I have this cool idea about connecting Tarot to the cosmos.
The Sun, Moon, Star cards are in the deck for a reason; we humans are fascinated with the heavens. I’m fascinated both with the mythological symbolism and the physics displayed above our little planet, so I thought I’d build a deck and book around my philosophy of the universe.
I went looking for pictures I could use that were already available and found that good old NASA had plenty of resources. Some really amazing resources.
I have my own story about the universe and how Tarot works within it, and my own vision of how to use these cosmic images. I’m a purist about my visual preference here, so I want to use the images without adding to them, although I plan to have clear suit symbols, names, and numbers for ready identification. This sampling of the images should give you an idea of where I’m going with the project.
Thanks for looking, and please leave a comment or email me with your impressions.
I’m looking forward to finishing my image collection by the end of 2016.
