Decks Published by Lo Scarabeo


2012: Tarot of Ascension   

2012: Tarot of Ascension has been designed as a tool for spiritual growth and evolution. It has images set in an imaginary medieval setting, with concealed new age symbols and secrets. The minors have been altered to better reflect the seeker's upward path, with some traditionally negative cards becoming more positive.





African American Tarot   

The African American Tarot is a strong and vibrantly coloured deck of scenes and imagery of African and Afro-American culture, animals and art. According to the booklet, each card is linked with an important deity, character or location in African-American history.





Afro-Brazilian Tarot   

The Afro-Brazilian Tarot is dedicated to the divinities of the African Yoruban and Brazilian Candomble religions, and combines these and Santeria with the archetypes of tarot.





Ancient Italian Tarot   

The Ancient Italian Tarot shows artwork in a medieval Italian style. The card scenes are of a similar style as the 1JJ Swiss Tarot but with more detail and muted colour. Card titling is small and in Italian only.





Ancient Minchiate Etruria Tarot   

An early (eighteenth century) tarot deck with some unusual features. The Ancient Minchiate Etruria Tarot has 41 major arcana cards, which include astrological signs, the four virtues, and four elements, but not a high priestess/popess.





Ancient Tarot of Marseilles   

The Ancient Tarot of Marseilles is a precise reproduction of the historic Tarot de Marseilles created in 1760 by Nicholas Conver. This version is coloured with blocks of yellow, red, green and blue.





Ancient Tarots of Bologna   

The Ancient Tarots of Bologna is a historical reproduction of an deck from 1780, created in Bologna, Italy. It is Italian but a Marseilles style deck, and is coloured in deep blues, faded greens and oranges.





Ancient Tarots of Liguria-Piedmont   

The Ancient Tarots of Liguria-Piedmont is a reproduction of a historical Marseilles-style deck from the the northern Italian region of Piedmont. The original deck was published in 1860.





Ancient Tarots of Lombardy   

Another historical deck from Lo Scarabeo, the Ancient Tarots of Lombardy cards were originally published in 1810. The majors and court cards are in a neoclassical artistic style, the minor arcana are pip cards.





Angel Voices Oracle   

A pretty, tidy 80-card oracle based on the traditional Christian guardian angels and archangels. The Angel Voices Oracle also incorporates astrological associations, shown by the colour-coding of the angels' backgrounds and clothing.





Art Nouveau Oracle   

The Art Nouveau Oracle is illustrated in a romantic, watercolour art nouveau style, and is very similar visually to the Tarot Art Nouveau. The deck itself is based on the Lenormand pattern and has 36 cards.





Astrological Oracle   

The Astrological Oracle has lush illustrations in an art nouveau style by Antonella Castelli. The 22 cards picture the astrological signs, as well the sun, moon, and planets as represented by Roman deities.





Avalon Tarot   

The Avalon Tarot is an Arthurian-themed tarot, but set in a fantasy-medieval world. The artwork is strongly coloured and reminiscent of comic books.





Bach Flower Inspirational Cards   

The Bach Flower Inspirational Cards has 38 lovely art nouveau, floral cards, each linked with a specific Bach Flower Essence. The essences help with spiritual or emotional unbalances.





Black Cats Tarot   

The Black Cats Tarot is another feline-inspired deck, this one focusing on the magical black cat. The 78 cards mix fantasy and reality in its image of human-like black cats.





Book of Shadows Tarot   

The Book of Shadows Tarot is the first volume in a two volume deck set conceptualised by tarot expert, Barbara Moore. This is the 'as above' deck, focusing on universal and divine energies, while the second will be 'so below' and concentrate on everyday human experiences.





Book of Shadows Tarot: Volume 2   

This Book of Shadows Tarot is the second deck in the unique two volume Book of Shadows kit. This is the 'So Below' deck, concentrating on the magical energies that surround us in everyday life.





Book of Thoth Etteilla Tarot   

The Book of Thoth Etteilla Tarot is a reproduction of a nineteenth century tarot deck based on the deck created by Etteilla, who was the first to create a deck solely for divinatory use.





Bosch Tarots   

Strikingly vibrant, the Bosch Tarot deck depicts humans, monsters, and visions as Tarot cards. The art style is modelled on that of Dutch artist Hieronymous Bosch and has elements from his paintings. Fascinating.





