    Default Symbolism in Tarot

    I've been threatened with bodily harm, so I am starting this thread.

    Help yourself with silly comments--what I like about Tarot is the symbolism. I'm not a big fan of the Stick Figure Tarot deck and the Thoth deck leaves me wanting something less structured.

    RC007 wants a fun thread. Not sure what that means exactly--let's find out!

    I often enjoy looking through the imagery in various Tarot decks. Here's an online spot that often gives a peek into a good number of decks:

    Voyager Tarot's Card a Day.

    Great deck for free association.

    I have a copy of Dave McKeen's tarot deck, the art is amazing (!).

    I think the Tarot is hooey as a foretelling device, but I think the archetypes are fascinating to study and use as metaphor, obviously they resonate with people on a deep level.

    Case in point: Check out my "Card of the Day!"



    Oh... this is SOOOOOO me.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Devil's Play. What else?

    I've always been interested in Tarot, but kept that to myself. Until now.

    Really.

    It's good enough for Jung, it's good enough for me.

    I can just picture Jung screwing around with the Gummibear Tarot deck, can't you?

    Oh yeah, and I think you should do readings for people [as you see fit, being the expert and all ] and post the results here. We could poke at the archetypes that come up. That'd be fun. Like watching-cartoons-fun, but, uh more textual.

    Or something.

    I tried to find that Pearson test online, but it looks like I will have to suck it up and buy a book... Sigh. More money to support my habit.

    But it could be amusing to see Crowsie do some tarot readings. I hope there's only one Death card in her deck.
