems to accomplish this without alienating non-Pagans or violating the sensibilities of those who enjoy the RWS system. Many of the adaptations include quite subtle changes. For example, close examination of the battlers on the Five of Wands will reveal that the combatants’ staves form a pentacle, and the Ace of Wands contains a DNA strand, possibly indicating this cards’ propensity for representing creation and synthesis. Other changes, however, are more obvious. The Magician, now wearing an antlered headdress, somewhat resembles a shamanistic priest. The Devil is noticeably absent in the card by that name, and is replaced by a pair of slaves to materialism, each vainly trying to pull a treasure hoard to their own end of a dark tunnel. For those who find the absence of a goat-headed Baphomet in this card to be remiss, Wood makes a concession in the form of an inverted pentacle created from the chains that bind the treasure to its spot.

Printed on strong, plastic-coated board, this deck is approximately the same size as most standard Tarot decks, which facilitate shuffling for those who are accustomed to the “slightly longer than playing cards” size. Naturally, Wood’s artwork is quite vivid in color, rich in detail and—most obviously—quite dynamic in movement. Her use of color and texture also highlights the traditional elemental associations with the suits. For example each of the wands appears “fiery,” while the pentacles exude a very terrestrial quality.

The accompanying little white book (LWB) is adequate in that it provides a basic interpretation of each card and offers a fifteen, ten, and five card spread description.

In sum, it is quite obvious why the Robin Wood Tarot is a first-choice for Pagan and non-Pagan readers alike. The scenes in each card are quite lively and rich in interpretive potential. Both beginning and seasoned readers are likely to find considerable benefit from this deck.
