Art of Tarot 2

This post was written by Barbara Moore

In this series, we are taking the time to smell the roses, which for tarot lovers often means taking the time to really appreciate a single image of tarot art.

Today we are looking at the 9 of Pentacles from the Llewellyn Tarot by Anna-Marie Ferguson. Here can see more images HERE.
I love the golden warm of this card and the charming lines of Anna-Marie’s work. The geese, the tilt of the woman’s hand, the curve of the wheat…these are all so elegant and really suit the image. What I find particularly interesting about this version of the 9 of Pentacles is the inclusion of another person, which is very unusual. He is clearly not “with” the woman, but seems more like a steward or manager. So this adds to the meaning. We often say this is the “self-made woman,” but this reminds us that the world she’s made may be quite large, requiring people, under her direction, to help keep things running.
