Tarot Tuesday- Dark Wood Tarot by Sasha Graham with Art by Abigail Larson


Entering the Wood Is Easy. Leaving Is a Different Matter. How Will You Emerge?

Dare to enter the dark wood and discover your shadow self with this enthralling Rider-Waite-Smith-style deck. 

As you take on the role of a witch entering the wood, each magnificent card becomes a vision of deep wisdom that guides you to a richer understanding of yourself. Examine secret desires and shadowy dreams. 

Explore the unknown recesses of your psyche. This captivating deck and full-color companion book lead you through the darkness and into the light that reflects your hidden talents and personal power.

The Dark Wood Tarot is my go-to deck when I need answers about myself and my life.  

One- because Abigail Larson is my FAVORITE artist and the images on these cards really speak to me. 

And Two because this is a shadow deck- from Sasha Graham's website:

"The Dark Wood Tarot replaces traditional reversals with Shadow Meanings. Shadow Meanings are not the opposite of the card's meaning, rather, they reflects us embodying the darkest qualities of card. Why? It creates an opportunity to examine areas of your personality you might normally skip over or ignore in a reading or in life. Why bother? Shadow work keeps us ON POINT in our tarot readings. We come to the cards to discover the things we don't know. Shadow Work sheds the light of consciousness in those places we are unaware of. Once we acknowledge our hidden, dark (often creative and empowering) tendencies and behaviors, we become free. We stop projecting fear and desire onto others. We accept and become honest with our entire self, not just the shiny bright part, and thus become fuller and more compassionate versions of ourselves."

This deck never steers me wrong, though it does tend to slap me hard sometimes, Mainly when I need a wake-up call. 

This is my personal deck and I only use it for readings for myself. We've bonded and she speaks to me, telling me what I need to hear, even if I don't want to hear it.