Bruegel Tarot   

Inspired by the rich and detailed artistic style of Flemish painter, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, these cards show the daily life of the medieval peasant in lively fashion. It's a rather more earthy Tarot than the Giotto Tarot by the same author - this one features drunk peasants!





Cards of Wellbeing   

The Cards of Wellbeing is a very odd oracle linked to crystals, the stars and Tibetan wisdom. The illustrations are very simple crystal or star images, and the cards have a very negative bent - a full third of the cards bely the title of being cards of 'wellbeing'.





Cats Inspirational Oracle   

The Cats Inspirational Oracle has 32 different breeds of cats on its 32 cards. The cards have true-to-life illustrations of each breed, and link their typical behaviour with a card keyword: the Turkish Van is swimming (Boldness), the Burmese seeking attention (Attention), the Maine Coon hunting (Pursue). The set comes with a companion book by Barbara Moore.





Ceccoli Tarot   

The Ceccoli Tarot is an upcoming deck from Lo Scarabeo, illustrated by Nicoletta Ceccoli, an artist from San Marino. Her art has an ethereal, haunting story book quality. The deck is out in mid 2014.





Celtic Tarot   

The Celtic Tarot from Lo Scarabeo is illustrated by two different authors in comic-book style art. Gaudenzi created the majors, with images of Celtic legends and mythology; Tenuta created the minors. Each suit is linked to a people of Ireland - Fomori, Fianna, Ulaid and Tuatha de Danann.





Centenary Special Rider-Waite Tarot   

The edition of the Rider-Waite Tarot has been published in honour of the centennial anniversary of the original Waite-Smith deck. This special edition has been published by Lo Scarabeo and has their typical multi-lingual borders surrounding the familiar images by Pamela Colman-Smith.





Children Tarot   

The Children Tarot has youthful and naive drawings in pastel that are for "participating in the fairy tale of life". The majors are cute and happy and the minors have pip-style arrangements with small illustrations included as well.





China Tarot   

The China Tarot is a re-release of the Chinese-published Der-Jen Tarot by Lo Scarabeo. The majors are rather beautiful atmospheric paintings, and the minors are similiar in feel but feature Chinese suit emblems instead of illustrated scenes.





Circle of Life Tarot   

The Circle of Life Tarot is a round deck, so chosen to emphasise the concepts of circularity and cycles in life. The 78 unique illustrations depart from the usual symbolism, and are unconventional and imaginative Tarot journey.





Classic Tarot   

The Classic Tarot is a reproduction of a Milanese deck, dated 1835. The art is pen-and-ink and somewhat unusually coloured in bright oranges, lime greens and pinks but is the overall effect is harmonious.





Comparative Tarot   

Not for beginners, this is a tarot study tool created to illustrate Valerie Sims' Comparative Tarot reading method. Images of four different decks are depicted on each card - the Universal Tarot, Tarot of the Origins, Tarot of Marseilles, and Tarot of the Sphynx.





Contemplative Tarot   

The Contemplative Tarot is a thoughtful deck influenced by the works of philosopher P.D. Ouspensky. It has Pagan-inspired, lifelike, three- dimensional major arcana cards, while the minor arcana owe their basis to the el Gran Tarot Esoterico and are in a flatter, less-detailed artistic style.





Corto Maltese Tarot   

The Corto Maltese Tarot is about a comic book character of the same name, by artist Hugo Pratt. Corto is an adventurer and sailor and the cards illustrate scenes, places and personalities that he encounters. The corresponding card in the Marseille style is also repeated in the four corners of the pale aqua border.





Crystal Tarots   

The Crystal Tarots has multi-coloured cards with an art nouveau and stained glass look. The This is the 78 card edition, which was first published as a 22-card art deck, the Tarocchi di Vetro. The minors in the 78-card edition are a re-working of card designs originally by Eudes Picards.





Da Vinci Tarot   

An art tarot in homage to the great Renaissance painter and inventor, Leonardo da Vinci. The images in the Da Vinci Tarot are mostly inspired by Leonardo's art, but do feature some of his well-known pieces. First published as the Leonardo aa Vinci Tarot a stand-alone deck, it's now available as the Da Vinci Tarot kit with a book by Mark McElroy.

