Last Friday I posted some cards from the Bird People Tarot deck that I've been working on in no particular order because that’s the way I do things. It occured to me that we could all learn Tarot together as I go. For example, the first 22 cards of a Tarot deck (The Major Arcana) are the most powerful cards that are in the deck and “are based on the Hebrew system of numbers and the alphabetical sequence of its 22 letters. In fact, the name Tarot [pronounced “ta-roh”] is closely related to the Hebrew word Torah.”
I also was mistaken last week when I said I need to make 72 cards. I actually have to make 78 pieces of art, but I'm cool with that because it’ll help me learn and remember the meanings of the cards rather than using books during a reading. I’ve decided to break each card down to five words that describe the card in its upright position and five words that describe its reversed position in a reading. After the Major Arcana there comes the Minor Arcana (which are all the suit cards) that have elements attached to them just like in Astrology. For example:
For today’s Freaky Friday installment, I decided to reveal three more cards from The Bird People Tarot Deck. Two cards are from the Minor Arcana and one card is from the Major Arcana. I’m hoping by posting this weird shit, it will motivate me to continue working on the deck and learn more about Tarot. And really, what else are we going to do right now.
Enjoy and please keep safe and well.
