I’ll be honest. I’ve never entirely understood the Celtic craze in the Tarot world.

I’m late to the party on this one, I know. This deck has been out for quite some time (gosh, has it been five years?) and is wildly popular, so my writing a “review” of it will hardly add new information to the pool. But for my birthday this year, a relative sent me an […]Read more "A Review of the Wildwood Tarot"