The deck is complete with an instructional booklet and now published by Lo Scarabeo.

Dark Angels Tarot   

The Dark Angels Tarot is a gothic tarot focusing on heaven's outcast angels. "Achingly beautiful, mysterious, and undoubtedly wise, these unearthly creatures have much to teach us of our own shadow selves."





Dark Fairytale Tarot   

The Dark Fairytale Tarot is an exploration of the darker side of the world of the fae. It takes elements of both the Rider-Waite and Thoth foundations and blends them with lifelike medieval fantasy imagery.





Dark Grimoire Tarot   

The Dark Grimoire Tarot takes its inspiration from magical texts of fiction and legend - the Necronomicon and other grimoires. The 78 cards have non-traditional scenes of horror and nightmare. Often strange, they're also sometimes disturbing, particularly in the literal Hanged Man.





Decameron Tarot   

The Decameron Tarot is for adults only. It aims to show love without mystery, and its 78 cards are fully illustrated with men and woman in many and various sexual positions.





Dragons Tarot   

The Dragons Tarot features mythical dragons, earthly dinosaurs and feathered serpents from all cultures, myths and eras in its very colourful and useable 78 cards. Not to be confused with the other Dragon Tarot.





Dream Cards   

The Dream Cards, while there are 78 of them, aren't a tarot deck but a stand-alone, intuitive reading deck. The artwork is a fantasy of surreal landscapes and scenes, with plenty to spark the imagination.





Dream Enchantress Tarot   

The Dream Enchantress Tarot is from the same artist who created the Secret Tarot. It's a fantasy, mysterious, feminine deck, and with minimal black borders to set off the luminous images.





Egyptian Tarot Grand Trumps   

The Egyptian Tarot Grand Trumps is a large-size, majors (or trumps) only, edition of Silvana Alasia's 78-card deck from Lo Scarabeo. The art has an authentic Egyptian look, painted in tempera on a papyrus background.





Elemental Tarot

Etruscan Tarot   

The Etruscan Tarot is a historically-themed art deck, based on the culture, civilisation, and mystical beliefs of the ancient Etruscans, a pre-Roman tribe who lived in what is now modern day Italy.





Fairy Lights Tarot   

The Fairy Lights Tarot has 78 imaginative fantasy cards, created from 39 original paintings - each card is half of a bigger picture. The deck is from the same artist as the Tarot of the Secret Forest.





Fairy Tarots   

A very cute Italian deck with a strong fantasy influence, the Fairy Tarots cards show enchanting scenes of playful fairies and forest creatures.





Fey Tarot   

A gorgeous and unique tarot of the Fey, not the British fairies, but a more universal variety depicted in art with an anime feel. The Fey Tarot is a well-thought out and carefully designed tarot set for readers of all ages - and a beautiful, playful deck full of its own unique magic.





Fire Tarot   

The Fire Tarot takes the myth of fire in all its forms and interprets it through tarot-related scenes. The major arcana each depict a god linked with fire, while the minor suits are linked with fire as help, spiritual and sacred fire, emotional fire, and earthly fire.





French Cartomancy   

The French Cartomancy deck is a 36-card oracle, a reconstruction of a deck from the era of Mlle. Lenormand. The cards are numbered but untitled, and feature pastoral scenes with a playing card inset.





Gay Tarot   

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.





Ghost Tarot

Giotto Tarot   

A tarot in the style of 13th century Italian painter Giotto di Bondone, which seems unusually still and posed to my modern eye. But the Giotto Tarot is a workable deck, once you are familiar with its system.





Golden Botticelli Tarot   

The Golden Botticelli Tarot was created by the talented Atanassov in the style of the Italian Renaissance artist, Botticelli, who is most famous for the Birth of Venus. The 78 cards are fully illustrated and have small gold elements in the patterns and backgrounds.





Golden Tarot of Klimt   

The Golden Tarot of Klimt is inspired by the artistic style of early twentieth-century Austrian painter, Gustav Klimt. The art is vivid and sensual, interspersed with mosaic patterns and accented with gold metallic accents.





Golden Tarot of the Renaissance

Golden Tarot of the Tsar   

A luxurious looking tarot based on the iconic art of Russian Orthodox Christianity. The Golden Tarot of the Tsar is one of Lo Scarabeo's metallic decks - the saints and biblical scenes have textured gold backgrounds.





