Tarot Cards and the Artist

 

Tarot cards are reputed to have evolved from ancient egypt. About 1200
they mysteriously came to Europe and then England. There is much of
ancient Christian ethic and medieval chivalry and English/Scottish fae
tradition wound up in them. A yogi told me that the cards tended to
structure their fortune telling powers in the medieval past and
therefore were in need of update for the new age. Hence my fae tarot.
The tarot tend to reveal what is already in ones mind dynamically, and
then the future from that; at least that is how it works with me. The
artistic feature in each card sets up the fortune telling quality of the
position of the card. very interesting for an artist.!
