The Macabre Tarot
Step into the darkness and release your fears.
Don't let the clever packaging, engaging Artwork and stunning gold gilded cards fool you into thinking The Macabre Tarot is a just a light-hearted Rider-Waite-Smith monster mash-up. The artwork is beguiling in the best way. The cards are designed to draw you deep into your own psyche and bring you face to face with the darker parts of yourself that you might rather keep hidden away. This is where powerful shadow-work can take place, allowing you to explore all aspects of yourself and emerge more complete on the other side. It is only through exploring your darkest sides that you can find you way into the light.
Be warned: this deck is not for the light-hearted or weak spirited.

Although The Macabre Tarot was designed with the traditional 78-card structure in mind some changes have been made, the most noticeable being the removal of the restrictive gender binary. All gendered cards have been renamed; however, they do retain their original meanings. The retitled majors are noted, and the court cards have been renamed as follows:
The Page: Terror
The Knight: Nightmare
The Queen: Haunting
The King: Massacre
