Arwen Lynch explores the Major Arcana through a fictional series as the Fool and his dog meet the archetypes.
Here's an excerpt for you from the Fool Meets Judgment:
Just as the sun blended its first ray with the horizon to create an amazing shade of orange, the Fool crested the top of a hill. He stumbled to a halt when he saw an Angel looming on the horizon. Behind the angel were humungous waves that seemed to be frozen. They almost looked like mountains to the Fool. The red wings spread out behind the angel who blew a trumpet that had the flag of St. George adorning it.
As the Fool watched, he realized he couldn’t hear the trumpet. But beneath him, he saw a cemetary where the tops of the crypts were being tumbled aside. The dead were rising up! The Fool gasped in horror then realized that they all stretched their arms and faces up to the Angel. They didn’t seem aware of him.
Ferol Humphrey does an excellent job reviewing the Silver Era Tarot, which was not a deck I was familiar with, over on her blog.
Excerpted from her review:
The Silver Era Five of Pentacles is almost colorful, in a pleasing and uplifting way, which is a bit of a surprise, given the traditional view of Five of Pentacles. In most Rider-Waite-Standard Tarot decks this card is viewed as somewhat negative, often indicating poverty or poverty of spirit, at the very least. In The Silver Era Tarot, two people are moving past a window, looking straight ahead, rather than up and around at the world. Floating unnoticed in front of this window are five balls~ teal, grey, and black, containing pentacles (stars). They are quite colorful and rich, attracting my eye in this otherwise restful color palette of greys, tans, creams, and browns.
- thanks for introducing me to this stunning deck, Ferol!
TWPT did a great job of highlighting Barbara Moore and her new Steampunk Tarot.
Excerpted from their interview:
TWPT: What was it about the Steampunk culture in general that attracted you to it and that you connected with personally?
BM: The clothes, the manners, the cool devices. The mixing of elements that don’t seem to go together, like bustles and time machines. I’ve always loved that sort of thing. Tarot is like that…pairing systems and structures with mysticism and intuition. The answer to the next question answers this as well, so move on to the next to hear more!
TWPT: Was there a moment after you had been exposed to Steampunk when youthought to yourself that a Steampunk tarot deck might be something youwould be interested in doing? Could you walk me through your thoughts as youconsidered this idea.
BM: Yes. When I bought that necklace I mentioned earlier, I showed it to a colleague of mine, Andrew (I dedicated the project to him), telling him how excited I was that this thing I loved had a name. And when a thing has a name, well, that means it has a following. That means more creative stuff and people to talk to. As I told him what I loved about it—the mixing of looks, the clothes (yes, I know, but I do love them!), the idea of imagining “what if”—I realize that Steampunk is pretty much what I think tarot is. Steampunk starts with what is (Victorian era), imagine adding different elements (futuristic technology…and more and more these days, super- and preter- natural phenomena), and see what happens. A tarot reading looks at what is, plays with possibilities, and tries to identify outcomes of various options.
As I got more and more excited, Andrew, said, “then you should make a Steampunk Tarot.”
It's completely nuts to me how much this card has continued to surface for me this year. Here's what Angelpaths has to say about it:
"When the card comes up to indicate a change in some-one's response, we see the woman in love - entering into the deepest and most emotional realms of her personality, and returning refreshed and invigorated.
Sometimes the card will come up to indicate a woman acting as priestess of the Goddess. "
- but they've got a much more extensive explanation of the card's meaning and also a ton of info about working with the Queen of Cups. Enjoy!
I really appreciate Tarot Elements' tack of productivity on this card. Their featuring of the Revelations Tarot's image here is also appreciated. I love how she puts it, too : "While this is primarily aimed at work and working, this card also talks of doing a good job, no matter what the job is."
- that seems about right to me. I've always read it as getting a ball rolling, too..
