The Wildwood Tarot is a reconception of The Greenwood Tarot, which was published in 1996 by Thorsons. The Wildwood Tarot  draws inspiration from pre-Celtic mythology and shamanic mysteries including the Green Man and Woman.

While the names of the Major Arcana cards differ from those in the RWS, many of the cards images are similar to the RWS Majors:

0 - The Wanderer
1 - The Shaman
2 - The Seer
3 - The Green Woman
4 - The Green Man
5 - The Ancestor
6 - The Forest Lovers
7 - The Archer
8 - The Stag
9 - The Hooded Man
10 - The Wheel
11 - The Woodward
12 - The Mirror
13 - The Journey
14 - Balance
15 - The Guardian
16 - The Blasted Oak
17 - The Pole Star
18 - The Moon on Water
19 - The Sun of Life
20 - The Great Bear
21 - The World Tree

The suits are Arrows (Swords/Air/Spring), Bows (Wands/Fire/Summer), Stones (Pentacles/Earth/Winter) and Vessels (Cups/Water/Autumn). The Court Cards, King, Queen, Knight and Page of each suit are animals.  The subtitle for each Court Card is the name of the animal pictured on the card. The Ace through Ten of each suit are also given subtitles.

The reversible backs of the cards are  forest green with a thin white border and tiny copyright attributions.
