I've been doing a lot of work with the Robin Wood of late, and it's...capricious.  It takes a great delight in telling me things that aren't happening and making me work to infer from that what is happening.  I like the challenge, but sometimes it annoys me into just asking the good old Universal Waite.

It's also my prime deck when I do Tarot.

I've actually found it to be relatively clear cut when I do readings, except that it's often looking a layer further in or out than I thought I was looking at. (So it may be looking at a deeper layer of issue, or at further-out ripple effects from the thing I'm asking about, not the most direct "what happens next" sort of thing.)

I normally use a very straightforward Celtic Cross layout with it: I've had very mixed results with other layouts. (The one Marilyn suggested else-thread worked really well for me, though that's also based on a Celtic Cross)

One thing that really helped me with it (besides spending a couple of years using it periodically, but not relying on it, so to speak) was working through her book (not the little booklet, the actual book) on it - I found her explanations of small details in her images really helpful, even when I already knew the general meaning of the card.

(As a note: I don't generally ask it intensely practical stuff. Job related stuff, sometimes, but more things like "what do I need to focus on to get my career going in the direction I want it to." rather than "Do I take X job?")
