Tarot Art

Last year I embarked upon a series of interactive art projects utilizing the tarot. I finished the last one this week. My purpose was to create something I could use to interpret the cards, keeping with my commitment to better understand the cards and their meanings. I was inspired to begin these projects by the book Complete Book of Tarot Spreads by Evelin Burger and Johannes Fiebig. This easy to use book gives many ideas for layouts that are clear, concise, and easily tailored to fit anyone’s needs. My thought was to take some of these spreads that one might use throughout the year in their card readings, and create something that you could use for focus. Let me explain. I was first taken by the idea that one could do a reading for the year. Spread 96 is a variation on a reading for the cycle of the year. This variation is a monthly card that cycles through all 12 months. I collaged an accordian fold pocket book that would stand up on my alter. I could tuck a card into a pocket for each month of the year and use as a focus for the big picture of the year. Keeping it on my alter gave me a way to go back throughout the year and reflect. Then, when speaking with William about it, he suggested one could shorten it to four pockets to reflect the Seasons. Great idea! Then it occurred to me, one could use it for really any milestones. The possibilities are endless.
