Unlike most religious paths, Wicca sees all aspects of life, including sexuality, as divine. This deck is primarily an international Pagan Tarot: The Hanged Man shows a Native American hanging from a tree limb. The Stars shows an African in loose pantaloons, his arms outstretched. The Moon shows a statue of Anubis in front of pyramids. The 4 of Cups shows a mournful young Asian woman with three spilled cups and one cup upright.
Yes, this deck includes sensual and naked imagery that is imaginative and powerful. The Lust [Strength] card shows a naked woman astride a galloping horse, clearly ecstatic with a lust for life itself. The Lovers has a pose from the Kama Sutra.
This deck is filled with crisp, attractive art enveloped by a violet border and back. If you get the deluxe set you'll also receive a magnificent purple satin bag. It's lined in silver and the exterior of this drawstring bag is embroidered with silver Wiccan symbols: the full moon with waxing and waning moons on either side and a pentagram in the center. Above it is a dagger and below is a chalice and wand.
The Sensual Wicca Tarot cleverly unites concepts of Wiccan sensuality and Pagan concepts within the structure of the Tarot. The result is a modern Tarot deck that is perfect for meditation and all forms of divination. It is especially useful for relationship readings. If you're looking for a "sex positive" Tarot that is modern and Pagan friendly, this deck is for you!
