Tarot Decks With Extra Suits
Tarot decks that have more than the usual four suits in the minor arcana.
The King's Journey Tarot is based on the fool's journey of spiritual growth as he progresses through the trumps, and draws on alchemy, spirituality and the elements. There are 94 cards in this deck, including the normal 78 and an extra Spirit suit.
The Deva Tarot is a 93-card set, with a whole extra suit, Triax. The Deva Tarot cards show somewhat Thoth-inspired paintings, surrounded by a thick greyish border and multi-lingual titles.
The Fifth Tarot is designed to illustrate the emerging cosmic energies of the fifth dimension. It brings the 'lost' suit - representing the element ether - back to tarot. The art on the 92 cards - 22 majors and 70 minors - is finely drawn and multi-dimensional.
It's unfortunate this pretty deck is no longer in print, with its bright and highly coloured art. The Healing Tarot incorporates images from all races and religions, and has two extra suits, Feathers and Pipes.
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 Silicon Dawn is an original and modern deck of vivid colours, science fiction imagery and kinetic shapes. There are 97 cards in the deck, including extra majors, extra suit cards, and a new partial suit of the Void. It's an unconventional deck that expands the boundaries of tarot.
