The New Tarot

May 24th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

There have been a number of new Tarot Kickstarter projects lately, and today I’m writing about another one.

It’s called The New Tarot and was designed by Warren Tusk and illustrated by Leslie Minnis.

What’s particularly interesting about this deck is that the creators don’t consider it just another version of the traditional Tarot, but rather as a sequel, or maybe a Tarot Pt. 2.

The New Tarot examines what might happen after the Fool graduates through the enlightenment of the World card. It looks at where he goes once he gets out into the ‘real world’ so to speak.

Tusk describes his deck as being ‘calibrated for outward-focused queries concerned with tangible goals and interactions between people….”

And in order to achieve his new vision, he’s come up with twenty-one new Major Arcana, including cards like Sanctuary and Fellowship.

The Minor Arcana has been completely revamped as well. No Cups, Coins, Wands, or Swords. The New Tarot explores life through the Suits of Keys, Chains, Masks, and Tomes.

Though I’m not convinced that the traditional Tarot is lacking when it comes to questions of a tangible nature, I think The New Tarot is an interesting idea, and hope that Tusk and Minnis raise the funds they need to make it happen.

Take a look at their video promo below to see what you think.

And visit The New Tarot Kickstarter page to see some of the cards, and to find out what goodies they’re offering to people who donate.

Mercury in Gemini – Magician in the Lovers' Angel's Clothing

Magician dressed in the Lovers' Angel's Clothing

Magician as the Lovers’ Angel

Mercury moves into Gemini today, and stays there until June 7th.

Looking at this transit through the eyes of the Tarot, it would be like the Magician has taken on the clothes of the Lovers’ Angel. He’s put down his tools and put on some wings.

Mercury in Gemini, or the Magician in the Lovers’ Angel’s clothing, is a time of quick thinking and brilliant communication.

It’s a great opportunity to exchange ideas, share thoughts, open hearts and let yourself think things you might not have ever before.

You don’t have to commit to anything you’re not ready for. But if you do decide on something, it’s a good time to get as educated about it as you can. If ever there was a time to learn something new, this is it.

From the Magician’s ‘I will,’ to the Lovers’, ‘I do’, this is a call to take your ideas to the next step.

What is it that you’d like to do? If you’re really serious, try it now.

Ace of Disks

Start that new project now!  I know it’s just the beginning and you can hardly see how it’s going to manifest, but manifest it will.  The Ace of Disks is the seed that begins all new physical realities.

Is it a new job?  A novel approach to an old one?  Trying to get a project off the ground?  Starting a new workout or eating regime?

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have all the details yet. What’s important right now is to start working.  Do it with the confidence that it’s going to succeed – in the real world.

All great trips require a first step. This is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.  Take the step and start the journey.
