I've been waiting for this set to be published many years. The wait was well worth it!!

First off the presentation is excellent. A long colourful and gorgeous box that has a ribbon opener and a magnetic closure holds the deck and very large book. What a great storage concept!

I had seen the online scans of each card, but they certainly didn't do the images and colours justice! I oohed and ahhed as I paged through the deck. Each card is just wonderful! The Gods, legends, folk hero's and the like presented here are extremely diverse. There are many of my favourites and quite a few very new to me! The Gods etc are very well lined up with each card and it's generally accepted meaning. This is a whole new world opening up to me!

The cardstock is very sturdy, a matte lamination and a vibrant red sun in the center of the backs....completely reversible. The cards are about average in size, to me just the right size!

The book is huge, extremely well-researched and written. The stories, legends and folktales are fascinating and fit right in with the meanings, which are very knowledgable and written beautifully. I am having the most wonderful time looking through the deck, having a card catch my eye then reading the story and meaning behind the name and image. They fit together wonderfully! This book is one of the best written, researched, in-depth and fascinating companion books for a deck I've ever read.

Buy this set, it's truly one of a kind. No other Tarot decks are devoted just to the masculine divine and legend. The cards and images are top-rate and the book is excellent absorbing reading. You're going to come away from spending time with this set incredibly richer in knowledge and wisdom!

This is a remarkable Sacred Tool of extraordinary power and versatility. When I first opened the handsome box, I was intrigued and frankly a bit puzzled as to how I might be able to use it.

But when a gay male pagan friend asked for a birthday oracular reading recently, and said he was looking for 12 Sacred Tasks which he could attempt in the coming year, I knew that no ordinary Tarot cards would suffice. I needed a truly out-of-the-ordinary tool. That turned out to be "The Sol Invictus -- The God Tarot".

This tool is highly versatile. It is fine for "as below" mundane questions about whether to buy that new home. But it is in the "as above" questions about Sacred Issues that the "Sol Invictus" cards really come into their own -- issues about your Spiritual Home, about which Spiritual Path you might choose to take to reach it.

The artistry of the cards may strike some as being a bit "naive" or "primitivistic". But, like much so-called "folk art", the art of these cards conveys powerful symbols in easily understood colours and forms without superfluous abstraction.

The hefty book which accompanies these cards is worth the purchase price by itself. I have never read such a concise yet scholarly compilation of pan-cultural myths. No matter how well-versed you believe you are in global mythology, this book will surprise you with new information you had never read before.

The presentation is erudite and yet quite personal. It is as though you have sat down with the authors for tea and they are excitedly telling you about their amazing discoveries about gods from all over the world.

And even if you are a jaded old Tarot reader who has "read it all before", you will delight at the mythological insights into the Tarot which this book offers.

I think it is absolutely unfair to judge a tarot deck based solely on whether or not you, the card reader, are intune with the energies of a specific deck. I am a man who happens to be very good at tarot. Now, I don't neccessarily like the Motherpeace Tarot, but I would never ever deny its prophetic or magickal relevance because that would be denying the feminine part of myself. In fact, I may even buy the Motherpeace Tarot deck as a companion deck to the Sol Invictus-- Why?-- Because I truly believe they would work together harmoniously to balance masculine and feminine energies in my life. Regardless, I think ANY male tarot enthusiast would really enjoy this deck and will probably use it more often than most of their other decks.

The Sol Invictus is also extremely effective in summoning, invoking and accessing the various energies of the Masculine Divine. The power of this tarot deck should not be taken lightly, and it definately needs to be respected. Both the masculine and feminine need to be respected because they are equally important and equally valid. In the Spirit Realm, the scale isn't tipped in either camps' favor, and there is a strict and important balance between the two. Maybe this deck can help you bring balance to the physical plane as well.

Very highly recommended!

First I wanna say that a God-Themed-Tarot was long overdue and I appreciate the idea and the work. But when it comes to maskuline archetypes they should be displayed in a grown up manner. And in my personal opinion and to my personal taste the "Sol Invictus" Deck doesnt manage to do that at all. The artwork of the cards is just to infantile and every god or archetype looks soft and childish. That might be okay for the card "Peter Pan" or the feminine god Shiva but its defenitely disturbing on gods like Loki, Tyr, Odin, and so on. For me the pictures are a very important energy-source in tarot and here they look simply like displayed in a book for kids. Without any "edges". And in my opinion that just doesnt work out.

The positive about the set, and the reason why I didnt give it just two stars, is the book and - as mentioned - the ambition and idea behind the project. As A Witch going through a lot of international articles and press i stumbled about an interview with the creators, prior to the release, and I was exited and felt very strong with the topic. So I highly anticipated the release of "Sol Invictus". But I expected the deck itself to be stronger in "style" and masculine expression.

The book itself is very good, though with some cards the author stretches the divinatory meaning and interpretation a little to far. Still the information is great, informative, well written and it shows the passion for the project.

Never mind. It's just my personal view. But for me the cards dont work and I will continue to find the gods stronger displayed in various oracle decks and other pagan based tarots.

Still good luck with the deck!
