OK, you'll have to give me some time to find the deck - I have almost 1000 now and they aren't really organized! LOL  As soon as I find it, I'll take pics of the cards you are interested in seeing.

You may have to send me your e-mail address; I'm not sure I could post them here -maybe Adam will see this exchange and let us know.

I purchased the deck on Ebay about 8 years ago, simply because I'd never seen it before and I was intrigued. I've never seen it again since. Any curiosity I had was quickly and effectively eradicated... for a straight person, this deck is over the top TMI!!!    :?

The Lovers is called The Inner Union

Strength is called The Master of the Self

The Courts are all Lords; elementally assigned. For example, Cups is the Suit of Water, and the four Courts are Lord of Water ofEarth, Lord of Water of Air, Lord of Water of Fire, and Lord of Water of Water.

I'm still holding onto the decks at present as there are only 40 left in existence.

The deck was developed based upon my own 35 years of education in the occult and the Magickal nature of Tarot.

For the first time the inner names of the Tarot are revealed and how they relate to the underlying law of Like attracts Like, which is both responsible for the manifestation of Homosexuality and the basic act behind most magick etc. To the usual 78 cards I added 3 other cards which take the number to 81 = 9 which is a very special number in the true process of Divination.

No true divination can be achieved by using solely a physical object. The object can only be used as a focus. the divination act takes place at finer levels of manifestation. this is simply because the physical world is ruled by time and space, the inner worlds hold the idea of time and space but are less restricted. Only by achieving a relationship with the forces that each tarot image portrays can the cards truly speak and provide clear, true information.

The major arcana represent the degrees of magickal development towards godhood.

The minor arcana represent the forces and acts utilised and the abilities achieved through this development.

Thanks for the information.  Of course, I'm disppointed to learn that the decks are not available.  I came across a very interesting one recently "The Uraniun Tarot Deck". I had not heard of it.

If you do decide to release some of the decks, PLEASE let me know.

Thanks!

the extra three cards are called the forbidden magick cards and relate to the high art of true Sorcery, that is the full control of the flesh via the Will of the Spirit as symbolised by the unnumberd card the fool. 3 is the number of the fool when made manifest in the duality of creation. The major arcana can be split into 3 developing circles each one surrounded by duality in varying lesser degrees of restriction. The way of the tarot is the understanding of the various manifestations of Duality and its transcendance and thus there are always 2 cards each symbolising a negative and the other a positive principle with a dual or non polar card either before, between or after them.

It was published by Brush Creek Media in 1994 as an enclosure in their magazine
"Powerplay".  I have been unable to find anyone who has that back issue,
vol. 2 no. 5, nor have any of my resources been able to locate one.

Wonderful comments on your tarot deck.....just whets my desire to learn more and have the deck.   I have only seen a few images on the internet from the deck and know they would tie in to my studies of sexuality, spirituality, and tarot.

I eagerly look forward to your release of the decks and the discussion of the cards.  It will take it's place along side of Wang.

Thanks

Jason,

That makes these cards sound even more interesting.  I very much would like to own a deck for study, meditation, divination and magick.  Please let me know when you are releasing some for sale.

Hi there! :-)

I found this forum here by searching for information about the "Gay Male Tarot".

From the sample pictures I found that seems to be quite exactly what I am searching for: a link between strong gay male sexuality and spirituality, that just seems to "fit" for me.
I am not a collector but would like to buy the deck because I think I could learn from it.

If you decide to release your remaining decks and still have one left, I would be very happy to buy one :-)

A much ignored gay tarot is the Son Tarot, which I published a few years ago.

http://www.alchemywebsite.com/tarot/art_tarot14.html

This was created by artist Chris Butler who wrote :

"When I first created the Son Tarot, I saw it as primarily a deck for gay men, created by a gay man. There didn't seem to be much in print that celebrated the spiritual side of same sex love and I wanted to articulate my own experiences through the vehicle of the Tarot."

Chris also created the imagery for the acclaimed  Quantum Tarot  but his Son Tarot seems sadly neglected and ignored.

While the subject matter of the deck itself is what originally got my attention, your comments on the magickal inspiration behind it are equally intriguing. Is your deck designed along Golden Dawn or Thoth lines? Or something else?

What is the nature of, or inspiration for, these inner names?

No true divination can be achieved by using solely a physical object. The object can only be used as a focus. the divination act takes place at finer levels of manifestation. this is simply because the physical world is ruled by time and space, the inner worlds hold the idea of time and space but are less restricted. Only by achieving a relationship with the forces that each tarot image portrays can the cards truly speak and provide clear, true information.
I agree about divination coming from within.  I take it these images were designed as you developed a relationship with the forces behind each card?

The major arcana represent the degrees of magickal development towards godhood. The minor arcana represent the forces and acts utilised and the abilities achieved through this development.
So is this deck more slanted towards meditation, divination, or is it suitable for either?

For some reason I'm reminded of Anthony Clarke's work on the Magickal Tarot (which I used to own but no longer do, sadly.) Hopefully you consider that a compliment. :)

I hope to hear more about this deck in future, and that it will eventually become available.

Hi!

I'm pretty excited to see that there are still some of these glorious decks left. When I first saw a couple of images, I knew it was a deck I needed in my collection. Please add me to the list.

I think this deck will more fully allow me to access my male spiritual side, which is extremely strong to the point that more feminine decks simply do not address.

Thank you so very much!
