This oracle was created in 1990 as the basis for our Walkers Between Worlds courses, and is now available as an ancestral oracle where you can ask the ancient ones and forerunners to guide your questions and bring advice. The 40 cards can also be used for ancestral healing rituals and meditation. Each of the 8 divinities and the 32 Celtic ancestors form a council of help and wisdom that can bring resourceful insights to your issues and questions. Sit in meditation and learn from your deep ancestors.
     
The Beowulf Oracle offers a guide through a world where belief in the powers and forces that shape our lives is ever present.  The kings and queens, heroes and heroines, monsters and betrayers of the poem will act as guides and symbols for the seeker.  The imagery and the quotations from the poem and other original sources will highlight an overwhelming belief in Fate. The stunning art by Joe Machine makes this an unforgettable Oracle which we think will be much loved by all.  PUBLISHED LATE NOVEMBER AWAITING DELIVERIES OF STOCK
     
Drawing upon the rich heritage of art, lore and the complex courtly world of the Byzantine Empire, this sparkling new tarot reflects the extraordinary, unique artistic style, often depicted in gleaming gold and intricate mosaic, which flourished under the rule of the Byzantine Emperors from the 4th to the 15th centuries. The presence of so many archetypal figures and roles within the imperial court suggests a link between the oldest forms of the tarot and the wisdom that flourished at the time within the confines of this part of the Classical world.

This tarot is based on one of the most enigmatic, and fascinating spiritual groups. During the Middle Ages the unorthodox beliefs of the Cathars caused them to be branded heretics, and mercilessly persecuted during a crusade launched in 1179. They were eradicated and yet their ideas and beliefs – with tantalizing links to the Grail legend – remain embedded in Western consciousness. They continue to fascinate us to this day, and here become the perfect content for a stunning new deck. This tarot has illustrated minors with the suits of Shields, Swords, Love and Wisdom representing the Four Books of Truth, as well as an array of people associated with the Cathar world upon the court cards. With several new spreads, this tarot reveals the inner world of the Cathars.
     
This 42-card oracle is based on the ancient Irish story of the Voyage of Maelduin, translated by Caitlín Matthews. It is completely rewritten. The island locationsof Maelduin’s voyage form the route toward the Blessed Isles that lie west of Ireland; each island reveals the wonders and challenges as he sails nearer to the heart of the Celtic Otherworld. This oracle gives the soul opportunities to purify, clarify, and refocus. Filled with wonders, terrors, and transformational experiences, each island represents a staging post on the reader’s own voyage to self-discovery. As the islands reveal gifts &  resources for the human condition, solutions and strategies for unknotting life’s tangles may be found. Use to cards to  divine the path ahead as a guide to the soul's direction, as a way of meditation for personal and environmental healing, and as a Book of the Dead for the dying. This oracle offers a grown-up method of divination and meditation, based on an ancient northwestern European tradition.  Printed in Jan 23.
     
Animal helpers in their spirit form act as guides and allies to the shaman’s journeys to the Otherworld. Celtic Totem Animals comes with a link to a recording of shamanic drumming by Caitlín Matthews, a set of animal cards and 160pp. book revealing  the Celtic tradition of animal lore relating to these beings, ranging from the great story of Culhwch & Olwen from the WelshMabinogioncycle, to stories relating to such famous creatures as the One-Eyed Salmon of Assaroe to the wise and all-knowing Hawk of Achill, and the powerful Eagle of Leac. In each case these stories show the animals to be cleverer, more cunning, or braver then their human counterparts. This book with a cut-out card set includes methods of working with and learning from these magical beings in accordance with Shamanic tradition. Of interest to all who love and care about things Celtic, animal tales, magical story-telling and shamanism.
     
For all who love shamanism and the Celtic worlds, this 40 card set depicts the three realms of the otherworld and its inhabitants: animals, divinities, places, objects. The cards can be used for meditation, as journeying gateways or destinations, as well as for divination. In this new edition, the original art of Chesca Potter is restored to new life again.

