From the author of Floriography comes a gorgeously illustrated oracle deck and guidebook inspired by the magic of woodland flora and fauna. Drawing on mythology, folklore, and literature, each card in the Woodland Wardens deck features an animal-plant pairing accompanied by a distinct and thoughtful message: the hare and the oak; the finch and the peach; the hawk and the thistle. Each unique combination, brought to life in artist Jessica Roux’s detailed, historically evocative style, transports seekers to another time and place, offering insight, guidance, and an invitation to reflect on the natural world.

Using this deck brings me immense comfort. Whenever I seek a gentle and kind message, it never fails to deliver. The captivating illustrations align perfectly with my personal preferences, and each card unveils a delightful surprise that warms my heart.
I have come to believe that my chosen deity holds a special fondness for this deck. Whenever I read for my friends, the accuracy and uplifting messages it provides are truly remarkable. Even without disclosing specific details about their questions, my friends are pleasantly surprised and find deep resonance with the cards.
Woodland Wardens introduces us to a captivating array of rarely-seen animals, such as the Finch (Romance), the Caiman (Dreams), the Marten (Mischief), and many others. The incorporation of plants alongside these animals serves to deepen the correlation between their symbolism and the divine messages they convey. With a total of 52 cards, each featuring a unique pairing of an animal and a plant, the deck offers a rich tapestry of wisdom and guidance.
However, one significant drawback is the card stock, which unfortunately chips too easily during the initial shuffling. These noticeable imperfections detract from the overall user experience, which is a shame considering my genuine adoration for the entire set and its representation. I would gladly pay a premium for a sturdier card deck that would stand the test of time.
In conclusion, while I hold great affection for the Woodland Wardens deck and its evocative portrayal, I urge the creators to address and rectify the issue with the card stock. Investing in a higher quality material would undoubtedly enhance the longevity and enjoyment of this truly exceptional oracle deck.
