Meet the Prince of Swords & A New Way to Learn Tarot

If this your first time visiting my blog please take a moment to subscribe to my blog while you are here either via RSS or email.

There is no questioning that tarot is a visual medium. Yet we spend a lot of time ascribing words to these works of art. The problem is that language by its nature limits and excludes so that it can create a definition. I think we should let the art do the talking. In my deck, Tarot Waiting to Happen, I started a process of using art to question our assumptions about the traditional meanings of the cards. In this weekly series I am going to share images of the cards intended to invoke questions rather than produce answers.

If you accept this challenge please share your interpretation of the artwork I share. Even better would be to come up with a question you think this card is asking us and share that.


Please say hello to the Prince of Swords.

How does this art relate to what you think about the Prince of Swords? What do you think this character would ask you?

    Should I ask her out or just go straight for the high score on this Angry Birds?

    Who am I communicating with? Am I using the right modes of communication? What am I exposed to? Where am I?

  4. Alexandra

    For me it relates to the Prince of Swords in terms of highlighting communication. Also being focused on information of some kind.

    The Prince of Swords will not believe anything unless he sees it in writing. He would rather trust a book than a friend. He is looking @ his phone in order to gather even more information to support his side of the argument. He could be saying, “look, I’ll show you why your’e wrong”