Leonardo da Vinci is universally acknowledged as a prophetic visionary, who envisioned and created blueprints for many ideas and artefacts now taken for granted in the modern world. The Da Vinci Enigma Tarot is faithful to his vision, drawing on his notebooks, drawings, and ideas. Lavishly illustrated with his artwork, the deck creates a portable notebook containing the macrocosm (Major cards), the greater archetypal world, and the microcosm (Minor cards), the lesser manifest world of everyday. Using da Vinci’s own insights, the accompanying book enables the reader to use the deck to discover fresh ways of looking at personal experience, using a design that he created. Book & 78 cards in a box.
     
The 36 card Daveluy Lenormand dates from the mid 19th century, created by the great card makers, Daveluy of Belgium. These cards are very clear to read, coming with image, playing card inset and French text. It was made by a process of chromo-lithography, with bright colours, now restored to new life from an original deck by Lauren Forestall. The cards come with a booklet giving the outline of the deck, a list of meanings and translated text from the cards.

T25 The GOBLIN MARKET TAROT by John Matthews is based upon the poem by Christina Rossetti, this tarot is cheerfully illustrated by our good friend the internationally-known artist, Charles Newington, who is also the creator of the Folkstone White Horse that greets travellers on the hillside facing the sea at Dover.  The Goblins of the Market are not the wish-fulfilling clan of the Faery world, but far more mischievous and challenging, as the two sisters of the poem discover. Boxed with 80 cards. SEE ALSO R7 Goblin Market Music by Julian Littman in RECORDINGS
     
The Grail legend is one of the most famous mysteries the world has ever known. This 78-card Tarot deck with spectacular Renaissance-style art relates to the quest for this sacred Christian relic and connects it to our desire to understand the puzzles within our own lives. Characters drawn from Grail history, as well as the Knights Templar, guide the seeker on the path. The suits are represented by the four Grail Hallows: Stone, Sword, Lance, and Vessel. Discover the symbolism and stories of the Grail as a universal and potent representation of the search for truth, part of your own spiritual quest. The cards when laid edge to edge create a tableau in each suit and in the Major Arcana: a procession of the Grail indeed!
     
In 1994 a researcher working in the Italian National Library in Rome discovered a manuscript containing 80 mysterious paintings, believed to have been devised by the mysterious prophet Michael de Nostredame, better known as Nostradamus. Drawing upon the visionary insights gleaned from his prophetic writings and visions, this tarot has been brought to fruition by two modern experts and its secrets revealed for the first time. A deck which incorporates Nostradamus' own images and visions.
     
This unusual oracle was written by Caitlín & John Matthews with their son when he was a teenager and is intended for the age-group 12-18. It deals responsibly and supportively with the kinds of divinatory questions asked by most teenagers and young people, as well as being fun to use alone or with friends. Whether the issue is about love, confidence, style-awareness or school, the Oracle makes a fantastic and affordable gift for young people.

‘I was really impressed with the imagination and great ideas that have gone into this unusual teen book. A good fun read to read along or with your friends. – Angela Bartram

The myths behind the figure Robin Hood are universal and amongst the oldest in the world. Although the stories and ballads are medieval, they contain material from a much earlier time, including the ancient myths of the vegetation gods and the Green Man, combined with ideas of the Wildman and the almost mythic status accorded to outlaws in the Middle Ages. The world of the greenwood is a stage upon which virtually every aspect of human experience is to be found. The adventures and heroic deeds of the outlaw band, bound together in eternal fellowship, along with the adversaries they encounter, both human and magical, make their paths one that speaks to everyone who encounters them. The new deck, illustrated by premier artist Yvonne Gilbert, captures the myth and mystery of the Wildwood for all. 
 
     

The Spirit of Nature Oracle, by John Matthews, with 25 cards by Will Worthington (of The Druid Animal Oracle) draws upon the wisdom of the trees and ogham lore.  Each of the cards represents one of the ogham trees and is painted in such a way as to look alive and watching the diviner.  There are certainly real tree spirits looking out of the cards! The accompanying book draws upon the lore of the trees and the wisdom of the Green Man.

Roll up, roll up and see the amazing Steampunk Tarot: Gods of the Machine! We present the 22 Gods of the Machine, whose primal impulses beat out the determining rhythm of life in the Steampunk Imperium. From the Technomage and the Aviatrix to Spring Heeled Jack and The Moon Voyage, these Gods of the Machine are the main attractions in the Theatre of the Mysteries. The fourfold leagues of Airships, Engines, Submersibles and Leviathans surround them, transmitting their life-navigating messages through a further 56 cards across time and space where metaphysics and technology meet in a parallel world.