Golden Universal Tarot   

The Golden Universal Tarot is a re-printing of the Universal Tarot by Roberto de Angelis, a redrawn and more dynamic version of the Rider-Waite. This edition has selected symbols and imagery decorated with gold foil on its 78 cards.





Gothic Tarot of Vampires   

A tarot of the depths - not only the superficial aspects - of the Vampire mythos. Sensual, violent, spiritual, and somber, the Gothic Tarot of Vampires is dark and contemporary and, yes, sometimes bloody.





Harmonious Tarot   

The Harmonious Tarot is pretty, light and flowery, like sitting in a rose garden on a sunny spring afternoon. The Tarot art, mostly by Victorian artist Walter Crane (with some additions by Fitzpatrick) is romantic, heavily floral, and quite easily readable.





Heart Tarot   

The Heart Tarot "celebrates a vital, unimaginably potent force in our lives: love. Whether inspired by romance, family, friendship, or God, this powerful emotion is at the heart of humanity." It's only the second heart-shaped deck published.





Initiatory Tarot of the Golden Dawn   

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.





Kamasutra Tarot   

The Kamasutra Tarot is based on the "textbook of desire" best known as a catalogue of sexual positions. The cards are indeed graphic, but are intended to reflect fourth century attitudes towards sex rather than modern Western views. The imagery across the cards is also deliberately repetitive, so that the subtle cues of posture and body language of the couple are more obvious.





Karma Oracle   

The Karma Oracle is a 33 card divination oracle, representing ancient Indian gods and goddesses. The cards are very brightly coloured and patterned.





Labyrinth Tarot   

The Labyrinth Tarot is an art deck from Luis Royo, creator of the Black Tarot. The major arcana are finely detailed monochromatic art pieces, while the minor arcana suits of Wands, Pentacles, Cups and Spades are decorated pip cards.





Law of Attraction Tarot   

The Law of Attraction Tarot is inspired by the best-selling book, The Secret, and its promise to help manifest anything you want in life. The 78-card deck is quite different in most imagery and meaning from standard decks, and is intended to help you achieve your dreams.





Lenormand Oracle   

The Lenormand Oracle is a larger-sized set of 36 cards in the Petit Lenormand tradition. The simple, down to earth cards are printed on sturdy cardstock and come with a 160-page companion book explaining the meanings and how to read Lenormand cards.





Lenormand Oracle Cards   

The Lenormand Oracle Cards, published by Lo Scarabeo, are a reproduction of a French Lenormand deck from 1890. The 36 cards have elegant, soft imagery with a serene and spacious feel.





Liber T: Tarot of Stars Eternal   

The Tarot of Stars Eternal is a reworking of the Aleister Crowley Thoth Tarot by Dante Tarot artist Andrea Serio. The majors are very similar to Crowley's Thoth, but the minors have been expanded and have an emphasis on Decans.





Lo Scarabeo Tarot   

The Lo Scarabeo Tarot celebrates the twentieth year of the Italian publishing house, with a deck combining all three major traditions - the Tarot de Marseilles, the Rider-Waite and the Thoth. In imagery, the cards seem like more of a blend of the latter two, but they have plenty of scope for comparative study as well as for readings.





Ludy Lescot Tarot   

The Ludy Lescot Tarot is a mysterious deck from the perspective of Ludy Lescot, "a young esoteric and student of the arts, whom one could meet on the steamy streets in the New Orleans French Quarter". It's an expressive 78-card deck that's a bit different.





Manara: The Erotic Tarot   

By Italian comic-book artist Milo Manara, this tarot is a mix of eroticism and fantasy. Its imagery is explicit, in the same way as the Casanova Tarot, but it doesn't go to the sexual extreme of the Priapo Tarot.





Manga Tarot   

This Manga Tarot is a a deck connected with the Eastern imagination, as illustrated in the comics known as manga. It has attractive artwork which is in the manga/anime style (but not exaggeratedly so), and the symbolism is fairly recognisable. There is one significant change however - cards that traditionally showed a man now show a woman, and vice versa.





Mantegna Tarot   

This wonderful deck is a tarot ancestor, with only fifty cards. The Mantegna Tarot artwork, originally created in 1460, has been recoloured and highlighted with silver. What appears as mottled dark grey in the digital scans is actually bright silver foil.





