We love this gorgeous new deck by New York Times best-selling author Kim Krans, creator of The Wild Unknown Tarot! The Wild Unknown: Archetypes deck is as deep and insightful as her previous work, and makes a daring leap to join the ranks of a very few round decks, such as the timeless, Goddess-inspired Motherpeace Tarot.
In this box set, Kim Krans illuminates the revelatory power of archetypes—the ancient, universal symbols that have endured across time and cultures and reside deep in our shared psyche.
Illustrated in her unmistakable “Wild Unknown” style, it fosters a profound understanding of our complex personalities, behaviors, and tendencies.
Dive into the Archetypes Deck
The Wild Unknown Archetypes deck includes 78 gorgeous circular oracle cards divided into four suits: The Selves, The Places, The Tools, and The Initiations as well as an in-depth guidebook.
Each archetype has been carefully selected for its symbolic potency and the lesson at the core of its nature, such as The Poet, representative of deep emotional creativity and the drive to find our truth, and The Vision, which symbolizes the lifelong journey to rediscover our destiny.
Accompanying the deck is a 224-page hand-lettered, fully illustrated guidebook written and designed by Krans, which details the meaning behind each card and offers clear, grounded explanations of the many spreads, practices, and concepts that power the Archetypes deck.
