A truly macabre design―a tarot deck in the shape of the coffin!
The Macabre Tarot tempts you to turn away from the light and embrace the dark. While following the traditional tarot structure, the deck takes a look at the darker sides of the cards and implores you to embrace all the spooky things that lurk in the shadows. You will be pushed down the rabbit hole of your own psyche and forced to face your darkest thoughts. This unique deck is based on the traditional Rider Waite system but with suites being Crystals, Cups, Bones and Daggers.
Be warned: this deck is not for the lighthearted or weak-spirited.
This tarot deck can be read in infinite ways, so it's important to explore the many avenues before settling on a specific path.
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 named as follows: Terror (The Page), Nightmare (The Knight), Haunting (The Queen), Massacre (The King).