Marseille Cat Tarot   

The Marseille Cat Tarot light-heartedly merges the historical French tarot tradition and anthropomorphic cats, with various furry felines in place of the human characters on the cards. The deck is illustrated with strong primary colours, but more refined artwork than the traditional woodcut prints. The minor arcana also have small feline scenes amidst the pips.





Mayan Tarot   

The Mayan Tarot is inspired by the pre-Columbian, Central American culture of the Mayas. The colourful majors have the familiar cartoonish look of Mayan art, while the minors show a small rock etching-like illustration and large suit symbols.





Medieval Tarot   

The Medieval Tarot is from the same author who illustrated the Bruegel Tarot and the Giotto Tarot, but this is a more generic deck of the Middle Ages in scene and costume.





Mibramig Magical Tarot   

The Mibramig Magical Tarot is a quirky look into the imagination of artist Mibramig. A light-hearted and joyful interpretation of the tarot universe, it's best for the more advanced tarot reader. The 79-card deck also includes an extra card for the Happy Squirrel.





Michelangelo Tarot   

The Michelangelo Tarot is inspired by and illustrated in the style of the Italian artist, Michelangelo. The tarot scenes are rely heavily (and successfully) on body language to convey the meaning. From Lo Scarabeo and the artist who also created the Giotto Tarot, Bruegel Tarot and the Medieval Tarot.





Minchiate Tarot   

The Minchiate Tarot is a reprint of the historical Ancient Minchiate Etruria Tarot. The deck is a photo reproduction of a Florentine Minchiate deck from 1725, which has 56 minors and 41 major arcana, with cards for the signs, planets and virtues.





Mona Lisa Tarot   

The Mona Lisa Tarot is an innovative deck that is inspired by the imagery of the painting of the same name, the Renaissancee era, and the life and imagination of Leonardo da Vinci. The card scenes often take the tarot in a new and different direction.





Native American Tarot   

This Italian-published Native American Tarot is inspired by their shamanism, spirituality, and connection with the natural world. The card art is muted, dusty and attractive -- by the same artist who created the Vikings Tarot.





Nefertari's Tarot   

An ancient Egyptian Tarot themed deck with a difference - Nefertari's Tarot has a background of goil foil to the themed illustrations on the cards. This deck is stunning, and the actual cards look even better than the digital images.





Olympus Tarot   

A tarot of the Ancient Greeks. Each card in the Olympus Tarot represents a myth, hero, monster or god from Greek legend, depicted in dramatic comic-book style.





Pagan Lenormand Oracle   

The Pagan Lenormand Oracle is the first-Pagan oriented Lenormand deck, where the traditional symbols have been re-interpreted to show Pagan symbology and beliefs. It's from Gina Pace, who also created the Pagan Tarot. Due out from Lo Scarabeo in mid 2014.





Pagan Tarot   

The Pagan Tarot, from Gina M. Pace (known as Wicce on the Internet), combines the joys and problems of everyday life with Wiccan and Pagan spirituality. The art shows Pagan scenes and is also very modern and ultra-realistic: computers feature in several cards.





Pictorial Key Tarot   

The Pictorial Key Tarot is a modernisation of the Rider-Waite Tarot images, very similar in symbolism to the original but not quite a clone. Created in a computer-generated style, the 78 cards are detailed and reasonably lifelike, but have a slightly perfect, plastic look.





Quantum Tarot: Version 2.0   

The Quantum Tarot combines modern theories of physics and quantum mechanics with tarot, through vivid space images from NASA and the Hubble telescope. It's now out in a reworked second edition from Lo Scarabeo, with two extra cards, some changed images, and new black borders.





Ramses: Tarot of Eternity   

The Ramses: Tarot of Eternity deck is another Ancient Egyptian-themed tarot, with life-like rather than stylised artwork and a real sense of history. Concentrating on the era of th Pharaoh Ramses II, the cards show events in his life as well as more mundane Egypt.





Royo Dark Tarot   

The Royo Dark Tarot is an expanded and updated version of Luis Royo's original Black Tarot. Now with larger cards, better quality images, and most importantly - fully illustrated minor arcana.





