This year for Yule, my partner gifted me a new tarot set, The Wild Unknown deck to be precise.
I love the tarot. There’s just something so mysterious and magical about these tiny little cards, each one a work of art in and of itself, that combine with the rest of the deck to create something glorious, something beyond art, that reaches down deep into the human psyche.
For a long time, my working deck has been the classic Rider-Waite-Smith deck, and for the record, it is still one of the best out there, for beginners and seasoned readers alike, however the Wild Unknown has been on my wish list for a while. And now I have it!
These are truly beautiful cards. At first glance, and as they are often described, the drawings may seem rustic, but as they draw in the eye, there is a complex beauty inherent in each and every card.
What I find particularly pleasing is that this deck links the tarot with the sacredness of nature, something that calls to my very soul.
The imagery within the card is stunning, the black line drawings enhanced with splashes of colour lend the cards a whimsical and magical air, but also enhance the meaning of the card, allowing for ease of interpretation.
All in all, I adore these cards and would highly recommend for anyone interested in the tarot.
