The Oraculo de la Mujer Sagrada (Oracle of the Sacred Woman), also titled the Menstrual Tarot, was created by Monica Glusman between 2006-2009.
It is published in Argentina.

I find I have a weakness for that naive art style, at least regarding tarot.

 :sd


It  interests me when an artist's ideas transcend their ability to realise them on paper.  Sometimes this tension can produce imagery that is very engaging and powerful.

The theme bothered me as much as the artwork, actually. Should I blush ?

Huh.

According to babelfish,

Mujer Sagrada is "sacred woman" in Portuguese.

Mujer Sangrada is "bleeding woman" in Spanish.

Argentina's official language is Spanish. 

I wonder if there's a pun intended somehow.

(pleads for clarification from the multilingual)

It's not a pun. When I first saw it, the title was the MENSTRUAL tarot..... and it meant it. There was information attached. Quite a lot, and quite graphic.

That was mostly what put me off. I hadn't actually seen it as sagrada at all, till Adam posted it - in fact I hadn't even noticed the n was "missing" when he did.

I have nothing against women only decks, or men only, or gay - but this felt a step too far, to me.

Ah well you know me, it's circular, so I have it  :)

I am still working out a friend to traslate at least all the card titles for me though.

Well, we're different, indeed the artwork is naive, which I don't necessarily mind, as this is not the kind of valuable art tarot I collect, however, the cards and the concept seems really great for healing work (the cards have a lot of different kinds of energy) and this is where I see the value of the deck. And indeed, it's not tarot.

Gregory, if I may add the feminine perspective here :D, these cards do bring a lot to the topic of the Sacred Feminine. I'm tempted but will resist to write about the sacredness of the menstrual cycle, the sacredness of women and what we've made of it. :bl
I can understand that the topic is not of immediate relevance to you :cl

Bang goes another one....:cl

I am a woman actually. Also known as the Granny from  Hell !  :cl

It remains of no interest to me at all - I simply DO NOT LIKE IT ! It's ugly, and I don't like the "subject matter". And the sacredness of the woman's cycle is not a topic I particularly value, either. It brings to mind some of the highly misandristic so-called feminist decks. I am into PEOPLE, not gender. The day someone brings out a sacredness of ejaculation deck...

Don't anyone even think about it...:f

ooops, I guess I'm not the first one who mistook you for a guy, sorry :f
but I must admit I had a good laugh at myself :gi

er, I know someone with a big collection of erotic tarot art, he's also into tantra, possibly the deck you mentioned already exists :hp should I find out?:gi

Indeed you are not :cl. In this thread I should have seen it coming.

I have a deck with some fairly graphic ejaculation pix actually, so I'll pass on that one.

I also find the subject yucky. 

I also don't like round decks. 

So this one probably won't find a home in my house.
