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.
Can I buy you a drink?
How people approach us makes all the difference. I am not talking about the art of picking people up but about what endears people to us? Who has the ability to make us comfortable from the get go? What would get you to join this character for a conversation?
Do you need help building the life you want? I love helping people make their dreams come true. I’d be happy to help you draft some great plans and put them into action. I am available in person in Toronto and through Skype or the phone anywhere you are connected. Email me or call me 647 286-8739.
