Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Robin Wood's interest in art was evident from an early age-she literally teethed on Prismacolor pencils.  A prolific artist, she has illustrated many book and magazine covers.  She lives in the Midwest with her husband, Michael Short.

I highly recommend this deck for beginners, and for anyone who likes to own beautiful tarot cards.

The Robin Wood Tarot is one of the few in my collection that is both admired for its artwork, and in regular use as a reading deck.

Although I no longer use this deck for my readings I still very much appreciate the pagan symbology and artwork of the cards.

There are people who collect Tarot decks for the artwork, and people who only buy decks to use. I tend to do both, and have a colection of over 30 decks. The Robin Wood Tarot is one of the few in my collection that is both admired for its artwork, and in regular use as a reading deck.
This deck is overtly Pagan, and will probably not suit anyone who likes Christian imagery in their deck. All of the images are close enough to the "standard" of the Rider-Waite Tarot, to be read without difficulty for anyone familiar with that deck. This deck uses swords=air, wands=fire symbology.
The best book on tarot reading in general to go with the deck is "Tarot, Plain and Simple", which uses illustrations from this deck. Robin Wood's own book, "The Robin Wood Tarot, The Book" is a better choice for finding out the details behind why certain cards are depicted the way they are, and is very interesting reading in its own right, but is not as clear on basic divinatory meanings, or basic Tarot reading.
Some of the notable card imagery in this deck:
The Magician: The Magician is depicted as a Wiccan High Priest, wearing a crown of antlers, but still wearing the traditional red and white and with all the familiar symbology.
The High Priestess: Unquestionably a Wiccan priestess, with her Dianic crown and pentacle necklace, she is depicted in a familiar way, with much the same symbols as would be expected, but outdoors.
The Heirophant: Robin Wood's disatisfaction with organized religion shows clearly in this card (for more details, please read her book) and is unusually negatively aspected.
All of the minor arcana are fully illustrated, and very clear.

As I do in all my reviews of tarot products, I'd like to first assure the reader that I am not what you would call a regular practicioner of the tarot. I collect and use the cards as a hobby, to provide perspective when I am facing a difficult decision, or simply to relax. When I first got involved in the tarot, it was shortly after I had finished reading the Illuminatus! trilogy by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson, and I wanted to investigate some of the things discussed therein. Since Crowley had been mentioned several times in the writing, I gravitated towards the Thoth deck, and it very nearly scared me away from the hobby entirely. While I can now appreciate some of the symbolism of the art in that deck, it's certainly a little too intimidating for the beginner to pick up and try to learn. Fortunately, I didn't give up, and the next deck that I tried was the Robin Wood. I can't say enough good things about this deck. There are two reasons why there are so many tarot decks in print--the first is that there is a group of people who collect them, and that market is apparently substantial enough to support prices. The second reason, however, is that many people have a hard time finding a deck that "speaks" to them. This deck is that one for me, and, I think, for a lot of people. The imagery in this deck is clear and the illustrations are done exquisitely. Relating to this deck shouldn't be a challenge for anybody. If even a person like me, who is so put off by the overly pagan influence in the tarot, can relate to these cards, which confess to a certain degree of pagan influence, I think just about anybody should be able to find something for themselves in this deck.Read more ›

While I personally love the Robin Wood Tarot Deck and use it for my most personal and intimate readings, I can understand how some people don't like it. It is a very Pagan deck, containing ancient Pagan and Wiccan associations. It has no Egyptian or Christian or Medieval symbolism. Here is a short list of alternate Tarot decks that contain specific symbolism:
Medieval:Tarot de Marseilles
Christian:Rider-Waite or Universal Waite
Egyptian:Alestair Croweley Thoth Tarot Deck
Native American: Santa Fe Tarot
Blessed Be!

I appreciate this deck because of its Pagan symbolism. I will admit that up front. I also appreciate the artwork, which others have criticized. I find the artwork to be quite good, and more importantly, very true to the traditional symbolism of the Tarot. As a result, this deck is pleasing to my eye and to my mind, which makes readings more fruitful.
I fail to understand the criticisms leveled by some that the art is not "dark" enough. Certainly the Ten of Swords still holds its power. The symbolism of The Devil, of course, has no horned boogeyman with ridiculous medieval overtones, and maybe that's what some of these people are referring to. However, the actual symbolism of the card, the idea of being in bondage to something that is negative, is still intact.
Overall I find this deck eminently useful and very well done. I would recommend it highly as a first deck, or as an addition to a collection. Either way it is highly commendable.
