CONTINUING WITH THE FOUND TAROT, by Roswila
This first new Found Tarot card I took the picture for weeks ago. But did not see The Empress in it until I'd begun using it on my desktop. I've always liked the feel of that little door; I kept thinking of it as a mysterious hobbit door. But then it hit me that III's Hebrew letter is Dalath, which in noun form means door! The association I have always made to that is She is our doorway into life. BTW, this door is to one side of Hillel Foundation's Jewish Student Center (Isla Vista, CA). So I think it's highly appropriate I made a Hebrew letter association, albeit unconsciously.
This next Found Tarot card I'm a little unsure of, but only because I don't usually have a sense of the color red or fuchsia associated with The Star. But those "whiskers" (stamens?) just make me feel The Star's abundance pouring down on us. And the shape is rather star-like. I saw The Star in the process of cropping this picture.
Here's one that hit me as I took the fourth photo of this planter from yet a different angle.
THE HANGED MAN
And this next I'm saying is the Eight of Wands, even though there aren't technically 8 definite branches in it. To me it just so clearly called up the Rider/Waite/Smith Eight of Wands when I saw it on my computer screen, that that's what I'm saying it is. So there! :-)
EIGHT OF WANDS
This is one of my personal favorite photos. I had it up on my desktop, and even hung a small print for a while on my front door. The card within only surfaced (at least to my eye) after my first couple of Found Tarot posts had already been done.
TWO OF WANDS
And that's the last, at least for today. I can't stop taking lots of pictures. It's like Lay's potato chips, I can't have just one!
‘til next time, keep enjoying The Tarot,