Sacred Sites Tarot   

The Sacred Sites Tarot is a deck of significant, mystical and powerful places and structures - both natural and manmade - from across the world. Its 78 cards feature everything from Stonehenge to the Ganges to the Hagia Sophia - and unusually for a deck from Lo Scarabeo, have no multi-lingual titles on the cards.





Samurai Tarot   

The Samurai Tarot is a themed deck based around the samurai tradition of feudal Japan. It has non-standard tarot imagery on the 78 cards, and detailed comic-style watercolour illustrations.





Secret Tarot   

The Secret Tarot has card scenes and costumes that are a mix of eras from medieval and Renaissance to the 19th and 20th centuries. The art is a little comic-book-ish and features female nudity, but is very atmospheric.





Sensual Wicca Tarot   

The Sensual Wicca Tarot explores sex and sexuality through the Wiccan belief system. The card illustrations generally have a Rider-Waite foundation, reinterpreted to be multicultural and Wicca. Not every card has erotic imagery, but of those that do, be warned - some verge on being X rated.





Shaman Tarot   

The Shaman Tarot explores shamanism and the shamanic journey through tarot. It has re-envisioned the traditional deck through new suits and re-named majors to better relate to the shamanic experience.





Shining Angels Tarot   

The Shining Angels Tarot is a round deck of 78 cards, with watercolour images of individual angels in tarot scenes. The round shape of the cards was chosen to remind us "of the angelic circle of love and protection always surrounding us".





Silver Witchcraft Tarot   

The Silver Witchcraft Tarot merges tarot with modern pagan symbolism and magickal understanding. Illustrated in deep, atmospheric colour, it has a multicultural cast of robed characters set in glorious nature-based scenes. The 78 borderless cards are enhanced by silver metallic edges, and there's also a companion book by Barbara Moore.





Sola-Busca Tarot   

The Sola Busca Tarot is a redrawing of the oldest existing tarot deck, printed in the late fifteenth century in Italy. The deck shows biblical, Roman and mythological imagery, and it was the first deck to show full scenes on the minor arcana cards.





Sorcerers Tarot   

The Sorcerers Tarot is an expressive and readable deck of high magicians, myth, and fairy tales. Illustrated by Antonella Castelli, who also did the Tarot Art Nouveau, it has a similar feel with its border of Celtic knotwork, though it has 78 fully illustrated cards.





Spirit of Flowers Tarot   

A sweet and cute tarot of flowers, set in a wooded fairy-tale world. Every card in the Spirit of Flowers Tarot has a realistically drawn flower and a tiny, childlike fairy associated with it.





Tarocchi degli Gnomi (Arte)   

The Tarocchi degli Gnomi is one of several version of the cute Tarot of the Gnomes from Lo Scarabeo. This art edition has 22 large, rectangular cards on thick uncoated stock.





Tarocchi dell' Alba Dorata   

The Tarocchi dell' Alba Dorata feature gnomes, elves, pixies and fairies on its 22 cards. This is the majors-only edition, published in 1990, of decks later released as the Tarots of the Golden Dawn, Tarot of the Hidden Folk and the Enchanted Tarot.





Tarocchi della Buona Tavola   

The Tarocchi della Buona Tavola translates as 'Tarot of the Good Table' and has light-hearted Tarot images celebrating food. Not actually a tarot deck, these images are from a portfolio by Antonio Lupatella with the 22 cards on 11 sheets. A limited edition of 50 copies.





Tarocchi delle Fiabe   

The Tarocchi delle Fiabe is a collaborative 22-card deck of illustrated fairytales, with art from 22 different artists. It's from Lo Scarabeo's Arte collection and the deck has rectangular cards varnished on the faces only.





Tarocchi Tharbon

Tarot of Pirates

Tarot of Reflections

Tarot of Reincarnation   

The Tarot of Reincarnation is a rather non-traditional deck, having more in common with playing cards than tarot cards. Each card is pictured by an attractive and real-looking image of an animal, which seem linked with the major arcana but less so with the minor arcana.





Tarot of Sexual Magic   

The Tarot of Sexual Magic is an erotic deck that embraces the sexual urge rather than denying it. While it has plenty of nudity, it is a touch more romantic and not as explicit as some of Lo Scarabeo's other adults-only decks.

Wiccan Cards

Yoga Tarot
