One of my many Tarot-projects-in-progress is the Tabloid Tarot, a celebrity themed deck I started working on at the beginning of the year.
I haven’t managed to get much time to focus on it lately but I think it’s calling me again. I’ve got a growing pile of old magazines, and it’s about time I get to them.
In the meantime though, I thought I’d share two cards I’ve already got started.
They’re the High Priestess and the Empress, two of Tarot’s female heavyweights. Numerically, they follow one another in the deck and I often see them as different sides of the same woman.
In the Tabloid Tarot, that duality is made clear by using images of the beautiful Amber Rose in two different personas – the Ice Blue Fluffed Marshmallow Priestess and the Warm Golden Whipped Cream Empress.
