The Greenwood Tarot - Mark Ryan  & Chesca Potter
Pre-Celtic Shamanism of the Mythic Forest
RARE -1996

The Greenwood Tarot is one of the rarest tarot deck sets. It is a much sought after, and highly regarded tarot deck. It is now out of print, and according to the authors, it will not be brought back into print.

"First published in 1996 by Thorsons The Greenwood Tarot is a deck and book set that is a collaborative effort from the artist Chesca Potter and the actor/writer Mark Ryan. As a deck, it announces itself as '...a journey of exploration into the symbolism and legend of the mythic forest.' As a system, it draws upon the history, archaeology, and mythology of Europe to align the cards of the tarot with the Wheel of the Year, the changing of the seasons as they pass through the solstice and the equinox points and through the four Celtic fire festivals of Imbolc, Beltane, Lammas, and Samhain."

This set includes the deck of tarot cards (themed around pre-Celtic/shamanistic/season/mystical forests), a paperback instruction book with 180 pages, a year wheel 9printed on paper) and card tray with outer sleeve.

I was a reader and mentor for the American Tarot Association. I purchased these cards from Chesca Potter & Mark Ryan. The cards in this deck are mint (I never used them in any readings). The book has minor signs of fraying around the edges and a small fold on the top corner (I did use the book for study). The pages of the book are like new. The year wheel is unmarked and intact (opened twice). There are small rips & creases on the internal card tray, but it is still structurally, fully intact. The outer card sleeve is also intact, with just light fraying to the edges/corners. Please see photos.
