Never before have I done a deck interview spread with a new tarot deck. But yesterday, with this deck it felt like it was the appropriate thing to do. In that way we would get formally introduced to each other. Although I know it’s just a pack of 78 cards, it feels like there´s an old energy surrounding this deck. It’s making me a little bit hesitant to approach it; to work with it. I’m not that overly sensitive, so this is rather new for me and I am wondering: who am I kidding? That’s why I decided to do the deck interview. I've mixed up some the other interview spreads that I've found online. These are the questions for my deck and the cards that I've drawn:
|Wildwood Tarot deck interview|

The Wheel - I am the loom of the Wildwood and I will teach you how to weave
2. What is your most important characteristic?
Eight of arrows - I have enough courage and dedication to keep going even when our thoughts collide and dilemma’s arise. I will keep my torch burning hoping for better times.
3. What are you going to teach me?
The Gardian - I will show you how to face your fears and how to enter the dark caverns of your mind.

Four of vessels – beware of boredom and disenchantment after the first rush of infatuation . We’ll strive to keep things fresh and alive and search for new challenges.
7. Is there anything else you would like to tell me about yourself?
Queen of vessels – My child I will guide you with love through the Wildwood and I’ll ask you to dedicate yourself with an honest and open mind to our journey together
This was a very deep experience. I just sat at my table watching my cards and felt really connected to whatever it was I felt. For some cards I had to look up additional information in the guide book but the overall message was very clear… I had to laugh about the gift of respect this deck wants from me. I was right about that J
Also the Fox of bows has given an unexpected touch to this reading. “Innovating and clever” wasn't what I had in mind for this deck. It has added an unknown spark of wit to it.
This reading has been very helpful to get the edge of our first real encounter and we’ll see where we’ll go from here.
