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 series I am going to share images of the cards intended to invoke questions rather than produce answers. If you are excited to create you own cards please check out my new offering – A Tarot of You.
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 motivates infidelity?
Life is rarely as straightforward as we would like to think. Often things don’t work out like we planned. Yet hope and loss of faith both encourage us to things that we never thought we’d do.
