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.

Trying to put a character into the role of one of the court cards is a great way to learn to understand the court cards. Who you think this is? Please feel free to guess any of the 16 cards. Don’t worry about the gender of the card or the person I think they are old fashioned and limiting.
