You may have heard that I’m creating my own Tarot deck. So far, I’ve finished the Aces, and I wanted to show them to you. I hope you like the imagery. I decided on insects as my theme because I like making them. I’m doing my best to use insects that I can associate with the suits, the elements they represent, and the individual cards. That’s why I used larvae and pupae on the Aces. I may throw in an Arachnid or two in the Major Arcana.
- The Ace of Pentacles has a Ladybug larva.
- The Ace of Wands has an and guarding pupae.
- The Ace of Swords has a bee tending to larvae in the hive.
- The Ace of Cups has a Monarch butterfly larva feeding on a leaf.
I hope to have the deck finished this Autumn, and available for you. It all depends on the method of distribution I end up with. I’m thinking of reaching out to a couple of Tarot publishers.
What do you think of the cards so far?
