I have been looking for an appealing Celtic, Earth themed tarot deck for some time and have finally found it in the Druid Craft Tarot Deck.  I will say at the outset that this deck does have a certain amount of full frontal nudity so it may not be the best deck for psychic fairs or appropriate for all clients even in a private setting.  For me, however, it is a wonderful deck for personal readings and learning learning Celtic myths and symbols (continued below).


As can be seen in the images above each card is a stand alone work of art. Symbolic elements abound and every card invites a question.  Is the hen in the Magician card a reference to Cerridwen?  Why does a great tree stand before the crossed swords of the Two of Swords? Does the hare and bare tree in the Queen of Pentacles suggest the rebirth of early spring?  Is the Ace of Swords Excalibur?

The skies in the deck are amazing and the detailed images impressive  While the cards above may not be the best example, I particularly enjoy the way the artist has included highly representational and identifiable plants, trees and flowers in his imagery - a great inclusion for an earth based deck!  This is a type of symbolism I have not explored and I'm looking forward to doing so in the future.

Overall, the traditional references in this deck are fascinating, the artwork and color outstanding, the elemental associations strong and the images close enough to the RWS to be easily readable for most.  I highly recommend it!

  1. Thank you for reviewing the DruidCraft Tarot! I have to agree with you, it's beautiful and I think I will be exploring it for a long time to come. The card stock on mine was easily scraped and such, so I bought a second one just to keep wrapped up.

    1. Hi Rachel. You're very welcome! It's a great deck, isn't it? Mine has worn a bit as well. I think I may follow you're lead and buy a back up when I have a little extra cash!
