It’s tempting to assign gender to the Archetypes of Masculine & Feminine but this is often a folly because no matter what you outwardly identify with the most we all have qualities of the Masculine and Feminine or as Carl Jung puts it the Anima and Animus.
This topic is ginormous but Cyndera and Julienne focus on how these archetypes show up in the major arcana. Julienne parses out several sets based on themes of how the archetypes manifest in the world and as usual the conversation ranges from the personal to the political and how we can use the mythology of tarot for a better understanding of ourselves and our world.
Julienne’s sets of the Major Arcana for contemplation of the Masculine & Feminine Archetypes.
Androgynous (Containing both at once organically)
Dualistic (containing both but with distinction between the two)
Open Masculine (Externally masculine but requiring aspects of feminine interiority.)
Open Feminine (Externally feminine but requiring aspects of masculinity)
