TWO NEW FOUND TAROT CARDS
One might expect the wands to be behind the greenery, as they are behind the figure on the Rider/Waite/Smith deck. But the above arrangement works for me, especially with the more "negative" new slant on this card I tapped into last night: Most of the wounding and pain you are feeling now is self-inflicted in your attempts to stay in denial. How did I come to that? I was looking closely at the odd expression on the face of the figure on the Rider/Waite/Smith Nine of Wands, almost fearful. As if he weren't resting after a difficult but successful battle, but being hemmed in or about to be attacked by the wands behind him. These cards can be such helpful nets in which to catch our own projections. Here's the Nine of Wands in the Rider/Waite/Smith deck:
The other card I found today is The Hermit.
If the image above for The Hermit puzzles you -- I've not shown it to anyone at this point, so I'm not sure how it comes across -- check out that shadow on the road.
There are more photos I've identified as possible Found Tarot cards. But I'll leave those for future posts. I might change my mind anyway, or take new photos that are more suiting (and certainly better technically; I'm still a newbie photog). I'm beginning to think that this deck may never wind up an actual physical 78 card deck. I have at least three Aces of Cups, and multiples of other cards. The Tower has at least a half dozen possibles, most of which I really like. It may just be that it's this process that's important. And that's fine with me. :-)
‘til next time, keep enjoying The Tarot,
