Masculine Tarot Decks
Masculine tarot decks, designed especially for men or best for a male audience.
The Arcus Arcanum Tarot is a more male-oriented deck, and has brightly coloured, scenic comic-book type artwork. It uses the typical suits of cups, wands, swords and disks.
The Everyman Tarot is a male-centric 78-card tarot created with men in mind. The familiar Rider-Waite imagery has been redrawn to reflect how modern men experience life and relate to the world around them. Each suit is associated with a male character: Mr Buttondown as the Swords, Mr Athletic as Cups, Mr Bear as Wands, and the deck designer himself appears in Pentacles.
The Gay Tarot focuses on the experience and identity of homosexual men. While men are featured as all the major figures, women are not excluded. The 78 images are fully illustrated, with people are of all ethnicities, shapes and sizes and in modern, contemporary settings.
The Gods and Titans Oracle is one of the relatively few male-oriented tarot or oracle decks around. The 36 cards feature powerful gods and deities from the ages - Osiris, Thor, Ganesha and many more.
The Initiatory Tarot of the Golden Dawn has been created from documents from the occult group. The deck artist was without any knowledge of their previous decks, so the result is comic-book style illustrations with familiar elements in new interpretations.
Sol Invictus: The God Tarot is a deck that seeks to explore the many faces of the Divine Masculine through the stories of Gods, heroes, and historical men throughout the ages. Both Majors and Minors are fully illustrated, conveying the meanings of the cards as well as the myths of each particular deity/figure. The Court Cards have been renamed Awakening (Page), Quester (Knight), Nurturer (Queen), and Master (King) to better fit the deck's God-oriented theme.
The Tarot D: Didactic Tarot is the culmination of a ten year exploration of tarot symbolism and creativity. The artwork is powerful: highly detailed, comic-book like and masculine in feel. The deck has 102 cards, including an extra 'Pause' suit and two extras in each suit. The companion book by the artist explains the complete mythology and symbolism behind each card.
The Tarot of the Holy Grail is inspired by the legends of the Grail, the Knights Templar, and the Crusades. It's a very masculine deck of war and religion, and women appear infrequently.
