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.
What is he building in there?
So in case you have not heard I have been busy doing construction at the new shop. All this time swinging a hammer has inspired this weeks court card. So I put it to you – Which court card is he? For bonus points I am also curious what he might have to say about what you are building in your life?
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.
