Friday, April 10
I am fascinated by Tarot cards. I must have eight or ten decks. I love the imagery on the cards and the intuitive significance I find when I draw a card in answer to a question. I have studied Tarot with Jeanne Fiorini, an expert practitioner in Tarot. I have notebooks and books that I can refer to for more interpretive ideas when I do a reading for myself. I do not read the cards for other people. I have not done a reading for myself in a long time, but I will sometimes pull a card for the day to see what is there for me to consider. I think that my intuitive skills are stronger because of the Tarot.
Some of the art I create is connected to the Major Arcana in Tarot, the list on the righthand side of the page. I have made tiny Tarot houses for individual cards. I created a series of Fool image cards and three-dimensional constructions for The Fool, The Magician, The Hanged Man. I made a stained glass piece for The Empress. I have made personal shrines that include Tarot images or symbols. I have created a series of 52 cards based on drawing a card for the week for a year. Some of these things I have given away, some I have sold, and some I keep. I guess this post reminds me that there is still work I can do based on the Tarot, both for myself and for others.