THESE ARE THE VERY LAST COPIES
     
Originally published in 1939 by Francis Rolt Wheeler and Christian Loring, this tarot barely saw the light of day before the fall of France removed it from the face of the earth. Caitlín has translated and edited the text,  with additions, while Wil Kinghan has restored the images.  The British writer Francis Rolt Wheeler edited the esoteric journal L’Astrosophie from 1929-1958 and was a leading light in the esoteric world. Tarot Médiéval is an esoteric tarot, based in the school of Oswald Wirth: it sees the tarot as an unfolding of the initiate’s path in a medieval context.   The art is very romantic, redolent of the quest. Caitlín has written further material to open up this rare tarot, giving it its magical context.

​Published in May 2023
     
With an accompanying small version of the Waite-Smith Tarot, this large book shows  how to spread the diving mat wider so we can use our tarot in a more accountable way, including our environment and the strange times through which we are living, when nothing can be relied upon to remain unchanged. By pro-actively working with the world, in and out of time, we ourselves become the time-changers of the title, able to navigate a way between the unknown shoals before us for ourselves, our community and issues affecting the whole world. Each card meaning offers a variety of possibilities, depending on for which we are reading. It comes with many new ways of working systemically in community, as well as giving innovative ways of using your cards.
     
This beautifully illustrated double Tarot deck allows readers to explore both sides of a question at once, looking at the Shadow (instinctive, inner world, the unknown) and the Light (rational, outer world, the known). The Tarot of Light and Shadow presents a new multi-layered way of working with the Tarot: using two decks to explore the Shadow and Light sides of any questions at once. In fact, they can be seen not as two separate decks but as one deck appearing in two dimensions.  Answers come both from within and without. Inner influences as well as outer affect our choices and may dictate our concerns. When we face a problem or issue for which we turn to the Tarot for advice, there are many different ways to approach the query. The Shadow deck gives you insight into your inner world, your subconscious, your instinct and what is not yet in the light of your consciousness, while the Light deck reflects the the outer world, the rational and what is already known about an issue. This ground-breaking two-deck system allows the reader to explore both sides of such questions at once, and to find the best way forward in the blending of both answers.

Wild Magic by Mark Ryan & John Matthews
   
                         
   
Based on the seasonal rhythms and festivals of the ancient year, The Wildwood Tarot draws its inspiration from pre-Celtic mythology and shamanic mysteries, placing mystical archetypes into a nature-based system rich in shamanic wisdom and forest lore.The 160-page book comes with a 78 beautifully illustrated tarot cards.​  
NOTE: ALL our copies of Wildwood Tarot are now free of the printing error that afflicted the last print run. OCT 22
 
     
This rare reproduction, 46 card, non-standard Lenormand pack was made in 1855 Vienna. While it includes many familiar images from the standard Lenormand deck, it has additional cards with which we are not familiar: the Weeping Woman, the Rock, the Knight with Sword, the Steep Road, the Man Clenching his Fist and the delightfully named Old Coffee Sister. These expressive cards were hand painted. The original 60 page book accompanying the Zauberkarten has been translated here by Helen Riding and edited with commentary and additional material by Caitlín Matthews as a printed book. This lists the 46 cards and their meanings, with two different methods of reading, a list of card combinations and an appendix giving French and German playing card keywords.
     
Untold Tarot presents historic styles of reading little known in the modern era. It teaches traditional ways of reading used for pre-twentieth-century decks, drawing upon older cartomantic arts such as blending and pairing cards, reading lines, and following "line of sight" to piece together untold stories according to the direction in which the characters are facing. Extensively illustrated with practical examples.
     
Wild Magic invokes the power of the Wildwood, of the Green Man and Green Woman, of the living archetypes of the forest such as Herne the Hunter and Robin-i-the-Hood. It takes us across time to the pre-Celtic world of the forest that once cloaked much of the world, where primal forces, cloaked in the shape of animal, bird and fish roamed free and opened doorways into the primal otherworld of the Ancestors. With chapters on the Lore of the Wild, ways to work around the archetypal Wheel of the Year, shamanic methods of exploring the wild, and mediations designed to enable powerful, personal encounters with Wildwood archetypes.
