Amazon description:

"The Wildwood Tarot will take you on a mystical journey for answers . . . 
Look to the heart of a primeval forest where deep ancestral wisdom lies to help make sense of your world today. Based on seasonal rhythms and ancient festivals, The Wildwood Tarot gift set draws inspiration from pre-Celtic mythology and shamanic mysteries. This stunning new tarot card deck introduces us to classic forest archetypes—including the Green Man and Woman, Archer, and Blasted Oak--and explains how to use them as a meditation system, divinatory oracle, or reference. Will Worthington's powerful pagan images connect us with a long-lost world that can help us make sense of our own. So step back in time and you'll better understand where your life’s path may lead."

Card 1: Four of Wands (Bows)

The Four of Wands is the Tarot's way of letting you know that there is a surprise on the way and that you are going to be overjoyed by it.

In the present position, the Four of Wands refers to your planning a celebration, birthday or anniversary and yet, a surprise is looming for you. The fact of life remains that we often only see beauty when we are not looking for it. Although a ritual that brings people together to mark an occasion is often meant to be beautiful, it can often consist of just going through the motions. The Four of Wands reveals that you will be surprised how an ordinary get-together will suddenly become one of the most wonderful moments of your life.

Key words: Happy families, reunion, coming home, celebrations, surprises, parties, weddings, events, feeling welcome, community or family coming together, community spirit, teamwork, success, prosperity, stability, security, laying down roots, pride, self-esteem, being proud of achievements.

Card 2: 6 of Pentacles (Stones)

Did you get what you wished for but are wondering if you might have wasted your wish? Are you overseeing a lot of money but have access to little or none of it? Are there strings attached to a relationship that are affecting your material security? Did someone accuse you of being on your very first power trip? Who told you that you were giving your money to a good cause? The Six of Pentacles is a card that indicates your identification with material wants and needs may be out of balance with who you really are, whether your needs are being met and what you really want, anyway.

The Six of Pentacles is strong in the present position and can be one of the most confrontational cards in the Tarot deck. You need to be woken up from your state of denial about your relationship to the material plane in general and money specifically. This card here indicates that some forces are controlling your finances. Be it a stingy parent, an aloof partner or a credit card agreement that charges too much interest, you are stunted in your growth as a person due to limitations on your material situation. The lack of control over your own destiny is the most frustrating aspect.

From the author of this deck, John Matthews:

"This card is not just about acquiring vast wealth and plenty – it’s about what we do with it. In the current climate, it seems scarcely necessary to mention that we squander it. Just as the banks have taken our money, and played games of chance with it, that have left hundreds of people and businesses (not to mention whole countries) bankrupt; so there are countless examples in the world of people and institutions squandering the riches given us by the earth.
Another meaning for this card could be: everything its place; everything working according to its kind. Here is the original image we intended for the card, though in the end it was changed because it did not fit so well with the rest of the suite:
We see the world as if though the faceted eye of a fly. In each facet is a different image. Six are of carved jewels, each a different type, each one dug out of the earth. The rest show insects; bees, ants, flies, worms - each one busy about its life.” (Read more here.)
